Do either of these two teams have a chance to crash the party and sneak into the 4 team playoff? Iowa is my darkhorse to make it. They return a ton of starters and their schedule sets up perfect for them. I honestly feel like both teams could run their schedule. Obviously Marshall would need a lo...

While im beyond happy to have James back home...I remember how hard it was to watch LBJ walk away. With that being said, I feel bad for Wade, but the more I think about it, why couldn't this be a homecoming for all 3 involved. Lebron to Cleveland. Bosh to Houston. Wade to Chicago? If you are goi...

How good is Michael Brantley? In my opinion, he is the most underrated player in MLB. This kid does it all and is continuing to get better. He has been consistent in his carreer, which is all you can ask for. He has speed, power and a great arm. I think he should be starting in the All Star Game,...

Was watching OTL this morning about Canadien basketball and it dawned on me....how does Canada not qualify more for the Olympics in Basketball? They haven't qualified since the 2000 Olympics. Canada is only ranked 25th by FIBA. That's crazy to me. I think Canada is in a golden era of basketball. L...

Indiana wins the B1G tournament in front of the largest post season crowd in tournament history (19,965) at TD Ameritrade in Omaha. A big day for the B1G in my opinion. Indiana (42-13) secures an automatic bid and the question now becomes does Nebraska (40-19) secure an at-large big into the NCAA f...

Break up the Cavaliers, they have won 5 in a row and sit at 21-33, just 3 games out of the playoffs. They have a chance to go on a nice run with the following schedule. I think this team finally realizes that its time to start living up to their potential. Next 5 games:

Huge game tonight in the B1G. Ohio State comes in at 15-0 while Michigan State comes in at 13-1. Two very very good teams and two very very good coaches. I think the key to the game will be who wins the battle between Amir Williams and Adrian Payne underneath. Neither team has depth underneath so...

With the Big 12 sitting at 10 schools, my theory has always been that the Big 12 needs to get back to 12 teams with a championship game. If the Big 12 ever decids to expand again, would UCF's victory over Baylor in the Fiesta Bowl be enough to get the Big 12 to invite them? Largest university in Am...
