Three key matchups to watch during Super Bowl LVI

On Sunday, Feb. 13, the AFC champion Cincinnati Bengals take on the NFC champion Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LVI. On the road to this stage, the Bengals ended their 31-year long playoff win drought. The Rams, led by Miami University alumni Sean McVay, had to defeat the legendary Tom Brady, who beat them in Super Bowl LIII.

It’s time for a ‘Group of Five’ playoff

It ’s time we accepted that schools outside out of the Power Five (P5) conferences don’t have a chance at winning a national championship, and – with the ever-increasing trend of high-profile players opting out of bowl games in favor of preparing for the NFL – it’s time we made the postseason serious for Group of Five (G5) schools.

Super Bowl #MACtion through the years

 With six rostered players on the two squads playing in this year’s Super Bowl, the Mid-American Conference (MAC) returns the same number of players as in last year’s game. I looked at the recent history of MAC alumni playing in the biggest game in American sports.   The only MAC schools to have any connection to Super Bowl-appearing head coaches, whether alumni or coaching experience, are Miami (alma mater of Sean McVay and former home of Sean Payton as an offensive coordinator) and Western Michigan – and Western Michigan’s only claim is briefly having John Harbaugh, a Miami grad, as a running back and outside linebackers coach.

FC Cincinnati and another season of ups and downs – mainly downs

 One club holding the all-time records for the worst offense, the worst defense, and the worst goal differential in league history, and not setting all three together in the same season, is unprecedented in top-division soccer.   FC Cincinnati would be the first, and only, team to achieve this feat.  It’s only fitting for a club coming from this city, one where the sporting tradition is one of pain and suffering.  And I cannot wait for next season.
