Deion Sanders is an HBCU Game-Changer

What a way HBCU week was brought in a few months ago with Deion Sanders’s hiring; a move that can change the landscape of college football. Jackson State University hired hall of fame cornerback “Prime Time” Deion Sanders, as its next head coach. We’ll delve into the significance of this hire in a bit but it’s safe to say this is some of the most exciting sports news of 2020.

By the way for those who may not know HBCU stands for Historically Black College or University. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Tigers’ season didn’t start until Sunday, February 21st to be exact. As you can imagine, Coach Prime had his team tuned and ready for the extended season. Keep reading, you’ll see the results later.

Deion Sanders Could be a Game-Changer for Historically Black Colleges and Universities

A Significant Hire

HBCUs have never been short of talent. Some of the greatest players of all time are products of these schools, here are just a few names you may recognize. Shannon Sharpe (Savannah State), Richard Dent (Tennessee State), the late Steve McNair (Alcorn State), and the late Walter Payton (Jackson State). What they have been short on is exposure.

You probably don’t know many if any of the schools other than Grambling State University of the ’80s and ’90s coached by the late great Eddie Robinson. College football has always been dominated by the power five conferences; the ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, PAC 12, and SEC. Most notably some of the household names Ohio State, Alabama, LSU, Oklahoma, and Clemson.

Sanders should be able to start a new lineage of great players coming from HBCU programs. As the Hall of Famer leads the Tigers into this unprecedented season with all the focus on the FCS and probably his team, the pendulum of power in college football may start to swing. The success of Jackson State’s season will determine how far of a swing it could be. Will we see more high-profile hires like this? We’ll just have to wait and see how it plays out.

Ready for CFB Season 2

Last month, on a Monday night, was the culmination of act one of the 2020-2021 FBS season. Ending with the CFP National Championship with Alabama defeating Ohio State 52-24. In the words of Digital Underground, it was the “same song,” with the same teams in these playoffs. Now it’s time for act two of a bonus football spring season for the FCS. Who’s excited? I know I am!

The season kicked off its conference regular-season schedule on Friday, February 19th. Season play will go on through April 17th followed by a four-week, 16-team playoff ending with the FCS National Championship on May 15th. Now that we got the dates out the way, you should know our featured team, Jackson State Tigers defeated Edward Waters 53-0.

Can Deion Sanders Recruit Top-Ranked Players to HBCUs?

This spring football season can also be a game-changer for high school recruits. I believe Jackson State will be a hotbed for elite talent which could translate to more elite talent landing in the HBCU atmosphere. Some guys may not want the big campus or pressure of D-I institutions. If a smaller school can give you the same opportunities of a great education and NFL exposure why not go there.

Now it’s not likely that five and four-star recruits will automatically start going in that direction but it feasible that three-stars may strongly consider that option. This would definitely bolster the talent pool of those schools. Sanders’s success will definitely determine how that goes, remember that pendulum mentioned earlier, let’s see how far it will swing.

 

The Potential Chicago Blackhawks Savior: Pius Suter

With injuries to Kirby Dach and Jonathan Toews, Pius Suter has been an unlikely surprise for the Chicago Blackhawks. Suter, unrelated to the hockey royalty Sutter family, grew and played his junior career in Switzerland. While never drafted, Suter certainly hasn’t gone under the radar.

He has played internationally for Switzerland since 2013 and has been invited to NHL camps since 2017. The young center spent most of his Swiss career at ZSC Lions, a top player contributing goals, assists, and championships to the Zürich club. 

Pius Suter The Potential Savior of the Chicago Blackhawks

ZSC Lions

In the 2019-2020 season, Suter won the MVP award and recorded 30 goals and 23 assists. This season wasn’t a fluke for Suter, he previously led the team in assists with 28 in the 2017-2018 season, and was a big reason for the Lions winning the National League championship that year. Savvy hawks fans might remember one of the Lions who previously played with Chicago: Marcus Krüger.

Another big similarity for both the Lions and the Blackhawks is the celebratory goal music. Chelsea Dagger played all over Suter’s extensive highlight reel. In July 2020 Suter implemented his exit clause to join the Blackhawks on a one-year club-friendly contract. 

International and NHL Experience

Suter has been making waves in more than just the Swiss league. The lefthanded forward has played with and against some terrific talent in his nine seasons as a skater. Wherever he goes, Suter seems to find the back of the net. Having played internationally for Switzerland since 2013 he has collected 20 points in 33 appearances.

The most notable performance was in the 2018 Olympics. Against host country South Korea, Suter scored a hat trick in an 8-0 rout of their opponents. His experience has drawn attention from multiple NHL teams including the Ottawa Senators and New York Islanders. The NHL invites and workouts motivated Suter to push his game to the next level. He finally earned himself a full-time opportunity for one of the original-six squads this season.

His Role for the Hawks

The Blackhawks had to search for alternative options filling out the roster after the open letter to fans declared the team was going to rebuild for the next couple of seasons. Suter was a low risk potentially high reward acquisition that was set to be featured on the backend rotation. After injuries and illness, two of the top centers were on the shelf his role was greatly expanded.

The constantly shifting first line for the Hawks featured Suter, Alex DeBrincat, and Patrick Kane against the Detroit Redwings last Sunday. It was a good night for the top line, two goals at even strength and one additional power-play goal, all scored by the Swiss native. It was the first hat trick by a Blackhawks rookie in the first six games of the season in over ninety years. 

Strengths

As a player, Suter is known for quick hands, wise decision making, and a nose for the net. When he has the puck, don’t blink. Most of his shots are likely to come off rebounds, redirects, and wristers. Very little of his shift time will be spent at the point, despite being under six foot most of his skating is done in the crease and slot.

When he does have the puck he is constantly looking up at his teammates or the net. Suter also excels at elevating the puck no matter what position his stick is in. While not the hardest hit shot, the puck jumps off the blade and catches most defenders and goalkeepers off guard.

Weaknesses

Where he will have to improve is in his strength and tenacity. In the young season, he won about 43% of faceoffs. A number that will need to boost if he wants to stay on in crucial situations. As the smallest center on the roster, he will have a target on his back as top teams will try to bully him off the puck.

It will be interesting to see if the Blackhawks trainers and dieticians will try adding muscle to Suter’s slim frame or if they fear it will cost him his scoring and skating ability. The Blackhawks can afford to be more patient when it comes to their young players as opposed to years past. Expect to see much more Pius Suter on your television in the coming months.

The Chicago Bears Season in Review and Ahead

It’s been a rough season for the Chicago Bears. Okay, that may be putting it mildly. On paper, the Bears started strong with a 5-1 record. The defense was leading the way for the Bears. Many had hoped either Mitchell Trubisky or Nick Foles would improve the offense to a serviceable level of competition. The victories were close, but that’s what good teams do, win the close games. That was what the optimistic sect of Bears fans told themselves.

Reviewing the Chicago Bears Season and Taking a Look Ahead

The Skid

Then the losing streak hit. Each week it felt like groundhog day, with little change to the frustrating cycle. The defense would do its best to hold their opponent within arm’s reach. The offense would go entire quarters, sometimes even games without much production. Injuries to the defense piled up and glaring issues were exposed.

Chuck Pagano built his defensive reputation in Indianapolis but his time in Halas Hall has seen immense regression. Chicago went from number one in the NFL in points allowed per game (17.7) to 14th (23.1). This is despite a big offseason acquisition in Robert Quinn who has just two sacks. At 5-7 and six straight losses, Matt Nagy was on the hot seat.

The Resurgence

One constant of the Nagy organization is, his team refuses to turn on each other. After Foles’ injury against the Vikings in Week 10,  Trubisky was thrust back into the starting lineup. The offense began ticking again. In their next three games, Trubisky led his team to an average of 36 points per game and won all three contests. This stretch paved the way to slip into the playoffs in the number seven seed and seems to have kept Nagy and company around for at least one more season.

Nagy’s run as head coach hasn’t always been the smoothest but this has been the most successful era since Lovie Smith. Nagy is without a losing season in his first three years as head coach, reaching the playoffs twice. This accomplishment shouldn’t be taken lightly, it’s been nearly a decade and a half since the monsters of the midway have seen the postseason that frequently. There is tangible frustration, and it’s warranted, but even when things seem hopeless some franchises find fortune.

The Strengths of This Team

The losses of Bobby Massie and James Daniels forced the offensive line to shuffle. Notre Dame alums Sam Mustipher and Alex Bars have stepped up huge. They are part of the reason why David Montgomery eclipsed the 1,000-yard rushing mark and finished fifth in overall rush yards. Nagy has capitalized on this and re-focused the offense to match its strengths.

Few fans will disagree that Trubisky’s legs are one of his stronger attributes. The play calling now includes more moving pockets and RPO’s and less deep dropbacks and slow-developing plays. When the defense gets pressure on the quarterback, Eddie Jackson and Kyle Fuller have the freedom to jump routes and make plays. All-Pro special teamer Cordarrelle Patterson will need to make his presence felt if the Bears have any chance at winning on Sunday against the Saints.

It’s a New Season for the Chicago Bears

As the postseason gets underway this weekend the Chicago Bears do have a chance to make a run, no matter how unlikely it may seem. Teams with more systemic problems have united in the past and forged unlikely roads to success in the playoffs. The 2011 New York Giants are an example of a team that surprised analysts and fans alike. They made adjustments at just the right time leading to iconic playoff memories. Tom Coughlin and Eli Manning led the G-Men who had an eerily similar season to this year’s NFC North contenders.

The Giants lost five of six games late in the season and fans were calling for Coughlin’s head. The team limped into the playoffs with a 9-7 and a negative point differential. The defense was pitiful in the regular season giving up over 25 points per game but in the playoffs, they averaged just 14 points against even though only one of the games was held at home. They ended their season with a Lombardi trophy upsetting the legendary duo of Bill Belichick and Tom Brady for the second time. As a fan, enjoy this Sunday, who knows when another game as meaningful as this will take place for the Chicago Bears.

Thank Yu: Jed Hoyer Pulls Trigger on Darvish Trade

When you woke up this morning Chicago Cubs fans, how were you feeling with news of the Yu Darvish trade to the San Diego Padres? I am genuinely curious because I am excited. I have been reading a lot of different opinions on this subject matter in the last 24 hours. From the knowledge I was able to gather, not many people liked it.

Well, I am here to tell you why it was the exact move the Cubs needed to make. I am not here to change your mind. I am only here to give you a positive outlook on your current situation… as a Cub fan.

Hoyer Trades Yu Darvish to Padres

Had to Happen

Darvish was second in the National League in CY Young voting. He also posted a 2.01 earned run average and going 8-3 in a pandemic ridden season where the Cubs were swept from the playoffs for the second time in three years. Also, might I add how disappointing the end of the 2019 season was as well? The one where we entered September with a 5.5 game lead and lost the division within two weeks. Yeah, those were some rough times.

Nothing frustrates me more when a team is not playing to their potential and that is exactly what the Cubs have been doing over the last couple of seasons. As much fun as winning in the regular season is. Nothing, and I mean NOTHING, will ever be as special as that October in 2016. Call me greedy, but I want that again. Oh so desperately. I listen to playoff highlights in my car because of the goosebumps it brings back to me.

I live for moments such as Miguel Montero breaking open Game 1 of the League Championship Series with a game-breaking/essentially ending grand slam. That absolutely rocked Wrigley Field to its core. Those are the moments I want back again and the way the roster is currently constructed is just not going to do it anymore.

Trading Darvish is Good

Yes, I know you do not know any of the four 18-20-year-olds with little to no experience. That is ok, you will. Things like this take time and while the Dodgers, Padres, and Braves battle it out for the National League crown, we will continue to acquire talent. Because this time around, the rebuild will be much quicker. The Cubs already have major league talent ready to trade.

Kris Bryant, Willson Contreras, Ian Happ, Kyle Hendricks, and other over-performing players. The Cubs will enter the season with some of their current roster intact. But if and when one of those guys gets off to a hot start, the Cubs will be evaluating and looking to shore up their farm system and reload for the future.

Enjoy This Season

You may still be in a state of confusion about what the Cubs are doing but it is truly time. the days of 2016 are gone and if I am to be hyper-critical right now the Cubs over the past three seasons have been major disappointments. We saw the cracks begin in 2017 when we somehow survived an NLDS against the Washington Nationals, and then got absolutely ran over by the Dodgers in the LCS.

The end of 2018 and 2019 was equally disappointing. It’s time to start getting some return for the remaining assets we have. This return could be beautiful due to the talent that remains on the roster. Hendricks can be a top-10 pitcher in the game. He’s shown his poise and control ever since coming to the big league level. Contreras is a top-five catcher in the game currently and there are a lot of teams that are looking to take their signal-caller to the next level.

You love the players from this team because odds are they brought you some of the happiest moments of your life as a sports fan. Sadly, we are Cubs fans and we just lived through the greatest era of Chicago Cubs baseball history. Just let that sink in. Now, depending on your perspective that could be seen as good or bad. I like to see it as a good thing, and I want to use the talent that we currently have to catapult this team to the future. The players on this team mean a lot not only to you but to me as well.

Memory Lane

I will never forget the instinct Javy Baez played with throughout those playoffs. I will never forget how all the pieces fell into place and the plan worked. It actually worked. Theo came in October of 2011, said he needs to gut the farm system and rebuild this team from the ground up. He came in, he did what he said he would do, and accomplished it.

So when the 2021 season rolls around, and you see these guys in a Cubs uniform, all I can say is enjoy it, remember how these players made you feel and the happiness they brought. The goal of trading these guys is to bring in more talent to accomplish the same goal as before.

Yu Will Thank Jed Later

Yes, I know you are sick of the “Yu” puns well. I can’t help it. If you were blindsided by this trade then I do not know how to help Yu (ok I am done). In a few seasons when the incredible Dodgers, Padres, and Braves maybe are taking a step back, the Cubs will have much better talent in the farm system to bring in to compete for another championship. You can call this run by the Cubs over this past decade a success or a failure. That is your decision. Zach Davies was the only major league-ready player coming back in the deal.

You can be mad at the lack of “talent” the Cubs got for Darvish, but remember. Darvish is a 35-year-old, injury-prone pitcher who before this season had only a few solid stretches for the Cubs. No one knows what you are going to get out of the super young talent. B if one of those guys develops and plays a nice role for us in the future then this trade is a success.

The Cubs need to shed salary and start getting ready for the future. Especially since there is no timetable set for when fans are going to be allowed back into the stadium. Let’s get the struggling over with so we can dominate later on. Today is a rough day for Cubs fans. It is the end of an era, and what a fun era it was.

Tough Times Ahead After Yu Darvish Trade

It is hard to accept, but it is ok. The Cubs are one of the top franchises in all of major league baseball. They’re also one of the few franchises with a top fanbase that will support the team through thick and thin. Wrigley is a special place to many Cubs fans who have made life-lasting memories there. Do not worry, there will be more memories to be made by a Cubs team that will excite just like in 2015.

Remember, when a team struggles they can acquire more talented players through the draft. I don’t know what’s going to happen. The only thing I want to see is how the Cubs can develop better pitching. If Jed can find the magic and unlock this liability the team has had this whole decade, then the future of the team is in great hands and we will be looking forward to hoisting more pennants in the future.

Tough times may lie ahead, but so do better times. So embrace the pain, embrace the future. We will reach the mountain top again.
