So many people are lecturing me on what reasoning I can or can't use to make a Super Bowl pick. Crazily, I thought it was MY pick.
A&M QB Kenny Hill: 8-of-10 for 90 yards. Gamecocks front seven has been miserable so far.
Final 5 for 2015 F Esa Ahmad per his dad: West Va, Ohio State, Wisconsin, Maryland, Oregon
I can't believe my eyes. Texas A &M playing defense
Where's Mike Davis?
Pharoh Cooper was wide-open, should have held on to that pass.
Already wrote tonight's story: TAMPA, Fla. -
Johnny Football = system QB. :)
Crowd is suddenly quiet up in South Carolina
I've decided to sign all of my work emails "Love, Michael" I feel this will open up new worlds for all involved.
QB pressure was non-existent for Gamecocks that drive.
Jay Gruden's father, Jim, never watches his sons coach in person. Because he lives here (and it's preseason), he was planning on being here.
Despite its many flaws, few sports have the tradition and bring out the passion like college football. Can't help but be happy it is back.
This is like seven levels of inception here http://t.co/ftZk1MlfC5
I will have job news soon. Not sure when but you'll be seeing a lot of me this season.
Google Bob Love the guy could flat out play http://t.co/0lprgmo10w
...Landry also starts at WR. OL starters: Fox, Arkin, Brenner, Garner and TBA (Shelley Smith potentially).
... Taylor, Davis, M. Thomas and Don Jones starting secondary. Daniel Thomas starts at RB, Matt Moore at QB,Matthews and D.Willilams at WR
Dolphins resting MANY tonight..D-line starters: Tevin Mims, Anthony Johnson, Kemal Johnson, Dion Jordan; McCain, Trusnik, Jenkins at LB
Pharoh Cooper (No. 11) could be Spurrier's do-it-all guy this season: WR, KR, PR and some Wildcat QB.
Gamecocks looking to be more multiple in their defensive fronts this season. 3-4 plays to USC's depth at linebacker.
LDS counselor Dieter Uchdorf and wife will be at Utah-ISU game tonight.
Makes you wonder how far Booker can stretch his shooting range
Kirk Cousins and Colt McCoy are each on the field getting some warmup throws in.
Interesting trend line on Trevor Booker as rookie 5 of 31 from outside 16 feet, then 40% in 11-12, 38% in 12-13 and 43% (35-81) n 13-14
In 2009-10 Paul Millsap was 80 of 166 (48%) from 16 feet+ and in 10-11 he was 125 of 272 (46%) and not till 13-14 stretched to 3 point line
Gamecocks' home winning streak of 18 games is the longest in FBS currently.
Comparing Trevor Booker after 4 years to Paul Millsap after 4 years. Millsap better overall but lots of comparable elements.
if that isn't an invitation for the Gamecocks to run Mike Davis constantly, I don't know what is.
FWIW going into USC-Texas A&M: Aggies were 110th among 123 teams in rushing defense last season (222 yds/gm, 5.38 yds/rush) more...
Gigi Stoll finishes with a 1-under 71 that has her tied for 26th (that'll likely change). Three birdies and two bogeys in her round.
Mark Helfrich on managing 100 players in major college football program: “We want to recruit the right guys… I love our culture right now."
Gigi Stoll beat her two professional playing partners, Marissa Steen and Jaye Marie Green, by a stroke.
It's a toasty 94 degrees at Williams-Brice Stadium an hour before kickoff. But unlike last year for USC-UNC, thunderstorm unlikely.
Drafting my fantasy team tonight. (Translation: initiating my team's descent to the league's cellar.)
Serious question - does anyone have any 1964 Curt Flood Topps cards? I'm gonna collect them!! http://t.co/ujdpzMI5WN
Blake Bortles will start tonight in the Jaguars final preseason game. About time! Excited to watch him play. Best rookie QB in my opinion.
Pearl now has talent for 2015-16: Kareem Canty, TJ Dunans, Daniel Purifoy, Horace Spencer, Cinmeon Bowers, Trayvon Reed. Needs a 2-guard.
188 players in NBA last season averaged taking at least 2 three pointers a game
Bruce Pearl has added two Top 75 players in the Class of 2015 (Purifoy, Spencer) and a Top 100 player in 2014 (Reed) in past week.
Volim te, Hrvatska.
Neither Cofield nor Orakpo are on the field going through warm-ups and individual drills, but both have been fighting injuries lately.
Tony Stewart returns to NASCAR this weekend at Atlanta.
But Robert still won't reform Led Zep -- even for a few gigs in NYC, LA and London. C'mon, Bob!
Just waiting for Ole Miss and Boise. http://t.co/dIUCBSQtm3
His reasoning: Whole Foods is a (figurative) meat market, while you can get pork enchiladas and British Tea at Fiesta.
Gigi Stoll birdies par-5 7th, getting up and down from rough near green. Now back to -1.
And also warming up and not likely to play: Hall, Jackson, Garcon and Moss.
Baseball is amazing. You never know what you'll see at the yard. Congratulations to Yusmeiro Petit. Streak ends as Rockies pitcher doubles
Petit gives up a hit (to the pitcher) JUST one batter after breaking the MLB record of 46 consecutive retired. Sports psychology … so crazy.
Also warming up and likely not to play: Lauvao, T.Williams, Lichtensteiger, Chester, Young, Meriweather, Polumbus, Reed, Riley, Amerson...
Those on the field doing the annual pregame not-playing warm-up: Morris, Kerrigan, K.Robinson, Griffin, Hatcher, Jenkins, Roberts, Baker...
Do we know if Ray Rice will be considered a one-time offender under the NFL’s new policy?
Petit gives up a hit (to the pitcher) JUST one batter after breaking the MLB record of 45 consecutive retired. Sports psychology … so crazy.
Auburn is on a roll...Getting 7-footer Trayvon Reed for 2nd semester after landing Danjel Purifoy and Horace Spencer.
Any radio stations been playing "Don't Shoot"?
"If I was her I'd move into the nicest suite in New York City. You can expense it." John Isner on advice to 15-yr-old CiCi Bellis
Trayvon Reed just told me he will attend Elevate Academy in Florida this semester to qualify, then join Auburn in December.
In Stein story he writes that Cousins is the backup C (meaning Plumlee may not receive many minutes if any). Still a lot to be gained 4 him.
Former Maryland signee Trayvon Reed will attend Auburn at the break this year after a semester in junior college.
Yusmeiro Petit has now retired 44 consecutive hitters and is now just one away from tying Mark Buehrle’s major-league record of 45.
Thinking Miley Cyrus pops up anytime now in a USC football toga.
We've had five RBs get 2,000 yards in a season. Will we ever see a receiver get 2,000 yards in a season? And if so, who?
Stoll lipped out eagle putt after hitting 5th in two with great shot out of rough. Made birdie putt to get back to even.
I have an easier time typing "Krzyzewski" than I do typing "Boeheim."
I'm told Sarkisian was "livid" when he was shown Brown's post. Accommodated Brown's wishes to switch to RB. Gave him every chance to play.
Jeff Sanders, who put on last week's WinCo event at Pumpkin Ridge, is in Gigi Stoll"s gallery.
Joan Rivers' publicist denies Julianna Margulies' Emmy dress had anything to do with the comedienne going into cardiac arrest...
Anthony Brown switched from CB to RB this month, has been hurt and out most of camp, was the 5th RB on USC's depth chart.
Anthony Brown deleted posts calling Sarkisian a racist on Instagram and Facebook. Damage already done.
the biggest criticism against David Montgomery is he is "too loyal." We need more people with those flaws.
For those of you who want both the Cavs and TWolves versions, these are now on sale. http://t.co/ipqUPbbKoi
ICYMI earlier: Monmouth will host Division III Wesley College for an exhibition on Nov. 8, six days from the opener at West Virginia.
I caught a little of Kobemania in China last October. It is a frenzy. “It’s harder for me to walk around here than it is in the States.”
Phillies announce Pat Gillick will take over as president in Montgomery's absence.
Unless I missed someone, Jason Hall will be the first true freshman position player to start an opener at Texas since Blake Gideon in '08.
Stoll, by the way, is using an orange and black bag that says BHS on it, for Beaverton High School.
Gigi Stoll missed fairway by a foot on 3rd hole but got nasty lie and made bogey. Now +1 thru 12 holes.
It's a landmark day: The NFL folded under heavy public pressure and backlash.
I get that Goodell will be fawned over by commissioner-lovers for this. He's a PR guy, that's what he is. And he screwed up on Rice. Sorry.
At the risk of stating the obvious, USC really needs this season to start. AK
My only fantasy FB tweet. Wish Yahoo allowed longer team names. Had to end at "Keep Doin Whatcha Do" & left off "Playboy & chase that money"
But sometimes that's how it works--you get to good places by forcing bureaucrats and PR people to move there when they don't want to.
Cutting through the talk: Goodell is reacting far more boldly to BAD PR than he did to the ugliness of what happened in that elevator.
Carroll should have said, "I want to win." I could buy that one ...
Coach Pete Carroll with the quote of the year after NFL fines Seahawks for mini-camp violations: "... I want to do things right."
Mickael Gelabale receiving interest on possible deal w/ FC Barcelona, sources tell RealGM. Some NBA teams planned to watch him in World Cup.
Portland’s NHL bid won’t come via expansion unless Gary Bettman gets real on valuation. Look for distressed franchise to relocate instead.
Gigi Stoll bogeyed 1st, hit beautiful tee shot to 4 feet on par-3 2nd, but lipped out birdie putt. Now even thru 11 holes.
Ray Rice still only got a 2-game punishment and that's not changing. It's always best to get it right the first time.
Josh Selby and Devin Ebanks are now teammates in Israel. Herzliya rolling the dice on both, hoping gamble doesn't backfire.
Goodell shows logic by admitting he messed up the Rice suspension. But why couldn't he see that problem coming months ago?
"confidence is a huge thing. ... It's a hard thing to explain, but it really does make you win or lose sometimes.” — @RogerFederer (via SI)
Food carts at driving range at Portland Classic. http://t.co/WrY2CeJbMR
Seems like Roger Goodell regrets the backlash to Rice's punishment more than the softness of it. Still good they changed the policy.
Sarkisian had no sense after meeting Brown that he felt that way. He did not call him a racist during or after meeting.
Stoll is 4 of 7 on fairways hit, 5 of 9 on GIR, has taken 13 putts. At -1, she's tied for 20th, although it's very early in day.
Sarkisian on Brown: "I had encouraged him to play. I thought he could play. I didn't want him to quit." He was blindsided by "racist" post.
Griffin continued: Love's "been really open about fact that he’s bringing a focus to that end of the floor that maybe he didn’t do before.”
Gigi Stoll makes turn at Portland Classic at -1. Scrambling well, twice getting up and down out of bunkers.
About halfway through Ride Around Shining, a) John Hollinger gets a shoutout and b) Greg Oden brings a teammate some macaroons
Sarkisian on Brown: "It's ridiculous. Any of you guys that know me, ask any of our players. That's the furthest thing from the truth."
I'm basically out on the Simpsons marathon at this point. Reading some of these episode synopses to refresh my memory and they're all boring
Whoops. Nice shot of Shannon Brown, though. http://t.co/l7Vtz5eu8Z
As you've surely heard by now, LT Hutchins, SS Hall and WR Harris are starters on Texas' Week 1 depth chart.
Weren't privy to ask? Aren't you his coach?
USC running back Anthony Brown calls Sarkisian a racist and quits the team. Sarkisian says "Quit honestly I'm shocked."
Sounds like the U.S. is facing a road game Saturday in its opener. Finland journalist says they expect to have 8,000 fans in Bilbao.
I'll never, ever understand why some people feel the need to tear down one sport in order when professing their love for another.
Horacio Muratore of Argentina elected unopposed as the new President of FIBA.
Wolves move into new practice facility will be delayed by months & cost a few extra million for re-design needed to absorb gym sounds
Jazz 3rd point guard this year is going to be a basketball playing guard. Whether Ian Clark or Toure Murry. Ballplayer non traditional PG
