The Morning Miller On Sports For January 30, 2012

You Should Know – In last night’s NFL Pro Bowl, the AFC beat the NFC, 59-41.  During the game’s opening drive, fans booed loudly because of the players’ lack of effort.  Play improved prior to halftime and carried into the third quarter.  Following a performance with six catches for 176 yards and four scores, Miami Dolphins receiver Brandon Marshall won the game’s MVP.  A near-highlight was Saints quarterback Drew Brees missing a dropkick extra point in the second half.  For Jacksonville, running back Maurice Jones-Drew, who has been voted into the last three Pro Bowls, touched the ball eight times for 79 total yards. 

Jaguars Bite of the Day – The Denver Broncos hired former Jags strength and conditioning coach Luke Richesson.  He’ll perform the same duties in Denver.  The Denver Post compiled mounting evidence that altitude has played a significant role in the Broncos’ “decade-long trend of miserable, late-season fades.”

College Football Nugget – On SI.com, Jeff Weachter, high school coach of five-star defensive end recruit Noah Spence, spoke of Urban Meyer’s impact as a recruiter.  “He’s a relentless recruiter.  I mean he is relentless.  When Urban puts his mind to it that he wants a kid, he doesn’t break the rules, but he’s going to pull out all the stops.”

Broadcasting NoteFor Saturday’s UFC on FOX 2, Lavar “Big” Johnson was awarded the Knockout of the Night.  The victim, Joey Beltran, didn’t seem to enjoy those brutal uppercuts.

Strange Thought of the Day – What happens if the Indianapolis Colts trade the No. 1 overall pick and keep Peyton Manning?

Tweet of the last 24 hours – @GolfDigestMag (Golf Digest) “‘You must work very hard to become a natural golfer.’ – Gary Player”

Stat(s) of the Day – Novak Djokovic is coming off one of the best single-season performances in tennis history – 70-6, 25-1 in Grand Slams.  Djokovic beat Rafael Nadal in the Australian Open final over a span of almost six hours.  Nadal has lost three straight Grand Slam finals to Djokovic.

Link of the DaySports Illustrated senior writer Jon Wertheim reviews Novak Djokovic’s match for the ages.

Video of the DayLeBron James jumped over John Lucas III for an alley-oop dunk.  Maybe King James should ride his bike to the arena more often.  Oh, and Miami won over Chicago, 97-93.

Question of the Day – On Sunday, the New England Patriots had 25,000 fans show up to Gillette Stadium to send off the team.  If the Pats win the Super Bowl, how many fans attend the victory parade?
