An ODU college student, majoring in business IT, and sports broadcasting, or journalism. Mainly topics on NBA or NFL, but will sometimes do a few MLB or NCAA articles. I run a sports talk show with my fellow writer Tyler Santangelo called Cup Check.

Author's Articles:

The playoffs haven't even started yet, but the NBA draft may be one of the hottest topics around the sports world right now.  Who will go first, second, third, and who will win the lottery? All of these questions, but no one knows for sure.  We may not know who will go where, but we all can tell what areas teams need to improve.  Some teams require a lot of improvement, while other teams may need one or two players.  For this article, I'm going to stick with the Oklahoma City Thunder, a team that is at the top of the league, but is a player or two away from being the best team in the league. We all know the star players on the Thunder...

Old Dominion was presented with the opportunity of a lifetime for its football team, a chance to play college football powerhouse Alabama in 2015. Old Dominion football is on the rise, but I don't think anyone saw Alabama knocking at the program's door -- especially since the football program just got restarted in 2009. So something this huge for the football program has to be an easy answer, correct?  Not so fast, my friend... Alabama wanted to play Old Dominion in 2015 at Bryant-Denny Stadium. Not only would this be a huge step for the football program, but it would be a huge cash infusion for the Monarchs. The number that has been...

With Northwestern football recently winning a landmark ruling from the National Labor Relations Board that grants scholarship football players the right to form a union as university employees, the debate has commenced about whether unionization could be good or bad for college football. Two of our writers, Zach Bigalke and Alex Brooks, have divergent opinions on the subject. You can find Zach's article here. The Northwestern football organization now has the right to form a union. All of this came about because the players want to be paid for the work that they put out every Saturday during football season. But no matter what they...

It’s NCAA Tournament time, and everyone is trying to fill out their brackets and predict who will fit the glass slipper this year.  There are a few teams that could make a deep run, but it is those pesky teams that take out the high seeds early and ruin your “Billion Dollar Bracket.”   Bold Prediction #1:  Baylor will make the Elite Eight At the beginning of the season, Baylor was playing horrible basketball, and look like they would be lucky to finish .500, much less make the big dance.  They ended the season strong, however, going 10-2 in their last 12 games.  They score 75 points a game, making them one of the...

Welcome to the final week of the Sports Unbiased Mailbag. The way it works is, you the reader, send us, Alex and Chris, your sports questions. Then we sit down and write out our takes on the question. Most of the time we disagree, but every once in awhile Chris decides to take the right side and agree with Alex. This will be the last Mailbag, so enjoy it and thank you for the support that the readers have given us.   The Patriots lost Aqib Talib to the Broncos, but they got Darrelle Revis.  Which is the bigger move? Alex: It has to be the Broncos picking up Talib. Not only did they get a stellar defensive back, but they also stole...

On Wednesday the agent for Steve Smith announced that he will not be returning to the Panthers, the only team he has been with since 2001.  Smith is a 34 year old wide receiver with 14 years of experience, 12,197 receiving yards, and 67 touchdowns.  His yardage puts him among the top 20 receivers of all time, and his touchdowns place him tied at 39th.  His career stats are good, but he is aging quickly. Smith's speed was his main weapon, and with his aging body, that speed is also fading fast.  He is such a short receiver that he doesn't have many other skills that would put him over the top, other than the speed he once had.  Smith...
