Check out the podcast as we talk about the Browns losing and why I’m happy about it. The NBA lockout continues and the preseason has been lost will we lose regular season games too. And there’s more turmoil down at Ohio State.

Teams Get Paid to Get Beatdown

To spin off an old Brand Nubian songs, in the first week of the NCAA football season most powerhouse schools don’t play the crème de la crème. Instead they choose to play mid major schools they can pummel. The crazy thing is these schools get paid crazy amount of money to get demolished and some national exposure. For example, Alabama hosted Kent State University and was favored by 39 points and they beat the Golden Flashes by 41. However, sometimes money is the muscle relaxer to a bad beat down. Kent State received $1.2 million to play that game. Nevertheless that wasn’t the only team that raked in big money to get molly whopped. Akron University pulled in a cool $850 thousand from The Ohio State University. Middle Tennessee State who was actually competitive in their game against Purdue only losing by three and got paid a solid $850 thousand to take their talents to Boilermaker country. Montana received $500 thousand, Indiana State $475 thousand, and Chattanooga 450 thousand and were all beat by an average of 31 points. But the biggest money maker was Louisiana Monroe who played Florida State and was paid $1.3 million to get trounced 34-0. So while players aren’t allowed to get, its more than ok for them to get beat down by teams far superior to them. Yup, sounds just like the kind of logic the NCAA would operate by.

Rough Draft

Terrelle Pryor was taken in the supplemental draft by the Oakland Raiders with a 3rd round pick. Pryor going to the Raiders in my opinion could be the worse place he could be. The Raiders haven’t had a stable quarterback since Rich Gannon and considering at any given moment Al Davis could decide he wants someone new in there Pryor may see the field before he’s ready. Unlike most I think Pryor has a chance to be a serviceable quarterback, he’s 6’5 and strong so he would have the ability to stand in the pocket and shrug off tacklers and can elude a pass rush with his speed. The only thing that concerns me is when he throws the ball is looks like he’s trying to guide it instead of just letting it go with confidence. I can’t see him playing any other position, just because he’s big and fast doesn’t mean he can learn another position, and I don’t think he should have to. Groom him and let’s see what kind of quarterback he can be. Hopefully in Oakland he’ll get the time he needs to prepare and will get a fair shot.
