Nicely done, Nebraska! I’m talkin’ ‘bout that world record crowd to witness a women’s sports event. The Huskers packed 92,003 fans into their football stadium Wednesday to watch NU’s volleyball team beat Omaha 3-0 on what was dubbed “Volleyball Day in Nebraska.” The previous record was 91,648, set in April of 2022 at a Champions League soccer match in Barcelona.
I’ll give Colts G.M. Chris Ballard high marks for candor, at least. Ballard summed up what appears to be the unsalvageable relationship between the Colts and running back Jonathan Taylor thus: “It sucks for the Colts. It sucks for Jonathan Taylor. And it sucks for our fans.” Roger all of that.
The ‘Niners say there is no way they will trade holdout defensive superstar Nick Bosa. Duh…They’ll get all this worked out by early next week.
Am I missing something? (Always a possibility.) Trey Lance poses no threat to Dak Prescott, now or going forward. That trade was just an opportunity for Dallas to acquire a young, physically talented backup who is still on his rookie contract in exchange for a fourth-round draft pick.
Joe Burrow is back on the Bengals’ practice field, six weeks after he strained his right calf. Joe Cool should be greenlighted for Cincy’s opener against the Browns.
That’s five straight for the streaking Astros, who completed their first-ever sweep at Fenway with a 7-4 win over the Red Sox. Houston is now just a percentage point behind Seattle in the AL West, with the slumping Rangers a game behind. The ‘Stros are seeking their sixth division title in seven years.
