October is up to its tricks again. In Week 6, we had a ghost sighting of the Adrian Peterson from his prime. The newly acquired Arizona Cardinal arose from the dead, carrying the ball 26 times for 134 yards and two touchdowns. The 32-year-old proved he stills has a lot left in the tank. Peterson stole...

A longtime favorite of NBC’s Must-See TV has returned to the air and should have remained in the vault. The Will & Grace revival kicked off and is one of the biggest disappointments since the decision of the 2016 Presidential election. Though many critics praised the revival series, this show nee...

It was nearly simultaneous. Buffalo State’s football team had its back against the wall Saturday. Down 14-2, the RPI Engineers were looking to punch one in and grab a three-score lead in the first half. And on came the men’s hockey team. Some shirtless, some sleeveless, but all in Bengal pride...

Don’t look now but Trevor Siemian of the Denver Broncos is the No. 1 quarterback in fantasy through the first two weeks of the season. After managing only 18 passing touchdowns in 2016, Siemian has already thrown six through two games. He and the Eagles’ Carson Wentz are the top quarterbacks adds...

Television has come a long way since the days of Good Times, Maude, and All in the Family. However, television has not lost its social issues orientation. Many of the show on television now, revivals included, are going to be aimed at some of the issues covered by the news. Though, it seems as though...

Way back in February, the Academy Awards had their chance to poke fun at the administration and still give out awards to people who do meaningful work in the film industry. The Emmy Awards, however, went much further with the Trump slamming, and it was thanks to the host of the awards, Stephen Colber...

Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Rick Dennison had a flawed plan going into Week 2. His offense didn’t show up Sunday afternoon and it showed on the scoreboard in the Bills' loss, 9-3. The game came down to the very last play with an overthrown pass from Tyrod Taylor to Zay Jones, which would...

The Fantasy reaper has struck again. I would like to start with a moment of silence for arguably the best fantasy player in the game, David Johnson. The Arizona Cardinals’ all-purpose running back has been placed on the IR after a wrist injury in the game against the Lions. He is expected to be out...

Tyrod Taylor has proven that he doesn’t deserve to be the starting quarterback for the Buffalo Bills and has no promising future with the organization. I believe there is nothing to be gained by starting Taylor because he takes up too much of the Bills’ cap, for his less than mediocre play. In...
