OSU HC Believes Buckeyes should still be in CFB Playoff Consideration

Ohio State lost to the Wolverines by a score of 45-23 on Saturday, losing “The Game” for the second consecutive season. The loss may have also ended the team’s chances of making the College Football Playoff as well.

OSU HC Ryan Day

Ohio State, which entered the week as the No. 2 team in the College Football Playoff rankings, must hope for a final stretch of chaos. The Ohio State Buckeyes will conclude the regular season with an 11-1 record, no shot at a conference title, and no chance to enhance their resume.

After the loss, coach Ryan Day was asked if he believes his team should still be considered for the College Football Playoff and he said this,

“Well, I mean, I thought we were in it. We
were fighting there at the end, and
obviously it got out of control down the
stretch. But it wasn’t like we were
outmatched in terms of just overall play, I
don’t think. So yeah, as we get to those
decisions, you have to look at the body of
work and what we’ve done. We’ve got a lot
of good pieces on this team. We came up
short today, but I think if we were able to
get a shot in the top four, we’d be a
dangerous team.”

Earlier in the season, Ohio State defeated 11th-ranked Penn State and 15th-ranked Notre Dame. They won all of their 11 games by at least two touchdowns as well.

With that being said, Georgia, Michigan, and TCU appear to be in the driver’s seat for College Football Playoff berths if they finish the season undefeated. Ohio State, LSU, USC, and Alabama are also contenders but their chances are slim.

Quite frankly, I believe that they have absolutely no case whatsoever. The Buckeyes were 9 point favorites, Michigan’s best player got hurt and they also had the “revenge factor” on their side. One of the worst OSU losses I can remember in my lifetime.

NBA Player Suspended for Last Night’s Actions

NBA Player Suspended for Last Night’s Actions

Joe Dumars, the Executive Vice President and Head of Basketball Operations for the Boston Celtics, made the decision today that Grant Williams, a forward for the Celtics, is being suspended for one game without pay for recklessly making contact with a game official. He also had some choice words for the ref as well.

The incident, which occurred with 8 minutes and 58 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter of Boston’s loss to the Chicago Bulls by a score of 120-102 on October 24 at United Center, resulted in Williams receiving a technical foul and being ejected from the game.

Williams will serve the serve his one game suspension during the Celtics’ home game against the Cleveland Cavaliers this Friday.

Free MLB Pick 7/16/22 Mariners vs Rangers

Even though I realize the Mariners are playing outstanding baseball and that’s why they’ve won 12 straight games, you’re getting a great deal on the Rangers for that very reason.

After giving up four earned runs in his last two starts, Mariners starter Logan Gilbert hasn’t gone past six innings since May.

Based on the advanced statistics and numbers, I would take the Rangers to cover.

THE PICK: RANGERS ML (+118)

Bridges likely to never play again, and rightfully so

Bridges likely to never play again, and rightfully so

Jeff Taylor pictured above

Jeffrey Taylor received a 24-game suspension for domestic violence in 2014, which is the longest in NBA history to this day.

He earned it by doing the following:

“According to the NBA press release, Taylor and the woman got into an argument after a night of heavy drinking, which prompted other hotel guests to summon security.

Then it escalated, so Taylor pushed her into the corridor. She then fell to the ground and hit her head on a different door, causing her to become unconscious.

Taylor also slapped her arm and punched a hole in the wall near his hotel room, according to the press statement he sent.

As reported by the police, the woman received scratches and a bump on her head, but did not seek medical attention.

Miles is in a similar boat, but much worst. This isn’t tied to binge drinking. Also this was his wife, not his girlfriend,

Among other things, he is accused of breaking her nose, wrist, and choking her. (which is a felony itself).

Not to mention, it’s 2022. His case involves his wife posting the photos on social media for the entire world to see.

A disturbing video of his son’s facetime discussion is at the heart of this case as well, and it’s a tough watch to say the least.

The situation for Miles Bridges is far more serious.

Cancel culture wasn’t nearly as prevalent in 2014 as well.

Certainly Miles Bridges will miss the entire 2022-2023 NBA season, and he probably will be in prison instead of the NBA for a pretty long time.

Phillies vs Cardinals Free MLB Pick 7/11/22

Phillies vs Cardinals Free MLB Pick 7/11/22

The Cardinals are looking for a split in this four-game series and I like their chances. In terms of defensive runs saved (-21), Philly is ranked 28th, while the Cards are tied for seventh place in the league (+30).

With a low-scoring game expected, take the better defensive team as a home underdog. After the game, the Phillies will depart to Canada as well. Also, the injury of MVP hopeful Bryce Harper certainly matters too.

THE PICK: STL ML (+105)

Trade talk over NBA star only lasted 20 minutes

By: OutOfSightSports

Trade talk over NBA star only lasted 20 minutes

Trade negotiations between the Atlanta Hawks and Utah Jazz for Rudy Gobert lasted around twenty minutes. Originally, there were rumors the Atlanta Hawks would be acquiring Gobert in a package built around Clint Capela. When push came to shove, the Hawks were not about to throw all Minnesota did to Utah in exchange. The Hawks, still hopeful to acquire disgruntled superstar, Kevin Durant, never really entertained the idea of a trade for Gobert. Capela remains a Hawk despite Minnesota’s rumored interest in him.

The Utah Jazz traded three-time defensive player and all-star, Rudy Gobert, to the Minnesota Timberwolves in twenty minutes proving to be one of the fastest NBA trade negotiations of all time. Three unprotected first-round picks, a pick swap, 2022 22nd-overall pick Walker Kessler along with four other players is what it took to cement the trade to Minnesota for Gobert.

Talks between Atlanta and Minnesota proved to be a rumor that didn’t make sense to onlookers. During his podcast titled “Please Don’t Aggregate This,” Andy Larson of the Salt Lake Tribune said, “From what I hear, the Atlanta conversations about Rudy Gobert took about 20 minutes is all.” Bleacher Report’s host, Jake Fischer, agreed with Larson saying he “never thought those were going very far.”

The Donovan Mitchell Situation: What we know as of now

The Donovan Mitchell Situation: What we know as of now

Mitchell, 25, has been a star since being drafted 13th overall in 2017. Mitchell has averaged 23.9 points, 4.5 assists, 4.2 rebounds, and 1.3 steals throughout his five seasons with the Jazz.

These numbers explain why Mitchell is a prized asset. Past speculation about his future has also generated more interest into the topic. Here is a timeline of what has transpired, who is claiming what, and everything we know up to this point about the situation:

A huge Woj bomb, this helped fuel the speculation even more after the Gobert trade. Will the Jazz rebuild?
Almost all league executives seem to think Spida is on this way out.

Hoop Central is a very solid source, who is virtually never wrong. A must follow on twitter for basketball junkies.
I’m sure letting go of two of his closer friends wasn’t the best of ideas if they want to bring him back.
NBA Beat writer Andy Blarsen believes he may or may not be traded.
Valid point from a valid source.
Nobody really knows for sure.

Game 5 NBA Finals Warriors vs Celtics Preview

6/12/22

Game 5 NBA Finals Warriors vs Celtics Preview

After a 2-2 deadlock in the series, the NBA Finals return to Chase Center on Monday for Game 5. Both the Warriors and the Celtics have not lost back-to-back games this postseason. Even though the series has been decided by double digits in each game — the Warriors’ 10-point victory in Game 4 was the closest so far . With that being said, the series has been much closer than that, as demonstrated by the 2-2 tie right now. As a matter of fact, the Warriors have outscored the Celtics by only one point (422-421) through the first four games of this year’s NBA“` Finals.

Thanks to their Game Four victory Friday, the Warriors have reclaimed home-court advantage in the NBA Finals. The Warriors can and most definitely will take advantage of whatever they can get with three games left in the series and each club two wins away from an NBA Championship, as the Dubs have gone 10-1 at home these playoffs. The series will be determined in the second half if Monday’s Game 5 follows the pattern of the first four. The team that has won the second half of the first four games has won each game of the series. Each of the Warriors’ first four games ended with a third-quarter win, and they have a plus minus of 49 in those quarters, while the Celtics won Games 1 and 3 with overpowering fourth-quarter performances.

This is shaping up to be the biggest game in the history of the Chase Center so far.

Despite a close game, the Warriors were able to pull away late with a 17-3 run to win Game 4 by 10 in TD Garden. Wiggins had a career-high 16 rebounds to go along with 17 points.
Stephen Curry has been unstoppable so far in this series. Since the start of the Finals, he has averaged 34.3 points per game while shooting more than 50% from the field and more than 50% from three-point range. If he continues to play at this level, this will be Curry’s best NBA Finals performance and the third best playoff series of his entire career. With a sore left foot, Curry was able to log a team postseason-high of 41 minutes in Game 4 and had one of the biggest games of his career, which should ease any fears about his ankle.
However, Andrew Wiggins and Kevon Looney have been steady contributors in this series as well, albeit quieter. Jayson Tatum’s All-NBA offense is a dauntingtask for Wiggins. Just as he did in the Western Conference Finals against Luka Doncic, Wiggins is making Tatum earn every bucket he has made this round. Tatum is averaging 22.3 points per game these finals and is shooting a mediocre 34.1 percent from the field, 17 percent less than what he averaged in his first three series of these NBA playoffs. Offensively, Wiggins has carried the Warriors a couple times, particularly early in games. He has been eating the glass this postseason, easily rebounding the basketball better than he ever has in his career, and he had eight straight Warriors points in the first quarter of Friday’s victory.

Wiggins and Looney are each averaging 8.5 rebounds per game in this series, which is tied for the most on the team. Looney has been a constant presence for the Dubs, whether he’s starting or coming off the bench. When it comes to the NBA Finals, no one has a better plus-minus rating than Looney’s (+9.0 per game) because of his consistent postseason play, which has included everything from finishing at the rim to setting screens to rim protection.

When things go wrong for Boston, they always find a way to get back up and play better the next time around. As of this postseason, Boston has gone 7-0 while coming off a loss, and 8-3 away from home. Jaylen Brown and Jaylen Tatum lead the way for the Celtics, each averaging 22.3 points in this series. Additionally, Boston forwards Marcus Smart, Derrick White, and Al Horford have all had their moments during these year’s Finals. Robert Williams III has made an impact on the defensive side of the ball, sending shots away pretty often. When it comes to blocking shots, he’s second to only Kevon Looney among players who play at least 15 minutes each game in this series, with an average plus-minus of (+5.0). The C’s will need to continue to be top road team in postseason to have a chance of winning the championship and that’s exactly what they have done so far.

Dodgers Star Out For Extended Period of Time

6/11/22

By: OOSSports

The Dodgers will be without star pitcher Walker Buehler for an extended period of time.

The team’s No. 1 starter will be out for at least six to eight weeks, after an MRI revealed an elbow strain. There are no plans for surgery, and Buehler is expected to return this season, but that depends on how well he recovers.

Before Saturday’s game, the Dodgers had already placed Buehler on the 15-day injured list.

Buehler left Friday’s start against the Giants after four innings due to elbow discomfort, setting up the MRI for Saturday.

It was yet another setback in what had already been the worst season of his career, with a 4.04 ERA, 1.2 WHIP, and 8.0 strikeouts per nine innings, the lowest of his career. Buehler had just managed to complete the best regular-season of his career last year , finishing fourth in Cy Young Award voting with a 2.20 ERA and 212 strikeouts in 207.2 innings pitched.

The absence of the right-handed pitcher will extend a frustrating season for the Dodgers’ rotation depth. Earlier in the season, the team had been without Clayton Kershaw and Andrew Heaney for a significant  amount of time. However, on Saturday, Kershaw made his return Saturday. Tony Gonsolin (1.58 ERA) and Tyler Anderson (3.07 ERA) have stepped up to keep the team’s rotation competitive, but the pitching staff’s season has not gone as intended.

After a blazing hot start to the season, the Dodgers have dropped four of their last six games. Now, they must overcome yet another obstacle to reclaim their NL West crown.

Week 3 Monday Night Football Free Picks

Week 3 Monday Night Football Free Picks

PHILADELPHIA @ DALLAS | 8:15 PM EDT

At the beginning of the season, everyone and their brother had the Cowboys finishing 1st in the NFC East and the Eagles finishing most likely last. That narrative changed though. After we saw a solid outing by Philly Week 1 against the Falcons, these teams are a little closer than one would think in my eyes. The Eagles fast start was key, being able to bring in a healthy offensive and defensive front was critical, but they aren’t nearly as healthy anymore.

Fletcher Cox, a staple on the Eagles defense for years, has been dealing with an illness this week and the loss of Brandon Graham is not good at all. Not to mention, starting LT Brandon Brooks is out for the week. The Cowboys definitely are not contenders yet, but last week they captured a very resilient win. With this being said, take Dallas -3.5 or -3 if confident.

Final score prediction: Cowboys: 31  Eagles: 27 (58 points total)

Another MNF Free Pick: O 51.5
