QB Wanted…an interview with MGoBlog

  As the recruiting season wraps up, there is at least one major piece still in play, that being Pennsylvania quarterback Terrelle Pryor. His story has been well documented, from his early interest in Ohio State, to learning about Rich Rodriguez’ move to Michigan before West Virginia did. Most recently his connection to a prominent

Cavs still trying to add a piece

Word from Brian Windhorst is that GM Danny Ferry is quite actively trying to make a move to improve the Cavs before the trade deadline.

02/04 Morning Minute: We’ll Get ‘Em Next Year

Sorry New England fans, the “Waiting for Next Year” URL is long gone…  Running off of the field before the end of the game is one thing, and the post-game interview following the game was hollow-at-best.  Half of me wants to simply laugh in the face of all the Patriots stand for, but I’m going to go

02/03 Morning Minute: What Once Was

Does anyone else find it utterly ironic that on the same day that The Plain Dealer puts Bill Belichick on the front page is the same day that rest of the world is ablaze with the recent scandals? What Tony Grossi calls the “recipe for sports immortality,” the rest of the world is throwing out

Some mistakes you never stop paying for

Kellen Winslow Jr. will not be joining teammates Braylon Edwards, Josh Cribbs, Joe Thomas and Ryan Pontbriand in Hawaii for the Pro-Bowl. As first alternate, he would have been invited had the former Kent State basketball standout Antonio Gates decided not to play due to his foot injury. The window of opportunity for the tight

02/02 Minute: Chicks Dig The Long Snap

I’m not sure how I missed this earlier in the week, but with big thanks to Mike over at Kid Cleveland I am now privy to the information that Browns long-snapper Ryan Pontbriand is heading to Hawaii with teammates Joe Thomas, Braylon Edwards and Joshua Cribbs. As he mentioned, with the Pontbriand selection back in

A Rooting Interest

For several years I have cared less about who wins the Super Bowl. The game for me was more of a chance to get together with friends or unfortunately to work. This year I again don’t care for either of the teams in the game, but my hatred for Boston sports is reaching new heights.

Indians Announce New Contract!!!

“He’s been an absolute warrior for us,” general manager Mark Shapiro recently said.  “He’s one of the hardest workers and the most selfless players on our Major League team. In so many ways, he embodies what this team is all about.” Yeah, I know. I’m being a jerk. The Indians didn’t extend C.C. Sabathia, they

Derek Anderson, Ringer

Cleveland Browns fans, our beloved quarterback from this past year may be looking for a new contract. He may be looking to capitalize on a year where he helped turn around a franchise that was destined for the cellar only one week into the season. But do you think that stops him from enjoying life?

02/01 Morning Minute: Value…Personified

There is no denying the tight race that sits atop the National Basketball Association when discussing the MVP – Most Valuable Player.  The improvement that Chris Paul has made after an injury-laden season, the shear amazing abilities of Kobe Bryant and the turnaround that Kevin Garnett has meant to Boston are all solid cases.  However,

GAMBLOG – The Super Bowl Prop Bets

Super Bowl XLII, Proposition Bets Carrying on with the tradition of The GAMBLOG, I thought it would be a great idea to touch on the proposition bets that infiltrate Super Bowl weekend. You see, with only one game on the docket, there is not very much action to throw money on – so if we

Lets See Action

Negotiations Likely To Pick Up Soon Rick mentioned earlier this week some of the ways that the Johan Santana trade will affect the Indians. In the post Rick mentioned that one way it will affect the Indians is by setting the market for Sabathia. Well, Scott picked up on this in his minutes column today

01/31 Morning Minute: First Three Quarters Are Overrated

Who’s this Joe Johnson you speak of? As Rick already mentioned, LeBron James did it again.  With the Cavaliers struggling to amass much of an offense for most of the contest, James took over in the fourth quarter – per usual – as Cleveland outscored the Blazers 22-15 to win by one.  How about this

Cavaliers

Youth is Served

LeBron played through pain, a poor shooting night, and another court side heckler to will the Cavaliers to an ugly win over Portland. James took the young Blazers to school in the fourth quarter, scoring 17 of his game high 37, including the final basket of the game. His driving lay-up fell through the net

How much does respect matter?

  Interesting read over at ESPN about the Buckeyes. In this article by Bruce Hooley, Kirk Herbstreit tries to make an interesting point. Here’s the quote: In my opinion, Ohio State could do more about [improving] the image people have of its program by playing a talented USC team that right now is as hot
