The state of the Philadelphia Eagles defense

Ever since the fateful “Dream Team” off-season in 2011, the Philadelphia Eagle’s defense has largely under-performed. The team has consistently tried to patch up their defense with free agent signings and acquisitions but this hasn’t really worked out. The Eagles have not even finished in the top half for points allowed in the NFL since 2011. This past off-season, the team...

Michigan Basketball narrowly escapes vs. Minnesota

Even when the 3’s come easy, the rest of the game does not. Michigan made 14 three pointers against Minnesota to snap a two game losing streak and get a much needed Big Ten victory.

Derrick Walton Jr. enjoyed a career...

New York Knicks should dump the triangle

To begin, the triangle offense is incredibly effective when operated properly. However, the man who ran the offense impeccably is no longer interested in coaching. With that said, Phil Jackson, unless interested in stepping down to the bench, should consider dumping the triangle offense when interviewing coaching prospects this summer. There’s too many options on the market to...

Evaluating Brooklyn Nets tradable assets

The Brooklyn Nets are one of the worst teams in the NBA this season with a record of 14-39. When looking at the team, most would think the organization should hold a fire sale. However, owner Mikhail Prokhorov recently said he is not looking to trade the team’s two best players, center Brook Lopez and forward Thaddeus Young. This seems counterintuitive. The team has no draft pick...

Detroit Pistons: Thanks for the Memories, Chauncey

I can remember my first Detroit Pistons game like it was yesterday. Well, the end of it at least. It was March of 2003, and Detroit trailed the Golden State Warriors by 1 point with just under 6 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter. The inbounds pass went to Chauncey Billups. Everybody was waiting for him to attack the basket, but he wouldn’t. He dribbled the ball from left...

Philadelphia Eagles: Forget Sanchize, Paxton Lynch warrants attention

In March of 2015 the Philadelphia Eagles rewarded Mark Sanchez’s performance as a back-up quarterback in 2014 with a two-year deal worth $16 million. In 2015, Sanchez was the second-highest paid backup quarterback, earning $5.5 million to only Robert Griffin III who earned a whopping $16 million. But, 2014 was good for Sanchez being as during his first season in Philly he wound...

Molly Huddle – Track and Field’s relentless athlete

What is it that even deems an athlete one of the greats? Maybe, it’s the number of wins they have to their name. Then again, a win doesn’t take into account the competition. Maybe, it’s the awards and accolades. Then again, awards and accolades disappear in time and their value fluctuates. In my mind, there’s really only one way to even get an idea, and it’s by meeting...
