The Return Of The Bundesliga: Matchday 26 recap

After two months of waiting, the Bundesliga returned to action this past Saturday. With all nine games being played behind closed doors, home-field advantage seemed to fade away from the matches. Dortmund was the only home side to win this past weekend, with three teams picking up a point. There was a noticeable difference in...

and Sports moments that make us cry

We miss sports. It is difficult to be at home and expected to remain in school, that is a given. But to do it without sports? The world is cruel. Lucy and Roman have a special relationship to things that some people consider just a game. There is just something about sports that can move...

Ridiculous Hypothetical: Reorganizing and Rescheduling College Football

You know college football? The sport where Scott Cochran earned $595,000 as University of Alabama’s strength and conditioning coordinator this past year? The sport where Cochran’s athletes created $77 million in annual revenue for a program they got no salary from? Yeah, you may be familiar. You’d be crazy not to lament the twisted economics...

College Football’s Coaching Carousel: Grading the Seven Biggest Hires and Audits of My 2017 Grades

Full disclosure: I am infatuated with college football head coaches. It’s almost impossible to capture how important they are at the high-Division I level.  The head coach is so crucial, of course, because of the twisted dynamics of college athletics. College football teams operate like their counterparts in the National Football League in many respects,...

The Beginner’s Guide to Watching LoL Esports

With most sports leagues postponing or suspending their seasons, there is one major sport left alive. No, I’m not talking about the upcoming UFC 249 fight or the HORSE competition being planned by the NBA – I’m talking about electronic sports, or esports. Specifically, I’m talking about the League of Legends (LoL) Spring Split, which...

With Final Four NCAA Tournament games right around the corner and the madness tangible in nearly every conversation here on campus, it brightened my day to finally see some Major League Baseball news to pop up in the headlines. And then I read what was being announced. Miguel Cabrera had agreed to an eight-year extension…

MLB Cracking Down… Harder

MLB Commissioner Bud Selig made a decision back in 2004 that he would take a stand against the use of performance-enhancing drugs in a big way by testing players for illegal substances and levying suspensions on those who had been caught. Back then, the penalty for a first-time offender was a ten day suspension, which…

The Big O: A Career of Defiance

Today’s media would probably describe a player like Oscar Robertson as arrogant, selfish, undiplomatic, and at times an outright dick. In truth, this account of the man we remember today as ‘The Big O” isn’t necessarily wrong. Oscar was brash, abrasive, rude, and downright frightening. Despite his immense talent, he was a nightmare to play…

This is a column written for the Georgetown Voice. It can be found on their website here. While many of my fellow Georgetowners escaped to tropical paradises in the Caribbean for spring break, dropping serious coin on beachside resorts and fruity alcoholic drinks, I flew out to the aesthetically bland Phoenix, Arizona. Far from any…

Manziel, Bridgewater, Watkins, Clowney. These are the names that come to mind when thinking about this year’s NFL draft. These players have been in front of the ESPN cameras for almost the past two years due to their professional potential and even more so for their actions off the field. It is often the case,…

Halftime is extremely excited to get off of the European continent and review a team with a little more spice. Colombia’s footballing stock has risen over the past few years with the advent of players like Jackson Martinez, James Rodriguez, Fredy Guarín, and of course Monaco frontman Radamel Falcao. Colombia placed into a relatively even…

Today, it is impossible to read an article about sports and avoid having a bunch of numbers thrown in your face. In the last ten years, the way that sports is analyzed and reported has completely transformed. In a business that used to be centered on great stories, it is interesting that data analysis has…

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…
