PODCAST: Cougars win, Seahawks lose, and Floyd Mayweather’s “last fight”

We’re back with the latest episode of our podcast, as Victor and I talk about WSU’s surprising win over Rutgers, Seattle’s upsetting (but not surprising) loss to St. Louis, and the lame “final” fight of Floyd Mayweather’s career…and whether or not we actually think its his last fight.

Darrell Bevell is often a favorite target of mine, and deservedly so, but he’s not the reason that Dion Bailey tripped and fell leaving Lance Kendricks wide open on vertical route. Bevell wasn’t on the field when Stephen Hashuschka botched the pootch kick, which gave the Rams the ball at Seattle’s 35; and he most certainly wasn’t on the field as the Rams hit the game-winning kick.

What Bevell did do was draw up an offensive game plan that was put all of the pressure on a young, and inexperienced, offensive line, while asking Russell Wilson to find guys 10 (or more) yards down field. It didn’t work, and the Seahawks offense only scored 17-points while averaging 4.3 yards per play (yuck!) — for comparison, the Rams averaged 6.4 yards per play.

At least we have Washington State’s impressive 37-34 win over Rutgers, right guys?

While it was the last fight on Mayweather’s ridiculous contract with Showtime, I personally find t unlikely that his victory over Andre Berto is actually the last fight he’ll have in his career. As we discussed, Berto is an extremely weak opponent and there is going to be more money on table for him to have a slightly stronger opponent to beat in his final match.

Thanks for listening!
