It’s pretty clear that Texas Tech is gonna chase after UTSA football coach Jeff Traylor with a wheelbarrow of cash. That reflects intelligence on the part of Red Raider A.D. Kirby Hocutt.
But there’s a difference between chasing and catching. Where do we go from here? Wherever Traylor wants to, because he is the dealer in this card game. Dealer’s Choice. Roadrunner fans hope the name of the game is not “Cutthroat.”
It is an absolute pleasure to watch Alvin Kamara play football.
So, bye, Seahawks. That’s five losses. And your quarterback is still hurt.
This is also now a lost season for the WFT. Ryan Fitz isn’t even going to have a progress-tracking MRI on his dislocated hip for another two weeks. Plus, Washington’s “vaunted defense” has shown no “vaunt” whatsoever. Finis.
Sadly, I could construct this daily sports blog exclusively around injured NFL quarterbacks if I so chose. It’s Jets’ rookie Zach Wilson’s turn in the training room. Sprained PCL. (Yes, there is such a thing, and it’s not the Pacific Coast League.) Two to four weeks. So, who’s going to lose two to four games in Wilson’s absence? Like it matters? Oh, the Jets made a deal late Tuesday to re-acquire Joe (Arm Porn) Flacco from the Iggles? That’s nice…That should make all the difference in the world.
Packers’ WR stud Davante Adams tested positive and will almost certainly miss Thursday night’s marquee game against the undefeated Cardinals. How big a deal is that? Big enough to move the spread in Vegas. You know, if you pay attention to things like that…
Bears Coach Matt Nagy is on the COVID-19 list, too. The Green Eyeshades of the Desert don’t seem to care at all. Oh, the humanity…
Auburn Coach Bryan Harsin won’t say if he’s vaccinated. So far, Auburn won’t say if they’ll fire Harsin.
It won’t be “Watch Yo Ass Wednesday” until, you know, Wednesday. But Sark might wanna cast at least a casual mirror glance at his backside a day early. Yeah, I know 20th ranked Baylor is actually the favorite Saturday in Wack-oh On The Brazos. But losing to the Bears would drop Texas to Fo and Fo.
Current Astro Ace Framber Valdez against former Astro Ace Charlie Morton tonight in Game One of The Fall Classic.
I just like calling it The Fall Classic. I’m old. I can relate.
