It could have been worse. I guess that’s my realistic/fatalistic reaction to Tuesday’s tweak of the NFL postseason overtime system. Look, the old rule absolutely made sense, and I’m happy it’s being retained for regular season games. But all the public and media braying following that divisional playoff game between the Chiefs and Bills made a postseason change inevitable. This one is relatively benign, and, yes, I understand the “finality” of postseason football.
I’m starting to feel that there’s a real chance The Jolly Roger is going to sit Deshaun Watson down for the entire ‘22 season. That’s “22,” as in 22 civil lawsuits.
But one way or the other, at one time or another, Watson is going to get his guaranteed $230 million. That has created Business Hell for Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti as he tries to develop a long-term negotiating plan for Lamar Jackson.
I’m glad I’m not the dude or dudette who now has to come up with a quick re-do of the 2022 Conference USA football schedule. Marshall, Old Dominion and Southern Miss are splitting to the Sun Belt, effective immediately. Among the issues of conference realignments, NIL and the transfer portal, welcome to Unknown Chaos For the Rest of Our Natural Lives.
Tiger played all 18 at Augusta National on Tuesday, just 14 months after his wreck. So, he’s playing next week unless he says he’s not. And so far he has not said he’s not.
Yeah, I get tired of coaches whining and bitching. Especially basketball coaches. Especially especially college basketball coaches. But I kinda feel Buzz Williams’ pain. His Aggies are good, and should have received an NCAA berth. But now it’s on to the NIT Final against Xavier (not Javier) with the right to chant, “We’re Number 69!” on the line.
Did you see Doncic go 30-12-12 in the Mavs’ 128-110 blowout of the Lakers last night in Dallas? LA is now on the outside of the play-in picture looking in with seven games to go. I still think they oughta put a keg at midcourt for these “play-in” games.
“I’ll take ‘Dignity’ for four hundred, please.”
