On the bench, freshman Davion Mitchell wore a navy blue T-shirt with “4-14” written across the chest. It’s a reminder, worn on a rotating basis, of one writer’s prediction for Auburn’s record in SEC play this season. In fact, the preseason polls had the Tigers finishing ninth in the league.
But for one hour, I did . I take that to heart. It was a gathering place. It was appointment TV beyond what we knew we were doing. I still get it today. And I will have many of those feelings going into doing these two shows, trust me.
It’s not like, ‘Well, everybody sees the highlights now, we don’t need it.’ That’s not it. By contract, it’s not allowed to be done. Which is a bummer. Now let me just say this. This is a different thing. I think it would still be very popular were it allowed to be done from 7:30 to 8:30 [p.m. ET on NFL Sundays]. Even though, on your phone you just saw at 2 p.m. this play.
That was confirmed by the owner of one NFL team who said Thursday the notion that the league would attempt to strip the Cowboys from Jones is “ridiculous.” The owner said Jones would be subject to paying both sides’ attorney fees, under league rules, if he files and lawsuit and might be fined if he sues.
A different person with knowledge of the league’s inner workings said: “It’s escalating threats. He hasn’t toned down his rhetoric. But there hasn’t been a lawsuit, either.”
Herring: Fact. The stars seem to be aligning really nicely for Steph, who has had an unbelievable season when he actually has been on the court. Harden seemed best positioned to finally win one, but he missed time and the Rockets have finally cooled off. That Steph leads the NBA in offensive box plus-minus is meaningful, since the past six MVP awards have gone to the person who held that distinction.
