Listen: Cuyler Murray, Dallas Cowboys And Ohio State discussed on Dickerson & James
"My army buddies are trash talking me how this game and for good reason because the odds on favorite to win this. Of course army for some reason this game always rocks. And it's interesting you look at army and what a season they're having to at nine and two. That's just getting underway. Very chilly. Twenty seven degrees aches, I don't know. There's something about this tradition. The history of one hundred and nineteenth time that these teams have met and the president's going to be at the game. So there's all kinds of interesting, I think side notes to this except for because now worth rolling in to bowl season when it comes to college football. And of course, the other big story in college football is three quarterbacks up for the Heisman Trophy to tag of a Loa who's been this tremendous quarterback all season long for Alabama. Is it enough after finishing? With a dismal performance Cuyler Murray put up incredible numbers as a sooner quarterback, but think of Baker Mayfield. And the fact that he won last year is there really a chance of back to back from the same school. We haven't seen that in the past. If you look at some of the history of this. And of course, the guy that I was talking about by the way all season long was Jonathan Taylor heading into the season. The Wisconsin running back had such a huge edge. But ultimately if you look at the money line, not as much of an edge. Really? It's Cuyler Murray. I think that's got the the the best chance to close the deal for the Heisman and strike that crazy pose. If you look at the super books, he is he's he's the two hundred his minus two hundred favourite when the odds were I too was when they first came out Murray plus two twenty five. We're going to crunch those numbers with Brad powers from pregamEcom at the bottom of the hour. Because a lot of people will throw some dough on this. They will and. It's been that kind of a season. Right. So you look at you look at Murray, and hey, they're right. They're they're they're playing to live to fight another day in the college playoffs as is to get the Sooners in Alabama factor here that is a very very big big big big deal. It's something to win the Heisman. Then you can go into the whole thing about looking through the history of Heisman winners and who who's done well and who's fallen off the map Dwayne Haskins is another one who's up for the O S U quarterback. The Ohio State quarterback was a crazy week urban Meyer really shook things up especially at Buckeye nation. But he did in the big ten to because he's out he announced earlier in the week that he was gone. He wasn't coming back as the coach any longer that. He was retiring. And then it makes you think he really retiring for good. So he'll leave Ohio State after the Rose Bowl. With that. Perfect seven and a record against Michigan. Seventy five nine record against everyone else. One national title four big ten titles. And he said part of it is know this is the second time in eight years that he's quit coaching is that his body. Couldn't take the stress that he was applying to it. And that is a true story he has dealt with this since the very very beginning. And he and his wife have talked about it so often. So he is he done with this for real. Or does he somehow come back? A lot of people thought the controversy is probably would send him into this over. Zac Smith and big ten media day in the media scrutiny and how he handled that in three game suspension. But I think part of it really is and maybe that helped caused part of it with the stress, but I think part of the reason without a doubt is just quite simply how whatever caused it is the intensity of what he does what it does to his body that is not healthy. So he is done for now anyway, and that's huge for Ohio State. And it was like an earthquake had just ripped through Columbus, Ohio. When the news was announced. It was almost like I had a pipeline to immediately. My phone started to blow up as I have ties to Ohio State having gone to school in Ohio and have buddies that work, there, etc. A big week in the NFL. We'll talk about that could be the end of the Philadelphia Eagles the Super Bowl champs defending their title. If they lose to the Cowboys. That's an easy prediction. To make it gets harder for them. I can't even imagine that they're going to be in the playoffs. And this could be the big moment. It was the turning point originally for the Dallas Cowboys when they got that momentum and reeled off four straight wins. And now they have a chance to just finish off the Super Bowl champs because Philadelphia after the Cowboys even if they beat the Cowboys and then go into a tie in NFC east, then they've got the Rams in Los Angeles. Then there at the Texans and then they finished with the Redskins. So you tell me do you think that they can win all those four games, regardless. If they don't beat the Dallas Cowboys and their tremendous defense on the offense starting to click with Amari Cooper, as that added element to what they needed there 'cause area had Zeke, Elliot, and it's starting to come back, etc. Then I don't see how they move on. So this could be the end of the end for Philadelphia after. Insatiable end of the year last year, much different stories. They are six and six and if you watch the last game was a little bit of luck in beating the Redskins. They barely beat the New York Giants fairly. And of course, they got crushed by the saints. And despite having some amazing players like running back, Josh Adams or tight end Zach ertz, and some of the numbers that they've been able to put up this year. Or Carson Wentz really finding his rhythm. Again. I think the task is too tall against the Dallas Cowboys. So be to be sure we're gonna be the human scoreboard keep you up to date on what's happening with army and navy, and we're gonna obviously jumped to a few other things as well. I call it the grab bag when we talk about the NBA what's happening on the hardwoods. And what's happening on the ice? Every once in a while we got to throw in some of that hockey talk. And we're starting to see a couple of trends emerge in the NHL. And we'll talk. About that. It's pretty cool, by the way, Seattle has a new NHL team expansion is working in some some of the areas. Like, we saw what happened with Vegas Vegas has exploded. The nights are everywhere you go to any casino, and you will find some peace of nights memorabilia or something you can pick up and Seattle. Now, they've been dying for this. And let's see how it works out for Seattle. But I think they're going to find that they're going to have the interest there for sure in the hockey heads that look at the look to the NHL we're looking at them looking at them to finally get that team. And of course, they do have that team. We're stepping aside, then we're gonna come back with much more here on the show. Kate Seleny NBC sports radio NBC, sports radio dot com.."
