Randy McMichael: RG3 Wants Back In The NFL Because He Didn’t Get A Complete Career

“A lot of it was the fall off of how quick it was. I mean, this dude came in as offensive rookie of the year, gets hurt in that Seattle game on that ragged-ass turf, and commences to put all this pressure on himself to come back.”

Robert Griffin III still thinks about playing football. He told KWTX in Waco, Texas that he is “ready to go right now” if an NFL team called in need of a quarterback.

“You know what? Me too, damn it!” Randy McMichael said on 92.9 The Game in Atlanta upon hearing the news Wednesday morning.

While Griffin says he is still working out, he is focused on becoming a better broadcaster and storyteller for ESPN.

That doesn’t surprise McMichael at all. He understands why even with a new, demanding career, it is hard for RG3 to let go of his football dreams.

“A lot of it was the fall off of how quick it was. I mean, this dude came in as offensive rookie of the year, gets hurt in that Seattle game on that ragged-ass turf, and commences to put all this pressure on himself to come back.”

Randy McMichael was drafted in 2002 out of the University of Georgia. He played eleven NFL seasons as a tight end. He said the difference between him and RG3 is that he got to have a “complete” career and walk away when he wanted to.

Griffin won a Heisman Trophy and the aforementioned Offensive Rookie of the Year award, but injuries made it impossible for him to ever fully realize his potential in the NFL. Even as he was auditioning for ESPN and FOX last year, he made it clear that he would head back to the NFL if an opportunity became available.

McMichaels’s radio partner Andy Bunker reminded the audience just how good of a player Griffin was, noting that Baylor hung 75 points on Washington in Griffin’s final game as a Bear.

Griffin has been a big part of ESPN’s football coverage since joining the network, calling college games and making appearances on NFL studio shows. He also was part of ABC’s coverage of the NFL Draft. He is expected to have a similar role in the coming season.

670 The Score morning host Mike Mulligan is being awarded the Father Finnegan Memorial Award from Loyola University Chicago this weekend, and some of his colleagues congratulated him on the air Friday morning.

The award is given “in recognition of outstanding humanitarianism and service to youth through athletics”. Mulligan — a 1984 graduate of Loyola University Chicago — will receive the award Saturday during the Loyola Athletics Hall of Fame ceremony during a game against George Mason.

“Tremendous award,” co-host David Haugh said. “Proud moment for the show. Proud moment for you family.”

“They’re giving me an award for correctly picking the Super Bowl on September 8th,” Mulligan joked.

“That is fantastic,” Laurence Holmes said, while his co-host, Dan Bernstein, continued to say “wow”. “Congratulations. You shouldn’t be embarrassed. You should be proud.”

“I’m being celebrated for being old,” Mully joked.

“That’s not what that award says,” countered Holmes. “It says something completely different.”

The Mully & Haugh host eventually admitted he was appreciative of the award bestowed upon him by his alma mater.

“It’s a good thing. I’m very moved by it. Sister Jean will be there,” Mully said. “She has a book coming out with — I think — Seth Davis.”

Colin Cowherd: Tony Romo Regressing Because He Loves Golf

“I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

The performance of CBS Sports NFL analyst Tony Romo has been a hot-button topic in sports media circles, especially after a widely-regarded lackluster performance during the AFC Championship Game. Colin Cowherd believes he knows why Romo has regressed.

During an episode of The Colin Cowherd Podcast, the sports radio host claimed golf is the reason behind Romo’s regression.

“Romo wants to be on the Tour. He literally wants to be on the Tour,” Cowherd said. “And what’s the first thing Aaron Rodgers does in the off-season? He goes and golfs, he loves it. Both, by the way, great golfers, especially Romo. But I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

“Tony wants to be on the PGA Tour — but he likes the paycheck from CBS.”

Cowherd also added he hasn’t hired potential employees in the past if they told him they loved golf during the interview process, saying he has a theory that as men age they “get addicted to golf”.

“They’re on PGATour.com, they’re putting in the backyard, they’re thinking about it at work, they’re scheduling a trip to Scotland and they lose sight of their other job,” Cowherd said.
