MLB Contenders and Pretenders

As the second half rolls on, the postseason push of the Major League Baseball season begins to heat up. In the dog days of August, we start to see who will remain when fall comes around, and who will fade out of the playoff chase. In other words, it becomes more clear who are the...

Andres Iniesta: El Ilusionista, la Leyenda

To the casual soccer fan, the name Andres Iniesta will be forever associated with Spanish dominance because of two touches. The first wasn’t great, as instead of bringing down Cesc Fabregas’ pass, he popped it up, but the second was sublime, volleying past Dutch goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg. He crowned Spain as world champions with his...

Punt the Pigskin: Why We Should Stop Watching Football

Football season is coming. And with that, I am here to bring you the most important analysis you need before the NFL season even begins: you should stop watching football.

Champions League Reactions: Semifinals, Part 2

Let me get the scores out of the way, because I want to depart from the usual formula.   Real Madrid 2-2 Bayern Munich (4-3 agg.) Ulreich messed up, and Bayern’s front three couldn’t finish. Real had no business moving on, but they’re in the final. Good for them. Roma 4-2 Liverpool (6-7 agg.) Liverpool...

The Case for Morocco to Host the 2026 World Cup

As amazing as the Super Bowl, NCAA Tournament – Women’s if we’re being real –  and Winter Olympics were, the greatest sporting event of the year is still two months away. In June, 32 nations will face off in the World Cup for the title of the greatest international soccer team. The World Cup offers...

NBA Playoffs First Round Reactions and Look-Aheads

The first round of the 2018 NBA playoffs was much more exciting than last year’s. Lower seeds pulled off upsets, multiple series went to 6+ games, and DID LEBRON LOSE? No, just like I said. It took a lot of injuries and mishaps for the playoffs to become as chaotic as they seem to be...

If you’ve read any of my College Basketball articles up to this point, you’ll know that I consistently invoke a man named Kenneth Pomeroy, colloquially known as KenPom, for my sophomoric analysis. Pomeroy’s website, KenPom.com, is a predictive measure using statistics such as offensive efficiency, defensive efficiency, and strength of schedule to generate a relative…

On Sunday, Carlos Vela was on one of his long, mazy runs in the 74th minute against the Seattle Sounders, creating both danger for his team as well as relief from the pressure that the Sounders mounted in the second half. As he turned the corner, Seattle’s homegrown player Handwalla Bwana slid, but came nowhere…

In what has been a fairly tame basketball season thus far, last weekend and this past week have been full of upsets. Villanova, Duke, UVA, and Purdue were all top 5 teams that fell victim to upsets over that span of time. The AP rankings have since changed, and will likely change again as a…

You’ve heard of the blue bloods, the lottery picks, and the hall-of-fame coaches in men’s college basketball.
