I outshot Steph Curry at All-Star Weekend

I’ve always prided myself in my ability to play Pop-A-Shot. The fast-flowing motion of transferring a ball from one hand to the other. A simple flick of the wrist to propel the ball towards the rim and in. It’s such a silly and simple game at its core.


The Week 15 AP Poll for college football featured eight SEC teams in the Top 25, three of which were in the top 10 (No. 1 Alabama, No. 6 Georgia, No. 10 Florida).

SEC bias? Nope, just dominance

The Southeastern Conference is the best conference in college football, and it’s not particularly close. Those who disagree with that sentiment, apart from not knowing college football, would likely label it “SEC bias.” This is a term often used by fans of teams from other conferences that feel spurned by ESPN, the College Football Playoff Committee, AP Voters or anyone else that they can point a finger at in defiance instead of realizing that the SEC is simply better than the Big Ten, Big 12, ACC, Pac-12 (I shouldn’t even have to say that at this point) and yes, the American as well.

When it’s right for you, you’ll know

Wow. It almost feels weird writing this column. I’ve dedicated at least one day (and usually more) to this newspaper every single week this past calendar year. Even summer. The brutal, tough, grueling, hot summer it is in Gainesville saw me at my highest production at the Alligator.
