Riverhounds- the Hounds went to Nashville Saturday night and came away with a 0-0 draw. But with that draw, the Hounds locked up a Playoff spot. now, the Hounds had Memphis 901 tonight on the road and that ended ?? . the hounds are now needing their next 6 matches for collecting points for seeding purposes and chances at a Home Playoff Game.
PGA Tour— in the Young 19-20 season, this is the Third Tournament coming upon. And the only way to watch is on Golf Network really. The Greenbrier , Sanderson Farms open and this weekend is the Safeway Open at Silverado Resort and Spa in Napa Valley . The players and times haven’t been released yet, but don’t expect a ton of big names.
Pirates- thank god that there is only 6 games left and we can stop watching the train wreck that is the Bucs.. Complete disgusting news about Felipe Vazquez. Should have traded when had the chance but that is hind-site for ya. I believe that the whole damn organization needs blown up, but you have to start at the top, but I don’t see that happening .
MLB- Yanks, Twins, Stroes, Indians, WC, with Rays and A’s Battling for the second WC. For the AL, As for the NL, Braves, Cards, and Dodgers, with Brewers and Cubs WC but the Nets still in the hunt. The Bucs can play spoiler maybe.
Penguins- the Pens are 1-3 in the Preseason so far with 2 games left, one with the Wings and One with the Sabers both at home. Then the regular season starts October 3 rd with the Sabers at home. Coach Sully praises this years team and is very optimistic. We will do some more digging and have a better breakdown next week.
Pitt- Played PSU 2 Saturdays ago, Put up one hell of a game, the Panthers came to play. One bad coaching call of a Field Goal that was Missed on the goal line with 5 mins to play. Then Pitt got the ball back and moved downfield with 2 mins left to play and stalled out with 3 plays to the end zone from the 25 . Then this past Saturday , Pitt went up big on UCF in the first, and continuing the second . Then gave up 31 unanswered points in second half. Pitt, then had to come back with their final drive and called the “Pitt Special “ trick play with Pickett receiving the TD after a handoff reverse. The week the Blue Hens of Delaware come to Heinz Field.
PSU- Took the win over Pitt two weeks ago and then had a buy week this past weekend and get ready to travel to College Park to take on the Terps of Maryland.
WVU- After a big loss to Mizzu, Wvu had a big win over NC State, and this past weekend a nice win over Kansas . This week the Eers have a Buy and then Texas Longhorns headed into Morgantown.
ND- after a huge win over New Mexico, Nd went to Athens and took on the Dawgs. The game was solid, and back n fourth with the Dawgs coming away with the win 23-17. The Irish have Virginia coming into South Bend this week.
NFL- AB played one game with the Pats, went the whole week of practice, then he gets cut on Friday. With him getting cut before Monday , his Bonus of 5 mill was due that he will not receive . Guess you shouldn’t send threatening texts and then leak them yourself to the media.
Saquon Barkley is out 4-8 weeks with a High Ankle Sprain, Brees is out 6 weeks with a thumb, Nick Foles we touched on las show is out probably for the season , his back up Gardner Minshew is the toast of the town currently with his stash and cutoff Jorts. Michael Crabtree was released by Arizona and is now available to be picked up.
Steelers- well, Big Ben is out for the season, first time in his career he had a season ending injury this early. He had surgery on his elbow, not Tommy John. The Seattle game when Ben was injured ended 28-26 with Mason Rudolf the one mounting the Comeback but falling short as the Defense breaking down. This past week the Steelers went to San Fran and the Defense did its job forcing 5 turnovers, but only transpired in 6 points as the Offense couldn’t get anything going. Then in the second half, the niners pulled ahead and the Steelers D let them march down the field as the D broke down, probably because they were on the field an awful lot, James Conners Fumble that let the Niners have the ball for the winning score. Minkah Fitzpatrick who we traded our first round pick next year for had a Pick, FF and 9 tackles. The trade made lots of people question life, but I think it will turn out for the better.
Pitt Womens Volleyball ranked #4 in the nation and took a Home N Home from PSU.
