I’m not always right but 9 times out of 10 I am. On Sunday I wrote about how it was not smart of the Packers to throw Aaron Rodgers into the fire if he wasn’t 100% healed which he obviously wasn’t. Rodgers took a bunch of hits Sunday against Carolina in addition to his 3 interceptions. Well, the Packers announced today that they are putting Rodgers on the IR effectively shutting down his 2017 season in which he has already missed 8 games. They should have never started him in the first place.
After Carolina Panthers’ Owner Jerry Richardson announced he was going to sell the team after allegations of sexual and racial misconduct, none other than P. Diddy is apparently a serious suitor to by the team. And who is a prominent member of his investing team? Colin Kaepernick. Sign me right up for Colin Kaepernick to be an owner of an NFL team. Talk about a 360 degree turn of events. You can’t make that stuff up.
In College Football news, Lane Kiffin and Florida Atlantic University recently agreed to a 10 year contract extension. I’d be surprised if Kiffin makes it a third of the way into that contract. FAU has hopes to be a top 25 college football program. Good, every program should. After earning their first ever 10 win season I would have high expectations going in to 2018 if I were FAU so the contract extension was a good move on there part. But 10 years? Kiffin will be coaching in a power 5 conference by 2020.
