Op Ed: A Letter to the King, LeBron James

Dear Mr. James, It’s been 2 seasons so far and if you ask me, Cleveland isn’t as talented a team as the one you had in Miami. Don’t get me wrong, you’ve got some offense, but Kevin Love was never the answer. Defense is the answer and this Cleveland team plays very little. Mr. James, …

Change is inevitable. Georgia Tech basketball will never succeed with Brian Gregory.

Brian_Gregory

Nearly a year ago, I asked if Georgia Tech had given up on basketball by retaining Brian Gregory.  It seems for at least for the 2015-2016 season the answer is yes. By holding on to Gregory after last season, Georgia Tech effectively threw their hands up for this season and hoped for the best.  There were …

A laugh, I mean look at ESPN’s Final College Football FPI Rankings.

Alabama

  One of the most hilariously flawed “advanced metric” rankings tool the ESPN’s FPI is at it again. They just released their Final Rankings, and they got the first team correct. Alabama is ranked #1. That was correct. It was downhill from there. Let point out the most egregious errors. #2 Oklahoma (11-2) – The …

Clemson set for another College Football Playoff run after falling just short to Alabama in National Title Game.

deshaun-watson-starter

I finally had some time to sit down and give my thoughts on a classic national title game between Clemson and Alabama. Let me just get started… Was Clemson QB Deshaun Watson fantastic in defeat or what? Watson absolutely shredded the vaunted Alabama defense to pieces. He had over 400 yards through the air, and …

Clemson’s 5 keys to beating Alabama.

deshaun-watson-starter

Judging by CBSSportline’s college football “experts”, Clemson should just forfeit the National Championship game with Alabama, avoid the embarrassment and finish the year ranked #2. Alabama is a very good team, with an outstanding defense, but they are beatable. They lost to Ole Miss, nearly lost to Tennessee, and struggled in season ending games against …
