Seattle passed on drafting Budda Baker. 

The Seahawks took Malik McDowell one pick before the Cardinals snatched up Baker in the 2017 NFL Draft. Now the highest paid safety in the game, Baker is starting to get recognized on a national stage. 

 

Seattle comes to Glendale on Sunday undefeated. It feels like they always come to Arizona with a team that competes for the top spot in the NFC West.  What a great litmus test for the Cardinals…

The longer I watch postseason baseball, the further away the Diamondbacks appear to be from playing games in any part of October anytime soon…

I’d say Ohio State will lay 60 on Nebraska Saturday. I’d also say there will be people within the Big 10 who will be cheering for 70…

Arizona State vs Arizona on a Friday night the second week of December means that virtual holiday parties will have something on in the background while drinking egg nog. Give me Saturday night at 5:30pm on ESPN and i’d be elated…

Top high school football players in our state love to leave the nest. I have no problem with 18 year olds wanting to get away from the heat and home. I guess when I see stories like the ongoing “The Eyes of Teaas” saga at UT, I have to wonder how much drama can one player take before they say, “you know, maybe Tempe or Tucson aren’t so bad”…

Had Rich Rod on the show the other day. Why he isn’t sitting in a national chair doing analysis is beyond me. Entertaining and passionate…

Friend of mine called the other day to talk about his family getting COVID-19. His kids play football on Friday nights. Years from now when the documentary is made about COVID-19 and 2020, including a segment on high school football should be in the script…

Initially I didn’t think Mike Zdebski would be able to get Hamilton out of the whole following the hazing scandal. Now, the Huskies are on ESPN this Friday night against Saguaro. Both of these schools will be in the Open Division playoff no matter the outcome. The question for me is power points and seedings. Hamilton lost a game to COVID(Chaparral). Saguaro played Maricopa last week and won by 8 touchdowns. The Sabercats are sitting at -2.4 in strength and currently 6th in MaxPreps rankings while the Huskies are 3rd…
