Morning Miller On Sports - April 5, 2012 | HS Sports
Jaguars Bite of the Day – After experiencing trouble resting, sleeping and eating without getting nauseous, Jaguars linebacker Clint Session needed proactive treatment. The reason…three concussions suffered last season. A recommendation by his agent had Session enrolling in a concussion treatment program at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. He visited the center three times during the offseason. And Session felt well enough to lift twice on Monday, the day the Jaguars’ offseason conditioning program began. “They (UPMC) were able to get me back to being a normal human,” said Session.
Stat(s) of the Day – In the Jacksonville Suns’ season opener Thursday night, they allowed three runs in shutting out the Huntsville Stars, 2-0. Suns pitcher Joey O’Gara gave up three hits in 6 2/3 innings. Jacksonville will play the second of 10 consecutive home games on Friday.
You Should Know – Arkansas football coach Bobby Petrino was placed on paid administrative leave Thursday evening. Petrino, who crashed his motorcycle on Sunday, failed to disclose to school officials that he was riding with a female employee half his age. Petrino said he wanted to protect his family and keep an “inappropriate relationship from becoming public.” Arkansas athletic director Jeff Long learned of the female passenger when Petrino called him minutes before the police report was released. The 51-year-old Petrino, who suffered four broken ribs, cracked neck vertebra and cuts on his face, was not wearing a helmet.
College Nugget – Five-star basketball recruit Anthony Bennett made Oregon one of his five finalists earlier this week. Last season, the senior forward from Nevada’s Findlay Prep dominated competition. He averaged 14.5 points and 7.7 rebounds per game. His other options are: Kentucky, Florida, Washington and UNLV. Bennett’s former teammate, Dominic Artis, has already committed to the Oregon Ducks.
Broadcasting Note – On last night’s “Inside the NBA,” Shaq delivered harsh criticism for Stan Van Gundy’s comments on Dwight Howard wanting him fired. Maybe now, Shaq and Dwight can agree on something.
Strange Thought of the Day – Maybe Orlando Magic coach Stan Van Gundy will soon be working with his brother Jeff in television.
Tweet of the last 24 hours – @Corey_Clark (Corey Clark, covers Florida State athletics for the Tallahassee Democrat) “James Wilder, Jr. is back on the football team. University announced the RB has been reinstated.”
Link of the Day – Sports Illustrated wants to know who the best No. 1 overall NFL draft pick is. According to SI, it’s John Elway, Peyton Manning or Bruce Smith.
Video of the Day – Doesn’t look like new Dodgers owner Magic Johnson is thrilled to be at the ballpark.
Question of the Day – Lee Westwood, a former world No. 1, is definitely in the grouping of “best golfer without a major.” Can the first-round Masters leader keep it up for three more rounds and forever avoid that title?
