During the opening round of the NFL draft, the Seattle Seahawks selected Rashaad Penny with the 27th overall selection. The former Aztec running back will begin his professional career in the Pacific Northwest. His selection there came as a bit of a surprise to many draft pundits, as they expected Penny to go either in the second or third round. However, Seattle was needing a big running back in the…

Over that stretch, the Aztecs have found the…


The Eric Hosmer Signing is Not 2015 All Over Again

February 25, 2018

Last Saturday night, the San Diego Padres and free agent first baseman Eric Hosmer finally agreed to terms. It might have been the longest offseason negotiation in modern sports history and was a very painful process. As the signing was announced, most Padre fans were naturally excited. After all, this is without a doubt the biggest free agent signing in franchise history. But although a majority of the fan base…

February 11, 2018

Now that both the college football season and the NFL season are over, the attention of the football world will turn to April’s NFL draft. But before we find out who gets to play where, the best prospects in the collegiate game will head to Indianapolis for the 2018 NFL combine.

What “Trevor Time” Meant To Me

January 24, 2018

Trevor Hoffman was voted in to the National Baseball Hall of Fame today, where he will join Dave Winfield and Tony Gwynn as the only players to go into “baseball’s heaven” wearing San Diego Padres’ colors.

SDSU Freshman Jalen McDaniels is San Diego’s Next Star

January 17, 2018

During the holidays, a friend of mine came to visit from Cleveland. He clearly fell in love with how beautiful this city is. He then asked a question I didn’t have an answer for. He asked me, “Who is the biggest sports star in San Diego?” At first I thought of Rashaad Penny, but he is off to the NFL. Then I thought Wil Myers, but after his 2017 season…

The Padres Should Target Manny Machado Next Winter

December 12, 2017

Over the weekend, Padre’ fans were disappointed in the fact that Japanese superstar Shohei Ohtani decided to sign, just north of Petco Park, with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (quite a mouthful). The frustration was all over social media, as a lot of fans felt that the organization came up short in the pursuit of a big-time free agent. I’m more of a glass half-full kind of guy. So,…


The Rashaad Penny Snub is a Bad Look for College Football

December 8, 2017

On Monday, the Heisman Trophy committee came out with the list of the finalist for this year’s award. The players selected by the committee are as follows: Oklahoma QB- Baker Mayfield, Stanford RB- Bryce Love, and Louisville QB- Lamar Jackson. SDSU’s Rashaad Penny isn’t on the list, and I think that’s a big mistake. The decision makes the committee look lazy and totally disinterested in any player that doesn’t play…
