NFL draft 2017: When should we expect the 1st round to end?

The 2017 NFL draft will begin this evening at 8 p.m. ET, but when will it end? In the first round, each team has 10 minutes to make their selection. So in theory, the latest the event could go would be until 1:10 a.m. ET. Authentic Womens Jace Amaro Jersey Houstons also arguably the best spot for a rookie QB to land, given that the team made the playoffs a year earlier, already has weapons on offense, and might have the NFLs best defensive player in JJ Watt. Watsons set up to keep winning. Authentic Womens Jimmy Howard Jersey Deshaun Watson draft profile from Shakin the Southland: Deshaun Watson is […]

Providence and California are both far from mid-major programs

Salvador Perez Authentic Jersey All of this is why Miles Bridges surprise announcement that hes putting the NBA on hold for at least another year wasnt just a major win for Michigan State, it was a major win for college basketball. Bridges isnt the first potential lottery pick in recent memory to shock the sports world by electing to play one more season of college basketball. Kris Dunn of Providence made a similar decision two years ago, and so did Cals Ivan Rabb last year. Still, this is different. Aqib Talib Authentic Jersey Providence and California are both far from mid-major programs, but neither demands the same level of annual […]

Tiebreakers and lottery loom

The 2017 NBA Draft order is set … almost. We still need a few ties to be settled by coin flip and there is of course the NBA Draft lottery to look forward to on May 16. That’s where the top 14 picks in the June draft will be determined by random drawing. Otherwise, most teams know where they will pick in June. It’s been easy for me to get caught up in the Mountain West’s rising ceiling during this preview series. I like what Colorado State might become (we already saw the Rams become it for a good chunk of last season), I think Utah State will bounce back, […]

Student with head start in footrace beats Mizzou DB DeMarkus Acy

Elite Kids Marcus Gilchrist Jersey Mizzou had a little contest for fan engagement during halftime of their spring game. Defensive back DeMarkus Acy got in his stance to run a 40-yard dash, while four Missouri students did the same with a seven-yard head start. Adam Humphries Youth Jersey The student said his name was Jevon White, and he was brief when told by a reporter that he outran Acy. Yeah … I thought he was gonna come up on me, but i just ran. Having swung and missed at draft gems like Holloway and Love the year before, Belichick and Co. moved up to grab their tight end of the […]

Last season was Suns coach Earl Watson’s first full season on the bench.

The team gathered Monday for the start of the workouts. “I feel great,” Carr said. “I’ve been running, jumping, throwing, cutting, everything. So I’m ready to rock. I’m ready to do absolutely everything. I did everything my teammates did today. I’ll do everything my teammates will do tomorrow. Geneo Grissom Authentic Jersey “I’m truly blessed that it wasn’t worse. It could have been a lot worse, and it wasn’t, so I’m very thankful for that and just keep praying for the guys who, that day, had the same kind of injury and still going through it.” Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota and Seattle Seahawks receiver Tyler Lockett both suffered broken […]

Moving hockey to the Summer Olympics would be in the NHL’s best interest

Elite Kids Roberto Alomar Jersey What if I told you that hockey originally started in the Olympics as a part of the summer games? It’s true! Hockey originated at the Olympic Games during the 1920 Summer Olympics in Antwerp, Belgium. The sport then lasted just one Olympiad in the summer before being permanently moved to the winter games for the next near century. Technically, it wasn’t even summer when hockey debuted. The tournament was played ahead of the rest of the games, from April 23 to 29. Sportsnet’s piece is a real interesting read, if you have the time for it. So with the news that the NHL is skipping […]

Canada really bounced back this season

Hoo, boy, let’s start with the extremes. It’s always a good idea to be skeptical of big win or loss totals. The Cubs at 95? games seems awfully optimistic … yet it’s nearly an eight-game drop from last year. The Dodgers have won four straight division titles, and they’re favorites for a fifth … but they’ve beat that win total just once in the last four seasons, even with the division titles. They’ve won 94 games or more just twice since winning their last World Series*. That Calder Trophy we mentioned? Yeah, Laine’s likely going to win that. Maybe. It’s really more of a tossup. But still! Laine is tied […]

The NCAA’s 4 biggest titles are all currently held by the Carolinas

Rene Robert Authentic Jersey We came pretty close to having the champions in college sports’ four most popular competitions all come from the same state, with South Carolina making the men’s Final Four and winning the women’s. But North Carolina’s redemption thriller over Gonzaga still means all of Cook Out country* is walking tall. None of that matters right now to anyone in Chapel Hill or anyone who bleeds baby blue. All that matters is that the highlight of Kris Jenkins beating the buzzer isn’t going to cut quite as deeply anymore. All that matters is that order has been restored to North Carolina’s basketball universe. Despite its build-up as […]

Star Lotulelei continues dominant rookie season against Patriots

Authentic Mens Marshall Newhouse Jersey They said he didn’t bring it on every down. They said he wore down late in games. They said his health would be an issue. What they forgot to mention was what a high percentage of his team’s snaps he played, how versatile he was, or how consistently he dominated the point of attack. Despite Atlanta’s offensive woes and New Orleans’ defensive success, the trends say to bet the over. The total has gone over in four of the Saints’ last five games and four of their last six road games. Atlanta’s contests have also hit the over more often than not lately, partially due […]
