Daly Dose #149 Solving the mysteries in the NFL

This week on the Daly Dose, we are trying to figure out what has already been a very puzzling NFL season! Clint is joined by NFL writer Dillon Brooks and they discuss some surprising MVP candidates, which quarterbacks should be benched, and which teams are actually legitimate contenders.

The NBA is making some changes to their rules, and we are seeing some big name players change teams! Do any of these moves mean that a team will be able to challenge the Golden State Warriors?

We briefly discuss the Major League Baseball playoffs, and what we might expect in the upcoming postseason series.

We are beginning to see some college football teams separate themselves from the pack. We take a look at a few teams that have been even better than expected so far.

And with the college basketball scandal looming, we count down the Top 5 college basketball scandals of all time, and what they each have in common!

Hoping for leniency, Rick Pitino sends prostitutes to FBI office

Just days after basketball coach Rick Pitino was placed on unpaid administrative leave for his involvement in a federal corruption investigation, it seems the former coach is up to his old tricks.

On Monday, Pitino sent three female prostitutes to the FBI offices in New York in hopes of charming the investigators on his case. The sex workers were wearing Louisville basketball jerseys, and little else aside from a sash that said “Free Rick”.

In a phone interview with the Daly Dose, Pitino said : “Fortunately, I’m innocent of all wrongdoing, I never sent any prostitutes. I don’t know any prostitutes. That simply isn’t the way that I do business. The FBI is free to do any sort of investigation on me that they want. They aren’t going to find anything. I have never been involved in any sort of corruption. I have never been involved with any strippers, or hookers. That just isn’t me.”

FBI documents cited two coaches on Louisville’s staff as working with Adidas executive Jim Gatto to funnel $100,000 to five-star recruit Brian Bowen. Last Thursday, ABC News confirmed that Pitino is the “Coach-2” mentioned in the FBI documents as the coach who spoke to Gatto multiple times and “requested” the transaction that allegedly sealed Bowen’s commitment.

Before hanging up, Pitino did have one question for us at the Daly Dose. “Do you know if Daisy went to the FBI offices? Can you check, and have her call me? I might be able to have conjugal visits.”

Daly Dose #148 Our no politics sports show

This week on the Dose, we are already tired of all of the political talk in sports. So, we sidestep the politics, and stick with what we actually know.

Major League Baseball is finally getting interesting, and we take a look at possible postseason matchups. We know that the Cleveland Indians, and the Los Angeles Dodgers will wrap up the top spots in each league, but which other teams can contend?

We respond to a few listener emails, including who won the NBA trade between the New York Knicks and the Oklahoma City Thunder in the Carmelo Anthony deal. Our answers just might surprise you!

We are now about one month into the college football season. Which teams are failing to live up to all of the preseason hype?

And in the NFL, the New York Giants, Seattle Seahawks, and Los Angeles Chargers might be off to a slow start, but we have some good news for them. Meanwhile, the Green Bay Packers, and Los Angeles Rams are off to very good starts, but could be facing trouble down the stretch. We look at the good news and bad news for a number of teams!

Finally, if your favorite NFL team is off to a slow start, we provide you with a ray of hope! Our Daly Dose Top 5 counts down the five times that NFL teams have started the season 0-3, yet still managed to make the playoffs!
