Why the Brooklyn Nets should pursue Robin Lopez

Robin Lopez As a result of the Joe Johnson trade in 2012, the Brooklyn Nets will not have a pick in this year’s draft until late in the first round. Because of this, and considering that this year’s draft class is not as deep as previous year’s, the Nets will need to look toward free agency in order to address any roster needs. Nonetheless, unlike the draft, this year’s...

Oklahoma Football: Analyzing the Running Backs

Samaje Perine In 2014, the Oklahoma football team relied heavily on the running game. It was the team’s best option as the passing game wasn’t dependable enough due to the inconsistent quarterback play. The team ranked 11th in the nation in rushing yards and hopes to continue that success in 2015. With many talented running backs on the roster you can expect new Offensive...

The fan base in Boise also known as “Bronco Nation” is all too familiar with the opening game hype.

Seattle Seahawks position rank: defense edition

Last week I ranked the Seattle Seahawks by offensive position. This week I take a look at the defense. 1. Safety I decided to split up the Legion of Boom here. While the cohesive unit is better than the sum of its parts, I figured I’d look at corner and safety positions separately. It’s a tough call, but the safety position tops the defensive ranking. I have yet to see a better...

French Open Women's preview: Who will make the quarters?

The road to the Roland Garros on the women’s side proved to be as sporadic as ever. Serena Williams lost her first match of the season at Madrid to Petra Kvitova (who she had previously never lost to). After a stellar season that included three titles thus far, Simona Halep was turned back in the first round of Madrid. And after a mini-skid of back-to-back first round losses...

Miami Dolphins: Looking at Running Back Jay Ajayi

Running back Jay Ajayi Bosie State University star Jay Ajayi was drafted by the Miami Dolphins in the fifth round of this year’s NFL draft. Finding a running back of this caliber in the fifth round is a steal for the Dolphins.

Ten worst Washington Redskins’ Quarterbacks in last ten years

In honor of David Letterman’s retirement, I have compiled a top ten list of the worst Washington Redskins’s quarterbacks in the last ten years. Not that naming terrible players from a dysfunctional franchise is any honor to you Dave, but that’s all I got.

Minnesota Twins: Hunter, Molitor leading success

To put it simply, the Minnesota Twins have had a rough time the past few years. From 2011 to 2014, they never won more than 70 games. They were consistently at or near the bottom of the American League’s Central Division, and at no point were they ever even close to contending. The farm system that they had relied so heavily on had seemingly dried up. The dynamic duo of Joe Mauer...
