    People – and institutions – learn things in different ways. The norm for most institutions is that they learn by experience and not from some kind of group-cognition that reveals some kind of understanding of smart things to do as opposed to dumb things to do. One of the adversaries to “learning by experience” is stubbornness; some folks – and some institutions – seem impervious to taking advice or considering protest. Often, such folks/institutions rightfully become public piñatas for their actions flavored with their stubbornness. If these rants followed a path of political…

    Michael Beaudwin
    30 Sep 2014 | 10:59 am
    This season just seems to get more and more interesting. Nearly half of the league are 2-2 and only 8 teams have a winning record. Usually by Week 4 you have some understanding as to what a team is or isn’t. Every time I think I may have a handle on a team, they go and lose to Tampa Bay (you know who you are). That isn’t the extent of it though. Super Bowl contenders seem to be anything but that, franchises that should be on the rise are stuck in neutral, and the Dallas Cowboys are playing sound football. That, and a little bit more in this week’s “TPF Rundown.”   Green Bay…

The NFL has exported games over to London since 2007 and has seen an increase to three games this season.  While the NFL is bent on taking over the London market, it’s time for the NFL to realize nobody in the United States or London wants a NFL team in London. This weekend the Oakland Raiders host the Miami Dolphins at Wembley Stadium. That’s right, host as in the Raiders are considered the home team while the Dolphins are considered the road team.

    Depth in National Football League is a commodity. All teams have depth. It is just whether or not the depth is talented enough to get by. Or is the depth talented but too young and going to suffer some growing pains? This is the early case of the Washington Redskins. Coming into the 2014 season, the Washington Redskins lacked talented depth at many positions. They blamed this on the lack of early draft picks in 2012, 2013 and 2014. They also blamed this on the lack of salary cap money due to league imposed penalties the last two years. However, those penalties went away; the lack of talent…

    The Royals were about to get Yost’d, down 7-3 to the A’s after six inning in the American League Wild Card Game Tuesday night at Kauffman Stadium. Lo and behold Kansas City clawed back into the game and forced extra innings in the bottom of the ninth. With one out Jarrod Dyson stole third off Sean Doolittle — celebrated at the bag — and promptly scored the tying run on Nori Aoki’s sac-fly to right. Dyson, a pinch runner for Josh Willingham, moved to second on a sac-bunt … so I guess Ned Yost is a genius … for one inning at least. Baseball…

    Jason Lisk

    The fantasy football waiver wire is deep this week, with plenty of matchup plays and long-term speculative moves. Last week was the last week, as I noted in the tight end section, to buy on Larry Donnell, Travis Kelce, and Dwayne Allen. After the three touchdown game for Donnell and Kelce’s breakout performance against the Patriots, both in primetime, those opportunities have sailed. But this is a good week for shopping and weeding out your roster with some moves as we continue into the bye week. At running back, Jerick McKinnon (22% owned) looks like a decent option going forward.

But with 12 games left in the season, the veteran quarterback knows there is still plenty of time to turn the season around — and he has just the thing to do it.  “If there’s anything I know about football, it’s that little things make a difference. Little details,” said Brady. “And if there’s anything I know about fashion, it’s that it inspires a man to present his best self. That’s why I think we can reach our goals as a…

I agree this isn't the time to attack Brady Hoke's integrity. That torso still looks capable of repelling gunfire at close range. Why doesn't Dave Brandon have a PR statement tracker that'll tell you when it's gonna be ready? I wanna know when the fourth lawyer's looking at it. Can't fault the medical staff too much. Nobody else in Michigan Stadium's standing up either. Our concussion protocols at South Carolina are pretty…

If it takes two days to issue a statement, it's time to just admit you can make jokes about the Michigan athletic department being too dignified to use a telegraph, much less do anything at the speed of even the 20th century, much less the 21st. Remember that they let Brady Hoke have a press conference yesterday, and then issued a statement that looks really bad when contrasted with Hoke's remarks during that presser? That was…

  • Watch This Guy Faint Three Times While Riding A Slingshot Amusement Ride

    Andrew Roberts
    30 Sep 2014 | 8:46 pm
    I really feel for this guy. He joins a long line of amusement park riders that have been caught on tape either fainting or losing their sh*t in the middle of a ride. This guy does both. He shouldn’t feel too bad, though. I know I would probably be in a similar shape in the same situation, plus he still a lot better than Kevin Hart. I do love his revolving experience from Hell though. Not only is his friend a dick for constantly bringing him back, but each return from the dark escape that is his mind is accompanied by a scream. It’s like one of those never-ending nightmares from…
  • Bill Burr Believes That Women Are Secretly Out To Ruin The NFL For Men

    You probably thought that domestic violence, drug use, murder, concussions, injuries, referees, kickoff rules, Jon Gruden, or Roger Goodell were out to ruin football for everyone, but you’d be wrong. According to Bill Burr, it’s those pesky, lizard-eyed women that are going to flush “America’s game” down the commode. Why? Because men are having a good time and that kills women inside. The simple male mind is just a festering sore on the dual attention spans of women and they need to put a stop to it. At least I think that’s what Burr meant, I’m sorta…

    Sony Pictures On Thursday, the beloved and surprisingly lucrative undead action comedy Zombieland turns five years old. Released October 2, 2009, the unlikely Woody Harrelson/Jesse Eisenberg buddy film eventually earned $102 million at the box office, so naturally there was plenty of talk about bringing Harrelson, Eisenberg, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin back for a sequel. But by 2011 Eisenberg, sounded hesitant about his involvement, questioning the sequel’s “relevance,” while Harrelson told Total Film that he didn’t “feel like a sequels guy.” Then there was last year’s…

    Shutterstock It had been a few days since a bombshell of depressing news had been dropped on NFL fans, so here goes: new data from the nation’s largest brain bank shows that 76 out of 79 former players tested showed evidence of CTE. While the overall rate that the brain bank has tested is lower, it ain’t a whole lot lower. Researchers there have now examined the brain tissue of 128 football players who, before their deaths, played the game professionally, semi-professionally, in college or in high school. Of that sample, 101 players, or just under 80 percent, tested positive for…

You see, ever since I quit quarterbackin’, I’ve turned my focus to riding around on my John Deere all day long trying to chop off the heads of groundhogs.

    Getty Image As expected, the Raiders promoted offensive line coach Tony Sparano to interim head coach to replace the ousted Dennis Allen. Ironically enough, it came following a loss to the Miami Dolphins, the team Sparano served as head coach for nearly four years. In his tenure in Miami, Sparano had success in his first season, taking the Dolphins to the franchise’s only playoff appearance since 2001. From there, the Wildcat lost its efficacy and the team was saddled by a dependency on Chad Henne to not be terrible. The circumstances aren’t any better in Oakland. The consensus is…

Instead, the Broncos don't look nearly as dominant as they did in 2013, and the Patriots lie in ruin.

    "National championship or bust" may be asking too much from the Duke Blue Devils in the 2014-15 season, but it is certainly a "deep run in the NCAA tournament or bust" scenario for the team. Mike Krzyzewski’s squad inexplicably lost to Mercer in its first game of the last NCAA tournament and needs to redeem itself quickly. Landing an absolutely loaded recruiting class certainly helps in that regard, and now it is time to win some basketball games. There are a few things that will make or break this freshman-dominated squad on the path to an ACC crown and potential deep postseason run.

    The San Francisco 49ers found themselves last Sunday in their 26-21 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. It wasn't pretty, but the 49ers ended their ugly two-game losing streak.  A 2-2 start isn't what fans expected through the quarter mark. Mediocrity isn't meant for a team boasting multiple All-Pro and Pro Bowl players. Of course, injuries have played a role, but they should not serve as an excuse for such a talented and deep team. Some might point to issues relating to the coach or front office, but ultimately victories and losses are influenced by on-field play.  Nonetheless,…

  • Kameleonz Sunglasses

    29 Sep 2014 | 6:00 am
    Nothing suits a beach outfit better than a great pair of sunglasses. Besides giving you the cool summer look, sunglasses also protect your eyes from UV rays and help you relax on the beach. On the other hand, the biggest problem about sunglasses is that most cannot afford to buy too many high-quality pairs to match all their outfits. A recently established American brand called Kameleonz wants to change the way you think about beach sunglasses. The founders of Kameleonz understand you don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars on a pair of sunglasses that could easily get broken.

    Despite being just 23 years of age, Sally Fitzgibbons is considered a veteran on the ASP Women's World Tour where she has had a range of results. Most notable is being the runner up for the World Title on more than one occasion; much like fellow Australian Taj Burrow. But perhaps the 2014 season will yield a much different result for Sally Fitgibbons who is surfing really good thus far. She is by far the fittest surfer on tour and has a great support system behind her, including her Dad who travels with her throughout the year. At the last event, the 2014 Swatch Women's Pro in San…

  • When Covering Sports is Not Just About Sports

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

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

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

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

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

  • Depth Chart: Michael Thomas is Officially a Starting Wide Receiver at Ohio State

    Patrick Maks
    30 Sep 2014 | 4:51 pm
    In what's been a long and winding journey, Michael Thomas is officially listed as a starting wide receiver at Ohio State, according to the team's weekly depth chart. Thomas, a talented redshirt sophomore, was asked by the coaching staff to sit out last season to mature on and off the field. It's apparently paid dividends.  "He was a mistake guy — every third play, he’d screw it up, and that’s why last year he wasn’t ready to play and that was really hard for him last year," head coach Urban Meyer said recently. "But he’s come out and he’s not the same mistake guy and he’s…
  • The Hurry Up: Who is Kierre Hawkins, Ethan Tucky Shows Mad Skills, Jordan McNair introduction and More

    Jeremy Birmingham
    30 Sep 2014 | 4:45 pm
    WHO IS KIERRE HAWKINS? WHAT DOES HIS OFFER MEAN? This morning, the Buckeyes made another in-state offer to a pass catcher/potential tight end, Maple Heights' Kierre Hawkins. A 6-foot-4, 210 pounder, Hawkins is projected as a tight end by most, but according to those close to the situation at Ohio State indicate that he's more likely viewed as a wide receiver or H-back. Why is this important? Jake Hausmann, the country's top tight end in 2016, and Ohio State's pursuit of him. Months ago, it was believed by most (including myself) that Hausmann was an Buckeye "lock," but time and change surely…

    For much of the offseason, Ohio State talked of having a newfound cache of playmakers that would take its already powerful offense to even greater heights. It’s why — even when the team lost star quarterback Braxton Miller a week before its season opener — the Buckeyes maintained they could still compete for championships.  Names like Dontre Wilson, Ezekiel Elliott, Michael Thomas, Jalin Marshall, Curtis Samuel and Corey Smith were splashed into mainstream conversation like holy water on Palm Sunday.  Along with returning starters like Devin Smith and Jeff Heuerman, they would…

    Back on August 9th a tragic accident in a Sprint car race resulted in the death of Kevin Ward Jr.  At the time, suspicion was cast on Tony Stewart. At the time of the incident, Kevin Ward Jr. exited his car and moved into the lane of traffic to confront Tony.  Cars swerved out of his way, but Tony appeared to have accelerated and swerved into Kevin, who was then thrown by the tires of Tony's car.  On track medical personnel rushed to the scene, but Kevin Ward Jr. was pronounced dead from his injuries - blunt force trama - shortly afterward.

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

Beyond just the record volume of unique visitors, I think the most impressive component is how an average minute generated more consumption of ESPN digital content than an average day generated for other major sports television networks.

You get the dialogue below between myself and Brian Connolly, a former MBA classmate of mine and founder of Victus Advisors. Here is our take on ESPN’s suspension of Bill Simmons. Brian: First of all, let me preface this debate by saying that I’ve never been much of a “respect authority” and “toe the line” guy. There’s a reason I started my own company! So that side of me always gets a kick out of a public figure challenging the powers that be.

The conference addressed the sensitive, emotional topic (for some of us) of women in leadership roles, without pandering. To use the oft-quoted women-in-sports metaphor, they did not “pink it and shrink it.” I am happy to report that this year’s second annual conference content was just as good addressing timely…

    With the rise in recognition of digital currency, there can become the necessity to ensure all those coins are retained securely. The coins themselves are normally safe, even so, the genuine hazard to the wallet is the theft of a private key, or a password to obtain the private key. A wonderful way to retain coins protected is by utilizing “cold storage” to hold the private keys out of the reach of any person looking to get a hold of them.

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

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

    The Big Tip

  • True Happiness

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

    28 Sep 2014 | 6:53 pm
    The Red Sox played their last game of 2014 this afternoon before closing the book on a disappointing season.  Before the game started the Sox had a ceremony honoring Derek Jeter and then gave him the gift of having Clay Buchholz not only give up a hit to Jeter, but an RBI hit.  The Sox went down early to the Yankees and were playing behind the whole game.  The Sox went from worst to first back to worst, so let’s hope that means good things for next year. Clay Buchholz was on the mound for the Sox against Michael Pineda for the Yankees.  Pineda has not been back on the mound at…

The Red Sox cracked the scoreboard first when Capuano gave up an RBI single to Bryce Brentz in the 2nd.  Sox 1-0.  The Sox weren’t able to keep the lead long though as Dan Butler had some issues catching the knuckleball and Wright allowed two unearned runs to score as a result.

Maybe last year we’d be able to say that we’re going to take advantage of their precarious position, but with this years incarnation of the Reds looking quite different from the barnstorming side of the past season, it could very well be the Swiss taking advantage of our own on-field problems — as we’ve seen in recent weeks, there are more than enough of them…

  • An Introduction to Betting on Golf

    Richard Murray
    30 Sep 2014 | 6:41 am
    Betting on golf is hugely underrated by a lot of punters, which I believe comes from a lack of understanding of the many subtleties to this brilliant betting sport. The first thing that makes golf a great sport for betting on is the fact it is played all over the world and there are games being played almost the entire year. The European tour currently runs from January to November and takes in countries from all over the world including South Africa, India and Australia. The second great thing about golf is that almost every major event is televised. The European and PGA tours are very well…

But with so many models out there it can be difficult to choose the one that’s right for you.

  • Is the US Open Roger Federer’s Chance at Another Grand Slam?

    Richard Murray
    15 Aug 2014 | 1:45 am
    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.

Then the season started and it looked like I wasn’t wrong.  Utah goes out and dominates three teams including Michigan at Michigan.  Admittedly the offense wasn’t awesome at Michigan but the Wolverines don’t suck on defense and we still kicked so much butt that I was willing to over look it.

Washington State is a dangerous opponent when they are on their game as they were able to show last week in a close loss against a talented and highly ranked Oregon Ducks team.

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

    "I want Ronaldinho's autograph. I'm going to run out there and get it" Lots of fans want autographs from their favorite players, but few are willing to run onto the field in the middle of a game and get it. That is commitment. That is love. That is insanity. That works. One fan at the Queretaro/Atlas match ran onto the field and begged Ronaldinho to sign his Brazil jersey. The Brazilian was hesitant at first, but he gave in, signing it and making the fan the ultimate winner*. * Ultimate winner designation does not take into account being detained, arrested and charged.

    13 Aug 2014 | 7:26 pm
    Most transition offense plays are aggressive and quick, giving the defense no time to establish their defensive positions or protect certain areas of the court. Many teams with faster, smaller players or multiple guards are often better at transition offense as they can move the ball up the court more quickly.

    30 Sep 2014 | 9:08 pm
    Ronaldinho has now played four matches for Mexican club Queretaro and the excitement over his presence is holding strong. So strong that some people can't even wait until the end of a match to ask for his autograph. In the 51st minute of Queretaro's match against Atlas, a pitch invader in a Brazil shirt interrupted play when he sprinted up to Ronaldinho and handed him a pen. Ronaldinho, being the obliging fellow that he is, signed the man's shirt and sent him on his way, with a member of staff escorting him away. The match was then able to carry on, thankfully without everyone else in the…

    Professional sports franchises, like most businesses, do whatever they can to appeal to the most potential consumers possible. In most cases, this means that they shy away from making any statements or stands that could offend a sizable portion of their fan base. Few topics divide more than politics, and so teams typically reserve comments on social issues for special occasions in which a groundswell of support makes silence untenable. This phenomenon is certainly not unique to the NBA or other leagues, but it's apparent enough that any crossing of that line tends to stand out. An official…

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Oakland A's catcher Geovany Soto left the game with what the team said was a left thumb injury after a play at the plate with the Kansas City Royals' Eric Hosmer in the first inning. Hosmer attempted to score after A's pitcher Jon Lester picked off Billy Butler at first base. As Butler got into a rundown, Hosmer broke for home and was tagged for the third out of the inning. The tag from Soto was high up on Hosmer's body and Soto's glove ricocheted off Hosmer. Soto batted in the top of the second inning and struck out looking. He was replaced by Derek Norris behind the…

It was taken in the perfect light, snapped at the perfect time, Le said. As it turns out, it also appears to have been assisted by Human Growth Hormone. The UFC announced in a statement on its website Tuesday that Le tested positive for HGH following his Aug. 23 loss to Michael Bisping in Macau, China. Bisping won the fight by fourth-round TKO.

    My son’s basketball team just started their back to school session in one of the premier leagues in the Indianapolis area. I’m one of the coaches, and this will be the third session with this group of kids. This session will be one of the most fun but also most challenging for us. The first two sessions were played at the 1st/2nd grade level with 1st/2nd grade rules. Now we’re moving up to the big time. The kids are going into the 3rd grade and playing by 3rd grade rules. That means 10 foot rims versus 9 foot. It means all types of defenses are allowed — zone,…

    Things went a little better last week and now we start to get to the meat of the NFL schedule. Only three undefeated teams remain, with just one in action this week. Can the Eagles travel to San Francisco and have enough in the tank to make another comeback?  I'm not sure they can. Here are my picks.Overall: 31 - 17Green Bay (1 - 2) 23 @ Chicago (2 - 1) 24: The Packers are struggling, while the Bears are looking a little better. Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers is telling the Packer nation not to panic, but after today they may be doing it anyway.Buffalo (2 - 1) 17 @ Houston (2 - 1) 20: Both…

    Just like North Carolina, I'll be looking to rebound from a drubbing last week. Too many upset picks, too few actual upsets. And the upsets I didn't pick were the ones that transpired. But I'm resilient and hopefully should improve. Last Week:    11 - 7 (dismal performance)Overall:          68 - 25Wyoming (3 - 1) 13 @ (9) Michigan State (2 - 1) 30: Despite a poor performance in the second half against Oregon, Michigan State is still in the national mix.South Florida (2 - 2) 14 @ (19) Wisconsin (2 - 1) 34: Camp Randall is a tough…

    NFL:New York Giants (1 - 2) 20 @ Washington (1 - 2) 27:My Washington team takes on the New York Giants in a big NFC East battle. Both teams share an identical 1 - 2 record.  It looks as if Washington might be better without RGIII than they were with him, but Kirk Cousins maintains he's just keeping the starter's place warm for him when he's ready to return from an ankle injury. The Giants weren't even competitive until last week's surprise win over the Texans. Maybe Eli Manning is getting comfortable in their new offensive system. I hope not, which is why I'll stay with the home team…

    It was a much better week, but still some surprises kept me below my week one total of 12 correct picks. The Giants finally showed signs of life, just in time to play the Redskins in a big Thursday night battle. Kansas City did the same, emerging from what had been a major hibernation. And the Chargers made the long trip east, but still managed to hand the Bills their first loss of the season.Last Week: 11 - 5Overall:   31 - 17 Tampa Bay (0 - 2) 17 @ Atlanta (1 - 1) 34: Correct.

    There are some very compelling and important matchups in week three's NFL action.  It's virtually impossible for a team to start 0 - 3 and still make the playoffs, much less win a division. So that puts teams like New Orleans, Indianapolis and Kansas City on the hot seat. Two of those teams have been in conversations regarding the possibility of making the Super Bowl, Now it's desperation time.San Diego (1 - 1) 20 @ Buffalo (2 - 0) 24: If the Bills aren't the most surprising team in the league, they certainly are on the short list.

  • 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…

    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 their own, they launched an effort in the mid…

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

    Basketball season is around the corner and over the next several weeks we’ll rundown some of the biggest storylines facing the 2014-15 Michigan Wolverines. In this edition we look at sophomore wing forward Zak Irvin and whether he’s ready to make the leap in John Beilein’s offense.  (Photo: Dustin Johnston) Zak Irvin only played more than 20 minutes six times as a freshman, but he still had plenty of big games. Irvin knocked down 43 percent of his triples and always seemed to give Michigan an offensive jolt off the bench. But after an impressive freshman season, the game that best…

In perhaps the biggest surprise in week one the Miami Dolphins dominated the perennial division champs in the second half en route to a 33-20 victory.

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.

    This post was in my backlog for a long time, but there was always something more important to do. Meanwhile I’ve moved around the world and raised my fitness to the point it has never been before, my blood results were never better and my VO2Max sits around 60 (which is great considering almost 10 years of smoking). But, couple of years ago I got scared a little and had my heart tested.

    15 Sep 2014 | 6:56 pm “Time is not a coach’s friend.” These words from former NFL and NCAA coach Charles Coiner capture the dilemma faced by many football coaches every day. For most coaches, the biggest challenge is coming up with good strategic plays that will work year after year, while still finding time to actually train and develop players under their charge. This is a problem faced by both pros and amateur coaches, but more so by those who work as part-time coaches in the high school, small-college, and youth-league ranks.

Under Armour founder Kevin Plank, a former football player for the University of Maryland, worked in his grandmother’s basement in Washington, D.C. and traveled up and down the country selling his revolutionary new product out of the trunk of his car. Now almost two decades later and seemingly out of nowhere, Under Armour has managed to break into the top ranks of the sports apparel industry. Its sales have steadily increased, totaling $2.33 billion last year. How did it…

Since its emergence in the early 1900s, it has developed into an elaborate art through which people are able to express themselves. From a simple game where one performs various tricks with a football using different parts of the body, it has become a widespread sport and is currently being practiced by thousands of trained professionals the world over.

    They’ve been here before. They’ve seen 6-3 wash into 7-9 like a sandcastle getting hammered by high tide. They saw a division open up last year. Instead of walking through the passage way, they tried to time it and slide under the door as it closed like Indiana Jones. We know what happened. The experience might help them. It probably won’t. Through three games there’s little to separate this team from the one of yesteryear. The Lions beat three teams likely to finish third place in the division. They lost to one average-but-possibly-above-average team on the road. On…

    How should somebody classify Nate Fury? Some terms technically describe him, but they’re a little misleading. He’s a Tigers draft pick, but not the high-profile-type you’re thinking of. The Tigers drafted him in the 36th round. He’s a prospect, but only by the most general definition. He’s not making any top 100 lists in his career, even if he pitches well enough to reach the majors. He’s not even a potential James Mungro Memorial nominee. Ironically,  he’s too famous around these parts for that. I discovered him following the draft and have…

All Bowanko did is post a +1.2 rating according to Pro Football Focus and impress the coaching staff. “He showed his athleticism,” Jaguars coach Gus Bradley told the Florida-Times Union. “I thought for his first game, he did a nice job.” As for McClendon, he didn’t play a snap on offense, but did appear to get on the field on special…

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

First the blown saves came as an aberration, then they arrived as a symptom of a dead arm. Eventually they arrived simply because they had before. At its most basic, baseball is a child monitoring device. Nine players stand in the field, in easy view. Parents have a finite number of kids to watch at one time. The rest are safe in what most of the time is a chain-link cage. The plus is crowd control. The minus is downtime for the kids. When…

He also holds the world record for “longest career as sportscaster.” This is a man used to recognition for his work. He’s enshrined in the National Baseball Hall of Fame and the National…

    It doesn’t happen often, but Long Island added another native son to world of professional hockey last week.

  • It’s playoff time for the Washington Nationals, Zim tosses a No No

    Mark Buterbaugh
    28 Sep 2014 | 1:39 pm
    Jordan Zimmermann closed out the Washington Nationals 2014 regular season with a strong exclamation point, tossing his first career no-hitter.  Not only was it the first no-hitter of his career, but the first n0-hitter for the Washington Nationals franchise.  Zimmermann yielded just one walk and fanned 10 Marlins’ batters.  His first 4.2 innings were perfect, before issuing the walk.  What a historic way to end the regular season and charge into the MLB playoffs.   Zimmermann capped off his 2014 regular season with his 14th win, finishing 14-5 with a 2.66 ERA. Zimmermann capped off…

    The Washington Nationals have clinched the best record in the National League, and more importantly, home field advantage for the playoffs, behind a stellar mound performance from Doug Fister.   The home field advantage extends for the first two rounds of the playoffs.  For the final three season games, the Nats can breathe easy and relax. Fister tossed a complete game, allowing just 3 hits while whiffing nine Marlins to lead the Nationals to a 4-0 win in the double header opener today against Miami.  The win improved Fister’s season to 16-6 with a stellar 2.41 ERA.  The Nationals…

    Thank God for the Washington Nationals. Watching the Washington Redskins last night was a pretty clear indicator that there is nothing there to get excited about.   Undisciplined football.  Turning the ball over.  Getting routed and humiliated at home by NFC East rivals.  It’s just more of a redux of 2013, but with a different number behind center and a different head holding up the headset on the sideline.  For Washington DC sports fans, last night was a true depiction of what could have been a very long, frustrating, and humiliating fall season.  You know, just another normal…

    There we go.  There was our good ole 2013 Washington Redskins.  They’ve been fooling us a bit of late, but they returned to form last night, with frequent turnovers, a porous defense, and a complete lack of discipline.  That’s the team we have all come to know and loathe.  In our own home, division rival New York Giants came to play football, while Washington came to prove to us they aren’t any better than last year.  Was 2012 the fluke and 2013 the reality?  Evidence is strongly pointing that way.  You witnessed it last night.   Here we go . . .

    by:  L.C. May | @LCMay474     Photo Credit: Link Pre-season college football polls can be your best friend or worst enemy. Some may feel that the pre-season polls either hype up a team too much or do not give enough credit to the underdog. These polls are rarely correct especially when it comes to picking the number one team in the country. For example, the 2012 Associated Press pre-season poll had USC at the top of the rankings; yet, the Trojans finished the season unranked. In fact, 2004 was the last time AP pre-season #1 won the national championship (USC later had…

  • 11 Ways to Reduce Salt in Your Diet

    Photo by  Kiersten Koenig by Otesa Miles Sodium, which is necessary for the body, can cause great harm when consumed in excess. Found in table salt, foods, drinks and even medicines and supplements, too much sodium is a key factor in high blood pressure. High blood pressure can lead to kidney disease, heart disease and stroke. To decrease salt intake, here are a few tips: Reduce or, if possible, eliminate pre packaged foods. Microwave meals and convenient lunch boxes contain large amounts of sodium. Cut out cans. Canned foods usually are chock full of sodium, which adds flavor and acts as a…

Unfortunately, a 2012 study in the journal “Pediatrics” found that many children and teens consume too much salt or sodium which increases their risk of having high blood pressure. High blood pressure can lead to a range of heart diseases. Young people should consume no more than 1,500 to 2,300 milligrams of sodium daily. In fact, less is better. Many people think excess salt comes from the salt shaker. However, the main culprit is prepared and…

These little devices are light, detachable and easy to carry around. They are preferred by most shooters and you can only see the advantages completely once you have used a rifle scope. You can either go for a Nightforce NXS Scope or a Zeiss. But the question is which one will suit you. For this you need to know all that is required about various scope brands.

The Badgers set a Big Ten record by rushing for 644 yards. Melvin Gordon led the way with 253 yards and five touchdowns. Gordon had 179 yards and four touchdowns by halftime. The game was close early in the first half, but the Badgers broke the game open with back-to-back turnovers. Gordon scored on both…

(Mandatory Credit: Dilip Vishwanat/Getty Images) I was just a kid when I heard about the infamous O.J. Simpson scandal, even though it had been over for years. To me, the idea was alien. I didn’t understand how it was possible. He was a great football player, there were dozens of pictures of him smiling, scoring touchdowns and cheering with his teammates.

    22 Sep 2014 | 3:58 am
    Gang Green squares off against yet another quality NFC North opponent on Monday Night. This time Da Bears coming off their amazing comeback victory against 49ers visit the Jets. The key matchup of this game is Da Bears offensive line keeping Jay Cutler off the ground. If he can stay clean, Cutler can tear apart the Jets young and battered secondary. The Jets have to take advantage of a weak Bears run defense. They also can not settle for field goals, the Jets must score touchdowns to win this game. Look for Da Bears to target tight end Martellus Bennett and running back Matt Forte in the…

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

    Embroiled in a national debate over a domestic abuse problem, the NFL rolled along to week two. Roger Goodell must be praying for Sundays to zip by as fans immerse themselves in the action instead of the growing off the field issues. Week two saw more of the craziness that week one brought as three prominent teams: Seahawks, Saints, Colts were upset in the waning moments of their games. The Packers, Eagles, and Bears also overcame multiple score deficits to win their games. The most talked about game after week two commenced was played in Lambeau Field as the Green Bay Packers rallied from an…

    This week’s Gridiron Rundown features NFL Kickoff Weekend. Yet again in what seems like a never ending, pulse pounding, opening slate of games. The week started off in what seems like the inevitable quest of a budding dynasty in the Emerald City as the defenseless Packers had their asses handed to them by the defending Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks. It’s too bad Green Bay general manager Ted Thompson and head coach Mike McCarthy can’t clone ten more Clay Matthews replace the sorry sack of players they currently have on defense.

It will not get any easier going up against one of the more ferocious defensive lines in the league at Detroit on Monday Night Football. Led by Ndamukong Suh this group should terrorize Manning all night. New offensive co-ordinator Ben McAdoo’s scheme is tailor made to take advantage of the Lions defense.

    Something marvelous has happened to me. I was transported to the seventh heaven. There sat all the gods assembled. As a special dispensation, I was granted the favor of making a wish. “What do you want?” asked Mercury. … “Choose — but only one thing.” For a moment I was bewildered; then I addressed the gods, saying: “My esteemed contemporaries, I choose one thing — that I may always have the laughter on my side.” Not one of the gods said a word; instead, all of them began to laugh. From that I concluded that my wish was granted and decided that the gods knew how…

    Fifteen years ago, Mike Martz had a radical notion: “Why does the run have to set up the pass?”That, according to Sports Illustrated’s Peter King, was the question the new St. Louis Rams offensive coordinator posed to his head coach, Dick Vermeil, as they prepared for the coming NFL season in June 1999. It was to be Vermeil’s third in St. Louis, and judging from the press clippings, probably his last if things didn’t change in a hurry.8 Over the previous two seasons, Vermeil had coached the Rams to 23 losses and only nine wins, with an offense that ranked 23rd out of 30 NFL teams in…

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

The first few games of the season are predictive in part because losing games makes it harder to make the playoffs, and in part because they tell us something about the strength of the teams that lost them.That said, “Correlation is not…

Answer: They were all starting quarterbacks who were injured during the regular season and who were ultimately unable to reclaim the starting spot from their backups. Their backups, by the way, were Brett Favre, Kurt Warner, Tom Brady, and Ben Roethlisberger, all of whom would eventually appear in multiple Super Bowls and end up hoisting the Lombardi Trophy. The point is, sometimes it takes an unfortunate injury for the best player on your team to see snaps. The quarterback position is particularly…

    I guess the Royals decided that they didn’t need to show up after they clinched a spot in the playoffs. They’re wrong, and wasted a perfectly good opportunity to force a game 163, but if you think about it, maybe a game 163 wouldn’t be the greatest thing for the Royals. Ned Yost would’ve used James Shields for game 163, and Jason Vargas for the wildcard game. I shudder when I think about Jason Vargas pitching in an elimination game. In the month of September, Vargas has a 6.57 ERA in five starts. But that’s all a moot point now. Today, the Royals got win number 89 thanks to a…

    To me, former Manchester United player, Phil Neville, was foolish when he said that the Red Devils must spend £100m to be title contenders. Neville was obviously referring to the weakness in United’s backline that need to be addressed after thee 5-3 defeat at the hands of newly promoted, Leicester City. He told BBC Radio 5 Live: I think there’s another two transfer windows of similar amounts of money needed – maybe £100m – before they can even think about winning the title. There are still key positions in the team that need filling. I think the centre-back position is obviously…

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

    Wayne Rooney has “no doubts” Manchester United will go on to be successful under Louis van Gaal despite the Red Devils currently toiling in 12th place after winning just one of their five Premier League matches this season. United are also out of the Capital One Cup and have no European football to enjoy after finishing seventh last campaign. Van Gaal‘s installation as manager has brought in world-class players—with Angel Di Maria and Radamel Falcao among those joining the club—but hasn’t improved results that were also failing under David Moyes.

    UFC fighter Yolo Romero created quite a stir at UFC 178 with what some are calling “stoolgate” as the fighter refused to get out of his stool following the second round, allowing himself time to recover.

Romero clearly intentionally took more than the allotted time to get up from his stool, and his coaches took their sweet time instructing their fighter to get up. Because of this, Romero was able to recover…
