My Writing for 2/28/2013

http://www.rantsports.com/mma/2013/02/28/cain-velasquezantonio-silva-rematch-for-ufc-heavyweight-title-a-hasty-booking-decision/

My thoughts on Antonio Silva getting a UFC heavyweight title shot.

http://www.rantsports.com/ncaa-football/2013/02/28/its-time-for-the-south-carolina-gamecocks-to-put-up-or-shut-up/

My belief is that if the South Carolina Gamecocks are going to win the SEC title and/or compete for a national championship, it needs to be now.

http://www.rantsports.com/ncaa-football/2013/02/28/jeff-driskel-will-need-to-up-his-game-for-the-florida-gators-in-2013/

Florida Gators quarterback Jeff Driskel needs to step up his game in 2013. With the loss of Mike Gillislee, the Gators won't have the running attack they had last year, and that will automatically put the pressure on Driskel.

http://www.rantsports.com/pro-wrestling/2013/02/28/does-the-rock-really-need-the-wwe-title-in-2013/

Does The Rock need a title in 2013? Simple question, and one that really needs to be asked.

My Writing For the Last Few Days

http://www.rantsports.com/mma/2013/02/25/is-lyoto-machida-deserving-of-a-ufc-light-heavyweight-title-shot/

Despite his win at UFC 157 over Dan Henderson, does Lyoto Machida really deserve a UFC light heavyweight title shot? I dive into that question here along with a quick look at the state of UFC's light heavyweight division.

http://www.rantsports.com/ncaa-football/2013/02/26/the-big-10-in-purgatory-falling-in/

The beginning of a series of articles I'll be writing on the Big Ten plunging into football purgatory. This one basically sets the stage for what is to come.

http://www.rantsports.com/mma/2013/02/26/ronda-rousey-vs-liz-carmouche-a-historically-important-bout-for-mixed-martial-arts/

The Ronda Rousey/Liz Carmouche bout from UFC 157 was not only historically important for female MMA, but for the sport as a whole.

My Writing for 2/19/2013

http://www.rantsports.com/ncaa-football/2013/02/19/kevin-sumlin-entering-second-season-coaching-texas-am-aggies-with-plenty-on-his-plate/

Kevin Sumlin entering second year as Texas A&M football coach. In Texas, no matter where in the state, it's all about football and all about winning. The only problem for Sumlin  is that his team did so good last year, that it's almost a must that the Aggies have to win the national title to top last season.

My Writing for 2/18/2013

http://www.rantsports.com/ncaa-football/2013/02/18/jadeveon-clowney-needs-to-be-on-the-field-in-2013/


This is my case for why Jadeveon Clowney needs to play in 2013. Some want him to sit out so he won't get hurt and since he can't go pro until after this season. I think that's a mostly stupid idea and I explain myself in the article.

http://www.rantsports.com/ncaa-football/2013/02/18/texas-am-aggies-schedule-for-2013-season-the-best-gift-a-team-could-ask-for/
 
The Texas A&M Aggies got a tremendously good schedule for 2013. And I don't mean good as in a tough schedule, I mean good as in a great season potentially gift-wrapped for this team.

My Writing for 2/17/2013

http://www.worldboxing101.com/2013/02/17/adrien-broners-star-continues-to-rise-after-fifth-round-tko-of-gavin-rees/

My recap of last night's HBO boxing doubleheader. It was headlined by Adrien Broner showing off once again and maybe making some of his doubters into believers. I've been a believer for a while, but I will say that Gavin Rees put up a good effort last night.

Great YouTube Find: Stone Cold & C.M. Punk

The only good use of the "what" chant ever. And a dream match that I'll probably never get to see. Sigh.

My Writing for 2/9/2013 inito 2/10/2013

http://www.rantsports.com/ncaa-football/2013/02/10/three-peats-in-college-football-history/

There have only been two three-peats in college football history. Alabama will try to make that three this season after back-to-back national titles.

http://www.rantsports.com/ncaa-football/2013/02/10/teams-that-came-up-short-of-a-college-football-three-peat/

There have been nine teams that have come close to a three-peat, but failed to get it. All teams mentioned in this article won at least a share of two straight national titles and this is more or less the stories of how those respective third seasons turned out.
