A Cleveland State Scare: Vikings Survive Detroit

Cleveland State 56, Detroit 43 (box) I was happy to be down as the Wolstein Center for Horizon League Tournament first round action last night, expecting to see an easy walk-over by the 22-10, third-seeded Cleveland State Vikings. After all, Detroit came to town at 2-14 in the conference, losers of six straight, and had

New Year’s Resolutions for Sports

I hate resolutions.  It seems to me that, when you really think about it, that people wait until an arbitrary moment in time before they stop eating and start exercising or whatever else the resolution might be.  If you feel like changing something in your life, you should probably just do it whenever.  That’s usually

Let’s Go Vi-kings! (Clap, Clap, Clap-Clap-Clap!)

It comes as no surprise that with the exodus of Greg Oden, Mike Conley and Daequan Cook out of Ohio State last year – and into the first round of the NBA Draft – that Ohio State men’s basketball has somewhat fallen off of the radar around these parts. Admittedly, I have very little time

03/07 Morning Minute: That Stings

Man. Talk about taking one on the chin. I’m sure I’m not alone on this one, but I turned this game on in the second quarter. I saw LeBron James nail the three-pointer from the time line to end the half, and then took off to meet a few buddies at a local establishment. By
