Damian Lillard to Milwaukee, where he’ll join Giannis? Didn’t see that one coming. If the Bucks stay healthy, they win. It’s that simple.
Losing starting quarterback Conner Weigman for the season with a broken foot is a devastating blow for the Aggies. Weigman had been playing as well as any QB in the country. And, yes, I thought that was a dirty hit that knocked him out of the Auburn game last Saturday. Max Johnson, who did a nice job in relief of Weigman, gets the start this week vs. Arkansas.
Hey, Mel Tucker. You’re fired. With cause. Michigan State owes you nothing. You are an embarrassment.
The Astros are a game-and-a-half up on the Mariners with three games left in the race for the final AL Wild Card berth. The folks who do these computer calculations say Houston has a 83.2 percent chance of making the postseason.
The Braves’ Ronald Acuna Jr. has become the first player in MLB history to hit at least 40 homers and steal at least 70 bases in the same season. I’m not sure I can even process that.
Is Patriots QB Mac Jones a dirty player? There are a lot of whispers, including some from teammates and former teammates. And Jets CB Sauce Gardner accused Jones of cheap-shotting him in a pile during the Pats’ 15-10 win on Sunday. I’m still trying to figure out how a QB manages to get a rep as “dirty.”
I’m taking the Pack over the Lions tonight at Lambeau. My early impression of Jordan Love is a good one. But while Lions QB Jared Goff isn’t getting much national attention, he has been spectacular through the first three games of the season.
Zeke ain’t what he was. But he’ll drain whatever he has left in his tank Sunday against the Cowboys. I’d be wary of that, especially after watching the Dallas run defense get trashed by the Cardinals.
