With the first pick in the 2006 NFL Draft, the Houston Texans select…

April 29, 2006 at 3:31am By: D.M.B. Posted in D.M.B. Sports Report

...Mario Williams? In one of the biggest draft shockers of all time, the Houston Texans agreed to terms with Mario Williams out of North Carolina St. instead of Heisman Trophy winner Reggie Bush out of USC. This could either be the greatest move in the history of the draft or a bigger blunder than picking Ryan Leaf. (many consider Ryan Leaf to be one of the biggest draft busts ever.)

Next on the clock is the New Orleans Saints. How fast do you think they will get their pick up to the podium? Or how many phone calls are they going to receive for a trade offer?  Tune in at 11am on ESPN to find out.

Scott Spinelli gone?

April 27, 2006 at 6:21pm By: D.M.B. Posted in D.M.B. Sports Report

A couple of the daily rags are reporting that assistant coach Scott Spinelli is leaving Nebraska to become an assistant at Wichita St. I wouldn’t be all upset about it but he’s been the one who’s brought in a lot of our “good” recruits. In reality, he was the only thing keeping Barry Collier here at Nebraska. Barry is gone after this year barring a miracle.

Coach Solich drugged?

April 21, 2006 at 6:22pm By: D.M.B. Posted in D.M.B. Sports Report

In what could turn out just to be a hoax or the weirdest story I have ever heard, there is rumors flying around that Coach Frank Solich of the Ohio Bobcats was drugged during a night out drinking. The much publicized arrest for public intoxication last November earned the former Nebraska head coach a stern reprimand from Ohio University, could have been as a result of a drug called GHB, or more commonly referred to as the “date-rape drug.”

Who would drug the head football coach?  And if it did happen, why would they drug him?  With GHB?

Spring Game

April 17, 2006 at 5:08pm By: D.M.B. Posted in D.M.B. Sports Report

I’m not going to write up on the Spring Game because I think it’s pointless. I’ll only say that the Red won 35-7. Why 57k people would go see a practice is beyond me.  So since I couldn’t care less about the game, give me your thoughts.

Bad baseball

April 13, 2006 at 6:55pm By: D.M.B. Posted in D.M.B. Sports Report

A little more than a week has passed in the ‘06 MLB season and I have to get something off my chest. Why must this be Kansas City Royals country? Why must we be flooded with one of the worst run organization’s in the league?  ESPN 1480 carries Royals games.  FSN and UPN both carry the RSTN (Royals Sports Television Network). Big Sports 590 in Omaha carries the Royals. The only TV station or radio station that dares to be different is 1620 the Zone who carries the Cubs. The lovable 98 year losers.

Why must we be subjected to bad pro baseball in this area?  I would rather NO MLB baseball be carried in this area if it meant the difference between Royals or no Royals. Why can’t this be Cardinals country? Or Twins country? (yes I’m a little bit biased on the Twins because they are my favorite team but anything is better than the Royals) I cringe every time I turn on a KC TV broadcast and Bob Davis, Paul Splittorff, and Fred White give us exciting Kansas City Royals baseball.  Splittorff and White are excellent broadcasters and their talents are severely wasted on the KC Royals.  Denny Matthews and Ryan Lefebvre are behind the mic . Matthews has been with the Royals since their inception in KC in 1969. He has witnessed the Royals go 2872-2983 in their 36 years. One World Series championship in 85. One 100 win season in 1977 and 3 100 loss seasons (all quite recently’02, ‘04, ‘05).  Attendance hasn’t been 2+ million since ‘91 and it was the 3rd lowest turnout to the ballpark last year since the strike in ‘94.

It’s time for better MLB baseball in Lincoln.

Barry Bonds: sham or legend?

April 3, 2006 at 8:18pm By: D.M.B. Posted in D.M.B. Sports Report

My favorite sport, by far, is baseball.  Football is a close second, but baseball is my favorite.  With the MLB season underway last night, there is one person looming over all of baseball. Barry Bonds. The slugger is only 6 home runs away tying Babe Ruth and 47 away from tying the home run king, Hank Aaron. But with the steroid issue at hand (and an investigation about to begin) the over-riding question is, is Barry legit? Let’s get one fact straight, Barry Bonds has never tested positive for steroids. Barry has certainly been tested after baseball instituted their steroid ban over 2 years ago and he has never failed a test. His connections toBalco and Victor Conte are well documented. His body transformation is well documented. But the #1 question is, “does Barry Bonds deserve to be the holder of the home run title?” My answer is a reluctant yes. If Barry did take steroids, he broke no rules.MLB had no testing policy so there for it was “legal” to take performance enhancing products.  MLB benefited greatly by the home run chase of McGwire and Sosa in 98, it brought the game back from their strike in 94. And now they are going after Barry. Unfair I say. Barry may rub people the wrong way and he does have an ample amount of arrogance but there is no denying that he is a great hitter and should be considered one of the greats of all time.

Nebraska should be in the final 4

April 1, 2006 at 10:39pm By: D.M.B. Posted in D.M.B. Sports Report

Nebraska beat Colorado which beat UNC-Willmington which beat George Mason.

Nebraska beat ISU who beat Northern Iowa who beat LSU.

Nebraska beat Northern Colorado who beat Eastern Michigan who beat California who beat UCLA.

Nebraska beat Oklahoma St. who beat Tennessee who beat Florida.

Ok…maybe I’m streching it a little bit.
