BYE WEEK BLUES No game recap or post mortem this week. But that didn’t stop the WRNL crew from writing some great football pieces this past week, talking about the downfalls of Campbell’s Novembers and Breece Lightning.
FAR-MABYE-GEDDON A covid outbreak at Kansas State has this weekend’s pivotal game at risk of not being played.

A man who not only taught me to be a better player, but a better person. He watched me play one time and offered me a scholarship! He has trusted me from day 1. Love you Coach P, got your back forever! https://t.co/3U6MnBuA7v— Tyrese Haliburton (@TyHaliburton22) November 16, 2020

BROOOOKLYN As the only Brooklyn Nets fan in the state of Iowa, twitter was very fun for me last night.
Sources: After turning down an extension offer to become the first $50M a year player in league history, James Harden’s message to Houston is clear: Get me to Brooklyn. Rockets and Nets have been in contact, but there’s been no meaningful dialogue. https://t.co/qwJOQOxz5U— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) November 17, 2020
WHAT THE CAP Harden’s cryptic ‘cap’ video had NBA twitter putting on their conspiracy caps trying to determine what Harden meant. For those unaware, cap essentially means bullshit. So ‘no cap’= ‘I’m serious’ ‘cap’ = ‘I’m bullshitting you’
Is Harden saying cap or no cap on the recent rumors?— Sports Illustrated (@SInow) November 17, 2020
You be the judge...

SLITHER SILTHER 4 LIFE WRNL’s very own Jar Lar covered the No. 3 Sigourney-Keota Cobras as they took on No. 1 OA-BCIG in the UNI-Dome. And as always, he took some excellent photos.
ABOUT THAT... Remember when AB signed with the Bucs? didn’t take him long to get settled in with some terrible decisions.
AND THE NUMBER ONE PICK IS Anthony Edwards is certainly in that conversation. Marc Spears with the atypical pre-draft interview.
PRIMETIME KIRK Kirk Cousins secured a rare win on primetime TV against a now injured Nick Foles.
THE FUTURE IS BRIGHT Phoenix went from a 8 seed contender, to a tough team in the NBA’s toughest division yesterday.
98.3 VIBE OF THE WEEK No sleep till James Harden is a Net, and No Sleep till Brooklyn.
