Your Yearly Reminder That I Hate One-And-Done

Last night, UCLA lost in the Sweet Sixteen to Kentucky, ending Lonzo Ball’s career with the program. The Bruins were a popular pick for reaching both the Final Four and the National Championship, but they couldn’t offset a historic night from De’Aaron Fox. Ball’s last game was lackluster. Besides losing out to another elite team…

Thoughts On The Round Of 32

The NCAA Tournament is the best playoff in sports, period. It never disappoints. That being said, this hasn’t been an exciting tournament in terms of pure upsets thus far. I’m not saying the first round was unexciting or anything, I’m just saying that if you filled your bracket with upsets, then this wasn’t your ideal…

LaVar Ball Is A Genius

To most people, LaVar Ball is living vicariously through his three talented sons – Lonzo, LiAngelo and LaMelo. He’s a loud-mouthed dad on the sidelines who puts all the other hardo parents we’ve all seen at Little League, CYO and Pop Warner games to shame. He’s a clown, or a media whore. I disagree. I…

Takeaways On ND’s Signing Day

To say Notre Dame struggled through the 2016 season would be a massive, massive understatement. Though they lost a lot of key contributors from their Fiesta Bowl team the year prior, the Irish underperformed on both sides of the ball, and it lead to a lot of questions regarding the program’s future. Brian Kelly’s job is…

College Football Playoff Prediction – National Championship

In many ways, a rematch of last year’s epic national championship seems like it was fate. This time last season, it was Alabama who overcame skepticism (whether it was actually deserved or not) en route to beating a then-undefeated Tigers team. This time around, it’s the Tigers who many (myself included) have called “overrated” or…

College Football Playoff Prediction – PlayStation Fiesta Bowl

Yesterday, I did a thing – I think Alabama will beat Washington. So does most of the country, so I guess I’m not that special. However, the PlayStation Fiesta Bowl draws a lot of excitement. The Ohio State Buckeyes, winners of the first edition of the College Football Playoff, are playing against the Clemson Tigers,…

College Football Playoff Prediction – Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl

Since TJ does such a great job with his MLB Playoff Predictions each season, I thought I’d take a crack at my own. This time, with the College Football Playoff. Today, I’ll talk the first game of the playoff, the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl, which pits the top-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide against the Washington Huskies. Kickoff…

Message To Jerry Jones – Shut Up

The Dallas Cowboys have been absolutely untouchable by the NFL all season long, except for two games against the Giants. Their high-powered offense has been their bread and butter, leading them to a league-high 13 wins. The ‘Boys are blessed with the NFL’s most high-profile owner too, in Jerry Jones. The man has been around…

To Sit, Or Not To Sit

Today, it was announced that Stanford running back Christian McCaffrey will not be playing in the team’s meaningless, total joke of a  bowl game on December 30th. He has decided that he would rather prepare for the NFL Draft instead of risking injury in the Hyundai Sun Bowl. McCaffrey is the second notable running back to pull…

DeShone Declares

One of the bigger news in the college football world is DeShone Kizer forgoing the rest of his eligibility to enter the NFL draft. I can’t speak for each and every Irish fan, but I think I speak for many when I say that I’m not surprised to see this. In 23 games as a starting quarterback,…

Should Carolina Move On From Ron Rivera?

Last night, the Panthers’ disappointing season only grew worse with a 40-7 thrashing in Seattle. Granted, the Seahawks are a perennial Super Bowl contender, and going into the Pacific Northwest in the later weeks of the season is always difficult. But reigning MVP Cam Newton was benched to start the game for violating the team…

Three Point Stance – Episode 15

After a hiatus, TJ, Sean and Tyler return to discuss the MLB Hall of Fame Ballot, Draymond Green, and pro football in Mexico City, among other topics.
