Daly Dose 03-14-19 The Coach Mac interview Part 3

Thursday on the Daly Dose, the Baltimore Ravens have been very busy this off-season, are their moves going to pay off? The Kansas City Chiefs make a very surprising move, and the college admission scandal just keeps getting more strange.

We also continue our conversation with basketball coach Russ McKinstry. How much responsibility should LeBron James take for the Los Angeles Lakers struggles? Are the Denver Nuggets capable of challenging the Golden State Warriors? Then, we turn our attention to March Madness! Which conferences are going to be the toughest in the tournament? And which conference seems is really struggling this season?

Daly Dose 02-25-19 A not so happy ending for the Patriots?

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!

Daly Dose 10-02-18 MLB tiebreakers and Mahomes magic

Tuesday on the Dose, the National League postseason is finally set thanks to the season ending tie breakers, as the Milwaukee Brewers win the NL Central and the Los Angeles Dodgers win the NL West. We saw a better than expected Monday Night Football game as the Kansas City Chiefs came back from a 10 point deficit to beat the Denver Broncos on the road. Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes was very impressive.

Then we take a look at some of the biggest winners and losers from the week in college football and the NFL. In NCAA Football, there is just one undefeated team remaining in the Pac 12, one head coach keeps finding ways to win, and Penn State should be worried about more than their play calling! In the NFL we discuss the Patriots getting back on track, a tale of two Thomases, and NFL refs at least got one thing right!

Daly Dose 09-18-18 Winners and losers from the NFL and CFB

Tuesday on the Dose, the New England Patriots are really getting desperate as they make a move for troubled wide receiver Josh Gordon. The Philadelphia Eagles are bringing back quarterback Carson Wentz for Week 3, but are they making the move too soon?

Today, we also look at some of the winners and losers from the weekend in football.  In the NFL, the Kansas City Chiefs offense is rolling, but it is not all good news. Blake Bortles bested Tom Brady, and one head coach hasn’t won a game in over 10 years.

In college football, two conferences took some damaging losses, and one perennial doormat is surprisingly hot!

Daly Dose 09-13-18 Why we aren’t burning our Nike gear

Thursday on the Daly Dose, Russell Westbrook is injured, but Oklahoma City Thunder fans shouldn’t be worried. It could work out for the best. The Buffalo Bills make a move a quarterback for Week 2, and we have some concerns. The Detroit Lions have some internal strife in their locker room. Why are the players upset at their head coach?

Then, we discuss why we are still wearing Nike, and we take a look at a few of the biggest overreactions from the NFL. Should the Cleveland Browns get Baker Mayfield into the lineup? Is Andrew Luck truly back? And did that amazing comeback on Sunday night mean that Aaron Rodgers is now the GOAT?

Daly Dose 08-30-18 Our Daly Dose College Football Preview Part 3

Thursday on the Daly Dose, the Green Bay Packers make Aaron Rodgers the highest paid player in the NFL. There’s no question he deserves the money,  but is it a smart business deal? The New York Jets make a trade and a statement, and the New Orleans Saints just might have life after Drew Brees.

Then we continue our 2018 Daly Dose College Football Preview! Today we look at the Pac 12, and the Southeastern Conference! Who are the contenders? And who will win two of the toughest conferences in the country?

Daly Dose 03-19-18 Our March Madness recap

Monday on the Daly Dose, we are recapping the weekend in sports! March Madness was even crazier than expected as top teams kept falling! We discuss why not all of the upsets made us feel so great.

There was a trade in the NFL that we don’t fully understand, NASCAR saw an odd decision, and the PGA Tour is getting very interesting.

Plus, today is very special national day of the year that brought to mind a few different athletes!

The 2017 Daly Dose College Football Preview: The Pac 12

Pac 12 Conference

The Pac 12 is deep with talent, and there are two or three teams that are capable of contending for a national title. Yet, there is more to this group than just the top teams. The middle of the pack teams are brimming with talent too, and every week is a battle in this conference. Even a lower level team like Cal is dangerous, if you threaten the environment.

Pac-12

North

1. Stanford Cardinal

Predicted finish: 11-1

The biggest question for the Cardinal will be under center, as projected starting quarterback Keller Chryst is coming off of a significant injury. Yet, we shouldn’t underestimate this team, as they return a significant amount of talent on both sides of the ball. And does it really matter who plays quarterback for Stanford with their smash-mouth offensive front? I mean, they made Andrew Luck look good.

2. Washington Huskies

Predicted finish: 11-1

It was a memorable season in 2016 for the Huskies. They rolled through the season, winning 12 games, and making it to the College Football Playoff Semifinal. Sure, they lost 24-7 to Alabama, but this team proved they can play with the big boys, and they return 13 starters in 2017. The lone unit that could be undermanned is the secondary. Good thing the Pac 12 isn’t loaded with quarterbacks that might take advantage of it.

3. Washington State Cougars

Predicted finish: 9-3

Predictably, the Mike Leach-led Cougars will be exciting to watch with senior quarterback Luke Falk throwing the ball all over the field. If the defense line comes together, this could be a very dangerous team. And also just as predictably, the Mike Leach-led special teams will be awful, and cost this team a big game at the worst possible time.

4. Oregon Ducks

Predicted finish: 8-4

The Ducks will be one of the more interesting teams to watch in 2017. Coming off of a disappointing 4-8 season, and the firing of the coaching staff, new coach Willie Taggart will have his hands full. The Oregon defense will be a focal point, as they allowed over 40 points per game last year. They do return eight starters from that unit, but I’m not sure why I am saying that like it’s a good thing.

5. Oregon State Beavers

Predicted finish: 4-8

The Beavers finished 4-8 in 2016, and they look to be improving. Head coach Gary Anderson is working to build a physical rushing offense that can chew up clock, and wear down opponents.  Don’t forget that the Beavers actually beat their in-state rival Oregon for the first time since 2007 last year. Sure it was Oregon’s worst season since the early 1980’s , but just stop dwelling on the negatives for once, will you?

6. California Golden Bears

Predicted finish: 3-9

Cal fans will point at their 2016 season and see the positives in Sonny Dyke’s final season, like the season-finale win over UCLA. Critics will point at the Bears history of mediocrity and laugh, and laugh.

 

South

1. USC Trojans

Predicted finish: 11-1

The Trojans could be a little bit of a mystery this season. Yes, they have Heisman candidate and NFL-bound quarterback Sam Darnold back. Yet, they lost a ton of talent around him, including the bulk of his offensive line. It isn’t all bad news though. It could be good experience for Darnold to get knocked around this year. It will prepare him for his future with the Jets or the Browns.

2. UCLA Bruins

Predicted finish: 11-1

UCLA was a huge disappointment last season, going just 4-8, as quarterback Josh Rosen suffered a shoulder injury and missed significant time. This team should bounce back, with a healthy Rosen in the lineup…that is, if he can get better protection, more consistency from his receivers, and if he can somehow endure the heinous challenge of quarterbacking UCLA while attending some college courses. We all have our crosses to bear.

3. Utah Utes

Predicted finish: 7-5

They may not be the sexiest program in the Pac 12, but the Utes have proven to be the most consistent. All head coach Kyle Whittingham does is keep winning the Pac 12 South. In fact, he has done it six out of the past seven seasons. He won’t do it this year, though. This team has too many holes to fill, and too tough of a schedule. So yeah, they’ll probably do it again.

4. Colorado Buffaloes

Predicted finish: 7-5

The Buffs had a storybook season in 2016, after winning just 10 games in head coach Mike MacIntyre’s previous three seasons, CU won 10 games, made it to the Alamo Bowl, and finished the season ranked in the Top 25. Sure, they got blown out in that Alamo Bowl game 38-8 by Oklahoma State. We never said it was a great storybook. Or even one with a happy ending. It was a story, and someone made a book out of it. Get off our back.

5. Arizona State Sun Devils

Predicted finish: 5-7

The Sun Devils will have some talent. This is a collection of top-ranked recruits. They will play fast, and aggressive. They will look to attack opponents on both sides of the ball. They will also be inexperienced, make silly mistakes, and have to overcome a number of injuries. Oh yeah, and more importantly, they will lose more games than they win.

6. Arizona Wildcats

Predicted finish: 5-7

We’re not saying that head coach Rich Rodriguez is trying to run this program into the ground on purpose. But let’s say he was. It would look pretty similar to what we are currently seeing, wouldn’t it?
