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 October 14, 2018, by Travis Pulver When the 2018 season started fans in Houston were looking forward to seeing the same exciting, high-flying offense they saw during Deshaun Watson’s injury-shortened rookie year. But so far this season, it is not looking like that offense is going to reemerge. It certainly didn’t against the Buffalo […]

Posted on October 14, 2018, by Travis Pulver There were not many who believed the Dallas Cowboys had a shot at beating the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday afternoon. Yes, Dallas can run the ball well and the Jags are not great at stopping the run. But since the Dallas pass game is so bad, the assumption was […]

Posted on October 13, 2018, by Travis Pulver When the schedule came out, the matchup for Monday Night Football in Week Six looked like a great one. You had one of the brightest up and coming young quarterbacks in the game, Jimmy Garappolo, versus arguably the best in the business, Aaron Rodgers. Sounds like an offensive […]

Posted on October 05, 2018, by Travis Pulver The New Orleans Saints appeared to find a much-needed defense finally last season. But there run ended in the divisional round. When this season kicked off, it is safe to say they set their sights a little further. However, while they are 3-1, the solid defensive unit from […]

Posted on October 04, 2018, by Travis Pulver The Jacksonville Jaguars are in new territory this season. After last year’s run to the AFC Championship game, they are no longer expected to be the league’s doormat. Now people actually expect them to win games. Kansas City, on the other hand, was a team people had questions […]

Posted on September 30, 2018, by Travis Pulver The Chicago Bears have had one of the better defenses in the NFL this season. But could Khalil Mack and company put a damper on the Fitz-magic? Or would Ryan Fitzpatrick have another 400-yard passing day? The journeyman quarterback has been destroying defenses this season. Could he destroy […]

Posted on September 30, 2018, by Travis Pulver This game had the potential to be a very good win for Penn State. The Nittany Lions controlled the game in the first half; you could even say they dominated it—except on the scoreboard. Ohio State came back and even took the lead for a time. But that […]

Posted on September 30, 2018, by Travis Pulver Every season, for at least a week or two, the media acts like the Texas Longhorns are the new team to beat. They act like the once-proud program is set to become one of the elite teams in the nation once again. After getting embarrassed by Maryland, it […]

Posted on September 20, 2018, by Travis Pulver During the preseason, the game slated for Monday Night Football in Week Three did not have fans excited. There just didn’t appear to be anything compelling about the Pittsburgh Steelers taking on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Steelers with all their weapons against a Buccaneers team led by […]

Posted on September 20, 2018, by Travis Pulver Fans likely expected the New England Patriots to beat the Jaguars last week because that’s what the Patriots do. They face good teams and win. But this time it didn’t happen. Jacksonville was the better team by far; it wasn’t even close. But the Patriots are in a […]
