NFL Falls Short Again

Ray Rice was suspended for two games last Friday for his assault on his fiancee. He and his fiancee were arrested for the incident, but the video from the incident is chilling to say the least. It captures Ray Rice dragging his fiancee from the elevator as she is unconscious after a "fight" that occurred between the two. Rice has shown remorse in interviews since the incident, however what occurred still occurred. 

MLB Trade Deadline Approaches

We are mere days away from one of my favorite times of the sports calendar year, the MLB trade deadline. At the stroke of 4pm, teams will know what they will have going forward for the rest of the season and for ten teams, the postseason. This is not to say that trades don't happen after the deadline, but making significant moves happen through waivers is increasingly difficult. 

Lebron James Opts Out of Being an Icon

Lebron James will go down as one of the best players to pick up a basketball. He has the talent of the greats and abilities that surpass many of them. He has a personality and aura around him that dictates being one of the iconic members of basketball lore. However, he has a shortsightedness that will keep him out of that group.

NASCAR's New System Benefits the Weak

NASCAR changed their point system in the offseason to further add to the excitement of the points system as well as make wins even more important. However, in doing so, they have made the points system favor those that are capable of performing well at one type of track.

The Most Ironic Loss

The NBA Finals began last night to the tune of the A/C going out in San Antonio. The fact that this loss occurred is not only atrocious, but ironic. A team from Miami with the nickname "The Heat" just lost because they got too hot.

The fact that Lebron James was not on the court at the end of the game is the atrocity. It is Game 1 of the NBA's best series and the star of the NBA is sitting on the bench at the end of the 4th quarter. There is no competitive advantage to this, not is there an added level of excitment. It is simply put, an atrocity.

Tyndall's First Week on Rocky Top

To say that new coach Donnie Tyndall has had a rough first week at the University of Tennessee would be an understatement. After two weeks at the University, it is going to be an uphill battle to win back the fans to the Hill. 

Donald Sterling: Silver's First Big Decision


Just three months ago David Stern formally retired from the NBA. He left behind a legacy of building one of the four major sports brands into an empire. There were pitfalls along the way, but there is no denying that in his 30 year tenure, the NBA flourished. Now, his predecessor Adam Silver has his first major decision upon him.

Donnie Knoxville: A Tale of Meh

The University of Tennessee yesterday hired the former Southern Miss basket coach, Donnie Tyndall. Tyndall comes to Rocky Top with a career 200 wins and is coming off of back to back 25 plus win seasons. However, you will have to forgive the fans of the university for not jumping up and down with joy.

Dave Hart's Big Decision

A week has passed since Cuonzo Martin has left the University of Tennessee for greener pastures in the PAC-12. Here's to hoping he finds the respect that he deserved from the University of Tennessee and never seemed to attain. 

Bubba Watson is the Champion Golf Needs

Bubba Watson won his second Master's in three years this past Sunday with a 69 on Sunday. A remarkable feat, but more important one the PGA needs.
