After two weeks off (apologies please), Couch Side host Wade McMillin welcomes in guest host Chuck Constantino to discuss the NBA playoffs, the Seattle Seahawks quarterback competition and Kyrie Irving winning the NBA’s Rookie of the Year award.

The 6-foot-10 Cody, Wyo., native talks about his playing days at the University of Wyoming, his future and what’s ahead for the Mountain West Conference.
Is anyone (besides me) watching the early bowl games? You know, the ones that ESPN is careful to selectively telecast through a limited number of cameras and no blimp shots in order to hide the fact that the stadium, like the pessimist’s glass of water, isn’t just half empty. It’s dead … as a doornail. No overhead view revealing the nothingness below. Cameras only pointing at the 50-yard-line crowd, purposefully avoiding shots of the empty upper deck. Sad. Very said.
Or is it?
Seventy-two teams make a bowl game. No doubt, this explains why lifelong Wyoming Cowboy fans are crazy enough to drive for two full days to Albuquerque to endure a lashing by the mighty Owls of Temple, only to turn around and drive straight home. Attendance: 25, 762. Payout: $750,000 per team.
At least the Utah State Aggie fans had the chance to drive only five hours up to Boise to watch their beloved WAC also-rans lose to the Mid-American Conference runner-up Ohio Bobcats, coached by deposed Husker headman Frank Solich. Attendance: 28, 076. Payout: $750,000 per team.
And finally, let us not forget the always-competitive Beef O’Brady’s Bowl (formerly the St. Petersburg Bowl), which the Thundering Herd of Marshall won over the might-as-well-have-been-playing-at-home Florida International Panthers. You remember these guys … they were on the receiving end of a literal beating at the hands of the Miami Hurricane-Convicts a few years back. Attendance: 20,072. Payout: $1 million per team.
Let’s compare these three blockbusters (hey, whatever happened to the Blockbuster Bowl?) to say, the granddaddy of ‘em all, the Rose Bowl Game, presented by Vizio. Jan. 2. Oregon versus Wisconsin. Pac 12 versus Big 10. Savvy versus strength. Two top 10 teams. Attendance: 100,00-plus. Payout: $22.3 million per team.

The Brewers will go without their best starter, Brandon Woodruff, for approximately six weeks after he suffered an oblique strain Sunday. Woodruff’s absence could make it all the more imperative for the Brewers to add a starter before the July 31 trade deadline, but general manager David Stearns conveyed a lack of urgency on the…
Marlins right-handers Trevor Richards and Sergio Romo are drawing interest in advance of the trade deadline, according to Joe Frisaro of MLB.com. Neither player looks like a substantial difference-maker, but there is appeal in both cases. The 26-year-old Richards’ main selling point is likely his affordable control. He’s on a minimum salary now, won’t be… […]
A few late-breaking injury notes from Tuesday night’s action… The Yankees won an instant classic over the Twins, but New York received unwelcome news immediately after the game. Catcher Gary Sanchez, who left early, could be on his way to the IL with a groin injury, manager Aaron Boone told Bryan Hoch of MLB.com and…
Berry Tramel of The Oklahoman makes a case for the Thunder to trade Chris Paul to the Wolves for Andrew Wiggins. Paul would elevate the team’s immediate ceiling in Minnesota, providing Karl-Anthony Towns with arguably the best point guard he’s played with at the professional level. Tramel believes OKC may provide Wiggins with an environment […]
Much attention has been given to all the picks that the Clippers sent to the Thunder in the Paul George trade but the franchise also received Shai Gilgeous-Alexander in addition to Danilo Gallinari. The Italian forward has just one season left on his deal but Gilgeous-Alexander is expected to remain with the franchise long-term and become […]

He went to camp […]

Broncos Broncos WR Courtland Sutton showed Denver enough as a rookie that the team felt comfortable trading away Demaryius Thomas midseason. But when Emmanuel Sanders went down with an injury as well, Sutton was thrust into the No. 1 receiver role before he was ready and struggled. Now heading into his second year, the Broncos […] The post AFC West Notes: Br […]
