Daly Dose 12-11-19 Our five year anniversary

This week on the Daly Dose, we are celebrating the five year anniversary of the Daly Dose Sports Podcast! How have we managed to last this long? We have no idea.

Then we jump into some of the biggest stories this week in sports, the College Football Playoff is set, the Washington Nationals get some good news…but bad news may be coming, the New England Patriots are back to their old tricks, and we have a new heavyweight champion in boxing!

We take a look at a few coaches in the NFL and college football that could be feeling a very hot seat, and could be getting some bad news very soon.

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! 

Daly Dose 11-20-19 Talking sports with Coach Mac

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?

Moving over to the NFL, we discuss the Colin Kaepernick workout, the Myles Garrett suspension, and which team could unseat the New England Patriots. We also discuss the problems without our hometown Denver Broncos, and what we are hoping for going forward. 

We talk about the college basketball scandals, and what the lack of actual punishment is telling us. We also discuss one major change this season that could affect which teams make a run at a title.

Finally, we get Coach Mac’s thoughts on the NBA this season, and look at some of the new contenders and how much the league has changed! 

Daly Dose 11-06-19 What to watch in CBB and the NBA

This week on the Daly Dose, yesterday was National Love Your Red Hair Day, and we take a look at some of the best red haired athletes in history. 

College basketball got started last night and we have already seen a few upsets, and we can expect a new No1 team next week. 

The first college football playoff rankings came out last night. Did the committee botch the rankings?

Last weekend, we saw a couple of college football teams get themselves back into the college football playoff picture, and one college football team is already pulling the plug on their head coach. 

The New England Patriots suffered their first loss of the season, and the Daly Dose I-Team explains why NFL fans should worry about Josh Gordon joining the Seattle Seahawks. 

Then, we take an early look at the college basketball and NBA seasons. Who are the top teams? Who are some of the up and coming teams? What new rules have been instituted this year? We preview a few of the top stories to watch this season in basketball.

This week on the Daly Dose, Thursday is Halloween, and we discuss some of the scariest players in sports history! 

The World Series is heading for a Game 7 tonight after the Washington Nationals beat the Houston Astros last night in Game 6. This series has been so some unpredictable, including one failed attempt to make baseball interesting.

Plus, the NCAA relents, and says athletes can now make money off of their likeness! We have one very important  question for this situation!

Then, we take a look at the top teams in the NBA, college football, and the NBA, and discuss what each of them should be afraid of as their seasons continue!

Daly Dose 10-23-19 Look at this…not that

This week on the Daly Dose, we remember Jackie Robinson, discuss whether or not the Los Angeles Chargers could be moving again, and both the new NBA season and the 2019 World Series are now under way!

One college basketball team has already made history before the season even starts, and our Daly Dose I-team has found the cause of former college football coach Mark Richt’s heart attack!

Then we pivot around the world of sports, looking at both some flattering and unflattering snapshots in MLB, the NBA, NCAA Football, and the NFL! MLB loves to show their home runs, but the postseason always seems to change their focus. The NBA could have a serious fan base problem. College football still has 10 undefeated teams, but we explain why that’s no reason for concern. The, we examine the terrible NFL officiating, and are the New England Patriots not as good as advertised because of their soft schedule? We review these scenarios and more!

Finally, with the Wisconsin Badgers getting beat last weekend after being favored by 30.5 points, we countdown the Top 5 college football upsets of all time by Las Vegas point spread!

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!

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?
