NFL Draft: Simple Thoughts

It’s the day before the NFL draft and I have written nothing. Not one single word. Most years I find a 7 round mock draft for the Miami Dolphins and I also use you throw in first round mock draft for the entire league. This year nada. It’s been hard trying to figure out what…

The Return of College Football Saturday

Certain events herald in the different season for some of us. Regardless of the actual start date, the last day of school always told me that summer was here. In the same way the first college football Saturday let me know that fall was here. These are my thoughts on the beginning of the College…

Here’s Johnny

Johnny Manziel had a great 2012. Beat #1 ranked Alabama? Check. Win the Heisman Trophy as a freshman? Check. For many twenty year olds that would be enough. For Johnny ‘Football’, he was just getting warmed up. Friday night he walked into Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas to lead Texas A&M against the Oklahoma Sooners…
