College Football’s Coaching Carousel: Grading the Seven Biggest Hirings

After the final full slate of games in a college football season, a host of head coaches at blueblood universities are handed their walking papers.

Is This the Year for Wichita State?

The mere utterance of “Wichita State” is enough to strike fear into the hearts of NCAA Blue Bloods, and not just because of their  petrifying mascot. The once-cute Shockers have transformed into a perennial March Madness contender, using a stifling defense to fluster even the most organized offenses in college basketball. Wichita State’s high-profile tournament...

These games won’t change though, so it’s...

The Possibilities for Giancarlo Stanton

The 2017 National League MVP, Giancarlo Stanton of the Miami Marlins, has stirred up numerous trade rumors this winter. The Marlins’ new ownership, which features Yankees legend Derek Jeter, is looking to move the slugger, as the franchise undergoes a rebuild process. The only issue is  while Stanton’s 59 home runs and 132 RBIs make...

Mike Mussina Belongs in the Hall of Fame

When Aaron Boone launched the first knuckleball he saw from Tim Wakefield into the left field stands to win Game 7 of the 2003 ALCS, he vaulted himself into Yankees lore for eternity.

Yankees-Red Sox is kid’s stuff. Duke-UNC is a joke. Don’t even talk to me about Warriors-Cavs. There is only one great rivalry in global sports, one that overshadows all the rest. One that was born from a religious curse and bred through constant heartache. I’m talking, of course, about the Dublin-Mayo rivalry in men’s Gaelic…

Since the team’s founding in 1883, only two Phillies pitchers have thrown perfect games. In June of 1964, Jim Bunning did not let up a single baserunner against the Mets, and, in May of 2010, Roy Halladay sat down every member of the Marlins he saw. I must admit that I didn’t really watch either…
