“All I Want For Christmas”…. A Sports Fan’s 5 Christmas Wishes…

The Holiday Season is right around the corner, and instead of a new sweater, I decided I want 5 things to happen in sports within the next calendar year. I can say with confidence that these 5 wishes aren’t just my personal wishes, but could be shared by a wide range of sports fans.

(2) Conferences To Not Go Overboard With Realignment

I don’t mind a few teams switching. Especially teams that deserve to because they’ve outgrown the competition in their conference.

It’s a slippery slope, hopefully some kind of similar structure can stay in place.


I went to Villanova. To me, there is a huge difference between FBS and FCS quality. However, the FCS playoff is just awesome to watch. I’ve really loved it the past few years. Now imagine, if the big boys had a playoff. It’d be unbelievable. It’s an amazing concept to think about. I’m hoping….
