About Travis Pulver

Sports are not life to Travis but they sure as heck do make life a lot more fun. Over the last few years, Travis has worked for several news-oriented sites that focused on sports, especially football, baseball, basketball, and to a lesser extent boxing and MMA. Having grown up in the football-crazed state of Texas football is his first love. According to his mother, he was more excited to watch NFL and college games as a baby then Sesame Street or Mickey Mouse. His passion for sports quickly spread to baseball (favorite team is the Houston Astros), basketball, and track and field as a kid. It wasn’t until his college years that he discovered the tremendous game of rugby. If you want someone who has a passion for the game, Travis is the journalist for the job! Travis graduated from Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana with a masters in Political Science. Prior to that, he attended IU Purdue in Indianapolis, Indiana where he earned his Bachelors degree in Political Science and earned his first degree at Texas A & M in Galveston, TX, a BS in Maritime Administration. Travis, a native Texan, has been blogging about sports and other subjects for several years. He currently lives in Indiana (is a basketball fan but hates going to the Indy 500) with his wife and two adorable kids.

Posted on July 4, 2018, by Travis Pulver It is not hard to understand why some people are upset with the Golden State Warriors signing Demarcus Cousins. It’s bad enough that they can put four all-stars on the court every night; now they have fifth. As if beating them already wasn’t tough enough. With their new […]

Posted on June 28, 2018, by Travis Pulver The free agency period this year was supposed to be focused on LeBron James with the world waiting to see where he would take his considerable talents to next. In a way, it still is, but James is not the most important person in play. That honor belongs […]

Posted on June 28, 2018, by Travis Pulver LeBron James will go down as one of the best players ever to pick up a basketball. Some would say that he is the GOAT while many more would just say he is one of the GOATs. The most common comment his detractors throw back at him is […]

Posted on June 26, 2018, by Travis Pulver On the surface, it may seem like whether to give Chris Paul a ma-deal or not is an easy decision. He was an integral part of the team’s run last season. Had he not been injured the Rockets may have made it to the NBA Finals (maybe). When […]

Posted on June 26, 2018, by Travis Pulver It was almost anti-climactic, but the NBA finally held its award show for the 2017-2018 season Tuesday night.  The season has been over for a couple weeks, but someone apparently thought it would be a good idea to give fans time to move on from the season before […]

Posted on June 24, 2018, by Travis Pulver When longtime Oklahoma Sooners head coach Bob Stoops stepped down, a door was opened for someone to walk through—which Lincoln Riley did. Expectations are often muted when a longtime, successful head coach steps down. But with an obvious candidate on hand and ready to step in (Riley), expectations remained […]

Posted on June 19, 2018, by Travis Pulver When the rumors first surfaced that the New England Patriots were thinking about trading away their stud tight end, Rob Gronkowski, every fan’s first inclination was probably “yeah, right.” When Robert Kraft called the rumors “hogwash”, we were inclined to believe him. It would be foolish to trade […]

Posted on June 18, 2018, by Travis Pulver The Pittsburgh Steelers had high hopes for Martavis Bryant at one time. But after a pair of suspensions and some ‘trade’ drama last season, they decided that enough was enough. So, they shipped him off to the Oakland Raiders for a third-round draft pick. New head coach Jon […]

Posted on June 15, 2018, by Travis Pulver Life hasn’t just been good for fans of the San Antonio Spurs. It’s been great. They were lucky enough to have one great player (Tim Duncan) follow another great (David Robinson). It appeared that the luck was continuing with another great player, Kawhi Leonard. But it appears that […]
