I’m disappointed. In a season where the most interesting storyline seems to whether or not Kansas can win a national title with the FBI investigating, the NCAA bearing down and Snoop Dogg shooting fake money at dancers on stripper poles, I desperately wanted San Diego State to get into the NCAA tournament undefeated, blow through some East Coast juggernaut in Madison Square Garden and get to Atlanta with a shot at becoming the first team in 44 years to have a perfect season. … [Read more...] about Monday Overreactions: Should we be worried about San Diego State and Gonzaga?

It’s become something of a theme. UCLA (17-11 overall, 10-5 Pac-12 Conference) has proved nearly unstoppable during a stretch in which it’s won nine of 11 games, including a season-high five in a row, to get back into contention for an at-large berth to the NCAA tournament. … [Read more...] about The Sports Report: What time is the Kobe Bryant memorial?

Now, Watt is right if he criticizes what would be the biggest fault of the tentative deal, the one that must be addressed when the 32 player reps meet this week. The owners and the union agreed to play a 17th game with a max pay of $250,000 per player—but with an asterisk. A source tells me that individual players can negotiate with their teams for a higher rate than $250K for that 17th game. The players made that part of the deal because they emphasized how important it was to take care of the lower and middle-class players in exchange for a little hit to the high-salary guys. But per Over The Cap, there were 179 players in 2019 who made more than $250,000 per week (which in 17 weekly increments comes out to $4.25 million). Watt’s due to make $912,000 per week in 2020. Why should he play the 17th game for $250,000? That’s got to be fixed. The NFL and the union have to realize the basic inequity of making players negotiate for the same rate of pay in a 17th game … [Read more...] about FMIA: A 2020 Combine Preview and How to Save the Ill-Fated Pass Interference Replay System
