The college baseball season got underway over the weekend at Plainsman Park as the Auburn Tigers hosted the Flames from Illinois-Chicago.
Tom Brady and the New England Patriots have had more success in a 20-year span than any other team in the NFL’s 100-year history. Super Bowl trophies, MVP honors, AFC Championships — what hasn’t the Bill Belichick and Brady combination accomplished?
The Kansas City Chiefs stunned the sports world when they came back from a 20-10 deficit in the fourth quarter over the San Francisco 49ers. For the first time in half a century, the Chiefs are world champs and for the city and for Andy Reid, a huge weight has been lifted — no pun intended.
I am not sure how many times it has to be written about for people to start changing what they say but until I see those changes happen, I am going to keep writing about it. It used to just be a lazy way to insult someone and you could brush it off as a one-time thing but at this point, it’s…

Until I can properly digest the outcome of the national championship game between LSU and Clemson and this week’s basketball game between Auburn and Alabama, I’m taking a look back to 2019 and remembering some of the legendary sports figures who are no longer with us.
As you have probably gathered, I love basketball. I advocate for the sport from youth leagues to the NBA and I want to see it grow as much as possible, especially in a state dominated by football.
As we come to the close of 2019, it’s only natural to look back at what has transpired over the past year. I made some annual predictions about college football back in April and it’s time to revisit those prognostications.
As if you won’t see this type of article hundreds of times as Jan. 1 approaches, here are my thoughts on various sports-related New Year’s resolutions.
The 2019 season has been a down year for the NFC East Division in the NFL. Historically, the NFC East has some of the greatest players, teams and moments in NFL history, but none as popular as the world famous Dallas Cowboys.
The field is set for the College Football Playoff. Good sportsmanship often involves wishing, “May the best team win!” But the best team does not always win, which illustrates an important element of economics.
There may not be a lot of attention on the baseball diamond right now but there are plenty of things happening behind the scenes that have made the news and should probably be talked about more. Major League Baseball had another terrific postseason with plenty of excitement, including a seve…
The NFL is star-studded league that has many household names like Deshaun Watson, Julio Jones, Odell Beckham Jr. and others who have supreme athletic talent everyday people on the street gush over in awe. One-handed catches and 360-degree touchdown passes are fun to see, but they don’t usual…
This past season wasn’t exactly the best one in Alabama Crimson Tide sports history. In fact, in terms of expectations versus results, it could go down as one of the more disappointing in memory.
If there’s one thing “Last Chance U” star Brittany Wagner said at a recent speech at Benjamin Russell that stuck with me more than anything else, it’s one of the uglier realities about the sports world.
As preparation continued for another week of the NFL season last week, I saw a quote from Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield that rubbed me the wrong way. I’m not sure what exactly he meant by it but it didn’t the attention it should have gotten and it became a joke on ESPN talk shows.
The College Football Playoff is now set and for the first time since its inception, Alabama will not be a participant thanks to the Auburn Tigers. You’re welcome America.
We are on the heels of yet another incredible Iron Bowl. What a game it was! Both teams played their hearts out. I’m just thankful the good guys came out on top. It got me to thinking of my most memorable Iron Bowl matchups throughout my lifetime — that I remember.
I said last week this year’s Iron Bowl was going to be very difficult to predict. There were several unknowns that made it nearly impossible to truly know what to expect.
I cannot be certain but since I have not seen a college football game from the time the Iron Bowl ended to the time I am writing this, I can only assume the season has ended and we can now move on to the hardwood. And yes, maybe I am a little bitter but I also just love basketball and the am…
The Carolina Panthers fired coach Ron Rivera on Tuesday after nearly a nine-year tenure. After starting the season 0-2 and losing Cam Newton to injury, the Panthers reeled off four straight wins with undrafted second-year quarterback Kyle Allen and Rivera was in the discussion for NFL Coach …
