Matt Araiza had to go. It was both warranted and wise for the Bills to act swiftly.
Similarly, BYU wasted no time in issuing a lifetime ban to a fan who yelled a racial slur at a Black volleyball player from Duke during a match Friday night. Zero tolerance.
Golf’s Uncivil War is escalating. We can add Open Championship winner Cameron Smith and Harold Varner III to the list of luminaries who are defecting to the Murderous Saudi Blood Money Sportswashing Tour. Bye.
Brady says he’s ready to go. Yeah, that 11-day absence was weird. But it’s also none of my or our business. Twelve looked OK Saturday night in his brief pre-season finale stint against the Colts.
Put this in ink. But not on your leg. Yankees reliever Aroldis Chapman has been placed on the 15-day injured list with what is described as a “pretty bad infection” in his leg resulting from a recent tattoo. Baseball.
Somebody spent $12.6 million on a baseball card. I don’t get it. Even if it is a Mickey Mantle card.
Auburn A.D. Allen Greene is stepping away. Here’s hoping War Eagle football coach Bryan Harsin has a Plan B as well.
This is not a second guess. I was screaming at the tv in real time Saturday afternoon when soon-to-be ex-Nebraska football coach Scott Frost called an onside kick after his team had scored a touchdown to take an 11-point lead over Northwestern. It blew up in his face, as did the game, as will the ‘Huskers’ season. Self-inflicted. The good news is that for a time during the game in Dublin, Ireland, fans were treated to free beer. Cornhusker fans and Wildcat fans drank for different reasons. Nebraska…Nebraska…has now lost seven straight games.
Surprise, surprise. Jimbo has named Haynes King as the Ags’ starting quarterback. Actually, it’s no surprise at all. It is also, IMO, the right decision.
At least Jimbo made up his mind. Michigan Coach Jim Harbaugh still hasn’t been able to choose between Cade McNamara and J.J. McCarthy. So Harbaugh is going to have each of those QBs start a game before he decides on a Number One for the rest of the season. That’s no way to run a railroad.
The Astros are trotting out their starter, Verlander, this afternoon in Baltimore. Stop ‘em, J.V.
