You know how in the old Scooby-Doo cartoons when the gang was chasing the ghost/monster, it almost always ended up in a hallway with a bunch of doors, running in and out of them like crazy and never coming out of the same door they went in? That’s what it looks like in my mind all the time. …

After suffering through approximately an hour and a half of the horribly disappointing finale of “Game of Thrones” series, I spent some time wondering how on God’s green Westeros would I be able to tie this show in with some type of sports article.

I’ve been in Alexander City for more than two years and spent two great summers here, but there’s still so much I haven’t done. The life of a sports editor is a busy one; I’m constantly running from one event to another, trying to cover all our area sports as best as possible and attempting …

Whenever a team wins a championship, the expectations placed upon it grow higher when the next season rolls around. At the same time, some teams experience championship hangover, where the start of said next season sees the defending champion playing rather sluggishly, seemingly still coming…

If you haven’t realized it by now, I exhausted my allotment of creativity about three years ago. If it weren’t for blatantly obvious current events and the constant rehashing of old ideas, my column would conspicuously resemble blank paper.

Vegas put out its incredibly early over-under win totals for most of college football for 2019 recently.

If the Major League Baseball season were to end today, the best record in all of baseball would belong not to any of the teams experts believed would have held this honor, but instead would go to the Tampa Bay Rays.

I highly doubt any casual fan of SEC sports even knew Auburn University had a softball program prior to 2014. Tina Deese deserves a lot of credit for nurturing the program from infancy in 1997 until 2013, but the Tigers simply weren’t very good for the majority of those 17 years.

The pomp and circumstance surrounding the Kentucky Derby has always been unmatched. The pageantry, the mint julips, the history, the fascinators — it’s all a rich tapestry of wealth and tradition.

We’ve all heard the warnings about social media postings before. Whatever is posted on the internet stays there forever. You can never truly delete something. Those posts can follow you forever.

There has never been a perfect example of how to put together a postseason in any sport. Everyone has his or her own solution on how to fix it but there will always be people who will find holes in a playoff format.

As the 2019 Major League Baseball season approached, a commercial was released with some of the biggest faces in the sport doing a press conference. Aaron Judge, Francisco Lindor and Ronald Acuna were among the players on the stand, answering questions about the upcoming season while smiling…

While the NFL isn’t exactly the topic du jour around here, I could not be more fired up for the draft which starts Thursday night. No professional leagues’ draft comes within 100 yards of being as interesting, fun, compelling and captivating as that of the National Football League.

April 2, the Alliance of American Football announced it was suspending operations, bringing to a premature demise what could have turned into a truly competitive football league during the spring months.

The Auburn Tigers wrapped up spring practice over the weekend with the annual A-Day Game in front of over 40,000 people at Jordan Hare Stadium.

Alabama fans have plenty of reasons to feel confident heading into the 2019 season. It’s easy to overlook any perceived flaws — no matter how obvious — and hard not to be impressed with the litany of future NFL stars — and they are very obvious.

Over the last few weeks, the focus of the sports world has been on college basketball but now those seasons are finished. And that focus is about to turn back to the professionals as playoffs begin for the NBA and NHL.

Baseball season has returned to us, with both Major League Baseball and Minor League Baseball having thrown their first pitches of 2019 within the past couple of weeks. For me, seeing baseball back is like a breath of fresh air after a long winter.

I’m fully aware there’s a good chance I’ll be kicked out of the state for this, but my heart is with Virginia this weekend.

There are only four more days of college basketball this season which means the long, seven-month wait between games is way too close. However, after a thrilling weekend of Elite 8 games, basketball fans are expecting to see more of the same across the final six games of the season.

Before I get into this week’s column, let me say congrats to the Auburn basketball team. Making it to the Final Four is a dream come true and huge accomplishment. As a ’Bama fan, I am truly jealous.

Alabama’s next basketball hire will be a big one. The rest of the SEC isn’t going to wait for the Tide to catch up to the league’s increasingly lofty standards. Four rivals are in the Sweet 16 this year and the conference won’t be any easier next season.

College basketball may not be everyone’s favorite sport but everyone can agree the next three weeks of the NCAA Tournament will bring some of the best excitement sports can offer. I will even go a step further and say the next four days are the best four days of the year as a sports fan.

A few weeks ago, I wrote a column about respecting your coaches. Coaches put in a lot of time and energy into trying to make their players not only better student-athletes but also better people.

The world can be a scary, depressing place. Social unrest at home and abroad, political polarization and uncertain economies can leave us all feeling rather … existential.

The Auburn Tigers wrapped up the regular-season on Saturday with a thrilling victory over the No. 5 Tennessee Volunteers 84-80 in front of a sold-out crowd at Auburn Arena.

The college basketball regular season is winding down, but the excitement of March Madness won’t truly begin for a couple of weeks. The college baseball and softball seasons are just beginning, but we won’t know a lot about the teams until conference season begins in a couple of weeks.

A little more than a decade ago, I really started investing myself into the sport of soccer. I did not know much about it but there were more and more exciting games on television and I wanted to understand what was going on.

Every year at the AHSAA basketball championships there are a litany of unbelievable stories. In the AHSAA Radio Network’s 12 years calling games, we have had the privilege of broadcasting contests featuring last second heroics, legendary coaches and eventual NBA superstars.

As I head back to Birmingham this week for one of Alabama’s greatest annual sporting events — the AHSAA Basketball Finals — I can’t help but think about the NBA’s one-and-done rule. It is certainly not a rule that affects many players in our state, but there is one kid in particular who come…

The Auburn Tigers did something Saturday that has become an all too rare occurrence. They won a basketball game against Vanderbilt in Memorial Gymnasium.
