Aaron Rodgers Will Never be Brett Favre

(Photo by Jim Prisching/Getty Images) Brett Favre’s Packers Hall of Fame Induction ceremony at Lambeau Field a few weeks ago made me realize something: Aaron Rodgers will never be Brett Favre. I don’t mean this in a football sense. On the field, Rodgers’ peak (2010 postseason to now) is better than Favre’s peak (probably 1994 to ’97). In terms of

The Roller Coaster That Is The Chicago White Sox

Just when everyone was getting all aboard the Chicago Cubs bandwagon heading into the homestretch of the MLB season, the Chicago White Sox have come out of the cellar to win seven straight road games. They beat up on the Cleveland Indians and the Boston Red Sox to get back to one game under .500 at 49-50. This streak has

The Class of 2015 “Hall of Fake” Inductees

In light of the MLB Hall of Fame induction ceremony on Sunday, I think it’s important to bring to light the people who have made an impact on baseball, but won’t receive a gold plaque in Cooperstown for it. Check out my nominees for the MLB Hall of Fake: 1. Keith Hartley: The man, the myth, the baby-feeding, foul ball-catching

Why the Tigers Need to Sell

With the coming MLB trade deadline, rumors of stars switching teams swirl and debates of buyers and sellers heat up. Perhaps no team is in a more interesting position than the Detroit Tigers, who are in the midst of a season that has fallen way short of preseason expectations. The Tigers have been big free agency and deadline players over

What to Take from the USMNT’s Loss to Jamaica

I am just as shell shocked about this as the rest of you are. I am not at all happy about the result, to put it lightly. This was not supposed to be a tough game. Although very capable, this was not a particularly talented Jamaican team compared to some of the teams the US has faced in recent memory. Some

Conference Preview: Big 12

Also known as the no defense league (NDL), the Big 12 finished 2014 in shame. A bowl record of 2-5 and the only bright spot was TCU taking Ole Miss to the woodshed in the Peach Bowl. Going into 2015, the teams to beat are Baylor and TCU. If you said that five years ago you would probably be considered insane.

This is not a “top 10” list on the greatest basketball books ever, since I have not read every basketball book ever. These are simply my thoughts

Make or Break Seasons for Manuel, Smith

Ryan Nassib, Mike Glennon, Landry Jones; it is no secret that the 2013 NFL Quarterback Draft Class was well, um… underwhelming. 11 QB’s were drafted in total and most (if not all) are going to be lifelong clipboard holders. Although the draft provided the league a bunch of duds, there is still hope for 2 draftees in that historically bad
