We’re writing about anything other than another dumbass Jake Paul fight in this week’s SSM.
Manny Machado, got himself the bag Eleven for 350, waive all those green flags Staying with the Padres, not going anywhere Sending him a DM now to ask if he will share
Crazy week in basketball, college and the pros Sixers and the Celtics is the first place that we’ll go Jayson Tatum hit a dagger with 1.3 left Embiid’s shot went in, but late, 70 foot heft
Earlier this week, Kings and Clippers scored a bunch Went to two OTs, almost played ’til brunch Three hundred fifty-one points were scored between the two Kings won in a thriller, Clippers were subdued
In the college game, Iowa just did it all Huge comeback for both teams, hero basketball The men came back from 13 with 1:34 left Caitlin Clark a buzzer beater, Indiana effed
We are living in a post Super Bowl/current NBA All-Star Weekend era, which makes SSM a little more of a wild card these days.
A very special birthday, happened on Friday A guy who played a little ball while in the NBA Baseball not so much, but brave enough to try Michael Jordan’s 60, makes me want to cry
Tiger made a cut this week, the Genesis Open He won’t win the event though, dry spell won’t be broken Was able to walk all four days, a good physical sign Maybe a few more tournaments to get things back in line
Arizona/Florida, batting cages pop Pitchers running to first base, off the mound they hop Hope springs eternal, everybody has a chance Spring Training has started, baseball fans will dance
Speaking of Spring Training, Jacob deGrom is back Hurt after about an hour, got right back on track When the guy is healthy he’s as good as it gets But if he breathes a certain way his body’s on the fritz
Rough week for Purdue, on the basketball floor Former number one has lost three of their last four Top ranking in college hoops seems to be a curse Crimson Tide lost this week too, put the top dogs in a hearse
Tonight’s the night, college football fans. We finally made it to the National Title between Georgia and TCU.
You can do all of the research you want; look up both team’s DVOA, OF+, BYOB, anything you want. You could drown yourself in numbers until you punch yourself in the eye and get a TCU colored purple eye and bleed Georgia red.
Or, you could just read our breakdown below.
Look at him, just look at that face. Try and be sad looking at those jowls.
For those of you who live under a rock, this is Georgia’s mascot UGA.
UGA has been with the team since 1956, and there is no logical reason to explain how Georgia hasn’t won every single National Championship since then.
UGA is also a very good boy.
TCU Horned Frogs
This thing is a…horned frog.
We love weird here, and this creature to the right surely falls under that tree.
It’s hard not to imagine this thing being born like that scene in Game of Thrones when the Red Witch gave birth to a spirit or whatever.
Really hard to put these two up against one another.
On one hand, you have an adorable puppers who has never done anything wrong. On the other, you’ve got an atypical amphibian who has hypnotic powers. Truly impossible to choose.
Taking all of that into consideration, and allowing our research and analytics department run through the data provided; we’ve been told that it appears Georgia is going to win the National Championship.
The only thing better than the food during Thanksgiving week is the sports. Feast week in college basketball, rivalry week in college football, and more, all in this week’s Sunday State of Mind.
Feast week brings the upsets, in college basketball Early in the season, and number one did fall Friday night the Cyclones upset UNC Iowa State resumé building early victory
After all these years, feeling like big brother Recently there seems to be a bigger, better, other Two years in a row now, and they’re feeling great Two straight wins for Michigan over Ohio State
A rare win for the Raiders, and even better yet Josh Jacobs set all the records that ever could be set Over 300 yards between rushing and receiving Every time he touched the ball, defenders he was leaving
A NBA homecoming, loving all around Ben Simmons came back to play in his old stomping grounds His favorite fans in Philly, I’m sure it felt so warm He had a double double so at least he did perform
It’s a cold hard fact that the sports week is coming to an end. We review in this week’s SSM.
Let’s start with the world’s game, AKA jogo bonito The World Cup is finally back, a fact you cannot veto Always great to see the best footballers, smooth like butter The only question left; do you say it Qatar or Qatar?
Cowboys and the Vikings, game of the week potential Result of this game is without question consequential Thought it would be a good one, battle of some studs Cowboys blew them out, Vikings may be duds
Patriots and Jets, setting football back Decades with this one, neither team on track Pats won on a walk off, a punt return touchdown Jets punted 10 times, offense full of clowns
It is time we talk about the best NBA team These guys just come out every night with a head full of steam They’ve won six straight, are very hot, doing some crazy things Our current favorite team is the Sacramento Kings
A brutal crash and burn for Tennessee football Big tumble for a team that was just standing so tall Lost their starting quarterback, and the game by 25 Any playoff chances for them are no longer alive
We had the last sports equinox of the year this week. That and more in our latest SSM.
World Series is over, new kings have been crowned Astros win another one, and are parade bound No trash can drama this time, at least no rumors yet If you were to wager though, might not be a bad bet
Some major programs going down in college football Alabama lost again, Tennessee also did fall Clemson also lost to an unranked Notre Dame This part of the football season never comes up lame
We got vintage Tom Brady against the LA Rams Still trying to beat the notion that the Bucs are shams Come back win, fourth quarter drive, TB played the right cards Also became the first QB with 100k yards
Other end of the spectrum, one guy just getting started Justin Fields running the ball at a level uncharted Broke the rushing record for a QB in a game One hundred seventy-eight yards, left the field aflame
The biggest story of the week, what else can we say The Nets made the right move by keeping Kyrie at bay Terrible post, terrible week, he doesn’t seem to care The constant act this guy gives us is starting to wear
Liz Truss, the new/former UK Prime Minister, has resigned after a 44-day rollercoaster ride leading Great Britain’s government.
Truss’ short reign as leader sure sounded like a smooth, exiting time in the UK. However, all good things must come to an end. With the major announcement this morning, Truss joins some of the greatest/shortest leadership occupancies in sports.
5. Lane Kiffin, Tennessee Volunteers
Look at how happy the Lane Train was in Knoxville!
Kiffin is one of the longer tenured head coaches on our list; lasting an entire season with the Volunteers, going 7-6 in 2009.
4. Magic Johnson, Los Angeles Lakers
After becoming one of the greatest Lakers of all time on the court, why wouldn’t Magic want to lead The Lake Show as head coach?
