After the end of the football season, many things have come up in the spotlight ,one of those being the officiating needs to be called more consistently.     I think that...

Tim Tebow is the epitome of a polarizing figure. He has garnered countless hours of coverage from every sports news outlet due to his devout faith and all around “good guy” persona. His college football career at the University of Florida was superb, although many doubted his transition to the Na...

After the seven month wait, football is finally back in full swing. The National Football League kicked off its highly anticipated season last Thursday. I love this time of year because fans of every team believe that “this is their year” and the excitement is tangible. Even amidst all the enthusiasm and energy surrounding the NF...

Welcome back to the third year of the Sideline Report, a space where I can make outrageous claims and defend my wildly unpopular opinions. Sports are a passion of mine and if you’re reading this I’d assume you feel the same. So here we go yet again as I give my take on the ever changing arena of s...

Finally, after 18 years, Peyton Manning is done playing football. He officially announced his retirement on Monday, ending the era of “The Sheriff” and forcing us to reminisce and remember a surefire first-ballot hall of fame career.   From his humble beginnings as one of the sons of former NFL quarterback Archie Manning to his stellar career at the University of Tennessee t...

It’s either the best time of year or the worst time of year for football fans. The Super Bowl is the culmination of the NFL season where (hopefully) the two best teams meet to decide the champion of the entire league. But, it also means that football is finally over, which leaves sports fans eagerl...

The Super Bowl turns 50 on Sunday and the game has become something of a national holiday. Every year, the broadcast has memorable halftime performances, hilarious commercials, big-time movie trailers and, of course, the game itself. This year will be no different as Super Bowl Sunday quickly approa...

In the late afternoon on Saturday, I was deeply saddened. The team that had just won 11 straight games, broke a 22 year playoff curse and proved everyone wrong by making the playoffs after a 1-5 start. Now, they're eliminated from the postseason. The AFC divisional playoff game against Tom Brady and...

I used to almost be ashamed to say I’m a fan of the Royals and Chiefs. Kansas City has been known  for mediocrity since, well, before I knew what a football was. There have been a few winning seasons in the past few decades, but nothing worthwhile to help my hometown teams come back from epic coll...

It’s sometimes odd how football works. One day you’re the best quarterback in the NFL and the next you throw 4 interceptions and finish a game with a passer rating of 0.0. Who would have thought that Peyton Manning would throw 17 picks through 10 regular season games? This isn’t the Peyton Manning of ol...

As the Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch ran into the end zone for a touchdown, senior Ben Gillig cheered. Gillig usually wasn’t a fan of the Seahawks, but being a part of a fantasy football league changed his rooting interest momentarily. Seniors Ben Gillig, Spencer Boaz, Connor Julian, Hunter Canning...
