Welcome to a special Sunday edition of Wake Up With Whitty. Yesterday was a huge day for college football as two top 4 teams fell, and several over top 25 schools were upset by unranked opponents. I could be a little biased, but we may have witnessed the Game of the Year last night in Ohio State’s comeback victory over Penn State. They didn’t look great last night at times (especially in the uniform department), but JT Barrett and the Buckeyes pulled it off. It’s been a wild past 16 hours, so that’s my excuse if this week’s Wake Up With Whitty sucks.
On today’s episode the Nati Boys “stick to sports” as we discuss some of the big story lines from around the NFL, including the growing number of National Anthem protests and the response that they’ve drawn from some high profile critics. We recap the Bengals/Packers game as the Bengals offense got off to a promising start before falling flat in the second half, and we ponder what the not-so-distant future has in store for Andy Dalton and Marvin Lewis. The Bengals have some company at the bottom though, as we’ve seen some pretty bad football through 3 weeks of the NFL season. On the college football front, the Nati Boys discuss the Buckeyes and Bearcats games from Saturday and we touch on some of the exciting finishes we saw in the NCAA over the weekend. We bid farewell to Bronson Arroyo who received a nice sendoff during the Reds final home series of the year, and we wrap up with some NBA trade talk as the New York Knicks have agreed to send Carmelo Anthony off to the Thunder to join up with Russell Westbrook and Paul George in Oklahoma City.
