Preseason football makes no sense, but we can’t not watch it! #Colts
August 9, 2019

Watching preseason football is a total waste of time.  Maybe the players and coaches get something out of it, but for fans and media, it’s a non-event we can’t stop watching. I sat in front of the TV last night for three hours trying to figure out what was going on as the Colts and […]

Can former Colts punter Pat McAfee host a successful national radio show?
August 8, 2019

Pat McAfee is smart as hell, engaging as hell, and restless as hell.  That gives him a hell of a shot at being a successful sports talk radio host. As a standalone gig, a daily radio show is a lot of work.  Coupled with his roster of responsibilities as an analyst for ESPN’s Thursday night college football […]

As Anthony Leal ponders decision, here are reasons why Archie Miller is locking down Indiana
August 7, 2019

What’s so special about basketball players from Indiana?” “Do you really think basketball is different inside Indiana’s borders?” “Why should Indiana University value a kid from Indiana over an identical kid from New York or Texas?” If you are from Indiana, you would be surprised how often I’m asked these questions.  If you aren’t from […]

August 6, 2019

Corruption in college basketball is alive, well, and legal. USC Basketball got great news it expected yesterday when Evan Mosley, the top ranked recruit in the 2020 high school class, committed to the Trojans.  They got similarly good news last year when Evan’s brother Isaiah committed.  He’s another five-star recruit. Eric Mobley, Evan and Isaiah’s dad, was hired by […]

July 31, 2019

LeBron James has no peer.  He is the most famous basketball player in the world, and the best player of his generation – without argument. He’s also a dad who wants to watch his son play – especially during the summer when he’s not putting on a show for Lakers fans. So LeBron goes to […]

July 30, 2019

Colts quarterback Andrew Luck will miss the next three days of work at training camp and will not play the preseason opener in Buffalo, according to coach Frank Reich. The decision to sit Luck in Buffalo was made three months ago, but the adjustment in his practice schedule came due to pain in the calf […]

Cubs need to stand pat at the trade deadline, then get busy in the offseason
July 29, 2019

The Cubs have a decision.  Exercise patience, hoping the team magically finds the exuberance that made them so much fun to watch from 2015 to 2017, or sell some parts to restock a depleted farm system. The trade deadline is two days away and president Theo Epstein could try to find a piece of two […]

Cubs send Addison Russell to Iowa because talent without discipline will always fail
July 25, 2019

People who make bad decisions – or exhibit a lack of behavioral control – in one area will likely make them in others. Such is the case with Cubs second baseman Addison Russell, who was accused in social media posts by his ex-wife of general idiocy that included physical abuse and emotional terror.  Russell was suspended […]
