It’s that special day where we all gather around the table, stuff our faces with turkey, and praise the invention of the elastic waistband. After eating and putting on our favorite pair of stretchy pants comes the real feast— three NFL games: Houston at Detroit as an appetizer, Washington (the fighting RG3’s) at Dallas (the fighting disappointments) for the main entrée, then New England at the New York Jets for dessert. Whether you are a football fan or not, you know you will end up watching some portion of these games, and I’m here to help. Here is a preview of what’s happening inside and outside the lines during the three game feast tomorrow. Read more
Another day another dish. It has been a solid week of college basketball. I cannot tell you how much I’ve missed this time of year. We have upsets, upset scares, and straight thumpings by teams. Below I am going to grade some of the local teams on their start so far, and also give some sleepers to watch for. Also, I will give you some top games to watch this weekend because unless a slip-up happens, the SEC is out of the National Championship football race, therefore no one cares about football.

We here at Wise Guise try to agree with the rules set in place by the organizations that we write about. But I, Garrett Hall, have to break away from the norm on this story. Read more
Hey Guise. Welcome back to The Dish! It’s Monday, so that means that you are likely doing one of the following: celebrating your fantasy football team, nervous because you’re only ahead by 10 points and the person you’re playing has Mike Wallace left, or you are like me and you are dead last in your fantasy league.

Welcome back to The Dish everyone. I know that so far you probably have not learned anything that you did not already know about your team. And for that, I do apologize.
Obviously college basketball starts tonight, and I thought that some people might be interested in some top games for this weekend. I know, I know – it is still college football season and there is not a chance you are going to watch college basketball over college football, bite me. My heart lies with college basketball and when it starts, there are only two other leagues that matter – the NFL and the NBA. Read more
So it’s that magical time of year again. College basketball is right around the corner. The NBA season has started and that means that college basketball is next. Naturally, that means that it is time for the Top 25 rankings to be released, with the accompanying debates and speculation. That is good and all, but I want to say up front that I hate having a Top 25 poll before (at least) the two-week point in the season. For the most part, you are basing your rankings off of what freshmen were ranked in high school. Media outlets that have never coached the game, or more specifically these players, have no idea how the players are going to mesh with the established team already.
Therefore, I do not plan to announce my own or bash anyone’s top 25 poll that is out there. I’ll be using the AP Top 25 throughout the season in my references to teams. I trust it the most, and it is the most widely accepted. So my ranks will match up with the majority of other sites.
That being said, I am willing to discuss teams that I think are going to have a big year. Personally I am going to be following about 20-30 teams this year to keep up with how they are doing. But for now, here are some details on the local teams and how they are going to stack up. Read more
