This is now the 12th edition of my column, and I can’t think of a better game to discuss. The Seahawks have propelled themselves into their second consecutive Super Bowl.

I raced to the board and ferociously scribbled the answer to almost every question that was posed. My math teacher was dumbfounded...

November 5, 2014

Do we expect too much as fans, analysts, players, or coaches? All we want to do is win after all. However too many of us expect young quarterbacks to come in to the NFL and play like they've already been through a couple Pro Bowls. Alright, I might be exaggerating slightly here but all in all I think we place too much expectation on them while at the...

Ah, fall, the time of year when leaves change, everything tastes like pumpkin and excitable freshmen arrive at college for the first time, looking bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. One of the strangest things about college is the sudden “adultness” of life, especially from a health perspective. Sure, in some cases parents may still pay the bills,...
