Florida State would not be undefeated if it was not for Jameis Winston and some of his exploits on the field. Yes, at times he has hurt his football team, but most of the time he always finds a way to bring them back from defeat. That is the mark of a true champion. Bringing your team back when your not playing your best is critical to your success. Jameis Winston has done it time and time again.
Now in little over a week Jameis Winston will face his toughest test yet the Oregon Ducks. His team will need to travel cross country and play a quality opponent and their hostile crowd. Many people feel this will end the streak for Florida State, but I think we will see the opposite happen. It seems when Florida State has there backs against the wall they play better. Jameis Winston is the key to winning this game. If they want to beat the Ducks it will be Jameis Winston leading them once again.

Yes, Riley has won some Bowl games, but is not the kind of guy that has a Championship resume that the Cornhuskers were looking for. Many people think the Cornhuskers could have gotten a better coach and they are probably correct. I am sure Nebraska asked around, but really probably got no one that wanted to leave their programs for the Huskers.
Mike Riley is a good coach and given enough time he maybe able to get the program going where it needs to be. I do know he has some big wins and he is a like able kind of guy. Hopefully, that will transfer into more star players coming to Nebraska. I guess we will just have to wait and see how it all works out. Right now like him or hate him Mike Riley will lead the Cornhuskers into the 2015 season.

Jones was in a tough position as he has Tony Romo and bringing in Manziel would have just caused friction. The team made the right decision, but if Manziel does real well Jones will be kicking himself for a very long time to come. In the NFL you never know how things will work out. One time you can find a gem and sometimes you will not. The verdict is still out on Johnny Manziel.

Yes, James is loved in Cleveland, but around the league I cannot imagine this will sit well. Players just joining the Cavaliers because they think they can win a championship. This just fuels resentment from other teams, fans, and the public in general. Remember when Lebron was going to win not 4, not 5, not 6 okay we know the story Lebron.
Cleveland is slowly becoming the Darth Vader of the NBA. Being hated isn't always a bad thing if you win. The Oakland Raiders are a prime example, but they have not won in a long time. Ask their fans how enjoyable it is to lose season after season. If James wins another championship it will be interesting to see how he is perceived. Will he be loved or marked as Darth Vader forever.

The last few years Dwayne Wade has taken a backseat to let his teammates come to the forefront. This does not mean Wade did not want to it was him being a team player. Yes, he has been injured, but he should be pretty healthy going into this season. Wade also will have a chip on his shoulder. Most people think that Lebron James was the only reason the Heat won their championships.
Dwayne Wade has something to prove and this coming season I expect him to be a standout. With James gone he can be the man once again. Look for Dwayne Wade to have a MVP season. If he does the Heat could head back to the NBA Finals.

The baseball I see today do not even look like the sport I loved growing up as a kid. We have steroids, cheating and all kinds of things going on. It's not about the fans anymore it's all about money and that is sad. There was a time where kids could go to the ballpark and eat hotdogs with their families and try to get a foul ball in their glove along with some autographs.
Where has real baseball gone? Soccer, football, and basketball have taken over for baseball it seems. Little league is getting less players and leagues are vanishing quickly. I fear the sport I love is dying a slow death and my grandson will miss out on all the fun baseball was for me growing up. Hopefully, people will see what the game has become and give it back to the fans. I know that will not happen, but I can dream just like I did about being in the Major Leagues.

Now his coach or even the Baltimore Ravens could also make a stand, but do not look for that to happen. In fact, I bet the Ravens are happy with the punishment as he will only miss two games when he could have missed alot more. I guess the NFL does not consider domestic violence a serious offense, especially when you get four games for PED's. It's a shame that the NFL did not step up and do the right thing, but this really should not surprise anyone that's for sure.

Now we are on the second go around and it looks like James is getting everything he wants once again. James wanted Mike Miller on the team and other players he liked could be next in line. Now don't get me wrong there is nothing wrong with adding pieces to your team, but you can't let James make these kind of decisions.
Many people are on the bandwagon when it comes to getting Kevin Love to Cleveland. I will admit I am not one of those people. Love is a very good player, but to give up Wiggins and others to get him is just not worth it in my opinion. I hope the Cavaliers are not repeating mistakes from the past, but it seems they might be.

Being home is something special for James. Many people will never understand that and that is okay. Yes, Lebron James wants to win a championship in Cleveland, but if he does not that is okay as well. He is doing this on his own terms, which many people never get to do. Lebron James came back to his roots and there is not wrong with that at all. For me coming home was really the only choice he could make.
Cavs owner Dan Gilbert and James both made mistakes, but all will be forgotten if James delivers an NBA championship to Cavalier fans. They are starved for a winner and King James will assume to throne and try to bring them one.

Lebron James started his career in Cleveland and many think that is where he will end it as well. I also am one of those people, but it isn't happening as soon as people think if you ask me. Cavalier fans would love to see King James resign with the Cleveland Cavaliers, but I think it will happen in a couple of years and here is why. The first thing is no matter where he goes he will not sign a long term deal. If he does he will have a opt out clause built in it.
King James has unfinished business in Cleveland and he knows it. James will wait for the Cavaliers to get a few more pieces in place before he heads back. I see it in two to three years. He will still have a lot left in the tank and it will give him a chance to redeem himself in Cleveland. No matter what anyone tells you he did not like how it ended in Cleveland. If he can go back to the Cavaliers and win a title his career will be complete. If fans can wait a few more years I think they could have something special in Cleveland again. Only time will tell if I am right, but it would be a great way to end his career on top with his original team.

If James would leave Miami for another contender people would say he is just chasing championships and not a guy who can stick it out when it gets tough. Now James can really only leave Miami for the Cavaliers. It was a very nice ploy by Pat Riley. Painting James into a corner may be a good thing, but it could also backfire on Riley as well. I really do think James will just stay with Miami in the end as tha is the only logical choice King James has right now.

The Spurs are better in every part of the game right now. They are making the extra pass and playing as a team. Miami looks tired and when you are tired you become a beaten team. I look for San Antonio to end it Sunday, but it will not hurt Lebron's legacy as he is only one man. He did not get the help he needed in the series and that is why they are down 3-1.

One of the biggest problems will be egos. Can Carmelo Anthony work with the Big Three? I just do not see that working out for them. Anthony wants to be the main man and in Miami he will just be part of a group. It sounds good on paper, but in practice it will not work. Fan backlash will be huge as well. Miami is already hated, but it will reach another level altogether.
Other teams will start to put together there own Big Three as well. This is not good for the league as you will have some super teams and ones that will just be average. I think it will water down the product and that is not a good thing at all. In the end, I think this is bad all the way around for basketball.

The Spurs have a real problem is when James is on they have no real answer for him. Until they do it might be tough for the Spurs to win this series. I'm still sticking with the Spurs to win it as I like there depth in a seven game series. I will admit though the Spurs must slow down Lebron James if they want to win down in Miami.

James has to understand if he wants to win a third straight championship he cannot be passive at times. He must go all out in every game. The Spurs are bent on revenge, so he must bring his "A" game every night. James also is the only one that can keep the Big Three together. If Miami loses this championship I look for the Big Three to be no more. James is the one player that can keep this thing together if he wants.
King James will tell you he does not care about his legacy, but that is just not true. If that was he could have stayed in Cleveland and try to win there. He wants as many championships as possible. He really cares about his legacy and how he is perceived. No matter what he tells everyone else he really does care.
Most people do not realize that Coop as he was known could do almost anything with the bat. If you needed a bunt, single or home run he could do it all. He made himself a complete player which is rare in today's game. Even though his numbers were not great in Boston he made up for that in Milwaukee. He helped the Brewers make the playoffs and was a consistent player during his time with the Brewers.
Cooper managed the Houston Astros, but was fired in 2009. He now lives in Texas with his wife Tori and has two grown daughters. Cecil Cooper was not the biggest star in his career, but a player that produced in the clutch and on a consistent basis.

Zimmer was also Joe Torre's right hand man in New York for many years. Zimmer will be missed in the baseball community. My condolences go out to his family and friends. Baseball has lost a great ambassador in Don Zimmer.
First you must not pick and choose whom you suspend. If you suspend one player for throwing at another you need to suspend everyone. This tell players that MLB is not going to be fair when it comes to suspensions. That also means players will take punishments into their own hands even if it means a suspension.
I look for Big Papi to issue his own kind of justice. People may not like how he handles it, but he gave MLB a chance to take care of it and they did not. I guess we will have to wait and see how this all plays out in the end.
The Miami Heat must start quickly out of the game in San Antonio. The Spurs are tough at home and you do not want to give the Spurs and chances so a quick start is very important. Another important thing is to limit second chance shots and play good defense. Do not make nothing easy for the Spurs if the Heat want to win Game 1.
San Antonio has to slow down the Heat by slowing the game up. Miami would rather get up and down the court and this is something that the Spurs want to avoid at all costs. Playing good consistent defense will also be important to the Spurs. San Antonio needs to feed off there home if they want to win.
I like the Spurs to take Game 1 in the series. This is going to be a very long series and even if you lose Game 1 that does not mean you cannot win this series.

Lebron James I think would return to Cleveland in the right situation. Right now it is not the right situation and it could be a number of years before it happens to be. Maybe the only way it could happen would be if Miami starts to struggle and he can convince D-Wade or Bosh to come to Cleveland with him. That would be the only way I can see him returning to Cleveland.

Jerseys are flying off the shelves and season tickets are moving well. Johnny Football has hit Ohio and Browns fan could not be happier. Everything seems right with the Browns, but unless they get some offensive help for Johnny Manziel he will have a short career.
