The Everyday Mailbag-11/1/11

There was plenty of good football this weekend in the college and professional ranks. And with those games, some questions have arised! Without further adieu, here are the questions the Sports World wants to know!

Q: If you have the second pick in the NFL draft, who do you pick?
-Jeremy W., Winnipeg, Canada

A: Depends on what is needed with that pick. It looks like the Dolphins and the Colts are on a collision course to go get Andrew Luck. Whichever team gets him, expect the next team to take either an offensive lineman or a defender. As far as prospects for that pic, there's plenty of those, but no one has really stands out as the second pick in the draft right now for me.

Q: Do you think Buckeyes can break into Top 25 by years end?
-Bobby C., Sacramento, CA
A: I think that for as good as the Buckeyes played the Badgers this weekend, they may not play that well again this season. The reason I'm saying this is because they have a young QB in Braxton Miller who is still learning and that doesn't bode well for them in the area of consistency.

Q: Who do you have for the upcoming "Nick Saban" bowl this weekend?
-Kareem H., Nashville, TN

A: I think I'm gonna have to say Alabama. Both teams have incredible defenses, but one team has Trent Richardson. The other doesn't. He's the difference.

Q: Is the University of Tennessee recruiting in Tennessee I see a lot of 4 star prospects committing to other SEC schools?
-James R., Nashville, TN

A: They are. Trust me. Just not having great results. They have got C James Stone from in-state and also mammoth lineman Antonio Richardson from as well last year. Its still early. It wouldn't surprise me if they get one of the big-time recruits in the end.

Q: Now that Patriots defense has been exposed, can they still stay on top of the ranks this season?
-Angie B., Elmont, NY

A: I think the Patriots are an interesting case. With the team they have, they depend on Brady. Brady has to be great for them to win. And usually, Brady is great, so expect him to keep them in the race. Also, each team in the AFC East has holes. The Bills aren't consistent getting pressure on QBs. The Jets are inconsistent offensively. So, with that being said and looking at the rest of their schedule, they can stay atop the rankings in the NFL.

Thanks for all the questions this week! And remember, if you have sports questions, I have answers.

  1. Agree Mike, it will be tough, Im happy as a Buckeye fan though, after beating ranked IIlinois and Wisconsin, it look slike the Bucks are recovering a lot quick than it be back in week 4, i think it was, when they got destroyed by the U. Finally getting Boom Harron back doset hurt either. Go Bucks!
