  4. Scenes From Duke Football's Joyride

    Shane Ryan

    I watched the Duke-UNC game at Kenan Stadium in Chapel Hill with two friends, one of whom was French and still a little rusty on the rules of football. It took a while, for instance, to explain why a team would ever choose to decline a penalty. That ...

  8. The MLB Weekend Top 10: Might Is (Wain)Wright

    Shane Ryan

    I love baseball, so it wouldn't be true to say I've been faking the funk so far in the 2013 season. But there comes a point every year when the game pierces the thick mental hide of my winter hibernation, and my fandom rises to near-obsessive levels....

  9. Of Winners and Whiners: Tiger Dismantles Sergio

    Shane Ryan

    It's rare in golf to see a gallery cheer for a bad shot, but it happens. The patrons of the game love to brag about the sport's unique decorum, but there are times when rooting interest takes over and fans can't help themselves. So it wasn't a huge s...

  10. The NCAA Basketball Rules Committee Just Failed the Sport

    Shane Ryan

    This was an exceptional year for college basketball, in the sense that you had to be an exceptional obsessive just to enjoy an average game. The wonderful championship battle between Louisville and Michigan was a happy fluke, a last-ditch saving grac...

    Shane Ryan

    For our final Man of the Hour, as the early games wind to a close, we turn to a mid-major hero whom I dismissed without cause in my Midwest Region picks, but who is currently putting me to shame with a great performance against Cincinnati. He is: ...

  14. March Madness Men of the Day

    Shane Ryan

    It's time for the last Man of the Hour, and there's no doubt who deserves the honor. He's the man who represents the last hope of a real upset (no, Wichita State over Pittsburgh doesn't count) in the early games. He is: Jake Cohen At halftime a...

  15. Ohio State's Unlikely Revenge at Indiana

    Shane Ryan

    The game that changed my mind about no. 2 Indiana and made me realize that maybe the Hoosiers weren't overrated, came on February 10, when I saw them play in Columbus, Ohio. That road win was so dominant, and so clear-cut, that the critiques previous...
