Marshawn Lynch makes silent noise

He is a three-time professional bowler with a Super Bowl ring and his own charity foundation. He has his own endorsement deal and clothing line, but remains quiet and reserved. And the media hates him for it. Marshawn Lynch does not fit inside the box the media wants to place him in. For one, running […]

College stars scrambling for their NFL lives

Dual-threat quarterbacks are everywhere in the NCAA. The trend has spilled over into the NFL, causing mass chaos on how to prepare spread, no-huddle quarterbacks for the pro-style game. Robert Griffin III, Colin Kaepernick and Johnny Manziel are learning the hard way that their throwing-outside-of-the-pocket days are numbered. Offensive coordinators are trying to fit a square […]

NBA needs parity, playoff system

The NBA’s Western Conference has always been the best the NBA has had to offer. People have been calling for the NBA to change up the conferences to balance out the power of the West and the weakness of the East. An example of bad conference parity is looking at the best division in the […]

The Captain deserves ‘RE2PECT’

Shortstop Derek Jeter was one of the most popular players in Major League Baseball during his 20-year career with the New York Yankees. The 14-time all-star decided to step away from the game after the 2014 season ended, but his legacy and impact on the game still linger. Jeter earned Rookie of the Year award […]

How the NFL got it wrong

The National Football League has taken a nosedive since the start of the 2014 season. Top players with supposed high moral fiber have been involved more with court cases and hearings than playing football.

The 12-game, no bye-week season

The NBA Playoffs: The Old Man Game

Watching Zach Randolph succeed in the NBA playoffs reminds me of pickup basketball at the gym. There is always that one old man that has no athleticism at all, but continues to do his thing and before you know it, he has scored six times in the last nine possessions. The old guy will embarrass […]

The Masters: What we learned

Bubba Watson claimed his second green jacket in three years last week and reminded us of a couple of things. First, golf is bigger than Tiger Woods. Second, the next Tiger Woods is nowhere to be found. The Masters was as captivating as ever. Magnolia Lane, azaleas and Amen Corner will never go out of […]

Racism in sports faded but not extinct

DeSean Jackson, who is black, was recently released from the Philadelphia Eagles amid accusations that Jackson was a member of a gang. Unfortunately, this is an example of racism in the world of professional football. In American sports, racism festers into the decision-making process of executives and coaches in more teams than we, or they, […]

Final Four should be a great finish

After an incredible two weeks of March Madness, the Final Four is shaping up to be a perfect ending to the tournament. Friday night, only a couple of hours from ACU, two great college basketball games will take center stage in Jerryworld. Florida is the only one seed that survived their region, but this final […]

March Madness lives up to its name

With one weekend of March Madness in the books, it is safe to say that brackets are busted and everyone’s quest for one billion dollars ended in dejection. However, the first two rounds of March Madness left everyone with a smile and wonderful memories. Right here in the Southland Conference, history was made when Stephen […]

The unnecessary need for padded hats

Major League Baseball has approved of a padded baseball cap that will be available for all pitchers who choose to wear them. The cap is designed to protect pitchers from line drives that could seriously injure them. Despite the best efforts of the MLB, it is impossible to keep pitchers safe because of the nature […]
