Since Fran McCaffery took over as Iowa’s coach in 2010, Iowa has played some tight games against good competition only to come up short in the final minutes. This season it is the entire second half that has been problematic for the Hawkeyes...

There is much at stake for the Bird Gang today. With a win against Seattle (10-4), the Arizona Cardinals (11-3) clinch the NFC West, the top seed in the NFC, and home-field throughout the playoffs.

St. Louis Rams: what is next for 2015?

James Laurinaitis The St. Louis Rams in 2014 have had their challenges. The Rams had some bad luck with some injuries, play calling, and getting players ready to compete on a week to week basis.

Philadelphia Eagles: Playoff hopes dwindle with loss to Redskins

A side-by-side comparison of the box score minus team names and final score would indicate a fairly dominate performance by the team that had 190 more total yards, 9 more first downs, a larger time of possession, and an equal number of turnovers.

Fantasy Baseball: Evaluating San Diego’s crowded outfield

Are the Oakland A’s prepping for a big move?

Orlando Magic: Is Tobias Harris an All-Star?

The Orlando Magic recently put an advertisement out prompting fans to vote forward Tobias Harris into the All-Star game. At first, I laughed. Tobias Harris? I mean he’s evolved into a solid rotation player but All-Star? Surely the Magic’s marketing team had lost their minds. Then, I started to investigate. After a thorough investigation, I have changed my mind. 22 year-old Tobias...

Denver Nuggets: up and down Nuggets get huge lift from Robinson vs. Clippers

The Denver Nugget’s start to the 2014-15 season has been a lot like recently released sequels to some of our most beloved films; they aren’t good, and somehow actually fall just short of reaching our already low expectations. Like “Dumb and Dumber To” and “Anchorman 2″ before it, the Nuggets have shown glimpses of promise, but ultimately failed to reach the standards...
