  1. Mark Cuban will Fail

    I like Mark Cuban a lot. I think he brings Marketing and business savvy that most owners somehow leave at the curb when they buy a team.

    But Mark's new venture is doomed. You can see it in his two posts on his blog. Dec. 17 and Dec. 18 posts.

    First one starts out full of enthusiasm. Second one is retrenching.

    The BCS equation is simple. Remember 3 numbers and you have it mastered. 750, 145, and 650. ...

  3. Running Backs, the complete edition

    So, week 16 is done, and now we know pretty much who the ebst RBs are out there. Let's see what my constantly updated IRE says:

    1 Brandon Jacobs, RB The beast is back. A TD machine, but also somehow busting those big 20+ yarders again.

I know that my passion for sports has declined as well. Sure, I still get teary eyed once in a while, but rarely do I care about losing anymore. Winning, sure, is still great.

  5. 1 Simple Rule to fix the NCAA - The High School Draft

    I was asked recently what I would do to fix the NCAA. I said I didn't have a solution. I do now.

    As best as I can tell from the outside the NCAA rules seem to be grouped into 3 types.

    1) Recruiting violations.

    2) Things to prevent athletes, once at school, from cashing in on their fame.

    3) Things to keep athletes away from agents and their ilk.
