What an opening week. The state of Texas is officially bad at football, Georgia Tech ran for 535 yards and lost the game, and Bama is still king. RIPIP to Deondre Francois' season. This whole weekend was fabulous. Let's see how my top 25 looks after a chaotic week one.... Continue reading

Summer is dull sports wise. If there isn't an international soccer tournament or a compelling baseball race there isn't much to get excited about. Summer is basically the lead up to football season. Given that football season is still far away, I'm not feeling the usual excitement for the best... Continue reading

Finally, the NBA regular season is done. Players are done resting and now the real games begin. I'll pick the first round in a completely (chuckle) non-biased (loud giggle) manner (loud burst of laughter.) BullSHIT I'm going to be completely biased. Let's get started. Bulls-Celtics So far all games in... Continue reading

Major League Baseball started their season with a thud as my Yankees lost to Tampa on Sunday. However, baseball is different from the other sports. It has an active farm system for each team. The minor league season is almost as important than the parent clubs' seasons. The Cubs, for... Continue reading

Ah, baseball season. There is no other sport like baseball in the world. The fan experience and the sport itself are both unique in the sports world. Baseball also has the advantage of each team customizing their own home field. All ballparks are different and it makes baseball tourism a... Continue reading

Florida just beat Wisconsin in an OT NCAA Tournament game won by a buzzer beater. South Carolina beat Baylor to get to the Elite Eight. Kentucky beat UCLA, which wasn't as shocking but was still noteworthy because De'Aaron Fox completely outplayed Lonzo Ball. The SEC is on top of the... Continue reading

The first round wasn't that exciting in terms of upsets. The games were really good, but nothing shocking happened. However, that second round was awesome. Villanova went down, Duke lost a true road game as a 2 seed, Florida State got killed by Xavier, and Michigan beat Louisville. Now the... Continue reading

This is my favorite time of the year. I always fill out at least 10 brackets but I use only one of them as my official bracket. I have an upset bracket and I also have a ton of coin flip brackets. Since the odds of a perfect bracket are... Continue reading

As I have previously stated, I hate the New England Patriots. So it came as no surprise to me that they traded for Brandin Cooks. Because why the fuck not. It's typical for the Patriots to seemingly steal great players from other lesser teams. But as I was thinking about... Continue reading

This is my first NFL post, so first let me explain my biases. I am a huge Jets fan. I am a Maccagnan believer and I think Todd Bowles is a good coach and loves saying the word "ass." Being the massive Jets fan that I am, I hate the... Continue reading

March is my favorite month outside of every single month with football. MLS is starting, international club soccer and the NBA are in full swing, spring training is going on, and there's hockey every night. But that pales in comparison to the NCAA Tournament. The biggest tournament in the world... Continue reading

For y'all who don't know, LaVar Ball is the guy whose sperm must have headbands because he is the dad of three incredible basketball players: Lonzo, LaMelo, and LiAngelo Ball. Lonzo is currently one of the best college basketball players in the country. LaMelo scored 92 points in a high... Continue reading

It's trade deadline season, aka the part of the year that Woj has complete control over everyone who follows the NBA. It's also the part of the year that we can't trust anything unless it appears as a bleacher report or ESPN notification. It's not quite as dramatic as the... Continue reading

In case you've been living under a rock or hate the NBA, DeMarcus Cousins has been traded to the New Orleans Pelicans. Ok, that seems fair. But if you actually look at the deal, you'll realize that it's incredibly one sided in favor of the Pelicans. The Kings traded away... Continue reading

Jimmer Fredette, aka the Great White Hope, has scored 73 points in a Chinese League game. Basketball is better when Jimmer is playing at his best. When people try to shoot a deep three, they call it a Curry. They are WRONG. It will always be a Jimmer. He started... Continue reading

Well this is it. I finally decided to start my own blog that was not only football related but now has other content. This is going to be where you hear my take on things. It's going to be sports related but also may include some pop culture and Internet... Continue reading

The committee got it right. After Washington blew out Colorado on Friday night, I said to myself, "There's no way that they can kick out Washington now." Alabama took care of Florida, which we were all expecting. Clemson had trouble closing against VT (a recurring theme this season for them)... Continue reading

Rivalry Week didn't disappoint. Ohio State-Michigan was the best game of the year. Colorado played an excellent game against Utah. Oregon State won against Oregon. Mississippi State added to Ole Miss' woes. Unfortunately, it was the last week of the regular season. Thank you to all the teams that gave... Continue reading

We got this week's chaos on Thursday and one bit on Saturday. But the result wasn't completely unexpected. It was the way the result happened that was unexpected. Louisville got crushed by Houston. The result of Houston winning wasn't that surprising. The surprising part was the domination of Louisville by... Continue reading

Hi, Chaos. It's been a while. But I (and a lot of other college football fans) are glad that you have visited us this past weekend. We have needed it. The committee certainly didn't need it, but we did. We want Louisville to have a chance at the playoff. So... Continue reading

The Electoral College will meet tonight to elect a new US President. However, fittingly, the Electoral College of college football will also meet tonight to grace the public with their rankings. Here is a brief primer on what to expect from tonight's rankings. Top 3 Will Remain Unchanged Alabama, Clemson,... Continue reading

I learned a lot this week. And so did the selection committee (hopefully). I noticed that Nebraska might not be as good as we thought they were, Ohio State is DEFINITELY not out of it, Washington State is a force to be reckoned with, and Alabama will probably not lose... Continue reading

I woke up this morning to this notification on my phone: "Former Alabama QB Blake Barnett will have an official visit with Oregon this weekend." I had two reactions to this news. The first one was my disappointment with Barnett. As you recall, Barnett left the University of Alabama earlier... Continue reading

Wow. That is all I can say about this weekend. The majority of unbeaten teams lost, and some in crazy fashion (WALKOFF SAFETY FTW WYOMING). But now is time to look forward to next week. We get some CFP rankings on Tuesday (finally) and also we get some weekday MACtion... Continue reading
