It's hard to believe, but the college football regular season for most teams starts tonight. The opening week has an impressive slate of games to kick off the season in what will be another exciting season for college football. With that being said, here are this week's picks.
Did you think that this was going to be a post about Conor McGregor after his superfight with Floyd Mayweather? Well, that has something to do with it. After all, McGregor is one of UFC's most recognizable stars.
This post actually has a lot to do with Jon Jones testing positive for a steroid post-UFC 214. Jones, who was one of UFC's up-and-coming stars and had a high-profile feud with Daniel Cormier, keeps digging himself into holes. So what happens with UFC now?
Dana White is good at marketing his UFC superstars. He promotes the best qualities of his superstars, stemming from their charisma (mostly) to their in-ring abilities. So what he has now is a unique situation. Conor McGregor's UFC future is uncertain. Jon Jones won't get another shot. If White really wants to have UFC thrive, he'll have to market his up-and-coming fighters like Stephen Thompson and Sage Northcutt. Not only that, but he'll have to hope that these fighters have the fighting ability to match their charisma.
As an MMA organization, UFC will have to take a look at many things. They might have to change the way they market their product, focusing more on who can fight rather than who can talk. UFC (and MMA as a whole) is a rising sport, but it doesn't want to end up dead due to the wrong business approach.
MLB instituted a 2nd wild card spot in both leagues in 2012, hoping to ensure that there would be a better chance for teams to make the postseason. Turns out it was a good idea. The 2014 San Francisco Giants were the 2nd wild card in the National League and they went on to win the World Series. As for this year, the race for the 2nd wild card in the American League has been nothing short of exciting, with six teams within three games of the 2nd wild card spot. So who has the advantages to make it and has the disadvantages to fall short?
You probably know which NFL teams will rule the roost this season. You're going to place your bets on teams like New England, Pittsburgh, Green Bay, Seattle, and Atlanta to make the Super Bowl this year. But here are a few teams that you shouldn't fall asleep on this upcoming season.
The NFL regular season is rapidly approaching, which means fantasy football season is around the corner as well. Fantasy football is a popular endeavor among NFL fans as a way to waste time at the office or at home. Many of you have probably drafted your teams already, but here's a list of potential fantasy busts that could impact your team.
With the advent of my site being erected a few weeks ago, I've been handed a tough decision on what to do regarding the "Blog" situation. Do I keep the blogspot site up and work on there or do I blog over here? The decision was a tough one, but it was one with reason. From hereon out, this will be the site that I post blogs on.
My hope is that I will drive views over to this site and build an audience here. It's not to say that I didn't build one at the previous site; I did that. I just want to have people come over to my website to get more visitors here. I want this to take off and I am willing to do what it takes to make it work.
I have high hopes for this site and I hope it works. I will devote more of my time to here and making necessary improvements on here. My hope is that you'll enjoy your time here and take a lot out of your experience here. Enjoy!!
