Playing with pain can adversely effect your health, game

Everyone at one point in time has had a day in which they suffer pain, whether it be “tweaking” your back golfing, recovering from a recent knee replacement or stubbing your toe on the coffee table. Pain is natural and normal. It is your body’s way of alerting you to either actual or potential risk of tissue damage. Pain can be intermittent or constant, mild or debilitating, slightly... 

The biggest upset in my 25 year broadcasting career

It’s taken 2 days to process, and it’s really just settling in, but Friday night I had the honor to broadcast one the biggest upsets in my 25 years of broadcasting. And, I’m not sure I even fully appreciate it yet. Here’s what happened. Most know that I do the play-by-play for North Myrtle Beach High School football on the radio and internet. The Chiefs are coming off their... 

UNC academic scandal shameful to all former Tar Heel athletes

I’m not a UNC fan. But I am a fan of intercollegiate athletics because I was a four-year, Division 1 student-athlete. I also competed directly against former Tar Heel athletes who were on campus during the time that these sham, fake classes reportedly began (1993). So I’m offended as well as outraged when I saw the release of Kenneth Wainstein’s report yesterday. According to the Associated Press,... 

My Conversation with Decorated War Hero turned football player: Daniel Rodriguez

Aaron Marks Host, The Drive 6-9 a.m. M-F Sports Radio 100.3 The Team In my line of work as a talk show host, I get asked a lot of questions about my work. How did I get into this job? What did I study in school? How early do I wake up every day? My favorite question though is what do I like most about my job? What’s my favorite part and anyone who knows me or listens to my show knows that it’s...

Rooting for MB’s Golson, not ND’s Irish, is tricky business

And I thought it was tough being a Chicago Cubs fan. At least with the Cubbies, you know what you’re going to get. But try being an Everett Golson fan, as many who watched him play at Myrtle Beach High have become. Not a Notre Dame fan, which is blasphemy in SEC country. But as someone who genuinely wants to see someone from their hometown go on to succeed. And has he ever, albeit it in the most... 

Bobby Petrino’s Clemson/Death Valley comments are overblown

I’m no Bobby Petrino fan. In fact I really can’t stand the guy (primarily as a person). If you need to ask why, well you’ve probably lived under a rock the last five years or don’t follow college football. The guy’s personal transgressions aside, he can coach football and is one of the very best offensive-minded coaches in the country. But Bobby Petrino’s comments... 

Respect Amateurism/Title IX, but Allow Student-Athletes to Profit from their Likeness

Aaron Marks Host, The Drive 6-9 a.m. M-F Sports Radio 100.3 The Team It’s no secret at this point. College athletics is big business and the question continues to bring water coolers to boiling points around the country: Should NCAA Athletes be paid? My answer: No, but Yes. It’s really simple, actually. I respect amateurism and I think it can be preserved in the college game. We can’t just outright... 

Early losses for USC, Clemson could be a big win for Coastal

For avid South Carolina and Clemson fans, the college football season didn’t even last past Week 1 before both of their hopes for a national title all but went up in flames. South Carolina’s 52-28 demolition at the hands of Texas A&M, followed by Clemson’s 45-21 manhandling by Georgia, sank both Palmetto State powers in the polls and basically set a mandate that they run the table...
