An Arms Race Evolving in New York

Jay-Z was not shy about his intentions to move the New Jersey nets to Brooklyn. New Jersey and New York City are ridiculously close; you can see NYC from the Newark Airport. They are so close that the New York Jets and Giants actually play in East Rutherford, New Jersey. So the move for the Nets from New Jersey to New York was not exactly drastic.

However, in 2013, something changed… The Nets got … Continue reading An Arms Race Evolving in New York

The Most Eventful Week of 2013

Well, it has been quite a week for sports hasn’t it? Undoubtedly, it has been the most eventful week of 2013. All my picks were wrong for the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs except for the New England Patriots beating the Houston Texans in a dominant fashion (hooray, I guess). Baltimore got off to a burning start to make sure Ray’s career didn’t stop at Mile High, Atlanta decided it didn’t want to lose by a point on a not-so-last-second touchdown by Russell Wilson, and San Francisco walloped Green Bay on the legs and arm of one Colin Kaepernick. … Continue reading The Most Eventful Week of 2013

Just this offseason, … Continue reading When Coaches Go Pro // It’s A Player’s World

NFL Playoff Predictions: The Better Late Than Never Edition

Well, how about that National Championship game? I’ll move on to talking about the pros though, I’ve inundated you all enough with CFB for a while. I was looking at the next round of games for the NFL playoffs and was sort of surprised at how difficult the picks would be for the NFC. So I decided to write out my thoughts looking forward: NFC Divisional Round Seattle Seahawks @ Atlanta Falcons This is the first of the two hard games to call.

Chip Forgoes the NFL..Again

Despite everything you have heard in the news the last month or so, a quite a few credible sources are saying Chip Kelly is staying firmly planted in Eugene.
