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!

Daly Dose #121 The NCAA Sweet 16 Preview

This week on the Daly Dose, Clint discusses why March Madness always seems to live up to expectations, and why we see so many upsets every single year. We look at who has been a little better than we expected, and who has been worse so far in the tournament, and we preview each of the Sweet 16 games.

NFL free agency is now three weeks in, and there are still some big-name players that have been left unsigned. Why is no one touching these top players? We take a look at a bizarre soccer story in Brazil, preview some possible playoff matchups in the NBA, and count down the Top 5 last times that we saw back to back NCAA Basketball National Champions!

The Daly Dose College Football Preview: The Big 12

We now turn our attention to a conference that could be looking to expand and add a few teams to make it a true super conference. Or maybe the Big 12 will collapse completely and go away forever.

Either way.

Big 12

1. Oklahoma Sooners

Predicted finish: 10-2

Baker Mayfield took over the QB position in Norman last year, and took the Sooners all the way to the College Football Playoff with his high-risk gambling pirate style. But then we saw what he did against Clemson in the Orange Bowl. Arrrgh!

2. Oklahoma State Cowboys   

Predicted finish: 9-3

Okie State actually has a chance to contend in this conference, as they return 10 starters from an offense that averaged almost 40 points per game last year. But the Cowboys do also have to play defense. And I think we all know how that usually turns out.

3. TCU Horned Frogs

Predicted finish: 9-3

The Horned Frogs are going to miss talented QB Trevone Boykin. Can Texas A&M transfer Kenny Hill take the reins? Or will he get beat out, cry about it, and transfer again? No seriously, I’m asking.

4. Baylor Bears

Predicted finish: 9-3

The Bears lost some major talent on both sides of the ball, and then Art Briles got fired because his players were quite literally raping and pillaging the Baylor campus. So the win total will probably go down this year, but the crime numbers will drop too.

5. Texas Longhorns

Predicted finish: 8-4   

The team that might stand to benefit the most from Baylor’s slide might be Texas, who has been patching together their roster over the past two seasons. Now they are finally  assembling some talent. So maybe they only lose to Notre Dame by 20 in this year’s opener instead of 50.

6. West Virginia Mountaineers

Predicted finish: 7-5   

The WVU offense has some studs. Skyler Howard, Shelton Gibson, and Daikiel Shorts could compare to former Mountaineer greats Geno Smith, Tavon Austin, and Stedman Bailey. Which means they will put up some big meaningless numbers this year and then get punched in the face in the NFL.

7. Texas Tech Red Raiders

Predicted finish: 6-6   

Texas Tech is like a big budget summer blockbuster movie. Yes, there will be special effects (high powered offense). But there will also be poor acting (no defense). And we ultimately know the outcome: the plot goes nowhere, and we end up with diarrhea from all that butter on the popcorn.

8. Kansas State

Predicted finish: 5-7   

Sure, Bill Snyder is 104 years old, but he has the passion and exuberance of an 87 year old.

9. Iowa State Cyclones

Predicted finish: 4-8

You might look at this pick and think I am down on the Cyclones, but look who’s picking them to double their win total from a year ago! This mostly drunk guy!

10. Kansas Jayhawks   

Predicted finish: 1-11

Aww come on, it isn’t that bad, Jayhawk fans. OK, maybe it is.

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.
