Rivalry Week Is Here

Yeah. So that question at the end of my first paragraph last week it was something to the sound of, “who can hold on and make it to the playoff?” Yeah. That was a serious question, not a joke. As we know, a few teams proved they couldn’t hang on. It was a bad day […]

USMNT: Making a Case for Ethan Finlay

One of the more obvious areas of need for the USMNT following the 2014 World Cup was better production from their wide attacking players. Graham Zusi and Brad Davis just did not cut it in Brazil, and while Alejandro Bedoya proved his worth as a two-way midfielder, his contributions in the attacking phase weren’t nearly […]

Darlington Nagbe: USMNT Savior?

Despite never playing youth international soccer for the United States or his native Liberia, American soccer fans jumped on the Darlington Nagbe bandwagon ever since they saw him play his college ball at Akron. Gifted both technically and physically, fans were not wrong to believe the hype initially. However, Nagbe has shown glimpses of brilliance […]

College Football Week 12: You Asked For It

The top five teams in the country all took care of business by winning last weekend. However, teams’ ranked numbers six, seven, nine, and ten, all lost. You wanted college football to get crazy.

College Football Top 25: Week 12

Can college football get any crazier on a week-to-week basis? The answer is yes. It was another wild week across the college football landscape and a week in which some teams title hopes were ended and some made a stronger case for their schools. Oklahoma State had a nice showing against Texas Christian University and […]

USMNT: Shea must shine in World Cup Qualifiers

Jurgen Klinsmann recently supported veteran Clint Dempsey and challenged his younger players to contribute more consistently. Caught in the middle of those two are players like Brek Shea, who at just 25, has loads of experience at the international level. Shea appeared in Klinsmann’s first match as manager of the Yanks. After a move to […]

Royster Brothers Betting with Value this Week

Don’t let the photo fool you.  The Royster Brothers were in no way betting on Eli Manning and the New York Giants getting seven points at home to New England.  We both realize that the Giants — for some reason — are the Patriots kryptonite when it comes to capping off an undefeated season, but […]

Thank A Vet

Sports are an outlet for many things. A rough day or week, family issues, or even just to escape the real world for a few innings, quarters, or halves. However, the real world is still very real. Sometimes we forget that. Wars still erupt all over the world. Lives are lost. Families are burdened with […]
