A blog about sports broadcasting from the great state of Florida. They report. I decide.

It's Over

Forget everything I wrote yesterday about the World Series. It's over. The Cardinals may win tonight (not likely), they may win tomorrow night (even less likely), but it's too little too late. I was trying to inject some suspense into the Series, but yes, Agent Smith, I hear the sound of inevitability, and it is the Red Sox being the 2004 World Series Champions. It's a mere formality at this point. Bravo, Boston, you earned it.

Talk about a buzz-kill. After upsetting Florida over the weekend causing the firing of the Florida coach, Mississippi State finally found out today the penalties it will get for Jackie Sherrill's transgressions. It doesn't look good. MSU gets four years of probation, loses 4 scholarships a year for the next two, is banned from bowls this year (as if it makes much of a difference), and loses 11 recruiting trips a year for the next two. It's going to be a while before Sylvester Croom and company will be contending in the SEC West, but once the penalties are lifted, watch out.
