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!

Then, we are joined by long time basketball coach Russ McKinstry to get his thoughts on a number of the biggest stories in sports. Does an eight team playoff make more sense? Why is college football in the West so down this year? Can anyone manage to knock off Alabama this year? We answer these and more today on the Dose!

NCAA Football: Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game-Auburn vs Clemson

Bama fans can’t put a finger on it but for some reason they really like Clemson’s Hunter Renfrow

The Alabama Crimson Tide found a way to outlast the No. 1 Clemson Tigers last night in the College Football National Championship game 45-40 in Glendale Arizona.

And while dedicated Tide fans are basking in the glory of their fourth title in seven years they also found themselves enjoying the play of Clemson wide receiver Hunter Renfrow.


Renfrow was electric on Monday night catching seven passes for 88 yards and two touchdowns.

“I’ll tell you what.” said longtime Bama fan Cleetus Crenshaw “that boy can play on my team any time. I ain’t quite sure what it is about him…he seems like a coaches kid or somethin. But boy he is just as gritty and gutty a player as I seen this year. Roll Tide!”

“He may not be that fast or athletic.” Crenshaw went on despite the fact that Renfrow runs a 4.55 40 yard dash. “But he just seems smarter than those other boys out there. He just one of those lunch bucket types that works harder than everyone else. I really do like him. Roll Tide!”

What about Bama tight end OJ Howard who caught five passes of his own for 208 yards and two touchdowns?

“Well yeah, I like him too cause he’s wearing the Crimson, but it’s a little different because he’s just so athletic and natuarally gifted. Roll Tide!”

This seems to be yet another southern mystery that may never be solved.

Who are the top 5 college football teams in the country? Don’t take the word of some coaches that have other things to do on Saturday The Daly Dose has you covered! Here are the Top 5 teams in college football today.

Team/Record Last game/Next game Outlook

1. Ohio State 2-0

Last week: 1

Last game: Beat Hawaii 38-0

Next game: Sat. vs. Northern Illinois

The Buckeyes trounced poor Hawaii on Saturday. You won’t really need to watch this #1 column for a few weeks as the Buckeyes now play no one even remotely decent until October.

2. Michigan State 2-0

Last week: Unranked

Last game: Beat Oregon 31-28

Next game: Sat. @Air Force

The Spartans beat Oregon and jumped into our Top 5 this week…mostly as a big thank you for saving us from seeing the Ducks get thumped in another Championship game.

3. TCU 2-0

Last week: 3

Last game: Beat Stephen F Austin 70-7

Next Game: Sat. vs. SMU

The Horned Frogs finally showed some offense, granted it was against Stephen F Austin…but come on are they really that different from any other Big 12 defense?

4. Alabama 2-0

Last week: 4

Last game: Beat Middle Tennessee State 37-10

Next game: Sat. vs. #15 Ole Miss

Alabama’s head coach Nick Saban appears to be very angry at only being ranked #4 in the Daly Dose Top 5. Or maybe that’s just how he always looks.

5. Baylor 1-0

Last week: 5

Last game: Beat Lamar 66-31

Next game: Sat. vs. Rice

The Bears knocked off a national doughnut chain last week but this week they will really get a test with the always dangerous Rice Owls.
