About

Here at B/R, I am a Breaking News Team writer. I am a Featured Columnist for golf and my very favorite professional sports franchise, the Cleveland Browns.

I graduated from Miami University with degrees in journalism and political science in May 2012, so I love me some RedHawks hockey, too!

    Really?
    "Kershaw, despite dominating headlines from Monday's event, will be remembered most for falling short in the 2014 playoffs"
    I guess you didn't watch Kershaw pitch the whole season. And he will win the CY again and most likely MVP of the NL.

    Last fall, Oklahoma beat Alabama by 2 and half touchdowns. September found the SEC darlings ranked higher than Oklahoma. The Sec plays a patsy none conference schedule. Only a real 32 team CFB playoff with the "wars" decoded on the field will ever be JUST & FAIR. ALL OTHER sports, baseball, basketball use this time honored method. Here is a simple plan I submitted 3 years ago that keeps the 30 bowls PLays only 2 weeks in December Madness, Dec 1, Dec 8 and 4 Top BOWLS on Jan 1, and the second and 3rd week of January to achieve a fair Champ in only 5 games.

    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.

    Several teams are entering this phase of the international basketball tournament with perfect 5-0 records, including the United States and Spain.

    DEAR MATT

    THAT IS WRONG

    ONLY 3 TEAMS ENETERED THE PHASE OF 16 WITH PERFECT RECORD;
    GREECE 5-0
    SPAIN 5-0
    USA 5-0

    IN ALPHABETICAL ORDER


    SO
    NEXT TIME REPORT EXACTLY FOR ALL TEAMS WORTH IT AND NOT ACCORDING TO YOUR SYMPATHY OR NOT

    Your article re: Tiger Woods being a Ryder Cup pick is flawed. The record you posted is incorrect and was his record prior to the 2012 RC. His current record is 13-17-3 and (if not mistaken) Woods has only been on one winning team. So much for "dynamic personality". To contend that Woods can win at Valhalla because he won there 14 years ago is an assumptive leap without much supporting evidence. Bear in mind 14 years ago Woods drove the ball better than anyone and scrambled better than anyone and putted lights out. Today none of those things exist. Given just these issues, how can you justify picking Woods over 58 more qualified players ? In sports it's not what you were, it's what you are.

    i see you turned the comments off, on the michael sams story. why are all the media sources shoving this down our throats, but very few of them have the backbone to allow us to respond. and for the record, people who hate this, and who think it is disgusting, ARE NOT HOMOPHOBIC. they are decent people who know the difference between right and wrong. and if you want to put the whole, who says what is right or wrong question out there, i will not ignorantly bite on the religious, or freedoms argument, which are easy targets. i will use the one target that is unquestionable, biology. it is biologically wrong. period! we are not afraid of homosexuality, we are just disgusted by it, and sick of hollywood and the american media shoving it in our faces, and those of our innocent children. you are all shameful sellouts.
