    When you read about an old idea being tried again, you can look at it two ways: 1. They tried this before; it did not work; this is the same old “stuff” repackaged; it is destined to fail. 2. Since they keep trying to get this done, there has to be some basis for that thinking and maybe these guys will figure out how to make it succeed. Welcome to the world of the FXFL – the Fall Experimental Football League. The idea here is that the FXFL will be a feeder league/developmental program that ultimately provides players to the NFL.

    Well Minnesota Vikings fans, you’ve finally got your wish; it’s Teddy Time! I do have to say that I would have been more excited about this around the first week of the season. Right now, he’s being thrown into a hot mess of a situation and asked to make the best out of it. The best thing for a rookie QB is to make sure he’s given the right tools to succeed. That means, giving him a running game, time to pass and weapons on the outside. Yep…not going to happen this year. First off, our running game left us when Adrian Peterson left. With the “next man up” mentality gave us Matt…
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers are in serious trouble

    Christopher O'Neil
    23 Sep 2014 | 8:13 am
    To say that the beating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers took on Thursday evening at the hands of the Atlanta Falcons was embarrassing would be an understatement.  But the loss was made worse by what was proven during the game; that the Bucs are simply not ready to contend in the NFC South and may be further away from contending than many thought. The first, and biggest problem that the Buccaneers have is their quarterback.  The lauded free agent acquisition of veteran signal caller Josh McCown has been nothing short of a bust three games into the season.  McCown, who put up very impressive…
  • Jerome Simpson continues to be a joke

    Wes Brunner
    19 Sep 2014 | 11:46 am
    Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Fool me three times; well…find a different uniform. Once again, Jerome Simpson has proven that he has no control over his love of drugs and alcohol. Simpson was cited for marijuana possession and an open container on July 7. With as many distractions as the Vikings have had the past week, I think it’s safe to say that we need to send him packing. The only reason that we’ve kept him around for so long was for his “potential” as a deep threat. Well, you can’t be a deep threat if you’re constantly in trouble with the law.
  • What we’ve learned from the NFL through Week 2

    James Turnage
    18 Sep 2014 | 2:27 pm
    I can describe what I haven’t seen in two weeks of the NFL in a single word; DEFENSE. I have never seen so many wide open receivers in every game I watched. That included the Vikings, the Patriots, the Packers, the Chargers, the Raiders, and the Champion Seahawks.  I knew the NFL had become an offensive league, but Sunday’s lack of defensive play was appalling. There were other indicators of what the 2014 season will be like in the next 15 weeks. Gains or losses through free agency have helped some teams and hurt others. The New York Giants are as bad as they were in 2013.
  • Is the NFL in Trouble?

    James Turnage
    18 Sep 2014 | 2:17 pm
    A commentary by James Turnage A continuing increase in the number of NFL players who are experiencing legal troubles or who have violated the league’s substance abuse policy is creating a rumble within the community of players, coaches, sports writers and fans. That, combined with rule changes, often unjustly enforced, is resulting in the question; is the NFL in trouble? Now a superstar, Adrian Peterson is in the news, and not in a positive way. Is this the result of a league which has become so greedy, it has overlooked potential problems with young men who become overnight millionaires?

    Rob Bironas, the former NFL kicker who died in a car accident Saturday night, allegedly threatened to kill some college kids at an intersection just a few minutes before the crash. According to the college students, Bironas was driving his SUV and there was a “burning smell” coming from his exhaust. Via the Tennessean, then this exchange went down: “His window was down, and we pulled up and I said, “Hey man, just a heads up, something’s burning from your exhaust. Your exhaust smells horrible, just wanted to let you know,’’ Fraley recalled telling Bironas. “He looked…

In six minutes, the following happens: "That was a game I didn't like a bit." "The way we play is embarrassing." "We're not a very good team...and we have all the voters fooled, I guess cause we beat Georgia." [this number is just to point out Spurrier gets a Georgia insult in even in the midst of destroying his own team and…

    YO YO YO This game is not technically over, but This is some of the funniest shit I've ever seen. It's fantastic, and I have nothing bad to say about it. This is not just a loss. It's art. ART. My sincere hope is that, somehow, Michigan and Florida can both stumble to six wins, play each other in a bowl, and then both coaches are fired at halftime. That's the entirety of my Christmas list.

  • A Dutchman Fought For The Right To Turn His Amputated Leg Into A Lamp

    Stacey Ritzen
    23 Sep 2014 | 9:50 am
    Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer A 53-year-old Dutchman, Leo Bonten, suffered a severe accident earlier this year that left him with a broken leg, which unfortunately did not heal as expected. When it came apparent that the leg could not be saved and that he was going to require an amputation, Bonten decided that he wanted to keep the leg to turn it into a lamp to help him deal with his loss. Nothing to see here, people grieve in different ways. At first, the Rotterdam hospital that was treating Bonten was justifiably skeptical, as there is a huge grey area in the Netherlands as to who technically owns a…

    IG It’s been a very distressing experience with the Steelers not having an insane person in their linebacking corps over the last few years, but that time is over – James Harrison is back! Are the Steelers ready to unleash all the personal fouls now that they know Roger Goodell is too busy hiding in seclusion and afraid to show his face to issue suspensions? Probably not. Pittsburgh actually just needed another player after losing linebackers Jarvis Jones and Ryan Shazier to injury for at least a few weeks in their Sunday night win over in Carolina.

Fans had been anticipating Hester breaking the record for some time and unfortunately it finally happened during one of the worst weeks of NFL news in league history, so it was somewhat overlooked.

Henne was taken out midway through the third straight awful Jaguars game, while Cassel had a bit more dignity, going out with a foot injury. While Cassel has yet to be formally benched, he’s been pretty bad this year, and Bridgewater would pretty much need to be Ryan Leaf-level awful for Mike Zimmer to think about going back to Matt.

    ESPN When the Bears jumped out to a 14-0 lead in the first few minutes of Monday Night Football, it seemed like Chicago might run away with the game. What followed was a mixture of the Jets defense tightening up and the Bears not actually being that good. The result: New York was close enough to have a chance for a tying score at the end of regulation. Anyone even remotely familiar with the Jets knew the failure to come with New York down eight with a final drive to force overtime. The only drama was what form it would take. An immediate three and out? A fumble? A touchdown with a failed…

The 28th pick in the 2009 NBA draft, Ellington signed with the Lakers on Monday, the team announced: According to Mark Medina of the L.A.

Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em. Alex Smith, QB, Kansas City Chiefs Smith threw for 186 yards and three touchdowns against the Miami Dolphins. He also ran for 17 yards. He’s not a consistent fantasy option.

    20 Sep 2014 | 6:00 am
    While Go Pro Camera's have been wildly successfully over the past handful of years, many were unsure of their choice of going public on the New York Stock Exchange. Mainly because of the uncertainty surrounding the companies ability to sustain such large levels of growth in the future and whether or not sophisticated investors would be interested in investing in the company. The most unfortunate thing for my bank account was that I failed to invest in Go Pro once the company went public.For those of you who don't follow the stock market, Go Pro Cameras has been on an uphill climb ever…

    Keith McFarland
    12 Sep 2014 | 10:51 am
    It’s rather interesting; when championships are spoken of, a great deal of people are actually speaking of surrounding social affairs.  The commentary centers upon commercials, foods, drinks, and places for getting our groove on. Sports now goes well beyond fans, sponsors, players, coaches and venues.  Factually, we can very much have sports’ how and when we like; the truly personalized experience. In today’s society, we don’t like others to encroach upon whom we support. The choice, bluntly stated, is individually ours to make. Bestow all the accolades you desire on your team, just…
  • Where Are The Ryder Cup Headlines This Year?

    Jennifer Smith
    8 Sep 2014 | 10:36 am
    The 2014 Ryder Cup is just around the corner with final team selections now announced. Play is scheduled to begin on September 23 at the Gleneagles Hotel golf course in Perthshire, Scotland. The event is the most counter-intuitive in the game of golf because it is a team event based on match play. This takes away the convenient story line for news broadcasts that love to discuss a single winner, who politely doffs his hat at the trophy celebration or bestows a photographic kiss on the brass cup he just won. The headlines also tout the enormous sums available in prize money at various events.
  • NHL Teams and Business – The Anaheim Ducks

    The Anaheim Ducks are coming off one of the best seasons in team history with regards to regular season wins. They finished second in the league behind only Boston, who edged them out by one point. They ended up winning their first round matchup vs Dallas (4-2), but were eventually defeated in round two by the Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings.  The key to the Ducks success is the incredible consistency throughout the lineup. At first glance, people just see the massive point totals coming from the Ducks’ Superstars – Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry. What most people do not notice…

    You need to learn how to play tennis mentally after you reach a certain level in this game. Everything is going to boil down to your mental game and you will always play up the imag you have of the match and your opponent.  Many players know how to play the game, but very few know how to play the mental game. The ones that do, are the ones that become Champions. The rest become good at losing and making excuses.  Which category are you in now?  Champions have mastered the mental game by learning to control their fears and dominating their emotions.  I have been studying the mental aspect…
  • Which Big Business Makes A Good Race Sponsor?

    Eitan Hefetz
    22 Aug 2014 | 9:59 am
    With sponsorship spending on endurance sports events exceeding the $108 million per year, its no wonder big business is sponsoring these events. The mid-to-high socio-economic class of endurance events participants attracts many brands to sponsor endurance events. Interestingly enough many of these big business brands are not the typical sporting brands one would expect to find. Would a laundry detergent brand make a good running race sponsor? How about a deodorant brand or a cellular carrier? Putting your brand’s logo in front of your target audience is one thing, while tying your…

  • Tommy Tuberville Not Concerned About Noise in the Horseshoe

    DJ Byrnes
    23 Sep 2014 | 9:33 am
    Tommy Tuberville is 2-0 in his career against Urban Meyer, and he will get a third crack at his old SEC foe on Saturday night, as the Buckeyes host the Bearcats. It will be a 6 PM kickoff, and night games are notoriously rowdy events. The Horseshoe, which held 107,000+ for a night game against Virginia Tech, should be rocking. Tommy Tuberville, however, doesn't seem too concerned. From today's press conference: Tuberville said he isnt worried about the number of fans at Ohio Stdm b/c they use hand signals and silent snap counts.

  • Running the Numbers: Ohio State Backfield's Division of Labor

    Michael Citro
    23 Sep 2014 | 7:10 am
    In an ideal world, Tom Herman would like to strike a 50/50 balance of run and pass, utilizing his playmakers in space on the edges, but also carving gashes in opposing defenses up the middle with his power running game. But this is not an ideal world. Braxton Miller’s shoulder imploded just a couple of weeks before the season, destabilizing an offense that was already precariously situated due to the losses of Carlos Hyde, Philly Brown and four starters on the offensive line. At the quarter mark of the season, Ohio State is still looking to fully form its offensive identity. But patterns…

    Adolphus Washington grew up in the heart of the Queen City. He played his high school football at Cincinnati Taft, just a short 2.2-mile drive from the University of Cincinnati's Nippert Stadium. He went to UC basketball games as a kid. His grandfather even worked at the university for years.  So when it came time for Washington to earn his very first Division I football scholarship offer, there was no surprise when it came from the Bearcats, who offered him as just a freshman. It was just the first of what would be many offers for the now Ohio State junior defensive lineman, but when it was…

    Racism is alive and well (and disgusting).  Yes, we all should be able to see that.  That isn't news. Is Bruce Levenson a racist?  Is there a lesson there? The better lesson may be that Bruce Levenson let fear (albeit racially-based) and ignorance drive his business decisions. He and the NBA lost millions of dollars in Atlanta and drove a potentially valuable brand, the Atlanta Hawks, into the ground. It appears he is most guilty of being an ignorant, horrible business man. How did he do that? Very simply, he failed in some extremely basic ways.  He forgot some…

    22 Sep 2014 | 8:02 am
    Tweet Today’s post is courtesy of guest blogger Christy King. I attended the inaugural Sports Business Journal Game Changers conference in New York last year by happenstance. I was frankly shocked that they got the conference content so right. The approach was respectful. The conference addressed the sensitive, emotional topic (for some of us) of women in leadership roles, without pandering. To use the oft-quoted women-in-sports metaphor, they did not “pink it and shrink it.” I am happy to report that this year’s second annual conference content was just as good addressing timely…

  • Florida Gators – Tennessee Vols, A Brief History

    10 Sep 2011 | 8:18 pm
    In recent memory, the third game of the season in the SEC means the first fight for the SEC East lead.  Granted, the past several years have not been kind to Derek Dooley’s UT Vols, but the Orange and White have high hopes. On the other side line, first year Gators coach Will Muschamp fully realizes the importance of this game. Both teams are currently sitting at 2-0 and neither have played anyone of appreciable ability.  That all changes this weekend as the Vols travel to The Swamp to take on their SEC East nemesis, the Florida Gators. I believe in history.  So, what does the series…

Central Michigan at Kentucky Wildcats 12:00pm  ESPNU  Sirius 220 / XM 199 Kentucky looked horrible in their opener.  How is that for objectivity?  Seriously, the Wildcats could very well struggle with Central Michigan … even with the vaunted Randy Sanders aerial attack (insert snicker here).  Defensively, UK should by all rights and means should man handle an over matched Central Michigan…

    Well, it's almost time to get back at it so... a couple thoughts. First off, I love Twitter. It's been a great addition to the hockey community the last few years, and it's opened doors for a lot of good writers, bloggers and fans to find an audience. For all the bad that you run into on there – and sure there's a lot of nonsense – there's been plenty of good. Good ideas. Good people. Good

    The Big Tip

  • True Happiness

    Emily Brown
    17 Sep 2014 | 7:36 pm
    Living in a materialistic world, it’s not uncommon to hear people joke that happiness is when you are rich. That would make sense, right? Especially if you consider that some people buy things to make themselves happy and in order to buy things you need money. So lots of money = lots of happiness. If that theory is correct, how come there are so many rich people who are unhappy? Sure, money can allow us to buy many things and even win friends and pay for surgery to make us look younger on the outside, but it doesn’t buy good health which is a key element of an optimal lifestyle.

No team in the league can win that way, and it's especially galling to coach Mike Pettine, who has seen this defensive system work in Buffalo, New York and Baltimore. "Disappointing," was Pettine's understatement for the run defense. The Browns have given up 11 runs of 10 yards or more, six of more than 20 and two of more than 30, which is a tren

The Sox got on the board right off the bat.  Mookie Betts hit a leadoff homerun against Gonzalez.  The Sox had a chance to get more in the inning, but it ended up being just the one single run.  The game stayed 1-0 for a while until the Sox grabbed another run in the 5th inning…

Though I respect Peter very much, I have to strongly disagree. As of Sunday (the day the Globe pubishes expanded stats), Betts had played 39 games with the Sox. His .283 average was by far the best of the Sox “young hopefuls”, including Xander Bogearts, Christian Vasquez, Jackie Bradley Jr and Will Middlebrooks. His OBP of .357  was one of the tops on the team. His power figures were not great, but he has shown some speed with 5 stolen…

Even though they came sandwiched between a win in the Champions League, back to back league losses against Aston Villa and West Ham United have certainly dampened the mood around Anfield. This early in the season, fatigue is no excuse, but things are already starting to get hairy with Championship side Middlesbrough visiting Merseyside tomorrow in the League Cup. Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers brought in a significant number of reinforcements over the summer to not only help bring up…
  • Police to Investigate Racist Abuse Directed at Mario Balotelli

    That’s not banter. There’s a lot of downright shameful things people say to one another — or people they don’t even know — and try to pass it off as “banter”, but following Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli’s rather lighthearted tweet regarding Manchester United’s shock loss to Leicester City yesterday, the torrent of abuse hurled at the 24-year old certainly did not qualify under any stretch of the imagination. Now, it looks like at least some of the neanderthals that thought it fit to racially abuse the Italian over an off-handed remark…
  • Brendan Rodgers on West Ham United Loss: Post-Match Interview and Disappointment in London

    Steven McMillan
    20 Sep 2014 | 11:00 pm
    Below standard? Nope — straight up ugly. A 3-1 defeat at the Boleyn Ground sent Liverpool crashing to their second Premier League defeat on the hop. The Reds defence, or lack thereof, was once again the culprit as two goals within the opening ten minutes set their up for a hard go in the Capital. Raheem Sterling pulled one back before the break and the visitors looked more likely to leave East London with something rather than nothing as a second half resurrection pinned West Ham United back, but a late counter-attack saw Morgan Amalfitano secure the points for Sam Allardyce’s…

    What the future holds Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson has only just been named the Anfield outfits new vice-captain, but already current skipper Steven Gerrard is talking about the 24-year old taking the reigns when he finally decides to call time on his playing career. The 34-year old Anfield legend is slowing approaching the end of his time with the Reds and he feels that the former Sunderland man would be the perfect replacement for him. “I would love nothing better than when I call it a day here to pass the armband over to him, not just because he’s a great player but…

    Click on Fabio for the lowlights It’s a disconcerting pattern that needs to be rectified sooner rather than later. I’d say it was two weeks in a row that we conceded an early goal to put our backs against the wall before the match even really got started, but that’s not entirely true — this week, we gave up two of them. Oddly enough, West Ham United looked a bit like the Liverpool of last season that we’d all become accustomed to as they raced out of the gate. Winston Reid headed home his first goal in just under a year after a mere 80-seconds had been played and…

    Chelsea’s season so far reflects a perfect fairy tale kick start to their English Premier League title hunt. The new signings have worked as wonder for Jose Mourinho. Experts and fans are already terming them the favorites to win the EPL this year. It has been quite a few weeks for the side. They have dominated all their matches in the domestic league so far and have looked better than ever. It is a surprise as Chelsea is performing a brand of football which is not associated with them.

    The 2014 US Open is shaping up to be a very interesting tournament.  For me the main storyline is Roger Federer and his chance for another Grand Slam title.  Roger was so close at Wimbledon, losing an amazing 5 setter to world number 1 Novak Djokovic.  Going into that 5th set many fans though this was Roger’s chance at another Grand Slam, but it wasn’t to be.  I for one though still think he has a shot in a few more and his form right now leads me to believe he has a chance at the upcoming US Open.

The results come from a survey of more than 1,100 people working in the industry, and also discovered that 44 per cent say free weights aren’t being put away properly,…

  • WWE Night of Champions Results

    John English
    23 Sep 2014 | 9:26 am
    After a stellar SummerSlam, the WWE was poised to go in some new directions. Brock Lesnar was the champion, Nikki Bella had turned on her sister, Rusev continued to roll, the Dust brothers turned heel. Unfortunately, every Raw this month was worse than the one before. Many of them felt written on the fly, and Raw, at 3 hours, is not enjoyable to watch live. I usually catch bits and pieces and watch what I missed (which is most) on DVR. Makes it much better. WWE Night of Champions was the chance to win back some of the good karma they earned from the previous PPV. Did they succeed?
  • Utah Utes Football: Travis Wilson’s Bloody Face

    Jason Hodges
    21 Sep 2014 | 5:32 am
    A hush fell over the Utah section of the Big House on Saturday. Travis Wilson, having just returned this season after suffering a potentially career ending concussion last year, took a dive to try to extend a play. That was a very poor decision on his part. While in the air a Michigan defender hit him at the knees, causing him to pummel towards his face as another defender rocks him from the side pushing him out of bounds. Wilson lands on his face, which tears off his helmet and lacerates his nose, and his feet and body bend backward over his head which appears to hyper extend his neck. The…
  • Utah vs. Michigan: Three Key Matchups

    Grant Bagby
    19 Sep 2014 | 10:26 pm
    By: Nathan Herman I don’t know about you but I am so excited for Utah to travel to the big house to play the Michigan wolverines. Michigan is 2-0 at home this season and so far has gone 5-2 against teams in the big house (last year). On the flip side Utah has played very well against teams in the pac-12 on the road. Coach Whittingham said that his players are used to playing in big places like the Coliseum, Rose Bowl or Auzten stadium and Utah has a strategy of their own. So that brings us to our first key matchup. 1. Utah’s noise, attendance, and experience vs. Michigan at home…
  • BYU Football Prediction: Cougars Seeking Revenge Against Cavaliers

    19 Sep 2014 | 5:30 pm
    If you think there is a player for BYU not seeking revenge against Virginia this weekend, you are quite simply wrong. This game represents a great number of opportunities for BYU nationally speaking, and the players and coaches know it. Last years debacle in Charlottesville is well documented, so we won’t recap it here. Suffice it to say, BYU felt like it was the better team last year despite the loss, and they are looking forward to proving it Saturday in Provo. Here’s what we think will happen this year as BYU seeks revenge against their opponent from game one in 2013. Little…

    The Utes are headed to the “Big House” for a Saturday showdown with the Michigan Wolverines. Coming off two spectacular victories this season, the Wolverines will be the Utes first true test to determine just how good they really are. Road wins have been hard to come by for the Utes and it doesn’t get any easier this weekend. Here are my 4 Keys to beating the Wolverines: 1. Turnovers: The Utes have to win the turnover battle against Michigan no questions asked. The Offense has been turnover free so far through two games hopefully they can continue that trend. The Defense…

Washington unveiled the logo and uniforms for the game at Nationals Park, which will take place on New Year's Day 2015. We were all expecting to see red vintage jerseys like the ones the team wore back in the 1970s and 1980, which would have merely been the opposite of the uniforms the team wore as the road team during the 2011 Winter Classic in Pittsburgh. But they're going an entirely different direction. The 'W'…
  • Wild week in recruiting reveals two truths about college basketball

    What Antonio Blakeney's decommitment from Louisville and the responses to Adrian Wojnarowski's takedown of Duke taught us about recruiting in college basketball. Last week was like a hurricane in Duckburg college basketball, all touched off by two mostly innocuous things: Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski publishing this column suggesting that the NBA bar its players out of international competition, and talented guard Antonio Blakeney decommitting from Louisville. And the way those stories have played out proves how silly some of the overreaction to them was in the first place. But they also…

    Jimmy Walker has been a machine from start to finish this year, and now he'll need to come through in the most intense atmosphere of his career if the USA is to have a shot at taking back the cup. Jimmy Walker knew he would be here about eight months ago. Walker spent almost the entire year on top of the FedEx Cup standings and the Ryder Cup standings after winning three PGA Tour events before mid-February. He was the hottest golfer in the world for the first few months of the season, and a lock to contend on a week-to-week basis. Walker is 35-years old and had bounced back and forth between…

    Eric Edholm
    23 Sep 2014 | 9:25 am
    Dallas Cowboys cornerback Morris Claiborne made a game-clinching interception on Sunday against the St. Louis Rams, but only after he was torched for several catches and two touchdown grabs by Rams receivers he was assigned to cover. This kind of performance for Claiborne has been the norm since the team traded up to make him the No. 6 pick in the 2012 draft. Cowboys owner and pick-maker Jerry Jones admitted on his radio show on KRLD-FM (via the Ft.

Murray gave the “Yes” campaign a boost on the eve of last Thursday’s referendum by tweeting: “Huge day for Scotland today! no campaign negativity last few days totally swayed my view on it. excited to see the outcome. lets do this!” Scottish voters ultimately voted against independence by a margin of 55 percent to 45 percent, but despite facing a backlash on…
  • Forgotten ‘giant’ Diaby set for start

    23 Sep 2014 | 2:55 am
    LONDON, September 23- Manager Arsene Wenger is confident the “giant” character of fit-again midfielder Abou Diaby can help Arsenal see off the challenge of Southampton in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday night. Diaby, 28, is one of several players likely to be drafted in by Wenger, who will make full use of the squad ahead of Saturday’s north London Premier League derby against Tottenham. The midfielder has been plagued by injury setbacks since joining Arsenal eight seasons ago, suffering a horrific broken ankle in a tackle from Sunderland defender Dan Smith in May 2006. Most…

    LONDON, September 23- Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers says he is enjoying working with Mario Balotelli. The Reds signed the Italy international striker from AC Milan last month and the former Manchester City player opened his scoring account for his new club in their 2-1 Champions League victory over Ludogorets on Tuesday. Then on Sunday he was the victim of racial abuse on Twitter after he reacted to Manchester United’s shock defeat to Leicester by tweeting: “Man Utd…LOL”. Merseyside Police have since confirmed they are looking into the matter, and Liverpool on Monday…

    Houston Rockets all-star James Harden was a topic of during the FIBA World Cup. The main discussion centered on how terrible a defender Harden was during some of those games. There would be times where Harden looked completely lost out on the court when Team USA was playing defense. Former San Antonio Spurs forward Bruce Bowen knows a thing or two about playing defense and says all the blame should not be placed on Harden. Bowen believes that we should blame the Houston Rockets for Harden’s defensive woes. Speaking of defense, do you just cringe when you watch James Harden? See, I…

    Clemson OL Ryan Norton is trying to move past Saturday night’s loss to the Florida State Seminoles but his own fan base won’t let him. Norton was involved in one of the many plays Clemson botched to let the Seminoles stay in the game. Norton had one of his snaps go over the head of Clemson QB Deshaun Watson on the goal line which made his team have to settle for a field goal. Apparently some Clemson fans were not happy with Norton and according to his head coach, Norton has received death threats.   <blockquote class=”twitter-tweet” lang=”en”> On…

    Dear Coach, Let me start by saying that I am thankful you are giving your time to coach my child’s team. Parents often don’t act very grateful, and so I want to assure you that even when we get testy, we are still glad that you are out there doing the job. Maybe some day I will be doing the coaching, but until then, I’m glad I can just watch! If you are a parent, then you will understand everything that I am about to say to you. But because you are a coach, I know that it is tough to wear the parent and coach hat at the same time. If you are not a parent, these are things you need to…

    22 Sep 2014 | 8:55 am
    Julian Edelman recently took us through the strength and conditioning program he uses to stay in peak physical condition. If you don’t know Edelman’s story by now, you should. He played QB throughout his high school and collegiate career but didn’t receive an invite to the 2009 NFL Combine. He was discovered at another player’s Pro Day when he ran the short shuttle in 3.91 seconds, .05 seconds faster than anyone at that year’s NFL Combine. He was drafted by the New England Patriots and switched positions to wide receiver. In 2013, Edelman had the best…

That means 10 foot rims versus 9 foot. It means all types of defenses are allowed — zone,…

    There are some very compelling and important matchups in week three's NFL action.  It's virtually impossible for a team to start 0 - 3 and still make the playoffs, much less win a division. So that puts teams like New Orleans, Indianapolis and Kansas City on the hot seat.

    The season starts to ramp up a bit, with a smattering of intra- and inter-conference match-ups on the schedule. Of course, the Florida State - Clemson game, for a variety of reasons, is the headline game. But there are a few others that intrigue me, including Miami at Nebraska, a surprising Virginia team heading to BYU, Oklahoma at West Virginia and of course the battle of the ACC Techs in Blacksburg.

    A divisional matchup in the NFL and a game between top 20 teams in college will have many of us switching channels to catch all of the action tonight. Of course, there's always the DVR if you're adept at avoiding scores of the game you want to watch later. I say watch the NFL on CBS, since they're less likely to show the score of the college game as frequently. I use a strip of painter's tape on the bottom of my screen to cover any scores that run across there, especially on ESPN.

When I turned it off in the third quarter, the Colts were comfortably ahead. Oops! Tuesday morning I found out the Eagles made another second half turnaround to defeat Indy 30 - 27.

  • Receiver Skills Are Many, Getting Off The Jam is One

    Brad DeHaven
    10 Aug 2014 | 1:55 am
    Playing the position of receiver requires skills such as good hand-eye coordination, great balance, explosive lower body strength, good agility, and great athleticism just to name a few. One of the most important fundamentals that will help take any receiver to another level is the ability to get off the line of scrimmage against a man defender. Here’s a link to 22 minute teaching video for receivers to get off of press coverage.  At the youth or high school level you don’t often encounter man coverage, however, learning how to get off the line of scrimmage versus a man defender is a…

  • Washington Redskins: Stepping On the Road To Winning

    Lake Lewis Jr
    22 Sep 2014 | 7:46 pm
    The Washington Redskins have stepped on the pavement and now they must walk forward. Over time, that walking could become running and, if lucky enough, could become a full blown sprint. “What are you talking about?” you may ask. Yesterday, in the 37-34 defeat to the Philadelphia Eagles, a young Washington Redskins team showed that they are firmly getting their feet set on the pavement of the road that leads to winning. Granted, they lost the game in a highly emotional dogfight of a game. The game had an old NFC East Division rivalry air about it. Each team would score and…
  • Silas Redd: Washington Redskins Mr. Irony

    Lake Lewis Jr
    18 Sep 2014 | 4:22 pm
    Ashburn, Va. – For Washington Redskins’ running back Silas Redd, the past two years have been ones filled with subplots and ironies. Redd was once the future star-in-waiting at Penn State University. Blair Thomas, who is considered by many as the greatest back in the history of Penn State Football (former Redskins running back Evan Royster is the school’s all-time leading rusher) said that: “Silas was going to be the best back ever to come out of  Happy Valley had he not transferred to Southern California.” But the young man ended up transferring to the University of…

    Redskins RB Alfred Morris needs to have a good game versus the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday Ashburn, Va. – Until the Washington Redskins can return the whupping they received at the hands of NFC-East-Division-rival Philadelphia Eagles in 2013, any game against this team is going to be must-win. In the first Monday Night Football game of the 2013 season, the Eagles surprised the NFL world with then-brand-new head coach Chip Kelly’s high-octane offense when they came to town and beat Washington 33-27 (the score was not indicative of how badly they beat the Redskins). The second time…
  • Penn State: Report Card vs. Rutgers

    17 Sep 2014 | 5:30 am
      By Quintus McDonald Last week’s report card on the Nittany Lions’ game versus the Akron Zips was consistency. This week it became evident early in the first quarter that Rutgers University was determined to make a statement to not only Penn State, but to the Big Ten Conference and college football as a whole. But PSU made a statement themselves when they beat the Scarlet Knights 13-10 and that is that they are resilient. Both teams were very well prepared. Going into the game, it was obvious that the difference maker could easily be the athletic defensive front of…
  • Despite Injuries, Redskins Put on Show vs. Jaguars

    Lake Lewis Jr
    15 Sep 2014 | 9:04 pm
    The beautiful blue skies that welcomed in the Washington Redskins’ home opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars would be a prelude for a day that saw every human emotion possible. Optimism would start the day as Redskins starting quarterback Robert Griffin, III would quickly make his mark by running to the right for a 12-yard gain from the shotgun formation.  The resulting play showed that he could still beat teams with his elusive rushing abilities. Two plays later Griffin would find wide out DeSean Jackson on a nicely thrown deep ball, showing that he could beat teams with his arm…

Buckeyes are also still considered one of the contenders for the top spot in the game despite their loss to Virginia Tech last week. The Kent state Golden Flashes on the other had, have had a pretty good run in the past but don’t play the level of competition or recruit the level of player that the Buckeyes do.

  • Go Buckeyes!

    11 Sep 2014 | 1:50 am
    Brutus in Austin, TX before a football game against the Texas Longhorns (Photo credit: Wikipedia) The Go Buckeyes commercial still cracks me up. Remember the one where this couple is introducing themselves (the woman is driving) to each other. It becomes apparent that they are actually on a blind date and the guy jumps out of the car because the woman, while introducing herself, chants the rival college football team's slogan. Not only does he jump out of a moving car he yells back GO BUCKEYES loud enough. Come to think of it why would someone go through such extremes for football. Well, if…

  • Strength Training: Well Balanced Training Is Key To Success

    High School Illustrated
    10 Sep 2014 | 12:24 pm
    Strength training is a vital part of a balanced exercise routine that includes aerobic activity and flexibility exercises. Regular aerobic exercise, such as running or using a stationary bike, makes your muscles use oxygen more efficiently and strengthens your heart and lungs. When you strength train with weights, you’re using your muscles to work against the extra pounds (this concept is called resistance). This strengthens and increases the amount of muscle mass in your body by making your muscles work harder than they’re used to. Most people who work out with weights typically…

    Many college students realize they weren’t realistic about college. Some expect to find it hard living away from home, not only in terms of missing family but also in dealing with practical stuff like washing your own clothes. If anticipated, these issues can be less stressful. Living away from home tends to be the toughest adjustment for first-year students. You’ve had a clear role within your family all of your life: the family comedian, the mediator, maybe the translator. These roles can help you feel like you belong somewhere. It can be hard adjusting to a new place and a new…

    Wild on SportsNFL Cash-In:Miami Dolphins @ Buffalo BillsLine: Pick'em, O/U: 43Overview: For the first time in years we can look at the AFC East standings and see a team other than the New England Patriots in first place. In fact, the Patriots are the only team in the division sitting there at 0-1. In perhaps the biggest surprise in week one the Miami Dolphins dominated the perennial division champs in the second half en route to a 33-20 victory. If that victory was not the upset of the week, than the distinction should belong to the Buffalo Bills who stunned many with a 23-20 overtime…

    Wild on SportsMLB 2014 Team Preview: Colorado RockiesBy Wild on Sports MLB Analyst Aaron Dorman2013 Overview: The year before, the pitching collapsed and the formerly competitive Rockies unit looked like they might need a rebuild. In 2013 they still only win 74 games but things are more promising; they might have won 4-5 if not for month-long injuries to their trio of offensive stars: Michael Cuddyer, Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki. The pitching looks much less terrible, as Joulys Chacin and Jorge de la Rosa lead a rebound performance. Still, the team has plenty of holes.Winter…

    Short and sweet. Here are 11 phrases successful athletes never say one game day (and probably not on any other day either)… Successful athletes don’t look for something to blame. They look and their performance, think about how they can do better next time, and work on it.  They don’t stay focused on the “coulda, woulda, shouldas.” No matter what, they want to do their best and help their team in any way they can, no matter what that may entail, no matter who is “supposed” to do it or not. Successful athletes LOVE a challenge and WANT the ball. They…

    I shared my thoughts on social media before. This topic came up again when I saw this headline in my Facebook Newsfeed… Georgia coach Mark Richt dropped a recruit because of his tweetsUnder that it said, “Twitter is a recruiting nightmare.” I disagree. Twitter is just a tool, just a platform through which people can communicate. HOW YOU CHOOSE TO USE IT however, can cause problems for you if you make bad choices. The bottom line is, YOUR choices affect opportunities you receive and ones you get taken away from you. Don’t blame the tool. This very same tool can HELP you…

I let her know I was happy she out works and out trains a lot of her teammates, BUT… I encouraged her to not get complacent with that, to aim higher. After all, in competition, the only people it matters to “outdo” are your opponents! Out working your teammates is great, but you’re not fighting against them in competition. I’m happy to say, she understood exactly what I was taking about The same is true for performance. It’s awesome if you’re the best on your team or in your league or even…

She played for a high school that JUST started their softball program. She wasn’t spectacular pitching wise. She did enough to keep her team in the game and stop any “big shots” from hurting her team. In short, she did a decent job as a pitcher. She was pitching outs. The only problem? Her team made error after error after error around her. Still, her demeanor, how she carried herself, how she…

  • 2014 NFL MVP Odds

    David Solar
    23 Sep 2014 | 10:00 am
    We’re now three weeks into the NFL season and, although Peyton Manning remains the favorite to repeat as MVP, there’s been a great deal of shake up. Adrian Peterson, who opened the year at +3000 to win the MVP, was removed as an option for bettors. Likewise for Ray Rice (+30,000), Robert Griffin (+3000) and Jamaal Charles (+6600). On the other hand, a few players have emerged from relative obscurity to become legitimate MVP candidates. Following a woeful 2013 campaign Matt Ryan opened the season at +5000 to win this prestigious award. However, after throwing for 965 yards and 7…

    The 2014 MLB season is coming to a close and many bettors are keeping a close eye on their preseason win total bets. For bettors who took the over on the Texas Rangers or Boston Red Sox, these last few games are likely more depressing than a Darren Aronofsky or Gaspar Noe film. Both teams entered the season with sky-high expectations, but their seasons have been effectively over for several weeks now. On the flip side teams like the Baltimore Orioles, Los Angeles Angels and (believe it or not) Houston Astros have already exceed their preseason win total at 5Dimes. While these aforementioned…
  • Betting Late Season MLB Overs at Coors Field

    David Solar
    23 Sep 2014 | 9:00 am
    For years Coors Field in Colorado has been notorious for being a hitter-friendly ballpark. These days it’s a rarity that we see the Colorado Rockies play a home game in which the total is less than 10 — an extreme anomaly considering that totals across baseball have been dropping. The main reason behind these high-scoring games and large totals is the thin air in the mile-high city. Higher altitudes lead to lower air density which has tremendous impact on both batted balls and pitched balls. Due to the reduced drag, balls travel significantly farther at Coors Field. In fact,…

The ideal range differs from sport to sport, however, for NFL betting we have frequently discussed the 80/20 rule which encourages bettors to take the most lopsided bet games on the schedule. This contrarian philosophy has been a key component of our Best Bets strategy. Since the start of the 2009-10 NFL season, our Best Bets have gone 234-196 (54.4%) for +20.5 units won.

    Surfset is the latest fitness craze to hit gym goers. Developed at a Boston gym in 2011, the workout technique is slowly becoming a global trend, as it caters and appeals to different types of fitness buffs and Surfset enthusiasts. The first group consist of extreme sports lovers who enjoy the water but hardly have the time and the means to visit the sea every so often. The second group is composed of landlubbers who may not even attempt to try surfing for real, but have enough curiosity to do the activity indoors. How did Surfset start? The idea behind Surfset was developed by Sarah Ponn, a…

    The story of extreme sports clothing brand Legit Crown is legit proof that profit can proceed out of dreams with the right products and business strategy.

    21 May 2014 | 6:35 pm
    Being the most popular sport in the entire world, it’s probably impossible for football not to have any sort of artistic offshoot. Freestyle football is certainly such. Since its emergence in the early 1900s, it has developed into an elaborate art through which people are able to express themselves. From a simple game where one performs various tricks with a football using different parts of the body, it has become a widespread sport and is currently being practiced by thousands of trained professionals the world over. For one to become a skilled football freestyler, one needs to undergo…

  • The Confidential’s ACC Standings Poll: Week 5 Updated

    22 Sep 2014 | 9:19 am
    As we enter Week 5, things are supposed to get easier, not more jumbled.  Georgia Tech was not supposed to beat Virginia Tech.  Pitt was not supposed to lose to Iowa.  And so on.  Anyway, with all precincts now reporting (that is why we are updating this) here we go: 10.Virginia Tech (2-2), 4 points.  The Hokies are reeling after the big Ohio State win.  Either the Buckeyes simply laid an egg or Virginia Tech peaked in Week 2.  Because it just does not seem like Virginia Tech is even as good as we thought they were before the Ohio State win.  Wow. 9. NC State (4-0), 18 points.  NC…

    See below for this week’s prize! Remember, the Confidential’s Fantasy Football game is structured to allow late entries.  THERE IS STILL TIME TO ENTER AND WIN!  We don’t go by total points for the whole season; rather, we just allow teams to win the week or not.  Whoever wins the most weeks, wins the overall prize.  Right now, Lenville has 2 wins, while ACaffrey and MCaffrey have 1 win.  Plenty of time for someone else to enter and win the $75.00 prize. For points-centric folks, we ran a contest for most points from Week 1 to Week 4. Congrats to Brian for winning the…
  • Is This Syracuse Football Team Hard-Nosed?

    21 Sep 2014 | 11:00 am
    There is no secret that Syracuse football head coach Scott Shafer wants the Orange to be a hard-nosed football team.  Just do a search for Shafer and hard-nosed—see what you get.  But after 3 games… does it really appear that this Syracuse football team is hard-nosed?  Unfortunately, one can make a strong argument that it is not.  And that starts at the top. The Confidential is a huge fan of Scott Shafer.  That being said, do you get the feeling that this Syracuse staff out-coaches its opponents?  The Confidential does not.

    He took the handoff and swept to his left. When he saw saw the size of the pasture to his right, he took a quick, oft-practiced step and sped for daylight. After the game he spoke about it in a polite monotone, feigning a smile only when he forgot what quarter he scored his touchdown in. The NFL has changed Reggie Bush. Before three different teams, before Kim Kardashian, before the scandal and before the high draft pick, there was USC Reggie. USC Reggie wrote “519” on his eye black and backcut against Fresno State. He seemed to smiled a lot more. When you don’t live up to…

    17 Sep 2014 | 8:29 am — nick pants (@nick_pants) September 17, 2014 Joe Nathan was good. Then he moved 1,200 miles away and he wasn’t. First the blown saves came as an aberration, then they arrived as a symptom of a dead arm. Eventually they arrived simply because they had before. At its most basic, baseball is a child monitoring device. Nine players stand in the field, in easy view. Parents have a finite number of kids to watch at one time. The rest are safe in what most of the time is a chain-link cage. The plus is crowd control. The minus is downtime for the kids. When…

When he came to training camp he was still mystery for Lions coaches to solve when they had more time. In the meantime he could cover kicks. Then Detroit cut the only reliable player it had in the secondary. Free agent signing James Ihedigbo injured his neck. Perennial backup Don Carey hurt his hamstring.  Bill Bentley’s knee exploded after three plays. The Lions had no replacements to plug in or safeties to slide over.

They sit a half game behind the Royals in the AL Central and a half game ahead of the Mariners for the final wildcard spot. I got it wrong. But I’m not alone. When the Tigers traded for David Price and the Athletics traded for half the starting pitchers in the league, a lot of…

  • Redskins: Hall & Ihenacho to IR, Minnifield promoted

    Thomas Threlkeld
    22 Sep 2014 | 2:52 pm
    The Washington Redskins confirmed today that CB DeAngelo Hall, a defensive team captain, will go to injured reserve and miss the rest of the season due to a ruptured Achilles Tendon suffered in the third quarter of last Sunday’s loss in Philadelphia. The Redskins quickly promoted CB Chase Minnifield from the 10-man practice squad to replace Hall on the roster. It remains unclear who will move into the starting role previously occupied by Hall, though, based on last Sunday’s game alone, I’d think rookie CB Bashaud Breeland has got a shot. The Skins will be facing the NY…

LaRoche is still a solid first baseman. He’s good in the field and with the stick he’s second among NL first basemen in RBI, third in HR and fourth in OBP. “I love playing…

    THE GAME TURNED WHEN… Eagles KR Chris Polk caught a Tress Way kickoff two yards deep in his own end zone and raced up the middle of the field untouched to the end zone. It was a 102-yard kickoff return that tied the game at seven and undid so much of the good work done by the Washington offense. Yes, this play was in the first quarter, so how did the game turn then? Because teams that allow 102-yard kickoff returns don’t win football games — and they don’t deserve to win football games. THE GAME WAS OVER WHEN… The Skins got the ball on the Philadelphia 41-yard…

Some may feel that the pre-season polls either hype up a team too much or do not give enough credit to the underdog. These polls are rarely correct especially when it comes to picking the number one team in the country. For example, the 2012 Associated Press pre-season poll had USC at the top of the rankings; yet, the Trojans finished the season unranked. In fact, 2004 was the last time AP pre-season #1 won the national championship (USC later had…

    Teaching Your Kids to Finish Strong –   At the University of Georgia, Coach Mark Richt introduced a concept known as “Finish the Drill.” It was the motto of our team in practices, workouts, and games. Our coach understood that good teams become championship teams based on their ability to finish strong. That attitude carried me into the NFL where I made a notable play in the 2005 divisional championship game… Continue Reading On » Stafan Fatsis on how access is playing out in the NFL’s troubles – This Slate piece by…

  • Benefits Of A Rifle Scope

    23 Sep 2014 | 8:46 am
    Rifle scopes are very handy tools for people who love to hunt. Whenever hunting season is near one can notice a sharp increase in the sale of such items. These little devices are light, detachable and easy to carry around. They are preferred by most shooters and you can only see the advantages completely once you have used a rifle scope. You can either go for a Nightforce NXS Scope or a Zeiss. But the question is which one will suit you. For this you need to know all that is required about various scope brands. For instance, if you are looking at a Nightforce NXS 2.5-10×32 mm riflescope…
  • Comparison Between Schmidt Bender Short Dot vs Elcan SpecterDR

    23 Sep 2014 | 7:24 am
    Mounting a short focal length scope like the Schmidt & Bender Zenith 1.1-4×24 is ideal. Schmidt Bender scope has a wide field of view which allows you to pick out your target quickly and shoot with both eyes open on low magnification. For outstanding shooting, consider the Schmidt Bender Zenith 1.5-6×42. Elcan’s reputation is nowhere near that of Schmidt & Bender Short Dot, it’s so cool! The price is a bit high. Schmidt & Bender simply has no alternative. Its accuracy is superb. Glass used is Zeiss. It’s always better to stay safe with S&B Short Dot;its worth…
  • The Critical Firearm Accessories For Rifle

    The simple, unpretentious sling is something that a soldier can barely manage to ignore. In the mass of essentials, the sling of a technologically advanced firearm like the Nightforce Beast Scope may appear to be insignificant. The prepper, who has to be always alert for an extended period of time and protect himself and the surroundings, only understands how important it is to carry the rifle in an utmost comfortable position. The man needs to build his tent, light up a fire and check on the available resources while wearing his blaster, perhaps a Nightforce Beast 5.5-22×56 MOAR. It is…

    Sling is one of those critical firearm accessories that are completely overlooked by the users. We are more aware of our firearms or which rifle scope to use. We make a big deal about whether to use Nightforce Beast 5.5-22×56 MOAR and how to mount it on the firearms but we conveniently overlook this cheap and easily available accessory which is so important for the shoulder-fired weapons. You can either use a Nightforce Beast Scope or a Zeiss, but sling will be a constant factor for all the firearms. Serious hunters know that how slings work without much fanfare during critical…

From the onset, Kimbers’ focus had been to maintain flawless quality products. After adding a few centrefire variations of rimfire rifles, Kimbers laid its hands on 1911 pistols.

    Borussia Dortmund will look forward to getting back into their Bundesliga game as they get ready to receive Stuttgart in a midweek league match. Both teams look equally as bad with the visitors on the last place in the table, and Dortmund on the 10th, two points short of the new Bundesliga leaders, Paderborn. Dortmund almost managed to nullify their win against Arsenal by losing against Mainz, with the same score they previously won in the Champions League. As if that wasn’t bad news enough, Henrikh Mkhitaryan picked up an injury that will keep him off the field for at least four weeks.

    Sevilla host Feyenoord for their opening Europa League match in what has been deemed a high security alert meeting. The General Anti-violence Commission has enforced the security and has advised the fans to take extra cautious measures. The visitors come to this stage of the competition after failing to qualify for the Champions League group stage, and the bookmakers favor the hosts to win outright. Sevilla won Europa League last season, but failed in their quest to secure the fourth place that would have lead them into the Champions League, and the Spaniards were left defending their title.

For a Texans team that had the #1 pick in the 2014 NFL draft, the prospect of getting to 3-0 would be a true boon. But for the Giants, dropping to 0-3 would be disastrous. Not only would they be halfway to their 0-6 start from a year ago, but all of the questions surrounding New York would arise again. Will this be Tom Coughlin’s last year? Is Eli Manning finished?

    Gang Green squares off against yet another quality NFC North opponent on Monday Night. This time Da Bears coming off their amazing comeback victory against 49ers visit the Jets. The key matchup of this game is Da Bears offensive line keeping Jay Cutler off the ground. If he can stay clean, Cutler can tear apart the Jets young and battered secondary. The Jets have to take advantage of a weak Bears run defense. They also can not settle for field goals, the Jets must score touchdowns to win this game.

Tom Coughlin’s bunch can not afford another 0-3 start to the season.   The Texans defense is a formidable group that can put pressure on the quarterback, led by the recent Powerball winner All-Pro J.J. Watt. He should have a clear path to the backfield against a patchwork offensive line.   Eli has to take advantage of the Texans secondary. If the Giants offensive line can keep Eli clean Manning can make plays in the passing game. The Giants defense have been stout against the run, and…

It will not get any easier going up against one of the more ferocious defensive lines in the league at Detroit on Monday Night Football.

    Fifteen years ago, Mike Martz had a radical notion: “Why does the run have to set up the pass?”That, according to Sports Illustrated’s Peter King, was the question the new St. Louis Rams offensive coordinator posed to his head coach, Dick Vermeil, as they prepared for the coming NFL season in June 1999. It was to be Vermeil’s third in St. Louis, and judging from the press clippings, probably his last if things didn’t change in a hurry.1 Over the previous two seasons, Vermeil had coached the Rams to 23 losses and only nine wins, with an offense that ranked 23rd out of 30 NFL teams in…

Swansea City, though, is a football Cinderella.Swansea City was founded in 1912 as Swansea Town. It hovered in the middling leagues of the English sport for much of the century. But in the 1960s, the team tumbled down the ranks, eventually requiring a financial rescue package and High Court approval just to survive. In 2001, it was sold — for a…

    The Seattle Seahawks rarely have a hard time stopping any opposing offensive player. During last year’s playoffs alone, over the course of three successive games they shut down New Orleans’ star tight end Jimmy Graham, short-circuited San Francisco’s entire passing game, and humiliated Denver’s Peyton Manning (arguably the best quarterback ever). But on Sunday, the “Legion of Boom” had no answers for San Diego Chargers tight end Antonio Gates, who caught three touchdown passes in an upset victory over the defending Super Bowl champs.Seattle shouldn’t feel too bad, though.

It is early in the season, but I completely expect the same thing from the Jets tonight as they host the Bears.

He knows the appeals process will almost uniformly cut the original suspension in half. We all looked at this streamlined and quiet process as quality. Then the worst thing that could have happened happened. The public got a video of one of the…
  • Behind the FedEx Cup Champion: Who is Billy Horschel?

    19 Sep 2014 | 10:29 am
    Rory McIlroy who? His time may have been during the summer, but there is a new man in town. It is the relatively unheard of Billy Horschel, who just walked away from the Tour Championship with $11.5 million. Not only $11.5 million, but the winner of the FedEx Cup, last week’s BMW Championship, and a newfound name. On his personal website, he states placing 2nd at the Stadion Classic on the Tour was his most memorable moment in his golfing career.1 Oh, how things have changed. Horschel was a no-name to many just a few weeks ago, but that isn’t the case anymore. Horschel,…
  • 5 Rookie Receivers With The Biggest Impact Through Two Weeks

    Kyle Crook
    18 Sep 2014 | 11:26 am
    Over the last decade, the NFL has gone from a league centered around the run game to one that revolves around airing it out. With that change of pace to the sport, the wide receiver position has become the prime position. The guys that we have seen playing there over the years have been the most athletic guys on the field, making electric plays. Guys like Calvin Johnson, Dez Bryant and AJ Green have revolutionized the game. With the pass game becoming so popular, teams have used the short and intermediate pass game to set up the long throws. This system has also given the more diminutive…
  • Why the Bills Are 2-0 and the Saints Are 0-2 (and If It Even Really Matters)

    Cale Finta
    17 Sep 2014 | 12:05 pm
    It is more likely that a team in the NFL will go from worst to first and vice versa in the span of one season than any other major sport. But even with such parity, the early results of the 2014 regular season are shocking. Among the most surprising developments is the early fall of the New Orleans Saints, who beat the Eagles in the playoffs last year to make it to the divisional round, and the sole lead of the AFC East by the Buffalo Bills, who finished in last place in their division last season. What changed in the seventh months of the offseason that would result in such a turnaround? And…

  • Buffalo Sabres Coach Is Something Special

    Douglas Dicenzo
    14 Sep 2014 | 3:00 pm
    Ted Nolan To bring back a coach is special. Take for example when Ted Nolan was coach of the New York Islanders and he asked the team owner to bring back Al Arbour to coach one more game because statistically Coach Arbour was at 1499 games. It was set up for Al Arbour to come back behind the bench with Coach Nolan. Arbour was to be honored for helping architect four in a row Stanley Cup winning Islander teams and to reach the 1500 games coached plateau.No, the Sabres have not won any cups. They came close twice, but both those teams did not quite have enough to make it over the top. In the…

Preseason was long and had us not feeling great about our team, but we all knew that preseason meant squat and now is go time! The Bears kick off to us and just like preseason; Coach Marrone has C.J. Spiller back to receive the kick. I have stated my feelings on this being absolutely ridiculous and here we go again in our opener.  The ball goes out of bounds in the end zone. It was time to start our offensive season at the twenty.

They have achieved 85 wins for the second season in a row, and now there are some rumors that General Manager Dayton Moore has shown enough during his tenure as the Kansas City General Manager to be considered a candidate in the Atlanta search for a new GM.

I’d like to point out a few key words in said rant: Incompetence, accountability, and stupidity. Here is the definition for the word incompetence: Inability to do something successfully; ineptitude. In 2006, Dayton Moore took to the presses and said that he would have a championship in Kansas City in ten years. It is…

    “The Hunt for Blue October” is alive and well this September. Last week, the team was on the brink of disaster, and fans, including myself, were slowly starting to give up on our beloved Royals. After taking two out of three from the Chicago White Sox, the people have slowly been sucked back in, and have regained the slightest bit of hope. After dropping the longest game in Royals history in the later innings of yesterday’s game, Chicago got out to an early 1-0 lead when Yordano Ventura loaded the bases with no outs in the third inning. One run was only the Sox could muster…

    8 Aug 2014 | 1:56 am
    Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena may seem like a strange venue for a collosal ice hockey grudge match. And it was fairly safe to say that no-one in the crowd was expecting Gretzky, Federov or Lemieux to be turning out either. In fact a Kane, Quick or Boychuck would have sufficed; instead we got to experience the talents of Zenon Konopka, Emerson Etem, Tyler Bunz and Andrew Gordon (a late replacement for the world renown Kyle Quincey). When I heard the line-ups for the two teams those immortal lines from Major League were ringing through my ears – “Not bad for a couple of…

  • Danny Welbeck vs Radamel Falcao

    12 Sep 2014 | 1:11 am
    By selling Danny Welbeck to direct rival, Arsenal, Louis Van Gaal has certainly put his reputation on the line. Both Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wengner seem to think that the England striker is a quality player. Sir Alex even choose Welbeck ahead of Wayne Rooney during their Champion League match against Real Madrid a couple of years ago. Van Gaal however, has a different opinion about Welbeck. The Dutchman decided that Welbeck is not good enough for United and happy to let him go for just £16 million. Many fans don’t think it a wise idea. Just £16 million to a direct rival?

    So the Malaysian Hockey Confederation (MHC) has finally pushed the panic button and decided to replace ‘under fire‘ head coach, K. Dharmaraj with Project 2016 coach, A. Arulselvaraj, albeit the appointment is just an interim measure. The face-saving move with Dharmaraj as a “scapegoat” to me is an act of cowardice, designed to appease the fans after a disastrous World Cup campaign and shameful performances at the recent Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. It would have been better for the MHC to stick by their man for at least another year after they decided to give…

Folks close to the program have told me that if he doesn’t go 2-1 against Notre Dame, MSU and Ohio State, or win 10 regular season games, he will likely lose his job after the season ends, forcing Michigan to search for a new coach for the second time in four years.
