Friday was the 10th anniversary of one of the most impressive feats in the history of professional basketball, and arguably in all of sports. On that day in 2005, Kobe Bryant scored an unbelievable 81 points in a game against the Toronto Raptors. This point total has only been surpassed once in the history of professional basketball when Wilt Chamberlain scored 100 points against the New York Knicks back in 1962.
Whether you're blogging about the NFL on your own or writing for someone else, there is one question that is eventually going to come up, and I hate it with a passion: "Who is the best quarterback ever?"
With all due respect to copyrights, Shane you ignorant slut.* The Matt Campbell hire by Pollard and Iowa State is a home-run, wrapped in a slam dunk, and thrown like a Rodgers-to-Rodgers Hail Mary. Snagging Campbell from a MAC powerhouse like Toledo was about as good a hire as a program like the Cyclones can hope to get. Become one of us, Shane. It’s okay to drink the Kool-Aid this time and let me tell you why.

This article was written by my close friend, and editor, Shane Dayton. A response will hopefully be posted sometime this weekend. Stay tuned!
*NOTE: This article was written as a response to the quick hire and the immediate reports afterward. The surprising speed of news about recruits, staff being filled out, etc. would affect parts of this article. In other words, I'm already breaking my promise and drinking the Kool-Aid because I'm a Cyclones fan: other than Kool-Aid what have we really had during football season since Seneca? Still – the points in the article and red flags mentioned are still worth discussing.
If you’re a regular follower of this blog, you know that I wrote an article on Monday detailing the four teams that I think will be in the top 4 of the final College Football Playoff rankings. If you read that post, you also know that I said towards the end of it that, while those are the four teams I think will be there at the end of the year, they aren’t necessarily who I think are the four best teams in college football right now. So who do I feel are the top 4 teams right now? Read on and find out!
Welcome! My name is Chris Spooner. I am an overly-passionate Dolphins fan who has many opinions about his team, and the sports landscape as a whole. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoy voicing them.
