With all of the Charlie Sheen drama this week, I couldn’t help but make Sheen an #SSsports Chat topic. Oh, I’m just kidding. #SSsports attempts to avoid all vapidness whenever possible.
As always, please follow the chat from the Twitter account @SusanShanChat. There is only one requirement: please hashtag all tweets with #SSsports. To find out more about the chat, click here. Also, be sure to check back tomorrow to see if you’ve made the highlights!
For tonight’s #SSsports Twitter Chat, we will discuss the following topics:
1. NFL: The NFL Combine has created some winners and losers in terms of draft stock. WR Julio Jones leads this year’s Combine Risers list with a blazing-fast 4.39 40 while QB Ryan Mallett’s evasiveness and attitude hurt his stock. What are your thoughts on the Combine results thus far? Does Jones deserve to be a top-10 draft pick? Does Mallett deserve to be a second-rounder?
2. NCAA BB: Every year, I say that college basketball can’t get any crazier. And every year, I’m proven wrong. With major conference tournaments about to start, projected NCAA Tournament No. 1 seed BYU suddenly made the decision to dismiss big man Brandon Davies. Ironically, guard Tyshawn Taylor has been reinstated for Kansas just in time for games against ranked opponents in Texas A&M and Missouri. Michigan St. may not make the NCAA Tournament at all, and Texas and Villanova are suffering late-season collapses reminiscent of last season. What are your thoughts on the above issues?
3. NFL: Carson Palmer has continued to demand a trade from the Cincinnati Bengals. He has $80 million in the bank, and doesn’t need another dime from the Bengals in order to live well for the rest of his days. Are the Bengals really so bad that Palmer, who has been nothing but a class act throughout his career, can’t stand to play another game for the organization?
