Mater Dei’s quest to redeem a painful loss last season continued Friday against the rival who spoiled its storybook ending. The Monarchs’ football team will need to regroup after their trip to St. John Bosco on Friday.
Las Vegas Raiders Derek Carr and Davante Adams were in sync for an impressive first half in fantasy football points in Week 9. The Las Vegas Raiders continue to disappoint, but for fantasy football team owners, some of the team's stars are proving to be very reliable on the fantasy boards. Derek Carr Raiders quarterback Derek Carr bounced back from one of the worst games in his NFL career on Sunday. The three-time Pro Bowler threw for 259 yards and two touchdowns, which was good enough for 18.36 PPR fantasy points.
One day after replacing head coach Frank Reich, the Indianapolis Colts interim coach Jeff Saturday has named his play-caller. Reich had been overseeing Indianapolis’ offense after firing coordinator Marcus Brady after Week 8, but starting on Sunday’s game against the Raiders, the play-calling duties will be taken over by assistant Parks Frazier. The 30-year-old Frazier is in his fifth season with the Colts, hired by Reich in 2018. The former Northeast Mississippi and Murray State quarterback spent his first two years as an assistant to the head coach, and after one season as offensive quality control coach, Frazier was elevated to assistant QBs coach in 2021. He was named pass game specialist/assistant QBs coach this year. In his time as assistant to the head coach, Frazier would communicate with Reich from the coaches’ box, offering in-game tips on opposing tendencies.
Oklahoma State started slow, but a Tom Hutton - Brennan Pressley gem gave the defense the opportunity it needed to flex a little muscle. One safety and a quarter later OSU was well on its way to a comfortable blowout and I suppose some exorcizing of the demon of the untimed down. Spencer Sanders (Ian Nikkel’s favorite player) had himself a game, torching a not-so-great Central Michigan defense for a number of touchdowns in the first half. The most surprising event of the first half was the Cowboys’ final possession. With 43 seconds remaining, the ENTIRE OSU football community left for the halftime break. They would return to discover that the Cowboys took just three plays and no timeouts to put seven more points on the board. Oklahoma State would take just two plays to score to start the second half and we were all eagerly awaiting the appearance of one Gunnar Gundy with OSU leading 51-15. Not so fast...the Chips went right down and scored, then the Cowboys’ offense went stagnant. At this point, the game kind of became unwatchable, probably as Gundy desired. Oklahoma State wasn’t far enough ahead for HCMG to be comfortable trotting out the backup QB, but at the same time was perfectly OK letting the defense stall out the game. This resulted in exactly what we can’t stand, with the Chippewas slowly working their way back into the game. SS would account for six TDs on the night, four passing and two rushing. He finished 28-41-0 FOR 406 yards passing and would also lead the team in rushing along with the longest run from scrimmage, although this was an anemic effort for that part of the offense for most of the night until Dominic Richardson got a few chunk plays on OSU’s last TD drive. Sure, Central Michigan stacked the box, but the offensive line looks a little suspect and the running backs don’t look explosive at this point.
Poasa Utu visited Oklahoma State during camp week this summer and left with his first FBS offer, and now he’ll be a Cowboy. Utu, a 2023 linebacker from Kennedale, Texas, announced his commitment to Oklahoma State on Monday. Listed at 6-foot, 200 pounds, Utu is unranked in the 2023 class, but the Cowboys’ coaching staff felt strongly enough about his abilities to offer him after seeing him at camp.

With two outs in the top of the sixth inning of a tense scoreless game, Oklahoma State’s Miranda Elish had fallen behind in the count, but battled back to force it full. At that point, clapping from fans throughout Cowgirl Stadium slowly began to build, as if they sensed they were on the edge of a big moment. "I heard it," Elish said. "I tried not to let it get me too high or anything. I was just trying to stay focused and hit the ball hard and hope that something comes from it."
Welcome back to another week of "You’re Nuts" with the Bucketheads. With the Ohio State men’s basketball roster officially set and not much basketball-related stuff going on, we are going to take a different route with this one. We are picking the creepiest/strangest/weirdest mascot in college sports. Before that, let’s talk about last week. With the roster getting locked in last week, we debated who will be Ohio State’s "X-factor" this season. Connor picked big man Zed Key, while Justin picked Isaac Likekele Anyone if they want to know all the details on how to watch the 2023 Rugby World Cup live streaming on TV
