Wake Up With Whitty – 11/12/2017

Hello and welcome to another edition of Wake Up With Whitty. The last few weeks of college football have been pretty crazy, in an exciting kind of way (except for last week’s OSU/Iowa game, which I refuse to acknowledge), and yesterday was no exception. We saw two top 4 teams fall and four top 10 teams. In each of the past 3 weeks we’ve seen at least two top 10 teams go down. With two weeks left in the season, plus conference championship games still to come, there’s a good chance we’ll see more shakeups before all is said and done. This could be the first year we see a 2-loss team in the College Football Playoff (fingers crossed). So if the NFL isn’t giving you enough excitement (and if you’re Bengals fan like me, it isn’t), there’s plenty to be found in the college game. And if that doesn’t it for you, then I don’t know how to help you…

Wake Up With Whitty – 9/23/2017

I just want to take a minute to wish my good friend Marvin Lewis a happy birthday. The Bengals head coach celebrated earlier this week by firing long-time assistant, and most recent Bengals’ offensive coordinator, Ken Zampese. He followed it up by letting the team know that Zampese didn’t get himself fired, the team did, and if they don’t turn things around soon then they may be next. While I admire the motivational tactic, I think Marvin may be the next one on the chopping block if the Bengals fortunes don’t change soon. It seems like at least one NFL expert agrees with me. A few more ugly losses and Marvin may not make it past the bye week. So, like I said, Happy Birthday Marvin! And now that we’ve gotten things off to such a positive note, welcome to another edition of Wake Up With Whitty…

Jerry Jones Says “NO EXTENSION FOR YOU!”

Who didn’t expect this? Jerry Jones is not happy with Roger Goodell’s current handling of his star running back’s off the field troubles. At this point there’s not much he can do on the Zeke front as it plays out in court, but that doesn’t mean he won’t go down kicking and screaming.

You know what else is going on in the Commissioner’s office right now? A contract extension. Not so fast my friends.   Continue reading

Wake Up With Whitty – 7/8/2017

 

Good morning and welcome another edition of Wake Up With Whitty.  This past week we celebrated the 241st birthday of the United States of America (happy belated birthday America!!), which was promptly followed by the longest three work days of the year.  There’s nothing worse than heading back to the office after a mid-week holiday, especially when half of your co-workers probably took the rest of the week off.  For those of us that powered through the post-Independence Day hangover, this weekend couldn’t have gotten here soon enough.  What better way to start it off than by reading my ramblings about random topics from the past week?  So kick back, relax and enjoy this edition of Wake Up With Whitty!
