The Rise and Fall of CONCACAF

The start of the 21st century was good for CONCACAF. The United States made the World Cup quarterfinal in 2002, only narrowly losing to eventual runners-up Germany. In 2005, Mexico and the US reached fifth and eighth, respectively, in the FIFA rankings. And then there was 2009. At South Africa’s Confederations Cup, the United States...

The two kings of Oklahoma

If you happen to be a fan of a cellar-dwelling NFL franchise, such as the New York Jets, San Francisco 49ers, or my beloved Buffalo Bills, you have heard two names all offseason in an attempt to take your mind off the gruesome season your team is about to undergo: Josh Rosen and Sam Darnold,...

Tracy McGrady: A testament to ability over production

This past Friday, the Basketball Hall of Fame inducted Tracy McGrady, honoring a remarkable player with the sports equivalent of putting the tastiest possible cherry on top of a career sundae. Much of the chatter from the talking heads of the sports world over the last couple weeks has sought to put his tantalizing yet...

Why Liverpool should have sold Philippe Coutinho

The summer of 2017 will likely be remembered as the summer that changed soccer transfers forever. Paris Saint-Germain’s newest attraction, Neymar Jr., was purchased from perennial superpower FC Barcelona for an earth-shattering €222 million ($267 million), while German contenders Borussia Dortmund sold wünderkind Ousmane Dembélé for a whopping €105 million ($126.3 million). The deal for...

Rhys Hoskins is bringing excitement and hope to the Phillies

By the time Rhys Hoskins had his first hit of the game on Saturday night, the matchup between the Marlins and Phillies was over. It was the second inning, and the Marlins were up 3-0. The outcome of the game was just as decided a few innings later when Hoskins hit a home run in...

All or Nothing: fights like Mayweather vs. McGregor could be bad news for UFC

The outcome was fairly predictable, but the Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather superfight ended on a positive note for all parties involved. McGregor retained his pride with a respectable performance, and Mayweather retired with 50-0 record. Despite months of big stage trash talk, including a multi-city press tour, both fighters broke the antagonistic facade post-match,...

As recent 2nd overall NBA draft pick Lonzo Ball was getting ready to head off to UCLA for his freshman year of college, he and two his younger brothers, both UCLA commits, began to make waves as a family of basketball prodigies. Their father, LaVar, who prides himself as the architect of their success, has…

Ten years ago, if I said to you, “Last week we retweeted a bunch of really bad takes made by the Process- doubters from the past few years,” you’d probably look at me like I was insane.  At this particular moment, however, that sentence makes perfect sense, and anyone who spends time perusing the weird…
