July 8, 2015
By

There has been a lot of chatter on talk radio as to who the Reds will trade before the deadline.  Cueto will demand the most money if the Reds decide to keep him.  He is a starter whose contract is up the end of this year, and he certainly is a proven winner.  Chapman...

Tom Izzo is the head basketball coach at Michigan State University.  His team was the 2000 NCAA Champion.  Believe it or not, that is the last time the Big Ten has won the championship.  His team was in the 2009 title game as well, but did not win.  Izzo’s teams have been Big Ten champs...

Trevor Bauer is a pitcher for the Cleveland Indians.  In a recent article I read in Sports Illustrated, Bauer explained his long toss theory for keeping his arm strong and preventing the injuries that so many pitchers today face.  Three to five times a week, instead of throwing on the sidelines which so many...

Mud Bowl

July 2, 2015
By

I recently read in the Lawrenceburg paper that Lawrenceburg High School is putting a synthetic surface on their football field.  For the past several years the “Bowl”, as it is known in Lawrenceburg, has been subject to poor drainage and it is almost an impossibility to keep grass growing on the field.  No one...

Roger Goodell

July 1, 2015
By

Roger Goodell’s name has certainly appeared too often in the media this year.  If you do not know, he is the commissioner of the NFL.  He is really the owner’s puppet, not a leader.  Most of his decisions seem to favor what the owners want and not what is best for the sport. Domestic...

Congratulations to the area schools who made a great run in the softball and baseball state tournaments this year.  Milan and Franklin County girls both made it to the semi-state in softball.  Ironically, both schools lost 1-0.  I know in the case of Franklin County they were a very young team and should be...

What do you do if you are a 3-time state champ as a freshman?  You go out and do the same thing again as a sophomore and lead your team to a state championship.  Lynna Irby of Pike High School in Indianapolis did just this.  When you reach the state level, an athlete of...

If you are not aware, Bryan Hoeing was drafted by a major league team this year.  The Arizona Diamondbacks picked Hoeing in the 32nd round.  On the Diamondback’s website they put their reasons for drafting him even though he had the ACL injury from basketball and is possibly facing surgery on his arm this...

Are Times Changing?

You have heard me complain on this blog about Indiana and Purdue allowing “Blue Chip” basketball players to go out of state to play.  In the past couple of months, both IU and Purdue have done quite well in the recruiting wars.  Recently, Purdue received a commitment from a Texas Juco guard and garnered...
