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 June 26, 2016, by Travis Pulver Good, quality football coaches can be hard to come by in the NFL. Sometimes guys end up being just a flash in the pan. Others are products of their talent, but some are great at getting the best out of every player on the roster. When a […]

Posted on June 26, 2016, by Travis Pulver Being filthy, stinking rich is damn hard work. It couldn’t have been easy to make enough money for people to call you filthy stinking rich. Well—unless you inherited it, that is. So while becoming wealthy did not involve hard work, remaining so certainly can be. If you […]

Posted on June 24, 2016, by Travis Pulver There are two times when NBA fans can expect to see a lot of trade activity—before the in-season trade deadline and the days leading up to as well as the day of the draft. In respect to in-season trades, teams are trying to improve their playoff odds […]

Posted on June 24, 2016, by Travis Pulver It wasn’t that long ago that the Indiana Pacers were the toast of the Eastern Conference; the only team that came close to challenging the LeBron James-led Miami Heat. But then Paul George broke his leg playing for Team USA, and they had to figure out how […]

Posted on June 22, 2016, by Travis Pulver It took over half a century, but it finally happened. The City of Cleveland can now claim to be the home of a champion, the NBA’s Cleveland Cavaliers. The city had hoped for one when native son LeBron James first joined the Cavaliers back in 2003, but […]
