LAMM AT LARGE: Urban Meyer should keep his job

LAMM AT LARGE: Urban Meyer should keep his job

I can’t believe I’m defending Urban Meyer. My dislike for him as a man – he’s a great coach, I don’t debate that – is stronger than any coach I’ve crossed paths with in more than 50 years. He’s a liar, self-centered, condescending, arrogant, and an all-around jerk. But . . . man, it hurts…Continue Reading »

LAMM AT LARGE: How about some love for Thor?

LAMM AT LARGE: How about some love for Thor?

You do know Brooks Koepka – that’s K-e-p-t ka – won the PGA Championship, don’t you? I understand why you may be confused. Koepka’s victory was lost in the incredible outpouring of love, awe, disbelief, excitement and significance of Tiger Woods’ performance. Woods’ closing 64 looked like 2001 was back.

By DAVID LAMM World No. 1 Dustin Johnson is hot. World No. 2 Justin Thomas is, too. But who couldn’t see Rory McIlroy, Jason Day, John Rahm or Justin Rose winning this week’s PGA Championship at Bellerive Golf Club in St. Louis? I haven’t even mentioned this year’s major winners: Patrick Reed, Brooks Koepka and…Continue Reading »

LAMM AT LARGE: Getting away with stupid

LAMM AT LARGE: Getting away with stupid

By DAVID LAMM Thoughts about the NFL: • In what world is stupid accepted as standard operating procedure? The NFL world. Most of you think my saying that makes me stupid, and I understand.

Lamm at Large: Taking a break

By: David Lamm When is the madness going to stop? When will some people and so many in the media quit ruining the lives of people – mainly white celebrities – because of something they said or tweeted when they were teenagers –kids! –years ago.

Lamm at Large: How much better can Blake Bortles be?

By DAVID LAMM Seldom does a day go by that someone doesn’t ask me about Blake Bortles. How much better CAN he get? How much better WILL he get? Do I expect him to improve? People still talk about Bortles as if he’s a young, aspiring quarterback. Truth is, entering his fifth year with 60…Continue Reading »
