Greg Hardy tells Cowboys he will not be punished for outburst

Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett announced that Greg Hardy will not be punished in any way after the defensive end told Garrett and Cowboys’ owner Jerry Jones that he wouldn’t stand for it.

Hardy was involved in an altercation with his teammates, and with Cowboys special-teams coach Rich Bisaccia on the sidelines of the Dallas game against the New York Giants, after the Giants Dwayne Harris 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown gave New York a 27-20 lead. Hardy slapped the clipboard Bisaccia was holding, which led to the coach shoving him out of the huddle. He continued to have words with teammates Devin Street and Dez Bryant afterward.

In the locker room after the game, Hardy offered several “no comments” for his actions. The Cowboys brought Hardy in on Wednesday to discuss his actions but the meeting did not go as planned.

“We had discussed possibly suspending Greg after his outburst on the sideline of the Giants game.” Garrett announced Wednesday. “But he told us that he wouldn’t stand for it. Then he gave me a wedgie and he threw Mr. Jones onto a bed covered in loaded guns. It was at that point Jerry told him that there would be no punishment whatsoever and we would really like try to sign him to a long term deal. That seemed to calm him down.”

Daly Doses: Thoughts, reflections, and derision from the Mile High City!

Doses

  • The Colorado Rockies mercifully ended their season on Sunday finishing 68-94 and dead last in the National League West.
  • As bad as they were, the Rockies weren’t without a bright spot.
  • Third baseman Nolan Arenado led the league in RBI’s (130) and finished tied for first in the National League for most home runs with 42.
  • Arenado is also the first Colorado player to lead the majors in RBIs since Andres Galarraga drove in 150 in 1996.
  • Arenado, just 24, was named National League Player of the Month for September. In 28 games, Arenado hit .339 (38-for-112) and led the majors with 11 home runs, 32 RBIs and 79 total bases. His 38 hits led the National League, while his .705 slugging percentage ranked second.
  • Which leaves us to play a little game called “Where will Nolan Arrenado end up when the Rockies cut salary and trade him in two or three years?”
  • I’m going to say Tampa Bay. They should have some money laying around.
  • But I suppose Oakland is a possibility too. And Arenado is a California kid.
  • Oh I know.
  • “They would never do that! He is a bright young talent! He is their future!”
  • Tell that to Troy Tulowitzki.
  • Or Dexter Fowler.
  • Or Ubaldo Jimenez.
  • Or Matt Holliday.
  • On Saturday the Air Force Academy, Colorado State, and University of Colorado college football teams were beaten by a combined score of 53-107.
  • Which is kind of funny, because the local media keeps telling us every year how this is finally the year that Colorado and Colorado State are really going to be special.
  • In fact, last week one of the big talking points on Denver sports radio was “When Colorado upsets Oregon should their fans storm the field?”
  • This is the equivalent of me trying to plan how I will accept the Republican Presidential Nomination.
  • Or… you know…Donald Trump planning how to accept it.
  • I understand the limitations that the Air Force Academy has with athletics. And I root for those kids. Getting to play football is the easiest, and honestly most meaningless, part of their day.
  • But when I see programs like Utah and Boise State able to compete with the big boys it makes me wonder why our state schools are so snakebitten.
  • Maybe the Buffs and Rams need to bring back Bill McCartney and Sonny Lubick.
  • Hey, it worked for Kansas State.
  • Bill Snyder is older than Mac and Sonny combined and Kansas State is at least competitve every season.
  • That old vampire clearly feeds on the blood of the youth and he is still going at a high level.
  • I wonder if Peyton Manning has looked into that?

The Daly Dose Sports Big 12 College Football Preview

We now move on to a free preview of the Big 12 Conference. Last year they were shut out of the first ever College Football Playoff. That couldn’t possibly happen again, right?

Big12

Team Predicted finish Outlook
TCU Horned Frogs 12-0 With the return of QB Trevone Boykin and 16 starters, the Horned Frogs have a chance to be even better than last year, and they will most likely be favored in every game that they play. So maybe this year they can actually hold Baylor to less than 60.
Baylor Bears 11-1 Baylor will also be favored in every game as well aside from that matchup with TCU in Fort Worth. So it looks like it all comes down to that Nov. 27th showdown for the Bears. And then it will all come down to Sunday Dec 6th when the CFB Selection Committee submits their final poll with Baylor ranked 5th again.
Oklahoma Sooners 8-4 The Sooners are facing a tough decision on which QB to start. Fans like Baker Mayfield who is a playmaker. The coaching staff likes Trevor Knight who is more of an orthodox pocket passer. The bad news is that making good decisions under pressure is not always Bob Stoops’ strongest suit.
Oklahoma State Cowboys 8-4 Last year the Cowboys fought through a rebuilding year and managed a 7-6 record with very little experience. It was the kind of tough performance that you would expect from head coach Mike Gundy. After all…he is a man. And he is indeed 40.
West Virginia Mountaineers 8-4 The Mountaineers are a model of consistency. They are always tough at home. Their offense is always dangerous. Their head coach is always innovative. Their stadium in Morgantown always smells like burnt couch.
Kansas State Wildcats 7-5 On paper it looks like the Wildcats have just lost too many people to contend in this division. Then again on paper it looks like 75 year old head coach Bill Snyder should be sitting in a chair watching his “stories”.
Texas Longhorns 6-6 Longhorn fans were sick and tired of former head coach Mack Brown losing 3-4 games every year. Well they aren’t losing 3-4 games anymore now, are they?
 

Texas Tech Red Raiders

5-7 Let me guess…the Red Raiders under head coach Kliff Kingsbury will score 30 points a game but will allow 40 points? Yeah, some things just never change.
Iowa State Cyclones 2-10 The bad news is that the Cyclones have only won five games in the past two seasons and they play in a very tough conference. The good news is after this season we will say that they have only won seven games in the past three seasons. But then I’m a “glass half-full” kind of guy.
Kansas Jayhawks 1-11 Jayhawks football fans can complain about how bad they are if they want to but the simple fact is there is no such thing as a Jayhawks football fan. It is a myth like a chupacabra, a leprechaun, or a Charlie Weis diet.

Friday we will release our Independent Preview!

The Daly Dose Sports Big 10 College Football Preview

We now bring you a free preview of the Big 10 Conference! Can Ohio State go back to back? Can Jim Harbaugh make Michigan relevant? Can we get through an entire season without Wisconsin AD Barry Alvarez naming himself to coach another game? We answer those questions and more!

Big-Ten-Teams

Team Predicted finish Outlook
East

Ohio State Buckeyes

12-0 Did head coach Urban Meyer completely revive Ohio State? Did he bring back the Big 10 conference from the dead? Will he be retiring soon to spend more time with his family? The answer to all three questions is most likely “yes”.
Michigan State Spartans 11-1 The Spartans feel like they never get the respect that they deserve simply because their name isn’t Michigan or Ohio State. Well I am picking them to go 11-1 but only because their name is Michigan State.
Penn State Nittany Lions 8-4 Head coach James Franklin did an admirable job of solidifying the Nittany Lions last season but they are probably a year away from really competing for a Big 10 crown. So sorry Penn State fans, but you should just wait until next year to watch any games.
Michigan Wolverines 7-5 Jim Harbaugh comes back to Michigan which is exciting for the Big 10 conference and for Michigan fans. But let’s be honest…we would all rather have his brother John, right?
Maryland Terrapins 6-6 The Terrapins actually beat Penn State and Michigan last year. Okay they weren’t really the strong Penn State and Michigan teams that we traditionally think of but I mean come on…this is Maryland. And this isn’t lacrosse.
Indiana Hoosiers 6-6 If QB Nate Sudfeld can stay healthy, and the defense can hold up, the Hoosiers could give their fans something to half-heartedly watch until basketball season starts.
Rutgers Scarlet Knights 5-7 The Scarlet Knights lost to Michigan State, Nebraska, Ohio State, and Wisconsin last season by a combined score of 180-44 but here at the Daly Dose we are all about keeping it positive this year. I am positive that Rutgers will get pounded by each one of those teams again this year too.
West

Wisconsin Badgers

9-3 Wisconsin returns a number of starters from last year including senior QB Joel Stave but the Badgers are going to be inexperienced on their offensive line. Ironic that Wisconsin is a little thin on big white guys, isn’t it?
Minnesota Golden Gophers 8-4 Minnesota returns some talent this season from a very efficient team that went 8-5 in 2014 and hopes are high. Unfortunately their schedule includes TCU, @Ohio State, and Wisconsin. Dreams dashed.
Nebraska Cornhuskers 8-4 Nebraska won nine or more games in each of Bo Pelini’s seven seasons and he was run out of town by a fan base that is both totally rational and completely realistic. Enter Mike Riley who won nine or more games just four times in 15 seasons at Oregon State. Mike, I’ve got some bad news for you…
Iowa Hawkeyes 7-5 Remember when the Hawkeyes were winning 10 games every season and head coach Kirk Ferentz was one of the hottest prospects in football? I didn’t think so.
Northwestern Wildcats 6-6 I’m betting big money that at some point this year head coach Pat Fitzgerald screams the sentence “maybe you should have spent a little more time practicing and a little less time unionizing!”
Illinois Fighting Illini 6-6 The Fighting Illini allowed 456 yards per game last season. Offensive players on opposing teams are calling their friends and family with start times for the Illinois game this year.
Purdue Boilermakers 3-9 Sorry, Purdue just doesn’t have the playmakers to compete in the Big 10 this season. Or any other season. Or any other conference.
