Creighton Basketball: Bluejays get first Big East win

The Creighton basketball team has been struggling as of late. With an 0-8 start in the Big East, the Bluejays are no where near the achievements of last year. Given, the Big East is one of the hardest conferences in the nation. Their API ranking is second only behind the Big 12 which has six ranked teams in it.

Detroit Red Wings: Impact of waiving Brian Lashoff

A day after the Detroit Red Wings (28-12-9) got embarrassed by the Tampa Bay Lightning, 5-1, general manager Ken Holland decided it was time to make some changes.

Washington Redskins: Keys to Improving for the 2015 Season

Well Redskins fans, another sub-par season has come and gone. A measly 4 wins and 12 losses was produced under the leadership of rookie coach Jay Gruden.

Indiana Basketball: Hoosiers need to step it up on the road

After last week’s performance against Maryland, I feel like I am watching a completely different Indiana basketball team. What seemed like a little bit of hope for the Hoosiers has quickly waned into inconsistent play and resulted in two losses on the road—something that cannot happen if the Hoosiers want to find themselves at the top of the conference again. Losing on the road...
