Black Friday Deals For Sports Fans….. and Some UM/OSU Talk

Black Friday has come and gone and I believe we’re all thankful for that. The deals, however, are still prevalent online. Us sports fans have quite a few options when shopping for family, friends, or even ourselves.

  • MLB: 30% off entire site by using code BF30
  • NFL: 30% off entire site by using code BFRIDAY
  • NBA: No code, 30% off entire site
  • Fanatics: Up to 65% off by using code 39SHIP, also free shipping on orders over $39

Definitely some good deals to be had. This makes it very easy for us to stay home and watch football while taking care of that shopping list. Unless, of course, you work in retail or e-commerce distribution………….like yours truly. No complaints for the most part here, as I truly am blessed with having a great job. But I’d really love to watch that Michigan vs Ohio State game today.

The Michigan/OSU game today should be one for the ages. Key words: should be. Can Michigan and Harbaugh get the monkey off their back? Will the Buckeyes defense, especially the secondary, continue to be a sieve? How the Michigan offense decides to attack will be the key to the game. With WRs Donovan Peoples-Jones and Tarik Black, one would think they would spread the field vertically to open up the running game. These guys have the speed to do just that. I’m not the guy calling the plays though.

Ohio State, despite having 2 stellar RBs, have become a one dimensional offense. I’m not sure why or how that happened, but it seems that Dobbins and Weber are being wasted in that backfield. Haskins is a pure stud under center though. If the Wolverines defense doesn’t pressure him early, OSU could open the floodgates. It will be interesting to see how both teams set up their game plan and how they adjust at halftime. Like I said, one for the ages……..hopefully.

Other than that, I can at least look forward to the later games today. Not much to choose from there outside of Boise State vs Utah State. I doubt USC gives Notre Dame any trouble. Assuming Alabama, Clemson, and Notre Dame win today, that coveted 4th spot, currently held by Michigan, could be up for grabs. In the event of a Michigan loss, Georgia and Oklahoma could be getting their hopes up. UCF will continue to be in the conversation, but how much faith will the committee have after they lost Milton yesterday? Time will tell.

So enjoy your day, watch all the football you can. And drink a cold one for me.
