By Shane Bidwell

Heading into the last group stage match against a young and talented England team, the Belgians are playing with a class and sense of urgency nearly unmatched thus far in the World Cup. Read Full Article Here!


Top Four Big Ten Teams

By Shane Bidwell

With spring ball coming to a close and the summer dead period rapidly approaching let’s take a closer look at the top two teams from each division in the Big Ten.

East Division

Ohio State Buckeyes

Despite losing the most decorated quarterback in conference history in JT Barrett the Buckeyes are once again poised for a playoff run. Although little has been seen of him the small glimmer we have gotten of Dwayne Haskins has been positive. Look for him to thrive behind an experienced offensive line, and three very talented backs to take the heat off of the passing game. Ohio State may have the best running back duo in the country in Mike Webber and JK Dobbins. Dobbins is coming off a monster year which saw him rush for 1400 yards. Defensively the Buckeyes lose star corner Denzel Ward, but this defense should be stout as ever. A deep D-Line anchored by Nick Bosa should be downright terrifying. If the Buckeyes can navigate a stretch that has them playing TCU in Arlington and going on the road at Penn State two weeks later, then they should be right there in the College Football Playoff race Read Full Article Here!

My Final Four Predictions

By Shane Bidwell

With two conventional blue blood, and rather long shots, my Final Four predictions border on downright insane. Before the action begins Wednesday with the First Four, let’s look at the four teams I believe will make it to San Antonio.

Villanova Wildcats

No surprise here. Jay Wright has built a national powerhouse at Nova and look for it to be more of the same this year. The Wildcats have an absurd 6 players scoring in double figures, led by junior guard Jalen Brunson with 19 ppg. The Wildcats are the team to beat coming out of the East. I expect Alabama to give Nova a scare in the second round but for the most part the Cats should tear right through this side of the bracket, as Purdue is their only feasible competition; and even they have been less than impressive at times.
