Where to Begin when Creating a Sports Website

If you love playing or watching sports, then you often have the urge to share your knowledge of statistics, players, and events to your friends and family.

Pat Fitzgerald Has Strong Takes on Instagram Likes, Influencers, Smartphone Addiction

pat-fitzgerald-northwestern-football

Northwestern did not stage a spring game this year and head coach Pat Fitzgerald absolutely, positively made the right call there. As someone who militantly believes there is actually no such thing as a “spring game,” I’m one million percent in support of that decision.

A game requires an actual external opponent, so what went on at myriad other schools all across the country today weren’t anything more than intra-squad scrimmages with branded titles. Not having a so-called spring game meant that Pat Fitzgerald wasn’t asked to analyze meaningless statistics in a faux game. Instead, the conversation with reporters covered a vast array of topics, and many of them went above and beyond football.

If everything goes as smoothly as possible, and there are no unexpected hiccups along the way, legal sports gambling will be in the state of Illinois by the next Super Bowl. That’s according to Illinois House Revenue and Finance Committee Chairman Mike Zalewksi, who late last month filed four separate amendments to House Bill 3308 to jumpstart the Land of Lincoln’s movement on sports betting.

“Enacted and up and running, I’ve set an ambitious goal for the Super Bowl, but I can’t say for sure that will happen,” Rep. Zalewski told The Sports Bank in an exclusive interview on Monday.

nfl referee

As a University of Illinois alumna, I can say from experience that no fan base is as paranoid about the officials as Illini fans are.

The one exception being, oh, every other zealous sports fan base on the planet. Remember “fan” is short for “fanatic,” and one thing that every member of all zealous fan bases has in common is a serious belief that the refs are all out to get their team. Which makes RefRatings, a new app that just launched in 2019 and is available for free in the App Store, timeless.

Northwestern PK Drew Luckenbaugh Raising the Bar By Developing New App

drew luckenbaugh

Northwestern’s back-up placekicker Drew Luckenbaugh was thrust into duty this week when first-stringer, Charlie Kuhbander went down with an injury. Luckenbaugh’s first career field-goal attempt Saturday went about as poorly as possible.

He anticipated his initial attempt, a 42 yard effort, with so much gusto that he actually kicked it before it was fully placed, and the result was an unsightly line drive that barely left the ground — and ended up nowhere near the goalposts.
