Kevin Durant is shakier than a leaf but he got one thing right – moms are the real MVPs.

OSU Bullets

• Comments like this properly frame optimism around Spencer Sanders:

(Sanders) has one of the better downfield arms in the country and can drive the ball to the sideline from the opposite hash. Sanders is also a dynamic run threat with designed plays and out of structure… Sanders had a tendency to press and play with some freneticism. He’ll need to have the game slow down as a redshirt sophomore.

If it does, we’re talking about one of the more talented quarterbacks in college football. [247 Sports]

Phrases to pull out:

  • “one of the better downfield arms in the country”
  • “tendency to press and play with some freneticism”
  • “(if the game slows down), we’re talking about one of the more talented quarterbacks in college football.”

• Mike Boynton and the Pokes appear to be headed back to Brooklyn for the Legends Classic – playing Virginia or UCLA would be great challenges.

These lines about life post-pandemic from The Atlantic couldn’t describe the path forward better:

 The things we miss most about our pre-pandemic lives—dine-in restaurants and recreational travel, karaoke nights and baseball games—require more than government permission to be enjoyed.

These activities are predicated not only on close human contact but mutual affection and good-natured patience, on our ability to put up with one another. Governors can lift restrictions and companies can implement public-health protocols.

But until we stop reflexively seeing people as viral threats, those old small pleasures we crave are likely to remain elusive. [The Atlantic]
