Posted Monday December 05, 2011, About: 2011 College Football Season: Proof We Need a Playoff
This season, as I mentioned above, LSU would be the consentional national champion. However, in years past, there have been numerous teams with legitimate arguments to play in the National Championship. This year, four or five teams have arguments for the number two spot.

Do you see the controversey around a Bama/LSU rematch? With this system in place, teams with legitimate arguments can prove themselves against other top teams. That way, the eventual champion will truly own all other 15 teams.

[i]No way each conference has a team worthy of even entering the discussion of best team in the college football. Your still leaving teams out.[/i]

I understand that argument entirely. However, can you really say teams like Kansas State, South Carolina, and Michigan have legitimate arguments to be crowned National Champion? Instead of allowing two to three loss teams to fight, why not reward small conference champions by giving them a spot to compete for the National Championship.

It is my personal opinion that we need to reward those teams that win their conference, over those without legitimate national championship arguments.

I don't know if this is true, but I thought I read somewhere that soccer as a youth sport is second only to basketball. Don't know if this is true, but I believe soccer in the U.S. is growing.

I may be biased, but I still think the Nuggets had the best draft. Not only did they get a quality rebounder in Kenneth Faried, they got a solid backup point guard in Andre Miller, and traded away Raymond Felton.

I don't think LeBron is anywhere near Kobe's work ethic and competitiveness.

Posted Monday July 12, 2010, About: LeBron vs. Kobe - The Debate Is Over
Great blog Rude!

You have somewhat persuaded me, but I do want to present the other side of the argument.

If you're LeBron James, you say to the public that the only thing you care about is winning. Being a doubtful society, we also believed he wanted a money and to create a legacy.

Do we concluded he wanted, in no particular order:

1.) Championship
2.) Legacy
3.) Money

But by choosing, Miami, he proved all he wanted was to win. Win, win, and win. He could have made more money. And we all agree he would have had a better legacy if he would have stayed. But he proved to us all that all he wants is to win.

I honestly don't think he cares about how he goes down in history now. At the end of his career, he will probably have more rings than Kobe...
Posted Friday July 09, 2010, About: Five Things I Would Change About Soccer
1.) I honestly like the clock and how it goes up.

2.) Agreed. Stop the clock on injuries, goals, and cards.

3.) Flopping is apart of every sport. I don't think looking at it after the game is going to work. Just make a video of flopping and show it to the refs and tell them not to fall for it.

4.) It's undeniable that soccer needs instant replay. I think that each team should get one challenge per half. If they get it right, they can do it again. Challenges do not carry over between halfs. You can challenge offsides, goals, cards, etc.

5.) Penalty kicks are the way to go. Soccer, as it stands, is a physically demanding sport as it is. Can you imagine running around for 120 minutes +. Penalty kicks seperates the men from the boys.

Heat go 80-2. Lose twice to the Nuggets. Nuggets upset Lakers to go to Finals and meet Heat who haven't lost in the playoffs. Nuggets sweep them 4-0.

You heard it here first.
