Daly Dose 12-04-19 Previewing the CFB conference championships

This week on the Daly Dose, we remember the fallacy of athletic protective cups, discuss a number of things that we have learned over the past week in sports, and quickly preview the upcoming college football conference title games!

What did we learn from the Ohio State vs Michigan game, and from the Iron Bowl? What did we learn from the Dallas Cowboys loss on Thanksgiving? We saw one NFL quarterback’s era possibly begin on Sunday, but did we see another one’s end? Should the New England Patriots be concerned about their recent struggles? In the NBA, we learned about a defensive stopper that we didn’t know existed, and one former player can’t be happy about it. 

We preview the upcoming college football conference championship games, and how they are going to impact the College Football Playoff that will be announced on Sunday!

Finally, we saw history in college football last weekend, as Jim Harbaugh became the first coach to lose his first five games in the Ohio State vs. Michigan series. Today, our Daly Dose Top 5 counts down five other firsts that Harbaugh has accomplished in his amazing career!

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

The New England Patriots are facing a brand new scandal, and it could have some long term implications.

The Houston Rockets seem to have the Golden State Warriors number so far in the regular season. Could that be a sign of things to come in the playoffs?

And with the NCAA tournament now less than three weeks away, we could be witnessing a new regular season champion in the Big 12, and what in the world is wrong with the Pac 12? We have some theories!

Houston Rockets looking to acquire new scapegoat

The Houston Rockets have had quite the successful offseason so far, and they are looking to make it even better.

After finishing the 2016-2017 NBA season with a 55-27 record and qualified for the postseason as a No. 3 seed. They would eventually lose to the San Antonio Spurs in six games in the Western Conference Semifinals.

Knowing that they needed to improve if they were going to make any headway in the ultra-competitive Western Conference, the Rockets went out and lured former Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul to a five year deal worth over $21 million dollars.

Then, they showed that they are not afraid to spend some serious money ,when they extended starting guard James Harden’s current deal. Houston gave Harden the biggest contract extension in NBA history keeping him in a Rockets uniform through the 2022-23 season. The deal could be worth $228 million dollars.

With their backcourt fortified, the Rockets then turned their attention to making one more very important roster move. They need to find a new scapegoat.

The Daly Dose was able to speak with Rockets general manager Daryl Morey and he explained his plan.

“We really like what we were able to do in signing Chris and extending James, but the fact is that if this all goes sideways, we are going to need someone to blame. A player like Carmelo Anthony would really fit that need.” Morey told the Dose. “He is a big enough name, that it looks like we are trying to create the newest superteam, but let’s face it, he also has a shaky reputation. We could bring him in, and if everything goes bas, we can just pin the entire thing on him being such a ballhog. That seems like that might be the kind of perfect fit that we need.”

Morey also stated that this type of deal is hardly new. “Look at the San Antonio Spurs. They have LaMarcus Aldridge. And n Cleveland, they have Kyle Korver, Kevin Love, pretty much anyone not named LeBron James, really. This is hardly a new strategy.”
