Let’s Be Honest…

Happy New Year!!!

Our unfiltered thoughts on the past week in sports…

Tebow reigns! This time when it matters most. But let’s not forget Demaryius Thomas with that mean stiff arm.

The Saints scored all over the Lions. There was no mention of Suh and the defense throughout the game. That could be a good thing as he needs to work on his rep as a dirty player.

The Lions definitely weren’t ready for prime time on Saturday night but with that young nucleus they could be dangerous for the next decade.

Let’s Be Honest…

Our unfiltered thoughts on the past week in sports…

The screwed up NCAA football postseason can be summed up by the #7 team in the country playing the 6-6 Arizona State Sun Devils in a bowl game on December 22nd.

Kellen Moore finished his college career with a 50-3 record and if he went to a school other than Boise State he may have won a Heisman.

USC QB Matt Barkley decided to stay in school and return for his senior season with Lane Kiffin. But…Kiffin over the NFL? Huh?

The NBA season came back with a bang on Christmas Day and while some things definitely changed (the Mavericks rolling over like dogs to the Heat for example) some things stayed the same:

Oh Stevie, we know you like to celebrate with the best of them but do ya think it came back to bite you in the final minutes with those dropped passes?

Was the Houston Texans stadium built on an ancient burial ground?  How else can you explain them losing their first and second string quarterbacks in the year it looked like they’d run away with the division?

Ndamukong Suh deserves his two game suspension.  Not as much for this act as for the horrible attempt at an explanation and that wack apology.

Lee Corso dropping the F-bomb on ESPN College GameDay was an interesting segue to a thrilling Saturday of college football.

And for all that entertainment we are left with three SEC teams at the top of the BCS rankings. The SEC domination continues.

Oregon lost to USC in what was called an upset but really isn’t.  USC is still a good program.  The issue is that they are still on probation and no one likes their coach, Lane Kiffin.

So Stanford and Boise State did their part this weekend to ensure we get a Alabama/LSU rematch in the National Championship.

Thankfully, Oklahoma State blew out Texas Tech 66-6 to remain firmly in the #2 spot.  Let’s hope they show up against Oklahoma on December 3rd.

Arkansas may have had the best return of the year. You be the judge.

Our unfiltered thoughts on the past week in sports…

Tony LaRussa announced his retirement after leading the improbable St. Louis Cardinals to a World Series victory.  That’s what you call going out on top.

Eric LeGrand, who was paralzed from the neck down in a game last season, inspired his former Rutgers’ teammates, among many others, by leading the team onto the field this weekend.

Congrats again to old man Joe Pa for being the winningest coach in Division I football with 409 wins. What’s the over/under on how high that number will get? Read the rest of this entry »

The NFL has mandated that all stadiums display fantasy stats on the scoreboard but is that going to make more fans go to the games when the at-home/bar experience is far more entertaining?

The Saints and Packers gave us a great start to the 2011 football season.  They also showed us why defense and special teams matter.
