SPORTS DAILY: Here’s why Archie Miller recruited Ed Schilling
 What a pair they must make on the recruiting trail, former Dayton coach Archie Miller and former Wright State coach Ed Schilling combing the countryside for basketball talent.

Did Archie Miller take swipe at Dayton Flyers fans on his way out?
 Nobody can fault Archie Miller for swapping Dayton and the Atlantic 10 for Indiana and the Big Ten. Too much money and prestige to turn down, and with so many impact seniors leaving and a bit of a rebuilding phase likely looming, it was just time. Coaches know when they’ve taken a program as far as it can go. At the risk of dampening...

SPORTS DAILY: Belting a woman should disqualify Joe Mixon from NFL
 No surprise that more than a dozen NFL teams, including the Browns and Bengals, have met with Oklahoma’s Joe Mixon about possibly employing him. The talented running back tantalized scouts by covering 40 yards in 4.43 seconds at Oklahoma’s pro day this week. He had not been invited to the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis because...

Baseball: Sinclair freshman has week worth of highlights in one game

SPORTS DAILY: 5 thoughts about the Browns and the Combine
 The Cleveland Browns are a hot topic at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis this week, a curiosity of sorts given their draft position, perennial quarterback need, 1-15 record last season and a coach, Hue Jackson, who doesn’t shrink from the spotlight. With that in mind, here are five thoughts regarding the state of the Browns...

SPORTS DAILY: Browns should draft Trubisky, who wants to play for them
 Assuming his hands are big enough at the scouting combine, that he stands closer to 6-foot-3 than 6-foot-1 and that his Wonderlic score contains two numbers, the Cleveland Browns should select North Carolina quarterback Mitch Trubisky with the No. 1 pick in the draft. Why, other than having needed a quarterback since about 1994, should they...

SPORTS DAILY: A good reason to root for the Wright State women Friday
 Putting objectivity to the side, I will be openly rooting for Wright State to beat Wisconsin-Green Bay when the two Horizon League women’s basketball titans square off at 5 p.m. Friday at the Nutter Center.

SPORTS DAILY: Can’t the Reds get a pleasant surprise for once?
 The jarring news about Homer Bailey on Wednesday brought fresh attention to just how foolish it was to lavish that six-year, $105 million contract on him and how there’s nothing anyone can do about it now.

SPORTS DAILY: Browns’ McCown move brings back (mostly bad) memories
 When the Browns jettison an aging quarterback with diminishing skills, it’s always a sad day because it makes me think of Bernie Kosar, Bill Belichick and that whole sordid chapter in 1993.

 With New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady 60 minutes from his fifth Super Bowl ring, it’s time for a stroll down memory lane.

SPORTS DAILY: Dayton native Cole a good match for Cavs?
 It would seem a simple solution.
