Mustard Minute: What Do You Say After Completing an 0-19 Season

It was not a good year for Boston College basketball (or football either, but that's a different story). The Eagles became the first team to finish 0-19 in ACC history and the postgame press conference was as depressing as one would think.

Seventh Grader Understands Science Better Than NFL

Sure, the science used in the Wells Report has been destroyed by professors at MIT, Carnegie Mellon and a host of other reputable places but what about a seventh grade science whiz? Ben Goodell (no relation to Roger) of St. Pius V Elementary in Lynn, Mass., took home first prize for his experiment disproving Deflategate. As for the actual case, Mike McCann says Tom Brady has reasons to be optimistic while Sally Jenkins is angry another NFL lawyer lied in open court.

Hot Take Alert

Bernie Lincicome of the Chicago Tribune is not a fan of Stephen Curry. Allow me to quote from the first two grafs of his most recent story: "Let's start with the truth. The 3-point shot was created for people who couldn't play basketball. It was made for people who couldn't grow tall enough, dribble well enough, drive hard enough or move fast enough. It was for the last kid picked on the playground. The one who pushed his glasses up his nose. The one who wore black socks in gym class. The 3-point shot was made for you and me."
