Tremendous credit is due to his trainer for helping make the transformation possible. Speaking of trends reversing themselves for the better, United are undefeated since they acquired midfielder Bruno Fernandes from Sporting CP in the January transfer window. It appears that the Portugese was indeed the x-factor that the club was missing.

What will Sports Betting bring in 2020?

This has hit sports betting extremely hard as it has reduced the number of options available to players. With very few sports being played it means that players who enjoy betting on sports have had to begin trying out alternatives.   [Read more…]

Troy Pride, Julian Love: Similar Draft Positions, Also Similar NFL Careers?

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are the kings of the NFL Draft.  With six additional draft picks this past Friday and Saturday, their total is now up to 511 all time. No other college football program has totaled more than the Irish. Cole Kmet led the way, going to the Chicago Bears in the second round on Friday.

Day Three saw cornerback Troy Pride Jr. selected by his home region Carolina Panthers with the 113th overall pick, and it immediately invited comparisons to Julian Love, who went with the 108th overall selection to the New York Giants last year. Both spent their senior seasons at Notre Dame as the team’s CB1. Pride is the first Notre Dame selection by the Panthers since quarterback Jimmy Clausen in 2010.
