Will The Final Four End Kentucky's Streak?

The Kentucky Wildcats perfect run almost ended at the hands of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, but the Wildcats proved they are not ready to lose just yet. Could Kentucky's run becoming to an end? The truth is they will have two tough games if they want to be perfect and hoist another National Championship banner up. All three teams left can beat Kentucky if they do not play well. Many people think it is just a matter of time before the Wildcats go down, but I'm not so sure about that one.
 
It seems Kentucky has the will to win and at the end does whatever is needed to get the win. When things go wrong they do not seem to get to rattle and they ride the storm very well. The Harrison Brothers seem to relish in the spotlight and make the plays when it is needed. Karl Towns played a monster game against Notre Dame and kept Kentucky in the game. One of the main reasons it is hard to beat the Wildcats is they have a variety of people who can get hot and carry them to a victory. This is why I think Kentucky will finish undefeated and set history.

Can Notre Dame Stop Kentucky's Streak?

The Notre Dame have been a pleasant surprise in the March Madness tournament and they have a tall order Saturday Night against the Kentucky Wildcats. Notre Dame does boast one of the best shooting teams in College Basketball. Kentucky on the other side of the ball has one of the best defensive teams in College Basketball. We have the best offense against the best defense this should be a game for the ages. Who wins it?

Notre Dame is a very good team, but in close games it always comes down to getting stops and Kentucky is the best in the nation. It seems the Wildcats always rise up for a challenge and I think this will be no different. Notre Dame will put up a fight, but in the end Kentucky is just too deep and has to many weapons for the Fighting Irish. Defense wins championships and that will not change anytime soon. Take Kentucky in a close game to move on.

Do We Need To Expand The College Football Playoff Already?

Now that the first College Football Playoffs is in the books there is talk about expanding it already. There are many reasons people want to do this, but will it work for everyone involved. Let's look deeper into expanding it and why it really is not a good idea right now. First of all ESPN has a contract with it so that would have to be changed and I do not see ESPN wanting to change that anytime soon. The second major problem is the student athlete already puts in enough time and making them miss more classes just makes no sense. 

Expanding it right now would mean more games and that will not help anyone right now.
No matter how many teams you expand it to someone will get left out and complaints will come. This is why for the time being four will have to suffice. Teams and their fans will always think they deserve to be in the playoffs. I will admit that TCU got hosed this season, but many years back so did Boise State. No system is perfect and no matter how many teams we add someone will complain. Right now it is the best we got right now, so enjoy the college football playoffs for what it's worth.

Why Lebron James And Cavaliers Continue To Struggle

Lebron James was coming back to Cleveland to bring them a NBA Championship, but right now it looks like anything but a championship team. James has been injured and not playing up to his NBA ability at times and that has only been part of the problem. It seems Kevin Love is not involved enough as he is confused on his role on the team. David Blatt the coach really has no answers and many times the Cavaliers just tune him out. Can the season be saved?

I think the season can still be saved for the Cavaliers, but several things must happen. The first is these players must listen to James. It seems many are tuning him out and that is part of the problem. Getting Kevin Love more involved is critical if they want to see success. Making trade after trade is not the answer either. Stick with a core group and work with them until you get better. It will not happen overnight, but keep making changes is not the answer. I think some of the players feel resentment towards King James as well even if they do not want to admit it. Right now the Cavaliers are not a good team and unless something changes soon they may not even make the playoffs.

TCU Still Getting No Respect From Voters

Now that the college football season is officially in the books you would think TCU would finally get some respect from the voters, but they have not. Ohio State is a deserving National Champion, but TCU is still getting no respect. Out of all the teams I watch in the bowl games TCU was by far the most dominate by far. Now comes the AP vote and TCU finishes in third place behind an Oregon team that got there lunch handed to them. A two loss team finishes above TCU you got to be kidding me. Is there anything TCU can do about it?

The only saving grace for The Horned Frogs is they will be one of the favorites to win the National Title next season along with the Ohio State Buckeyes once again. TCU will have a chance to make the playoffs and make a statement against the elite in College Football. This season I do not think they got a fair shake, but sometimes that is what happens in College Football. TCU will learn from the mistakes they made and make sure it does not happen again. The 2015 College Football season should be another wild ride thats for sure.

Football Gods Turn Tables On Dez Bryant And Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys seen them get the benefits of some calls against the Detroit Lions last week, but this week the football gods turned the tables on the Dallas Cowboys. Dez Bryant made a catch on fourth down to set up the Cowboys on the Packers one yard line, but a challenged was made and it was overturned. Bryant did come down and did lose a little control of the ball which was against the rules. Many Cowboy fans will be upset, but that is what happens in close games it comes down to a few plays here or there and this game was no exception. It was a close call, but that is not why the Cowboys lost the game.

Green Bay and Aaron Rodgers played better in the second half and made enough plays to win the game. In close games it many times comes down who plays the best at the end. Both teams fought hard and it could have went either way. It is a shame that both teams could not have won the game, but you can only have one winner. The Dallas Cowboys had a good season, but just like teams before them they found out beating the Packers and Aaron Rodgers at home is very tough. Green Bay moves on and now will head to Seattle to take on the Seahawks for a chance to go to the Super Bowl.

Why Dez's catch wasn't a catch in Cowboys-Packers

Dallas vs Green Bay The Winner Is.......

The Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers hook it up today in what should be a very entertaining football game.  Weather should be cloudy with a chance for snow. This should favor the Packers, but when you talk about the playoffs that weather should not effect the Cowboys to much.  Dallas must control the ball and score at every opportunity they are given. Tony Romo must protect the ball and limit his mistakes. DeMarco Murry and Dez Bryant will need to come up big as well. As far as the Cowboys defense they must make Aaron Rodgers and the Packers earn their points.

Green Bay will go as far as Aaron Rodgers will carry them. Rodgers is excellent in the cold and at home. Beating Rodgers at home is tough. The Cowboys do have the weapons to do it, so turnovers will be key for Rodgers. Ball control and limiting mistakes is something that Rodgers does very well. Defensively, the Packers cannot let Murray or Bryant hurt them. Romo will make some plays, but you cannot not let him get confident. It seems when Romo gets on a roll he is tough to stop.

I like the Packers in this game because they are at home. Aaron Rodgers rarely loses at home. Take the Packers at home by a score of 34-27.
