11012939_689022831207513_4472889596463983585_n-300x300

You could make it in the big leagues someday, kid. You got talent I tells ya, and moxie too, kid. Those two old timey borscht beltisms could apply to both the Northwestern and Wisconsin football teams in 2016. By beating the Nebraska Cornhuskers last Saturday night, the Badgers have established themselves as the de facto …

ditka-300x196

Chicago and NFL icon Mike Ditka has long been a product pitchman first and everything else second. The 1985 Chicago Bears season was 31 years ago; his shtick on ESPN (and every other outlet giving him a platform) has been a de facto cartoon for a very long time already. It’s been awhile since Mike …

The Sports Bank.net: Michigan State Football: Preseason Publications are Bullish

no-fly-zone-300x168

Mark Dantonio has definitely changed the culture of Michigan State football, but is it here to stay? Last year had that kind of “it’s now or never” feel to it because the 2015 Spartans were led by a group of very talented seniors having their last hurrah. It did bring about another milestone for the …

The Sports Bank.net: Believeland Review: Solid 30 for 30, but too much ESPNism

Twitimage_400x400

The ESPN Films 30 for 30 series is like eating pizza or having sex- it’s very difficult to get it wrong. Most of the time, the experience is very enjoyable. That said*“Believeland,” the latest 30 for 30 entry, is a very solid entertaining viewing experience, and I’d rather watch Believeland again than just about anything …

Twitimage_400x400

The Chicago Cubs have just unveiled their Opening Day 25-man roster. The 2016 season opener takes place tomorrow night in Los Angeles versus the Angels. It’s the “L.A. Angels,” or if you prefer, the “Anaheim Angels,” but it’s not “The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.” Team names are two words, not five. No one is …

Twitimage_400x400

At this point, John Groce is pretty much Tim Beckman minus the horrendous and embarrassing public speaking gaffes. This past season, Groce’s on-the-court product deteriorated to the same dark depths as the football on-the-field product under Beckman. With yesterday’s news that junior guard Kendrick Nunn was arrested on charges of domestic battery, we’ve now seen …
