Daly Dose #140 Our Fifty States Tour Part 2

This week on the Daly Dose, we continue our trek across the nation, with the second half of our 50 States Tour!

We continue touring these United States, looking at the best athletes, the greatest sports moments, and the most disappointing moments for each state!

Last week in Part 1, we went from Alabama to Missouri.

In Part 2, we start back up again in Montana, we stop in each state, all the way through to Wyoming. What state has produced NBA rivals from the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors? What Ohio State athlete ruined the day of an infamous dictator? Are the Dallas Cowboys the source of the worst moment in Texas sports history? And is the state of Pennsylvania the greatest producer of NFL quartebacks in history?

We answer all of these questions, and much, much more on our 50 States Tour finale!

This week on the Daly Dose Sports Podcast, we are talking about the MLB postseason. In the American League, the Toronto Blue Jays swept the Texas Rangers, and the Cleveland Indians surprised the Boston Red Sox. And we have some tight competition in the National League, as the Los Angeles Dodgers battle the Washington Nationals, and the Chicago Cubs try to get past the San Francisco Giants.

We also hand out a few MLB awards, now that the regular season is over. Who are the MVPs? Managers of the Year? Rookies of the Year? And we give our choice for the Cy Young Award.

In the National Football League we are now starting to see certain teams take a step forward while others begin to fall behind. And a certain quarterbackis finally going to make some news on the field.

And this week in college football, we have some questions about what is going on at Texas A&M after their win over the Tennessee Volunteers.

The Daly Dose Sports College Football Top 10

Our first full weekend of college football kicks off tonight. Check out our Daly Dose Sports College Football Top 10 to see just who we think are the top teams in the country.

At least until they lose.

And then we will want nothing to do with them.

1. Alabama Crimson Tide

Next game: Sept 3rd vs USC (Arlington, TX)

Oh we know. Bama doesn’t have a quarterback, but since when has that stemmed the Tide? Nick Saban has found a way to reload year after year, and continue winning, without great play under center. Odd that the Prince of Darkness would waste his time coaching college football, instead of battling God, or angels, or Santa Claus or something. But to each their own.

2. Oklahoma Sooners    

Next game: Sept 3rd vs Houston

If Oklahoma can get by Houston and Ohio State early then we could see “Big Game” Bob Stoops back in another big game at season’s end.  Of course, Big Game Bob doesn’t usually win those big games, but at least he has that cool nickname that isn’t the least bit ironic.

3. Florida State Seminoles    

Next game: Sept 5th vs. Ole Miss (Orlando, FL)

The Noles have a talented group returning, including RB Dalvin Cook, but the schedule is nasty. Out of conference dates with Ole Miss and Florida, plus a solid ACC schedule, will mean that unlike the grades their players receive… Florida State will have to earn this.

4. LSU Tigers

Next game: Sept 3rd vs Wisconsin (Green Bay, WI)

One year after nearly getting fired, Les Miles returns with veteran talent and high expectations.  Can the “Mad Hatter” live up to those lofty goals? Does he even know about them? Does he even know where he is right now? Probably not.

5. Stanford Cardinal   

Next game: Sept 2nd vs Kansas State   

It will be the Pac 12’s mission to stop Christian McCaffrey. The do everything back returns after setting the NCAA record for yardage, but Stanford did lose some of their OL and QB Kevin Hogan. Can a white RB lead a top team to a national championship in 2016? And will the world actually come to an end if he does?

6. Michigan Wolverines    

Next game: Sept 3rd vs Hawaii

Michigan returns as much talent as anyone in the Big 10, and Jim Harbaugh is at his best in his first three or four seasons. The defense could be excellent and while there are questions at QB, let’s not forget this guy went to the Super Bowl with Colin freaking Kaepernick. No really.

7. UCLA Bruins   

Next game: Sept 3rd at Texas A&M

Sophomore QB Josh Rosen looks like he could be special. And while the Bruins have to replace some key players, he could be enough to carry them. Unless this offensive line can’t protect him. Because then they will be carrying him. Off the field.

8. Ohio State Buckeyes

Next game: Sept 3rd vs Bowling Green

The Buckeyes lost a ton of NFL talent, but they still have JT Barrett which gives hope to the people in Columbus.  But when you realize that Barrett couldn’t beat out Cardale Jones a year ago…that hope may start to fade.

9. Tennessee Volunteers   

Next game: Sept 3rd vs Appalachian State

For the first time since Phillip Fulmer was run out of town, the Vols legitimately have a chance to challenge in the SEC, and have a shot in the national playoff picture. Sure, they’ll probably drop a game along the way that they shouldn’t, but it wouldn’t be Tennessee if they didn’t.

10. Clemson Tigers

Next game:

Yes, we realize that Clemson is in most everyone’s top five, but we don’t trust the Tigers defense, and truth be told, we aren’t sure that Barney Fife Dabo Swinney has another big season in him.

The Daly Dose Sports SEC College Football Preview

This is it. The big one. The Southeastern Conference- the greatest conference in college football. No conference in the country dominates quite like the SEC and no fan base in the country takes itself quite so seriously. I mean, this is a conference that actually chants “SEC! SEC!” when their conference teams beat teams from other (lesser) conferences.

I realize that many of the SEC fans might not take too kindly to a Daly Dose type preview just as they wouldn’t take too kindly to someone bringing up the fact that they haven’t won the National Championship for two years in a row now.

But I am not even going to bring that up.

And neither should you.

SEC

Team Predicted finish Outlook
East

Missouri Tigers

9-3 You might say I’m crazy picking Missouri to win the SEC East but I notice you didn’t say anything when I picked them to win the East for the past two years, did you? Can I prove that I picked them? Can you prove that I didn’t?
Georgia Bulldogs 9-3 Georgia has the most talent in the division but they will most likely lose a game or two to a team that no one saw coming. Well…except for Bulldog fans who are pretty much convinced that they are going to lose every week no matter the opponent.
Tennessee Volunteers 8-4 The Volunteers return a significant amount of talent and expectations are high in Knoxville. But high expectations are not always met in Knoxville, are they Mr. Manning?
Florida Gators 7-5 The Gators pulled the plug on the Will Muschamp experiment and have hired former Colorado State head coach Jim McIlwain. Florida should be in good hands eventually. As long as they don’t schedule Air Force.
South Carolina Gamecocks 6-6 Steve Spurrier’s Gamecocks started off hot last year at 3-1 before losing five of their final eight. It could signal the beginning of the end for the legendary coach as they will most likely struggle again this season. Or maybe he just wants to remind the local fans of how things used to be before he got there.
Kentucky Wildcats 4-8 Under head coach Mark Stoops the Wildcats have really started to bring in some big time recruits and the tide in football is slowly turning. Of course they aren’t the elite players that the basketball program gets but the fact is that John Calipari still pays better.
Vanderbilt Commodores 4-8 Vanderbilt has a quiet reputation of having some of the most attractive coeds in the stands on game day. And it’s a good thing because you aren’t going to want to watch what their team is doing out on the playing field.
West

Auburn Tigers

11-1 The Tigers allowed 27 points per game in 2014 so head coach Gus Malzahn went and got former Florida head coach Will Muschamp to revive the defense. Muschamp has a history of building aggressive, dominant defenses. But I’m telling you- do not let Muschamp near that offense. I saw what he did at Florida and he will screw it up. I don’t care if you bring back Cam Newton and Bo Jackson, it will be broken. You hear me Gus-Gus? I’m not joking.
Alabama Crimson Tide 10-2 With all of their losses to the NFL the Crimson Tide might actually struggle a little this season. But I know how crazy their fan base is, so I am a little afraid to say that they might lose a couple of games here. Wait, what am I worried about? There are no pictures in this article. They won’t know what I’m even talking about.
Ole Miss Rebels 9-3 The Rebels still have a ton of talent returning and if things break right they could contend for the SEC West. Of course they did lose three year starting quarterback Bo Wallace. So they won’t have as many costly interceptions. And that should help.
LSU Tigers 8-4 For head coach Les Miles this season will come down to what his quarterback does. The Tigers always seem to have better players than anyone else they just can’t seem to find quarterbacks. I mean this is a program that actually won with JaMarcus Russell. Or despite him. Whatever.
Arkansas Razorbacks 6-6 The Razorbacks are going to be a very tough team. The problem for them is that they just have such a difficult schedule. Head coach Bret Beliema has done a great job of assembling a physical and efficient team down in Fayetteville. So ignore for a second that he looks like an adult version of Butthead and just enjoy the ride.
Texas A&M Aggies 6-6 Tired of his defensive struggles head coach Kevin Sumlin went and got LSU defensive coordinator John Chavis. And it wasn’t cheap. Chavis will cost the Aggies $1.7 million dollars per season. Big deal. Johnny Manziel’s parents can pay for him.
Mississippi State Bulldogs 6-6 Sure the Bulldogs return super stud QB Dak Prescott but with the loss of so many starters and playing in such a tough division it looks like Mississippi State could be back at the bottom again. Sometimes it’s nice to have things get back to normal.
