Why Golden Tate is the Perfect Fit to the Lions’ Puzzle

The Detroit Lions started out the first day of free agency a little slower than other teams, but their progress says otherwise.

The Lions kicked off the fun part of the offseason by re-signing Joique Bell to a two-year, $7 million extension, followed by re-signing wide receiver Kevin Ogletree to a one-year deal.

Opinion: All They Need to Do Is Lose

Expectations for the Pistons coming in to the 2013-2014 season were quite high. With the acquisitions of Josh Smith and Brandon Jennings, it seemed as if it was finally time for the Pistons to end their playoff drought.

Currently, Detroit is 24-39 and three games out of the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. The team’s lack of success has led to first-year head coach Maurice Cheeks getting fired and, presumably, general manager Joe Dumars also getting fired at season’s end.

Opinion: Spartans Played Best Game Yet

What was it? Was is head coach Tom Anastos’ timeout early in the first period? Was it the sellout crowd at Munn Ice Arena? Or was it the grit and determination of the senior class?

Whatever the reason, one thing is predominantly clear: the Spartans played their best game of the season last Saturday against No. 12 Michigan.

While it was not the first time the Spartans have rallied back to win a close game this season, no game had the stakes as high as this one. Read More…
