Bout to Bubble

As March Madness approaches closer and closer the real mad scramble begins now. As teams who have had better than average seasons try to state there case on why they deserve a spot in NCAA basketball tournament. Teams such as Syracuse, Virginia Tech, Villanova, Ohio State and others must get more quality wins to impress the voters who choose the field of 64 for the NCAA tournament. This can be done in the conference tournaments which begin this week. Also, if any one of these teams wins there conferences tournament it is an automatic bid to the tournament.

Fair Well Favre

A week not many football fans ever wanted to became a reality this past week. On thursday March 6, 2008 Brett Favre retired from football. After 17 years in the NFL Favre hung up his cleats. Favre played the game like it was suppose to be played. The only guy who can say he won 3 MVP's as a Packer is the same one who threw a snow ball at a ref after scoring a touchdown. Favre had also broken many records in his long career. He broke Dan Marino's touchdown record, and longest active streak starting at Quarterback. Brett Favre was a football hero and will be missed greatly by all except the teams that ever had to face him.

Free Agent Market: Now Open

As the Superbowl ends, the combine is done, it is now the beginning of the NFL free agency. A time where teams look to fill the holes on there team before the draft. Its been a busy market as most of the free agents are beginning to sign and get ready for the upcoming season with there new teams. Yet there are still many big name free agents such as Javon Walker, Randy Moss, Daunte Culpepper, and Julio Jones. There has been talk that Moss won't resign with the Patriots and test the market. If so he could get paid very, very well with the season he had last year. The Cowboys, Bears, and Raiders need a wide reciever so those could be places Moss or Walker could wind up.

Overrated? Maybe a little

The NFL interview process started last week by the start of the NFL combine for all want to be professional football players to make there case on why they should get drafted. The combine is in some way overrated. Players can move from getting drafted in the third- fourth round to second maybe first just on if they run a good forty time. Also players draft stock can drop if they don't bench press a decent amount and the scouts then think they are weak. I think the combine is great but all this stuff means nothing when it comes down to actually playing football. So that corner that ran a 4.33 second forty cover a wide receiver on a huge third down play and not get beat? A forty cant tell you that, watching game tape might. The best way to judge talent is watching tape and seeing if the player makes the same mistake over and over. Or if the player corrects the mistake and improves on it. So the combine is great but it shouldn't make a player lose millions because they didn't run a blazing 40 time and then get drafted lower than expected.

Pick a school already!

A couple weeks ago was signing day for college football and the number one high school prospect Terrelle Pryor was suppose to sign with either Ohio State, Michigan, Oregon or Penn State. Well, he ended up choosing none of them. So here all of college football still awaits the decision of this phenom. Yet he didn't pick a school because he felt that he had no time to make a decision once football got over due to basketball and that he needs more time. No. He should have signed just like every one else had too. He is not the only two sport athlete that plays football and basketball. A lot of the kids played basketball who signed places and yet still made their decision on time.
Plus he hurt all 4 of the schools that he has high interest in. The 4 schools could have used that one scholarship they were holding for him on another blue chip prospect or another player that could have helped out there team. It was a selfish act by him and he needs to just pick a school so we can all stop checking scout or to see where he might have signed that day.

Enough is Enough with Steroids

If I could press the fast forward button on life just to get through all these sterio
d alegations I would. When ever you turn on SportsCenter, the first story is always about Roger Clemens saying the same thing and his trainer saying that Roger is lieing. I will have more respect for either of them if they just admit to it. I do not have any problem with Andy Pettite, even after admitting to steriod use. I believe him when he says he used it to get back to full health faster, and not to get an advantage on his oppenents. He went through a couple day of getting critized and it was done. Now Clemens will just keep getting critized through this whole long process. I just want to be able to watch a baseball season and see records be broken without wondering was this guy or this guy on the juice.
