10 Questions–Football (NFL Week 14)

This is my new series “10 Questions” that I will be doing ideally every week! Dylan joins me this week. There will be a football and a basketball one each week. Hope you enjoy and let me know if you want to see anything else!

 

    1. Which bowl before the new year will be the best game?
      1. Jason– USC vs. Ohio State. Two teams that believed they were worthy to be in the 4th spot in the CFP. Now they get to square off! This could be the final game for Sam Darnold in a Trojan uniform… As for JK Dobbins on the Buckeyes side, this could be a game to have momentum rolling into his sophomore season. I’m rolling with Darnold and the Trojans in a PHENOMENAL game!
      2. Dylan– The Famous Idaho Potato Bowl. This is not a debate. This should be close- it’s a Pick-Em game at some places. Future NFL QB Josh Allen will be slinging it against the Chippewas of Central Michigan on a blue field. What could be better?
    2. Who should be the Heisman Trophy Winner?

 

  • Jason- Baker Mayfield. He has been the only consistent force and the only guy to truly will his team to victory. Dan, a member of the Sportz Sermon, would argue there would not be too much of a drop off with Kyler Murray at the helm, but I can’t get behind it. Lamar Jackson and Bryce Love do not have the wins as Dylan also mentioned, so it has to be Baker.

 

      1. Dylan- Baker Mayfield. Every other playoff team has a top 6 defense. Oklahoma does not. Baker Mayfield carried this team to the playoff behind 4340 yards, 46 total TDs, and only 5 INTs. Saquon Barkley fell off after September and Stanford and Louisville weren’t good enough for Bryce Love or Lamar Jackson to win.
    1. Which January 1st bowl will be the best?

 

  • Jason- Georgia vs. Oklahoma. I had to go with the 2-3 matchup. Jake Fromm and Nick Chubb will have to get going FAST in order to keep up with Baker Mayfield and the high-flying Sooners offense. Georgia’s defense will be the X-Factor though. If they can slow down Baker, Georgia will come out on top. If not, the Bulldogs will be on the field A LOT trying to slow him down.

 

      1. Dylan- Alabama vs. Clemson. It’s definitely between the two playoff games, but these teams match up once again and it should be another thriller.
    1. What team exceeded your expectations?

 

  • Jason- Miami. I was very shocked to see the season they had. I thought Clemson and Florida State would be the two dominant forces. Obviously, we know what FSU did, but Miami did not disappoint. Great season by Coach Richt and the Miami Hurricanes.

 

      1. Dylan- Georgia. They are so balanced and have a great offense and defense. They were so consistent on both sides of the ball all year long and are led by a freshman QB who only had 5 picks on the season! We knew Georgia would be good, but not playoff good.
    1. What team underwhelmed this season?

 

  • Jason- Oklahoma State. Florida State is the obvious pick, but I knew Dylan would roll with them. Oklahoma State had college football playoff aspirations going into the season and now are not even in a New Year’s Six bowl. I can’t comprehend how Mike Gundy got a raise and extension after that disappointment. Don’t get me wrong, Gundy is a fantastic coach, I just do not understand the timing.

 

      1. Dylan- There are plenty of teams to pick from, but I have to go with Florida State. They were projected to go to the playoff preseason but lost Deondre Francois in game 1.  It just went downhill from there, and now Jimbo Fisher is gone. What a slide for the Seminoles.
    1. Who’s the best team in the NFC?

 

  • Jason- The Eagles. The Rams and Vikings are not too far off though. My only concern with the Eagles is that they could crumble in big games. We saw it against the Seahawks and it’s reason to be concerned in the playoffs. But for now, I’m still rolling with Philly.

 

      1. Dylan- It’s still the Eagles. They were just a few big plays away from being right in that Sunday night game against the Seahawks. However, the NFC is very tight (all playoff teams range from 10-2 to 8-4) so the hottest team around playoff team will be the one to make it to the Super Bowl.
    1. What are your thoughts on the Gronk suspension?

 

  • Jason- It does not make sense. The consistency in the NFL with the suspensions is just non-existent. I cannot justify this hit, that is one of the dirtiest plays in the last 5 years, as being better than two guys chasing each other for a chain. It just is not consistent at all. It should have been a 4 game suspension, and then at best appealed down to 2 games. Crabtree and Talib started at 2 and got reduced to 1… They need to give us some kind of benchmark that accurately shows how these suspensions are given.

 

      1. Dylan- It was fair. Gronk deserved it. I believe him when he says he doesn’t stand for these things. Gronk is a good guy overall. But he let his emotions get the best of him. A one-game suspension is a fair punishment.
    1. Has the Steelers-Bengals rivalry gone too far?

 

  • Jason- Not yet. It is getting close. I understand it’s football, but that goes to a certain extent. Antonio Brown’s comments after the game, “Karma”, is not okay and they need to monitor this. Retaliation is already beginning and it needs to be put to an end.

 

      1. Dylan- No, it’s football. Everyone who had an illegal hit was properly punished. Everyone knows the consequences of a dirty hit, if they want to do it it’s their choice.
    1. Are the Chargers legit?

 

  • Jason- No. They are good enough to compete in the sorry AFC West, but not past that. They are clearly the worst of the 4 division winners, if they win it, and would not advance past the Divisional round even if they hit their stride. The offense is playing well, but they have had too many issues over the last year and a half for me to be comfortable.

 

      1. Dylan- Yes they are. They finally figured out how to win close games and dominated their last 3. Their defense has only given up over 21 points once over the last 7 weeks and Phillip Rivers is catching fire. The Chargers will win the AFC West.
    1. Can the Jags offense take them far enough with the amazing defense?

 

  • Jason- The Jaguars are good enough to go to the AFC championship… just not this year. They are too young. They have the 2nd most talent in the AFC. The inexperience will catch up to them in the playoffs, but this could be the beginning of a dynasty. I don’t want to hear the hate on Bortles. He is definitely not a top 10 QB, but he has proved this season he is a good enough QB to get them there. This is just one year early for a Jaguars run in the playoffs. Divisional round at best.

 

    1. Dylan- The Jags are definitely a playoff team and might even win a game in the playoffs with how bad the bottom 4 seeds in the AFC might be. To say they are real contenders to come out of the AFC is a joke though. They have losses to the Jets and Cardinals and are 1-2 vs. 8-4 or better teams. Not to mention, Blake Bortles has seen snowfall one time in his life. Imagine him traveling to Pittsburgh or New England for a playoff game.

10 Questions–Basketball 11/30-12/6

This is my new series “10 Questions” that I will be doing ideally every week! There will be a football and a basketball one each week. Hope you enjoy and let me know if you want to see anything else!

 

  1. What’s next for the Ball family?

 

Lonzo will keep doing what he’s doing with the Lakers. The latest development with LiAngelo will not alter his status. For the other brothers, obviously, LiAngelo is most affected. According to Lavar, he will not be transferring to another school, so that begs the question as to what his other options are? Well, he can go overseas and play for a living in Europe. He could also train here with his own people and get ready for the draft. The only issue with that is that he was only a 3-star prospect, so he was not as highly touted as some people think. He will have to improve tremendously in order to have a legitimate chance to get drafted. Mitchell Robinson is also not going to college and preparing for the draft, but the difference is he was a 5-star and a top center in his class. For LaMelo, his eligibility is definitely in question. The Ball’s will have to prove he did not receive any compensation from Big Baller Brand, but more importantly from his signature shoe. He is also helping set up “pop-up shops” with Lavar, so with all the money and deals swirling around him, they will have to prove his eligibility. If he is eligible the plan, as of now, is for LaMelo to still attend UCLA.

2. Which Arizona team is legit?

 

 

Who knows at this point? We do know they have the talent to run the table. Allonzo Trier and Deandre Ayton are top 25 players in the nation and they have good surrounding pieces. The confusing part of the Wildcats is just consistency. They are coming off a huge win over the #7 team in the country in the Texas A&M Aggies. Only Allonzo Trier only took 7 shots and 7 points. Yet, Dusan Ristic had 13 points and was a big reason Arizona stayed in the game. On the flipside, when the Wildcats played NC State and lost in the 1st round of the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament, Trier was on fire. He had 27 points and 5 rebounds. Ristic had 11 points and 6 rebounds, so not a bad game but still was not as dominant. We know Ayton will be the leader of the team, but why is Trier not producing in wins? That’s the confusing part. Arizona will still be an elite 8 team come March, but it’s definitely a storyline that needs to be watched.

3. What’s the ceiling for the Michigan State Spartans?

 

 

Michigan State comes in 7-1 and their only loss coming to the #1 team in the country Duke. As conference play begins, they routed Nebraska and got by Rutgers. This team has some ironing out to do, but this might be the most talented team in East Lansing since the infamous Flintstones. Jaren Jackson is a stud defensively and is finding his role in the offense. Miles Bridges is a superstar and one of the most fun players to watch in college basketball. Cassius Winston and Nick Ward being two of the most underrated players in the country, is a reason the Spartans are a legitimate contender to the Blue Devils and Jayhawks come tournament time. They could win the title.

4. How big is the gap between Duke and everyone else?

 

 

Every team goes through growing pains this early in the season. We’ve seen it with Arizona, Kentucky, Michigan State, Notre Dame and others. What’s the difference with Duke then? They find ways to win. Look at the Texas game… they did not play well in that and were down by 16 at one point. The difference is three people that are unlike any other in college basketball. Marvin Bagley III. Grayson Allen. Mike Krzyzewski. Bagley is the best freshman in the country and can take over games. Grayson Allen is the best senior in the country and has four years of success, heartbreak and growing pains to use as a base. Coach Krzyzewski is the best coach in college basketball. All of those three things add up as to why Duke is far and ahead the best team in college basketball.

5. What college basketball game are you most excited for this week?

 

 

Oklahoma vs. USC. Trae Young is leading Oklahoma with 28.7 points per game and a win over USC could be what Boomer Sooner needs to get rolling going into conference play. USC has extremely high expectations on them and this game will be a big one to help them move up the rankings if they can take down the Sooners.

6. Which player surprised the most so far?

 

 

Aaron Gordon. Who expected this? Aaron has had multiple 40 point games already and is surprising everyone. His points average is up 7 points and is shooting a better percentage. The Magic got off to a hot start and a lot of that is due to Gordon. The Magic might have found a true gem in the draft that just took some time to develop.

7. What to make of all the injuries?

 

 

Gordon Hayward, D’Angelo Russell, Zach Lavine, Derrick Rose, Nikola Jokic, Paul Millsap, Danilo Gallinari, Blake Griffin, Mike Conley, Hassan Whiteside, Jabari Parker, Anthony Davis, Kristaps Porzingis, Markelle Fultz, Jonathan Isaac, Kawhi Leonard, Rodney Hood, John Wall, Stephen Curry, Devin Booker… That list is a list of better than average players who have missed a significant amount of time. I probably missed a few as well… The injuries really have piled up and depleted some teams AKA Clippers. When these guys get back, the league will only get better.

8. Are the Rockets the best team in the West?

 

The Rockets are 7-0 since Chris Paul returned, and they’ve led by as many as 20 points in each of those seven wins… they have been unstoppable. CP3 and Harden are gelling and the team is forming around them. D’Antoni’s system is now in its 2nd year and coming together. The Rockets are finally putting pieces in place to rival the Warriors… They need one more addition and it doesn’t necessarily have to be a star but they just need one more solid piece to truly compete with the Warriors.

9. Who won the Pacers-Thunder trade looking back?

 

I don’t think either team won or lost. It was a great trade for both teams. I was one of the big believers in the Pacers got swindled. But looking back, both teams got what they needed. The Thunder got Paul George, which put them in the race for the West. Oladipo and Sabonis were not going to get them there. The Thunder have crunch time issues, but they wouldn’t be in crunch time without PG-13. The Pacers got youth and scorers. Sabonis is in his 2nd year in the NBA and Oladipo is a scoring machine. He is averaging more points than Paul George did for the Pacers. I know it’s early, but Oladipo could be an instrumental part of the return to greatness in Indiana. Both teams got better and are in a good position.

10. Is Bradley Beal enough to keep the Wizards competitive?

 

 

Bradley Beal DESTROYED the Trail Blazers Tuesday night and dropped 51. The night before Beal and the Wizards got DESTROYED by the Jazz and lost by 47. So which Beal is the real one and can he get the Wizards going? Well, we knew Beal needed to pick it up when John Wall got hurt and was sidelined for two weeks. I don’t think we should expect to see 50+ points from him a game, but 25-35 a night isn’t unrealistic. He was the #3 pick in the draft for the reason, and it’s now or never for him to fulfill that potential and keep the Wizards in the top 5 while Wall is sidelined.

NBA Week 5

Biggest Takeaway in the Atlantic Division

Dylan- The Knicks are going back to normal and the Sixers are looking great

Dan- The Nets are starting to play like people expected them to.

Jason- Lonzo played well against the Warriors and that was one of the most complete games the team has played this year.

Dan- The Warriors “death lineup” has looked a lot worse from prior years. I know it’s early, but I don’t think it will be a breeze in the playoffs.

Biggest Takeaway in the Southwest Division

Jason- The Spurs should be worried about Kawhi… this is more serious than it looks on the surface.

Dylan- The Rockets keep getting better and might give the Warriors a real run for their money in the playoffs

Dan- Harden would get my vote for MVP right now.

Biggest Takeaway in the Northwest Division

Jason- Will Barton took over the game against the Bulls… that has to be a positive for the Nuggets with so much negativity in the last few days.

Dylan- Paul Millsap’s injury is going to be huge going forward for the Nuggets as they try to stay in the playoff race

Dan- Very solid week for the Jazz. Donovan Mitchell is balling.

NBA Week 5

Biggest Takeaway in the Atlantic Division

Jason- Kyrie Irving is playing like the 3rd best player in the league. (He’s not, just right now he looks like it)

Dan- If Tim Hardaway Jr can keep playing like this, the New York might’ve found another piece of the puzzle.

Zach- Ben Simmons might already be the best young star in the NBA…through 17 games.

Biggest Takeaway in the Central Division

Jason- The Pistons are beginning to come back to earth. They are finally cooling off.

Dan- Great week for the Cavs. Make Lebron take over.

Zach- The Pacers are one of the most exciting teams to watch. They play unselfish and play for each other.

Biggest Takeaway in the Southeast Division

Jason- The combo of Dragic and Waiters PLUS Whiteside should make the Heat competitive with the Raptors and Wizards.

Dan- Kemba and Howard have played great together these past three games. We’ll see if they can keep it up.

Zach- The Magic are finally returning to reality.

Biggest Takeaway in the Pacific Division

Jason- I’m writing this after the Nuggets game on Sunday… This was the Zo and Randle we Laker fans have been dying for. Personally, I start Randle and let Kuz and Clarkson DESTROY benches.

Dan- What does it take to beat the Warriors? Three guys with double doubles and three guys with 20+ points. Good luck!

Zach- TJ Warren should be in contention for Most Improved Player.

Biggest Takeaway in the Southwest Division

Jason- The Mavericks need to turn this around… call me crazy but DSJ will get tired of losing FAST.

Dan- Very solid week for the Mavs, beating the leading MVP candidate, almost ending Boston’s losing streak, and picking up another win against Memphis. It looks like when Barnes plays well, the team plays well.

Zach- The Grizzlies need to turn their season around after losing 6 straight games.

Biggest Takeaway in the Northwest Division

Jason- The Thunder finally looked legit against the Warriors Wednesday night. If they play like this, the Western Conference Finals will be one heck of a series.

Dan- IF the Thunder play that well in a 7 game series, then they could win the Finals, but I don’t see a way they can play like that every night.

Zach- The Thunder finally proved that they are a legitimate Finals contender and can beat anybody.

Player of the Week

Jason- Joel Embiid

Dan- Tim Hardaway Jr

Zach- Russell Westbrook

Game of the Week

Jason- Pistons @ Timberwolves

Dan- Celtics @ Mavericks

Zach- Warriors @ Thunder

Bold Prediction

Jason- The Lakers get the #8 seed in the playoffs

Dan- The Cavs go on a 12 game winning streak.

Zach- The Pacers get the #5 seed in the playoffs.

NCAAM Takeaways Week 1

Biggest Takeaway in the SEC

Jason- Collin Sexton’s playmaking explosive play brings an excitement around Alabama basketball they haven’t seen since the Antonio McDyess days in Tuscaloosa.

Dan- Kentucky needs to shoot much better from behind the arch if they want something big. Knox cant do it all.

Zach- Kevin Knox played an outstanding game and was the best player on the floor vs. Kansas. His combination of shooting, rebounding, and defending has proven why he was a top ranked player in High School. He is their difference maker moving forward.

 

Biggest Takeaway in the Pac-12

Jason- UCLA took Central Arkansas to OT… like they need more headlines

Dan- Arizona has one of the best duos in the country in Trier and Ayton.

Zach- Allonzo Trier with back-to-back 30+ point games…someone wants to be POY.

 

Biggest Takeaway in the ACC

Jason- I was waiting for Trevon Duval, Marvin Bagley, Gary Trent Jr. or Wendell Carter to take over… but instead it was Grayson Allen, the senior, to come thru and power them to a win against MSU.

Dan- Notre Dame has relied on the 3 for the past 4 years and have been successful. They will need to figure out a way to shoot better.

Zach- Grayson Allen is the best player in College Basketball right now and should be the favorite to win POY. He carried that team and hit huge shots while MBIII was out.

 

Biggest Takeaway in the Big 12

Jason- Kansas doesn’t have any star freshman, but Coach Self has got vets in Malik Newman and Devonte Graham who are just as good if not better.

Dan- I loved how Kansas played against Kentucky with four guys in double figures, but Self must not be confident in his bench having all 5 starters play 32 minutes or more.

Zach- I really like Malik Newman at PG for Kansas. They picked up a huge win vs. Kentucky and showed that they are a balanced team with tons of playmakers.

 

Biggest Takeaway in the Big 10

Jason- Jaren Jackson and Miles Bridges are both superstars… This is the best team in college basketball down the stretch.

Dan- There’s a good chance we just saw the national championship game played early in the season. Both teams look like the best college basketball has to offer.

Zach- Jaren Jackson really impressed against Duke. His shooting adds a whole new dimension to his game. IU fans…it will take awhile for Archie Miller to change the culture. Justin Smith, Devonte Green, and Al Durham have showed lots of promise.

 

Biggest Takeaway in the Big East

Jason- Xavier vs Villanova should be a shootout this year… both teams are clicking early.

Dan- Mills Bridges had one bad and one good game this week, and NOVA will feed off of his production.

Zach- Trevon Bluiett is a special player. He will lead the X to be a scary team down the stretch.

 

Bold Prediction for the Season

Dan: Grayson Allen leads the nation in scoring.

Jason: Indiana finishes with a losing record.

Zach: Trevon Bluiett will be a finalist for Naismith Player of the Year.

 

Player of the Week

Dan: Grayson Allen

Jason: Grayson Allen

Zach: Grayson Allen

 

Surprise Player of the Week

Dan: Egor Koulechov

Jason: Jaren Jackson Jr.

Zach: Jaren Jackson Jr.

 

Game of the Week

Dan: Duke vs Michigan State

Jason: Duke vs Michigan State

Zach: Duke vs. Michigan State

NBA Week 4

Biggest Takeaway in the Atlantic Division

Jason- This is the best division right now… all 5 teams would be in the playoffs if it ended today.

Dan- Where was this defense by Kyrie in last year’s finals.

Zach- The Celtics are looking like they will be the next dynasty after the Warriors era ends. (Kanter and Ntilikina…don’t mess with The King)

Biggest Takeaway in the Central Division

Jason- Eric Bledsoe and Malcolm Brogdon are a top backcourt in the league.

Dan- Detroit is playing very good basketball right now. We’ll see if they can keep it up.

Zach- The Cavs need IT back to return to their NBA Finals status.

Biggest Takeaway in the Southeast Division

Jason- I like the Dwight Howard signing in Charlotte, and Batum played his first game Wednesday, so don’t worry yet about the Hornets.

Dan- Washington is the only team worth a glance in this division right now.

Zach- The Magic are starting to cool down after their hot start.

Biggest Takeaway in the Pacific Division

Jason- The Lakers are getting production from a different guy every night… they look GOOD, but against the 76ers, Embiid was just too dominant.

Dan- Golden State’s winning streak could last awhile.

Zach- Jordan Clarkson is playing like the best player on the Lakers right now.

Biggest Takeaway in the Southwest Division

Jason- The Grizzlies, after their hot start, have fallen to 7-7… This is what we expected. What we didn’t was the resurgence of Tyreke Evans.

Dan- I feel like Harden’s play is greatly overlooked right now.

Zach- Dennis Smith Jr is a future superstar.

Biggest Takeaway in the Northwest Division

Jason- The Thunder need Melo to play like USA Melo… Russell and PG are the main options

Dan- KAT is a future top 3 player in the league.

Zach- Paul George needs to get more involved if the Thunder want to make a run in the Playoffs.

Player of the Week

Jason- Joel Embiid

Dan- Joel Embiid

Zach- LeBron James

Game of the Week

Bold Prediction
