Daly Dose 08-05-20 What we have learned from the return of sports so far

This week on the Daly Dose, it is the anniversary of American Olympian Jesse Owens winning gold at the 1936 Olympic games in Berlin. We discuss the insane pressure that he must have faced. 

The XFL finds some help from an unlikely source, and a group of college football players is making some demands, but they may not have thought them through completely. 

Then, we are examining some of the things that we have already learned from the return of sports in America so far. We look at why so many people in the American sports media seem to be against sports returning. We discuss why many seem to be cheering for another sports shutdown. 

Major League Baseball has returned, and we learned that there are certain approved ways of “breaking the rules”. Plus, we were reminded of a very important item about the game of baseball!

We also learned that the NBA could have some problems on the horizon, and NBA defenses clearly need some serious work.

College football conferences are making schedule changes, and we are pretty sure that we know why. And the NHL has proven to be pretty exciting so far…at least for some fans. 

Finally, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers stated that he believes his days in Green Bay are numbered. Today, we countdown the Top 5 teams where he could end up, if he leaves the Packers!

This week on the Daly Dose, we talk with longtime high school basketball coach Russ McKinstry about some of the biggest stories in sports today!

Starting in college football, did Alabama coach Nick Saban make a mistake by having QB Tua Tagovailoa in the game, when he was injured? What mistake did Baylor make in the loss against Oklahoma? Which teams are the true contenders as the regular season winds down?

Daly Dose 10-09-19 Our NFL ¼ season report

This week on the Daly Dose, we discuss the positive effects of bullying, the Major League Baseball Playoffs are heating up, college football saw some twists and turns last week, and we are watching the NBA scramble to stay out of politics for a change. 

Then, we take a closer look at the 2019 NFL season. What have we learned so far? Which teams have been pleasant surprises? Which teams have been the biggest disappointments? We make our early predictions for Most Valuable Player, Rookie of the Year, and Coach of the Year, and we take a look at the top teams in the NFL right now.

Finally, we discuss the rule changes in the NFL, and how they affect the passing game, and we count down the Top 5 fastest NFL quarterbacks to throw 200 touchdowns! Are any of today’s young passers on track to make this list someday?

Daly Dose 09-25-19 NFL players that threw their careers away

This week on the Daly Dose, the NBA says they are going to crack down on tampering, but we aren’t sure their consequences are that unforgiving. The Kansas Jayhawks basketball program may be in big trouble, but it probably won’t affect them this season. The New England Patriots cut troubled wide receiver Antonio Brown, and he now says he is going back to school. We were able to run down a transcript of the classes he is going to be taking.

Then we take a quick look at the Major League Baseball playoffs that are going to be starting soon, and preview some early possible matchups. 

College football and the NFL seasons are rolling along, and we take a look at some winners and losers from this past weekend!

Daly Dose 09-18-19 Early CFB and NFL overreactions

This week on the Daly Dose, the New York Giants are benching Eli Manning, Drew Brees is hurt, Jalen Ramsey wants out of Jacksonville, and a young man gets some very bad news from the University of Tennessee. Plus, we reveal the source of our own personal insomnia!

Then, we take a look at some very early sports media overreactions to both college and pro football. Is the SEC overrated? Has the Pac 12 already missed out on the College Football Playoff? Are NFL coaches being gutsy by going for two point conversions in late game situations? Are the New England Patriots finally going to be the first team to go 19-0? We answer these questions and many more!

Finally, last week we saw Las Vegas sports books set the Patriots as nearly a 20 point favorite over the Miami Dolphins, but was that the biggest NFL point spread ever? Our Daly Dose Top 5 counts down five times Vegas gave even less respect to the underdogs!

Daly Dose 09-11-19 Our 2019 NFL Preview Part 2

This week on the Daly Dose, we briefly recap the first full weekend of football, as both college football and the NFL seasons are now underway! 

Then, we conclude our 2019 National Football League preview, as we look at each team and discuss who will come out on top of each division! A long time friend of the show stops by, and we jump into the AFC South. With all of the recent changes in that division, who will come out on top? The NFC South is consistently one of the most difficult divisions to predict. Can the New Orleans Saints remain on top?

We make our way to the AFC West, and discuss how our hometown Denver Broncos will do, and try to predict who will win one of the toughest divisions in the league. The NFC West looks to be top heavy with the Los Angeles Rams leading the way, but could another team sneak up and surprise them?

Finally, we finish our preview, by making our way too early predictions for Super Bowl 54!
