I would say this is the beginning of the end for Scott Frost at Nebraska. But the beginning of the end started a year ago. This is now close to the end of the end. Bet the under.
Aggies get a commitment from a Swedish tight end? Class of 2023. 6-6, 250. That’s a big meatball. Has never played football in the U.S. and in fact has not played a football game at all for two years because of the pandemic in Europe. Name? Hell with that. You know my policy. I ain’t groveling over a 15-year-old. Come to the U.S., be a good dude, be a good student, be a good football player, and maybe I’ll learn your name. Or not.
Oregon Duck defensive end Kayvon Thibodeaux (I have learned his name), could be the #1 overall pick in next spring’s draft. He will be able to afford a nice suit for the show. Tibs has landed a sweet marketing deal with United Airlines, which is offering flights from Eugene to selected Duck road game cities this season. The promotion starts Sept. 9, when Oregon faces Ohio State in Columbus. This is all cool under the new NCAA NIL provisions. KT is doing OK. He’s already racked up $400,000 in various, and completely legal, promotional agreements. Hey, if it walks like a Duck…
The Big 12 has announced that any team with a lack of available players because of COVID or any other reason will be charged with a forfeit. Boom. You lose. Other team wins. If both teams are short, it will be declared no contest. This is spot on. Good move.
The Falcons are 100 percent vaccinated. That’s a big deal. I could see them making a big jump this season.
Mike McCarthy is in a bad spot. If Dak plays in the preseason, it’s undeniably risky. If he doesn’t, he will no doubt be rusty when the regular season starts against the Bucs. Wouldn’t wanna be ya, Mikey.
You never want to see your name in the same sentence with “FBI,” do you, Deshawn? Whether it’s in the context of “perp” or “victim.”
Both K.D. and Draymond are blaming Warriors Coach Steve Kerr and G.M. Bob Myers for breaking up the band. The players say they should have been able to just talk it out and hug it out after their infamous argument in 2018, even if it got loud and uncomfortable and public. Instead, they say Kerr and Myers swept it all under the rug. They say the rug then got dusty and lumpy.
Ohtani? Oh, my! Hits his 40th homer of the season in the same game in which he pitches eight strong innings in a 3-1 win over the Tigers.
It would be nice if the Astros could win at least the finale of their four-game series against the Royals today. Dang…
Hey, that’s just dirt on my glove. And I really didn’t mean to throw my belt at you. Sticky times in MLB…
