Spurs collapse in the second half at Stamford Bridge, allowing Leicester City to clinch their first-ever EPL title. The Foxes have to go down as one of the most unlikely champs in modern sports history.
Men's lax got a big win in their season finale over 16th-ranked Rutgers, 12-10. Since only four teams make the Big Ten Tournament, their season is likely over; they lose the head-to-head tie-breaker for the 4th and final spot with Penn State.
It's also telling that they've only had a total of 10 players selected in the past 6 NFL drafts combined. That is pathetic. They'll have a few guys drafted next year (Barnett, Reeves-Maybin, Sutton, Kamara, Hurd, Dobbs).
That said, they should actually be decent next year, by default; they have a favorable schedule, with the SEC East being down again, which is why they are getting so much pub. Heck, the only team on their schedule this year who finished the season ranked in 2015 is Alabama. I still think they are being overhyped because of their weak division. More importantly, they are still learning how to win. Just look at what happened in their losses to Oklahoma and Florida last year. Only an immature team finds a way to lose (not once but twice) in the way they blew those two games. Under Butch Jones, outside of the blowout bowl wins against Iowa and NW, the only "quality" wins they have were against South Carolina in 2013 and an unranked Georgia team (without Nick Chubb) last season.
With the 23rd pick, the Minnesota Vikings select Mike Thomas - WR from THE Ohio State University.
The Vikings made some quality moves in free agency, but Teddy Bridgewater still needs wide receiver help in a big way. Signing Mike Wallace last year was a disaster, and while Cordarrelle Patterson proved himself as a return specialist, he was a complete bust at WR; Patterson never bothered to learn how to run an actual route, apparently. Zimmer clearly needs a WR to compliment Stefon Diggs, and at 6’2”, Thomas can fill that need immediately.
Treadwell, Doctson, and Thomas are all similar prospects – very similar size and none are absolute burners per se, but Thomas is the most consistent and well-rounded of the bunch.
Now things will start to get interesting.
Floyd is the pick at #14
This one has to be obvious...
Leonard Floyd was the pick, according to the updated OP.
I think Tank already claimed it.
To be fair, we filled most of the slots in the previous thread.
Eagles are on the clock.
I'll take the Vikings, assuming they are still available.
How 'bout them Preds?? What a performance by Pekka Rinne.
Unbelievable performance by Pekka Rinne last night. Stood on his head to put Nashville in the conference semis!
Blues-Stars should be a fantastic series, especially considering the effort the Blues had to put forth to dispatch the Hawks. On paper, I think the Blues win the series in 5 (maybe 6), but I wonder where they will be mentally/physically, after such a tough series with Chicago. Could go either way.
Yup. Gonna have the same problem in the semis too, with a Sharks-Preds/Ducks matchup.
With the NHL deciding to start the eastern conference semis tomorrow, the Preds-Ducks game gets pushed to 10pm EST. Jeez. I get that it's in Anaheim, but man, I hate these late start times.
I'll be surprised if Leicester clinches at Old Trafford. More likely that it happens the following week against Everton.
Preds win! Here's hoping we can find a way to win in Anaheim on Wednesday. First Game 7 in franchise history.
Totally agree. Just gotta fix the bullpen. Doubt that they can completely turn it around, but once they get some of their starting pitching arms back from rehab, some of those young arms could help improve the bullpen.
Women's golf team finished 2nd at the Lady Buckeye Invitational. Two players finished in the top 10 - Jessica Porvasnik finished 5th (+2) and Rio Watanabe finished 8th (+5).
Men's golf team finished 7th at the Boilermaker Invitational. Will Grimmer finished 18th overall (+1).
The sweep over IPFW for the volleyball Bucks came in the MIVA quarterfinals. They'll take on McKendree in the MIVA Semifinals Wednesday night at St. John Arena.
Win again, and they'll host the Lewis/Loyola winner in the finals on Saturday night.
Another huge win for the Preds! I doubt anyone thought they could win back to back games in Anaheim. And in regulation.
Tunsil won't get past San Diego. They need OL help first and foremost. He may be the only OL that will go in the top 10, barring another trade. There's a good chance that Conklin or Stanley will fall to them at #15.
A lot depends on what the Browns do obviously. I think it's likely that Wentz/Goff go 1-2. Chargers will take Tunsil at #3. Cowboys love Jalen Ramsey, so he'll probably go #4. Who will the Jags take at #5? They need defensive front 7 help, so they could go Myles Jack or Buckner/Bosa. Ravens will take one of those three at #6. Who knows what the 49ers will do. I could see them taking whoever is left between Jack/Buckner/Bosa (best available), or going for broke and taking a QB (Lynch?).
I still think Zeke goes to the Eagles at #8, but Chicago would be a great landing spot too.
