Tua Tagovailoa Suffers Season-Ending Injury

With Alabama up 35-7 and just over three minutes to go in the first half, Alabama starting quarterback suffered a season-ending hip injury. Tua suffered a posterior hip dislocation with an acetabular rim fracture and was flown by helicopter back to Alabama for further evaluation. A lot of comments regarding this injury have already been made, and I hope this piece will help to explain the injury and the recovery facing Tua.

Gio’s NFL Mock Draft 2.0

Welcome to my first mock draft since April! Click here for my first mock draft. A lot, and I mean a lot has changed since May. Some people have completely fallen out of favor and are no longer in my top 100.

There are plenty of teams who have way too many needs to cover in one round, so I apologize in advance for the people asking “Why didn’t you give my team (insert player that won’t fall to said team here).” The draft order that I used in May has changed drastically, but some teams are still around the same pick.

Most people expected the Bengals, Dolphins, and Giants to be picking in the top 10, but I don’t think anyone saw the Falcons being in the same position. The Cleveland Browns are also in this top 10, despite many people’s thoughts that they would make a deep playoff run. I’m sure many changes will occur before my third mock draft in three weeks as well.

This mock draft includes trades. The draft order follows the Monday Night Football Game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Seattle Seahawks and can be found on Tankathon.

The NCAA Has A Scheduling Problem

Every year when it comes to playoff rankings, we talk about the non-conference schedule. While we talk about it being important, we also ignore our own opinions on that when it comes to how we rank and perceive teams when it comes to the playoff rankings. Consistently, we have some teams that are wiling to schedule tough opponents every year, some who are willing to but never as a true road team, and some who refuse. Until we fix the method of scheduling in college football, we are never going to solve this.

Damico’s Depository + Week 10 CFB Game Picks

I had an absolutely atrocious week last week. We’ll leave it at that since not many people saw my picks last week. I’m going to attempt to recover by giving you nine “locks” this week. Just a reminder, I am not a professional better and you shouldn’t bet your life savings on my picks. Anything can happen in football as we saw last week as most of my locks ended up not covering. If I can call myself out for doing well, I gotta be able to admit when I was just wrong.
