    Friday’s 6-pack
    College football leaders in passing yardage:
    1,464— Jake Haener, Fresno State
    1,298— Brennan Armstrong, Virginia
    1,133— Chevan Cordiero, Hawai’i
    1,110— Grant Wells, Marshall
    1,083— Will Rogers, Miss State
    1,023— Tanner Mordecai, SMU

    Quote of the Day
    “Anybody who is good enough to get in, is good enough to win three series.”
    White Sox manager Tony LaRussa; his team won AL Central for first time since 2008.

    Friday’s quiz
    Where is the Liberty Bowl football game played?

    Thursday’s quiz
    Jake Delhomme, Cam Newton played QB for the Carolina Panthers in their two Super Bowls.

    Wednesday’s quiz
    Terry Francona managed the Red Sox when they won the World Series in 2004 and 2007.

    ****************************

    Friday’s Den: Random stuff with weekend here……..

    13) Carolina 24, Houston 9:
    — Panthers are 3-0; opposing QB’s were two rookies and Jameis Winston.
    — Carolina has allowed opponents four TD’s on 31 drives.
    — Panthers lost star RB McCaffrey to strained hamstring.

    — Carolina outgained Houston 407-193.
    — Texans converted 1-9 third down plays.
    — First four series: Houston ran 17 plays for 54 yards.

    12) Appalachian State 31, Marshall 30:
    — Marshall led 30-21 after third quarter.
    — Thundering Herd had a 56-yard TD pass, ran kick back 97 yards for a TD.
    — App State kicked a 45-yard FG with 5:45 left for the win.

    11) Chicago White Sox are first team to clinch their division this season; Pale Hose last won the AL Central in 2008.

    Four other teams have clinched playoff spots, but no one else has clinched their division.

    10) White Sox 2B Cesar Hernandez got his 1,000th career hit Thursday, a cool milestone; he got lucky this summer, getting traded from the also-ran Indians to first-place Chicago.

    9) Our college football page has write-ups on 13 of Saturday’s top games every week, as well as all of Friday’s action.

    8) USC QB Jaxson Dart hurt his knee last week, had an operation this week on his meniscus, so Kevon Slodis will get his starting job back when the Trojans play Oregon State Saturday.

    Trojans won last four games with OSU (3-1 ATS) scoring 35.5 ppg.

    7) Purdue is 12-4 in its last 16 games with Illinois; Illini is 3-5 ATS in last eight visits to Purdue.

    6) Utah beat Washington State last two years, 45-28, 38-13; Coogs had beaten Utah four times in row while Mike Leach was coach. Current Wazzu coach Nick Rolovish is in a kerfuffle because he refuses to get the vaccine. He better start winning some games…….

    5) Colorado won three of last four games with Arizona State, after losing previous seven meetings; favorites covered nine of last 11 series games.

    4) Tennessee is rebuilding its program; Florida is smarting after a tough loss to Alabama LW. Gators won 15 of last 16 games against Tennessee— they’re 9-4 ATS in last 13 meetings.

    3) West Virginia-Oklahoma is your basic 1.137-mile road trip for a conference game; why are these teams in the same league?!?!?!?!?!?

    Oklahoma won last seven meetings, going 5-0-1 ATS in last six- they scored 52+ points in last four.

    2) RIP to actor Willie Garson, 57, who passed away from cancer this week. I enjoyed his work on the old TV show White Collar; he played Mozzy. RIP, sir.

    1) If the baseball playoffs started today (they don’t):
    NL: Braves, Brewers, Giants. Wild Card: St Louis @ Los Angeles
    AL: Rays, White Sox, Astros. Wild Card: New York @ Boston

    Thursday’s 6-pack
    NFL leaders in passing yardage:
    817— Derek Carr, LV
    689— Kyler Murray, Ariz
    680— Patrick Mahomes, KC
    675— Justin Herbert, LAC
    655— Tom Brady, TB
    640— Dak Prescott, Dal

    Quote of the Day
    “Belichick wanted him out the door, and last year he threw 56 touchdowns. I think that’s a pretty good year.”
    Tom Brady Sr, talking about his son’s leaving New England

    Thursday’s quiz
    Who played QB for the Carolina Panthers in their two Super Bowls?

    Wednesday’s quiz
    Terry Francona managed the Red Sox when they won the World Series in 2004 and 2007.

    Tuesday’s quiz
    When baseball split into divisions in 1969, Atlanta Braves won the National League West that year; they lost to the Mets in the NLCS.


    ****************************************

    Thursday’s Den: Doing some thinking out loud……..

    13) Tampa Bay Rays clinched their third straight playoff spot Wednesday; they’re 94-59 this year, are jogging to the AL East title. Kevin Cash has done a hell of a job managing them; too bad they don’t draw very well. Have a feeling that when baseball expands in a couple years, the Rays could wind up north of the border, in Montreal maybe?

    12) Since 1990, NFL teams that started a season 0-2 made the playoffs only 11.6% of the time; those odds will go up, since the season is now 17 games instead of 16, but still, 0-2 ain’t good.

    11) Since 2000, these NFL teams have started the most different QB’s:
    29— Cleveland
    26— Chicago (Justin Fields will be #26 this week)
    24— Washington
    23— Miami

    10) Jeff Driskel is the backup QB for Houston tonight; technically he is their #4 QB, but Tyros Taylor is hurt and Deshaun Watson has other issues, so rookie Davis Mills and Driskel are it for the Texans this week.

    Hopefully Driskel writes a book someday; he played four years for the Florida Gators, then played his last year of college at Louisiana Tech. 49ers drafted him in the 6th round of the 2016 draft, but he never played for them. Here is Driskel’s resume:

    2018: Bengals 1-4 as starter, 1,003 PY, 6 TD’s, 2 INT
    2019: Lions 0-3 as starter, 685 PY, 4 TD’s, 4 INT
    2020: Broncos 0-1 as starter, 432 PY, 3 TD’s, 2 INT

    Four years, four teams. Quite an experience.

    9) Kyle Schwarber has nine home runs in 10 games against the Mets this year.

    8) Speaking of the Mets, Taijuan Walker gave up six runs in 2+ IP in Boston Wednesday; Walker was 7-3, 2.06 at the All-Star break this year, made the All-Star team, but in 13 starts since then, Walker is 0-8, 8.03 in 13 starts. A disturbing reversal of fortune.

    7) Cardinals 10, Brewers 2— St Louis won its 11th straight game, have a 4.5 game lead over the Reds/Phillies for the second Wild Card spot.

    6) Giants 8, Padres 6— Buster Posey had four hits, scored three runs; Giants have a 2-game lead over the Dodgers in the NL West.

    5) NFL QB changes:
    — Davis Mills gets his first NFL start for Houston tonight.
    — Jacoby Brissett starts for Miami this week when they visit Las Vegas.
    — Justin Fields gets his first NFL when the Bears visit Cleveland.

    4) Minnesota Timberwolves fired President of Basketball Operations Gersson Rosas; weird time to do it, so close to the start of training camp.

    Timberwolves will switch ownership to Alex Rodriguez and Marc Lore in 2023; you wonder if they wanted Rosas out, and let current owner Glen Taylor do the dirty work for them.

    3) Braves’ OF Eddie Rosario hit for the cycle the other night; in the four at-bats where he got his hits, he saw a total of five pitches, which has to be some kind of a record.

    2) Raiders’ kicker Daniel Carlson admitted his 14-point performance in Pittsburgh LW led to his losing a fantasy football game where he was playing against himself.

    1) If the baseball playoffs started today (they don’t):
    NL: Braves, Brewers, Giants. Wild Card: St Louis @ Los Angeles
    AL: Rays, White Sox, Astros. Wild Card: New York @ Boston
