DIP #1 ... Texas, Oklahoma and TCU are all giving up a bunch of points this season because they lack that defensive COTF (coach on the field).
Texas hasn't had that player since LB Jordan Hicks in 2014. OU lost Eric Striker and Dominque Alexander from last year's defense, and TCU lost safety Derrick Kindred from last year.
DIP #2 ... I've got a one-game, winner-take-all Wild Card game against the Giants with Madison Bumgarner on the mound for the G-Men (who hasn't given up a run in 23 straight elimination game innings), so tell me again why on earth Mets' manager Terry Collins took flame-throwing Noah Syndergaard out after 7 unhittable innings?!?!?
DIP #3 ... I really would like to see Malcolm Roach at inside linebacker for Texas in the Horns' 3-4 defense with Malik Jefferson moving to OLB in the 3-4 - opposite Breckyn Hager.
DIP #4 ... I think Texas president Greg Fenves wants Charlie Strong to succeed.
DIP #5 ... I know it's getting terrible ratings, but I want to see the movie Masterminds. Anyone seen it? Any good?
