Saturday Roundup

I am toying with an idea of doing a roundup on either Saturday or Sunday of the main sports stories.  Let's see what develops.

1)  Robert Griffith III won the Heisman Trophy.  The Baylor QB won 5 of the 6 regions of the country.  The Far West went for runner-up Andrew Luck of Stanford.  For me, he wasn't the best QB in the country.

2)  The Chris Paul trade has been killed for a 2nd time.  This time it wasn't the NBA office that killed it, but the Lakers.  In other news, rumors have the Lakers trading Lamar Odom to the Mavericks for a trade exemption and it looks like the rumored Dwight Howard to the Lakers deal is moving forward.  The Lakers have two years before the clamping down of salaries comes into play, it looks like they are trying to make the most of it.

3)  Ryan Braun tested positive for PEDs during the post-season and the second test came up negative a few weeks later.  So which is it, he cheated the test on the second one, or was it a false positive on the first one?  And does this make baseball's drug testing look like a joke?

4)  The Xavier-Cincinnati basketball game broke out into a fight with less than 10 seconds left.  The Cincinnati coach took his players jerseys away and asked them if they wanted to be on the team, while the Xavier kids called themselves gangstas, said that they were disrespected, and acted like goons.  The best line is from the Cincinnati Coach:  “Toughness is doing the right thing. True toughness, you walk away from it. You take your ass-whipping and go home.”  And that is his own team that he is talking about there. 

5)  Navy took their winning streak to a decade over Army.  I would like nothing better than a victory for the Golden Knights sometime within the next decade.

And a bonus story:  Two elementary school teachers from the same district in New York were arrested for going at it like rabbits at the Bills-Titans game last weekend in the men's bathroom.  The funny thing about this is that the man's wife confirmed that her husband was arrested coming out of the bathroom and that she wasn't the lady that was arrested with him.

I'm glad the Chris Paul trade was killed a second time. The NBA was right when it prevented a richer franchise from plundering a poorer one of its star players AND dumping salary at the same time.

I'm shocked you don't have mention of NDSU's win yesterday. I hope they exact some revenge on GA Southern for them beating my Black Bears yesterday.
I have been doing some roundup posts periodically when posting is slow and I don't have enough from one subject to make a post. Feel free.
I am so sick of the word disrespect.
