LAMM AT LARGE: NBA’s gutless hierarchy

The NBA's hierarchy is gutless. Criticize America, no big deal.  May even get a few attaboys. Criticize Communist China, the land of slavery and human suffering. and alarms go off. Apologies are demanded. Butt-kissing is encouraged. The Celtics' Enes Kanter recently spoke out against China for treatment of Tibetans. That prompted China to take Celtics' games off all of its media. Did I mention China pays the NBA millions, maybe billions, […]

LAMM AT LARGE: Future bleak for Meyer in Jacksonville

I hate to pile on but Urban Meyer does look lost, confused and miserable. He doesn't handle losing very well. He showed that after his Florida Gators were blown out by Alabama in the '09 SEC Championship Game. He suffered a major anxiety attack later that night that all but ended his days in Gainesville. He had to know taking the Jaguars job was a risk. Not only were the […]

LAMM AT LARGE: Jon Gruden had to go

Who didn't know Jon Gruden would resign or be fired as the Raiders coach? The moment old e-mails were uncovered of him making bigoted and insensitive comments, his fate was cemented. In the world we live in, there is zero tolerance for such remarks. No matter how old they are; no matter how vague they may be. People have lost their jobs and social standing for comments made decades ago. […]

LAMM AT LARGE: More questions than answers with Urban Meyer

I've tossed this Urban Meyer situation around in my cluttered mind for three days and still have more questions than answers. My first reaction was the only person who has a good reason to be upset is his wife, Shelley. But she brushed off the Jaguars coach being in his Ohio restaurant/men's club and getting a sexy dance from a club dancer as a "needed boys night out". Yes, Meyer […]

Urban Meyer faces credibility crisis as Jaguars coach – and he knows it

By Hays Carlyon   Jaguars owner Shad Khan might have bought his biggest lemon yet in coach Urban Meyer. Not because the team is 0-4, although that is certainly disappointing. Meyer showed a stunning lack of judgment following Thursday night’s 24-21 loss at Cincinnati. He was caught on video in a precarious situation with a young woman at a bar in Columbus, Ohio. This is a 57-year-old man who has […]

LAMM AT LARGE: Love/Hate relationship with college football

I love college football. I hate college football. When college football is at its best, its great. But  college football is at its worse, it sucks. I'm not talking about the quality of the teams. I'm talking about scheduling. Last week, there were five nonconference games with a combined score of 321-21. Why is Pitt playing New Hampshire (77-7), Ohio State playing Akron (59-7), Miami playing Central Connecticut (69-0), Coastal […]

LAMM AT LARGE: Henderson just the latest Jags 1st round miss

When the Jaguars shipped C.J. Henderson, the 9th overall draft pick in 2020, and a 5th round pick to Carolina for a 3rd round pick and a journeyman tight end, it marked another 1st-round draft mistake for the franchise. That got me to thinking: exactly how bad have the Jaguars drafted since 2000? Concentrating only on top 10 picks, they have had an incredible 16 such picks over the last […]

LAMM AT LARGE: FSU’s biggest concern is apathy

I can't tell you what's wrong with FSU football. I do have an idea. I do know that it runs deep, deeper than just recruiting and coaching. Anyone under 50-55 can't imagine what's going on. FSU had an elite program starting in the late 70s until five years ago -- when Jimbo Fisher decided to spend more time looking for a new job than maintaining the Seminoles' lofty status in […]

LAMM AT LARGE: Ryder Cup as big as any major

Nothing illustrates the growing popularity of golf  more than the Ryder Cup. The match between America's best pros against those from Europe was seen as little more than an exhibition, even by most golf fans, for decades. Now the Ryder Cup is one of the premier sports events in America. The world, in fact. It stands alongside such events as the Final Four, college football playoff, the World Series, the NBA […]
