2020 MLB Hall of Fame Ballot: Who Should Get In

Last year, we talked about who deserved to make the Baseball Hall of Fame the most among players on the Baseball Writers Association of America Hall of Fame Ballot, and I mostly agreed with the writers. Eight of the ten players I said I would vote for received greater than 50% of the vote, with... Continue Reading →

Group of 5 Power Rankings: Bowl Season

Congratulations to Memphis for earning the Group of 5's spot in the Cotton Bowl this year, and congratulations to Florida Atlantic, Miami (OH), Boise State, and Appalachian State on their conference championships as well. There's a lot more to a season than a conference championship, though, and we still have a top 15 that reflects... Continue Reading →

Group of 5 Power Rankings: Championship Week

It was a wild final week of the regular season, with a few conference races taking unexpected final turns. For some teams, this week brought jubilation from a berth in their conference championship game, a win over a rival, bowl eligibility secured, or multiple of those things. For others, this week brought heartbreak and/or questions... Continue Reading →

Group of 5 Power Rankings: Week 13

Not a lot of change at the top of this week's rankings for me, as Cincinnati escaped disaster against USF, Memphis and Appalachian State recovered after slow starts, two other top-10 Group of 5 teams had a bye week, and everything went pretty much as expected. To view last week's very similar rankings, click here. The... Continue Reading →

Group of 5 Power Rankings: Week 12

College football got weird this week. Nick Saban looked outcoached, Minnesota hit 9-0 for the first time in over a century, Illinois got to bowl eligible, Indiana got ranked and the ACC fell to having just one ranked team. The AAC has four. I'm not saying the AAC is better than the ACC, but I'm... Continue Reading →

Group of 5 Power Rankings: Week 11

For the second straight year, Georgia Southern knocked off a ranked App State team. Last year, it was an embarrassing 34-14 loss in Statesboro, Georgia. This time, no one saw another upset coming in Boone, but the Eagles didn't care, knocking off the Mountaineers by a final score of 24-21. Georgia Southern now controls their... Continue Reading →

Group of 5 Power Rankings: Week 10

It was a big weekend in college football, but for many of the top Group of 5 teams, it was kind of a snoozefest. The UCF-Temple and Utah State-Air Force matchups ended up being disappointing, and though the Tulane-Navy game ended up a thriller and Memphis got all they could handle from Tulsa, it wasn't...

2019 MLB Award Selections

I obviously don't have an official MLB Awards vote. If I did, however, these would be my picks. I'll be making picks for MVP, Cy Young, Rookie of the Year, Reliever of the Year, and Silver Slugger Awards, I don't think I watched enough baseball this year to make good Gold Glove picks and not...
