    On Labor Day, Cole Hamels and the Philadelphia bullpen spread the workload on a no-hitter. Hamels and three Phillies relievers combined on the season's fourth no-hitter, blanking the Atlanta Braves 7-0 Monday and giving a last-place team a rare reason to celebrate. It was all the more unusual in that Hamels left the game with his bid intact after six innings. Relievers Jake Diekman, Ken Giles and closer Jonathan Papelbon each pitched a perfect inning to finish off the gem.

Muschamp could have kept their suspensions in place against Eastern Michigan or said they would be suspended against Idaho if the game is rescheduled.

    As we begin the month of September, be forewarned that this is going to be a schizophrenic month: Sept 5 is “Be Late For Something Day”. I know some people who celebrate this day 365 days a year; they avoid punctuality like poison ivy. Sept 6 is “Fight Procrastination Day”. These celebrants need to work with the chronically tardy folks mentioned above to create a weeklong festival. Ten years ago, if anyone had suggested to me that this was going to happen, I would have said he/she was smoking some really high quality “stuff”. However, consider the reports that say Chung-an…

    I am on record here saying that the 2-game suspension given to Ray Rice after his “domestic violence event” was meager. I said the NFL was tone-deaf sending one of its VPs on ESPN Radio to declare that the NFL had taken a tough stance with regard to domestic violence. I said that Ravens’ fans were out of line cheering for Rice when he first stepped onto a practice field. I mention all of that because I want to be clear where I stand with regard to that issue. The only reason I need to mention this again is in the wake of the season-long suspension for Cleveland Browns WR, Josh Gordon.

    After his dismissal from the Cincinnati Bengals, BenJarvis Green-Ellis isn’t sure what’s next? Green-Ellis is known for his hard running style but recently has declined since his first season with the Bengals when he averaged 3.9 yards per carry. In his second season with the Bengals, he only averaged 3.4 yards per carry, but the stats do not tell the whole story. He did not look like the same back the entire season. Could this just come from the arrival of up and coming back Giovani Bernard?…

It was not Teddy Bridgewater, nor Johnny Manziel or Derek Carr. It was a junior out of Central Florida that caught my eye, Blake Bortles. This, ladies and gentleman, should be the starting QB for the Jacksonville Jaguars. As I watched YouTube video of Blake Bortles, I could see something special.…

These are the NFL players poised for a breakout season in 2014.

  • Four Phillies Pitchers Toss 1st Combined No-Hitter in Franchise History

    thebiglead2013
    1 Sep 2014 | 1:48 pm
    The first 11 no-hitters in Philadelphia Phillies franchise history were all singular efforts, but the 12th one – a 7-0 win over the Braves on Labor Day – was the first time multiple pitchers got in on the act. Cole Hamels went six innings, and three relievers each tossed a hitless inning, with Jonathan Papelbon finishing the game in the 9th. It’s definitely the highlight of another forgettable season in Philadelphia. The Phillies (63-74) are in the basement of the NL East again, and figure to be there next year, too. The Braves are in the NL Wild Card hunt, but probably…

Is this the real guarantee amount? We saw the Colin Kaepernick deal get initially reported as $61 million in guaranteed money only to be nothing of the sort. However, Pro Football Talk is reporting that it is $30 million guaranteed at initial signing, with $15 million more vesting next offseason, as an injury-only guarantee.

Jason McIntyre is on record as being on the Chicago Bears under, and thinking the Dallas Cowboys are going to be one of the worst teams in the league, drafting 4th overall in the next draft.

You would be hard pressed to find two coaches the caliber of Nick Saban and Gus Malzahn in any other state right now, and there's little reason to think either school is likely to drop off in the near future. But a rising tide lifts all boats. DRAGONS COMIN, Y'ALL.

    "I've never seen it this big""Dad, even you aren't good enough to surf these waves""Whoa, I can't believe it's so big.""I'm just glad we found parking."These were someone of the conversations taking place on the sand while The Wedge in Newport Beach put on a show for locals and tourists alike. Waves were in the 20-30ft. range and provided challenging situations for surfers and bodyboarders alike. Jamie O'Brien has since become a Wedge local and caught a couple big sets, before snapping his Catch Surfboard!By 8am, the surrounding streets and alleys closely resembled the 405 Freeway as people…
  • The Swell of The Decade?

    Chase
    26 Aug 2014 | 8:22 am
    As a major south swell is schedule to arrive later tonight and peak tomorrow, surfers up and down the California coast are preparing for some major surf. Many forecasters are reporting that this will be one of the biggest swells to hit our coastline in more than a decade. Is this hype? Only time will tell.  While all of this is very exciting, it is also important to remember that the ocean is very powerful and surf conditions can change quite rapidly. Rip currents will look more like rivers and side shore currents will surely pose a challenge to swimmers, bodyboarders and surfers alike.

    For me personally, the 2014 Billabong Pro Tahiti is one of my favorite stops on the WCT each year. Especially when a solid swell presents itself; something which pushes many professional surfers outside of their comfort zones. This year was no different as the waves were stellar and the top surfers really put on a show.Of course, this included some heavy wipeouts, serious injuries and crucial rescues during the peak of the swell as those in the water were dedicated to charging hard. While Teahupoo can be a punishing wave for those who ride it, it surely creates an exciting event for…

    While the Wedge in Newport Beach may have looked more like a playful and fun beach break this morning which was spitting out perfect barrels for those who ventured into the lineup, one must also remember how dangerous of a spot it really is. With heavy closeouts breaking in waist deep water, wonky backwash and unpredictable sneaker sets, the wedge is a fun, scary and hard to predict beast. The lineup was extremely crowded with local standouts like Dylan Cotton and top professionals including Jamie O'Brien; both of which were absolutely charging! All photos by Chase Miller

    Sports Are 80 Percent Mental

  • Maybe Your Kids Inherited Your Couch Potato Genes

    26 Aug 2014 | 8:26 am
    On the road to sports success, young athletes need two ingredients, innate skills and the willingness and determination to get better.  We all know boys and girls who showed early promise that got them noticed but then didn’t have the drive to practice every day to develop that talent.  Often labeled lazy or unmotivated, the assumption was that they chose their own path by not working hard.  However, new research shows evidence that genetics may play a role not only in the natural abilities of a developing superstar but also in their practice persistence and…
  • See The Game Through The Eyes Of The Quarterback

    Going into the start of football season, there is plenty of expert commentary on what makes up the “right stuff” when evaluating quarterbacks. Everything from arm strength to height to foot skills to the size of their hands was measured and dissected to find the magic combination of variables. While the body mechanics of delivering a football on target are vital, QBs rely even more on their vision both before and after the ball is snapped.It’s not just knowing where and when to look at an opposing defense but also understanding what to look for across the line. Defensive players are…
  • How To Train The Runner's Brain - An Interview With Jason Fitzgerald

    5 Jun 2014 | 10:49 am
    As productive human athletes, we just assume that we can knock down any walls put in front of us and conquer new feats of greatness if "we just put our mind to it."  Our conscious brain sets goals, gives pep talks and convinces us that with the right training plan, we can finish a race of any distance. But, when we're stretching our training run farther than ever before, the little voice in our head pops up to try to talk some sense into us; "that's enough for today" or "there's a lot of pain happening right now, time to quit."  As I discussed in last week's post about the…

    What makes an endurance athlete quit? Not quit the sport, but quit during a competition.  Every runner, swimmer, or cyclist starts a race with the desire to win or at least achieve a personal best time.  They’ve done the pre-race math - keep at a certain pace for the entire distance to achieve the target time.  Their wearable technology keeps them updated on heart rate, distance and split times to stay on that pace.  However, at the finish line, many athletes are not able to maintain their strides/strokes per minute, giving in to the perception that their energy tank is…

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

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

  • Financial Planning and Pro Athletes: Players In Investment Trouble

    Steve Richards
    31 Jul 2014 | 9:15 am
    On the topic of financial planning, American economist Paul Samuelson once said, “Investing should be more like watching paint dry or watching grass grow. If you want excitement, take $800 and go to Las Vegas.” Of course, some athletes have no problems going to Vegas, and they take a lot more than $800 with them. For example, golfer John Daly once claimed that he lost between $50 million and $60 million on bad bets. If the rest of us had $50 million to lose, we’d probably invest in the stock market. In fact, a lot of athletes invest their millions in securities or in business ventures.

  • Ohio State's Playbook Should Blossom in Due Time, But It Hinges on More Than Just J.T. Barrett

    Patrick Maks
    1 Sep 2014 | 1:05 pm
    On a scale of 1-10, Devin Smith said Ohio State's offense operated at about a "four or five" against Navy Saturday.  "We really didn't do a whole lot passing and running," the senior wide receiver said, "but we got the job done. That's all that matters.” Sure, its output was enough to beat the Midshipmen 34-17 in Baltimore, but it took the Buckeyes the better part of three quarters to go from ugly to effective.  "Offensively," head coach Urban Meyer said Monday, "that was very poor the first half." And it wasn't until Smith caught an 80-yard bomb from redshirt freshman quarterback J.T.

    The class of 2017 is still in the early stages of the recruiting process, but Ohio State is in the mix for some of 2017's best prospects. One talented player the Buckeyes are looking at in 2017 is an Akron product, Archbishop Hoban running back Todd Sibley. Sibley, a 5-foot-10, 195-pound running back, is one of the most promising players in the state. In December, Sibley was named to the freshman All-American team by Maxpreps.com. "That was awesome," Sibley said of making the freshman All-American team. "I'll never forget the day that I got the call from my coach that I had made the team.

    Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer knows if the Buckeyes want to have a shot at beating Virginia Tech Saturday they are going to have to play better than they did against Navy. But in particular, one group stood out to Meyer as he addressed the media Mondayweekly press conference: the offensive line. "Concern No. 1 is offensive line," Meyer said. " ... Our offensive line did not play like an Ohio State offensive line. The standard was set many, many years ago. I think coach (Ed) Warinner, the last two years really added to the reputation of Ohio State offensive line. We did not play like…
  • What Do We Know in College Football after Week 1?

    Vico
    1 Sep 2014 | 11:15 am
    Week 1 is effectively in the rear-view mirror. Louisville and Miami have yet to kick off their seasons, which they will do tonight in the ACC's annual Labor Day game. Further, Idaho and Florida are still in a holding pattern regarding their suspended game from Saturday night, though few are bemoaning the missed opportunity of watching Florida football. What do we know about the college football landscape after the first week of the 2014 season? The short answer is that we will not know much from one week because one game does not constitute a pattern. Still, I'll offer conjecture here about…

    1 Sep 2014 | 10:11 am
    Ohio State tight end Marcus Baugh has been suspended for two games for what head coach Urban Meyer called "stuff" Monday afternoon.  Baugh, a redshirt freshman who was cited for underage drinking twice last year, didn't make the team's trip to Baltimore for a 34-17 win against Navy Saturday. He won't suit against Virginia Tech this weekend either.  Baugh, who came to Columbus from Riverside, Calif., as one of the nation's top recruits, was expected to provide depth behind tight ends senior Jeff Heuerman and Nick Vannett after turning some heads during spring ball.  Baugh was first charged…

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

Well surprisingly enough, laxers haven’t always been so lucky to use such artfully crafted pieces of lacrosse equipment. There was a time as early as 1000 A.D. where laxers had to build their own lacrosse sticks, usually of wood, and pray that they wouldn’t break. Or even worse, hope that the ball wouldn’t hit the lip when passing or shooting. Cringe. What’s worse is they didn’t have…

Basically, I am on the blogging DL for at least another week as I have a sheath tear in my right wrist. It is the same arm that kept me on the blogging DL four years ago when I had elbow ligament repair surgery due to sever tennis elbow.

Right now, the Yankees are 47-47, five games back in the AL East compared to 3.5 games in the wild card. This leaves the Yankees in striking distance to get a postseason berth, but things have to improve. The Yankees will have to get better without ace Masahiro Tanaka for at least the next six weeks, but if Shane Greene’s arm continues to impress it could soften that blow a tad.

That seemed to be the most prevalent Patriots-based question among those immediately digesting the deal. Mallett was drafted in the third round in 2011, so four seasons later, how could he be worth only a late-rounder? The market spoke.

    Reunited In Cleveland Former Washington Redskins QB Rex Grossman has signed with the Cleveland Browns in a move I’ve been anticipating for months. Grossman will reunite with former ‘Skins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. It seems like these two guys are joined at the hip. Grossman will become the Browns third string signal caller and become a mentor of sorts for QB’s Johnny Football and Brian Hoyer as they try to learn the Shanahan offensive system. I don’t think Grossman has much left as a player, but I think this is a good signing for the Browns. The biggest…

How they continue to let the Atlanta Braves slip past them game after game is mind-boggling to me. Like in last night’s 3-1 loss where pitcher Gio Gonzalez fails to cover first base on a ground ball that allowed the Braves to score the go ahead run when the inning would have been over if he had just executed the fundamentals. What’s he thinking? The Nationals went down to Atlanta with a 4.5 game lead over the rival Braves with a chance to…

  • Three way battle for La Liga 2014-2015

    Sayantan Sarkar
    1 Sep 2014 | 4:33 am
    In Spain, the first division league was dominated by the two of the biggest club in Europe throughout the last decade. Barcelona and Real Madrid dominated the La Liga in Spain until last season, when the underdogs Atletico Madrid clinched the title in dramatic fashion. It was highly unlikely result given the fire power that was possessed by the likes of Barcelona and Real. Many believed that Atletico was the team of the year last season. Their resilience and team work outshined their major rivals and beat them to the domestic crown. As heartbreaking as it was for Real and Barca, the triumph…

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

What’s more nearly a quarter of gyms have a poor understanding of suggested safety guidelines from Fitness Australia which have been designed to improve industry standards across the nation. The results come from a survey of more than 1,100 people working in the industry, and also discovered that 44 per cent say free weights aren’t being put away properly,…

    Make no bones about it, BYU’s road win Friday night against UConn was ugly. But the train wreck that was 15 penalties for 150 yards could turn into a positive for the Cougars going forward. Here’s why. Beating up on an inferior opponent–and make no mistake, UConn was a vastly inferior team–can mask a team’s weaknesses. That’s why Bronco Mendenhall said after the game that getting the win in sloppy fashion may actually be a good thing; it gives the team clear areas to work on without going home with loss. And BYU has plenty of room for improvement,…

We all know that Idaho State is a warm-up game against a FCS team that the Utes scheduled much like every other Power 5 school does the first week, so it’s an obvious win. But given that it’s a win, what will the Utes need to accomplish in order to feel that this first game is a success? In my opinion, if Utah does not accomplish all of the following, they can consider this game a loss: Tempo – Under Dave Christiansen, the Utes are looking to improve…

    Mike Prada
    1 Sep 2014 | 2:38 pm
    Spain dispatched its top challenger in Group A with ease, pulling away early from Brazil for an 82-63 win. In their first real test of the 2014 FIBA World Cup, Spain soundly defeated top Group A challenger Brazil and reasserted themselves as the tournament's co-favorites.

    Constantly updating transfer news and rumors from the Premier League, La Liga, Serie A and Bundesliga, throughout Monday's madness. For most countries in Europe, the transfer deadline pops up on Monday. The deadline usually falls on the final day of August, but for the second year in a row, that day was on a weekend, while games were being played. For that reason, the transfer window stretches into September, and will close at 11 p.m. BST, 6 p.m. ET in most countries, including England. The window closes at different times in some other countries, however. Because the Germans generally like…
  • Liverpool's Oussama Assaidi goes to Stoke on loan for the second straight year

    Kevin McCauley
    1 Sep 2014 | 2:31 pm
    Maybe this time they'll end up buying him? Coming off the back of a successful loan spell last season, Oussama Assaidi has left Liverpool to join Stoke City on loan yet again. Since Assaidi clearly doesn't have much of a future at Liverpool, it's odd that Stoke haven't just bought Assaidi outright. They seemed willing to buy Aaron Lennon earlier in the day before the player indicated he wasn't interested in the move, so they clearly have the money. But negotiations were too last-minute to get a sale done, so Assaidi has moved on loan again. Chances are, Stoke can get a permanent deal done…

    Real Madrid already signed two breakout stars of the Brazil World Cup earlier in this transfer window, so to close it out, they had to look to other sources of inspiration. And with the addition of Chicharito on loan from Manchester United, it seems they took that inspiration from a fictional 2008 film set within the club. Yes, Javier Hernandez's move to Real Madrid is the story of Goal II come to life.  Let's look at the facts...

According to Al.com, Saban referred to Williams’ injury as a “Jones fracture,” which is a “break of the fifth metatarsal at the base of his small toe.” To remedy the issue, a screw was put in Williams’ foot on Sunday.

    At least the tough season for the Philadelphia Phillies now has a historic highlight — Cole Hamels and three Phillies relief pitchers combined to no-hit the Atlanta Braves in a 7-0 win Monday, the first combined no hitter since the Seattle Mariners threw one in 2012. It's the first combined no-hitter in Phillies history, their 12th overall and their first no-hitter since 2010, when Roy Halladay threw two. This makes four no-hitters this season in MLB. Josh Beckett, Clayton Kershaw and Tim Lincecum tossed the others. Cole Hamels started things off for the Phillies on Labor Day, and his start…

She’s a five-time champion here, and in the stifling heat of Monday afternoon, she came one step closer to a sixth title. After meeting Kanepi on the net, Williams turned to the crowd and pumped her fist more than a dozen times, looking as happy as 17-year-old qualifier Belinda…

I remember the time we were playing slow pitch wiffle ball and I got mad (I was probably losing), so I decided to break the rules and wing a fastball in there. Without flinching, my brother smacked that wiffle ball out of our yard, across the street and into the tree tops of our neighbors. In the history of baseball there has probably never been a pitcher who celebrated an opposing player’s home run like I did that day. But when my brother hit that home run, the…

    It’s that time of year again. While running in the morning with my wife I see the school buses driving through our neighborhood. We see parents waving good-bye as the kids head off to school. Back to school is here! It’s the time to get readjusted to having schedules and various activities that were on hiatus over summer break. For the youth athlete it can also mean getting ready for tryouts or preseason workouts. While this happens every year, each year still brings something new and exciting, and your kids can use your help adjusting to it all. Whether your kids can drive to and…

  • FRIDAY RANDOM THOUGHTS

    Kevin Krest
    29 Aug 2014 | 6:56 am
    It's a Friday before a holiday weekend, which also happens to be the first one of the college football season. My picks for Thursday were abysmal and I was only saved from going zero for the night by an expected blowout win by Arizona State. So I have to come back from a 1 - 3 start, but it's a long season and hope springs eternal.College Football Kicks Off: As I watched Texas A&M dismantle South Carolina last night, I couldn't help but wonder whether the Aggies are that good or if the Gamecocks are a bit overrated. If it's the former, then the rest of the SEC West had better be on…
  • Coaches Bail, Athletes Have To Stay

    Obviously, It’s All About Winning:Let’s see, Bobby Petrino is now the head football coach at the University of Louisville, which begins its first season in the ACC. No big deal, right? I mean let’s face it, the guy can flat out recruit and coach football players. His teams win, and win in exciting fashion. They must really like him at Louisville, considering they hired him for the second time after taking the Cardinals to four bowl games and leading them to two top ten national rankings in four seasons from 2003 – 2006.But now this is where it gets interesting. Petrino, despite…
  • COLLEGE FOOTBALL: WEEK ONE PREDICTIONS

    After over seven months of having to convince ourselves that the NBA, early season Major League Baseball, golf's four major championships, hockey and even the World Cup somehow passed for sports, it's time for what we've been craving since Florida State's exciting victory over Auburn. COLLEGE FOOTBALL!And to think that finally, the conclusion to the upcoming season will be a four team (soon to be eight teams) playoff that will give us a true champion of the sport. Florida State goes into the season as the odds on favorite, but that's usually just a kiss of death. But if the Seminoles can get…

    22 Feb 2014 | 6:01 pm
    RUSSIA, REALLY?: Today, American Vic Wild won his second snowboarding gold medal of the Olympic Games while competing for Russia. Wild, who married a Russian Olympian, is nothing short of a total athletic traitor. I'm sure Wild would maintain he has the right to do whatever he wants within the rules of international competition. I maintain that I have the right to voice whatever opinion I have of his reprehensible decision. I don't know much about his background or history, but I'm pretty sure he benefited greatly from the freedom and opportunity our great country has to offer. This smells…

    BIG SURPRISE?: So the Canadians have kicked serious you know what in hockey and curling at the Olympics. Both sports involve a lot of ice, something that last time I checked, doesn't naturally exist in a large part of the United States at anytime during the year. But what's really interesting is that the national sport of our wonderful neighbors to the north is neither of the sports at which they excelled in Sochi. Most Americans would probably be surprised to hear that lacrosse is Canada's national sport. Of course, most Americans would probably be surprised to hear anything about lacrosse,…

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

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

  • O-Line: The double team

    Brad DeHaven
    21 Jul 2014 | 1:17 am
    Teaching an offensive line to work together is the most vital part to the success of an offense. From pass blocking to picking up a blitzing defensive player, a lineman must be ready to help his fellow teammate. One key fundamental which I feel should be taught is the double team. This can be done between the center and guard, guard and tackle, as well as tackle and TE. In my opinion the double team starts from the split between the lineman. If the lineman are too far apart, it will take too long for them to work together. By the time they do get to a position where they can function as one,…

So it is essential that you look the part!  A few good pieces can get you through a season.  (Unless you are my like my husband who thinks he needs 15 short sleeve UNC T-shirts and a closet full of Titan gear!)…

    One very important aspect of making running enjoyable is having the right running gear. Not only do you want to look good but you want to choose things that are practical. Let’s face it, many of us have a long list of things we want…and those of us with kids often have to put those things at the end of the list. So when it does come time to buy running clothes you want to spend your money on things you can get the most use out of. Without a doubt what I have the most of are good, longer length, dri-fit type running tanks. First let me address the longer description. Luckily almost all…

Not because he has not been the biggest story coming out of Washington besides the nonsense that happens on Capitol Hill. Not because I do not like him. The Washington Redskins quarterback has captivated this town in both good and in bad ways.

The Washington Redskins’ coaching staff must cut as many as 20 guys from the team by 4:00 p.m. tomorrow and they have some very tough decisions to make. This year, the NFL increased the number of players on the practice squad from eight to 10 which is somewhat helpful. But there is more talent on this squad than we’ve seen in a long time at this time of the year. Predicting Washington’s final 53-man roster was not easy.

  • Black Stripes No More: Samuel And McMillan Get The Thumbs Up In Ohio

    The Ohio State football team has a tradition that every freshman must undergo: wear a black stripe on the helmet until you prove yourself in practice. Coach Urban Meyer started this as a rite of passage. Those that perform well during training can have their stripes removed and finally become part of the team. This year, the first freshmen to get their stripes off were Raekwon McMillan and Curtis Samuel -- a linebacker and a running back, respectively. Coach Meyer has been very vocal about these recruits who have impressed him with their performance since they got on the campus field.
  • Tracy Sprinkle Faces Suspension

    7 Aug 2014 | 3:06 am
    Tracy Sprinkle, the former high school football star from Elyria, was hit with a 1-game suspension, but has been reinstated to Ohio State. OSU announced last Tuesday that they were reinstating the dismissed defensive end. He now must serve a 1-game suspension. The former high school football giant received his dismissal in July from head coach Urban Myer. This was the result of Tracy Sprinkle being arrested in connection with a bar fight in Northeast Ohio, which also led to charges that included cocaine possession. The football star pleaded 'no contest' in the face of an amended misdemeanor…

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

    Empowering the Young for Life By David Hahn Jim Spier has been a fan of track and field since he was a high school student in the late 1950s. When he attended track and field events as an adult he got interested in the Junior events (under 20) and noticed that the Junior teams did not represent the makeup of the top high school track and field athletes in the nation. Together with his friend, Mike Byrnes, they did some digging, asking questions and studying the process. What Jim and Mike learned is that many young high school athletes could not advance to higher level sanctioned events. On…

  • Italy Rewind: Mark Donnal

    29 Aug 2014 | 6:30 am
    Welcome to “Italy Rewind,” our player-by-player recap and video feature from Michigan’s four-game tour of Italy. Previously: Zak Irvin, Caris LeVert, Derrick Walton, Aubrey Dawkins, Ricky Doyle, Kameron Chatman & Muhammad Ali Abdur-Rahkman. Today: Mark Donnal. Mark Donnal spent last season battling against Jordan Morgan, Mitch McGary and Jon Horford in practice as he sat out during his redshirt season. The rest of his time last season was spent in the weight room – he’s now up to 240 pounds – as he prepared for his number 34 to be called this season. Now Mitch McGary,…
  • Italy Rewind: Derrick Walton

    Dylan Burkhardt
    28 Aug 2014 | 10:45 am
    Derrick Walton was Michigan’s fourth option offensively last season, but expectations are high for the 6-foot point guard from Detroit. Walton was a complementary star last season and while he made huge plays on the road at Michigan State, Nebraska and Ohio State he was always just out of the limelight. With Nik Stauskas, Glenn Robinson III, Mitch McGary and Jordan Morgan gone, all eyes will be on Walton to make a sophomore leap. He was efficient when he picked his spots last year and this blog has even hypothesized that he could make a Yogi Ferrell-like jump during his sophomore year.

A ‘three-and-d’ player is athletic enough to guard multiple positions and can knock down three-point shots reliably.

Previously: Zak Irvin, Ricky Doyle & Kameron Chatman John Beilein has made a career out of his ability to recruit shooters and his perimeter-oriented offense has always been stereotyped by the three-point shot.

A couple days later, conflicting information came out and the account was being questioned. Eventually, Shaw admitted to making up the entire story.

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

After all, in competition, the only people it matters to “outdo” are your opponents! Out working your teammates is great, but you’re not fighting against them in competition.

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

    Have you seen those posts on social media?  Or maybe you’ve seen stories on the news or gotten ” professional advice” from your doctor about bad “screens” are?  Various sources rant about how people nowadays “always” have their nose buried in their electronics, “never” talk to each other face to face anymore, and make you feel guilty for how life is passing you by while you sit staring at your phone or tablet. Well, I’m not one who buys into a lot of hype and I feel like that’s what a lot of this is.  After all, screens are…

  • 2014 College Football Betting Against the Public Report

    David Solar
    31 Aug 2014 | 1:10 pm
    Betting against the public has proven to be a historically profitable strategy across the six major American sports leagues, but constructing a solid system for College Football can be surprisingly difficult. One of the main reasons for this is that the number of bets varies greatly from game to game. For example, a contest between Alabama and Auburn may receive more than ten times the number of bets as a game between two smaller schools which greatly amplifies the impact of public betting. For this reason, simply looking at teams receiving less than 30% of spread bets may not be as accurate…

    Week 3 of the Barclay’s Premier League was awesome. Manchester United dropped points AGAIN, this time at Burnley, and their neighbors Manchester City lost at home to Stoke City 1-0. Chelsea annihilated Everton on their home turf by a score of 6-3, and Arsenal were held in check at Leicester City.

  • Are Good Rushing Teams Undervalued in Low Scoring College Football Games?

    David Solar
    30 Aug 2014 | 11:00 am
    For a long time I’ve theorized that underdogs with an effective ground game are typically undervalued — especially in low scoring games. The logic behind this hypothesis was simple enough: If teams are able to rush the football effectively then they are able to continually move the chains, eat clock, and stay within striking distance of their opponent. The nation’s top ranked rushing attacks are adept at keeping opposing offenses off the field and limiting the number of plays run in a given game. This typically leads to less scoring, which disproportionately benefits…
  • Which NFL Head Coaches Are on the Hot Seat?

    David Solar
    30 Aug 2014 | 9:30 am
    Sports fans can be a fickle and reactionary bunch — and quite prone to hyperbole. One day a player is your cities savior, the next day they’re a clubhouse cancer that needs to be removed. I think it would be fair to say that the average football fan changes their opinion almost as often as my girlfriend…almost. For that reason sports talk radio is usually inundated with calls about how their head coach should be fired, and that conversation can quickly turn into a mainstream media narrative. The NFL head coaching circuit is a carousel where coaches are often hired, fired…

    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…

    By Jordan SchoonThe summer of 2014 will be looked back on similarly to 2010 in the way that the competitive landscape of the NBA drastically shifted.  While there were certainly interesting moves and repercussions out west, the top tier teams (OKC, Spurs, Clips, etc.) largely remained in similar positions.  The West will be another bloodbath next season, but the teams competing for playoff spots should remain static.  The big changes happened in the lowly Eastern Conference, which now looks much more open and slightly more competitive for the upcoming season.  Miami and…

    Kellen Moore is better than Dan Orlovsky. That’s what the game tape tells us, and after years of listening to coaches and analysts bloviate I’ve learned the tape doesn’t lie. Football is the closest thing we have to a meritocracy. It doesn’t matter what round a player is drafted in, where he’s from, what color he is or what he looks like. If he’s better than that the guy sitting next to him in the meeting room, he’ll play ahead of him. Yet, after playing well for most the preseason and capping the month by going 17-for-28 for 172 yards and two…
  • What to watch for in this final Lions preseason game: The champ, position battles and Kellen Moore

    Mike
    28 Aug 2014 | 6:00 am
      The champ has already been crowned. The Lions’ team is already set. Legitimate college football is being played. I get it. You don’t have a valid reason to watch the Lions play the Bills other than to scream at your TV like the overemotional chick in one of those terrible girl movies whenever there is a cutaway to Jim Schwartz. But there is some intrigue. The first, of course, is the winner of the James Mungro Memorial Award presented by (sponsor pending). George Johnson will play. Probably a lot. And when you have an opportunity to witness the glory of George Johnson on a…

    That man, wrestling for the ball? That’s the winner of the JMMA. As men played for their jobs and coaches watched, deciding who to keep, I issued a challenge to four men: Go out and win the James Mungro Memorial Award presented by (sponsor pending). None paid any attention, of course — they had careers and livelihoods to worry about — but  it certainly seemed like one did. It wasn’t Greg Hickman. The fourth-string defensive tackle had a couple brief moments to engage the imagination. What if he did this all the time? How good would he be?. But that’s not how…

As the face of the prospect pool for the Toronto Blue Jays, Stroman is widely considered the next big thing in their minor league system. The organization thinks highly enough of Stroman that they’ve already promoted him to the big leagues and he made his first career start last week, earning a victory thanks to a highly potent offense as of late. The Blue Jays beat the Royals, 12-2, and Stroman was elated. “It was pretty special,” Stroman…

    By Jordan SchoonThe summer of 2014 will be looked back on similarly to 2010 in the way that the competitive landscape of the NBA drastically shifted.  While there were certainly interesting moves and repercussions out west, the top tier teams (OKC, Spurs, Clips, etc.) largely remained in similar positions.  The West will be another bloodbath next season, but the teams competing for playoff spots should remain static.  The big changes happened in the lowly Eastern Conference, which now looks much more open and slightly more competitive for the upcoming season.  Miami and…

    23 Jul 2014 | 1:56 pm
    By Jordan SchoonEver since David Kahn decided to not give Kevin Love the fattest, longest contract possible because he wanted to save the five-year max for Ricky Rubio, Timberwolves fans have dreaded the reckoning in 2015 when Love could opt-out of his contract to be an unrestricted free agent.  Due to poor drafting (hi Jonny Flynn and Wes Johnson, what's up Derrick Williams!), even worse player development, and being stuck in the grindhouse of the Western Conference, the Wolves' failure to make the playoffs during Kevin Love's tenure has brought down a "trade me or I'm leaving you for…

    Rogue Brewery, Dead Guy Ale.      This is one of the most popular, and higher priced beers in the great state of Oregon. Until now it is one I have not tried. However for the sake of doing this inaugural post I reached deep down into my pocket and shelled out the twelve dollars and bought myself a six pack.

    Most of Fountain Square Brewery‘s bottles have a consistent label design with a periodic table symbol, the beer style clearly shown with the same font, and some pleasing artwork. All of them look really nice and it makes for consistent branding, but my favorite of their labels is Soul Ride’s, which diverges from this norm. I guess there isn’t really an appropriate element for a periodic table symbol for Soul Ride, so that was left out. The artwork takes up more space and is more interesting on this label, and the beer style is smaller and integrated with the art. The label…

    The Nationals came up short in Seattle on Sunday, but despite the 5-3 loss to the Mariners, Washington takes the series two games to one. Heading into the season’s final month, the Nats (77-58) hold a six game lead over the Braves in the NL East. The Nats led 3-1 at the game’s midway point, powered by a pair of Bryce Harper home runs.

    31 Aug 2014 | 11:31 am
    The Washington Redskins have claimed safety Duke Ihenacho off waivers from the Denver Broncos. With a 3-13 record last season, Washington has second waiver priority and snatched up Ihenacho relatively quickly. With Brandon Merriweather set to start the first two games on suspension, the addition of Ihenacho is a big deal for the Redskins. He is not an All Pro safety, but he is certainly a solid player and a welcome addition to Washington’s secondary that quickly became a mess when Merriweather’s suspension was handed down. Ihenacho started 14 games last season at strong safety…

    MOST SURPRISING CUT Rookie RB Lache Seastrunk, a 6th round pick out of Baylor, showed impressive speed running the ball all preseason and his 80-yard catch-and-run TD reception against Tampa Bay was clearly the best single play the team had during the preseason. But it wasn’t enough to keep him on the active roster, as he lost out to fellow rookie Silas Redd, a hard-running undrafted free agent who led the team with 157 rushing yards on 34 carries during the preseason. The team also cut second-year RB Chris Thompson, but since he missed two preseason games and a ton of practices with…

The Nats used the long ball, six on the night, to support a solid pitching performance by Jordan Zimmermann. Washington hit six home runs in one game for only the fourth time in club history, but the most amazing aspect is that four of them came off arguably the best pitcher in the American League, Felix Hernandez.

Some may feel that the pre-season polls either hype up a team too much or do not give enough credit to the underdog. These polls are rarely correct especially when it comes to picking the number one team in the country.

I remember the time we were playing slow pitch wiffle ball and I got mad (I was probably losing), so I decided to break the rules and wing a fastball in there.

Many of the features that make a gun easy to carry also make it difficult to shoot well, because every design choice confers an advantage to one characteristic and exacts a penalty from another. Searching for the Golden Mean of 1911 concealing ability and combat utility, Kimber followed conventional wisdom by choosing a shortened barrel and alloy frame.

    Two draws and a City win provided us with a tasty 6.75 profit last week, though this week’s action looks a little more difficult to predict, especially after some serious activity in the transfer market. A Manchester football team spending absurd amounts of money in a bid to play catch-up with their neighbours is nothing new, but the boot is certainly on the other foot as United find themselves investing millions in new players in an effort to match slick City’s exploits. Meanwhile, ex-Manchester City cast-off Mario Balotelli returns to the Premiership in a big to bolster a Liverpool side…

    Liverpool and Tottenham are both with hopes for the fourth place in the Premier League table, only that the bookmakers see the Reds in the top five rather than this week’s opponents. Tottenham are currently on the first place in the Premier League table, with a better goal difference than Chelsea, after the 1-0 win against West Ham and the 4-0 win against QPR. Eric Dier is also among the best goalscorers, being paired up with the likes of Sergio Aguero and Diego Costa. This time around Tottenham will try to avoid the embarrassment from the last season when they lost with 9-0 on aggregate,…

Ludogorets ridiculed CSKA Sofia when they won against them with 2-0 all while resting several of their key players.

Though the league’s 2011 Collective Bargaining Agreement brought a drastic decrease in rookie salaries, it altered the rookie contract to a four-year commitment, allowing players to enter negotiations with teams sooner than they had been able to in previous years.  With that predetermined four-year deal came a new fifth-year option, which allows teams to delay negotiations with first-round picks by placing a one-year extension (with a significant pay increase in that year)…

  • Buffalo Bills Preseason Game 4 Recap

    Bills 14     Buccaneers 27I thought I was seeing things when the game starts with Tampa kicking off to…Fred Jackson. Yes, Marquise Goodwin was back there as well, but here we go again. I guess it was not a brain freeze by Marrone the week prior in putting C.J. Spiller back there as obviously this is Marrone's plan with Fred now doing it this week. I am lost!What is Marrone thinking? Now the oldest running back in the NFL is risking his career by returning kicks. At a time where Fred is one of all our favorites and knows he will be coming in to play as much as possible with C.J.

    As a 19-year-old born and raised in Buffalo, it is hard to say I have experienced any Buffalo Bills team to necessarily brag about. Though I was alive for our last playoff run I am quite sure I was more worried about escaping my older brother’s Razor Ramon wrestling imitations than the future employment outlook of special teams coach Bruce DeHaven.   However, my lack of successful football fandom has not in any way stopped my father from reciting his many stories of his very own Buffalo Bills. You would think Jim Kelly, Thurman Thomas, and Bruce Smith have been living in my…

    Bills 16     Steelers 19 I knew after the decent game we had prior that it was time to see our starters score a touchdown in this one. The game starts with Pittsburgh kicking off and I am shocked when the kick returner is C.J. Spiller. Isn’t he our starting running back? What the heck is Doug Marrone thinking? If this resulted in an injury to Spiller you know Marrone would be on the hot seat. This is one of those calls like the 10 per game we questioned in every game Dick Jauron coached! Spiller received the kick and runs through some pretty heavy traffic all the way to our…

    Bills 20       Panthers 18 Well Doug Marrone showed us he really wanted to win with playing his starters (who needed the work) until the eleven minute mark of the second quarter. The offense looked sharp immediately going down the field with precision. Motivated by running backs waiting to shine, C.J. Spiller ran the first play 14 yards. He then had a second carry for a few. Then we saw EJ finally get the ball to Sammy Watkins and this beauty went for 14 yards and another first down. C.J. then runs for 3 and Sammy catches his second catch for 5 yards. EJ looks like he is in…

    Bills 13   Giants 17We all know how exciting preseason football is to watch. At about halftime, it’s as much fun as watching a turtle walk around aimlessly with no destination in mind!But we are Buffalo Bills fans and we painfully watch most of the game (have to be honest) as we are so hungry to see our team look good and yes, win. Did I say win? Marv Levy did not give a hoot about the preseason and played our stars sparingly to say the least. He knew what we had and just wanted to see and evaluate our rookies. Doug Marrone actually told the press how upset he was at not winning our…

    How many of us remember the epic clashes of Shoaib Akhtar Vs Virender Sehwag in IPL and the entire crowd backing Akhtar in the battle? The brilliant performance of Sohail Tanvir when he took 6/14 for Rajasthan Royals? All these were possible in IPL 1. And I bet everyone of us do want Pakistani players in IPL to redefine the excitement of the biggest domestic cricketing tournament. Since the first edition of IPL, Pakistan did not participate in any further IPL due to some political and security constraints which arose after the 26/11 mishap. But at present, as it stands, we can see some light…

    The first match of the 5-match ODI series between England and India was washed out due to intensive rain at Bristol. At present, as it stands, apparently the series has gone down to a 4-match series. The second ODI will be played tomorrow at Cardiff. India are desperate to make a bounce back in their tour to England after a poor performance in the test series where they were literally humiliated by the hosts and India lost the test series by a margin of 1-3. The ODI squad of India had some changes to that of the test squad. The brilliant fielder and a good left handed batsman, Suresh Raina is…

  • Detroit: Behind Enemy Lines

    Robert Wells
    30 Aug 2014 | 10:47 am
      After a series with the lowly Twins in which the Royals struggled, but ultimately took two of the three games, their place atop the AL central seems to be in jeopardy. They currently have a tenuous hold on a one and a half game lead, but there is reason to believe that they can, in fact, hang on (if Bruce Chen isn’t pitching too often). As a native Missourian that has been transplanted, against my will, into a suburb of Detroit, I have no choice but to listen to the enemy’s sports radio programming during my daily commute. Although the personalities are smug and condescending,…

    29 Aug 2014 | 10:06 pm
    It was a perfect August evening in Kansas City on Friday night. Kauffman Stadium was electric; over 31,000 fans came through the turnstiles to watch their first-place Royals. Unfortunately, the Royals couldn’t reward their fans with a memorable performance, falling 6-1 to the hands of the Cleveland Indians. For the second straight start, Jason Vargas (10-7) was shaky, and just like the Rangers did last Sunday, the Indians punished him early on. After surrendering a run on a second-inning double, Vargas was battered in the third. Jose Ramirez singled home the game’s second run, and Carlos…
  • Number Munchers: Back to Minors Part II – Do Numbers Matter?

    Zach Hodson
    29 Aug 2014 | 11:51 am
    A couple weeks back, Number Munchers took a look at the career progression of Christian Colon. Coming off a short stint of initial major league success, kneejerk fans tired of watching “Moose vs the Mendoza Line” and Omar Infante’s tendency to fluctuate at a moment’s notice between Mr Clutch and Dr Awful have been calling for Colon to get an everyday spot in the lineup. With this week’s acquisition of career .214 / .284 / .347 Jayson Nix, the temperature around Colon seems to be bubbling over. Why would an organization that drafted a player in the top 5 not have any faith in him?

    So the Vultures are officially circling.  It is time to put Bruce Chen to pasture.  I have been a fan of his the past few years, but this year he has really shown his age.  With a 7.45 ERA and some truly awful outings from the bullpen, Chen and his $3 million dollar contract, have lost all value on this team (on the field anyways).  As rosters get expanded next week it would be better for the Royals to DFA Chen than have him take up a spot another Lefty could fill in the back end of the bullpen. As a long man in the bullpen there are several deserving AA and AAA guys that could fill…

    Last time out, Jeremy Guthrie pitched seven innings, while battling through a fifty-three minute rain delay. Luckily, there was no rain in sight, and Jeremy Guthrie was allowed an uninterrupted start tonight. Unfortunately, Guthrie’s start would be a bad one. Tonight’s contest between the Twins had a rather odd start. Not that Jeremy Guthrie allowing two runs in an inning is odd, but it’s the way he did it that is rather befuddling. Kennys Vargas and Oswaldo Arcia both had an RBI apiece, but Guthrie managed to throw only eleven pitches in the inning. Kansas City came right…

  • As concerns continue to build, will a Qatar World Cup really happen?

    QRator
    2 Aug 2014 | 6:12 am
    Consider all the reasons critics say Qatar shouldn’t have been awarded World Cup 2022 by FIFA’s executive committee 3 1/2 years ago. There’s the heat: The average high temperature in mid-July, when the final is currently scheduled, is 106 degrees, and FIFA’s own technical report branded Qatar’s climate “a potential health risk” for players. There are the allegations of corruption: The Sunday Times of London reported last month that a Qatari official had paid millions of dollars to FIFA voters and influencers in exchange for World Cup votes. (The Qataris deny this.) And then…

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

However with the monumental task ahead of us next year, (enduring 365 different sports in the space of 365 days) one suspects working hung over and freezing, might be a daily occurrence… so best we start training now! So Bike Polo you say? What’s this business about? It’s quite simple really – it’s like regular polo – but with three essential changes; the horses are replaced with bikes the field is replaced with a basketball court the…

  • Crazy Bowling Trick Shots With Jason Belmonte

    This video was recorded back in June 2014. It shows the Professional Bowlers Association‘s (PBA) number one ranked bowler, Jason Belmonte team up with those crazy guys from Dude Perfect to create this compilation of incredible bowling trick shots. It shows, among other, some impossible spare-making shots, shots that narrowly miss people and strikes in very difficult courses. I think you’d enjoy watching this six minutes video, especially if you are one of the bowlers that are currently participating in UMS Kota Kinabalu International Open 10-Pin Bowling Tournament and waiting for…

  • K. Dharmaraj Axed, A. Arulselvaraj Takes Over

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

    Occasionally Sports Agent Laws do get enforced As a sports agent in the US, the number of licenses, regulations, and laws can be daunting. A basketball agent needs to be FIBA licensed, certified by the NBA, and compliant with the states in which he recruits. Often, the least important of these requirements to the agent […]

    Do sports agents need written player-agent agreements? Does a Player-Agent Agreement have to be in writing? The simple answer is yes, but it may not matter.   FIBA regulations require a “written contract” between a player and agent. But no formalities to that written agreement are prescribed by FIBA. Any writing evidencing the agreement will suffice. […]

  • Hedging Our Bets: Grand Valley State Football

    Colt Kesselring
    1 Sep 2014 | 3:27 pm
    Preseason rankings are uniformly the least accurate rankings of the season. Before the teams take the field there’s just no way to know for sure if the offseason brought improvement or attrition, if new starters will boom or bust, or if the off season hard work was in the right direction. We don’t have the data to make anything more than educated guesses.Of course, this doesn’t mean preseason rankings are worthless — not to the fans at least! We’ve waited all summer for football, and now that kickoff is practically here we want to talk about it. It does mean some of our guesses…

    Like the rest of our rankings, our preseason rankings are data-driven. But before the season there is no data — not on the 2014 versions of these teams at least. It’s a problem.This means some teams with high roster-turnover are ranked more highly in our preseason rankings than they would be in a subjective poll. Our algorithm will self-correct as the season progresses and we get scores and game data, which will make the rankings more predictive week to week. During that process, some teams we ranked well outside the top 25 in the preseason will rise and some we ranked highly will…
