Friday, November 29th, 2013

Ah, Thanksgiving weekend, a time for food, family, friends, football and corny alliterations college basketball. Yours truly has the privilege of being on site to cover the Old Spice Classic, an eight-team tournament at the HP Field House located at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, FL. Day ...

Week Two College Football Roundup

Sunday, September 11th, 2011

Even though Indiana football is depressingly bad, Purdue is still just as bad. And that's awesome. Make no mistake, Indiana would have lost to Rice too, and it might not have been close enough for a blocked field goal to make a difference. But damn is it fun to watch Purdue ...

WiseGuyAction’s Early NCAA Leans

Monday, March 14th, 2011

Every year on Selection Sunday, the only thing more entertaining than filling out a bracket and incessantly staring at it is incessantly staring at the lines which get posted at some books as early as just a few hours after the Selection Show. Needless to say, this year was no different in WiseGuyAction's humble bungalow. My ...

Big Ten Conference Alignment Suggestions

Tuesday, June 22nd, 2010

Being An Indiana Basketball Fan Is Awesome

Friday, March 26th, 2010

Yeah, that's right I said it. Rooting for Indiana University's men's basketball team is just freaking great. Not only has my Alma mater been tearing it up on the court the past two seasons (to the tune of a 16-46 record), but hated rival Purdue has become a national power. ...

Big Ten Football Preview:

Thursday, August 14th, 2008

I gave in, not sure to whom, but I gave in nonetheless, and previewed the SEC first despite my allegiance to the Big Ten and my beloved Indiana Hoosiers. This year is going to be either a very interesting year for the Big Ten, or totally unwatchable from start to ...

UFC 87: The Preview

Thursday, August 7th, 2008

The UFC comes dangerously close to over-saturation every year because it seems like they have monthly pay-per-view events. It's too much and sometimes the cards aren't even that great. UFC 87: Seek and Destroy is this Saturday. And, though I love MMA very, very much, I only ever write about ...
