The HBS: Deflategate & Super Bowl XLIX Preview
By: Mike Asti and George Gerbo
Instead of talking about the great game that Super Bowl XLIX is all but assured to be, Mike “the Buzz-saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo are here to discuss balls. Yup, that was a joke we couldn’t avoid…
In all seriousness, “Deflategate” as it’s being so perfectly referred to, has taken over the news, both sports and otherwise. Is this as big of a deal as it has been made out to be? Who was more believable in their pro wrestling style promo press conferences, Tom Brady or Bill Belichick? What punishment should be handed down by the NFL to the Patriots? Are there any non asinine reasonable explanations to explain Deflategate? What if any advantage, if any, would a deflated football give a team?
Marshawn Lynch is only here so he doesn’t get fined. Does “Beast Mode” owe the media more than he gives them? Will his antics cause the NFL to adjust their rules for players dealing with the media in the future? Hey media, Marshawn is simply trolling you.
Shockingly, there is also a game to be played. What are some of the X-factors of this Super Bowl matchup? Does Brady or Belichick need another championship for their legacy? Which quarterback needs to play better for his to win? Mike and George make their final Super Bowl XLIX picks!
For a non football related topic, has winning his 1,000th game made Coach K the greatest college basketball coach of all-time?
