Bulls Doing Just Fine Without Melo

Mike Dunleavy meets with the media

Since Tom Thibodeau has taken over as head coach of the Chicago Bulls, they have never been a team to look back and wonder, “What if?” — not that anybody would blame them if they did. Two major knee injuries to Derrick Rose have robbed Chicago from a legitimate chance to compete for a title, […]

Central Michigan runs away from NU, 80-67

Coach Collins unable to explain the Cats poor performance against Central Michigan

My family has a tradition (thanks to my cousin Amber) that we open “some” presents on Christmas Eve so it didn’t take 4 hours the next day. To be honest, I think my cousin couldn’t control herself and pouted/cried her way into open up presents early. I am not complaining since I reap the benefits […]

NU routs MVS, 101-49

NU Win 101-49

There is an innate sense for a son to perform to the best of his ability when his father is watching from the stands. Whether it is playing basketball or the piano, the emotional boost of having a loved one cheering you on cannot be replicated. Hopefully the Wildcats head coach Chris Collins didn’t use […]

Saints-Bears Preview

Brees and Payton

Chicago fans were buzzing this week but it had nothing to do with Marc Trestman’s future or the Chicago Bears. The signing of Jon Lester (Cubs) and the trade for Jeff Samardzija (Sox) helped a football-inept city cope with their team’s terrible season for a few days. Personally, it was nice to not have to […]

Bulls Look to Get Back on Track

Joakim Noah talks to the media after Tuesdays practice.

The Chicago Bulls have definitely improved offensively so far this season. With the addition of Pau Gasol, and departure of the smaller/less effective Carlos Boozer, the team has upped their points per game average from 93.7 to 102.6. Strangely enough, it has been the defense that has struggled at times. The Bulls (12-8) are allowing […]

Blackhawks Going for 5th Straight Win Friday Night at the UC

Chicago Blackhawks prepare for Montreal on Friday morning

It has been an interesting week to say the least for the Chicago Blackhawks.

Mavs edge Bulls in 2OT, 132 – 129

Pau Gasol talks to the media after the loss

The highest scoring team in the NBA, the Dallas Mavericks, were the spoilers for the Bulls homecoming after a 4 – 3 circus trip. The Mavs (13-5) and Bulls (11-6) were evenly matched as they played like playoff bound teams from their respective conferences. The first quarter flew by with each team shooting 20+ shots […]

Bears-Lions Thanksgiving Preview

Lions DT Ndamukong Suh

The Bears go into the Thanksgiving holiday with a lot to be thankful for, especially when it comes to their fans. Many of the grumblings the Bears have had to deal with over the past month have dissipated after the back to back wins over the last place Vikings and Bucs. It is surprising to […]
