Ahmed Chowdhury Asks: I have 2 questions. My 1st question is, coach Tom Herman believes Texas Football is going into right direction. Do you believe the same way as coach Tom Herman does? My 2nd question is, Ohio State lost 2 games and some people thinks they don't have a chance to make the College Football Playoffs. For this week they are ranked Number 11 in College Football Rankings, and my question is, if they win their last 3 games (Possibly wins the Big 10 Championship), and top teams loses their games, do you think Ohio State would be able to make the College Football Playoffs? I am sure they don't have to worry about not having a quality win because last week they defeated Penn State. Any opinions on 2 of my questions? Thanks.
I have no interest how well, or not, that Texas football gets or doesn't get. It''s good for the Big 12 if all their teams are competitive nationally but that will never occur either.
Aaron Mullins Asks: Any chance you will do one of you ringside shows in Alabama?
I'd love to some day but likely not in 2017.
Ahmed Chowdhury Asks: I know your not into politics like myself however, I want to get your opinion as 1 of the citizen of America. Many Americans who either lost their jobs or chose to not work over the last few years, they are either looking for a job now, or they are lazy to find a job. I know the country is paying money to fix streets, schools, etc with our tax money that we pay. I know to become a President it is not a easy job, and President Obama did his best during his time. As of last weekend, Donald Trump created 1 million jobs after he became our President about 7 months ago. Do you think America needs to be little bit strict on their policy on who to have benefits from the government, and who should not? I think in order for them to get the benefits they should a legal proof. Now a days people lie to get what they want, how do I know? I saw it and heard it. Thanks.
If you know that I am not one to pontificate about politics then why do you think I'll answer this one? Same goes for religion. Plus, you can't possibly think that I can or will answer the amount/volume of questions that you submit. Thanks.
Ahmed Chowdhury Asks: How much pressure do you think both Lincoln Riley and Tom Herman are in to not only succeed for their team, as well as their teams have to carry the load for the Big 12 Conference? Other conferences such as SEC, ACC, PAC 10, and Big 10, they have more than 3 or 4 contenders to succeed. As for Big 12, its both Texas and Oklahoma who would have to carry the load for their conference. Thanks.
Oklahoma State and others might disagree with you but both Riley and Herman are rising stars . The Big 12 isn;t a two team league.
Ahmed Chowdhury Asks: ESPN is reporting about Football and brain injuries. My question is, how do you prevent brain injuries while someone is playing Football? I think helmet to helmet hit needs to be prevented, and make the game as safe as possible. Thanks.
Rules, equipment, and enhanced training will help but not prevent these CTE issues completely. Risky business.
Hotty Toddy Asks: Regarding the Chiesa-Lee fight, do you think it was the right move for referee Yamasaki to stop the fight despite Chiesa not tapping out?
It was a judgment call and fighter safety always has to be the top priority.
the tennessee stud Asks: JR now that Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregoe is official, whats your prediction for this fight? In pro wrestling you could sometimes see a bad matchup stylewise do big money, but Im not sure how seeing Mayweather run from Conor and win every round helps either boxing or MMA. Will you pay $100 to watch this on ppv 8/26?
This event will easily go north of 2M PPV buys IMO. I will watch it in some form likely, with others. I bought many Tyson fights knowing they would Ikely end in less than 3 minutes.
Ahmed Chowdhury Asks: There are some people who questions Lebron James overall NBA Finals losses, they always forget his performances during playoffs. People mentions that he is not going to be as better than Michael Jordan, but these people forgot how much value Lebron James has for his team, instead of comparing, they should appreciate what he has done in the NBA. He took an average Cleveland Cavaliers to the NBA Finals back in 2007. He had an insane performances in the 2015, NBA Finals, and also when he won the NBA Championship in 2016. I have nothing against Michael Jordan, and I do believe that Michael Jordan was a great player, but Lebron James and his value for his team it speaks for itself. To me, Cleveland Cavaliers needs Lebron James which is more than Lebron James who needs the Cleveland Cavaliers. Lebron James has nothing left to prove, because he was supposed to win a Championship for the city of Cleveland, and he full-filled his accomplishments and dreams. Any Thoughts? Thanks. Have A Great Weekend.
This topic is worn out and irrelevant IMO. It's a matter that discussion can't solve.
Hotty Toddy Asks: Do you believe Demetrious Johnson is the best pound-4-pound champion in mixed martial arts right now? I mean his winning streak and his catch wrestling & submission abilities tell it all. I feel like he DOESN'T get the credit he deserves in MMA.
I don't have the skill set to make this an educated call but Johnson is an amazing fighter without question. Is the he best pound for pound fighter in UFC? That's certainly possible.
Ahmed Chowdhury Asks: I am sure you heard about the news coach, Bob Stoops is retiring. As a fan of Texas Football I want to congrats coach, Bob Stoops for his success in Oklahoma. Did you have a chance to congrats him for his success as a coach? Thanks.
Come on, man, of course I heard about Coach Stoops retiring. I live in Norman plus Bob is a close friend. Steer fans (Texas) should be relieved.
