The Ride with JMV

If you ask Chris Ballard (and several draft pundits), the Indianapolis Colts might have grabbed the steal of the draft in the 1st-round when they selected edge rusher Laiatu Latu out of UCLA.  Latu was the most productive pass rusher in college football last season, and if it weren’t for lingering concern over a neck […]

The third and final of the Indianapolis Colts divisional rivals, the Tennessee Titans, have undergone an offseason of change.  Gone is head coach Mike Vrabel following a 6-11 season, replaced by former Bengals offensive coordinator Brian Callahan. Ryan Tannehill, the team’s starting quarterback since midway through the 2019 season, is gone as well. In his […]

Yesterday, we looked at the Jacksonville Jaguars, where they stood and what they might do in the NFL Draft. Today, it’s the Houston Texans turn.  The Texans were the NFL’s Cinderella story last season. After a 2022-23 season that saw them finish 3-13-1, the Texans cleaned house, firing Lovie Smith and hiring DeMeco Ryans as […]

The NFL Draft is coming up, meaning now is as good of a time as any to look at one of the Colts AFC South rivals: the Jacksonville Jaguars.  The 2023-24 NFL Season was an up-and-down experience for the Jaguars. They began the year with an 8-3 record, before collapsing down the stretch to finish […]

The Indiana Pacers went into their series against the Milwaukee Bucks feeling confident, having ended the regular season with a nice run and comfortable in the knowledge that, at least for the first game, they wouldn’t have to face Giannis Antetokounmpo, who was out with a calf injury.  That confidence was quickly swept away, with […]

The NFL Draft is a week away, and for the Indianapolis Colts, there could be plenty of options available at the 15th-overall selection.  The Colts are fortunate; this year’s draft could have anywhere up to 6 quarterbacks selected early. That would be a best-case scenario for Indianapolis, as it would increase the likelihood of them […]

The Indiana Pacers will begin their playoff series against the Milwaukee Bucks this Sundays.  It’s a matchup against a team that the Pacers know well, and whom they had a lot of success against in the regular season. The Bucks and Pacers played 5 times this year, with Indiana winning 4 of those contests. Many […]

The Indiana Pacers are heading to the playoffs, where they will face a familiar foe in the Milwaukee Bucks in the first round.  The Pacers had a lot of success against the Bucks during the regular season, winning 4 out of their 5 matchups. However, much has changed for both Indiana and Milwaukee since they […]

A familiar face will be in Indianapolis on this week.  Andrew Luck, the former Colts quarterback who abruptly retired on the eve of the 2019 season, will be back in the city he once called home for the Chuckstrong Tailgate Gala, the annual fundraiser hosted by the Colts and former head coach Chuck Pagano.  Luck […]

It was a tough night for the Purdue Boilermakers in the NCAA Tournament Championship, where they fell short against UConn 75-60.   Zach Edey was his usual self, putting up 37 points, but it wasn’t enough, as UConn overwhelmed the Boilers with their talent, and effectively shut down Purdue’s shooting from distance. The game was close […]
