Kevin Pritchard is changing the game trying to build the Pacers into a star-less monster
October 4, 2019

Kevin Pritchard can’t run the Pacers basketball operation in the same way as the other 29 guys with his job and win a championship. Many of the other teams can lure Uber-talented free agents with bright lights, branding opportunities, and championship dreams.  The Pacers are a small market team without a single NBA title in its 43 seasons.

SB-206 puts university presidents on the clock – hysteria among fearful follows
October 1, 2019

University presidents screwed up as they refused to adjust to what is good and right in dealing with their athletes and the right to monetize their image.  Now states like California are eager to force their hand. California’s SB 206, signed into law yesterday, seeks to correct the arrogance so pervasive in academia, where old and learned men […]

Reich made the right call – the only call – by kicking it deep
September 30, 2019

Colts coach Frank Reich had a choice.  Behind by seven with 1:10 left, should he try the onside kick or pound it deep? With all three timeouts left, if the Colts kicked deep and the defense could keep the Raiders from earning a first down they would get the ball back with 45-seconds left. Or Reich could […]

The Chicago Cubs lost their eighth consecutive game last night, and were mathematically eliminated from the postseason for the first time since 2014.

One month later, Indianapolis Colts fans are asking “Andrew who?”
September 24, 2019

One month ago today, ESPN’s Adam Schefter shocked the football world by tweeting Andrew Luck’s retirement from football. It seems like it’s been so much longer than that.  Out of sight, out of mind, I guess. What Luck has been doing is anyone’s guess.  I’m not sure anyone has asked.  Is he in Indy, or visiting Amsterdam?  Maybe […]

Changes coming for Cubs as the end of the road for Joe Maddon nears
September 23, 2019

The 2019 Chicago Cubs are playing da baseball because neither fun nor mental describe their efforts through 156 games. Six games remain and the Cubs still have a slim chance of playing in the postseason, but aren’t optimistic after watching them lose their last five games by a single run. Just three years ago the Cubs won their […]

September 23, 2019

Youth basketball is not broken.  It’s alive, well and thriving. Team USA finished seventh in the World Cup earlier this month, and coaches and fans point to youth basketball as one of the primary reasons for that failure.  Oh sure, the point of kids playing basketball is to win championships. Tens of thousands of boys […]
