Pancakes

Here’s your headline of the day. I saw this story first thing on Friday morning. Naturally, it started to appear everywhere given its comical nature. We joke about the Kevin Costner “Pancake-Eating (Expletive)” rant from the movie Draft Day during out shows on FOX Sports Radio and even celebrate a segment called Hot Takes & […]

It’s time to put the ball back up. Tipoff for Sunday’s games is just moments away when Michigan and Louisville get after it. We’re ready. We’re sitting at 23-15-2 ATS through three days. —– Louisville – 3 1/2 Michigan Wichita State +5 Kentucky Michigan State +8 Kansas UNC -11 Arkansas Rhode Island +5 1/2 Oregon […]

Getting in at the wire. Here are the picks for Saturday after a strong Round 1. Notre Dame + 2 1/2 West Virginia Wisconsin + 6 Villanova Northwestern + 11 Gonzaga Xavier + 7 Florida State Middle Tennessee St + 3 Butler Arizona – 6 St. Mary’s CA Virginia + 2 Florida Iowa State – […]

I won’t do a big preamble here. We went 11-4-1 on Thursday. Let’s follow it up with another big day. Michigan -3 Oklahoma State Seton Hall +1 Arkansas SMU -6 1/2 USC Louisville -19 1/2 Jacksonville St Michigan State +2 1/2 Miami Duke -20 Troy Wichita St -6.

Participating in the world of sports talk radio (weeknights 8-11p PT on FOX Sports Radio) requires analysis, bold predictions and more than a few instances of hot take nonsense. In that vein, I present my picks ATS for Thursday’s NCAA Men’s Tournament action. * Picks are for entertainment purposes only. The numbers were taken off […]

Lock and load. The countdown clock is quickly ticking toward zero. And I’m in from the opening tip through the championship game. Sure, my attention will turn to Salt Lake City and the first-round matchup between my beloved Northwestern Wildcats and the Vanderbilt Commodores. Now I want to start singing “Easy” or one of the […]

Pork Chop Finish

Fun times today inside The Dome. We’re ready to unleash a whole new world of hot takes, stat pulls and analysis as NFL Free Agency kicks into gear. Yes, we’ll talk a lot about Kirk Cousins and the whereabouts of Tony Romo. We’ll eagerly await the next home for Martellus Bennett and Adrian Peterson. I […]

I still want to know what happened to the wigs that were left over when Manny Ramirez left Los Angeles during the 2010 season (he was waived and joined the White Sox). They were hot sellers for a while in Dodger Stadium gift shops at a cool $25 each. Perhaps they can be repurposed with […]

It’s time for the fantasy playoffs. Can the big QBs rebound from sub-par Week 14 performances? 2016 Fantasy Football Rankings powered by FantasyProsECR ™ – Expert Consensus Rankings

Richard Sherman said it all. While you may not be excited for this matchup, they still have to play it. The Seahawks are prohibitive favorites and offer myriad fantasy options. We’ll see if Jared Goff can find a crack in the Earl Thomas-less Seattle defense or whether the fans warm up to celebrate a huge […]

You blink and the season just rolls by. It’s already Week 13 of the NFL season, and fantasy owners are wringing their hands and trying to secure playoff seeding, a playoff berth or to play spoiler. OK, like the Browns (on a Bye, by the way), there are going to be teams simply playing out […]

It’s that time again. Three games are in the books for Week 12 of the Fantasy Football campaign. All teams are participating in this week’s festivities, including an intriguing Arizona-Atlanta matchup and a beautiful Kansas City-Denver showdown. Will Rob Gronkowski be ready for a full snap count, or is a decoy day ahead? Lock it […]

The chase for the fantasy playoffs is heating up. Fantasy owners received a lackluster effort from Cam Newton on Thursday against the Saints. There’s no Gronk for the Patriots’ visit to San Francisco. And Jared Goff is starting in Los Angeles against the Dolphins. There are plenty of storylines to follow – and no, I’m […]

We’ll get some real football weather tonight when the Bears travel to Lambeau Field for a date with the enigmatic Packers. Game-time temperatures are expected to dip to 45 degrees. Can Aaron Rodgers reverse recent woes and bad headlines in a primetime slot against the division rival Bears? The line of Thursday morning was “he […]

Lock and load. We’re back with updated Week 6 rankings. We’ve got weather, health concerns (that time of the year) and the Vikings and Buccaneers on a Bye week. 2016 Fantasy Football Rankings powered by FantasyProsECR ™ – Expert Consensus Rankings

The cycle churns quickly. We’re already counting down the minutes until the start of Week 6. Trevor Siemian returns to the fray for Denver as they battle the 1-4, snake-bitten Chargers. Can Philip Rivers solve the Denver defense? We also see Colin Kaepernick back on the field for the 49ers in Buffalo. Is the Rex […]

The 2016 season is already flying into Week 6. Fantasy squads have been decimated by injuries, Bye weeks and general ineffectiveness/inconsistency. Even the greats like Julio Jones have left fantasy owners flat a few times this season. The waiver wire will be churning at a rapid pace ahead of Week 6. Players such as Chris […]

Yes. Tom Brady returns to the field following a questionable (to my eyes, anyway) suspension. Yes, Rob Gronkowski is ready (we think) to quiet the supermarket gawkers. Week 5 of the NFL season began with the Drew Stanton-led Cardinals beating the 49ers. Following the game, details started to emerge about a possible restructuring of Colin […]

I’ll cut to the chase. It’s time to roll things up on Week 4. We await Friday practice reports for updated injury information, but kickoff for Thursday night football is nigh. Here are my first-look rankings for Week 4. I expect the rain to bode well for the Bengals RBs. Giovani Bernard even launched into […]

Week 4 of this NFL season brings a number of wrinkles. First, the dreaded Bye weeks begin and blow holes in our lineups. That’s right. You already need to account for the losses of Aaron Rodgers and Jordy Nelson this week. Sure, you lose Carson Wentz and Jordan Matthews, but this would have been the […]

It’s time for another big run in fantasyland. LeGarrette Blount got things started with a huge night against the Texans behind Jacoby Brissett. Today’s action features a host of intriguing matchups, including the Battle for Pennsylvania (Read: Wentz vs. the Steelers) and another helping of the Bears in primetime against Dak Prescott and the Dallas […]
