On a wild Saturday night in Indianapolis, the Wisconsin Badgers earned a victory that’s significance rivals that of any other in program history. The Badgers brought down previously unbeaten Kentucky 71-64 in a Final Four rematch at Lucas Oil Stadium, which not only ended the Wildcats’ quest for perfection, but also sent Wisconsin into […]
In sports everyone loves a good rivalry, and the National Hockey League is no exception. From Bruins-Canadiens to Red Wings-Avalanche, the NHL has a rich history of intense rivalries between teams and fan bases that love nothing more than to hate one another. Well, the league’s next rivalry might be brewing out in the Western […]
Regardless of what happened Sunday night in Glendale, Tom Brady was going to go down as one of the greatest quarterbacks to ever play the game. But after helping spark the biggest fourth-quarter comeback in Super Bowl history, Brady now finds himself on equal footing with childhood idol Joe Montana in the annals of NFL history. […]
Thanks to a Philadelphia crowd that sucked all the energy out of the Wells Fargo Center after Daniel Bryan was eliminated, the main event of the WWE’s Royal Rumble was a bit of a disappointment this year. However, the triple threat match for the WWE World Heavyweight championship that preceded it more than made up […]
Bill Belichick has accomplished a ton throughout the course of his Hall of Fame coaching career, including 211 regular-season wins, an NFL-record 21 postseason victories and three Super Bowl titles. But on Saturday afternoon, he delivered his magnum opus.
I have mostly ignored the ongoing NFL playoff games, but I found myself on the couch watching the last quarter of the Dallas Cowboys-Green Bay Packers game on Sunday. I turned it on just in time to see the reaction to the reversed Dez Bryant fourth-down reception. The overturned call would end the Cowboys’ drive and season, and I […]
The Bengals fell to the the Indianapolis Colts 26-10 on Sunday in what can only be described as an anemic performance. Nothing went right and Marvin Lewis deserves the blame.
It’s finally over, Bears fans.
No more watching a passionless, unmotivated football team every week. Your energy can now be used watching the Bulls and Blackhawks – teams that are among the best in their respective leagues.
It all comes down to this, one last Sunday to close the 2014 NFL regular season.
With most fantasy seasons now completed attention this Sunday focuses on daily games, with several strategies in play and all 32 teams in action.
The Milwaukee Bucks have been far bettr than expected this season. Despite losing No. 2 overall pick Jabari Parker for the season with an ACL injury, Milwaukee is still in the hunt for a playoff berth in the Eastern Conference. But are the Bucks for real, or will they fade as the season continues?
Picking games in the final two weeks of the NFL regular season tends to be less complicated as teams have different agendas heading towards the end of the year.
To be honest, I struggled with my NFL Week 14 FanDuel selections.
In recent years Week 17 has been designated for divisional play, but this season, Week 15 provides a preview with 11 divisional games, 10 of which have playoff implications.
And I have gained some separation from the .500 level, this is always a good time to finish strong.
Two plus two does not equal five, or even six.
That is the reality of the College Football Playoff. With five major conferences, it is assured at least one would not be represented and their would be the inevitable controversy and at one team being ‘snubbed’.

Which brings us to Ohio State being selected over TCU and Baylor by the selection committee just five days after the previous ranking deemed TCU better than Florida State for the number three seed.
So after thrashing lowly Iowa State 55-3, the Horned Frogs dropped not only behind the Seminoles, but also Ohio State and Baylor.
Outside of Thursday Night Football, 30 NFL teams will be playing on Sunday and Monday, allowing for numerous options in one-week leagues. Last week I suggested several bargain plays such as Ryan Fitzpatrick, Shaun Hill, Tre Mason and Kenny Stills who worked out quite well.
Out of over 80,000 entries, the $175,000 winner of last Sunday’s Million Dollar contest racked up 252.02 points with the following lineup.
