The Bleacher Creature

We Dropping Tilted? It’s almost impossible to dislike the Little League World Series, unless you’re also a person who likes to spend their time kicking puppies and ripping the Life Alerts out of the varicose veined hands of innocent grandmothers who have fallen and can’t get up. Even if you’re a victim of the short […]

Can LeBron or Kawhi stop Boogie, Silver and the rest of the Warriors? graphic by Conner Maggio

Movers, shakers and Lakers

Will Kawhi lead a new team to the promised land? Did Boogie break the league? Is LABron legit? The Bleacher Creature reveals all that and more. News coverage in the NBA offseason typically focuses on superstar free-agent signings, which range anywhere from franchise-altering (think LeBron to the Heat), to league-disrupting (KD to the Warriors) to […]

Crystal (basket)ball, NBA playoffs edition

Editor-in-Chief Justin Guglielmetti gives his take on what will transpire in this year’s NBA playoffs. Eastern Conference How disappointing. This was supposed to be the first season since LeBron James first took his talents to South Beach eight years ago where a legitimate threat to one of his teams existed in his own conference. There […]

100 percent, totally accurate summer predictions

Student writers Zane Cawthon and Thomas von Borstel and Editor-in-Chief Justin Guglielmetti dispense with the crystal balls to give their scientifically validated predictions. Mayfield Drafted by Browns, Spontaneously Combusts After a tremendous Heisman-award-winning career at the University of Oklahoma, Baker Mayfield will be taken with the first overall pick of the NFL Draft by arguably […]

The Bleacher Creature

Harden > LeBron, don’t @me Though I was but a wee bab at the time, I’ve read quite a bit about the travesty that was Karl Malone’s winning the MVP award over Michael Jordan in 1997. Apparently, the Mailman got most of his narrative momentum from a “Sports Illustrated” piece, the argument of which went […]

The Bleacher Creature

Possession Arrow Goes to the Jump Ball This may not seem like the timeliest subject in the world now that March Madness is over (SUCK it, Michigan!), but I wanted to weigh in on the possession arrow/jump ball debate after receiving a few dozen fan emails about it. If you’ve read much of my basketball […]

People have a personal stake in whether they allow the newscycle to affect their lives and consume their time. Graphic by Madeline Woods

Point/counterpoint: News needlessly clutters life

Being perfectly informed isn’t feasible, but not following any news should prohibit you from discussions on current events. We all have that one friend, or 20, who proudly abstains from any sort of political discussion because they just can’t muster up the time and energy to actively follow the news. If you are someone who […]

Improve TU #17: Cut the shit: Improve TU’s toilets

While functional, some bathrooms on campus aren’t necessarily places you want to use. A wise sports editor once said, “You can judge an establishment based on the quality of its restrooms.” To be fair, I was commenting on one of my grandparents’ favorite burger joints rather than a university, but I feel that the point […]

Improve TU #20: D1 athletics drains Golden Hurricane

D1 athletics often cost schools more money than they make and don’t serve as a draw for potential or current students. Schools that have D1 athletics absolutely love to point out that they have D1 athletics. They love talking to parents and potential students about D1 athletics, they love having one whole ad (!) air […]

The Bleacher Creature

Justice for Jean! I hate Michigan. Not the state, which I’m told has at least a few decent people. No, I’m talking about the university basketball team, with their pretentious-ass blue and maize uniforms (come on, who uses a color named after corn?), which has done nothing less than suck all the joy and goodness […]
