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!  

Daly Dose 04-29-20 Winners and losers from the 2020 NFL Draft

This week on the Daly Dose, we have a number of sports birthdays today, and tomorrow is National Bugs Bunny Day, and we think back to his influence on sports.

A friend of the show is hitting it big, and we review the latest installment of The Last Dance, the Michael Jordan documentary.  Sidenote: A friend of ours appeared in Sports Illustrated in a Jordan related article recently. You should check it out here: How Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls inspired the world

Major League Baseball hands down a pathetic punishment, an all-time great is retiring, Tom Brady is fitting in down in Florida better than expected, and we tell you why Jameis Winston might be a perfect fit with the New Orleans Saints. 

Then, we hand out some winners and losers from the 2020 NFL Draft! What do the SEC, the San Francisco 49ers, and pool tables have in common?  

Finally, with Tua Tagovailoa being drafted No 5 by the Miami Dolphins, we countdown the Top 5 winningest left handed quarterbacks in the history of the NFL!

Daly Dose 04-01-20 YouTube video

This week on the Daly Dose, Major League Baseball is willing to do almost anything to have a regular season, UFC fighter Jon Jones is in trouble again, and Tom Brady is going to give trademarking another try. The NFL says that the 2020 NFL Draft is going to take place, and we discuss why that is a good thing. 

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 08-28-19 Our 2019 College Football Preview Part 2

This week on the Daly Dose, the New England Patriots get some scary news, one NFL team is interested in a female kicker, and we explain why people should cut Andrew Luck a break!

Then, we finish up our 019 College Football season preview! Last week, we covered the ACC, Big 12, Big Ten, and even some Independents and small conferences. This week, we take a closer look at the Pac 12. Can the West Coast get back into the national picture? Then, we discuss the Southeastern Conference. Will the Alabama Crimson Tide be the top team yet again? 

Plus, we make our picks for the Heisman Trophy, and even predict who the final four teams will be to make the College Football Playoff!

Daly Dose 06-03-19 The Warriors will themselves to a win

Monday on the Daly Dose, we are recapping all that we learned from the weekend in sports!

The Golden State Warriors somehow steal Game 2 over the Toronto Raptors in the NBA Finals, despite a growing list of injuries and ailments. The NBA proves that they always adhere to the star system, and the Stanley Cup Playoffs could be over soon if something doesn’t change.

Boxing took a big loss in more ways than one this weekend, the French Open made us sad, and the Green Bay Packers suffered their first major injury, but it probably won’t affect them that much. Plus, SEC football is about to get even crazier this season, and that might not be a good thing.

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 02-07-19 Our way too early Super Bowl LIV picks

Thursday on the Daly Dose, Major League Baseball is discussing some new rule changes, but we know better than to believe them. One college football conference looks like the winner of National Signing Day, and a college football program probably got one important decision correct.

Then, we finish up our conversation with two friends of the show, and begin looking forward to next year’s NFL season. Which teams that made the playoffs this year could take a step back? And which teams could make a run in 2019? Plus, we make our way too early picks for Super Bowl LIV!

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?
