Top 10 Colts to watch as preseason wraps against Eagles and Bengals
August 22, 2016

In four weeks, no one will remember the Indianapolis Colts lost 19-18 to the Baltimore Ravens at Lucas Oil Stadium Saturday night, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t watch preseason football. There are jobs at stake with every snap, which makes the preseason dramatic but in a much different way than the regular season. Through […]

Olympic disgrace Ryan Lochte’s 10 greatest screw-ups in Rio
August 18, 2016

Assuming the Ryan Lochte story unravels as expected and he’s exposed as a liar, he will become a punchline forever – an ugly American who treated another country as his toilet and claimed sanctuary as a victim of an armed robbery before fleeing Brazil. The sad part of this sometimes hilarious story is that right […]

Top six very, very good things about the Butler Way
August 17, 2016

For the third time in 2016, Butler’s basketball program has suffered a profound loss. First came the expected but extremely sad passing of Andrew Smith, whose goodness and competitiveness forever endeared him to staff, teammates, and fans for the latter seven years of his way-too-short 25 year life. Then we heard about “Little Em” Kampen, […]

Top 10 Indianapolis Colts with the most to prove in 2016
August 16, 2016

This is going to be a very interesting season for the Indianapolis Colts. Rebound or continue decline are the two possibilities for the Horseshoes, and it seems the odds of either are right at 50-50. Many in national media predict the Colts will finish 6-10 or 5-11.  Locally, most are more optimistic.  We tend to […]

Top eight takeaways from Saturday night’s meaningless Colts win
August 15, 2016

The Indianapolis Colts won their first preseason game 19-18 over the Buffalo Bills, and if you felt better (or worse) about the Colts chances to enjoy a fruitful 2016 because of that result, you are a moron. You can enjoy the game as a positive alternative to losing, but preseason wins are meaningless, and so […]

Top 10 position battles for the 2016 Indianapolis Colts
August 9, 2016

So many decisions – so much time. Camp for the Indianapolis Colts has been uneventful through the first two weeks.  No big issue injuries, and no real clarity in some position battles that will go a long way toward determining whether the Colts will roll into the playoffs or miss the big circus for the […]

Top nine positives from cancelled Colts vs. Packers NFL Hall of Fame Game
August 8, 2016

Idiocy, heresy, stupidity, lunacy, buffoonery.  Yep, last night at the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game brought all those words and more to mind. By now, we all know the NFL Hall of Fame Game between the Indianapolis Colts and Green Bay Packers was cancelled last night due to unsafe field conditions caused by the […]

Bryan Clauson passes away – Statement from Bryan’s family
August 8, 2016

I got to spend a lot of time around Bryan Clauson the last two Mays as he prepared to drive the Jonathan Byrd’s Racing entry in the Indianapolis 500.  I was one of the lucky who got to know him a little bit. Talking to a guy on the radio is sort of strange in […]

Top seven reasons you should pay attention to University of North Carolina Academic scandal
August 4, 2016

Student-athletes at the University of North Carolina were enrolled in classes that awarded excellent grades without requiring any work. That is academic fraud. Because of fancy lawyering by those representing the school, the NCAA will likely look the other way, and that’s too bad for the athletes who are promised an education in exchange for […]

Top 10 takeaways from a calmly optimistic Indiana Football Media Day
August 3, 2016

Indiana University’s football program is the losingest in the history of college football. I bring that up only to reinforce the difficulty of executing a longterm pivot from terrible to bad to mediocre to good to championship contender.  It’s taken a long time to get here – wherever on that continuum you believe the Hoosiers to […]
