It is 6:28 a.m. as I write. Cole Beasley is still an idiot.
We’ll have to wait to see what this “alliance” among the Big 10, the ACC and the Pac-12 means going forward. But we do know this. So long, Big 12.
That means Texas Tech will be pissed off and paranoid this season. Pissed off and paranoid is always a good mental state for a football team, especially if it has a hotrod quarterback. Red Raider Coach Matt Wells has named Oregon transfer Tyler Shough as his QB1. Shough started seven games for the Ducks last season. He’s a bad man.
I know you’ll appreciate this cheery reminder. But COVID is going to jack with this football season at least…at least…as much as it did a year ago.
Seems Cam made an innocent COVID protocol mistake. That’ll just make it easier for the Hoodie to go with Mac Jones, which I think he clearly wants to do.
The Bears are doing the right thing. Justin Fields is going to be a force. But I saw him over the weekend and he still has zero clue what he’s doing. Dalton gets the regular season start against the Rams. Fields will have to wait awhile to assume the throne. Like, you know, until Week Three or so.
Lamar Jackson takes exception to the notion that this is the year the rest of the NFL will “figure him out.” Then he’d better learn how to throw the ball outside the numbers like an NFL quarterback. If he can do that, the league will NEVER be able to figure him out.
I’ll give LSU credit for trying. No vax, no negative test, no-go for fans at Tiger Stadium. Can you imagine what a boiling cauldron of Saturday night COVID that place would be without those restrictions? “Death Valley,” indeed.
No, it’s not Liz Frank. It’s Lisfranc, which is French for “really bad news.” Here’s hoping Jags’ rookie running back Travis Etienne makes a full recovery from the foot injury that has ended his season.
Delighted to see that Dick Vermeil and the late Cliff Branch are now finalists for the PFHOF. Vermeil impacted the sport. Branch was part of three Super Bowl winners with the Raiders. Only guys named Rice, Edelman and Irvin have more postseason receptions in NFL history.
Yadier Molina is coming back for one more season with the Cardinals in 2022. I left St. Louis in 1986. I think Yadi was only in his fourth year with the Birds.
Orioles have lost 19 straight. Ghost of Johnny Unitas?
Giants have taken 20 of their last 27. Moving moment last night as Brandon Belt hit two homers, hours after learning his grandmother had died of COVID.
No Federer. No Nadal. Now no Serena. So no interest in the U.S. Open.
It’s 6:57 a.m. Cole Beasley is still dumber than slow dirt.
