The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


National Treasure: Coming this fall to HBO will be College Football’s version of ‘Hard Knocks’. And who better to put cameras in front of other than Washington State head coach Mike Leach, the ‘Mad Scientist of Football’. I’m certain to be glued to the tube. Take for instance Leach’s assessment on ‘Time Of Possession’ … “People that value time of possession, they just sit behind the center and pretend they are gonna tickle his ass, and maybe they are and maybe they’re not and just wait for the clock to tick by. You’re just pretending you’re a smart football coach if you’re doing that. If what you do in practice has any value whatsoever, you’d probably be focused on executing plays. Dramatically looking around in space and going towards the center and away from the center and pretending somehow you’ve revolutionized something smart, to me, it’s entirely idiotic.” … Like I say, it will be must-watch TV.

Today’s 2-Minute Handicap

MLB – Philadelphia: 8-2 series vs. Pirates … Miami: 11-2 home series vs. Cardinals … St. Louis: Wainwright 6-0 $ career away vs. Brewers … NYY: Happ 5-1 $ vs. Mariners.

Bar Bet

Here’s a bar bet you’ll likely win 10 out of 10 times. Texas junior Sam Ehlinger is one of six Power Five QBs in the past 20 years to record 25 passing TDs and 15 rushing TDs in the same season. Can you name the other five QBs? Hint: They all won the Heisman Trophy.
