The Vermont Catamounts: This Year’s Sleeper Team

You’ve heard of the blue bloods, the lottery picks, and the hall-of-fame coaches in men’s college basketball. And most recently, you’ve probably been alerted to the FBI Investigation that has rocked the sport. From November to late February, there is no shortage of commentary in college hoops, yet the storylines are usually recycled and don’t...

Trade Deadline Moves Set the Lakers up for Success

Last Thursday, the trade deadline sent the NBA into a frenzy. Most notably, the Cleveland Cavaliers completed a near-complete roster overhaul that hasn’t been seen in recent memory, especially for a team competing for a championship. In an effort to secure LeBron James’ fourth ring, the Cavs unloaded Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Channing Frye, Dwyane...

Cleveland Cavaliers Receive Much Needed Upgrades

The Cleveland Cavaliers have completely exploded. When Kyrie Irving requested a trade last summer, the balancing act that LeBron and the Cavaliers’ front office have been playing for years finally came to the brink of its death. The team lost one of their big three, and ended up trading him for the package of Isaiah...

New Lions, Who This?: Three Keys to Success

The Detroit Lions made several moves this off season to improve their coaching staff, hopefully putting them in contention for a title.

For the first time in 2018, the Tobacco Road Rivalry takes the stage. On Thursday at 8 p.m., No. 9 Duke takes on No. 21 North Carolina in Chapel Hill. As always, there is far more at stake at the Dean E. Smith Center than another victory in the win column. The two schools are...

NHL Halftime Report

It’s hard to imagine, but Tampa is a hockey town, as last week’s NHL All Star Game proved. While All Star Games across major sports are essentially a game for the athletes to pal around with no sense of competition, the introduction of the 3 on 3 format has given rise to the best play...

As the NFL season creeps towards the forefront of American sports yet again, the only certainty is that nothing is certain. Each Sunday brings a team or player out of obscurity, creating regional heroes and national sensations only to send them back into the shadows the next week. Do you remember the Colts’ incredible playoff…

If the U.S. soccer team were a living room, goalkeeper Tim Howard, on the squad since 2007, would be a couch— but not like the beer-soaked couch that’s travelled with you since back in the day. He’s more like a fine leather sectional , both sturdy and stylish, something that’s on every homeowner’s wish list….

It felt like Christmas morning. It was finally here, the single most important day of the year, the day I for which I had waited the entirety of an agonizing, regretful year. It was a day when dreams would be born and crushed, friendships broken, and dynasties created. It was a day for champions, for…

While the NL only has one divisional race closer than five games, the wild card spots are so up for grabs that the Marlins, I repeat, the Marlins, are in the hunt with a record of 65-67.  Although we all know it ain’t over til it’s over, let’s take a look at the current state…

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…
