The glitch was on the league not the team lol
More on today’s mock draft technical glitch: The Bengals didn’t do anything wrong; wasn’t their fault. But the glitch resulted in a two-and-a-half minute delay, per source.
All these other tweets are comical though
Text from a GM during this mock draft “there are early communication issues because 32 of us GMs are on conference call and we didn’t hit mute. Sounds awful”
I was on the phone with a head coach talking about the mock draft today and he was losing his mind because his Internet went down...apparently his young children were all on their iPads using up the band width. “ everybody get off the Internet”-in loud dad voice.
I hung up.

Retired NBA player Andre Miller had a memorable 17-year career in the league. He finished his playing days ranked eleventh all-time in assists and was still averaging double figures in scoring at 35 years old. Cleveland drafted him in the first round in 1999 after a first-team All-American season at the University of Utah. Could the same results have been achieved if Miller attended an HBCU? Because he wanted to.
Miller tells HBCU Gameday that while growing up in Los Angeles he dreamed of attending an HBCU. He was first exposed to the culture during an Upward Bound camp when he was in middle school. His recruiting offers were far and few in between in high school and the University of Utah was the first to offer him a scholarship.
"I wanted to go to an HBCU, I wanted to be in a fraternity, I wanted to play basketball, but those things didn't happen. I had to take the opportunity with the scholarship and go to Utah," Miller said.

Condolences to family, friends, Tenn St and Alabama St communities
Former #Seahawks QB Tarvaris Jackson died last night in a car accident in Alabama, a spokesperson for his employer Tennessee State tells me. Jackson, 36, was TSU’s QB coach. Along with Seattle, he also played for the #Vikings and #Bills.https://twitter.com/RapSheet/status/1249692214713880576

Yes, he deserves it. However if he don't STOP milking the clock when we get leads.........................
Why are we dribbling out the shot clock with 3 mins left and not running an offensive set???

On Saturday evening, ESPN's Adam Rittenberg reported that Howard University is hiring Florida tight ends coach Larry Scott as its next head coach. Scott has been on staff at Florida for two years, joining Dan Mullen when he arrived in 2018.
Though Scott spent his last two seasons as an assistant coach at Florida he does have experience as a head coach previously. He served as the interim coach at Miami in 2015, putting together a 4-2 record while in charge.
He was previously working as the tight ends coach and offensive coordinator at Tennessee prior to his arrival at Florida. Mullen brought him aboard the UF staff when Tennessee head coach Butch Jones was fired.https://247sports.com/college/florida/Article/Florida-Gators-Football-Howard-to-hire-UF-tight-ends-coach-Larry-Scott-as-head-coach-143206474/

Interesting that he didn't make any AP All-America team last year when he led the nation with 11 INTs.

NBA superstar Stephen Curry is in DC today for the announcement that he will sponsor Howard Univ. men’s and women’s golf programs for the next six years.
HU athletic director called it “one of the most generous gifts” in the school’s history. https://twitter.com/CandaceDBuckner/status/1163454837729714177Howard University to add golf teams after receiving sponsorship from NBA star Stephen Curry
Following a January screening of “Emanuel,” a documentary about the deadly 2015 shooting of nine black worshipers at a church in Charleston, S.C., a throng of Howard University students jockeyed for handshakes and selfies with the film’s executive producer, NBA star Stephen Curry.
Otis Ferguson, then a junior at Howard, hung back for a moment before catching the ear of the Golden State Warriors guard.
“Hey Steph!” Ferguson called out. “Let’s get in a round of golf before you leave.”
It was a well-calculated shot: In addition to being a three-time NBA champion, two-time MVP and perhaps the best shooter ever, Curry is a passionate golfer.
Ferguson didn’t hit the links with Curry, but they did engage in a brief conversation about their mutual love of the sport. In fact, Ferguson said, he had turned down an offer to play collegiately to attend Howard, which, like many historically black colleges and universities, doesn’t have a golf team.
That chat made such an impression on Curry that he is returning to Washington on Monday to announce that he is sponsoring the creation of men’s and women’s golf teams at Howard — bringing competitive golf to the university for the first time in decades.https://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/nba/howard-university-to-add-golf-teams-after-receiving-sponsorship-from-nba-star-stephen-curry/2019/08/18/f063dfde-c041-11e9-9b73-fd3c65ef8f9c_story.html
