Cowboys Super Bowl Bound?
The statement I am about to make would surely draw a comment that 600 ESPN El Paso's Adrain Broaddus uses often on Cruncthime, "not so fast my friend!'  I'm going to say it anyway though; the Dallas Cowboys are legitimate Super Bowl contenders heading into the final mont…

The Green Bay Packers were on the verge of knocking off the undefeated LA Rams on Sunday until running back Ty Montgomery fumbled a kickoff with 2:05 remaining in the game.  The scene was set for one of the top quarterbacks in the league in Aaron Rodgers to do what he does best, and march down …

Call this the boldest prediction of the week, or call me crazy, I've been called worst in my time, but the UTEP Miners are going to knock off UAB this Saturday at the Sun Bowl to win their first game in nearly two seasons.  The Miners have lost 19 consecutive games, which marks the longest…

UTEP Fans Gone Forever?
In the wake of the ongoing attendance problem that UTEP football has endured for quite some time now, it has lead me to ask two key questions; will fans ever want to come back to the Sun Bowl to watch a program that has been on the decline for years now, and will this issue inevitably lead to the Mi…

Urban Meyer's Suspension is a Pathetic Joke
Often times it saddens me to think about the world that we live in today, as winning in sports at any level seems to be more important than life altering events and problems that everyone has when real life is constantly ongoing.   Take the three-game suspension of Ohio State coach Urban Meyer which…
NFL's New Helmet Contact Rule is a Necessary Evil
Perhaps frustration is the perfect word to describe the feelings of players, coaches and fans of our most popular sport since the preseason began a few weeks ago as a whopping 51 use of helmet penalties have been called on players as of Monday night's game between the Ravens and Colts...
Dez Bryant Belongs in Cleveland
Former Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant arrived in Cleveland on Thursday to meet with the Browns, and quite frankly at this point, he needs to sign with them immediately.  Following a sub-par season for the Cowboys, Bryant was released this past April after spending his entire eight year career…
