NFL Draft Top 10 Results

Image
Last night was the first round of the NFL Draft, and I got 3 of the first 10 picks right.  That's 30%, which is good right?!  No not good at all.  What makes it worse is the first 2 picks we're almost a shoe in (Goff and Wentz) and even the other pick I got right, Jalen Ramsey, was a pretty easy one.

We're just 9 days away from the start of the 2016 NFL Draft on Thursday, April 28 @8p.m. ET.  Here is my mock draft for the first 10 picks.  (Team needs in parentheses)

A 16-Team Playoff Makes Sense

Image
While we're still a few months from the college football season, I found myself thinking about the playoff this morning.  While the 4 team playoff they implemented 2 seasons ago is a start, I think it still needs to expand more and I think the magic number is 16.  A 16 team playoff to me just makes sense.  Currently there are 10 conferences in the football bowl subdivision: American Athletic Conference, Atlantic Coast Conference, Big Ten Conference, Big 12 Conference, Conference USA, Mid-American Conference, Mountain West Conference, Pac-12 Conference, Southeastern Conference, and Sun Belt Conference.  There are also 3 Independent school who currently have no conference affiliation, and those are Army, Notre Dame, and BYU.  To level the playing field I think these teams will need to join a conference to be eligible for the playoff.

So with 10 conferences, that means there would be 10 automatic bids given to each conference champion leaving 6 spots for at-large bids of teams that …

Historic Night in the NBA

It was a night to remember for the NBA last night.  Kobe Bryant scored 60 points in his final game as the Los Angeles Lakers upset the Utah Jazz 101-96 effectively eliminating them from playoff contention.   On the same night one of the greatest ever hung them up, the Golden State Warriors capped off the greatest (record wise) regular season in NBA history beating

EA Sports NCAA Football

Should EA Sports start making NCAA Football again?  Could they make it without any legal hurdles?  I think they have to make it again.  It's an iconic video game that many people look forward to playing year after year.

72 Wins

Image
The Golden State Warriors tied the NBA record for wins in a season set by the 1995-95 Chicago Bulls last night with a 92-86 victory in San Antonio.  That makes 3 times that the Warriors defeated the Spurs this regular season.  In typical Spurs fashion however, they are lamenting on this loss and are looking ahead to the playoffs, still believeing that they have a team that can make a run and beat the Warriors.

With just 2 games remaining in the regular season, the Golden State Warriors are just 1 win away from tying the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls record of 72-10.  If the Warriors want to break the record they're going to have to win both games, which isn't going to be easy.
