Sam Darnold should stay at USC rather than go to an incompetent NFL team
If he was eligible for this year’s NFL Draft, USC redshirt freshman quarterback Sam Darnold probably would have been the #1 overall pick. Darnold will almost certainly be the #1 pick next year if he decides to come out, but sources close to the quarterback say he may stay with the Trojans instead of declaring for the draft.
Colin thinks that Darnold should use the leverage he has and stay in school if a team that tanks their season to get him ends up with the first pick. If the choice is, stay at USC for another year or go to the Browns, Darnold should stay in school. He shouldn’t reward teams for aggressively pursuing incompetence.
“You have to earn the right to get somebody as good as Sam Darnold.”
Vegas believes in Lonzo Ball
The NBA season win total over/unders have been released and the Lakers’ total was set at 36.5, which is a considerable bump from the 26 games they won last season.
Colin thinks this proves Vegas is a believer in Lonzo Ball, since he’s the biggest addition to a team that will only field around a $30 million payroll, and is more interested in setting themselves up to aggressively pursue free agents in the 2018 offseason, than winning next year. Any improvement in L.A. this year will have to come from the impact Ball has running the show.
Is Ball, alone, worth 10 games? Vegas thinks so, and they didn’t build all of those casinos by being wrong.
“That is a bet on Lonzo Ball.”
