As he should.
I like golf. I watch golf. I watched none of this. It just didn’t feel right as an Olypmics sport to me.
This is a bummer. On the plus side, maybe he go back to being a catcher when he’s heeled up. I feel like Benintendi might not be giving up left field any time soon.
You know that Saban is pissed about this (because he’s always pissed about something), but Bama finally did the right thing.
No pressure or anything.
That’s not forget that Tom Brady is the only *real* cheater in the NFL though….
And so it begins…again…
Joe Posnanski bringing the heat:
> I think Tom Brady is unequivocally, unambiguously, thoroughly and 100-percent innocent of any and all charges of deflating footballs in a cheating capacity. I don’t think he ever asked anyone to illegally deflate footballs. I don’t think he wanted footballs inflated below NFL standards. I think the whole thing — every last page of the testimony, every last leak to the media, every text made public, every curious statistic like the one showing the Patriots fumbled less than other teams and every blunder Brady made along the way, like his awkward press conference and the destruction of his phone — was a bunch of phony-baloney nonsense that was either directly or indirectly inspired by a made-up NFL witch hunt. I think he’s entirely innocent.
Or, you know, the MLB could hire competent umpires instead of the jokers making all these horrible calls.
I think this was the right move. Good job, Clemson.
It’s hard not to root for this guy.
I have no love lost for South Carolina, but this is outrageous. The NCAA is a disgrace.
Is it really that surprising that a 7th grader can figure out something that Goodell can’t?
Are you serious? The home markets “failed” these NFL teams? This whole thing is disgusting. NFL teams demand public funds, tax breaks, etc… to get a stadium built and then make billions of dollars without actually benefiting the surrounding areas (despite claims they do.) Part of me feels bad for these areas losing their teams, but part just wants to invite them to join the growing crowd of people who thinks the NFL is a disgrace.
Dan Wetzel tears down College Football for having the playoff games on New Year’s Eve:
> You move an event from a national holiday synonymous with the sport to the middle of a workday for many and this is what happens – ratings drop as much as 45 percent. Double that by placing a second game on a night with endless entertainment options and longstanding traditions and you’re completely spitting in the face of many of your fans.
I was one of those people who felt much less inclined to watch the various games on New Year’s Day after this. What other sport would put its bet games in a subpar time slot as a prelude to inferior games?
The second *was* pretty fun to watch.
In case you need one more reason to root for Dabo.
As this play was developing I screamed “I can’t believe this is happening again.” After the pass was completed, however, the whole feeling of the game changed.
Oklahoma talked *a lot* before this game, so I quite enjoyed watching Clemson thump them. That said, I don’t think there is going to be a lot of talk from Alabama before the title game.
> Clemson’s main goal is going to be stopping Henry, which is what Michigan State tried to do, but in doing so, it’s also going to have to put pressure on Coker. The Tigers actually executed this feat well against the Oklahoma offensive line. Clemson got a ton of pressure on Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield and sacked him five times. Mayfield, who has been an additional rushing threat for the Sooners at times this season, finished with 10 carries for minus-15 yards.
The previews of the game are already starting, and this one sounds about right.
