MLB Hall of Fame 2021 Ballot Preview: Mark Buehrle

With MLB and other sports sidelined right now due to the coronavirus, welcome to part two of our future Hall of Fame class breakdowns. Today we'll be looking at Mark Buehrle, a five-time All-Star who won the 2005 World Series with the Chicago White Sox, where he spent 12 of his 16 MLB seasons. Pre-MLB... Continue Reading →

MLB Hall of Fame 2021 Ballot Preview: Tim Hudson

As most people are aware, there are no professional sports happening in North America, or most of the world, right now due to the coronavirus. I've done MLB Hall of Fame ballot previews/my picks each of the last two years, and figured I could use this time to get a head start on future ballots.... Continue Reading →

Group of 5 Power Rankings: Final

We've reached the end of college football's 150th season (151st? It was branded as "College Football 150" but starting in 1869 would make this year 151). The game has changed a lot since 1869, and "Group of 5" has only become a term in the past ten years. The conference that put six teams in... 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.

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 →
