Listen: Odell Beckham, Football And Dwayne Askins discussed on CBS Sports Radio
"We come college football playoff three weeks from today. Notre Dame, Clemson followed by Oklahoma, Alabama. It's hard to pick against Alabama. But you know, for the first time they look a little little vulnerable against a great Georgia team. And how did I get a hunch both these games are going to be close to the people expect? Who knows looking forward to that? Bill could not talk me into didn't really try to talk me into any of the early ballgames that I'm just not interested in, but I will be watching at least some of. The army navy game today, by the way, west Virginia's playing Syracuse in the camping ball. You heard Bill mentioned that will Greer who was Heisman candidate not playing Virginia went from a six and a half to a two and a half point favorite over Syracuse. After that one this is becoming more and more than norm in college football that guys are sitting out these bowl games, especially when they're not big games, Dwayne Askins. Frankly, I don't know if I play he's going to be a first round pick. Maybe a high first round pick. I'm a little surprised he's gonna play in the Rose Bowl. Although it is the Rosebowl added deserved Meyers last game. So I get it and don't hold it against him. But I don't blame any player who's likely to be a high draft pick for not playing in a ballgame especially a meaningless bowl game. Like the camping ball. I think it's a very smart move by will Grier. See I don't know how high dripping he's going to be. We'll see. But I don't have a problem with that. And some people are critical with these these players who do that. I am not working for free. It's absurd. That college football players. Don't get paid. Or at the very least aren't able to legally make money off their name signature and things of that nature while the coaches and GM's get paid absurd certain amount of absurd amounts of money. So I have no problem with a player sitting out protecting his business when that's all the and the coaches care about despite popular belief being the other way, sometimes also big news from the NFL. Odell Beckham junior is out. I can to change my picks. What are the rules here? Tom. I picked the giants. Can we take that game out? I mean, I'm a mid season replacement here, but you make the rules. I think okay with it. Yeah. I'm gonna take that game out without Odell Beckham. I little more worried about that game. Odell Beckham is out for their game against the Redskins. He was limited but expected to play, but he did not travel with the team to DC. So if you have Odell Beckham if you start your fantasy football play offs. I haven't been I haven't been all three of my fantasy leagues. But I don't know needed a one league. I only one league I didn't make the playoffs in one league. I'm on a by. So I don't need them. But my Thirdly, I have them and actually in that league. We play fourteen weeks in the regular season. But I make sure you take Odell Beckham your fantasy football lineups because he is not going to play tomorrow and a lucky injuries. I guess it's always the case. It just seems like there's been a lot of big important pieces from both an NFL and fantasy football standpoint. If you're into that. And I love fantasy football fact for the first time ever, I'm doing fantasy football playoff league have never really done before. But I was because I got eliminated one of my fans for boys and like I need a little more fantasy football this year. And I gotta get in the playoff league. So doing that for the first time ever I love fantasy football and fantasy baseball to any who when we come back. Final segment of the program fact or fiction that is next. But I I've at the latest sports update. Which we'll get to in just a second. And then we'll do and we'll do some some factor fiction as well. In fact, or fiction, Tom will ask me questions or gimme comments? And I'll tell you whether they are fact or fiction, and now it's time for the latest sports update. Here's Larry Ridley.."
