Great Expectations Follow Great Rookie Seasons by Dalton, Green

0 Comments · Tuesday, May 15, 2012
Andy Dalton jokes that he can now hold his head up and boss around the mere rookies that invaded the Bengals’ locker room this past week for a rookie minicamp. He, of course, is joking. It’s not his style to boss anyone around — more likely he’s showing his new teammates the ropes.   

Seau’s Death Demonstrates Conflicted Reality of Football

Last week, former San Diego Charger and New England Patriot Junior Seau, a future Hall of Famer, committed suicide. Like former Chicago Bears safety Dave Duerson, the 42-year-old Seau shot himself in the chest. Last February, before shooting himself, Duerson sent a text to several family members.  

First Round Pick Dre Kirkpatrick Talks Draft, Bengals’ Future

0 Comments · Tuesday, May 1, 2012
The Bengals did exactly what they were expected to do in the first round of the NFL draft on April 26 — take a cornerback and an offensive guard, even if the names were different than expected. Last Thursday, cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick of Alabama and Wisconsin guard Kevin Zeitler became the newest Bengals.  

Reds’ Slow Start No Reason for Panic

0 Comments · Tuesday, April 24, 2012
One of the great beauties of baseball is that one pitch can mean everything and one game can mean nothing. The Reds are off to a slow start, winning seven of their first 16 games. It’s not ideal and wins in April count as much as wins in September, but it’s baseball — every team loses roughly one-third of its games.   

Bengals Have Options With Two First-Round Picks

0 Comments · Tuesday, April 17, 2012
It seems every mock draft out there — and there are a ton — knows exactly what the Bengals will do with their two first-round picks on April 26: The team will take a guard and a cornerback. They seem to be the two glaring needs, even though the team addressed their depth at the positions in free agency.  

Considering the Reds’ $250 Million Move

1 Comment · Tuesday, April 10, 2012
Nielsen says we’re the smallest market in Major League Baseball, but last week Bob Castellini sent the message that the Cincinnati Reds are no longer a small-market team, signing Joey Votto to a 10-year, $225 million extension that brings his contract to more than $250 million over the next 12 seasons.   

Time to Get Over Opening Day Snub

I know I will lose any claim to being an actual Cincinnatian with this statement, but I’m not really bothered that Major League Baseball’s first pitch of the season wasn’t thrown in our city. In case you missed it — and it’s very possible you did — the 2012 MLB season began on March 28 in Japan.  

12 Reasons For Reds Optimism In ’12

0 Comments · Wednesday, March 28, 2012
Much of the offseason optimism for the Reds was dashed this weekend when it was announced that closer Ryan Madson would require Tommy John surgery on his right arm and miss the season. But it’s spring, the sun is out, every team (in the National League at least) is undefeated and now is not the time for doom. No, now is the time for optimism.

For the first time in the history of the NCAA Tournament, four teams in the Sweet 16 — a qualified quarter — are from the state of Ohio, with Cincinnati, Xavier, Ohio and Ohio State moving on to make up 25 percent of the remaining teams fighting for a chance at basketball supremacy.  

Mind Over Body

Migraines and serious injuries behind him, junior guard Cashmere Wright is poised to lead UC’s tournament run

0 Comments · Wednesday, March 14, 2012
Pain came from inside Cashmere Wright’s head, looking to get out, pulsing, like his brain was expanding beyond what his skull could contain. His eyes — perhaps the most important part of his multifaceted game on the court — betrayed him; he could barely see. A single ray of light crippled him, yet he was readying for the brightest spotlight of his career.

Tu Holloway and Kenny Frease know all too well what it means to be senior basketball players at Xavier University. For three seasons they saw older players — the likes of Jason Love, B.J. Raymond and Jamel McLean — lead the program to deep runs in the NCAA tournament. It would be Holloway and Frease’s turn this season.

The NCAA Tournament comes around every year, which is great for those of us who believe it to be the greatest postseason event in sports — the first two days of which are particularly dramatic and exciting.

With the Reds away in Arizona and another story already planned on UC this week, I was left pondering what to do to fill this space — and then I got one of the greatest gifts ever handed to sportswriting — Charlie Coles.   

Additional Wild Cards Are Good For Baseball

0 Comments · Tuesday, March 6, 2012
The Reds’ playoff odds got a bump last week. Without adding a player or any injury to a rival occurring, the playoffs got that much closer for Cincinnati. That said, they did for every other team as well. Bud Selig got his playoff expansion, adding another wild card to the playoffs in each league. Now 10 teams will be in the postseason.
