The Morning Miller On Sports For January 31, 2012
The Morning Miller On Sports For January 31, 2012

You Should Know – People close to Peyton Manning don’t think he can resume his NFL career.  According to Yahoo Sports!, the nerves in Manning’s arm aren’t healing quickly enough.  Neck fusion surgery forced Manning out of action for the 2011 season.  The Indianapolis Colts have until March to choose if Manning receives his $28 million option bonus.  The Peyton Manning saga will continue for another day.

Super Bowl Note – New England tight end Rob Gronkowski did not participate in Monday’s practice, the first of Super Bowl week.  He suffered the high ankle sprain in the AFC Championship Game.

Jaguars Bite of the Day – Jacksonville offensive guard Will Rackley gave an interview with The Express-Times, in Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania.  For the Lehigh University graduate, he realized he had finally made it to the NFL when he stepped out onto Heinz Field in Week Six.  On the 2012-13 season, Rackley, going into his second year, stated, “I’m really looking forward to the progress we’re going to have next year.  I think we’re going to do some big things.”

College Football Nugget – In a statement Monday, Joe Paterno’s son, Scott, said the family plans on selling DVD copies of the Penn State coach’s memorial service.  Proceeds from the sales will go to charity.  Last week, the memorial drew 12,000 people to the school’s arena.

Broadcasting Note – Take an inside look as to what Radio Row in Indianapolis will be like this week.  For the first time, Radio Row will give non-media personnel the opportunity to attend Wednesday through Friday to mingle and meet celebrities. 

Strange Thought of the Day – Can we say that Shaun White owns the sport of snowboarding?

Tweet of the last 24 hours – @vitostellino (Vito Stellino, of the Florida Times-Union) “If the writers had a vote, Indy would be in regular Super Bowl rotation.  Logistics couldn’t be better.”

Stat(s) of the Day – Phoenix Suns guard Steve Nash has averaged a double-double (points, assists) six out of his last seven seasons.  Currently, he leads the NBA in assists per game, with 9.9.  Nash is 37.

Link of the DayThis little piece made me smile.  Older brother Peyton used to pick on little brother Eli.  It forced Eli to learn the 12 SEC schools.

Video of the DayBlake Griffin is trying to perfect the throw-dunk.  Here, Oklahoma City’s Kendrick Perkins is the spectator on the court.

Question of the Day – Mario Cristobal decided to stay at FIU instead of becoming the head football coach for Rutgers.  Does Cristobal understand he’ll be coaching at a better football school than Rutgers or FIU in a few years, if he so pleases?
