Penn State, who’s to blame

Penn State, who’s to blame

  WE ARE ALL TO BLAME Penn State is proof that our priorities are out of whack By James Merilatt | @jamesmerilatt When it comes to the horrific situation at Penn State, we all know who to blame. Obviously, Jerry Sandusky himself is the most at fault; he's the psychopath who committed multiple heinous acts against innocent children for decades. And as we found out last week, the higher ups at Penn State are also culpable; university president Graham Spanier, senior VP ... Full Story

No Need for Manning

No Need for Manning

How can something that looks so right be so wrong? Well, the Broncos would be making a tragic mistake if they were able to somehow win the Peyton Manning sweepstakes. “Oh, D-Mac, you are just a blind Tebow lover! You are an idiot! You suck! I hate you!” See, I can read your mind. But now that you got that out of your system, can I talk some sense into you? Peyton Manning is not Peyton Manning anymore. The most obvious evidence of that is that the Colts just cut him. Nothing is ... Full Story

Time to Trade Tebow

Time to Trade Tebow

John Elway was hired to put his stamp on the Broncos. He was brought in as team’s executive vice president of football operations to make the tough decisions that are necessary to build a winner. No. 7 has an office at Dove Valley because he’s seen as someone bold enough to do what is right, not just what is popular. If those things are true, then Elway needs to do one thing before the NFL Draft: Trade Tim Tebow. The Hall of Fame quarterback doesn’t see No. 15 as the Broncos ... Full Story

Defending the Broncos

Defending the Broncos

Until last year, the “Broncos Way” was whatever the current head coach wanted it to be. And until the 2000s, that way was a winning way. But like most things, the game of football became more complex and so did the top league in which it was played. It started to become obvious that one man could not do it all and that only a collective group effort was going to be able to create a contender in the competitive and hostile environment of the NFL. Regardless of the titles that ... Full Story

The Trap of the NFL Combine

The Trap of the NFL Combine

  The NFL Combine, or better known to the media as the “Underwear Olympics,” has become must-see television. One of my radio partners, Peter Burns, loves this stuff. He spent hours in front of his TV watching guys run the 40, bench press and weave through the cone drill. Peter is single with no kids, clearly has more time than me and was hoping to gain some valuable information. But given the choice, I’d rather take my kids to see Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked ... Full Story

Derek Good stays on his feet

Late father continues to inspire CSU kick returner     Good follows dad's advice, stays on feet By Nick Frank Athletic Media Relations If you're not on your feet to catch it, it will go right past you. Growing up, that's what Derek Good's dad, Matthew, told him repeatedly. Initially, Derek thought that advice meant that he needed to be on his feet to catch a pass, or else of course, it would go right past him. Like a lot of children that look up to their ...

Roughriders Run Roughshod Over Spartans

Roughriders Run Roughshod Over Spartans

Berthoud Football Drops Third Consecutive Game By Dan Karpiel Sports Writer   If football games were played just two quarters at a time, the Berthoud Spartans would have walked away from Friday night’s contest against Roosevelt with a one win, one loss record. Berthoud dominated the second half of the game with almost as much vigor as they themselves were dominated in the first half. Yet when all 48 minutes of football had been played, the Spartans found themselves on the ... Full Story
