Odds are, your bracket has fallen apart.  Maybe you had Duke in the Final Four.  Maybe you had Wichita St. proving all of its critics wrong and winning it all.  Maybe, you had a perfect first day bracket until New Mexico St. had to go ruin an incredible comeback in the night’s final matchup and…

As the NBA season begins to wind down, the teams like Philadelphia and Milwaukee that have successfully gone about demolishing their rosters have distinguished themselves in the race to tank. Other squads like Detroit and Cleveland now find themselves in the NBA’s unenviable middle ground. They’re not bad enough to get a valuable draft pick,…

When it comes right down to it, the Croatians are a fun team to watch. Sadly, despite putting on good shows, they have performed less than admirably these past 12 months against national squads like Scotland, Switzerland, and Serbia (something about S countries gets ‘em). Despite faltering, the Mediterranean’s boast an impressive squad and will…

Michael Vick’s Second Chance is good for the NFL

By:

The New York Jets recently released former AFC champion contending quarterback Mark Sanchez and signed former Eagles quarterback Michael Vick. Both these moves were hopefully made with the sole purpose of fixing what was essentially a dumpster fire at the quarterback position. However, just like the signing of TIm Tebow, many will wonder if the…

Jabari Parker does not lose often. During his four years of high school, it only happened fifteen times, nine of which came during his freshman year; otherwise, Parker accumulated 118 wins and four state championships with Chicago-based Simeon High School, earning him the opportunity to attend (on athletic scholarship) any university in the country. Parker…

Superstars come in many shapes and sizes. They are big, small, smart, stupid, arrogant, and some of them are even insane. The one thing they have always had in common, however, is their ability to make us turn on our TVs and forget about everything except for what they show. They teach us how to…

Just about every prolific college quarterback of the past decade has had a great wide receiver. Tim Tebow had Percy Harvin and Aaron Hernandez, Robert Griffin III had Josh Gordon, Brandon Weeden had Justin Blackmon, and Ken Dorsey had Andre Johnson just to name a few.
