WCE 217: Boogie Cousins, Grizzlies, Jeff Long, Tiger vs Phil, Big 12 vs SEC

The boys are back to talk the biggest stories from the July 4th week.

1. NBA News
– DeMarcus Cousins to the Warriors – 1yr $5M – is the NBA broken or does this make sense?
– Carmelo Anthony was released by the Thunder – is this it for Melo? Is he still viewed as an all-star?
– Grizzlies sign Kyle Anderson from Spurs – 4 yr / $37M contract
– Tyreke Evans signed with Indiana 1yr $12M – do the Grizzlies get a pass for screwing this up?

2. College Football News
– Georgia QB Jake Fromm broke his non-throwing hand in a freak boating accident.
– former Arkansas AD Jeff Long was just hired as Kansas’s AD, and is now the 2nd highest paid AD in the Big 12 – higher than Texas’s AD. Can Long rebuild the Kansas football program, and will he be the first Kansas AD to see the Jayhawks lose a regular season conference title in basketball since the early 2000s?
– NCAA 14 five-year anniversary – SBNation has a cool writeup on it, and how a large group of people are keeping the game alive (Operation Sports forum)

3. Tiger Woods vs Phil Mickelson
– primetime matchup, and they own all the rights to it. Genius? Yup.

– Chris’s Song of the Week

Hot Takes of the Week
– Chris’s – College Football vs the NBA
– Gary’s – Jacob Ta’amu vs Shea Patterson

Fact or Fiction: Would any top 5 defense (either scoring or total) from last season still be a top 5 defense if they were in the Big 12?

Gary Segars

Gary began his first website in 1998 as a sophomore in high school, writing reviews of cds and live shows in the Memphis area. He became editor of his college newspaper, then moved towards a career in music.He started the infamous MemphisTider.com blog during the 2006 football season, and was lucky enough to get into blogging just before the coaching search that landed Nick Saban at Alabama. The month and a half long coaching search netted his site, which was known for tracking airplanes, over 1 million hits in less than 90 days. The website introduced Gary to tons of new friends, including Nico and Todd, who had just started the site RollBamaRoll.com.After diving into more than just Alabama news, Gary started up his first installment of WinningCuresEverything.com in 2012. After keeping the site quiet for a while, it was started back up in April 2016. Gary then joined forces with high school friend Chris Giannini and began a podcast during the 2016 football season that runs at least 2 times a week, focusing on college football, NFL football, and sports wagering, and diving into other sports and pop-culture topics.E-mail: gary@winningcureseverything.com Twitter: @GaryWCE
