Chicago Bears Full Draft Predictions


The calendar has finally flipped to April. Phil Emery and the Chicago Bears are putting the finishing touches on their draft plans and are preparing their war rooms for the three-day extravaganza known as the NFL Draft.

Most sports media outlets have been churning out mock drafts for the past few months. These mock drafts, however, usually only cover the first round. The most daring sports analysts may even sneak out into the deep end and take a stab at predicting the second round.

Knowing that predicting the draft is just about as easy as picking a perfect NCAA Tournament Bracket, its understandable why fewer still try to predict all seven rounds. But, in the face of my own better judgment, I will attempt to do exactly that.

Here are my predictions at all seven rounds worth of Chicago Bears draft picks, including two predictions that are nearly guaranteed to be correct. [Read more…]

Another Shooting at Virginia Tech; 2 Dead, Campus on Lockdown

Virginia Tech, the site of an April 2007 massacre in which Cho Seung-Hui shot 32 people dead on campus before killing himself, is on high alert lockdown again, in the wake of another shooting.

Two people, including a policeman are confirmed dead. Details from this story are only just beginning to develop. The suspect has not been apprehended and students are being told, “Stay indoors. Secure in place.” Alert sirens went off and emails were sent out.

An alert on the Virginia Tech school’s website said: “There is an active campus alert in Blacksburg. Everyone should seek shelter or stay where you are. Blacksburg Transit service is suspended until the alert is lifted.”

#9 Virginia Tech Hokies: College Football 77 in 77

The state of Virginia and Virginia Tech have made the news a lot lately, although not always for what you might want/expect. The second strongest earthquake in state history rumbled across the state Wednesday. Hurricane Irene is set to batter/drench the state this weekend. Yesterday, the school’s most famous college football player, and arguably most famous/infamous alum, Michael Vick was the centerpiece of the sports media world yesterday, as ESPN made a dumb-ass decision revolving around a picture of him.

Go here for pics of the earthquake wreckage and cleanup.

And three weeks ago, another gunman was spotted stalking the Blacksburg, Va campus. Which reminded us all of April 2007; when we were all Virginia Tech Hokies.

It’s all enough to let us have fun by escaping into college football.
