    The first-ever football sideline reporter was sentenced to two to four years in a Pennsylvania state prison Wednesday. Don Tollefson—who was hired by ABC Sports in 1974 along with Jim Lampley after a nationwide talent search for someone to "represent the face and voice of the American college student"—was found guilty in January of swindling $340,000 from about 200 people who bought nonexistent sports and travel packages from him. The proceeds from the packages were supposed to help fund a variety of charities, but instead prosecutors contended that they supported Tollefson's drug…

    26 Mar 2015 | 11:09 pm
    T.J. McConnell shook off his terrible first half and a Xavier defender with equal poise, sliding around a screen and finding an open 3-pointer. The senior's shot split the net in the waning minutes and he put Arizona on its way back to the brink of the Final Four. ''He has the ability to take the big shot and make it,'' coach Sean Miller said. ''That's one of the reasons we're here today.'' McConnell scored 13 of his 17 points in the second half, freshman Stanley Johnson added 12 and second-seeded Arizona made a dominant late rally for a 68-60 victory over sixth-seeded Xavier in the West…

    The fiancee of former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez is due to be called to testify by prosecutors in his murder trial, two people with knowledge of the matter told The Associated Press. Shayanna Jenkins, 25, was granted immunity by the court in February, which means she can be compelled to testify or face time behind bars. There had been a question about whether prosecutors would call Jenkins, who has been in a relationship with Hernandez, 25, since high school and is the mother of his 2-year-old daughter. The two people who spoke to the AP on Thursday said Jenkins would be…

    Wisconsin looked like a beaten team for much of the game. It looked like a repeat of the Big Ten Conference title game, when the Badgers were left for road kill against Michigan State before coming back to win in overtime. The top-seeded Badgers again proved their grit, rallying in the final 10 minutes to hold off North Carolina 79-72 Thursday night and advance to the final eight of the NCAA Tournament. Sam Dekker had a career-high 23 points and 10 rebounds, Kaminsky added 19 and Nigel Hayes 12 to send Wisconsin (34-3) into the West Regional final Saturday against No. 2 seed Arizona, which…

Demetrius Jackson scored 20 points and third-seeded Notre Dame blitzed the Shockers in the second half of a surprisingly easy 81-70 victory Thursday night in the Midwest Regional semifinal to advance to the Elite Eight for the first time in 36 years. The Irish (32-5) shot 75 percent (18 of 24) over the final 20 minutes, overwhelming the seventh-seeded Shockers (30-5) with a barrage of 3-pointers, expert cuts to the basket and enough fancy passing to fill an And-One mixtape.

    26 Mar 2015 | 11:44 pm
    Aside from the Giants' sloppy defense, spotty offense and lack of a definitive batting order, manager Bruce Bochy didn't have a care in the world Thursday night. Bochy never criticizes individual players publicly. But he revealed several concerns in his remarks following the Giants' 6-4 Cactus League loss to the A's.

    I purposely budgeted my time yesterday to be in front of the TV at 5:00PM EST to watch Keith Olbermann’s return to the air after his 4-day suspension from ESPN. I was curious to see how he would “handle” the cause for his suspension and – truth be told – there was a part of me that wondered if watching the first day back might be the same as watching a self-immolation. As everyone here knows by now, I am not a fan of Keith Olbermann’s politics and more specifically I am not a fan of his views on Penn State University which caused the suspension, but I do believe that he is an…

Rest in peace, Earl Lloyd… I got an e-mail this morning from #1 son saying: “Saw this headline on CNN.com today: “Hoyer calls McCarthy a ‘coward’ “I had to think – what the Hell could have happened that Brian Hoyer would call Mike McCarthy a coward in the middle of free agent singing when Hoyer needs a job and the…

I have been a fan of his in that dimension for more than 20 years now. Notwithstanding my fandom, I have documented here the fact that he…

  • 49ers: The Curse of Jim Harbaugh?

    Mike Presley
    20 Mar 2015 | 6:00 am
    The San Francisco 49ers were a goal line stand away from winning their sixth Super Bowl back in 2012. Jim Harbaugh took the team to the Super Bowl in only his second season as Head Coach. Now in 2015 the 49ers are looking at rebuilding.  While you can look at the positives of signing Torrey Smith to replace Michael Crabtree, the negatives are just through the roof. It seems as if Jed York was blessed with the gift of Jim Harbaugh, and when he didn’t want it, he fired him. I’m sorry, I meant “mutually parted ways” with Harbaugh. Thus the Curse of Jim Harbaugh was born.

    It seems like it was yesterday the New England Patriots won the Super Bowl, yet here we are days away from Free Agency. NFL Free Agency, one of the big reasons why the NFL has so much parity. Even with the cap increase of ten million from last season, teams are struggling to get under the cap by the new league year. Each year players are let go and new players are signed, as teams look to fill a void before the start of the draft. Though, buyer beware as a player may not be who you think your getting. You see it every year where teams over pay to lure free agents, but also they just simply…

    3 Mar 2015 | 4:29 pm
    The Philadelphia Eagles traded All-Pro running back LeSean McCoy for Buffalo Bills linebacker Kiko Alonso. Without a doubt a trade that came out of nowhere. Rex Ryan is certainly trying to make a splash in his first offseason as Bills head coach and without a first-round draft pick in this year’s draft, Ryan is doing whatever he can to elevate his offense. In his five season as a running back C.J Spiller has only rushed for over a thousand yards once and has never started a full season. He has shown signs of being an All-Pro but last season he only played in a total of nine games due to…

    The Seattle Seahawks are once again going to play in the Super Bowl this Sunday and they will once again be playing a team with a legendary quarterback from this generation in Tom Brady and his New England Patriots. Last Super Bowl the Seahawks rattled Denver Bronco’s quarterback Peyton Manning on their way to winning the Lombardi Trophy on a 43-8 route. Since the start of the 21st century the biggest debate has been who is a better quarterback Peyton Manning or Tom Brady. Brady has the rings but Manning has the MVP’s. Peyton dominates in the regular season but chokes in the playoffs.

    Kentucky and West Virginia’s paths are divergent in the Sweet Sixteen, with the Wildcats rolling in the first half. It does not look like Kentucky will be leaving 36-1 as Daxter Miles predicted. Ashley Judd is there, of course, and fired up to make the call on an out-of-bounds play. She may want to save some of that energy for the next game. The only other highlight of the first half was the referee tripping over West Virginia players waiting to check in, but still making the offensive foul call.

The Badgers will advance to the Elite 8 for the second year in a row, and Saturday, they’ll play Arizona, unless the Wildcats find a way to lose to Xavier. Dekker, a talented but inconsistent player who could be a lottery pick in the June draft, was at his attacking best all night, torching JP Tokoto or Justin Jackson or whoever tried to guard him.

    26 Mar 2015 | 4:52 pm
    New England Patriots LB Dont'a Hightower (shoulder) will miss six to seven months after undergoing surgery on a torn right labrum. Footballguys View: Hightower's availability for the beginning of the regular season could now be in jeopardy. We could see the Patriots decide to put him on the PUP list to begin the season. If that happens, Hightower would be forced to miss the first six weeks of the regular season. After that time, the Patriots would have three weeks to decide whether or not to activate Hightower or put him on season-ending Injured Reserve.

They have met with Georgia RB Todd Gurley, and he's an option for them in the first round of the 2015 NFL draft. Gurley reminds us of Marshawn Lynch, and he should be a star in the NFL. He would…

    THE PRICE IS FINALLY RIGHT. IT'S TIME TO SPONSOR A BOWL GAME. The Independence Bowl remains the greatest of our December 27th bowls, and yet somehow does not have a sponsor on this, March 26th of 2015.  This is a minor travesty because the Independence Bowl has brought us the joy of playing football in a Louisiana snowstorm, Nick Saban's greatest bowl victory ever, and the legendary revelation of the Inside Trout, Shreveport's deadliest native fish. It's brought us greatness, and deserves it in return. A clarification: we're not saying the Independence Bowl deserves money,…

    IT HAPPENS AND YOU CAN LEARN FROM IT Sometimes, a team needs a maypole, a rallying point, a symbol of both their current situation and the attitude necessary to get out of that situation. Sometimes, more than anything else, a team needs an exemplar, a totem, a person who represents the right words, actions, and gestures for that crucial moment in their history. A Joan of Arc for the battle; a Liberté leading the people over the barricade; an Ernest leading you to camp. In an era where Florida football has put on white pants and soiled itself, running back Adam Lane continues to step up…

    WE'RE HERE TO SAVE THE COLLEGE GAME With the NCAA men's basketball tournament swinging into gear this past weekend, there's been a great deal of talk about the state of the college game, specifically the deleterious effects of the "one-and-done" system. Some say that players should be allowed to go directly to the NBA, arguing that the current age limit is an artificial barrier to competition, reducing risk to the owners at the cost of players' financial security (these people are correct). Others say that the age limit should be raised, preventing teams like Kentucky from loading up on…

It’s a handy tool work-wise, but I love looking through each teams’ organizational charts to find names of guys I either knew or crossed paths with, or just liked as player’s. Every year is different, and while the list changes ever year it’s also getting shorter too, which is kind of sad. Just means I’m getting old, too. A few to chew on; Doug Bochtler, Dbacks, pitching coach for Low A team in South Bend. From the AFL in ‘94, fun guy.

    The biggest US fantasy sports winnings of all time   Fantasy sports began around 1980 inside a New York restaurant, where a group of people created the Rotisserie League Baseball. In the game, participants drafted real players from the major league and followed them throughout the season, earning points based on the performance of those players on the field.   With the advent of the internet, fantasy sports became a nationwide sensation. Although fantasy football has more participants than fantasy baseball these days, both fantasy versions of these sports offer a life-changing cash…

    18 Mar 2015 | 5:13 am
    Whether you are a seasoned fantasy player or just a first timer, you can find it helpful to look at the odds on a given team coming into the season. Since a team’s odds offer a rough estimate of how good or bad they will perform in the coming season, you can get an idea of what the fantasy outlook is for any given team’s players. Let’s use the Houston Astros as an example.   At this same time last year, the Astros had astronomical odds of +8,000 to win the AL West. But after a relatively “successful” season in which they finished with a 70-92 record—the first non-100 loss…

    It's spring, which means the Human-Powered Daddy Shuttle (a.k.a. the "Smugness Flotilla"--or, according to the company that sells it, a "Surly Big Dummy") is running more frequently now:I believe I took delivery of this bicycle sometime around March or April of 2010, which makes the bike five (5) years old this spring.  This is well beyond what most of the cycling media considers an appropriate period for a "long-term review."  In fact, I don't even think the cycling media considers it acceptable to own a bicycle for five years.  For the rest of us, however, five years means a…

The Blue Jackets have had a disappointing season and have fallen well short of expectations as the perennial preseason playoff pick sits seventh in the wild card standings and are 13 points out of a playoff spot with nine games remaining. Columbus though has started to pick up some momentum down the stretch as they are winners of four games in a row and have gone 8-2 in their last 10 overall as they are showing signs of the…

    Though much off the talk since Ohio State captured the national title has centered on what is shaping up to be a three-way battle for the starting quarterback gig, the offense is also sporting proven depth at the H-back spot in Dontre Wilson and Jalin Marshall. And while whoever wins the starting nod at the position won't create major waves nationally, there's no question the battle for reps – though it won't fully begin until fall due to Wilson just recently having pins removed from his surgically repaired foot – will be fierce based on the production seen from both thus far into…
  • In Place of Departed Leader Curtis Grant, Raekwon McMillan Embraces the Expectations Ohio State has for him

    Eric Seger
    26 Mar 2015 | 9:45 am
    Initially, Raekwon McMillan wasn't sure if he would be able to handle his new role at Ohio State. That's not to say he wasn't physically ready by any means, with all the recruiting laurels and expectations that come with being a five-star recruit from the south. The praise and hype surrounding a big-time recruit typically translates to a starting spot on the field from Day One, but McMillan found himself in a dogfight with senior Curtis Grant — a guy doing everything in his power to keep his spot in the lineup. The two were friends and both saw time, but by season's end, Grant's on-field…

    26 Mar 2015 | 9:54 pm
    Thinking out loud, that is what we bloggers are doing when we are writing our posts. Instead of verbalizing our thoughts, we write them out in words. I heard a great song while watching the Grammy Awards last month; it was a song by Ed Sheeran and John Mayer and John Legend backed him up on the guitar and piano. Being decidedly old school in my music tastes, I do not listen to a lot of today’s music. I have to admit, I was immediately smitten by this song. It is easily one of the best love songs that I have ever heard. I guess modern music is not the vast wasteland that many critics believe…

Worked all day Saturday, slept halfway through Sunday, and got up and ready for work by 7 AM Monday… and now all of a sudden it’s freaking Thursday night. This new gig is really a sweet deal, but right now it is kicking my ass.

In that post, I discussed the importance of identifying, assessing, enhancing, establishing and/or regaining your fitness identity.When I talk to many people about their recreational sports participation for any length of time, it is clear that in addition to their pursuit of enjoyment and perhaps momentarily reliving past glory, a majority of us experience moderate to considerable angst, frustration, disappointment, a sense of failure, self-criticism, and performance anxiety.

    2 Feb 2015 | 2:11 pm
    Super Bowl XLIX provided so much drama and excitement.  Thank you New England and Seattle.  It was also memorable and valuable for what we can learn from it.  Despite the outcome and the fact that the Super Bowl trophy belongs to the New England Patriots, it can be said that both teams played like champions. Let's look at the anatomy of championship mindset and what mental conditioning is necessary to compete for a Super Bowl. This Super Bowl was a lesson in putting yourself in the best possible position to win.  Both teams did so much to make themselves champions.

    From children to adults, no fan is immune to the thrill of getting an autograph from their favourite sportsperson. In fact, it’s a common sight to see fans beseeching cricketers fielding on the boundary for a quick autograph.

However, this link between cricketers and fans is set to be severed, if the BCCI has its way. “We have asked cricketers not to give autographs while the match is on, during the IPL, Champions League T20 and all other…

    25 Mar 2015 | 10:21 pm
    Tom Coughlin is the NFL equivalent of that older neighbor of yours who lives down the street. He wears suspenders, waves when you drive by and is quick to complain about the Miller boy and his "hippy-dippy" friends. He's constantly fiddling in the garage, and if you come close enough he'll push 15 oil cans out of the way just to show you his collection of old bayonets. Coughlin is a good, old-fashioned kind of guy, and according to a recent report, he'll be damned if he takes any guff off that n

    Sean Payton shot down rumors that the New Orleans Saints might consider trading quarterback Drew Brees in an interview with FOX Sports' Chris Myers. Payton echoed the sentiments that Saints general manager Mickey Loomis expressed Monday during the NFL owners meetings when Payton was asked about how teams have to decide when it’s the right time to move on from an aging quarterback. “It’s not that time.

      March 28, 2015 would make it 20 years since Michael Jordan made his return from early retirement to Madison Square Garden to play the New York Knicks wearing the number “45”. Five games into his return from his retirement many people were unsure of whether MJ could return as the same dominant player he was known as in the NBA during his entire career. Jordan quickly silenced those doubters by dropping 55 on the Knicks in what became known by many as the “Double Nickel” game.

  • Eduardo Rodriguez – A Man to Watch

    Michael Passanisi
    20 Mar 2015 | 8:09 am
    A few weeks ago, the Red Sox rotation appeared set. However, cracks are beginning to show. In a 14-5 loss on March 15, projected starters Justin Masterson and Wade Miley were hit hard. Masterson was touched for 7 hits and 6 runs in 3 2/3, while Miley surrendered 6 hits and 4 runs in 4 innings. Both Masterson and Miley have 6-plus ERA’s this spring. Joe Kelly’s is over 11 and he has a sore arm. Even with Clay Buchholz and Rick Porcello having good springs, the feeling is that the Sox may have “a bunch of 3rd and 4th starters”. I don’t think Cole Hamels in coming.
  • Garin Cecchini – Let’s Keep Him for Now

    Michael Passanisi
    14 Mar 2015 | 3:04 pm
    Last fall, Red Sox prospect Garin Cecchini had reason to be optimistic. Third base had been an inconsistent positon for the team in 2014, with Will Middlebrooks, Xander Bogearts, and Brock Holt playing there at times. But there was really no regular third-sacker. A Louisiana native, Cecchini comes from a baseball family. His brother Gavin is a promising shortstop in the Mets organization. His father is a long time high school baseball coach. The 23-year-old lefty hitter, was signed out of high school in the 2010 draft. There has never been any doubt about his hitting potential. Making stops…

    Every year it seems, a young player in Red Sox spring training excites fans and writers. Two years ago it was Jackie Bradley Jr. Last year it was Xander Bogearts. This year-Mookie Betts. But 5 seasons ago, there was a 20-year-old who possibly was better than all of them. Ryan Kalish, born in 1968, had some local roots. Both of his parents came from Dorchester. He was born in California and grew up in Shrewsbury, NJ. From junior high on, he attracted attention. As a freshman, he struck out 10 in his first varsity start. The following year, he threw a no-hitter while batting .507 and stealing…

    (Photo by Jared Wickerham/Getty Images) In is Sunday Baseball column, Nick Cafardo wrote: “Don’t buy that Shane Victorino will be Boston’s right fielder on Opening Day. If he’s healthy, he will draw interest and be traded.” Cafardo went on to say that John Farrell’s statement that Victorino will start in right was done mostly to increase his trade value. Before we deal the Flyin Hawaiian, however, let’s take a step back. First of all, we must remember how valuable Victorino was in 2013. Playing in 122 games, he showed speed, power, and good defense.

    22 Feb 2015 | 7:37 pm
    As the Sox begin spring training, a lot of eyes will be on their pitching staff. The starting group lacks an ace, and the bullpen is rather unsettled, with closer Koji Uehara coming off an injury-plagued year. Those same eyes will be on pitching coach Juan Nieves, who enters his third season on the job. The first two have featured big highs (a Championship in 2013) and big lows ( a last place finish in ’14 marked by the departure of 4 of the 5 starters from the previous season). Nieves has also known highs and lows in his own major league career. A native of Puerto Rico, he did not…

She’s been flawless in her fighting career, only having one fight go past the first round. She’s finished seven of her eleven opponents in under a minute.

    Right now, the Golden State Warriors are the best team in a loaded Western Conference. They’re looking for their 1st NBA championship since 1975, and the game has certainly changed in the last 40 years. Even since the 1990s when the Chicago Bulls dominated with Michael Jordan, the game is much more perimeter oriented. In a way, Golden State is the standard barer for this new style of play.   The three-point shot was ushered into the NBA in the 1970s, but it really has only taken off in the last 20 years or so. These days, it seems like every team is loaded with players who can shoot…

Great coaches, from Little League to the Major League’s, come to each practice with a plan. They’re not just winging it. They know what they’re going to do, so practice time becomes simply an implementation of a plan. Not only do players learn more about the game this way, but it makes it so much easier for baseball coaches. With a plan in hand, coaches can free their minds to live in the moment and teach.

But, that isn’t the point. The Utes need to find a way to win against the Blue Devils. To do that, I looked at the three close battles Duke lost – twice to Notre Dame and once to NC State. I don’t have the tape, but there are some tendencies the Utes should look to exploit. (I am not just referring to scoring more points.) Jahlil Okafor – He is expected to be a big part of this…

However, that didn’t happen. Without Hayward on the court, the Jazz still remain one of the worst teams in the NBA. That’s not to say there hasn’t been progress. And it wasn’t just Hayward the Jazz missed last night. Alec Burks is still gone, and Rodney Hood had to leave the game early with health issues. Those are three guys who can get their own…

    The Kentucky Wildcats improved to 36-0 and are on to the Sweet 16. The NCAA Tournament has finally arrived with a 68-team field headlined by bracket's heaviest favorite in recent memory, No. 1 overall seed Kentucky. The Wildcats head into the tournament at 34-0 after running through the regular season unblemished and capturing the title of the SEC Tournament with one blowout victory after another.

    Arizona and Wisconsin both faced stiff challenges Thursday night, but in the end, we're all getting the Elite Eight rematch we hoped we'd see. On a first night of the Sweet 16 where the other three higher seeds had already advanced by an average of 19 points, Arizona decided to make things a little more entertaining. The second-seeded Wildcats trailed for a majority of the second half before making enough plays down the stretch to escape with a 68-60 win. Arizona's typical balanced scoring attack was on full display, as three players scored in double figures, but none scored more than T.J.

The No. 1 Kentucky Wildcats are now 37-0 after Thursday night's 78-39 thrashing over the fifth seed in the Midwest Region, a helpless, poor pile of laundry that once was a talented West Virginia Mountaineers team.

    Teaching your quarterbacks techniques for ball security is something that you want to include in your daily practice plan. In today’s video blog post, we are demonstrating an excellent ball security drill called the “Hold The Runner” drill. This drill does 2 things: it emphasize good forward body lean and protection of the football and it also allows for a quarterback to understand that defensive players are going to try to strip or rip or knock the ball away from him as he is running it. So the quarterback has to make sure that there is always ball security. VIDEO TUTORIAL: “Hold…

    LOS ANGELES — They admit they've replayed last year's Elite Eight loss in their minds over and over. They admit that setback fueled them during offseason workouts. They admit they crowded around the TV in their locker room before their game to see who their potential Elite Eight opponent would be. There's only one thing Arizona players would not concede Thursday night after their come-from-behind 68-60 victory over Xavier in the Sweet 16: That they're happy the last obstacle between them and the Final Four is a rematch with the Wisconsin team that ousted them last March.

The Wildcats were only four wins away from a perfect 40-0 season and second national championship in three seasons. But the added motivation came just the same.  [DraftKings: Free $25,000 March Madness Fantasy Basketball Contest] The most significant blow to the beehive came from West Virginia freshman Daxter Miles Jr., who foolishly predicted Kentucky would be 36-1 after facing the Mountaineers.

    With my bracket in ruins, primarily because of the East Region where I have no chance to get additional points, I can now be totally objective when looking at the remaining games. Although it shouldn't be, the ACC getting five teams into the Sweet Sixteen has surprised some people. To me, I thought the Big 12 was really over-seeded in this tournament, so it is very surprising that they couldn't get more than two teams through to this point. With all of the upsets so far, it's a little hard to believe that there isn't more than the single double digit seed left, UCLA at 11 in the South Region.

As I researched the topic, I noticed almost every list of great novels about sports included a wide array of differing titles. Sure, "Friday Night Lights" and "Fever Pitch" seemed to be consensus favorites, but it was obvious that the perspective of the people doing the rating skewed the choices in a particular direction.

  • How To Prepare A Race Plan

    Chris
    24 Mar 2015 | 1:49 am
    You wouldn’t go into an exam without preparation and a swimming meet should be no different. Many swimmers neglect to implement a clear race strategy prior to meets and this can be the difference between success and failure. The battle for the podium no longer starts in the pool, but weeks beforehand when a race plan is formulated. This will ensure when the big day comes you have every possible advantage over your opponents. So what elements should be included in your race plan? My coach and I always include the following: Food and nutrition - It’s vital to find the right dietary…

    This swimsuit definitely dispels any myths that function and fashion cannot be combined.  The Speedo Splashshine One Piece is part of the Ladies Speedo Sculpture range which seems to have been pigeonholed to serve ladies-that-lunch or spa weekenders.  After wearing this swimming costume for a week, swimming a mile a day, I beg to differ. Without a doubt, this well styled swimsuit certainly fits the bill for a girl’s weekend away, thanks to its beautiful ruching detail on the front, a cross-over gathered bust, tummy control and bust support.  I have always steered clear of the U back…

Marathons are a passion of mine so it only makes sense that I love the mini version of it that Nashville has for the kids, The Nashville Kids Rock Marathon. It is Sunday April 26, 2015.

    Stephanie
    26 Feb 2015 | 10:31 pm
    Throughout my years of running I have seen so many little mistakes new runners make, that unfortunately derail them from moving forward in their training plan. It can be very deflating to have all of the right intentions and then lose steam. So I thought I would share with you the mistakes I see, and some that I have made myself. 1. Wearing the wrong shoes. There is no question that shoes matter. Wearing the wrong fit or even size of a shoe can cause pain and injury. It is worth the investment to find the right shoe for you. 2. Comparing Yourself to Others. One of the things I love about…

We parked too far away and got out of the car too early, two mistakes I didn’t make again. This year I also came prepared in my Feetures! merino wool socks so my feet wouldn’t feel like little pads of ice like they did last year. This is a fairly hilly 9.3 miles and I knew it would be a good training run for me in the midst of my training for the Nashville Full Marathon.

    The Washington Wizards are in a precarious situation as the NBA regular season comes down to the final three weeks. They can either limp into the NBA Playoffs and get bounced in the opening round (which seems to be the course in which this ship is steering) or, they can salvage a season that had so much hope and expectations. One thing is clear however… this is not the team that made a huge dent in last year’s Eastern Conference Playoffs. This 2014-2015 team, save for the steady emergence of point guard John Wall as one of the NBA’s elite players, has not lived up to the…

  • Report Card 2015: Spike Albrecht

    Alejandro Zúñiga
    26 Mar 2015 | 8:03 am
    During Big Ten Media Day in October, Spike Albrecht seemed content with being Michigan’s most experienced backup. But his role changed quickly, as injuries to Caris LeVert and Derrick Walton made the junior the team’s only healthy veteran in the backcourt. Albrecht made 18 starts and played in 31 games, averaging 7.5 points and 3.9 assists. And it was his distribution that quickly became his biggest forte. He had a season-high nine assists against Syracuse in December — including a behind-the-back dish for a Ricky Doyle dunk — and polished off the evening with a go-ahead three-pointer…
  • Video: Jon Teske Junior Season Scouting Highlights

    Dylan Burkhardt
    25 Mar 2015 | 7:45 am
    We compiled footage of class of 2016 Michigan commitment Jon Teske’s junior season at Medina and edited it into a five minute scouting video to show off some of his strengths and weaknesses before AAU play begins. Strengths Teske is a legitimate 7-footer and that size and length translates into shot blocking ability. He’s a good defender around the rim and moves well from side to side to serve as a help defender. Teske doesn’t have a vast arsenal of post moves, but he’s very capable of executing his set of base moves. He routinely catches the ball on the block and makes a quick…

    Class of 2015 big man Mike Edwards averaged just four points per game as junior at John Glenn, but a summer of hard work, a new coach and improved play on the court has yielded him plenty of options at the next level as his senior season draws to a close. He’s emerged under new John Glenn coach Rod Watts and is now averaging 22 points and 12 rebounds per game. Edwards has picked up high major offers from Georgia, Kansas State and Nebraska in the last month and has started to hear in earnest from John Beilein, Bacari Alexander and the Michigan coaching staff. “I want to say around…

    As expected, five-star wing Jaylen Brown made his official visit to Ann Arbor last week. Brown arrived on campus on Wednesday afternoon for his fifth and final official visit. Brown has also taken official visits to Kentucky, Kansas and UCLA and North Carolina. Georgia and Georgia Tech also remain in the equation as the home state schools. Michigan hasn’t been recruiting Brown as long as others, but had its full opportunity to make a pitch to Brown, who was originally attracted to Michigan due to a number of family connections to the state and the school. Brown followed the trip to…

    ESPN’s Jeff Goodman is reporting that Michigan assistant coach Jeff Meyer is in the mix for Liberty University’s head coaching position. The coaching job search and rumors site HoopDirt also hinted that Meyer would interview at Liberty. Meyer coached Liberty from 1981 through 1997, guiding the Flames from NAIA to Division I and earning a trip to the NCAA tournament in 1994. He left Liberty under pressure from a new administration to reach a higher level, one that the Flames haven’t quite met since. Former Liberty coach, Dale Layer, was fired on March 5th and had an…

    With March Madness in full swing, watching the incredible amount of games coming down to the final play is a lot of fun. College basketball places a big emphasis on coaches and how involved they are throughout the whole game…especially at the end. The coach draws up plays, encourages the team, and points out what needs to be done in order to win. After the coach gives the plan, the players are supposed to go out and execute it. However, too often we see players run onto the floor and do their own thing – instead of complete the plays called by their coach. When it comes to life…

    29 Dec 2014 | 4:47 pm
    The NBA is always considering ways to squeeze more action into a shorter game for its fans. Unfortunately, time is a zero-sum proposition, and if the league is serious about fitting games in under two hours then it appears either … Continue reading →

    Ok, my plan was to go sub 5 hours. Plain and simple. On the one hand I was not preparing directly for that race as my main event is Ironman New Zealand, but on the other hand - I did 5:17 last year on the same course and I wanted to see what progress I have made. It took me 5 minutes and 36 seconds longer than expected. Still, considering the race conditions - I’m happy with that result.

    While most folks are concentrating on March Madness, the Syracuse Orange faithful have turned to mens lacrosse–where, other than perhaps Johns Hopkins–nobody has more tradition.  But recent years have been fairly lean for the Orange.  2015, however, is off to a great start.  So a lot of eyes were on yesterday’s matchup between the Orange and the two-time reigning champion Duke Blue Devils.  And Syracuse dominated, winning 19-7 over #4 Duke in the Carrier Dome. Lacrosse is a sport known for scoring runs.  But it was all Syracuse early, leading up to a rather shocking…

    On February 6, the Red Wings were coming off a 3-0 win over the Avalanche the previous night. They were 8-2-0 in their last 10 games and sat second in the Atlantic Division, two points behind the NHL-leading Lightning with two games in hand. In the month and a half that followed, Detroit posted a barely playoff-worthy 5-3-2 record in its next 10 games then went 4-6-0 in the 10 after that. They now sit stuck at third in the Atlantic Division with 89 points, eight behind second-place Tampa Bay and 10 behind NHL leading Montreal. With 11 games remaining the Red Wings’ only motivation is…

    When you think Mexican beer, you probably think Corona, Modelo, Pacifico, and mass-market lagers of that nature. What you almost certainly do not think of are IPAs, Imperial Reds, and Belgian-style Wits and Saisons. Well, breweries such as Insurgente are looking to change that, one tap takeover at a time. Hailing from the infamous city of Tijuana, Mexico, Insurgente has been brewing American and European-influenced craft beer since 2010. They broke into the American market in January 2015 with a San Diego run and are looking to expand to Los Angeles by April, with further expansion planned.

He played center and linebacker and earned two of his three career Pro Bowl appearances with Washington. However, the vast majority of Skins fans will remember Torgeson as the defensive line coach. He was the longest-tenured assistant coach in team history, 1959-61, 1971-77, 1981-93, mostly coaching the defensive line.

For the Jets it’s another smart move by their new regime as earlier today they added mauling guard from the Seattle Seahawks James Carpenter. But for Revis he’s the all time free agent legend in a deal that ESPN’s Adam Schefter has said will make him the highest paid corner back of all time. Revis is coming up on 30 years old with an injury history, however when on the field the case can be made he is the best shutdown corner in…

  • Papering over the cracks

    25 Nov 2014 | 5:55 am
    Spurs fans have got to be the most fickle fans around, going from utter breakdown one week after losing to the Stoke’s and Newcastle’s of this world, to complete euphoria from narrow victories against Hull and Aston Villa.Kyle Naughton see's red in 2-1 defeat to Stoke City.Now yes, three points are three points. But when you support a team who’re supposed to challenge in and around the top of the table, there are certain expectation, which should be met. First of all to beat a poor side such as Aston Villa, of who had only scored four goals until they played us, should have been quite…
  • Tottenham Hotspur: What a Joke

    28 Oct 2014 | 8:43 am
    Just over a year ago, I wrote a blog post about the sacking of Andre Villas Boas, where I questioned whether the bullet should have stopped at Andre, or whether the problem lay further. Questions began developing over the club concerning many higher figures, the players and other aspects. Over our owner, Joe Lewis’ long term interest in the clubs success, as to us on the outside, it seems as though he’s more interested in keeping his grip on his money in his waning years, rather than push the boat out and invest.Furthermore, over Daniel Levy’s mentality to turn our club from an over…

  • Pochettino’s Tottenham- Underwhelming Efficiency

    22 Jul 2014 | 2:24 am
    It’d be quite the understatement to suggest that Tottenham’s transfer movements have as far this summer been quiet underwhelming, with the only major dealings being players leaving the lane, as opposed to players coming in, however, this may well prove to be the most efficient summer in recent years.Argentinian Mauricio Pochettino begins to shape his Spurs side.It’s well known that we’ve needed a minor clear-out, with many players failing to live up to the hype that their names hold, looking specifically at players such as Gylfi Sigurdsson and Benoit Assou-Ekotto, as well as a certain…

    Since 1911, Kimber Manufacturing has been known for their outstanding rifles. The brand produces exceptional high quality hunting rifles. In the recent years, Kimber has come up with Adirondack and Mountain Ascent. Both are perfect for mountain hunters. If you are unaware of it, Kimber has an exclusive Mountain line. These two rifles are impressive additions to this line. Hunting on the planes and mountains are quite different. In the mountain regions, the conditions are tougher to deal with and weight is a huge issue. The mountain line rifles are designed keeping this factor in mind. In…

These optics can be fixed and rugged or refined and variable so that there is an enhanced target identification and clear picture is viewed along with a narrow field of view. The magnified optics are durable as well. But what if you get all these features packed into a single optic? Sounds impossible, eh! Actually, it’s not.

Where this somewhat restless styled Kimber makes its name isn’t in its wild looks, but instead its weight; 4lbs 15oz. It’s not going to win on value point, nor actually styling and magnificence despite the fact that the machining is grand for a processing plant offering, however on the robust premise of being the lightest…

    According to a report in the Telegraph, the secret to Manchester United’s recent success is the thrill of “proving people wrong”.  This is apparently what defender Phil Jones believes to have inspired Louis van Gaal’s side to take a grip of their possible qualifying spot for next year’s Champions league.  After their comfortable win at Anfield on Sunday against Liverpool, they now have a 5 point lead on them in the league, leaving ManU in a comfortable position. We here at Betting Gods reported on the fact that Liverpool were fancied as favourites going into the match, although…

The world number one beat old-foe Roger Federer, who is in great form himself, in last week’s final, and nobody else has really looked like beating the Serb recently. Federer isn’t playing this week – and it looks likely that 2009 and 2013 Miami Champion Andy Murray or four-time Miami runner-up Rafael Nadal will have to stop him.

    bookie punisher
    4 Mar 2015 | 5:21 am
    Stuttgart will make another attempt to escape the relegation zone after they successfully convinced everyone in the match against Dortmund they can play better than what their current Bundesliga standing suggests. On Friday they host Hertha Berlin, the 14th Bundesliga team that come from a 1-0 win over Augsburg. The hosts are unable to win in seven matches, and after the undeserved defeat against Borussia Dortmund, they played a well-deserved 1-1 draw against Hannover 96. Last season Stuttgart finished 15th, but they won’t be able to rely on their main goalscorer who got a red card against…

    Coppa Italia has its fair share of drama as the current title holders will make the trip to Rome to face the same team they eliminated last year. The first leg of the semi-final sees Lazio at home, which might favor Napoli as the away goal rule might end up being crucial. Lazio are in good spirits after three consecutive Serie A wins with only two conceded goals. Felipe Anderson returned against Sassuolo with a goal and an assist in the 3-0 away win. At home, Lazio are alternating between a win and a loss in the last five games. In this season’s Coppa Italia, Lazio eliminated Varese, Torino…

The hosts have a one point advantage over Sunderland and will look forward to continue the tradition of winning against them set since 2010. After the 1-1 draw against Manchester City, Hull City went on to win two matches in a row and concede only one goal, only to end up in heartbreak against Stoke after Peter Crouch’s goal. Without Jelavic with a persistent knee problem, Hull City are not being sufficiently bold in the attack, but Steve…

    When the NCAA men’s basketball tournament picks up full speed Thursday, many fans will tune in with the hopes of seeing one thing: upsets. Some no doubt will come on last-minute buzzer beaters, but plenty will probably be long-simmering, the kinds of games that you can’t look away from. Those games will be all about tension: The underdog can’t possibly hold on to this lead, can it?We can figure out the answer to that question. Or at least what we should expect to happen when an upset is brewing — specifically, at what point in the game an underdog with a lead is more likely to…

Now, 17 years later, that’s still the only 16 vs. 1 upset in the history of March Madness.That was the first — and, as of this writing, last — time that a No. 1, 2 or 3 seed has lost an opening game in the women’s tournament since it took a 64-team structure in 1994.

  • Four Pass-Catcher Contracts That Don’t Add Up

    25 Mar 2015 | 3:22 pm
    With this years NFL salary cap increasing $10 million, and every team other than the St. Louis Rams carrying over their remaining space from 2014, I expected to see teams throwing around money. Especially considering some teams are far below the required 89% of cap space spent (cash from 2013 through 2016) required by the start of the 2017 league year. While some teams are spending that money wisely, and getting the most out of their dollar to sign players at what they are worth, or below it. Some teams managed to live above their means in what appears to be paying for the name, rather than…

No,” was Chris Kelly’s quick response following a 5-3 loss to the Lightning. “We lost some big games, but I still think we control our destiny,” Kelly added on. “We have nine games left. If we go out and play well for these nine games, then good things will happen.

    Sarah Davis
    25 Mar 2015 | 9:02 pm
    With Opening Day less than two weeks away, the Royals aired their first of four Spring Training games on Wednesday in efforts to prepare for the regular season. The Boys in Blue come in at 13-8, which is good enough for second in the Cactus League standings. They face American League Central foe, the Chicago White Sox, who are just 7-11, and not showing any improvement thus far in the spring games. Jason Vargas took the hill for the Royals. Vargas comes in with a bit of an inflated ERA at 17.55, but in spring, it’s hard to remember that ERA does not measure whether a guy is struggling…

This time we have to fast-forward from 12 year old me to 21 year old me. A lot had happened in those eight years, junior high, high school and half of college. The Royals went from being the kings of baseball to lowly Midwest jesters.

  • Royals News: Finnegan Sent Down

    23 Mar 2015 | 9:11 am
    The Royals announced that Brandon Finnegan would be heading down to the minors to work as a starter. There had been some discussions that he may be able to make the club to work as a left handed reliever out of the pen, and when Tim Collins went down with an elbow injury, the talk intensified. Finnegan was never able to seize that opportunity however, and had a poor showing this spring, finishing with an 8.53 ERA in Cactus League play. There are two schools of thought. One is that Finnegan could have possibly helped the club in the short term, much like he was able to do at the end of last…

    PSG – The Oil-Rich Team That Amazed In UCL Chelsea vs PSG from 11 March 2011 will sure become a classic of UEFA Champions League. It was a match full of surprises. PSG was for sure the better team and deserved to go further the Quarter Finals, while Chelsea remained stuck in a tactic that led to a complete disaster. What made the difference between the two teams? In my opinion the difference between Chelsea and PSG was made by the quality of football displayed by the two teams.

    Harry Kane – Tottenham’s Hurricane England’s new raising star, Harry Kane, is undoubtedly one of the best strikers in Premier League. Tottenham’s 21 years old striker is Premier League’s forth topscorer with 14 goals in 22 appearances, behind Diego Costa (17), Sergio Aguero (17) and Charlie Austin (14). Harry Kane is a complete striker, strong and hardworking, being able to score both from distance and from close range. Kane is a product of Tottenham’s youth system.

    It is well documented that Wayne Rooney was frustrated at repeatedly being used in midfield by Sir Alex Ferguson during the Scot’s time at Old Trafford. He has spoken in the past about his preference to play as a striker and has even asked for a transfer in the final weeks of Ferguson’s time in charge.David Moyes later reverted Rooney back to his preferred role during his ill-fated 10 months reign but under Louis Van Gaal, Wayne Rooney was again asked to play in that deeper role behind the two strikers and he has been simply awesome.More importantly, he looked like he enjoyed…

    The NCAA women’s tourney top seeds all cruised through the first weekend … in fact, in the No. 1 seeds’ eight games no opponent came within 10 points and most of the games were 20 and 30-point type blowouts. But now things get a bit more interesting. Yes, the No. 1 seeds were no-brainers, but will they be challenged at the Sweet 16 level this weekend? Will it be the four No. 1 seeds that advance to next weekend’s Final Four, or will a team like Tennessee, Florida State or Baylor mess it all up?

  • Video Technology should be introduced for referees

    Adam Dennehey
    26 Mar 2015 | 11:22 pm
    Video Technology should be introduced for referees Football nowadays is referred to as a business. Finance, revenues, ownership and the boardroom are spoken about more than ever before. Yes we fans like to think of it as ‘our game’ but it means much more than that now. It’s a cut-throat business. Teams want the best players, owners demand instant success and it’s now vey much part of the entertainment industry. So based on that logic, shouldn’t we want the best referees and assistants to officiate our game? After all isn’t a match and a league only as good as it’s officials?

With that in mind here is a prediction of England’s best starting squad to face the minnows on Friday.

    Last week saw the final three English teams in European competition this season crash out following an all round dismal display from our nation's sides. Arsenal, Man City and Everton all saw their European dreams ended on consecutive nights last week, with Man City the only team excused for it due to the standard of their opponents. However, during the European games this season, as they do every season, referees have been strict and adhered to the laws of the game rather than 'big club' reputations. Our players aren't used to this from referees and those at top clubs often get caught out by…

    Liverpool host rivals Manchester United on Sunday afternoon in a tie that may define the fortune of both clubs relative to qualification for next season’s Champions League. The Anfield based outfit is two points adrift of their visitors and a triumph over their fiercest of rivals would see them overtake Van Gaal’s men who are currently placed fourth in the league. Liverpool are the only unbeaten side in the English top flight since the turn of the year and will be looking to maintain that feat when they come up against a United side that has blown hot and cold this term.

    I used to be what you would call a chain smoker. I genuinely enjoyed the act of smoking. I didn’t (and still don’t) feel “normal” unless I have some form of nicotine in my system. As I continued smoking my breathing became increasingly strained. It had gotten to the point where I had to inhale epinephrine at least once a day just to feel like I could breathe. After a few months of this I came to the conclusion that not being able to breathe blows, and I purchased an electronic cigarette for myself. I absolutely loved it. It tasted fantastic and gave me the nicotine hit I…

    The Academy has lost all credibility in my book. I’m starting to think all the Oscar voters are blind. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has sunk to new lows in its continued condemnation of comedy and, specifically, Bill Murray. St. Vincent was easily the best film I saw in 2014. I wept the first time I saw it. I’ve seen it three times now, and I still cry at the end. Yet the Academy didn’t bother to nominate Murray or St. Vincent for anything — not a damn thing. Bill Murray gives an impeccable performance as Vin, a Vietnam vet down on his luck and losing his…
  • Why Alice Should Shove Encryption Down Bob’s Throat

    The new, fashionable claim is that privacy is dead. Which is understandable. Even I have made this claim. As it is close to two years since we learnt that the NSA is keeping a very close eye on everyone connected to the Internet — especially if they use online services located in the United States. Yet there seems to be a collective ‘meh’ when it comes to privacy, even if we have a number of options to guard our privacy. Also, any uproar regarding encroachment on privacy tends to be short-lived. I’ve lost count of how many times people have been upset with Facebook and how they…

There is still some good journalism out there, but it’s difficult to come by — a lot of noise is suffocating it. It’s more like journalism is lying in the gutter, slowly bleeding out. But it’s not the loss of blood that is killing it. It’s the alcohol. Journalism is drinking itself to death, like a homeless alcoholic that has given up on life. Everyone walks by, complaining about its body lying there, drunk, bleeding…

In the MotoGP discussion group on the popolar business platform, content production executive Mark Coyle cleverly discussed the urgency of a digital revolution within the MotoGP championship and at races. Now, Mark is a highly valued professional and needs no further endorsements from me, yet the piece was so brilliantly written and so timely I couldn’t help but repost. Of course, I didn’t bona fide cut and paste the article, but asked permission to Mark first. So,…

    25 Mar 2015 | 2:41 am
    Last week’s Qatar test signaled an end to Winter testing and the Repsol Honda Team are en route back to the desert for the first round of the season. It’s been a positive testing period for reigning World Champion, Marc Marquez, and his teammate Dani Pedrosa. After a challenging test in Valencia at the end of 2014, the Honda Racing Corporation engineers returned to Japan and worked hard all winter, in order to arrive at the first test in Malaysia with additional chassis’ for both riders to try. Since then, progress has been steady as both Marc and Dani fine tuned their Honda RC213V…

    Up early, and at the train station for the 9:14 am train to Edale, Decathlon Sheffield Sports Advisors; Dom Evans – product trainer for Quechua, Simmon and Wedze, Danny Foster – nutrition expert and Cláudia Braz-Nunes hit the Peak District for a day of hiking and product testing. We set off from Edale and headed North towards Grinds Brook. A tough accent that takes over an hour to complete, but provides staggering views when you reach the top. Grinds brook is a waterfall that provides a great challenge to navigate, but is also a fantastic experience to both the novice and…
  • Review: Quechua Forclaz 500 Walking Trousers

    Danny
    21 Mar 2015 | 10:03 am
    These trousers took me by surprise when I first put them on. I was firstly amazed by their amazing comfort and fit. They cost £34.99, very reasonable for a performance hiking trouser. They also come in three colours: black, dark green and grey, and are available in sizes XS to 3XL. As a regular hiker and mountaineering enthusiast I’ve had years of experience with walking trousers and generally expect trousers to feel and perform to a certain standard. This was perhaps why I was so surprised. Assuming it’s not raining, these are hands down the best trousers I have ever used, and here is…

    20 Mar 2015 | 3:17 am
    Ridiculously lightweight at only 1080 grams, a huge capacity of 51 litres and 10 year guarantee, is this the best 2-3 day rucksack Quechua have made? I’m seriously impressed and here’s why. Main Compartment, Pockets & Straps The Main compartment holds 51 litres, making it suitable for multi-day hikes. It can also be access from the bottom. The main pocket features a pouch to hold a water bladder. I used my 3 L water bladder at full capacity and it fit perfectly. My only criticism is the lack of a strap inside to hook your water bladder onto. The mouthpiece can be directed out of the…

    Over the weekend I’ve had a number of customers buying spare inner tubes, tyre levers and multi tools for their road bikes, so it sounds as though you’re all getting out on the road again racking up the miles! I’ve also been asked for advice on how to carry your spares whilst out on the bike. The most practical way is with a bag that fits underneath the saddle; known as a saddlebag. My bag of choice is the B’Twin 0.4l saddlebag which I’ve used throughout the winter. Why did I choose this one? It’s well made and relatively inexpensive (£4.99), and like most B’Twin products…

Despite the rapid growth of betting in Europe, the United States have been adopting a tough stance against the industry till date and consequently, gambling on sports remains illegal in most states outside of Nevada. There are hundreds of European licensed operators offering online casino & sports betting and the industry is growing.

It seemed that for the longest time, Xavi was going to end up a player at NYCFC in the MLS. He would have already had a friend in David Villa, he would have been paired with Frank Lampard and he would get to live in New York. Apparently none of that matters to Xavi who basically led on the MLS for the longest time. Instead, Xavi is heading to Qatar to play for Al Sadd on three year deal. There’s…

  • Philippe Coutinho – The Missing Piece To The Liverpool Jigsaw

    1 Mar 2015 | 12:20 pm
      Liverpool’s narrative has over the weeks begun taking a different turn; once considered destined to finish out of the European spots, they have gathered momentum over the weeks to slowly but surely stake their claim for a top four finish. Daniel Sturridge’s return from injury may have provided a much-needed psychological boost after a lengthy layoff, after the news of Steven Gerrard’s imminent departure to America caused some invisible damage. But he is not the sole reason for Liverpool’s upturn in fortune – far from it. The revival of Sterling after a string of fatigued…

    20 Feb 2015 | 8:08 am
      A phenomenal talent in Inter Milan, an inconsistent player for Manchester City, a rigid and stubborn player at AC Milan and now a soon-to-be-labelled ‘bad body’ for Liverpool; meet Mario Balotelli, a man they love to hate. Liverpool spent 16 million pounds on the gamble that is Mario, and he has so far produced a return of only four goals to abysmally justify his price tag. While many fans took to the signing of the 24 year-old with a pinch of salt, it was inevitable that wherever Mario goes, rumour mongers and tale twisters follow. However, is that justified? Me thinks not. In the…

It took some seven years, but two poor hires—Rich Rodriguez (2008-2010, 15-22 record) and Brady Hoke (2011-2014, 31-20)—and an abysmal 46-42 record later, the stars aligned properly for the Wolverines to land Captain Comeback, Jim Harbaugh.   Harbaugh’s time in San Francisco was done after a lackluster 8-8 2014 season with the 49ers that included a falling out with management and an apparently toxic locker room, as per Fox Sports.

    The NFL tag line Any Given Sunday has gotten its share of overuse, but in a week where an 0-10 Oakland Raiders team got its first win over the AFC West-leading Kansas City Chiefs (7-4), it’s hard to argue with the notion that the NFL has quality from top to bottom.   At the end of Week 12, the only certainties seem to be death, taxes and a convincing New England Patriots win. The Pats (9-2) have rattled off seven straight and have distinguished themselves as the only truly elite team in the league. Vegas odds reflect this as NE currently sits at around 3/1 to win the Super Bowl,…

    New GM Ryan Pace knows what key fact going into the 2015 NFL draft.  He only has six picks.  For a guy who is trying to rebuild a roster, that isn’t a number one wants to hear.  So what is the best way to fix it? Trades. Obviously the easiest way is attempting to move back in the draft itself, dropping down in the order for extra picks, allowing other teams to move up.  Based on lessons he learned under Mickey Loomis is New Orleans though, don’t expect Pace to go that route. The only other way at that point is trading players.  Loomis did plenty of that in his career and has…
  • Creative Ways to Make Baseball Faster

    Ray Fischer
    26 Mar 2015 | 7:21 pm
    Baseball is test piloting some ideas in the minors to speed up the game and make it more appealing to a younger audience. They are trying to utilize a pitch clock, changing the intentional walk, and being tougher on batters staying in the batters box. I am all for speeding up the game, and I think these ideas would work, but the game needs to be fun and entertaining along with being faster. These suggestions might help too. Bring Back the Bullpen Cars Teams used to have decked out golf carts to bring pitchers in from the bullpen. With most bullpens being off the field, it would be easy to…

    The memory of losing prized collegiate prospect Kevin Hayes to the New York Rangers is something that has likely weighed heavy on the mindset of Blackhawks General Manager Stan Bowman all season long. One could only assume that these hauntings have intensified as of late as Hayes continues to improve seemingly by the day as his Rangers continue to increase their lead atop the Eastern Conference’s Metropolitan Division.

    There’s no greater legitimiser of NBA superstardom than winning an MVP award. Only the very best can say they’ve claimed one, and even then there are some legends forced to go without. Call it bad timing.This year, however, the race was wide open from the start. Only seven current players have won one. One of those players was Kobe Bryant, shut down a few months into the season. Kevin Durant missed the first 17 games of the season and has been in and out of the OKC side ever since with little niggles. Derrick Rose, the youngest man to ever win the MVP, was coming back from years of injury…

The Barcelona forward is on duty with Brazil as they prepare to face France in tonight’s friendly in Paris and he has showed off some unbelievable tekkers with this goal on the training ground. Neymar helped his side go four points clear at the top of La Liga on Sunday with a 2-1 win over El Classico rivals Real Madrid and it seems he has carried his form on to international duty if this video is anything to go by.

Here’s the thing, a coach and an athlete, no matter how long they’ve known each other, have a relationship. And ending that relationship can be easy. But doing it with class, respect, dignity — now that is hard to do. I say that because so many coaches end relationships in rotten ways. I know because I’ve been cut from more teams than I want to remember. Rejected This is all about rejection. You run a tribe — in this case a sport team — and for some…

    My first trip as a head coach was a disaster. We were to travel 90 minutes for a day of competition. Twenty kids, a few rowing shells, for several events. Very simple in the big scheme of things. I was so wrong. I had ordered the team lunches, but for the wrong day. I had requested transportation, but had neglected to get gas money. We were departing at 7am, but I ignored major road construction that added an hour to our drive. We arrived late, athletes got hungry, and I had to borrow gas money for the trip home. All of these hassles could have been prevented if I had just listened to John…
  • Coaching Sports When Things Go Wrong: 8 Tips To Use

    Sometimes, not often, but sometimes, I wish I coached an indoor sport. Especially when our river looks like this: Usually we are ice-free by this time of year, practicing happily on the water. But not this year. Ohh no… This year we’ve been thrown a knuckleball. Batter Up! A knuckleball is a pitch which has the tendency to move unexpectantly and erratically, veering from its original path. It looks like one thing, yet becomes another. Here’s the thing … coaches are thrown knuckleballs all the time: A starting player has to go home for a family emergency, right before the big game…

    Ft. Worth Fred
    24 Mar 2015 | 4:00 pm
    I wouldn't describe myself as a red-hot basketball fan, but I thoroughly enjoy the NCAA Men's tournament every spring. Some team always emerges as the unheralded Cinderella, just as some other more highly regarded team stubs its toe. Both the players and their followers bring a level of passion not found in the pro game (witness the girl in the Villanova band playing and crying after her team's unexpected loss).What drives me nuts, though, is the frequency with which the game is interrupted by time-outs, either given to the teams per the rules, or required for TV commercials. It's only a…

    If you ever needed proof that the liberal bias of nearly any mainstream news organization extends well beyond the headlines or front pages and into the sports news, try reading any - ANY - story involving labor issues. Pick a sport: football, basketball, hockey, baseball, whatever, the stories are always the same: players are exploited shamelessly by greedy, racist, robber barons.

    With friends like Christine Brennan, Jameis Winston doesn't need any enemies. Writing in USA Today, she paints the profile of a serial misfit and small-time hoodlum who beat the rap on the most serious charge made against him - sexual assault. With all the compassion of your beloved teacher in third grade, she advises Winston to sit down with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and open up about all his past misdeeds, including, one assumes, the rape charge that was never proven. My take on Winston is a little different. IMHO, most of his antics, while irresponsible and juvenile, were…

    Ever bought a half and half scarf? Then it’s to the gallows for you pal… Partisanship plays an innate role of what it means to follow a football club. As fans we define ourselves not just by who we follow but also by those we have chosen to separate ourselves from. But rather than seeing this as something to lament; the negative image of the ‘fan’ as an unthinking, irrational, blindly obedient drone, it’s an approach that makes perfect psychological and ethical sense.

It is all too easy to get lost in the memories of golden years when trying to forget any current ills or problems.
