I was trying to sing “Jesus the Nazarene” but instead stood amazed in the presence of my own stupidity.
We were at White’s Ferry Road Church of Christ in West Monroe, La., attending church with the Robertson family, the clan of redneck millionaires featured on the hit-program Duck Dynasty on A&E—and that’s when it hit me… Continue reading →
The scene would have been familiar to basketball fans of the University of Louisville: Peyton Siva going end-to-end to dunk a game-winner over a 7-footer as time expired. It didn’t matter that the game was the last of a series of exhibitions on a Far East mission trip against a Russian team. It was time for someone to step up and take responsibility for the game’s outcome… Continue reading →
Yawn…yawn. Seemingly just another day at the office for point guard Steve Alford. The smooth 6-foot-2 senior led Indiana University to the National Collegiate Athletic Association basketball championship this season, averaging 22 points a game. But his fluid movements on the floor belie the effort and diligence away from the camera that went into his contributions toward the team’s national title.
Alford ended his career as the Hoosiers’ four-time Most Valuable Player. He finished as the number 2 all-time scorer in the Big 10 Conference–a mere deuce behind Michigan’s Mike McGee…

Major League Baseball’s Opening Day has no comparison. The excitement, hope and freshness of that day can’t be matched by any other sport. It’s likely because it signifies, for most, the beginning of sunny days and warm weather after spending the winter fighting icy and snowy conditions, unless, of course, you live in a tropical climate.
That’s what it felt like when I understood what it meant to follow Christ. The newness and hope were overwhelming because the worries of this life became insignificant when thinking what eternity with or without God would be like. The burden of fear, in regards to eternity, had been lifted… Continue reading →
BRYCE JOHNSON: As someone who is so entrenched with the Duke program, how do you handle it when Duke loses? BOB HARRIS: Better than I used to, let’s put it that way! But, you know, about the third or fourth year I had the Duke job, I remember we had lost a football game and I was heading home and I was just really grousing about it, and all of a sudden, and I don’t know why, but something just told me, “Bob you get paid the same dollar for a win or a loss. You don’t have to take it so hard.” So I try to keep that in perspective… Continue reading →
Let’s go back to 1988. To the suburban community of Lake Bluff, Illinois, home of Lake Forest High School. Rob Pelinka is nearing the end of an outstanding prep basketball career. As a senior, the 6-foot, 6-inch guard is averaging 30 points and nearly 10 rebounds per game.
Recruiters from around the country are knocking on his door, offering their championship promises on a daily basis. Coaches from Arizona, Stanford, Illinois, and Michigan are regulars at the Pelinka residence. That’s not to mention the letters of interest from perennial basketball powerhouses North Carolina and Duke…
