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. This same day in the National Football League has been dubbed “Black Monday.” Unfortunately, for many college football coaches, they don’t even last the night after the final game. At...

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...

NFL Week 13 Winners and Losers

The NFL regular season is winding down, and there are many playoff races which remain tight. The AFC West, AFC South, NFC South, and Wild Card spots are all up for grabs.

Way Too Early World Cup Predictions Part 1

On Friday, the field was set for the 2018 World Cup in Russia. As a result of a new configuration for the draw pots (by ranking instead of confederation), groups were supposed to be more “balanced,” and as a result, we have more soft groups than ever before. 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. He also apparently put himself into the discussion for Yankees manager, but that’s a subject for a different article. If you ask...

The American League: One Month Out

With every passing day on the slow march toward October, the American League playoff contenders look more and more clear-cut. Here’s my take on the AL heading into September: AL East At this point, it’s Baltimore’s division to lose. The O’s keep picking up steam and lead the second-place Yankees by six games as of…

Formula 1: British Grand Prix Re-Cap (Ouch, Kimi!)

Ouch is right. After just four corners, Scuderia Ferrari driver Kimi Räikkönen, the Iceman himself, took a turn wide, bumped back onto the track, and crashed at 150 miles per hour. The crash was immense. It’s said he experienced more than 47G—47 times the force of gravity—as he slammed into the wall, taking Williams Martini…

This year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans looked to be an awesome one. Narrower tires. Hybrid prototypes galore. Five-time consecutive winner Audi was back with the R18 e-tron quattro. Challenger and last year’s second-place Toyota wanted the trophy. Most importantly, Porsche was returning to Le Mans after a 16-year absence: In recent years, Le Mans has…

SPOILERS AHEAD! Quelle course et un Grand Prix fantastique! Even for casual viewers, the 70-lap Montreal Grand Prix at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve was quite a spectacle. For the first half or so of the race, Montreal looked to be another cut-and-dry Mercedes one-two finish. But, as Eric Cantor is well aware, nothing ever goes according…

Many power rank teams, but few rank cities.  Halftime hopes to change that.  This ranking will look at the five cities which have had the best month in sports, and the one which can take comfort in the fact that at least it is not Cleveland.  It will be biased, arbitrary and confusing, but maybe…

For a while there, it looked like the Washington Wizards may have had a shot at making the Eastern Conference Finals. But, it was not to be. This season, for Washington, ended short of the proposed goal of every franchise: a championship; but here in the Nation’s Capital, we’re still celebrating. On paper, the 2013-2014…

Every baseball fan has at least one particular missed call that sticks in their mind and has no plan on ever leaving. For me it came in game two of the 2005 American League Championship Series between the Los Angeles Angels and the Chicago White Sox. Bottom of the ninth, two outs, game tied at…

The NFL draft is fast approaching and if you ever tune in to ESPN or a similar sports network you’ve surely seen the hype machines talking up or down certain prospects.

Because sports fans are obsessed with categories, we tend to associate each basketball position with a specific set of skills and responsibilities. The center towers over the rest and sparks fastbreaks by grabbing rebounds, while the power forward provides the muscle of the team. The shooting guard hits jump-shots and plays great defense, while the…
