I'm a 23-year old University of Kentucky graduate, and a proud brother of Phi Sigma Kappa. At UK, I majored in Business Management with a minor in communications. I've watched sports for my entire life, and what the Today Show is to most people, Sportscenter is to me. To have something like Bleacher Report to share my ideas on is definitely a blessing and I hope everyone who reads enjoys!
Just read your article on the new faces in Cincy, and you mentioned Whitlock needed to get stronger. Bengals.com just did a story a few weeks ago of him benching over 400lbs! Here is a video from his days at Wake Forest and he benched 418lbs 5x's. I'm not to sure he can get any stronger than that at 250lbs. http://youtu.be/0cKmMThNvT8

As far as your Bengals article on rest of season projections, I too would like to believe that they will go to the playoffs. The Houston win may be a stretch. So is the win against the Steelers and the Ravens. I've been saying this team has a crack at the playoffs but I don't think they can go 11-5. I think they might go 9-7 and still get in. Depends on how the Steelers hold up. They have to beat who they should beat. In the past, that has been a major issue with the Bengals. IF they win the next two weeks, I give them about a 40% shot to make the playoffs. Either the Bills or the Patriots are a lock for wildcard, that leaves the Bengals, Titans, Raiders and Steelers all fighting for the last spot. The Steelers have come back from the grave too many times to discount. If the Bengals win the next two games, the Tennessee game, in my opinion will determine the playoffs.
Opposing articles on a topic perhaps. Would be good for the sport if we maybe wrote about things on a regular basis.
love your stuff! such a great writer :)
