March Madness

Much to the joy of college basketball fans everywhere, March Madness is finally here, and it’s time for upsets to dominate the headlines. Teams such as Kentucky, Duke, Virginia, Villanova, Arizona and Wisconsin all have National Championship aspirations and have big matchups coming soon.

NFL free agents

As we are reminded every year, the sports industry is one of the highest paying industries in the nation. The NFL happens to be the most popular sports league in America, and free agents are getting paid as such this offseason. Defensive force Ndamukong Suh agreed to sign with the Miami Dolphins on a huge $114-million deal with $60 million guaranteed. It will be the biggest deal ever for a defensive player.


San Francisco 49ers

If it wasn’t bad enough that the Niners lost head coach Jim Harbaugh, San Francisco is now losing players at a high rate. Mainstays Frank Gore, Patrick Willis and Justin Smith are all set to depart the Bay Area and move on to greener pastures. Gore potentially to Philadelphia or Indianapolis, and Willis and Smith to retirement. This could get worse before it gets better, with rumors of quarterback Colin Kaepernick on the trading block.

Arizona softball

While Mike Candrea’s squad continues to hold a top ranking, the Wildcats have struggled to take down top-flight talent this season. Arizona went 2-3 at the Judi Garman Classic, the second straight road trip, and suffered big losses. Friday’s 20-2 loss against No. 14 Auburn was the worst loss in school history. With Pac-12 Conference play right around the corner, Arizona can’t afford to keep losing to talented teams.
