Iowa Basketball: Looking ahead to 2015-16

Iowa’s successful season came to an end last weekend with a loss to Gonzaga in the NCAA tournament, but it’s not too early to think about how the Hawkeyes will fare in 2015-16. The toughest challenge will be replacing the production of Aaron White. White led the team in points, rebounds, and steals this season, and will go down as one of the greatest Hawkeyes ever. Iowa got...

The Detroit Red Wings (40-23-12) are playing with fire and if they aren’t careful they are going to get burned out of the playoffs. This week the Red Wings claimed three out of eight points available to them, while their Atlantic division rivals Boston Bruins embraced the opportunity to close down the gap on the Wings by getting five out of six points. Luckily, the Ottawa Senators...

Matt Reynolds has inside track for New York Mets 2B job

As you read that title, you probably thought, “What about Daniel Murphy?” Murphy is the starting second basemen for the New York Mets, but as we get closer to opening day, it is looking more and more like he will start the season on the Disabled List. Murphy’s latest progress had him batting in a minor-league game with no running. However, the Mets can backdate his stint on...

Dwayne Wade Continues To Cement Legacy in Miami

Dwayne Wade just keeps evolving. When Wade entered the NBA in 2003, he was a dynamic slashing guard that endured hit after hit with his consistent assaults at the rim. It was this wreckless style of play that eventually led to a NBA championship and finals MVP in 2006. In the years that followed, Wade began refining his game to lessen the violent contact he had subjected himself...

How Khris Middleton became the Milwaukee Bucks biggest x-factor

The Milwaukee Bucks are down two points with 10.8 seconds left in the game when point guard Jerryd Bayless wins a jump ball against Miami Heat forward Michael Beasley.  23 year old Khris Middleton retrieves the ball and quickly feeds Bayless in the top corner of the perimeter, where he cuts to the lane for a contested right handed lay-up.  With 1.8 seconds left, Bucks center Zaza...

Carey Price for the Vezina and Hart

On Saturday, March 28, the Montreal Canadiens clinched a spot in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Throughout the 2014-2015 season, the Canadiens have been a solid team in the NHL. There have been a number of reasons for the Montreal’s success this year. For one, their General Manager, Marc Bergevin, has done a good job managing his team and turning it into a Playoff contender. The Canadiens’...

Atlanta Falcons: Draft pick at stake

The Atlanta Falcons are preparing for the worst, as they are facing a severe penalty for pumping fake crowd noise through their sound system during the 2013 and 2014 seasons. At the NFL Owners meetings last week, this was an issue of importance and the Falcons’ brass was informed by the league that their punishment is forthcoming. These are more than simply allegations, as the...

Hooked 'em: Why Texas had to fire Rick Barnes

After 17 seasons Rick Barnes has been fired as Texas Basketball’s head coach. The decision comes after a mediocre 20-14 (8-10 Big-12) season including a trip to the NCAA Tournament. Steve Patterson, U.T.’s athletic director, made the call only a year after dismissing head football coach Mac Brown. Both men fired for eerily similar reasons they both had talented players, vast...

UCLA Basketball Dominated in the Paint as Gonzaga Advances

Bryce Alford guarding Kevin Pangos When finally matched up against one of the elite teams in the tournament, UCLA showed it did not have what it takes to hang with the best. Gonzaga’s size in their frontcourt proved to be too much for the Bruins to handle. Gonzaga’s Przemek Karnowski played his best game of the tournament by scoring 18 points and grabbing 9 rebounds. The 7...

Detroit Lions Draft Needs: Offensive Lineman

In my opinion, after a franchise quarterback, offensive lineman are the most important roster spots to fill to produce a winning NFL team. An offense can’t operate without a good offensive line. They are the unsung heroes of every great NFL team. The Patriots have had a great offensive line for years, but Tom Brady is the player who receives all the glory. If you can’t protect...

Jameis Winston may be the smart pick, but is he the right pick?

Tampa Bay Buccaneers fans hope to get Jameis Winston for 2015 It is apparent the the Tampa Bay Buccaneers need a do-over. They fell flat on their faces after having so much hope and expectation going into the 2014 season. The reward of being horrendous is the number one overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. Now, look at the position the Buccaneers are in with the pick, and all the...

Philadelphia Phillies: Bold prediction for 2015

The Philadelphia Phillies will explode the core of their team and be the worst team in the NL East. While the Phillies’ terrible team play and attempts to trade some of their major contributors is obviously not a recipe for success, but I believe they will “shoot for the moon” and pull a full-on Sam Hinkie (shout out to Sixers fans that are still hanging in there). They are...

Louisville Basketball: Three reasons the Cardinals fell to Michigan State in the Elite Eight

Tom Izzo In what felt like a down year for Louisville basketball, it only made sense that Rick Pitino would make another deep run in March. Fittingly enough, that run ended against another spring time wizard in Michigan State coach Tom Izzo. Feelings of surprise were replaced by feelings of intensity and familiarity for Cardinals fans when tipoff rolled around earlier today. In...

Ten reasons why Draymond Green will win Defensive POY

He is the defensive backbone to the NBA’s best team. He is the stretch four forward that every team desires. He is to defense what Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson are to shooting three pointers. Save the time and expedite the resources because the 2014-2015 Defensive Player of the Year award should already have Draymond Green’s name engrained on its plaque. Through inimitable...

Washington Redskins: Should They Take Mariota?

It has long been dismissed as something that will never happen, but a thought that really made a lot of sense. It has now been reported that the Washington Redskins are interested in, and will work out quarterback Marcus Mariota prior to the draft. The team holds the 5th overall pick in this year’s draft and aren’t tied to any of the quarterbacks on their roster. Most of the...

New York Giants: Is Odell Beckham ready to carry the load?

It was the one of the greatest rookie seasons we had ever seen. The name Randy Moss got tossed around a few times while Odell Beckham Jr put up over 1,300 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns in as many games. It’s frightening to think what the LSU product could be capable of with a full training camp and a fully healthy offseason. On the other hand, plenty of pressure and expectations...

Jacksonville Jaguars: Are they spending too much?

The Jacksonville Jaguars have acquired a lot of great players during this free agency period, but there’s a huge monetary cost that comes with it. The Jets and the Jaguars have been the teams to spend the most money so far and they have added some impact players.  Signing top free agents adds talent and depth to the roster, but have the Jags overextended themselves financially...
