Ohio State & USC Historical Games, Bradford & Sanchez Relocate, Police Union Upset W/Kaep, Serena Passes Federer


The College Football season is underway and we saw some exciting (and some not so surprising but history making) wins. In the history making category,  Ohio State powered over Bowling Green with a school record  776 yards. Quarterback J.T. Barrett threw for 6 touchdowns in the 77-10 win. And, USC suffered its worst loss in 120 years falling 52-6 to #1 ranked Alabama.

Sam BradfordIn NFL news, the 32 teams had to cut their rosters to 53 players over the weekend. Many players had their NFL hopes dashed while some veterans, like QB Sam Bradford, had to pick up and move to another state. Bradford was traded by the Philadelphia Eagles and sent to Minnesota to replace the injured Teddy Bridegwater.  QB Mark Sanchez (formerly of the New York Jets) also had to pack his bags. Shortly after he was cut from the Denver Broncos, he joined rookie QB Dak Prescott in Dallas.

49ers QB Colin Kaepernick’s refusal to stand during the National Anthem and then sporting socks with pigs wearing police helmets is continuing to create controversy. The Bay Area police union has threatened to boycott the 49er’s games if Kaep continues to refuses to stand during the National Anthem. The President of the Santa Clara Police Officers Association, Frank Saunders, said “I’m already hearing it this week that next week on ‘Monday Night Football,’ some officers are not going to work”. Saunders continued to say, “The 49ers are allowing this to come out from an employee and it’s making for a hostile work environment for us at the stadium,”. The 49ers organization has been relatively quiet regarding the controversy and has stated they recognize an individuals choice whether to stand or not to stand. The bright side of the controversy for the NFL is Kaepernick’s jersey sales have spiked!


With 308 wins, Serena Williams passed Rodger Federer for all-time career wins in Grand Slam match victories. Serena is currently in the quarterfinals round of the US Open.
