Joseph graduated from Kent State in 2012 with degrees in political science and newspaper journalism, and he has no idea what to do with them.

He's a member of B/R's Breaking News Team.

In a men's bathroom, Jim Thome once told a young Joseph to always wash his hands after using the restroom. Since that turning point, Joseph's life has never been the same.

His work has been featured on CNN.com, World Football Daily and his mother's refrigerator. He's just biding his time until he wins the lottery and can retire at a young age.

    People really don't can about the national anthem. Why? This country is a fraud! ALL OF IT!

    Joseph, please learn some critical thinking skills. Per your memory of Draymond Green punching Lebron in the groin, that simply did not happen. Ad nauseum, the league could only subjectively determine that Green may have taken a swipe at Lebron's groin and had missed making contact. No one other than you and the Cavs fans believes Green was trying to hit Lebron in his privates. Moreover, Green was looking away at the time. We believe the league did not want the series to end in 5 games. The league also wanted the heart-warming, long-sought championship for Cleveland and they wanted to reward Lebron for coming back to Cleveland.

    You should argue that Baylor SHOULD fire Briles! He's a liability!

    In your article about the deflategate resolution you stated that Jimmy Garapolo was drafted in the 1st round. He was not. He was drafted in the 2nd round.

    Re: the terrorism risk of a NFL stadium in Carson; there is an excellent novel by Thomas Harris (before he introduced us all to Hannibal Lechter) called "Black Sunday" which was adapted into an excellent movie thriller of the same name.

    If two or four teams from One conference OR ANOTHER think they are DIVINELY APPOINTED to PLAY in the NC GAME and DENY all other worthy TEAMS a chance, then it is TIME for a little March Madness in the world of college football. Lets have a REAL PLAYOFF and call it December MADNESS. And a $BILLION in travel and TEAM revenues.

    Here we go again. College foot ball fans MEEKLY accepting the NONSENSE put out by the MEDIA that a REAL football playoff of 32 teams is IMPOSSIBLE, too burdensome, or TAKES too much TIME from CLASS.
    Basketball does it with 64. College football can easily do it with a 32 team playoff. No more BITTER FANS screaming MY TEAM got LEFT OUT. Basketball has March Madness. COLLEGE FOOTBALL needs December Madness.

    ALABAMA in all its GREATNESS Lost a last Second STUNNER. Then the UNFAIR bullet or restriction BACKFIRED on them. Now they and about 30 or 40 or 60 other schools MUST SIT on the sidelines and Compete for LESSER GLORY than the NC TITLE. This is Totally Unnecessary and listen or read on :

    I thought America had no ROYATY. Prince William gets to be King of England by doing nothing. He was BORN that WAY.
    I think that Alabama is a Magnificent machine , a Great football team, but it has humans on its team. Humans Err. They are not Gods. No team Deserves the NC Game. You lose . YOU are out.
    The SEC IS a truly powerful Conference. Three years ago the BCS robbed Oklahoma State which was 11-1 the chance to play in the NC TITLE. REmember They were 11-1. Alabama was awarded the game against TWO LOSS LSU.
    Nothing FAIR ABOUT THAT. Oklahoma State Would have been CHOSEN in a real Playoff. OKLAHOMA UPSET Alabama last year. In a continuation of Genuine PLAY They WOULD have met Florida state. TREVOR KNIGHT against the Seminoles. Do you like the ODDS.
    NO BCS. No 4 TEAM Playoff. But a 32 Team or 64 TEAM Playoff can work. Here is how:

    First, Leave all FBS teams with the Fun and Reward of Playing the 30 plus Bowl Games. And 4 PLAYOFF BOWLS would be used on Jan 1 each year for the Elite 8 CFB playoff BOWLS.
    And A $BILLION IN PLAYOFF MONEY In Gate receipt$, Hotel, tourist MONEY, Sueveniers and TRAVEL for the cities and Teams involved.

    A Simple Guide by J D
    FACT: There are always 13 SATURDAYS in the 92 days of September thru November.

    STEP ONE: Require all teams to finish their 12 GAMES by the END of NOVEMBER. There would be TIME for ONE OPEN DATE . Or TWO using the LAST SATURDAY in AUGUST.
    STEP TWO: Have an NCAA selection committee PICK the TOP 32 Football Teams: FOUR Divisions would be set up:
    East, South, Midwest, West.
    Four Number One Seeds would be chosen in each Division and progressively on down: Number Two through Eight.
    SEED Number One would play Number Eight, Number Two plays Number Seven and so on.

    STEP THREE: SIXTEEN GAMES would be played ( 32 Chosen Teams) on the First Saturday in December. The SWEET SIXTEEN winners would play on the second Saturday in December.
    STEP FOUR: The Elite Eight Winners are in the HIGHEST FOUR BOWLS called CHAMPIONSHIP BOWLS and would be played on New Years Day.
    STEP FIVE: The FOUR QUARTER FINAL TEAMS play their TWO GAMES on January 8 or later.
    STEP SIX : THE FINALS: 2 WINNERS would play a week later near January 17 for the NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP.
    Conclusion: Only FOUR TEAMS would NEED to PLAY past the HOLIDAY Weekend of January the 1st. And the REST of the TEAMS could GO BACK TO their Studies and Classes.

    Also: The 30 plus BOWLS are kept . The LOSERS in the FIRST or SECOND Round can PLAY again in any BOWLS but the FOUR CHAMPIONSHIP BOWLS and win and rejoin the Top Twenty five.

    Remember any team LOSING in the FIRST or SECOND WEEK of the Playoffs could STILL be INVITED to ONE of the 30 plus bowls.
    IF TEAMS THINK They are the BEST, then let them PROVE IT on the Battlefield of Play. ONE team out of the 32 Teams chosen will win 5 games in a row and be true National Champ.!!!

    Thanks for reading . My main concern is that somewhere, somehow, in my lifetime an Unfair 4 TEAM Playoff will be abolished. Every 8-3 team in the top 40 or 65 Teams will have respect and a chance to win it all.
    This will bring in $1 BILLION dollars or more to the Teams and their Schools.

    There's a noticeable typo in your write up on USA v Honduras: "while coach Jurgen Klinsmann is trying to figure out is best defensive combination."
