''It is great to come back to Madison Square Garden, to be home here and fight here,'' Klitschko said. His jab and straight right hands kept Jennings from getting inside, and the unbeaten American had little chance of winning from distance. Yet, with Jennings still standing in the middle rounds and beginning to land some punches, the Americans in the crowd began…

    Ryan Glasspiegel
    25 Apr 2015 | 5:25 pm
    Jerryd Bayless somehow snuck behind Derrick Rose on a backdoor cut to hit a lay-up, giving Milwaukee a 92-90 win over Chicago at the end of regulation. The Bulls had the ball with a chance to hold for last shot, but Rose lost the ball with a little under two seconds remaining, and Jason Kidd got a timeout for the Bucks to advance the ball past half-court. The Bulls still hold a 3-1 lead in the series, with two games left to play at the United Center, so it’s not like this buzzer beater was earth shattering for them. However, given that the team is characteristically banged up, the extra…

Houston Rockets Center Dwight Howard obviously saw and/or heard about it, so, he attempted to show up LeBron by doing his own… I am now going to blog my thoughts in bullet point form because that’s all this deserves. To prove how much of a freak-if-nature LeBron James is physically, even 7-foot, 275-pound center Dwight Howard couldn’t overhand it the full-length of the court. He had to ‘discus throw’ it. I guess this is how NBA teams practice…

    Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco said he does not think the team needs to draft a wide receiver despite losing WR Torrey Smith to the San Francisco 49ers in free agency. Footballguys View: This is a great draft class for wide receivers (not quite as good as last year's though), so we're expecting the Ravens to draft a wideout with a premium pick. We'll see if they address the tight end position as well in this draft, although this class is not strong at that spot.

Footballguys View: Leonard Williams fits anywhere. He's arguably the best player in this draft regardless of position. He's smart, quick, strong and plays with a fire that doesn't quit. He'll be a top-5 pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Footballguys View: Yes. A history lesson here....and that's about it. The Patriots are usually drafting at the end...or near the end...of the first round because they play deep into the playoffs most seasons.

  • KSK Mock Draft: SNL Sketches

    24 Apr 2015 | 8:03 am
    FOX The overall quality of Saturday Night Live is something that is always being debated or complained about, but it’s hard to deny that the show has put together an impressive portfolio of great sketches over its 40-year run. Today we’re drafting our favorite individual sketches. While there are several beloved recurring bits, we made the draft about individual sketches to open things up a bit. So while there were no repeat characters in our draft, there could have been! Anyway, it leaves more options for reader picks in the comments. 1. Old James – Debbie Downer The idea…

    CA Everyone loves sports guarantees because most of the time they don’t work out and we get to laugh at the person who made them. ESPECIALLY when that person is Tony Romo, whose every failure becomes Internet comedy fodder, so it should come as fantastic news that the Cowboys quarterback told people that his team will win the next Super Bowl. Speaking earlier this month at a gala where he accepted Nancy Lieberman Lifetime Achievement Award, Romo closed out his acceptance speech with an assurance that Dallas would win the next Super Bowl. “This award is very meaningful to me, mostly…

Not only did our gratuitous violence win, but we stabbed their faces with a knife, carved open their skulls, then exploded them for good measure, as is the Mortal Kombat way. The next Mortal Kombat should feature a practice mode where you get to try out your moves on Jack Thompson. That’ll show concerned old people that we handle things like mature adults.

  • Demetrious Johnson vs. Kyoji Horiguchi: What We Learned from UFC 186 Title Fight

    25 Apr 2015 | 10:47 pm
    Few fans or pundits gave Kyoji Horiguchi much of a chance against Demetrious Johnson in the UFC 186 main event. On paper, the bout was promising, but featured an undeniably green prospect entering the cage against the most dominant male fighter in MMA today. In the cage, it largely panned out like just like that. Horiguchi, a deadly-accurate karateka, got a bit of offense in and found his groove early, landing punches at range and knees in the clinch. Johnson, as one would expect from a long-time champ, made the adjustments and took control.  Minute by minute, Johnson became more…

But as you reach for the bottle of aspirin and ponder the walk of shame, dawn’s inevitable arrival will bring with it an unmistakable boxing reality that feels like it’s had about a century of gestation. There’s a heavyweight fight out there—at long last—that’s simply got to get made. It’s time for Wladimir Klitschko to get in a ring with Deontay Wilder. No offense is intended to the 17 foes against whom the mammoth Ukrainian has now racked up 18 title defenses since beating Chris Byrd…

    Weather disrupted NASCAR's top series for a second consecutive week when Saturday night's Sprint Cup Series race was postponed because of persistent rain at Richmond International Raceway. NASCAR rescheduled the event for Sunday at 1 p.m. It's the first time this season the series has been unable to race because of rain, but completing last Sunday's race at Bristol Motor Speedway was a challenge. Rain caused nearly a 90-minute delay Sunday at Bristol Motor Speedway, and the race was stopped for a four-hour rain delay not long after it finally began. Denny Hamlin, who grew up 20 minutes from…

    NASCAR says three pit road crew members were taken to a hospital after a fire broke out on pit road Friday night during the Xfinity Series race at Richmond International Raceway. Two of the crew members were working in Brendan Gaughan's pit, where the fire erupted, and one was in Eric McClure's pit. Television replays showed a huge ball of flame that appeared to engulf at least one crew member in Gaughan's pit. NASCAR identified the three injured as Gaughan's rear tire changer, Anthony O'Brien, and fueler, Josh Wittman, and Clifford Turner, a crew member from McClure's team.

  • Latest On The Rumored Hamilton Trade

    Brad Johnson
    25 Apr 2015 | 8:01 pm
    The Rangers are still awaiting approval on the rumored Josh Hamilton deal, writes T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com. Sullivan’s source with the Rangers see no impediment to finalizing the agreement. As Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register tweets, the swap is slow moving because it involves five parties – the Angels, Rangers, Hamilton, the commissioner’s office, and the players’ union. The Rangers are expected to cover about $7MM of the roughly $82MM remaining on his contract. Since Texas has no income tax, Hamilton is reportedly willing to renegotiate the size of his…

    Phillies tickets sales are at their lowest since the opening of Citizen’s Bank Park, writes Bob Brookover of the Philadelphia Inquirer. Brookover wonders if the fans will return when the team begins to turn the corner in a few years. Philadelphia has a history of punishing noncompetitive teams. Other franchises like the Nationals, Indians, and Braves have seen a much more tepid fan response to winning. For what it’s worth, I’m fairly confident that ticket sales will return to previous levels once the team reaches the postseason. The Phillies will remain patient with top…

    Some within the industry believe the Nationals should trade for Jonathan Papelbon and install Drew Storen as the setup man, says Ken Rosenthal with FOX Sports (video link). While there is some concern over Papelbon’s velocity, he’s off to a great start and “never misses his spots.” His $13MM vesting option for 2016 remains an obstacle. Rosenthal notes that the Tigers and Blue Jays are other possible destinations. I agree that these three clubs could all use relief help. To me, it makes more sense for the Nationals to address their bullpen at the trade deadline. The…

    SATURDAY 4:54pm: The Angels and Rangers have agreed to the deal, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times tweets. The deal still needs to be approved by the MLBPA and by MLB, however. There are no specific indications that will be a problem, but approval might not be as automatic, particularly in the union’s case, since Hamilton has reportedly agreed to forgo salary in the trade. 12:46pm: Hamilton would receive a significant buyout if he were to excercise his opt-out, Rosenthal tweets. That makes sense — if not for a buyout, there would be few scenarios in which it would make…

    For this San Francisco-based brand, pants are a necessary evil; a belief which the entire team and their customers live by. The manifesto states that Chubbies make shorts and only shorts, but at the highest standards. Chubbies shorts have a radical, sharp look, but at the same time they are very comfortable and suitable for those outdoor activities that men enjoy. Things like spending time at the beach, playing sports with your college roomates, and of course, barbecues.

This is why Alternative Apparel has made a commitment to developing and manufacturing products in a responsible manner. This includes sustainable fabrics, natural and low-impact, non-toxic dyes, and finishing processes, which consume no chemicals and 60% less water. This is why I am such a fan of Alternative Apparel; while these high standards in manufacturing might not be the cheapest route possible, it definitely makes a difference that is worth the extra…

    Most people know of San Clemente as a small and peaceful beach city that is home to some of the world's best surfers including Kolohe Andino and many more. It is also home to many famed surf spots including T-Street and Lower Trestles. I grew up surfing in San Clemente and was apart of their junior lifeguard program for many years; without ever seeing a shark. And we did some training exercises that took us pretty far out including pier swims, boat drops and free diving at the West Reef.However, in the past couple weeks, there have been a flurry of confirmed shark sightings.

    The Senators look to keep their magical playoff run going with another do or die win on home ice on Sunday while the Canadiens take their third crack at wrapping up the series. The Montreal Canadiens had the Sens on the ropes after going up 3-0 in the series and even though they were in the driver’s seat you could sense that thing were far from over as Ottawa was the better team through those five games and could in their own right had been up by the same mark.

    Jennifer Smith
    21 Apr 2015 | 10:00 am
    Weird sports – they’re everywhere, and played by everyone. The things people do in the name of sports would curl your toes. No, really: one of those sports is toe wrestling. That didn’t quite make it into the Olympics, but it was not for lack of trying. When you think about it, there really is no such thing as a weird sport. All sports are just a way for humans to turn everyday activities into friendly competition, and explore the limits of our physicality.

    Ability is everything on the field, court, ice and pitch. If you can’t perform to the best of your physical abilities, someone will be ready to take your place. Your coaches and managers, who should be considered as mentors and borderline parental figures, won’t hesitate to replace you if your body is no longer able to perform the way it once did. This puts an enormous amount of pressure on men and women passionate about the sports they play. Unfortunately, it also fuels a culture of concealing pain and injury, which can have devastating effects on an athletes’ livelihood in both the…
  • Five Extreme Sports Athletes to Follow on Social Media

    Noella Schink
    7 Apr 2015 | 9:20 am
    In the good old days (that were bad for extreme sports), keeping up-to-date with cool athletes amounted to magazine subscriptions and the occasional sports program. Often times those dirt bike, skiing and other extreme sports mags were published monthly – and finding a sports show covering anything beyond football, baseball, basketball or hockey was next to impossible. Yes, getting your extreme sports fix also meant waiting for the Olympic games every four years or catching an MX championship meet whenever the networks felt like carrying one. Even cable channels, considered extreme…

    Starting a business is never an easy task. It takes a lot of intense planning, execution of your strategy and little bit of luck to create the kind of business that you can build your life around. We know that businesses fail at an exceedingly high mark, reported at anywhere from 50-90%. Due to this high failure rate, every aspiring entrepreneur should be seeking out whatever potential advantages they can find.

Ash coached the defensive backs on that team while Partridge coached the DL and special teams.  The game began with a 97-yard KO return TD and the Badgers never looked back, smothering the top-ranked Buckeyes 30-18.

  • Let's Not Forget How Good Braxton Miller Can Be

    Michael Citro
    25 Apr 2015 | 6:15 am
    Any coach would love to have a returning senior quarterback who had started for three seasons. It would be a major bonus if that quarterback had spent three years rewriting your school’s record books, winning two conference player-of-the-year awards, making himself a Heisman Trophy frontrunner and had already led your team to an undefeated season. And yet, there is a sizable portion of the Ohio State fan base that would have Urban Meyer opt not to let Braxton Miller start for the Buckeyes in 2015.

  • Spring Rewind: What We Learned About Ohio State's Wide Receivers

    Tim Shoemaker
    25 Apr 2015 | 5:10 am
    Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer has said multiple times his 2014 Buckeyes were “the most improved team” he’s ever been around. When you think about that, two position groups instantly come to mind. One is the offensive line, and the other is wide receiver. Meyer was critical of those two units early in the season, especially after Ohio State’s 35-21 loss to Virginia Tech in Week 2. “I thought we’ve improved at wide receiver and we just didn’t get open enough,” Meyer said following that Sept. 6 loss to the Hokies. By the end of the season, though, that certainly wasn’t the…

    When Thad Matta sat in D'Angelo Russell's living room and received word of the star guard's intentions to suit up for Ohio State, the head coach and Russell's father were on the same page. "We told these guys up front, and I think this is what took them time because they’re people of their word, they told us this is a two-year commitment," Matta said Thursday. "That was Antonio’s plan, D’Angelo was always two years." But as the 2014-15 college basketball season churned along and Russell blossomed into a first-team All-American and the Big Ten Freshman of the Year, Matta knew his star…

    I grew up, probably like most of you, in an era when sports was not a 24/7 prospect on TV. In fact it was pretty much limited to the game of the week on Saturday for baseball, and of course college football on Saturday and the NFL on Sunday’s in the fall. You had college basketball on weekends, but the NBA was almost non-existent…I can remember when there would be a game broadcast on the occasional Sunday and it would be all the topic of discussion the next day at school—almost as much about it being on at all as it was the basketball game itself. Frankly, I can still remember my…

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.

The university did not find Nungesser responsible for any assault, and his accuser, Emma Sulkowicz, has been protesting this outcome by carrying a mattress with her around campus, a protest that is doubling as performance art project for credit in her art class. The protest has apparently made Nungesser’s life difficult. He alleges that it has caused him to experience…
  • Another call to action on domestic violence

    Sue Favor
    24 Apr 2015 | 10:48 am
    From the Washington Post: Of course, one can’t equate domestic violence in the WNBA with domestic violence in men’s professional sports. Last year, ESPN counted 48 players “considered guilty of domestic violence under league policy” in the NFL since 2000, and Bleacher Report noted nine NBA players charged with domestic assault in the past three years. Even the most creative Googling for “WNBA domestic assault” won’t return numbers like these. Still, the league is not immune from the problem. Though WNBA players in legal trouble are not covered as closely as male pro athletes in…

    Today the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights issued guidance reminding educational institutions of their obligation to designate a Title IX Coordinator.  This has been a requirement since the initial Title IX regulations promulgated in 1975, but far too often we read about institutions lacking in this critical area of compliance.  Lately, though, it seems like the Title IX Coordinator obligation is sinking in, as colleges and universities in particular are trying to catch up with their obligations to address sexual assault on their campuses. As a result, whereas at one…

    As we mentioned yesterday, Wichita State President is “looking into” why players are leaving the program. More details have emerged about why the players are looking to leave the Shockers. Six days ago, it looked like the reason that four players were looking to leave Wichita State, was because their head coach was a finalist for the Kansas position. But as days have accumulated, their motive for departure belies that notion — and had nothing to do with Jody Adams potential leaving. As a matter of fact, it looks like the maelstrom within the women’s basketball program…

    The Red Sox came off a pretty lackluster series against the Rays and hoped to get back on course when they headed into Camden Yards to take on the O’s.  The Sox had Rick Porcello on the mound vs. Miguel Gonzalez for the Orioles.  Porcello has had an issue this season with giving up the long ball which would continue today, but happily the Sox also got the ball out of the park to give the team the win in the long run. Porcello started out striking out the first 5 batters he faced and looked dominant against the Orioles lineup.  Porcello was cruising and kept the game tied 0-0 until…

Sure, the Red Sox are still in first place, but now they are sharing it with two other teams.  The Sox are in a three way tie for 1st place with the Blue Jays and the Yankees.  The Red Sox were able to split a 4 game series with the O’s and then they lost a series to the Rays.  The Sox are lucky to still be hanging on to a piece of 1st place at this point.  They are in a long stretch of only playing against teams within the division, so winning games is even more important.  The Sox don’t…

The team does not seem to want to look outside the organization, at least for the present. According the the Globe’s Nick Cafardo, Cole Hamels will still command a high price-perhaps including Mookie Betts or Xander Bogearts. The Pawtucket rotation has at least three possibilities-Eduardo Rodriguez, Henry Owens and Brian Johnson.  However, all three lack sufficient AAA experience and are generally…

    Quinton “Rampage” Jackson came back to the UFC with Saturday night’s pay-per-view in Montreal, but getting to that point wasn’t exactly easy. After declaring himself a free agent and clear of his Bellator contract, Rampage re-signed with the UFC and was announced to be part of the UFC 186 card. Then a judge put an injunction on the whole thing to allow for Jackson and Bellator to work things out. Luckily for Rampage, the injunction was lifted this week and he was able to fight and beat Fabio Maldonado. By all appearances, Rampage is back in a place he feels more comfortable and…

    F1 lap times have been falling over the years but it is tricky to find a general assumption. The F1 cars have changed over the years, becoming less powerful and less loud. Even resurfacing of the track affects lap times as in the Brazilian Grand Prix last which saw significant improvements in lap times after it was freshly resurfaced. However, circuits which have been the same over the years have seen a fall in the lap times over the years. The lap times this season as compared to last years are however quicker despite having the same engines and minor changes in regulations. This shows the…

And yet, given a few years and unique circumstances, he became a dear friend, even standing next to me years later at my wedding. All because of that same game. I attended Stanford, recruited as a water polo goalie. Sean Nolan was a year ahead of me, at UC Berkeley, also a recruited goalie. Upon arriving to campus, Stanford and Cal freshmen are indoctrinated with the meme informing them of their mutual dislike—one of those evolutionary vestiges of us versus other.

    The following was submitted by Joe Coles: When was the last time you went to a baseball game? Minor league baseball attendance has been on a downward trend the past ten years. As sports like soccer are growing in popularity in Utah, especially with young people, the old father-son ballpark outing is becoming a thing of the past. Average attendance per game at Smith’s Ballpark in 2014 was 6,722, the lowest average attendance since the 2011 season.

With Luis Gil starting in his spot, we assumed that we would be getting a look at how the future would look with Gil dictating the midfield. Then minutes prior to the kick off, Chris Schuler left to go to the locker room. Elias Vasquez was asked to start on a minute’s notice and didn’t disappoint. Early in the match, Alvaro Saborio was given a one on one chance with the goalie but skyed the ball over the net. That would be…

    SB Nation NHL Staff
    25 Apr 2015 | 11:09 pm
    The Stanley Cup Playoffs are widely considered the best postseason in any North American sport, and this year, which features no clear-cut favorites, should live up to these lofty expectations. The field is so wide open that many pundits have the No. 1 seeds (Anaheim Ducks, New York Rangers) losing in the opening round. Ask a group of 10 hockey fans who they think will win it all, and you may get 10 different answers. The Rangers, winners of the 2014-15 President's Trophy, certainly feel pressure to come out on top. New York lost in the Final last spring to the Los Angeles Kings, and have…

    The London Marathon is set for Sunday, and here's all you need to know to watch it. The 2015 London Marathon is almost here, and the 35th anniversary of the race promises to be an exciting one. Wilson Kipsang is hoping to defend his championship in the men's elite category, but will face stiff competition from Dennis Kimetto. Kimetto is a training partner of Kipsang's, and the two have never faced off over 26.2 miles. But Kimetto was the one who broke Kipsang's world record at Berlin last year (a record that Kipsang set the year before) and given that Kipsang is coming off setting a world…

    The London Marathon should be exciting to watch on Sunday. Here's how you can. The 35th running of the London Marathon is set for Sunday, and the field is as stacked as ever. That might be something of a cliche at this point, but there's plenty to pay attention to in both elite categories, and it should be an exciting race. Wilson Kipsang is the one to watch in the elite men's category. He's the defending champion and also won the race in 2012. But he has stiff competition this time around, notably from Dennis Kimetto, a training partner and friend. Kipsang set the world record for the course…

Bryant Jennings didn't get the win he was after on Saturday night, but a fairly competitive loss to world heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko is nothing to be ashamed of and the 30-year-old American fighter's stock probably is on the rise after his effort. Jennings (19-1, 10 KO) has a lot of potential directions to go right now and while it's hard to predict with any certainty what could be next for the Philadelphia native, let's discuss some interesting…

    Memphis took a 3-0 lead in the series thanks to their offense, surprisingly. The Grizzlies came alive on offense in Game 3 and skated to the close for a 115-109 win against Portland. Memphis now leads the series 3-0 with a chance to advance to the semifinals with a Game 4 win on Monday. Five Grizzlies scored at least 13 points, including Marc Gasol's 25. Memphis' 62 first-half points was a franchise playoff record and gave the Grizzlies a 13-point lead headed into halftime. The Grizzlies squandered the lead down the stretch, however, as Portland made a desperate run to keep fighting in this…

  • Defensive Back Free Safety Zone Reaction Drill

    Steve
    23 Apr 2015 | 6:34 pm
    The wrong zone defense will get beaten no matter how hard you practice or what drills you work on. Having a good scheme is vital. The important piece of running a successful zone is to be able to tailor it to the offense you’re playing. You want to have a couple of different sets ready for different offensive looks. The most important aspect of a good zone defense is execution. While you do want to focus on breaking on a ball, swarming the receiver and reading the QB’s eyes, the core zone defense key is staying in the zone. The biggest problem with zone defense is players abandoning their…

    Once we’ve taught our corners and our safetys a zone flip, in other words, how to transition their hips, open and run and keeping a receiver on the outside, we can take it one step further by making our zone defender in deep third coverage defend two players in their zone with this awesome defensive back reaction drill.

  • Zone Flip Technique for the Defensive Back

    Steve
    5 Apr 2015 | 7:43 pm
    The focus of the zone flip technique is to take away the inside release simply by moving your alignment in 2 yards. Zone flip means the defensive back will turn the rear of his body to the sideline, and his eyes to the inside so he can watch the receiver and the quarterback. Zone Flip Technique for the Defensive Back This is one simple zone technique that we incorporate which is similar to a cover 3 technique or a corners coverage technique. This is a very good zone coverage concept. Many time when we are playing zone, we want our corners to line approximately 2 yards inside the receiver, 6…
  • Quarterback Fundamentals: Decision Making & The Decision Drill Run

    Steve

    An important phase in the development of a quarterback is the decision making process. Too many times, coaches fail to incorporate decision making drills into their practice plan, and they expect a player to go out into a football game and react to situations that he may never have seen. Anytime you can set up a decision making process for your quarterback in practice, it will help your quarterback grow to be a better player. There are 2 phases where you can do this – a decision making drill on the run and a decision making drill on the pass. In today’s video blog post, we are…

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…

Slavisa Jokanovic’s side had moved to the brink of reaching the top-flight with a 2-0 win at Brighton earlier in the day, yet it seemed like the Championship leaders would be made to wait for promotion by the results of the chasing pack. But fourth placed Norwich conceded an equaliser in a 1-1 draw at Rotherham and third placed Middlesbrough slumped to a 4-3 defeat at Fulham after conceding a last-minute goal. That was enough to seal…

    MADRID, April 25- Neymar and Lionel Messi were on target as Barcelona produced a sensational first-half performance to take a huge step towards the La Liga title with a 2-0 win at local rivals Espanyol on Saturday. The visitors dominated from the off and two goals in eight minutes sealed the win as Neymar and Messi rounded off excellent team moves. Barca were reduced to 10 men early in the second period as Jordi Alba was given his marching orders for taking his protestations towards referee Mateu Lahoz too far, but Luis Enrique’s men held on comfortably and could have even added to…

    Remember when Florida State players were seen complaining to head coach Jimbo Fisher about Auburn stealing signals in the 2014 BCS title game? Fisher remembers and has been looking for a way to change the current system. Many believe that college football is the unofficial minor league to the NFL. The one thing that college football hasn’t adopted yet is sideline-to-helmet communication. According to Fisher, there is a very good chance that this can will be implemented very soon.   “Last year was the first time we talked about getting that implemented into college football…

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is currently suspended for the 2015 season for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy. As part of Gordon’s reinstatement last year, he couldn’t drink for 6 months. After the season was over Gordon thought the ban was lifted, but found out afterwards that the ban was year-round. DB Joe Haden was with Gordon the night he was drinking and was surprised to hear that his teammate couldn’t drink.   “Nobody was aware that he couldn’t drink,” Haden said emphatically Tuesday, speaking on the second day of the…

    No one warns you when you sign up your child for his first season of sports that it’s not going to be all fun and games. Oh, it probably starts out that way. But something happens as kids get older and the competition gets stiffer; the light hearted fun gets forgotten as many parents get discouraged with the messiness of youth sports. I’d like to suggest the three top reasons I believe sports parents get discouraged and what they can do to fight those feelings.

    7 Apr 2015 | 7:32 am
    There’s a lot of hype, misinformation, and unrealistic expectations when it comes to playing sports in college. I did my homework and found the top college recruiting myths that need to be busted. Parents and athletes, take note: Myth #1: High school coaches will get you recruited. Your athlete is the only one responsible for his recruitment. Coaches can help, certainly, and provide guidance, but it is the athlete’s job to market himself. Myth #2: Grades won’t matter if you are a really good athlete. Of course, top athletes will be pursued more vigorously, but most colleges want…

    23 Apr 2015 | 1:43 pm
    Earlier this month I wrote in a post that it appeared the NFL and even our criminal justice system seemed to value the welfare of dogs over that of women in this country. The Greg Hardy case was a perfect example of how a high profile NFL player was able to manipulate the system to not only avoid criminal prosecution, but even punishment by the National Football League. It appears that situation has been rectified by the NFL's decision to suspend Hardy, who was acquired earlier this year by the Dallas Cowboys, for ten games to begin the 2015 season.After Ray Rice received a slap on the wrist,…

    Earlier this week I listed my choices for Augusta and I had twenty-one year old Jordan Spieth at the top. After 36 holes, he holds a commanding five shot lead heading into the weekend after shooting a record 130 for the first two rounds. But if history tells us anything, it's that the tournament hasn't even started yet. In fact, the saying is that it doesn't begin until the back nine on Sunday and it remains to be seen what kind of drama we'll see tomorrow afternoon. Will someone put up a low score and challenge Spieth? Can the young phenom keep his foot on the gas and break Tiger Woods' 72…

    With Tiger Woods' announcement that he would play in the 2015 Masters tournament, the great event took on even more of a buzz than usual. Despite being off the tour for much of last season and almost all of the current one, his presence will be widely publicized, despite the fact that he has almost no chance to contend. Unless Woods has sharpened his short game from the disaster we witnessed in January and February, I think it will be difficult for him to even make the cut. But Augusta is a unique place that requires a lot of experience, generally producing an inordinate number of players who…

    Although a Duke - Wisconsin final in the NCAA Men's Basketball tournament could be viewed as an upset, it's difficult to characterize it as such when you end up with two number one seeds battling it out for the championship. Duke was impressive in an overwhelming defeat of overachieving Michigan State, while Wisconsin avenged last year's Final Four defeat to Kentucky by finally doing something no one else had done this season: Outplay the previously undefeated Wildcats down the stretch. In what turned out to be every bit as good a game as we expected, the Badgers turned a couple of breaks,…

It just speaks to his appeal that almost seven years removed from his last major championship that he garners that kind of exposure from the media during a high weekend event such as the NCAA basketball championship.The real story, however is…

    21 Mar 2015 | 1:28 am
    Offensive linemen are a very unique and special group. It is a fraternity to coach and/or play offensive line. We as a whole tend to stand up for and defend each other at all costs even if we do not know the other guy. The only thing we have to know is he is a lineman like me. This is what makes coaching the offensive line so special yet so challenging at the same time. There are not many kids in the backyards and parks of America that dream of being a center on 4th and 1 in a state championship game and getting a pancake block that keeps the drive alive.

Remember that training is the key to any endurance event and, when it comes to open water racing, careful preparation should never be far from your mind. 1.

    Taking a few laps in a pool is a wonderful way for pregnant women to exercise and stay in shape and it’s generally considered a very safe thing to do. However, before taking the plunge, do check with your doctor so that you are given the green light. If you have been swimming regularly before you became pregnant, it’s perfectly fine to continue. If you did not swim or exercise before knowing you were carrying a baby, you should take it easy at first and start slowly. It’s always best to stretch before swimming and to do a few warm up laps before giving it your all. Studies…

Obviously, for the vast majority of people, the avoidance of arguments is a general aim in life, but there are several other reasons to try to avoid incidents of swim lane rage. When training seriously for swimming competitions, such incidents of rage can be extremely stressful, generating tension within the body. This tension can then hinder a person’s swimming technique…

    23 Apr 2015 | 9:19 pm
    (AP Photo/Alex Brandon) The Washington Capitals were looking for a breakout game and in Game 5 they delivered. At 5:22 into the game, Caps’ right winger Tom Wilson and Islanders’ center Anders Lee dropped the gloves and went at it. “I wasn’t really wanting to fight that early,” Wilson said about the early scuffle with Lee. “I wanted to play a little hockey first but credit to him… he’s sticking up for his teammate.” For the fourth time in five games in the series, New York scored first. The goal came from Islanders’ center Josh Bailey just 26 seconds after the Lee versus…

    Rob Carr/Getty Images North America When you think of the best starting rotations in baseball, the first that come to mind are the five pitchers Washington can throw out on any given day. Max Scherzer, Jordan Zimmermann, Stephen Strasburg, Doug Fister and Gio Gonzalez are all top tier pitching talents who have had strong starts in the early goings of 2015. Scherzer, coming into 2015, was the hot ticket item that seemingly everyone in baseball was talking about. Once he landed in D.C., Washington jettisoned into being the favorite to win the World Series. Now $210 million and an offseason in…
  • NHL: Retaliation by Islanders Will Give Capitals Upper Hand

    Will Hirsch
    23 Apr 2015 | 1:05 pm
    During the second period of Game 4, Washington Capitals right winger Tom Wilson delivered a vicious check on New York Islanders defenseman Lubomir Visnovsky. New York players and fans took exception to the hit made by Wilson, which knocked Visnovsky out of the remainder of the Game. Visnovsky will also not play in Game 5 due to an “upper body” injury. This likely means a concussion. Since the Capitals’ 2-1 overtime victory late Tuesday night, there has been a war of words between both the Islanders and Capitals about the play. Immediately following the game, Islanders right winger Kyle…

    (Photo by Bruce Bennett/Getty Images) The Washington Capitals came into tonight’s Game Four facing what could have been a three-games-to-one series deficit with a loss or tying the series at two a piece with a win. But fortunately for the team, it was the latter that took place thanks to Washington Center Nicklas Backstrom For the first time in this series, the Capitals scored first. Backstrom cleanly won a faceoff to the right of Islanders goaltender Jaroslav Halak and defenseman John Carlson corralled the puck. Carlson then sent an innocent looking shot toward Halak, which was deflected…

    Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports The National Football League has released the 2015 schedule of games.  The Redskins have an advantage in that their bye week is in Week 8. Having it in the middle of the season works out well for them. At the same time, the Miami Dolphins and St. Louis Rams are both better teams on paper than they have been in recent years. Having them to contend with in Weeks 1 and 2 and THEN having to play their NFC Division rival New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles doesn’t bode so well for a first 2015 quarter of football… unless the things General Manager…

    Jamel Dean was one of the early enrollees of the Ohio State program so his entry into the Buckeyes was expected by many. However, OSU's medical staff did not give him the clearance he needed to join the team. Thus he was effectively disqualified and people have been asking why ever since. Some were quick to defend the medical staff's decision while others accused them of playing a numbers game. Coach Urban Meyer has finally made his comment on the matter to put the issue at rest. He said that he was definitely not happy when he heard about the DQ either but he went on to defend Ohio State in…

    Spring break offers much needed rest for everyone but getting back into the swing of things tends to be a little tricky. The Ohio State football team certainly felt the rust when they had their first practice after the break. They were in full pads Tuesday morning in Spring Camp as Coach Urban Meyer looked on in dismay. He acknowledged that the performance was not up to par with the offensive line being particularly uninspiring. Yet the coach is still upbeat on his team, even providing additional rest for guys who have seen a lot of action in previous games and practice sessions. Meyer says…

    Previously: Zak Irvin Spike Albrecht, Ricky Doyle, Aubrey Dawkins, Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman Michigan guard Caris LeVert is coming back for his senior year and suddenly the Wolverine roster looks very capable of competing in a Big Ten conference that seems to improve by the day. LeVert’s junior season never quite lived up to expectations. He showed signs of rust with his jumpshot early on and it took time for him to gel with his new teammates, and also his new role as Michigan’s primary offensive creator. He was no longer Nik Stauskas’s sidekick, instead he was called upon to…

    Michigan’s roster is starting to come into focus with the news that Caris LeVert will be returning for his senior season and big man Austin Davis will be a Wolverine. The next question is: what does that mean for Michigan’s recruiting going forward? It’s no secret that Michigan is starting to work with a crowded scholarship situation, but don’t expect the Wolverines to be done recruiting any time soon. John Beilein has been out on the road recruiting class of 2015 and 2016 prospects over the last few weeks – even with the understanding that LeVert was leaning toward returning to…

    20 Apr 2015 | 4:00 am
    When your daughter makes a mistake, and doesn’t respond the way you think she should, and you feel frustrated and upset and annoyed and ready to give her a piece of your mind, STOP. What if you were certain that, despite this mistake, she would be successful anyway?  What if you knew, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that your daughter would learn and grow and get better and stronger because of this experience?   What if you accepted this “bad” moment as that, just a moment. One that would not completely derail her success, but simply become part of the journey. Would…

    I totally agree with Coach George Raveling here… Changing your mind is one of the best ways to find out if you still have one. Too many people get stuck thinking you “can’t” make different choices after you’ve already made one. Or that you “have to stick with it” because you made a particular choice. So many of choices we turn into “forever” choices are not actually forever choices. You CAN make another, different choice if something’s not working! You CAN change your mind. I’ve changed my mind many times. Most long time…

    Following a storming performance in the second leg of the quarter-finals against Porto, Bayern Munich are now the hot favorites to claim the European Champions League title. Despite entering the second match against Portugal’s leading side needing to score at least two goals to progress to the club’s fourth consecutive semi-final, Bayern maintained composure throughout the match to walk away 6-1 victors.

    It is true that some of basketball players seem to have an innate talent for this type of game: they have the ideal height and the right skills that allow playing basketball apparently without paying too much effort into this. It comes only natural for them to be considered good players out there on the court, but while this happens during high school, when their body is still young and energetic, this talent might easily wear off if not properly educated and trained. This is why many of them fail to reach that level of being good players to be co-opted for colleges' basketball teams. Read…

    There is much debate on the blogosphere about whether Syracuse should restore #44.  Many folks think it should be restored for recruiting, while others advocate giving it to a deserving running back upperclassman.  And then there are others who agree with the decision to retire the number entirely, further noting that high-prestige recruits that might have worn the number and failed miserably.  The Confidential proposes a different system, such as that used by Ole Miss with its Chucky Mullins Courage Award.  Each year, Ole Miss awards #38 to a deserving player: The award, sponsored by Phi…

    (Photo: Bridget Samuels) The Red Wings lead the Lightning two games to one. They can lose every remaining road game and still win the series. But if the Red Wings advance, “winning” won’t be the right word. The Lightning are too fast for the Red Wings. They’re just as deep offensively and have a better-skilled defense corps. They’ve outshot Detroit in every game thus far. The Red Wings took 37.6 percent of the total shots through the first three games, the lowest amount of any team in any playoff series.

All you need is the time period from March 18 to now. We’re less than two weeks away from the draft. The picture should be clear. Or at least clearer. There should be a…

    (Nicole Yeary) Last year the Red Wings had an excuse. They were injured all year. Success became keeping the playoff streak alive. Everyone knew the Bruins were bigger and better. Fans’ hope for a series win rested solely on reputation: the Red Wings tend to win playoff series. Losing to Boston brought no surprise. The year before, the Red Wings won a playoff series, then lost to the eventual Stanley Cup champions. Well they choked it away. Up 3-1 in the series, Detroit let Chicago force a Game 7, and then allowed a Brent Seabrook overtime goal to win it. Detroit had a Cup run in them,…

    (Adam Glanzman) Red Wings fans have panicked for the last two and a half months. They had their reasons. Detroit went from fighting for home ice advantage in the first round of the playoffs to fighting to get into the playoffs, and all those battles came just months after the Red Wings were one of the top three teams in the league. The playoffs are here now. Detroit is in. But wide-eyed hope morphed into closed-eyed wincing. The Red Wings haven’t been good for three months. In their last 11 games of the season they posted a 4-4-3 record, good for 11 points. That’s the same pace…

The beer that I had there was the 2 a.m. bike ride, a sessionable coffee stout, which ended up making for the best pairing out of over a dozen beers that I tried. It was only a matter of time until I traveled the 10 minutes or so from my apartment to check out their brewery in North Park, a trendy, up-and-coming neighborhood in San Diego which is increasingly pumping out great beer, great food, and great places to serve it.

    La Sirène Brewing is pretty unique with a focus on classic Belgian and French Farmhouse styles ales, based in Melbourne Australia. When I think of Australian beer I foolishly think Foster’s, not “small batches of unfiltered and unpasteurised beer, retaining the greatest amount of flavour and character…our bottled beers are naturally conditioned by refermentation and extended maturation in the bottle.” I’ve never been to Australia or had any Australian craft beer, so I can’t speak to the quality of La Sirène’s brews.

    22 Apr 2015 | 11:33 am
    The NFL released it’s schedule for the 2015 season last night and we finally get to see the dates and order of every game the Washington Redskins will play in their upcoming season. They will open with two home games against non-division opponents, follow that with two games against division opponents and then don’t play another division opponent for nine weeks. They have the bye week in almost the exact middle of the season and they will finish the season against the Dallas Cowboys for the third time in four seasons. In 2012, that game ended in a Skins victory and a division…

    BSRadmin
    13 Apr 2015 | 10:20 am
    The NHL playoffs begin this Wednesday and with that in mind it is time to look at one thing in each match up that will go a long way to determining who advances. Western Conference Anaheim Ducks vs Winnipeg Jets- The Ducks PP vs the Jets PK. will be the ultimate factor in this series as the Jets have been shorthanded the most times in the NHL this season at 308 times and the Ducks ranked 28th on the power play only ahead of Buffalo and Colorado. If the Ducks powerplay doesn’t improve, this series could produce a big first round upset. St.Louis Blues vs Minnesota Wild- Blues Offense vs…

    The NHL regular season is winding down with most teams having two games left. With most of the playoff spots secured and the Presidents trophy locked up (Congrats to the Rangers). There are still a couple teams battling for those last couple of playoff spots. Eastern Conference: Four of the Eight teams have clinched already (NYR,Mon,TB, and Wash) and it leaves five teams Det,Bos,Pitt,Ott, and the Islanders battling for the other four spots.

  • AP Cowboy Bound?

    BSRadmin
    1 Apr 2015 | 2:52 pm
    Earlier today, Dallas Cowboy QB Tony Romo restructured his contract and freed up nearly 13 million in cap space for the Cowboys. This move looks odd if you think Dallas is done in free agency for a couple reasons: First, Dallas had this restructure option available during the Demarco Murray contract talks and didn’t do it. Second, with most major free agents gone, Dallas couldn’t spend the cap space available – and with Romo’s deal now back loaded it seems there window is a win now mode. All of this is odd unless you consider the following Minnesota running back Adrian…

    Holographic sights are quite common when it comes to shooting. But have you ever taken the pains to know how it works. There are several benefits if you have the knowledge about its working. Shooters and hunters are at times confused regarding the choice of the optic. Besides the riflescopes, if you are planning to buy something else then holographic or red dot sights are your options.

    Two of the most popular sighing mechanism for weapons include the holographic sights and red dot sights. In this regard, Eotech and Aimpoint are often pitted against each other. Although Eotech holographic sights are more but Eotech red dot sights are not uncommon either. As far as the differences between the two are not readily identifiable by just a simple side by side inspection and comparison.Here are some of the factors on which these two can be compared.

    The bird fests have already begun and many people are actually looking for a pair of binoculars that are specially designed for the bird watchers. It is understandable that while identifying and watching the birds, birders require a good binocular. Beyond this, they also need patience, passion and the capability to maintain a large mental catalog. The birding binoculars have a nest of features and specifications. But one of the main features is their ability to gather light. This is important as it allows you to observe the birds even at low light conditions. If you are keen to observe the…

    Kimber’s Mountain Line rifles have made quite an impressive impact on the users. The reviews have been positive from all quarters. As a part of the tactical gear for mountains the weight of the mountain line rifles are perfect. For those who will be carrying it as a hunting gear, the performance is powerful too. However, there are various models in this line. Kimber Adirondack .308 The new Kimber Adirondack rifle weighs about 4 pounds, 13 ounces, and carries an 18-inch barrel, which makes it fast and easily maneuvered in a stand or when still-hunting thick cover.

    The 5-day Punchestown Festival starts on Tuesday 28th April, and this year promises to be an absolute humdinger with many of this year’s Willie Mullins trained Cheltenham Festival winners looking to double-up in what is the highlight of the Irish National Hunt calendar. The Festival is not all about the horses though and, if you ever get the chance, you should add a visit to your bucket list. The atmosphere is incredible, with live entertainment, family fun, food and a few million pints of Guinness all adding to electric ambience. There’s no official dress code at the Punchestown…
  • Horse Racing Tips – Bet365 Gold Cup Preview

    24 Apr 2015 | 11:53 pm
    There are 20 runners in a fascinating renewal of the Bet365 Gold Cup (Sandown 3.50) which is run over a trip of 29 furlongs and 24 fences. The age over the last ten years hasn’t seemed significant; though all 10 winners were aged between 7 and 11. Weight carried looks statistically a little more important with 7 of those 10 winners carrying 10-13 or less, whilst the other three carried 11-0, 11-5 and 11-12. Phillip Hobbs and Richard Johnson have teamed up to win it twice in the last decade, and are the only jockey and trainer to have won it more than once in that time. Paul Nicholls has 3…

    It’s not far from last gap saloon at both the top and bottom of the Premier League table this week as Arsenal know only victory over Chelsea will keep their already exceedingly slim hopes of winning the title alive. Meanwhile, in the relegation dogfight, Burnley host Leicester in a match that may well seal the fate of either side if they lose. Arsenal vs Chelsea If Arsenal had played as well all season as they have done in recent weeks then this may really be a clash of the titans. However, the reality is that even if Arsenal win they’ll struggle to claw back another 7 points over the…
  • Golf Betting Tips: Zurich Classic Preview

    Tim
    22 Apr 2015 | 1:23 am
    The Zurich Classic is a tournament that has produced 13 first-time PGA Tour winners in its last 17 renewals; suggesting it’s not a week for backing any of the well-known stars in the line-up. That means it seems wise to discard the claims of favourite Dustin Johnson, as well as Justin Rose, Jason Day, Ricky Fowler and Keegan Bradley. We all know they’re all capable of winning this week but, at the odds, I’ll have to pass. One player I’ll have to have on my side is Morgan Hoffman. This week is likely to be all about birdies, and the 25-year-old has demonstrated on more than one…

Then, with the dust settling on this paramount event, all punting eyes turned to the Grand National. The showcase event is undoubtedly the biggest on the National Hunt’s calendar. Horse racing betting odds were already being examined, debated and weighed up across the country by both regular punters and casual bettors alike. Of course, picking a Grand National winner has never been an exact science. But when has horse race betting ever been…

(AP Photo/Pat Sullivan) Astros second baseman Jose Altuve only stands at five-foot-six, but he seems like a much larger presence anytime he steps into the box against the Athletics. Coming into Saturday’s game, Altuve had a hit in 27 consecutive games against the A’s. He wasted no time extending that streak to 28 games, lining Kendall Graveman’s first pitch of the afternoon into center field for a single.

(Mandatory Credit: ESPN/AP Photo/Nick Wass) The Washington Nationals have high expectations for the 2015-2016 season. So far, Washington hasn’t been able to live up to those expectations, partly due to the lack of offensive production. As a team Washington is doing well not to strikeout, what they are not doing well is getting on base.

  • The Scouts And Stats Agree: Kris Bryant Is Going To Be Dope

    Rob Arthur
    21 Apr 2015 | 4:39 am
    Even the messiah can strike out three times on his first day in the majors. Last Friday, Kris Bryant, the Cubs’ anointed savior, was called up from the minors after weeks of debate about whether he should’ve just started the season in the majors. There is an aura of myth to Bryant’s arrival, as though the stars have aligned to offer the Cubs a chance to fulfill a prophecy. Yet Bryant is still an untested prospect, and, as Cubs fans know too well, even the best prospects can fail to live up to expectations.But Bryant really is special — he’s the rare prospect that has both scouts…

  • The Rays’ Radical Reliever Experiment

    Rob Arthur
    17 Apr 2015 | 3:00 am
    It’s not easy to be the Tampa Bay Rays these days. Long renowned as a sabermetrically-advanced team, the Rays have seen their strategies copied, imitated and stolen by other teams in search of a tactical edge. That’s why I’m watching the Rays closely this season. One of the most intriguing storylines of the 2015 season is how the Rays and other small-market teams cope with a league that’s increasingly analytics-savvy. It used to be that sabermetrics were the way small-market teams gained an edge over the competition. But now that analytics is becoming second nature in nearly every…

    16 Apr 2015 | 5:39 am
    Before the 2015 season started last week, the Boston Red Sox were projected by both Fangraphs and Baseball Prospectus to win nearly 90 games this season, with the best expected record in the American League East according to each method.At a glance, that wasn’t incredibly notable. After all, Boston had won 90 or more games in 11 of the 17 seasons leading up to 2015. But the Red Sox are coming off a 91-loss, last-place season that ranked as one of the worst in franchise history. Since Major League Baseball expanded its schedule to 162 games in 1962, only 18 teams have transitioned from…

    The Dirtiest Picks on the Internet

  • NBA Playoffs Round One

    Bobby Sugar

    LAC (+5) vs SASDefinitely not ready to spot the Spurs five, when the only difference in the last game was Blake Griffin turning the ball over up two with eight seconds left. It was ugly sure, but it doesn't tell the story of this series. Spurs are way too banged up to be able to handle a pissed off Clippers team.HOU vs DAL (+2)We always have to go with the picks that seem a little too good to be true, and this is definitely one of those lines. Houston has dominated every facet of this series so it was pretty shocking to see H town only favored by 2 here right? Then we realized that Rondo has…

They are the most boring story in the NBA, no one on their team is good and their owner literally does not care about the franchise. Tonight I am prepared to roll the Nets and nine points because of the mounting injury issues with the Hawks. Al Horford has a dislocated pinky, Thabo Sefolosha was shot by racist police and Paul Millsap's shoulder is super fucked up. This spells disaster for the feel-good story Hawks as Joe Johnson and D-Will come through with their only good game of the series before…

    25 Apr 2015 | 6:08 am
    Few coaches have been quite so unanimously disliked in the media. Let me clarify. I’m sure Scott Brooks is a fine man, but the opinion of most is that he is a sub-par head coach. The Oklahoma City Thunder and General Manager Sam Presti finally pulled the trigger on firing their long embattled head coach on Wednesday, April 22. The only coach, except for the man Brooks replaced in their first Oklahoma season in P.J. Carlesimo, that the Thunder have ever known. Was it the right move? There’s plenty of stats that make that a tough call off the bat. In ESPN’s article on his…
  • Josh Hamilton: A Texas Ranger Once Again

    Jack Conness
    25 Apr 2015 | 5:42 am
    It has been a very tough couple of years for Josh Hamilton in Los Angeles. After signing a 5-year, $125 million contract, nothing has gone right for the left-handed hitter. Since hitting .285 with 43 HR and 128 RBI in his last season in Texas, Hamilton has only hit .255 with 31 HR and 123 RBI with the Angels in two seasons. IN 2014, he missed almost half the season due to injury and when he finally arrived in time for the playoffs, he went hitless in 13 at-bats. When you didn’t think it could get worse, it did. Hamilton had offseason surgery on his shoulder which required him to miss…
  • NBA Playoffs Preview: Los Angeles Clippers vs. San Antonio Spurs

    19 Apr 2015 | 9:31 am
    Most people assumed that the Western Conference Playoff teams were set at the beginning of the year. There could be some mild changes to the seeding, but the eight teams would be the same. However, with the Oklahoma City Thunder’s injuries and some mid-season lulls for several teams, the playoffs became a grab bag at the end of the season. Teams were flipping from fifth and sixth to second and third constantly over the last week of the season. In the end, one of the most consistent, yet disliked teams, the Los Angeles Clippers took the third seed. Unfortunately for Chris Paul and Blake…
  • NBA Playoffs Preview: Atlanta Hawks vs. Brooklyn Nets

    Riley Young
    19 Apr 2015 | 8:38 am
    Most surprising vs. Most disappointing? I don’t think you can dispute that the Atlanta Hawks were the most surprising team of the 2014-15 regular season. Going from sub-.500 and barely making the playoffs in a weak Eastern Conference, to winning over 70% of your games against the Western Conference (22 out of 30) in route to the club’s first ever 60-win season is quite the turn around. For the Brooklyn Nets, you could argue that Brook Lopez’s injury led to a sub-par performance for a majority of the year and therefore their record is not a true reflection of their success. However, I…
  • NBA Playoffs Preview: Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Boston Celtics

    Riley Young
    19 Apr 2015 | 8:26 am
    Remember the older series between LeBron James and the Boston Celtics’ Big Three of Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, and Ray Allen (and Rondo?)? The two great ones with LeBron and the Cleveland Cavaliers that saw the Celtics victorious and then LeBron’s revamped Miami Heat finally get the King past his vaunted green nemeses? I hear you can watch these on NBA rewind. Don’t expect to see the same thing this postseason. Isaiah Thomas, Evan Turner, and Jared Sullinger just don’t sound as intimidating of a three sure fire Hall of Famers. It’s an interesting matchup, though, as the regular…

  • What To Call UB: SUNY Buffalo's Identity Crisis

    Douglas Hannon
    23 Apr 2015 | 5:27 am
    The UB basketball team’s NCAA berth last month gave UB athletics some nice local limelight.  But it may have also been the first exposure many casual Buffalo Sports fans have had to the change in UB’s athletic branding that started two years ago.  For those who don’t know, I’ll bring you briefly up to speed.  For most of its history, UB athletic uniforms have been branded with “UB.”  Or, barring that, “Buffalo.”  But, as many noticed when UB took the floor for the NCAA tournament, the current uniforms appear to say just “New York.”  What…

      Last nights dustup between the Chicago White Sox and the Kansas City Royals seemed to be just another chapter in the recent saga that has been playing in Kansas City. They have clashed with the Angels and the Athletics previously, most notably Brett Lawrie. Without casting blame or picking sides, one thing is becoming abundantly clear. Teams are taking exception to the Royals. Maybe its the excessive celebration that had been reported. Teams often siding with old school mentality feel the game of baseball is a gentlemans game, and the time and place for showmanship and celebrating is…

The Red Devils suffered a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Chelsea last weekend, despite having over 70% of the possession. The loss ended a four-game winning run, which had seen them propel into the top four, but victory against the Toffees would put them ahead of Arsenal, if only just for a few hours. United are missing three of their key defensive players, with Marcos Rojo, Phil Jones and Michael Carrick, while Daley Blind could return from, following an ankle injury. As for…

The Saints were favourites for relegation at the start of the season after a mass clear-out in the summer, but Ronald Koeman has done a great job and is on course to win the coveted Manager of the Year award.

    Cookie took profit on both last weekend and this week’s midweek fixtures in the Championship, and he’s convinced about a few games with big plays this weekend. Cookie has a bigger stake available this weekend due to midweek winners - so is staking approx £12,000 this weekendWatford v Bournemouth I’ve been quite sweet about the chances of Bournemouth in their last two games, and they have let me down on both occasions, and this is very much a case of twice bitten thrice shy for me. Watford are without Troy Deeney and Fernando Foresieri, so are missing options up front (those two…

    Last weekend’s results saw over a 10% profit on advised stakes in the Premier League and with the season running well into profit, what does Cookie have up his sleeve this week for you lucky punters?QPR v Stoke Whilst I understand each team has a quota that live television has to meet, it does seem that rather a lot of them are coming early in the season. And this weekend’s early live match in the premier league brings us a stinker in QPR vs Stoke. There isn’t much to get excited about here, and especially if you are a QPR fan, they have been conceding goals in chunks and…

  • D2 Football Players in the NFL

    Creighton Rabs
    24 Apr 2015 | 12:55 pm
    With the NFL Draft around the corner, it’s worth noting that there are 120 D2 football players in the NFL (as of April 23, 2015). It’s interesting to see not only which conferences and schools are represented, but also to see which NFL teams have the most D2 products on their rosters. (Note: the 120 players include in six players from schools which transitioned to D1 but were D2 schools during those players’ collegiate careers and three players from D2 programs which have since been discontinued.)Which D2 conference boasts the most NFL players?The Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic…

  • Predicting Landing Spots for the Top Uncommitted 2015 Recruits

    Andrew Doughty
    21 Apr 2015 | 8:08 am
    It would be a dramatic understatement to say that the landscape of college basketball recruiting has drastically changed over the last decade, particularly over the last few years. From the one-and-done rule to the sudden trend of diminishing letters of intent, it is harder than ever to predict landing spots for the most sought-after prep stars and 2015 is no exception. We are only weeks away from the conclusion of the 2014-15 academic year and loads of notable recruits have yet to pick their college destination, including three elite prospects in Jaylen Brown, Cheick Diallo and Malik…

    Andrew Doughty
    20 Apr 2015 | 7:36 am
    Greg Oden. Kevin Durant. Brandan Wright. Thaddeus Young. Those four players and numerous other high school seniors from the 2006 class could easily have swapped their college textbooks for wads of NBA cash if the league did not make a change to their eligibility requirements prior to the 2006 NBA Draft. Either Oden or Durant probably would have been selected by the Toronto Raptors with the No. 1 overall pick in that year’s draft. The Raptors would instead pick Andrea Bargnani.We don’t appear headed back to that prep-NBA route, at least not in the near future, but the never-ending…

  • Five things to watch out for – Arsenal vs Chelsea

    Datti Jinkiri
    24 Apr 2015 | 8:30 am
    Red versus Blue. North London versus West London. Arsene Wenger versus Jose Mourinho. On Sunday afternoon, Chelsea will travel to the Emirates Stadium to play Arsenal in the biggest game of the season. Both teams near the final stretch of the Premier League season. A win for either team could shift the make up of the top four spots in the league. Chelsea are currently in first place with an impressive 76 points. Even more impressive is the fact that the team has only lost twice during the entire season. They have put themselves in a prime position with a 1-0 home win over Manchester United…

Chelsea look set to win the Premier League, but the battle at the other end of the table is developing nicely for the neutral. For fans of the teams in the thick of it, this will be the most nerve-wracking month of your life.

    Alexis Sanchez has taken the Premier League by storm in his first season at the Emirates. The Chile international has been key for Arsene Wenger’s men in their bid to win the most coveted title in England. Despite being second in the table currently, Arsenal stand an outside chance of becoming champions. However, they are 10 points off the first spot with five weeks left in the season. The Gunners are also in the finals of the FA Cup after beating Championship side Reading 2-1 after extra time at Wembley stadium after the game ended 1-1 at 90 minutes.

  • So why is a live match day experience so compelling?

    Steven McBain
    23 Apr 2015 | 1:23 am
    I have to confess to being somewhat of a ‘live sport’ junky. The past weekend I flew 13 hours on Friday night arriving in London to watch Chelsea play Manchester United. On Sunday evening I flew 13 hours home again. Indulgent, fanatical or just plain mad? I enjoy a length and breadth of different sports and find most of them to be far more enjoyable in person than on TV. Even the ones where the viewing experience is far less. Formula One and cricket are just two examples where the ‘live’ experience makes actually watching the action in any meaningful way impossible.
  • Why Eden Hazard should be named Player of the Year

    Kenneth Nordgard
    21 Apr 2015 | 6:18 am
    The nominations for Player of the Season Award are in, and among them is Chelsea’s Eden Hazard. Having made an impact consistently all season, it’s no surprise his name has been included yet again. After being runner-up last year when Luiz Suarez won the award, Hazard will surely welcome both nomination and the opportunity to win it with open arms. Hazard is no stranger to individual awards though, having won the PFA Young Player of the Year in the last campaign, and also winning both Young Player of the Year and Player of the Year in the French Ligue 1 before joining Chelsea in 2012.

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…

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.

Now arguably the most important piece of gear that a hiker owns is their footwear and each person has their own different personal preferences to the type of footwear that they use, mine being the low trainer type as opposed to more rigid hiking boots, that for some reason I find stiffen my ankles too much and therefore become uncomfortable. Recently I have undertaken a year long trip in which I will be visiting many countries such as Australia and New…

    A mid layer or second layer piece of apparel is arguably the most versatile and useful piece of clothing that is used whilst pursuing sport in the mountain environment, whether hiking, climbing or skiing a good mid layer will keep you warm and comfortable throughout the day, all the way from peak to pub. Now when it comes to gear I’ll have to admit I’m a bit of a geek, always searching out the latest and greatest new items to test whilst I am out in the mountains. Having owned a lot of different types of mid layers I have seen my fair share of the good the bad and the great, and…

    17 Apr 2015 | 6:39 am
    An essential part of every cyclist’s wardrobe is a good pair of overshoes online, because there’s nothing worse than cold extremities when you’re out on your bike. We wear gloves when it’s cold so it makes sense to keep your feet warm too. Put simply, overshoes are great. The right ones will not only keep your feet warm and dry, they’ll protect your expensive cycling shoes from all the dirt that washes up off the road surface when it rains. This week I’ve been using our own B’Twin 300 overshoes and with the weather we’ve had up here I can say they’ve definitely been put to…

    Jim Racalto It looks like the long-running feud between former best friends 50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather has finally come to an end. Months after publicly taunting and criticizing one another, the pair met in Las Vegas Wednesday night to bury the hatchet. 50 had accused Floyd of not being able to read, while Mayweather repeatedly called 50 “irrelevant.” They took a photo together, and 50 captioned it in a way that makes it seem the beef is over and that he’s back in Floyd’s corner as the biggest fight of his career approaches – a May 2nd showdown with Manny…

    Jason Whitney Dallas Mavericks polarizing owner Mark Cuban has had multiple run-ins with the NBA hierarchy over the Association’s officiating since becoming owner back in January of 2000. Cuban is undoubtedly the king of NBA fines, but it appears he had at least one legitimate complaint that could have altered the way the 2006-07 season ended. Back during the 2006-07 season, the Mavericks were coming off a controversial NBA Finals against the Miami Heat in which Dwyane Wade lived at the free throw line. Following losing to the Heat, the next season the Mavericks won a season best 67…

    Jason Whitney The NBA playoff race has virtually begun, with only two days left in the NBA’s regular season. Some of the league’s elite are fighting for the right to host playoff games, not only for decisive matchups. Division crowns or seeding do not determine home-court advantage, only the record does. Let’s take a look at the NBA odds for the 2015 playoffs. The Pelicans are building their strength around their All-Star forward, Davis. Thanks in great measure to Davis’ winning, after winning three of four games against the Thunder, the Pelicans hold the…

      Pep Guardiola’s men went into their second leg quarter-final at the Allianz Arena with a mammoth task; to overturn a 3-1 deficit in order to progress. It was a Herculic task, given the might and heart Porto put in back home. But by half time, they were eons ahead of their Portuguese counterparts, having unleashed a devastating 45 minutes of football to lead 5-0 at home. Any doubts of an impossible task for the German champions was washed wash as they played scintillating football, overturning the seemingly impossible scoreline. “We just witnessed something miraculous,” said…

      August 2014 and the season commenced for United. By the end of the summer transfer market, six new faces had graced Old Trafford; Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo, Daley Blind, Angel Di Maria, Ander Herrera and Radamel Falcao. All the signings brought in a wave of expectations, however, only three have blossomed respectably. But more than the summer signings, it is the resurrection of the likes of Phil Jones, Chris Smalling Ashley Young, Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini that have propelled United to where they are; sitting in third place, a point behind second-placed Arsenal and four points ahead…

      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…

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…

    Every year is different when it comes to the NFL draft but like any other event, there are always trends that seem to appear.  So what can be discovered regarding the 7th overall pick, which the Chicago Bears currently hold? Being the top 10 is a definite plus but like any pick it guarantees nothing.  Still, does recent history offer any hope or optimism for fans?  The results over the past ten draft were more than a little surprising.

    25 Apr 2015 | 5:35 pm
    Game four between the Chicago Bulls and the Milwaukee Bucks was poorly played throughout, but the final two minutes were as exciting as you’ll see in the NBA Playoffs. Chicago was able to fight back and tie the game at 90 after trailing by six with less than 1:30 left to play in the fourth quarter. The Bulls had a chance to win the game with a last second shot, but Derrick Rose turned over the ball and Jason Kidd was able to call a timeout with 1.3 seconds left to play. They went right after Rose on the inbounds pass, using his own aggressiveness against him. Jerryd Bayless’…

    Game four between the Chicago Bulls and the Milwaukee Bucks has been looking a lot like game two at the United Center. There have already been two flagrant fouls and three technical fouls called in the first half. It’s also been a very sloppy opening half for the Bulls. There was one great moment for Chicago and that came at the end of the first quarter. O.J. Mayo tried to beat the game clock with a layup, but Jimmy Butler hustled back and blocked it, embarrassing Mayo. The Bulls led 23-19 after one, but the second quarter was similar to the second during game three. The Bucks…

The Bulls needed a win to put a stranglehold on the series, and they did just that thanks to a great performance by their star Derrick Rose. Rose put on a show in Milwaukee, he finished 12-of-23 from the field and 5-of-9 from 3-point range, adding eight assists and five rebounds. It was Rose’s first time scoring 34 points since doing so in 2012 against the Philadelphia 76ers. It was also Rose’s first time scoring 34 points in a postseason game…

Some 20 years later, I was fortunate enough to see the Chicago Cubs take on the San Diego Padres this past weekend. The excitement I felt seeing Wrigley from the subway was hard to explain. However, I may have chosen a terrible time to form an opinion on this historic ballpark. There was a ton of construction going on, especially in the famous bleacher area.

     The dynamic of what makes a great Minor League ballpark is a little different from what makes a great Major League ballpark. Minor League ballparks typically don't come with all of the bells and whistles that the Major League venues have. If you ask most people, history is what makes a ballpark - Fenway Park (Boston Red Sox) and Wrigley Field (Chicago Cubs) are two of the most iconic stadiums in Major League Baseball. They're also the two oldest.  With a smaller demand, smaller payroll and smaller talent pool in smaller cities, the Minor Leagues do the best with the resources they do have.

  • NBA News: Kawhi Leonard to receive a max-deal from the San Antonio Spurs

    Yordan Ivanov
    25 Apr 2015 | 4:09 pm
    Basketball, NBA News: There have been some speculations whether the San Antonio Spurs will offer Kawhi Leonard a max deal this summer, but recently it has been reported that the franchise is ready to give the player what he expects. It seems that Leonard is pretty happy in a Spur uniform, and even though he is going to become a free-agent after the end of the current campaign, I don’t think he will leave his current team. There have been a number of reports recently, and all of them state that the player will remain where he is. “For now, there’s no scenario where Leonard plans to…

The latest speculations in the world of football are once again concentrated around Real Madrid. There have been several reports that the Whites are monitoring Chelsea’s star, Eden Hazard, and the latest interview that Zinedine Zidane gave strength to the rumors.

    25 Apr 2015 | 10:46 am
    LA Liga Match Preview With Barcelona winning away from home at Espanyol, Real Madrid have no choice but to defeat the mid-table side if they want to keep their push for LA Liga title intact. Even though they are lagging Barcelona with 5 points with a game in hand, it will be fixtures like these that would decide their fate in LA Liga this season. Thus, while they are the reigning European Champions and are again back in the Semi-finals of Champions League, it would be 3 years this May since the last time Real Madrid lifted a LA Liga title. Real Madrid have lost 4 of their last 8 away games in…

    Barclays Premier League Match Preview Against a team that hasn’t allowed the Red devils to take all 3-points at its home turf for the last 2 seasons, this fixture couldn’t have come at a better time for Manchester United. Although trips to Merseyside are always a heart-and-mouth stuff for Manchester United, their recent form takes them as favorites to this particular fixture. And with Liverpool dropping points once again away to Tony Pulis’s West Brom, a win for Manchester United at the Goodison Park would all but guarantee their place in the top 4.

    The NBA draft used to be the place where an NBA team could draft a franchise player. Those days are all but over; especially this year. This year’s draft class features some prominent big men. Jahlil Okafor, Karl-Anthony Towns and Frank Kaminsky, all look to be lottery picks; with Okafor and Towns projected to be the top 2 picks in the upcoming draft. There’s only one problem. Big men don’t win championships anymore. You can count the amount of elite big men on one hand; Boogie Cousins, Anthony Davis, Marc Gasol, Al Jefferson and a healthy Dwight Howard.

      It’s hard to argue that the best basketball player in the world is someone named other than LeBron James. In fact, it’s not even really debatable. He’s bigger, stronger and faster than everyone, and he can guard every position; he’s a freak of nature. We diminish his video game numbers because it’s what we’ve come to expect; it’s his norm. He’s a victim of his own success. We need to remember that LeBron James is a once in a lifetime type of player; like Nike says, “we’re all just witnesses.” With all that being…

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…

    23 Apr 2015 | 5:44 am
    In February, it was reported that Mark Teixeira went on a "gluten free, sugar free and dairy free" diet in the off-season in order to improve his energy and help ward off injuries.  Teixeira stated that he has lost 13 pounds of fat and gained 15 pounds of muscle since going on the diet.  As far as baseball goes, Teixeira would like to hit at least 30 home runs and drive in 100+ RBI.  So far, so good.While Teixeira's average isn't the greatest at .204, he has an on-base percentage of .333 and is slugging .592.  He leads the team with 5 home runs and 13 RBI.  Teixeira…

    It was a wild first inning in Detroit tonight as the Yankees and Tigers combined for 10 runs, 7 hits, 6 walks and 87 pitches.  The first inning lasted 50 minutes.  So much for the pace of game rules.David Price began the first by hitting Jacoby Ellsbury followed by a Chris Young single to center field.  With two men on, Price walked Mark Teixeira to load the bases.  Brian McCann singled on a fly ball to left field scoring Ellsbury to make the score 1-0 Yankees.  Price struck out Carlos Beltran then allowed a single from Chase Headley that drove in Young to make it…

    It has become painfully obvious that there needs to be a change in right field for the Yankees.  Carlos Beltran is no longer capable of handling the demands that come with being an outfielder.  He no longer possesses the speed, agility, awareness and hitting ability necessary to be an effective starting outfielder.  This is why Jacoby Ellsbury has been cheating towards right field so he can cover for Beltran.  The Yankees cannot afford to give away easy outs, and while Beltran isn't the only player guilty of that in the lineup, he is the easiest to replace at the…

Marlon Samuels’s mock salute to Ben Stokes late in the day shows the hard and competitive nature of this test series. It has led to talk that the business of sledging has gone too far. It showed that West Indies were giving as good, as they got. Stokes is not one to shy away from a battle on the cricket field and the reaction of Samuels is testament to that.

A season where the field has been turned on its head. Red Bull are suddenly looking very much a midfield team, McLaren are down the bottom, Ferrari are back up the front, and we’ve had concussion conspiracy theories, team orders, and a 17 year old Dutch-Belgian star has captivated the fans… And we’ve not even reached Europe…
