NBA What-If Wednesday: Part 2

Happy Wednesday and welcome back to another edition of What-if Wednesday: NBA Edition. If you didn’t read that in a deep voice, you missed my point of adding NBA Edition. Anyway, for some, this last week the NBA would have been put on the backburner to football, but not to us. We are the few, the ...

Considering the Colts: Indy drops pivotal game

Houston was finally able to get over the hump and beat the Colts in Houston. Even though the Texans have taken control of the division, hope is not all lost for the Colts. At 6-5, the playoffs are still in play for this Indianapolis Colts team. This loss does make it that much harder to claim a playoff ...

Pacers Report Card through November

The Pacers can easily be mistaken for an infirmary at this point, as most of their players have missed games because of various injuries. However, this has not stopped the Pacers train from chugging along, as they’re currently sitting with an 8-6 record and with a point differential of 4.3 points ...

Hoosier State Hoops: First week thoughts on IU

The Indiana Hoosiers are one young team, and the “cupcake” games show that they are blowing teams out. However, I think the expectations and what we have seen from Indiana need to take a pause.  Justin Smith has been dominating in his first couple of games. His energy, hustle and discipline helped ...

Jags win in thriller with SIU

As Destiny Perkins dribbles down the court, the ring of a whistle echoes throughout The Jungle. With 39 fouls during the game, there was a foul called about every 58 seconds. Even with a lack of momentum due to stoppages, Coach Austin Parkinson and his squad were able to pull out a 81-78 win against ...

Considering the Colts: Indy looks to clean it up against Miami

The Colts let another one slip away against the Steelers. They should have won, but who would have predicted that Quenton Nelson would injure Jacoby Brissett? What made this game even more perplexing than it already was is the fact that Brian Hoyer came in and played well, minus the key pick-six by ...

With the NFL season about halfway over with, now is the perfect time to analyze the best teams in the league.

Pondering the Pacers: Way too early report card

The Pacers have been bad to start the season. Even with a win on Wednesday, it has not looked good. That being, beating Brooklyn while enduring the loss of Myles Turner impresses me as well. That being said, let’s get to the grades: Impressive Malcolm Brogdon, A Were I to declare a standout player ...

Crossroads College Football: Hoos that? The Hoosiers

For over two decades, the Indiana Hoosiers (6-2) have struggled to accomplish a record that was over .500. In fact, since 1994, the Hoosiers have been able to accomplish the feat once. In 2007, the school went 7-6. However, the 2019 Hoosiers are off to their best start since 1993, a year in which they ...

Offensive attack leads Jags to 3-2 victory over Green Bay

As the breeze rips through Carroll Stadium, the Jags’ Miranda Ricks nets the third goal to go up 3-0 in the 18th minute. Unfortunately for IUPUI, this would just be the beginning of a hard fought win. With this win, the Jags are guaranteed at least a three seed in the Horizon League Playoffs. When ...

Considering the Colts: Trap Game awaits Indy this week

Last time I checked, a win is a win and I’ll take it.  The Denver defense is not ranked 4th in the league for no good reason, and they gave the Colts offense fits all afternoon long. I expected the offensive line to be tested, but not to break down so often. It seemed as if Jacoby Brissett was uncomfortable ...

Pondering the Pacers: Pacers have room for improvement

The Pacers lost their home opener on Wednesday night to the Detroit Pistons. It was a close game, as the final margin was 119-110. However, there were some concerns that I had before the start of the season that popped up in Wednesday’s game.  Cons For starters, Andre Drummond completely pantsed ...
