I’m not a Saban hater. Far from it. I respect him. But he was flat-out wrong to single out Texas A&M and Jackson State in his otherwise accurate description of the chaotic NIL landscape of college football. Jimbo has every right to be pissed. So does Deion.
Oh, and regarding NIL rules (and absence thereof), acquaint yourself with the term “collectives.” It’s today’s euphemism for “big money boosters.” We don’t even realize how filthy this already is, or how filthy it’s going to be.
I have the privilege of being on the Chris Duel Show with Shannon Sweeney this morning from 6-9 on The Ticket 760. This subject will no doubt dominate the conversation. Join us!
It’s full-on, unfettered free agency in college football. Former Pitt first-team All-America receiver Jordan Addison is transferring to USC. That’s not a transfer “portal,” it’s a rabbit hole. No overt evidence of tampering here, but…
I think Tiger spoiled us and fooled us with his first two rounds at The Masters in April. What we saw Thursday in Round One of the PGA is more representative of what we’re going to see from him going forward, IMO.
If Rory ends up winning in Tulsa, I’d be fine with that. It was nice to see him in a groove yesterday.
Yes, I think Boston will win their Eastern Conference series against the Heat. I think Boston is the better team. Udoka has done a fabulous job. Did you see that 17-0 first quarter run in the Celts’ 127-102 Game Two win?
Attention, Cowboys fans. Objects growing larger in your rear-view mirror are Iggles. Philly picked up former Giants cornerback James Bradberry, who was a cap casualty in New York. Philadelphia can put Bradberry, Darius Slay and slot corner Avonte Maddox on the field in their nickel package. The Eagles are having a nice offseason.
Congrats to retiring Ravens punter Sam Koch on a wonderful 16-year career. Koch played in 256 games for the Ravens, 27 more than any other player in franchise history. He was cool enough and professional enough to see the writing on the wall when Baltimore drafted a punter in the fourth round.
Count me among those who still think Daniel Jones can be a solid NFL quarterback.
If the Astros were to hold a garage sale, how much do you think they could get for the Rangers? That’s eleven straight home wins over the Rangers dating back to last season.
