Like father like son. Former UCLA Forward Shareef O’Neal is transferring to his dad’s alma mater, LSU. Shareef will play for his father, Shaq’s old school LSU. In an ESPN article, Shareef said that the death of his father’s old teammate, Kobe Bryant, made “him focus more.” This is after Shareef was diagnosed with “a right anomalous coronary artery and undergoing open-heart surgery to correct the issue” thus missing his first season on campus in Los Angeles. O’Neal was averaging over two points and almost three rebounds per game before his move. Shareef was ranked as the no. 32 prospect in the 2018 ESPN 100.
What if we took a week during the college football season to have teams from the SEC play a team with the same standing a year ago in the Big 12 like in college basketball and have them play during a week of primarily non-conference games. Here’s what it would look like:
Oklahoma at. LSU
We are going to rotate who gets home field advantage but the reigning national champs have to start it with home field in a rematch of the CFP Semifinal.
Alabama at. Baylor
Will moving on from Matt Rhule do Baylor any favors? I don’t think so. Alabama would defintely be favored in this game.
Texas at. Florida
A match up of blue bloods in the swamp will be a defensive battle.
Auburn at. Oklahoma State
Auburn would have a great chance in this game to notch a key non-conference win in this one.
Kansas State at. Tennessee
This would be a fun game between two fairly new head coaches at the FBS level.
Texas A&M at. Iowa State
In a match up of high powered offenses, who would get the defensive stop down the stretch to break the game open.
West Virginia at. South Carolina
Two different offenses collide in an unusual match up.
Kentucky at. TCU
With a receiver at QB, Kentucky would have to find out a way to get the ball past a pretty good horned frogs defense.
Texas Tech at. Mississippi State
New Mississippi State Head Coach Mike Leach faces his former team, Texas Tech.
Ole Miss at. Kansas
Ole Miss is more talented than Kansas, but the rebels do face an old enemy in Kansas Head Coach Les Miles.

For a third time this postseason, the Kansas City Chiefs trailed big in the postseason. It took three clutch drives by QB Patrick Mahomes and three stout defensive series by the Chiefs defense to seal it. They proved that they could win on the biggest stage even if they were down by ten entering the fourth quarter. Congratulations to the Chiefs and everyone involved in the organization.
San Francisco 49ers vs. Kansas City Chiefs
Hard Rock Stadium (Miami,FL)
Sunday February 2, 5:30 PM CT
Though the Chiefs are favored in this game, the 49ers have been the best team in football this season. Let’s take a look at how each position battle fares. The Chiefs have the 49ers quarterback wise as Patrick Mahomes is a top five NFL QB and Jimmy Garappolo is not even a top ten QB. At running back the 49ers have em. At tight end, it is an even match up as the game’s two best tight ends will square off in Kansas City’s Travis Kelce and San Francisco’s George Kittle. The offensive line battle is even. Wide Receivers are owned by Kansas City. On defense just overall the 49ers are so much better than the Chiefs are. This is a fifty-fifty game so I’m going to go with the 49ers. Prediction:49ers 34, Chiefs 33
I am so sad right now because of the death of one of the greatest to ever lace em up has died suddenly in a helicopter crash. Kobe Bryant died Sunday in a helicopter crash along with eight others (including his daughter Gigi). Kobe brought so much and I am sad that he is gone. It seems like his twenty year career ended yesterday. It seems like his final game (where he scored 60 POINTS) was yesterday. Rest In Peace Kobe. You will forever be a legend.
