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!

    I can't say Go Browns (because I'm a Bengals' fan) but I will say Go RedHawks (even though I went to Bowling Green, my wife went to Miami).

    It is absolutely pathetic you would use the gender card in this article! Nothing Chris Paul says insinuates he had an issue with her being a female. You are just as bad as Faux (FOX) News. SHAME ON YOU!

    Not allowing comment on your Lauren Holtkamp article? Are you afraid to be proven wrong and that Chris was correct in his complaints?

    “The NFL has no findings against the Patriots of wrong doing because the refs never properly examined the balls correctly in the first place." -- Let's see if that actually gets covered by the moron haters.

    I used to defend the media against all those who attacked the media. No more. You neutrals have taken innuendo and gossip and trending twitter hoopla to a new level and made asses of yourselves. Pure idiocy. This issue is a national joke -- not the footballs, but the way people who have NO idea what they are talking about, have no access to facts and apparently need to take a remedial course in physics to speak about air pressure have made this into some fake outrage. The media is essentially the same as the commenters that rage on about freaking conspiracies and Kenyan presidents and all kind of nonsense. You people are a freak joke. I have ZERO respect for this bozo writer or any writer that makes claims and plays loose with things they have ZERO understanding or knowledge of. You are a freaking joke.

    In your latest article about twitter reacting to deflategate you said "Tom Brady had to throw the same ball Luck did, though, and he was far more effective and accurate in the conference title romp." This is not true. The Colts have their own 12 balls that they bring and the Patriots had their own balls as well that were deflated. Andrew Luck did not throw any of those deflated footballs

    "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.
