Nine first-year eligible players have been nominated for the 2023 class of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. I’m happy for anyone and everyone who gets in, but I will especially happy if (when) longtime Browns OT Joe Thomas gets fitted for a gold jacket.
Traditional rivalries are the lifeblood of college football. For absolutely no valid or rational reasons, we’re going to lose the annual Bedlam game between Au Jus and Okie State just as “Sooner” as OU heads to the SEC. My reaction? I’ll just leave it at “sad.”
Pac-12 Commissioner George Kliavkoff says he doesn’t expect any more of his conference’s schools to split for the Big Ten or Big 12. “Denial.”
You know that I’m not a big fan of expanding the CFP to 12 teams. But since the powers have decided to do it, let’s do it in 2024, rather than waiting until the end of the current tv contract that runs through 2025. Figure it all out.
Judge’s 60 homers are the most by a right-handed batter in AL history. That’s way cool. But Judge also has a chance to win the Triple Crown in homers, RBIs and batting average. That would be even cooler.
The Astros have posted 17 shutouts this season. And that team ERA of 2.90 leads the AL.
The Titans’ mistakes didn’t end with the final gun in their 41-7 Monday Night loss to the Bills. At the end of the game, Tennessee o-lineman Bobby Hart took a swing at a Buffalo player but instead hit a Buffalo coach. Neither the Bills coach nor the player has been identified by the NFL. But the league has identified Hart, and suspended him for one game. WTH is going on in Tennessee? Or in Indy?
Canada plans to drop its vaccine requirement for people entering the country by the end of September. That will of course impact MLB, NBA and NHL teams.
North Carolina quarterback Drake May has apologized for saying that players who go to N.C. State are guys who wanted to play for the Tarheels, but couldn’t get into school in Chapel Hill. Apologize? For what? They can settle all of that the Friday after Thanksgiving.
