And the beat goes on.  The sporting world is heating up as we near the end of what has been a great summer.  Here is what has caught my attention.

Tebow Turmoil

John Fox finally made the official announcement today.  Kyle Orton is the official starter in Denver.  Also, most directions point towards Brady Quinn residing in the number two spot.  Meaning Tim Tebow has fallen to number three.  A number one draft pick of a year ago is the 3rd string guy?  Talk about a bust.  I have been saying it since that fateful night of April 22, 2010.  Tim Tebow was a heck of a college player and seemingly is an even better person.  But in no way was he first round caliber player.

Generally first round picks are guys that a team expects to come in and make an impact in year one.  And if they do not get the opportunity to make some noise in year one, then it is most definitely expected in year two.  Well it appears year two, unless a major outbreak of injuries occurs, will be another bust for Florida’s favorite son Tim Tebow.

Muscle weighs more than fat

Have you ever heard the saying, “Muscle weighs more than fat?”  I am not sure if it is actually true, but I have always been under the impression that it was.  Anyways, we appear to be in for what may be an epic season in NCAA Hoops.  Finally we will get to see some truly dominant teams battle it out in March for the title.  Granted, it may be the only basketball that we get to witness this year.

One of the college games biggest stars has been making some headlines lately.  And not necessarily for his on-court conquests or for any off-the-court indiscretions.  Ohio State’s golden boy, Jared Sullinger, has trimmed down.  Sullinger apparently has been killing himself to lose some of the extra weight this offseason that rests on his 6 9, 280 pound frame.  Sullinger took the college basketball stratosphere by storm last year and did it via old school fundamental post-up basketball.

“Food for Thought 3-29-11”

I think this picture should be enough evidence for the Barry Bond's Perjury Trial. Sadly though, it will not nearly be enough. Can we just end this circus already?

It’s another Tuesday, which could only mean one thing.  Lets jump into this week’s version of “Food for Thought.”

“NCAA March Madness Preview Part 1”

The brackets are out. Let the journey to Houston begin!

The Brackets are finally officially set.  No more speculation.  No more bracketology.  I will admit that what ESPN Bracketology specialist Joe Lunardi does is pretty remarkable.  But it is made out as if his bracket is more important than the real thing some times.  I will take the bracket presented by the CBS Selection Show every day of the week over Lunardi’s.  Anyways, after watching the Selection Show this evening, here are a few initial items that really jumped out at me: Continue reading
