Daly Dose Sports Podcast 12-11-17 – 12-15-17

We released another five podcasts this week, and we have a lot for you!

On Monday, we are talking about a number of surprises that we saw take place in the NFL on Sunday! Every time that we think we have this league figured out, it seems to give us something unexpected!
We saw a classic college football game over the weekend that we hope you didn’t miss, Major League Baseball may have seen a big change in its balance of power, and we saw Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield take a few steps toward showing that he just might be growing up!

Tuesday on the Dose, the Monday Night Football game proved to be just as crazy as the rest of Week 14. NFL players seem to be very concerned about their safety these days, but they need to be aware of who threatens their safety the most.
It has been a memorable college football season, as we get ready for bowl season to begin this weekend, but next season is going to be very fun too. We look at a few of the top players that will be returning.
And we are about a quarter of the way into the NBA season, and we have three teams that have been better than expected!

We take a look at a few college basketball teams that might be worth watching, and we preview the Thursday Night Football game, and whether it will be worth watching.
Plus, we have the sports overreactions of the week! Did the New England Patriots intentionally lose on Monday night? Is Devin Hester a lock for the Hall of Fame? Should the Oklahoma City Thunder fire Billy Donovan? We answer these questions and more on today’s Daly Dose!

NCAA Selection Committee constructs perfect bracket

Well it has taken 77 years, but the NCAA Selection Committee finally got it right.

For the first time in tournament history the NCAA Man’s Division I Basketball brackets were announced and there was not a complaint by a single person.

Pointing out the mistakes of the committee as they put together a 68 team bracket has become as much of a tradition as March Madness itself, but on Sunday that came to a grinding halt.

“They finally did it.” praised ESPN pundit Joe Lunardi. “Syracuse and Tulsa getting in? Monmouth and St. Mary’s being left out. Of course Oregon should be a No. 1 seed, and where else would Virginia be, but right ahead of Michigan State? I can’t believe it, but they finally got it all right.”

Senior college basketball analyst Andy Katz echoed the sentiment.

“Every year it seems like we have problems with the way that this tournament is seeded. I mean let’s face it, there are 68 teams so there is bound to be some disagreements, but this year they finally nailed it. No complaints whatsoever from me.”

CBS basketball commentator Doug Gottleib agreed. “For years we have believed that the committee has their own agenda when seeding these tournaments. But Duke playing UNC-Wilmington in the first round? The chance of Texas vs. Texas A&M or maybe Kentucky against Indiana in the second round? We’ve always thought that these were made for television match-ups. I think it is clear this year that these things just take place and it is all by chance.”

Gottleib continued. “It really is remarkable that they did such a great job. My hat is off to them. I never thought I would see the day that we saw a perfect bracket. But this is it. Next, you’ll be telling me the Chicago Cubs have a chance to win the World Series.”
