College Football season kicks off with Florida vs Miami

Are the Miami Hurricanes back now that Manny Diaz is at the helm? We’ll see tonight as they take on the #8 Florida Gators to open the college football season.

Much of the talk regarding Miami has centered around freshman QB Jarren Williams beating out Tate Martell for the starting job, but the bigger factor may involve the Miami’s lack of experience along the offensive line.

The spread has stayed around Florida -7 leading up to game time. This should be a fun one.

Indians get impressive haul for Trevor Bauer

Opinions about Trevor Bauer are all over the place, but most will agree that he’s a very talented pitcher along with being a knucklehead. The Indians faced an interesting dilemma having Bauer under control through next season while staring at a playoff run this season. They couldn’t give him away, so they would have to hold out for serious value in a trade or hold on to him for the stretch run and playoffs this season.

They got the haul they were looking for, led by Franmil Reyes and Yasiel Puig, two sluggers that can transform the Indians lineup for this season.

Dave Gettleman is the most clueless man in the NFL

How bad can things get in New York? Dave Gettleman comes across as a caricature of a meathead sports executive who can’t seem to wrap his head around analytics and rational player evaluation. He goes by his considerable gut, and may end up making the New York Giants the laughing stock of the NFL.

Last year, Sam Darnold fell int his lap, but he passed and took a running back. This year, Josh Rosen was available for pennies on the dollar, and Gettleman passed again. Dwayne Haskins was available and yet Gettleman wasn’t interested. Oh, and he managed to get rid of Odell Beckham Jr. along the way as well.

Instead, Gettleman fell in love with Daniel Jones and drafted his with the 6th pick, even when he easily could have waited until pick 17. Jones seems like a great kid and a nice player, but there’s no way he’s worthy of the 6th pick in the draft based on his tape. The kid isn’t accurate and he doesn’t handle pressure well.

This pick is a disaster for the Giants, and this once-proud franchise is tuning into a joke.

Do Jon Gruden and Mike Mayock know what they’re doing?

What’s going on in Oakland? Leading up to the draft it sounded like chaos in that building, and then Jon Gruden and Mike Mayock raised eyebrows during the draft. Clelin Ferrell is a very good player, but nobody thought he’d go in the top 10. But the Raiders decided to snag him at pick #4, even with tons of other talent sitting there on the board. Gruden has never been good at managing the draft, but you would think Mayock would have a clue about how to trade down, get more assets, and still get your man.

Only the idiocy of the Giants pushed this down as the top story.
