Want season tickets to see last year’s Super Bowl runner-up team? It’ll only cost you a TOTAL of $250

That is not a typo…the L.A. Times’ Arash Markazi tweeted yesterday that the Rams Gameday Pass includes tickets to all 8 homes games for just $31 per ticket this year…a total of $248! For an NFL team that just was in the SUPER BOWL!! Why, again, did the NFL return to L.A.?

  • It’s August, Fall camp for football has just begun…but we saw LIVE Nebrasketball yesterday! What did Robin take away from the 87-56 win over Stella Azzura in Italy?
  • How important is this trip to Italy in establishing an idea of who might be the ‘go-to’ players for the team? Why no Akol Arop for the trip?
  • What did Erik Chinander say yesterday that stood out to Robin?

Is it possible that the Wan’Dale hype could get to Martinez level from last year?

  • Martinez backed up his strong praise by having a great freshman year, and is seen as a Heisman contender this year. But yesterday, we heard from both Chinander and Dicaprio Bootle about how great Wan’Dale has been already at camp, making circus catches and being all around hard to stop
  • Is there any way we are hyping him up too much? Tyjon Lindsey’s hype gives Sorensen a little bit of reserve before he goes on praising Wan’Dale, but to hear him and Mills so talked about was nice…

Nebrasketball gets their Italy trip started with an 87-56 win over Stella Azzura

  • Sip and Jake didn’t get much of a chance to watch it live in progress, but it sounded like it was a decent start to the trip, with some miscommunication and maybe some questionable ball movement at times, but Jervay Green led the way with 15 points, Kevin Cross had 13, and it was pretty even beyond that
  • Also, SONG OF THE DAY: (sponsored by Sartor Hamann Jewelers)

Darrion Daniels has a pretty exciting comparison for Dedrick Mills as a running back

  • Daniels, who transferred from Oklahoma State, said that Mills has been impressive so far, and reminds him of Chris Carson, a former teammate at Okie State who finished 5th last year in the NFL in rushing yards with 1,151 yards and 9 TDs with the Seattle Seahawks. Not too shabby!
  • More from Daniels and other notable quotes from Travis Fisher/Dicaprio Bootle/others
