Sports Roundtable Week 9


Bub Volz, Aidan Segal, and Stephen Cosentino

The Sports RoundTable:

The Sports Roundtable consists of four sports driven students that watch sports 24/7. Some of the biggest sports topics will be discussed by seniors Stephen Cosentino, Aidan Segal,  and Bub Volz in this epic roundtable discussion. It saddens the Sports Roundtable to announce that we have lost our dear friend, Nick Smith, to another class.


Q: Bub- “Is there something wrong with the Cavs because they have been horrible recently, only having 7 wins in the month of January? They have had 8 losses this month and that’s not like the Cavs.”

Stephen- “They really need help from their bench. They lack consistent depth from the bench. If they were to complete a trade I think they could get going in the right direction for the second half of the season.”

Segal- “Well, they have dealt with injuries and you must remember, they do not have the depth that the Warriors have. Cleveland will be fine. They will still be the #1 team in the East. They are just hitting a rough patch. Emotions are high as seen with LeBron James and I think the media has exaggerated the issue.”


Q: Segal- “We have often talked about the greatness of Tom Brady, but let’s talk about Bill Belichick. He has six Super Bowl rings and is responsible for assembling perhaps the greatest dynasty in NFL history. Is he the greatest coach of all time?”

Stephen- “As much as it hurts me to say, he is. Billy is a dog of a coach and knows how to gameplan to beat some of the world’s best players. He manages to win with guys that weren’t heard until they go off in a game or two.”

Bub- “I believe he’s the greatest coach of all time. Tom Brady had a major part in winning these super bowls. He didn’t win when he was the head coach in cleveland but the stats alone in New England make him the greatest coach of all time.”


Q: Stephen- “The Pro-Bowl has passed us, personally I thought it was the best Pro-Bowl in years. Do you guys think the players are going to continue to try in the Pro-Bowl?”

Bub-  “I don’t think they will. There was a lot of first time pro bowlers and they had to show off their skills. They tried about 75 percent and usually it’s around 25 percent effort. I do not like the pro bowl and never will.”

Segal- “No, the Pro Bowl is past it’s prime. I really don’t find it entertaining at all. In a broader sense, I think all of the All-Star game formats are going down the tubes.”
