Daly Dose 10-09-18 Winners and losers from the NFL and CFB

Tuesday on the Dose, the Los Angeles Dodgers and Houston Astros close out their first round playoff opponents. The Boston Red Sox make a statement against the New York Yankees.

In the NBA, the Phoenix Suns make an odd front office move, Drew Brees breaks an all time NFL record, and we have some second guessing going on with the Dallas Cowboys!

Then, we take a look at some of the biggest biggest winners and losers from the weekend in the NFL and college football. Which states made our list in college football? And what side of the list does Houston Texans quarterback DeShaun Watson land?

Daly Dose 09-18-18 Winners and losers from the NFL and CFB

Tuesday on the Dose, the New England Patriots are really getting desperate as they make a move for troubled wide receiver Josh Gordon. The Philadelphia Eagles are bringing back quarterback Carson Wentz for Week 3, but are they making the move too soon?

Today, we also look at some of the winners and losers from the weekend in football.  In the NFL, the Kansas City Chiefs offense is rolling, but it is not all good news. Blake Bortles bested Tom Brady, and one head coach hasn’t won a game in over 10 years.

In college football, two conferences took some damaging losses, and one perennial doormat is surprisingly hot!

Daly Dose 08-27-18 College football is back…sort of

Monday on the Daly Dose, we are looking at what we learned from the weekend in sports!

College football is back…sort of…and it was not a good start for the state of Colorado. Plus, a Top 25 team sustains an injury that could cause them to struggle.

In the NFL, a Super Bowl contender loses a player in a position that cannot afford to lose. Denver Broncos GM John Elway makes an odd move, and NFL defensive players are running out of places to hit players with the ball. The New York Giants have short memories,  the Pittsburgh Steelers are running out of tight ends, and a number of people are taking shots at the NFL!

Daly Dose #147 The LIVE show!

This week on the Dose, we are doing something we have never done! Immediately following the Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennady Golovkin fight, we go live, and record some immediate reaction to the fight. A number of friends stop by to talk about the decision, but we also discusss the NFLcollege football, even the English Premier League. Talking with a few guests, Clint also finds out what it’s like to play football at the Air Force Academy, what it might take to get the Kansas City Chiefs to bench Alex Smith, and what it really feels like to tackle former Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jerome Bettis!

Then, we look at a few NFL teams that have returned to reality in Week 2 of the season, and we count down the Top 5 worst boxing decisions of all time!

Listen here to a very special Daly Dose #147 The LIVE show!

The Daly Dose College Football Preview: The Mountain West Conference 

Next up, we take a look at a conference that isn’t always considered among the elite.

Sure, the SEC, the Pac 12, and the Big 10 get all the attention, but the Mountain West plays second fiddle to no one!

I think it’s pretty obvious that this conference is clearly more like 6th or 7th fiddle.

Mountain West Conference

Mountain Division

1. Boise State Broncos    

Predicted finish: 10-2   

Boise State went just 9-4 last season, including back to back losses at home to New Mexico and Air Force. But I expect the Broncos to bounce back this year, much like the ducks that bounce off of their blue field, thinking it is water.

2. Air Force Falcons

Predicted finish: 9-3

The Falcons should be very competitive, as they return 14 starters from a team that went 8-6, and made it to the Mountain West Conference Championship game. Air Force will be led by running back Timothy McVeigh, who scored 13 touchdowns in 2015, and is in no way related to the Oklahoma City bomber. We’re pretty sure.

3. Colorado State Rams

Predicted finish: 7-5   

The Rams will be playing their final season in Hughes Stadium this year, before moving to their new facility, and head coach Mike Bobo is hoping that every seat will be filled this season to pay tribute to the teams of the past. Based on the history of CSU going .500 for the most part, I’d say the stadium should only be half full.

4. Wyoming Cowboys   

Predicted finish: 7-5   

The Cowboys finished 2-10 last year under second year head coach Craig Bohl. But Bohl knows what he’s doing, and has proven it by winning three national championships when he was at North Dakota State. So Wyoming fans just need to be patient. I mean, it isn’t like there’s anything else to do in Wyoming anyway.

5. Utah State Aggies

Predicted finish: 6-6

The Aggies will see a number of changes this season, including new coordinators on both sides of the ball. And a number of new players will be getting playing time this year. And the schedule will be significantly easier this year. So this is really a year of transition for Utah State. Except for the whole being a middle of the pack team in a middle of the pack conference. That doesn’t seem to be changing anytime soon.

6. New Mexico Lobos

Predicted finish: 4-8   

Somehow Bob Davies managed to get the Lobos to actually win seven games and reach a Bowl Game last year. Quite frankly, we aren’t sure if he has sold his soul to the Dark Lord himself or what, but the Lobos could be bowl bound again this year. Nevermind eternal damnation, New Mexico would like to go to the New Mexico Bowl again!

West Division

1. San Diego State Aztecs   

Predicted finish: 11-1

The Aztecs went 11-3 last year, winning the MWC Championship, and the Hawaii Bowl. And with 14 returning starters they are primed to be even better this season. If they can get past an early date with California, and not trip up in conference, there is a chance they could find themselves playing in…gasp!…the…Arizona Bowl!

2. Nevada Wolfpack    

Predicted finish: 9-3   

Nevada had the most proficient offense in the country when they ran the Pistol back in 2005. Since then, they have slowly been taking steps backward each year. And last season, they averaged just 164.5 passing yards per game. Is Jeff Fisher coaching this offense?

3. San Jose State Spartans   

Predicted finish: 7-5

The Spartans are hanging their hopes this season on returning starting senior quarterback Kenny Potter, who threw for nearly 2,000 yards and 15 touchdowns last year. But just so we’re clear, Potter is six foot two and a whopping 208 pounds. So San Jose State is hitching their wagon to a kid that makes Steph Curry look like The Rock.

4. UNLV Runnin Rebels

Predicted finish: 6-6   

Head coach Tony Sanchez did an amazing job changing the Rebs from doormat to a high energy team that is capable of scoring points. Unfortunately the UNLV defense allows opponents to score quicker than a Vegas call girl, and without the STDs!

5. Fresno State Bulldogs

Predicted finish: 4-8

The Fresno State defense allowed 446 yards and 38 points per game last year. So seeing the Bulldogs on the schedule is kind of like getting a date with a Kardashian. You aren’t going to have to work that hard, and I think we all know how the night is going to end.

6. Hawaii Rainbow Warriors       

Predicted finish: 2-10

The Rainbow Warriors go to Ann Arbor, Michigan, and are even playing Cal-Berkeley in Sydney, Australia, because just traveling from Hawaii to the West Coast wasn’t challenging enough. They will be travelling nearly 47 thousand miles this year. I guarantee they will sleep through at least one game due to jet lag.
