Eighteen years after taking the head job at Baylor and calling
his shot, Scott Drew led his team to a resounding win against a
formerly undefeated Gonzaga squad to claim the Bears' first men's college
basketball national title.
The Jets and new coach Robert Saleh are set on
taking the future of their franchise with the number 2 pick in the coming
NFL draft. Likely, that means BYU QB Zach Wilson.
The real winner? Darnold. He’s 23 years old,
getting coached by offensive genius Joe Brady (instead of Adam Gase), and
throwing the ball to Christian McCaffrey and DJ Moore. If there was ever a
perfect opportunity to resurrect a career, this is it.
Fun fact: The Jets have now traded each of their
2013-2018 1st round picks. Not great.
