My Brain on NASCAR: Logano living up to ‘Sliced Bread’ moniker

In case you haven’t noticed, it’s time to start taking Joey Logano seriously. After claiming the lead with nine laps remaining in the 2015 Daytona 500 on Feb. 22, Logano managed to survive an end-of-race caution and then held on to win NASCAR’s most famous and prestigious event. When asked what went through his mind when he saw that late caution flag come out, Logano said, “Once you get over... 

NCAA “bubble” talk now a reality for Clemson basketball

Don’t look now but Clemson has quietly played its way onto the proverbial March Madness “bubble” and into the conversation for a possible postseason bid. After outlasting Florida State in Tallahassee last night 62-56, the Tigers have now won four-straight games (tied for longest in the ACC this season) and six of their last eight. Clemson is now 14-8 overall and 6-4 in the ACC (6th place, since... 

It’s time to give college athletes a small slice of the pie

Everyone from university presidents to network executives, and from ticket scalpers to bookies, seem to be getting rich on college athletics – except the athletes themselves. The ones who put their health and hard work on the line to fuel the money-making machine are the same kids who have to bum rides from friends and eat Ramon Noodles after the cafeteria closes – far from the glamorous... 

I broke the story? Really? Here’s how the Felton story went down

My day started out fairly normal. As I was preparing for the first TV broadcast of the day at the Beach Ball Classic, I began researching the two teams scheduled to play, Mullins and Northland. Mullins featured Jalek Felton, the nephew of Raymond Felton. Jalek is a top 10 nationally ranked sophomore and is an offensive beast on the court. Normally, I’ll speak to each head coach about their team as... 

Physical therapy for hip bursitis

Do you suffer with hip pain? Do you have pain that is located on the outside of the hip and thigh, or in the buttock? Does the pain get worse with activities such as walking and stair negotiation? Do you have pain with lying on the affected side? If yes to these questions, then you may have trochanteric bursitis of the hip. Trochanteric bursitis is when there is inflammation of the bursa of the hip.... 

Why Nebraska fans care about exciting Liberty-CCU finish

Lost amid the excitement of Saturday’s 15-14 barn-burner between Coastal Carolina and Liberty in the de facto Big South Conference championship game was another possible script that could have implications well beyond Conway, SC – like Lincoln, Nebraska. Not only were Liberty’s Turner Gill and Coastal’s Joe Moglia battling for the outright Big South title, they may have been... 

That wasn’t the video I expected; I call Icing by the Flames

There I was, lined up on the Coastal Carolina University sideline. The Chanticleers had the ball, down by 1 point with 3.6 seconds left in the game. The ball sat on Liberty’s 5 yard line. From the sideline, the Chants were moving the ball from my left, to my right. I was standing on the 3 yard line. A field goal would add three points to the CCU side of the scoreboard and make it a 17-15 win. The... 

Should Nick Schuessler finish out the year at QB for Clemson?

I know it’s crazy to ask but is it Nick Schuessler time at quarterback the rest of the way for Clemson? After Georgia Tech’s 28-6 trouncing of the Tigers in which Deshaun Watson was lost for the season, the topic came up on our postgame show “The Xtra Point” yesterday afternoon. Former Clemson standout Tajh Boyd looked at me and smiled when I brought up the real possibility... 

Now that Coastal is No. 1, the hard part is staying there

We’re No. 1! Go ahead and say it, Coastal Carolina fans. It rolls off the tongue nicely, especially when you’re saying it – and meaning it – for the very first time. The Chanticleer football team went where no CCU athletic program has been before on Monday when it received the No. 1 FCS ranking from one of two national polls. As the only 10-0 team in the nation, Coastal just...
