NBA Game 5 Prediction

Miami’s Keys: dwyane-wade-of-the-miami-heat[1]

The key for the Heat is the production of the Big Three….LeBron, Wade, and Bosh.  In game four they played outstanding, but the rest of the team had a bad game. If the big three don’t bring their “A” game and the role players do not preform the Heat could be in some big trouble. Wade looks like the Dwayne Wade we all know and love. I am looking for him to play big.

628x471San Antonio’s Keys: 

The Spurs need to avoid injury. Tony Parker has a torn hamstring and it is vital that they do not loose him. I believe Kawhi Leonard needs to step up and take the scoring load off Parker.  Leonard is the best defensive player on their team and he is the future of the Spurs. In the games they have won he has shut down LeBron. I think Leonard will play great and the San Antonio Spurs will win their last home game of the year and go up 3-2 in the NBA finals.

Preseason College Football Predictions 6-11

6.  Louisville Cardinals: teddy-bridgewater-p1

The Louisville Cardinals are coming of last year’s Sugar Bowl champion year, with a lot of confidence. They are returning a Heisman Trophy favorite quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and they have Charlie Strong a terrific coach. There is a lot of buzz going around this program and they have a very easy schedule. I believe that the Cards are going to have a undefeated season, now let’s just see if they live up to the hype.

stanford_hogan_11720127.  Stanford Cardinals: 

The Cardinals are always a contender, and with quarterback Kevin Hogan coming back they will be hard to stop. Winning the Rose Bowl was a big accomplishment for them last year, but this year they have even bigger expectations. This team is well coached and is balanced on both sides of the ball, the only problem is they have to compete with the high flying flashing Oregon Ducks. Stanford has a suffocating defense, but it is not enough to slow down the Ducks.

8.  Michigan Wolverines:  rn_i_devingardner_ms_600

 The Wolverines are coming of a decent season, but this is Michigan and the expectations are huge. Now with Devin Gardner at QB they can finally run their offense. The Wolverines big three are quite good. They have the exact replica of Cam Newton in Devin Gardner, Fitzgerald Toussaint, and a deep threat receiver Jeremy Gallon. This team is solid, and they are my pick to win the B1G Ten. GO BLUE!

9.  Clemson Tigers: tajhboydauburnvclemsong6k95yefiedl

The Tigers are a fast dangerous offense. It is big that Tajh Boyd and Sammy Watkins are returning. This is a good team with a lot of talent coming back. Look for Clemson to have a big year.

Miami_Georgia_Tech_Football__pmpfeifer@naplesnews.com_3_t60710.  Miami Hurricanes: 

Miami is now relieved of their punishments and it’s their time to shine. They have a cool and collect quarterback in Stephen Morris and they have a lethal running back in Duke Johnson. They went 7-5 last year, but they are looking to improve that. With the gunslinging mentality of Morris, and the explosiveness of Johnson, they are destined to have a great season.  It looks like this year its all about the U.

11.  Northwestern Wildcats: Venric Mark

The Wildcats finally ended their Bowl Game win drought last year. Pat Fitzgerald has truly turned this mess of a program around. Having duel threat quarterback Kain Colter and explosive returner/running back Venric Mark coming back for this year is great. This program is on the rise and they are the biggest thing to come in Evanston.

My Preseason College Football Rankings 1-5

The days are counting down till college football arrives, although it is only summer I am already ecstatic. For the next couple days I will be counting down all of the top 25 preseason rankings starting at 1 and ending at 25.

1.  Alabama Crimson Tide: 

The Tide are the  definition of a power house, winning the National Championship three120902.14out of the last four years. Returning is star senior quarterback A.J McCarron, powerful running back T.J Yeldon, and on the defensive side of the field the heart and soul of their nasty, defense linebacker C.J Mosley. Having the best team and coach in college football, the Bama fans have been spoiled. This squad have been the leaders of the SEC’s reign of terror and they have a great chance of adding on to their legacy.

2. Oregon Ducks: 

The Ducks have recently lost their head coach Chip Kelly to the NFL, but that’s not 8347893418_f1c8fb99c8_ogoing to slow them down one bit. The last five years Oregon has really solidified themselves as a championship contender year after year. Their returning Heisman trophy favorite QB Marcus Mariota, deadly kick returner/running back De’Anthony Thomas also known as the Black Mamba, and hard hitting defensive back Ifo Ekpre-Olomu. The Ducks are the fastest and best dressed team in college football, but they are also a force to recon with.

3. Ohio State Buckeyes: 

The Buckeyes went a perfect 12-0 last season, but because of NCAA allegations theyNCAA Football: Michigan at Ohio State couldn’t go to a bowl game or the National Championship. This year they have standout quarterback Braxton Miller returning. He is one of the Heisman trophy favorites and he has become more of a leader on this team. Adding Coach Urban Meyer last year was a great decision. The Buckeyes are looking to have a great season if they keep Miller healthy. He took way too many hits last year, which lead to a number of injuries. If Braxton Miller gets hurt you can just throw their season down the drain.

4.  Texas A&M Aggies: 5095f8fdd4a1a.preview-300

 The Aggies had a total bounce back season after the terrible one they had before. The main reason for this turnaround is last year’s Heisman trophy winner Johnny Manziel. They have a stingy defense and we know on offense Manziel can just explode for a touchdown. They can run with Alabama and Georgia and now are a new power house that has been added to the SEC. If Texas A&M can keep Johnny Football out of trouble they will have a phenomenal year.

5.  Georgia Bulldogs: Buffalo+v+Georgia+1j4zX3oWr5tl

The Dawgs were one play away from the National Championship last year, but they just couldn’t finish. Key players returning this year are star quarterback Aaron Murray and running back Todd Gurley. They have a stellar defense and two of the best running backs in the game, Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall. They are a monster in the SEC and it looks like they will be next year too.

Check back tomorrow for teams 6-11!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Eastern Conference Finals – Game Seven

Miami’s keys:d-wade-sad

This whole series has been a disaster for the Miami Heat. The only one who is being productive is LeBron James. They way they are playing right now looks like LeBron’s old Cleveland team. The key for the Heat is for LeBron to get some help. In game six Wade and Bosh had a combined total of 15 points. If that happens on Monday the only thing that keeps them from losing is if LeBron scores 100 points. The Big 3 has transformed into the Big 1 right before our eyes. It looks like Miami is in a lot of trouble.

imagesIndiana’s keys: 

The Indiana Pacers have now proven that they are a force to recon with. Paul George is now a super star, and they have the best big man in the NBA, Roy Hibbert. They have really scared this Miami team. The Pacers need their backcourt to play well. George Hill has been good but you never know what your going to get with Lance Stephenson. He can play outstanding or he could be terrible. He has to have a good game if the Pacers want to upset the Heat in Miami.

Prediction: 

I think that LeBron will play outstanding, but he will get no help. Paul George will have a big game and carry his Pacers to the NBA Finals. I pick the Pacers will upset the Heat.
