The Morning Miller On Sports For January 26, 2012 | HS Sports
You Should Know – The Indianapolis Colts named Chuck Pagano, formerly the Baltimore Ravens defensive coordinator, as its head coach on Wednesday. Pagano, 51, will officially be introduced today. He’s been an assistant with Baltimore since 2008, but last year was his first as the defensive coordinator. The main question continues to be: do the Colts keep Peyton Manning? Sounds like owner Jim Irsay will have a decision around the middle of February.Jaguars Bite of the Day – After Senior Bowl practice Wednesday, the Jags spoke to former Florida Gators cornerback Janoris Jenkins. He transferred to North Alabama following two marijuana-related arrests in three months last year. It’s not if Jenkins will get drafted in the first round, it’s more like where. College Football Nugget – Remember when the oak trees at Toomer’s Corner (Auburn University) were poisoned by an Alabama fan during the 2009 season? If those trees die, Auburn will replace them so fans can celebrate around them after Tiger victories. Broadcasting Note – The new Jacksonville Suns play-by-play broadcaster Steve Kolbe arrives in town today. He spent the last 14 years as the NHL’s Washington Capitals broadcaster. Kolbe will be on my show at 5:45 p.m. today. Suns fans can meet him at Friday’s Hot Stove League Social from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Baseball Grounds. Strange Thought of the Day – If Pau Gasol hadn’t been traded to the Lakers from the Memphis Grizzlies nearly four years ago, would he have anywhere close to the exposure he has currently? Yeah, it’s not all that strange… Tweet of the last 24 hours – @PaulPabst (Paulie Pabst of the Dan Patrick Show) “Celebs go to the hospital for “exhaustion”…everyone else takes a nap.” Stat of the Day – The brother coaches – Bob, Mike and Mark Stoops – will make, for the 2012 football season, almost $6 million in salary. Bob, Oklahoma’s head coach, agreed to a seven-year, $34.5 million contract back in September. On Tuesday, Mike, the Sooners defensive coordinator, signed a three-year deal which will pay him $600,000 annually. Mark, Florida State’s defensive coordinator, landed a one-year extension a week ago worth $375,000 for next year. Link of the Day – Gregg Doyel, of CBS Sports, calls out Dana White and the UFC. Video of the Day – Did not realize that golfer Ben Crane had a gymnastics background. Question of the Day – In a recent interview, former NBA player Robert Horry said Lakers head coach Phil Jackson created the feud between Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe Bryant. What would have happened if Jackson hadn’t done such? One NBA title? Zero? Top Miller Videos - J.U.
