WR Danny Anthrop: Purdue Boilermakers’ best conditioned player?

Purdue Boilermakers Coach Darrell Hazell was asked at Big Ten Media Day who the three fastest guys on his team were. He mentioned senior wide receiver Danny Anthrop and senior cornerback Anthony Brown without hesitation. Hazell then paused for awhile and said maybe freshman Evyn Cooper.

I guess finally beating Jose Mourinho, coupled with the Gunners preseason version of a treble, goes a long way with the respondents of this poll. Arsene Wenger has certainly been under fire quite a bit from Arsenal fans.

Premier League predictions: Man United 3rd, Chelsea champions

Time to make predictions for the 2015-16 Premier League season. I’m amazed by how many I got right last year, because this is definitely not an exact science. All predictions. not matter who makes them, should be taken with a huge grain of salt. Especially this season as we’ve seen an evening up in the top four. A few teams have closed the gap on Chelsea. Last year I picked...

Jabril Peppers, Wayne Lyons give Michigan Wolverines future NFL DBs

The Hullabalooza over Jim Harbaugh overshadows everything else that’s a part of Michigan Wolverines football this season, and that’s a shame because we have plenty of other topics to discuss. No, the Wolverines won’t be that good. They were 5-7 last year and their incoming recruiting class was ravaged by the regime change. But they do have a world class secondary, led by their...

Pedro to Man United narrative gathering even more momentum

Having attended numerous events in this format I can tell you that the athlete shows up expecting to do nothing but pitch whatever product it is they’re selling. The publicists and agents expect the same thing. However, that’s just not realistic. It’s not the media’s...
