USC Trojans 2015 Spring Football Preview

What's ahead for the Men of Troy this spring?
USC Trojans 2015 Spring Football Preview

There is a lot to like about the 2015 USC Trojans.

 

Steve Sarkisian has a year under his belt as the head man at Heritage Hall and this roster is loaded with elite-level talent. The quarterback position is locked down by a potential Heisman candidate and the offensive line is filthy good.

 

Vanderbilt Commodores 2015 Spring Overview

What are the key questions to watch Derek Mason's second year?
Vanderbilt Commodores 2015 Spring Overview

Derek Mason’s first season at Vanderbilt wasn’t easy. The Commodores did not win a game in SEC play and two of their three non-conference wins came by three points or less. However, as the 2015 season approaches, there’s reason to expect improvement out of Vanderbilt in Mason’s second year. The losses in the senior class were minimal, and the Commodores return 17 starters.

5 MLB Teams That Could Disappoint in 2015

Joe Girardi’s Yankees keep getting older while the rest of the AL East gets better
5 MLB Teams That Could Disappoint in 2015

In the last five seasons, 21 of the 30 teams in MLB have appeared in the postseason. While this parity has been good for the game as a whole, the other side of the coin is that teams have had trouble maintaining success on a year-to-year basis. With that in mind, here are five teams that fared pretty well in 2014 that could take a step or two back this season.

 

Sweet 16 Game Preview and Predictions: Xavier vs. Arizona

Musketeers, Wildcats feature two familiar faces
Sweet 16 Game Preview and Predictions: Xavier vs. Arizona

Xavier coach Chris Mack didn’t spent time thinking of a diplomatic or clever way to respond to the awkward situation of facing his predecessor and former boss in the NCAA tournament.

 

“Honestly, it stinks,” the Musketeers coach told the Turner crew.

 

This Tournament has had a funny way of setting up matchups that are just as notable for their backstory as the action on the court.

 

Sweet 16 Game Preview and Predictions: Wisconsin vs. North Carolina

Marcus Paige and the Tar Heels will try to knock off Wisconsin
Sweet 16 Preview and Prediction: Wisconsin vs. North Carolina

Wisconsin and North Carolina have met only one time in the NCAA Tournament, and if this weekend’s Sweet 16 meeting is anything like their first clash, the fans are for a treat.

 

In 2005, Bo Ryan’s sixth-seeded Badgers gave the consensus No. 1 and Tar Heels all they could handle in the Elite Eight, losing to the eventual national champions 88-82.

 

It was Williams’ first national championship, and now that the roles are reversed, Ryan is looking to return the favor in search of his first Division I national title.

 

Sweet 16 Game Preview and Predictions: West Virginia vs. Kentucky

Can the Mountaineers stop the Wildcats' run for perfection?
Sweet 16 Game Preview and Predictions: West Virginia vs. Kentucky

Sooner or later, the debate of Kentucky’s greatest team will become a major topic. If this year’s team goes 40-0, the debate might not last long.

 

There’s also the 1995-96 Untouchables or 2012 national championship team or the first title team in 1948.

 

One team that might get shortchanged is 2010, a team that featured NBA All-Stars John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins, plus pros Eric Bledsoe and Patrick Patterson.

 

That team was done in by guys named Da’Sean Butler and Joe Mazzulla in the Elite Eight.

 

Sweet 16 Game Preview and Predictions: Wichita State vs. Notre Dame

Get ready for a backcourt showdown between Shockers and Irish
Sweet 16 Game Preview and Predictions: Wichita State vs. Notre Dame

This is probably not something that gets said very often in college sports: Notre Dame wants what Wichita State has.

 

Notre Dame is a college athletics powerhouse, primarily due to the football program, though the men’s basketball program is no slouch. Wichita State doesn’t even have a football team.
