WCE 219: SEC East Preview, Goodell blocks Josh Gordon, MLB expansion

College Football Talking Season is officially here! After SEC Media Days last week, Gary and Chris run through their SEC East preview and predictions, and also discuss other things that happened last week.

In this week’s “The Blurbs:”
– Rob Manfred, MLB commissioner, stated he wants to expand from 30 teams to 32 teams, and even listed cities. Where should MLB place new franchises?
– Kawhi Leonard & Danny Green to the Raptors, Demar Derozan to the Spurs. Who won the trade?
– Larry Fedora at ACC Media Days said that “football is under attack” and that if football goes down, the country goes down with it. He also said it hasn’t been proven CTE is linked to football. Should North Carolina fire him?
– The guys talk about Ryan Nanni’s SBNation article “Why it should cost one point to punt.”

The Ranking: Our 10 Best / Favorite NFL Quarterbacks of all-time. Chris has the first pick, but Gary’s draftees may surprise you…

Song of the Week – Chris’s pick this week comes from George Strait.

Chris’s HOT TAKE: Josh Gordon isn’t being allowed to attend Browns mini-camp. The reason? Roger Goodell wants him to spend time “thinking” about his past mistakes. Chis thinks that’s ridiculous and goes in on him.

Garys HOT TAKE: Aaron Murray and David Pollack basically attacked Jeremy Pruitt during SEC Media Days last week, because he was “disrespectful” to former Georgia coach Mark Richt during his time as defensive coordinator, and said he wouldn’t make a good head coach because he doesn’t know how to treat people. That’s ridiculous, and Gary explains why.

FACT OR FICTION: Chris asks Gary, based on this past weekend’s Open Championship PGA tournament, if some sporting events would be better if the ending were fixed.

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
