Here’s my picks for today’s NFL action in Week 12 around the...
I'm loving that the Kings are doing well. They have been entertaining. Gotta love Boogie. Also, the win against Portland actually took place in Sacramento.
Marcus Mariota is the best QB in the nation. I think he should win the Heisman in a landslide. I can't wait until he gets to the NFL (probably to Oakland, ouch!). On a personal level, I would rather Oregon finish #2. The 2-3 matchup will play in the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA. We've had a little success there in the past. Go Ducks!
Shaq has said on TNT that he asked for the trade to Miami when the Lakers refused to extend his contract. He wanted to be the highest paid player in the league and they wanted to put their future more in Kobe's hands. I think that situation was mutual. In 2007, Kobe demanded a trade from the Lakers unless they brought in some talent. That's when they made the move for Pau Gasol. So he has asked management to get him talent to play with. Either way, this is 2014. Neither argument should matter. Kobe is old and soon he will be done. Hopefully this is the start of a long drought for the Lakers.
Kentucky looked real nice last night. Their offense was a little frenetic but they made it work. Their defense was top notch. That game said more about Kentucky's potential than it did about Kansas. They need a little time to gel before they hit top gear. Most teams do. Let's take a look at them after 10 games or so.
