This edition of Sports Spectrum "Conversations" features someone from the world of music, Luke Smallbone, from the band for KING & COUNTRY. A few of their songs that you may have heard include: "The Proof of Your Love," "Busted Heart (Hold On To Me)" or "Light It Up." Luke comes from a large and musically gifted family (Rebecca St. James is his sister), who moved from Australia to Nashville, Tenn., when he was young. He joined us to talk about music, the NBA, his own hoop dreams that were shattered by injury, how God presented him with a new dream, and why Christians should make the best and most inspired art...

This edition of Sports Spectrum Conversations features the head football coach at Liberty University, Turner Gill. Coach talked to us about his playing career at Nebraska and in the CFL, his minor league baseball career, and how God prepared him to be a head coach and leader. Coach Gill also shares his memories of his mother, who passed away just a few weeks ago, and how she always encouraged him in his faith...

Much ado has been made about the Nationals shutting down ace Stephen Strasburg in the middle of a pennant race, so I figured I would go ahead and give my own two cents. In case you haven’t heard, the Nationals have said all season they were going to be very careful this season with Strasburg because he is coming off of Tommy John surgery. The plan was to limit him to 160-180 innings, much like they did last season with Jordan Zimmerman. This Saturday, the Nationals shut down Strasburg. having pitched 159.1 innings and finishing 15-6 with a 3.16 ERA, and 197 strikeouts. Perhaps the Nationals believe he can't get hurt when he's not on the field, so his future will be safe. Well, unless he plays pickup basketball like Aaron Boone. Or carries deer meat up stairs like Clint Barmes...

It may be hard to believe, but college football is back. Tonight, South Carolina and Vanderbilt will open up the 2012 season and it’s one sure to be filled with many different storylines. This offseason we got some good news about the future of college football at the FBC level. We are getting playoffs! It’s great that there will be more of a chance for champions to be decided on the field instead of on computers and polls...

This is the first in a series we are starting here on SportsSpectrum.com called Sports Spectrum "Conversations," where, you guessed it, we have a conversation with a Christian athlete or personality. It will be in Q&A format and in audio podcast to go along side of it, so you can enjoy the interview either way. This edition of Sports Spectrum "Conversations" features the man who many people call the face of TNA Wrestling (Thursdays 8 ET SPIKE TV), the "Phenomenal" AJ Styles. Styles (born Allen Neal Jones) is a TNA Grand Slam champion, which means he's held every championship there is to hold in the company, and is one of the most exciting wrestlers in all of pro wrestling today. Styles joins us to talk about his wrestling career, how he became a Christian, what it's like be a Christian in the pro wrestling industry, why Tim Tebow can't take his shirt off in public, his love for Christian hip-hop, and the Super Mario Bros...

All eyes in the sports world were on Southern California last fall when USC football coach Pete Carroll named Matt Barkley starting quarterback. The story...

Since we’re in the middle of the summer Olympics, I thought I would do an Olympic-themed baseball column. Baseball was removed as an Olympic sport in 2008, and this travesty must be brought to a little (David) Justice. So I thought it would be a good idea to build a baseball team out of this year’s Olympians. I have my own unique criteria and explanation for why each Olympian fits on the diamond. 1. Dawn Harper - 2B I would put Harper, a superb hurdler who finished second in the women's 100-meter hurdles, at the top of the lineup so she can use her speed to get on base and get a few steals. But instead of sliding, she will revolutionize the game by hurdling over defenders. She also has plenty of speed to have the range to cover second base...

The pageantry, the rivalries, student sections, fight songs and traditions like running through the “T” at Tennessee or releasing the “War Eagle” at Auburn....

With the MLB trade deadline fast approaching (July 31, 4 p.m. EST), I thought it would be a good time to take a look at every team in baseball and see if they should be buyers or sellers and figure out what each team should do. Yesterday, we took a look at the National League. Today, it’s the American League’s turn.
