This week from the Eagles and College Hoops
🏈Eagles: The Eagles (QB) Joe Flacco to a one-year, guaranteed $3.5 million contract on Tuesday. We know what you’re thinking: WTF? Yes, 36-year-old Flacco won a Super Bowl in 2012. But...he also went 0-4 in the games he started last season. Yikes.
- Even though Flacco brings knowledge and experience to share with the Eagles’ young presumed starter, Jalen Hurts, it’s . Will the Birds ever stop burning money on half-rate QBs?
🎓🏀WBB: The Drexel Dragons lost in the first round of the NCAA Tournament on Monday, to a rock-solid Georgia Bulldogs team. Senior guard Hannah Nihill was the lone Dragon to score in the double-digits, draining 22 points for the squad. Her career might’ve ended this week, but at least she went down scoring.
MBB: After cruising through the first two rounds of the tournament, the No. 5 Villanova Wildcats will have to battle the No. 1 Baylor Bears in the Sweet 16 on Saturday at 5:15 p.m. ET.
- The Bears, led by Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year Davion Mitchell, are best-in-class three-point shooters, and many have them picked to go all the way. Once again, the world is betting against the ’Cats, but they’re thriving as the under...cats.
- Ever since ’Nova star guard Collin Gillespie injured his MCL a few weeks ago, forward Jeremiah Robinson-Earl and guard Justin Moore have to lead the team. Time for them to take it to the next level. Survive and advance, baby!
