The brains behind TheGruelingTruth.com
While a team effort, TheGruelingTruth.com is the brainchild of the founder of The Grueling Truth Sports Network, Mike Goodpaster.
Mike’s sporting credentials are undeniable. A football news and betting site reviewer who is also a football coach with nearly 30 years of experience, Goodpaster has worked with a range of teams including Evansville Rage, Owensboro Rage, and the Northern Kentucky River Monsters. During the last five years, Mike has built a stellar reputation that has resulted in a record of 26 wins to 8 losses as Head Football Coach. Over the course of his career, Mike’s record is all the more impressive still: as Head Coach at High School and Pro levels, his total win-loss record is 176-41. Unsurprisingly, such results have seen Mike named as Coach of the Year across a variety of different leagues on eight separate occasions, and Mike has also been named the #1 ranked private football coach in the Midwest by coachup.com for the past four years.
Mike utilizes all of the insight he has accrued over the years to ensure TheGruelingTruth.com is as good as it can possibly be. He can help identify teams and players worth following and paying attention to, as well as in-depth analysis of their history along with forecasting what the future may hold.
The primary focus sports for TheGruelingTruth.com include football (both college and pro), boxing, baseball, hockey, basketball, and MMA. However, there are no true limits to the sports we cover: from rugby to NASCAR to soccer, there’s a huge amount of variety found right here on TGT.
