With only the team rosters and a small sample size of preseason games to work with, the DC sports staff makes their picks for Super Bowl LIV and who will ultimately hoist the Lombardi Trophy in the league’s centennial anniversary.
As the NFL Draft has come and gone, the next course of action is to breakdown each team’s selections. Giants fans, and plenty of others, questioned taking Daniel Jones sixth overall while defensive studs Josh Allen and Ed Oliver fell into the laps of the Jaguars and Bills. While hindsight may be 20/20, the Daily Campus sports section is here to determine which team got the best bang for their buck in the 2019 draft.
After months of mock drafts, rumors and rampant speculation, the NFL Draft is finally here. The Arizona Cardinals are unofficially on the clock with the No. 1 overall pick, and it seems they’ll likely take Nick Bosa or draft (and promptly negotiate a trade) quarterback Kyler Murray. But there aren’t any Cardinals fans on the staff, so instead, we’ll discuss our respective favorite teams in this week’s roundtable. Who do we want our teams to draft?
I absolutely love Jim Harbaugh. This man man is crazy. He eats, sleeps, lives and breathes football and would probably cease to exist without it. Every week there’s at least one moment where he looks just about ready to yell at a ref or jump onto the field in the mid-game and start tackling guys. He’s a great coach, evident by the fact that he rebuilt Stanford, the 49ers and Michigan, but he can’t help but start drama with other coaches. He’s the absolute polar opposite of Bill Belichick and that’s why he’s my favorite coach.
Baseball season is underway, and with it, we get our first looks at the song each player has chosen to play as he steps into the batter’s box or takes the mound. Earlier this season, one of our baseball beat writers rated the walk-up songs of the UConn baseball team. In the weekly sports roundtable, the DC Sports staff shares what their walk-up songs would be...and yes, “Old Town Road” is a strong possibility.
Over his nine-year career, Gronk gave me some unforgettable moments, but the one that jumps out to me the most is when he single-handedly beat the Steelers in Week 15 of the 2017 season. In a game that was crucial for playoff positioning, Tom Brady turned to his most dependable receiver, and Gronk did not disappoint.
As much as I like the more unique-colored uniforms like the Atlanta Legends’ purple or the Salt Lake Stallions’ sky blue, I have to go with a more classic set of colors: the red and blue of the Memphis Express. The helmets are awesome, as the blue fades to red and the logo of what looks like a plane is blue with a white outline.
At the break, the Milwaukee Bucks hold the top spot in the Eastern Conference, just one game ahead of the Raptors. With the next three teams separated by just a game and some serious upset potential near the bottom of the top-eight, it’s tough to say who will represent the East in the NBA Finals. Will the Greek Freak-led Bucks hold on? Will the Celtics surge? Will the Nets shock the world? The DC Sports staff debates.
You know that new Ariana Grande song, ‘7 rings’? Well, bad song aside, that’s now a real possibility for the Tom Brady-Bill Belichick era in New England, following their sixth title on Sunday. In the weekly Daily Campus Sports roundtable, our writers argue whether this championship will be the last we’ll see from the duo, or whether we’ll see Brady and Belichick once again hoisting the Lombardi Trophy before they call it a career.
While this might not be the strongest Patriots team to make the Super Bowl in recent years, I still believe they are more than capable of winning this game. Aaron Donald and Ndamukong Suh absolutely terrify me, but the Patriots have already made it past a pair of strong pass rushing teams without letting up a single sack. Tom Brady is still Tom Brady and Belichick will conjure some black magic to build a defensive scheme that slows the Rams’ potent offense down just enough.
