Leading up to the start of the 2013 regular season, the New York Jets were the laughing stock of the NFL. Nobody, especially the New York media, gave the Jets any chance of having success.

Replacing legends is a near-impossible task in sports. Very few have been as successful as, say, Aaron Rodgers with the Green Bay Packers.

The summer is often a soft time for exciting sports news. Baseball is in the “dog days of summer” and many divert their attention to NBA free agency. However, basketball is not the only sport that captivates fans with transactions in trades. The summer is also full of massive marquee moves in the world of soccer.

With only two months to get rid of unwanted players and sign players needed to improve, clubs are forced to be in constant negotiations.
With a 3-0 defeat of Aston Villa on Monday night, Manchester United had officially clinched the Barclay’s Premier League Title. As a die-hard fan, I couldn’t be any happier.

Following the NCAA National Championship, I read a blog on Yahoo sports April 9 about the top 10 contenders for next year’s college basketball season. Even though the 2013-14 season is far away, I was still eager to see how people see next year shaping out. Out of the ten teams highlighted, the University of Michigan was not mentioned once. That writer needs to either be removed from his job, or reconsider his definition of a contender. Michigan is definitely a contender to cut down the ropes in Cowboy’s Stadium next year. The youngest team in the tournament outplayed each of the opponents and only lost to Louisville after some questionable officiating.
