Weekly Ramblings – January 3

Considering it’s been at least three weeks since we properly rambled, we’ll omit the usual pleasantries and just dive in. We got a lot of problems with you people, and now you’re going to hear about them!  First, it’s 2021. All we heard in the run up to New Year’s Day was how terrible 2020 was and how ready everyone was for a new year. We just wantContinue reading “Weekly Ramblings – January 3”

CFPick December 19

The latest College Football Playoff rankings came out, and football media got all worked up because these venerable sports writers disagreed with the rankings. And, there were some valid complaints, but there’s also a fair amount of unnecessary angst. You can view the full rankings here, but from what we read, here were the top three complaints, and our response: Continue reading “CFPick December 19”

Weekly Ramblings December 13

We’re back, and we’re about the same as we’ve always been, but thanks for asking. We’ll get to some of our thoughts on the actual games that we’re played over the past week, but we’ll begin with last Sunday’s episode of 60 Minutes.  We’re generally not smart enough to critique anything that 60 Minutes does, but this time theyContinue reading “Weekly Ramblings December 13”

Ramblings, Picks and Duke Losing

Weekly Ramblings – November 29

We’re still in a bit of a food coma after Thanksgiving, so forgive us if this is brief.

Carolina Basketball Season Preview

Wednesday marked the beginning of the college basketball season, and like everything this year, it didn’t go exactly as planned.

Weekly Ramblings – November 22

After our exhaustive, or perhaps exhausting, coverage of The Masters, we gave our staff most of the week off in order to recover. That was a lot of pimiento cheese, after all. Regardless, we’ve located all of our pants with elastic waistbands and we’re back with our usual Sunday stroll through the world of sport.  College Football  COVID continues to dominate, but college football is pressing on, and we’d expect nothingContinue reading “Weekly Ramblings – November 22”

Saturday Masters Update

Apparently, more golfers need to embrace the sandwich as their favorite Masters tradition. Enough of the Green Jackets, the Par 3 Contest or skipping balls across the pond at 16 during practice rounds. It’s all about the sandwiches. And Masters Sunday will be all about DJ.   Despite all the big names bunched on the leaderboard going into the third round, oneContinue reading “Saturday Masters Update”
