What's next in college football realignment? A common sense plan to bond Group of 5
With the addition of Cincinnati, BYU, UCF and Houston to the Big 12 essentially all close to being completed, the buzz this weekend came from what could be next for the AAC, Mountain West, Conference USA, MAC and Sun Belt. The typical food chain reaction would have the American Athletic Conference add a few teams, deciding whether to attempt to poach the Mountain West or pluck a few members from Conference USA. Do the leaders in collegeThe typical food chain reaction would have the American Athletic Conference add a few teams, deciding whether to attempt to poach the Mountain West or pluck a few members from Conference USA. Then the trickle-down would go from there.
One of the longest-running NFL discussions is about Las Vegas Raiders owner Mark Davis and his haircut. Davis’ haircut has frequently been a subject of discussion, as withof “How does Mark Davis STILL have this haircut!?!” and Rob Riggle’s 2018 “ !” joke at the NFL Honors event. Davis (seen above at a February 2020 boxing match alongside Raiders’ coach Jon Gruden) recently gave a rare extended interview to Andrea Kremer for a segment on HBO’s Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel (premiering Tuesday at 10 p.m. ET/PT on HBO, also available on HBO Max), and Kremer told him that when she told others she was going to interview him, the first thing they told her to ask was “What’s with the hair!” That led to this exchange:
John Mulaney Says He Was 'So Mad' When He Walked in On His Intervention
"I didn't want an intervention. I wanted to continue at that moment in time," the comedian told Seth Meyers "When I opened the door, I knew right away there was an intervention, which, that's how bad of a drug problem I had, that when I opened the door and saw people and thought, 'This is probably an intervention,' " he told the host. "And so you were the first person I saw as I walked through the doorway, where I knew this was an intervention," Mulaney continued. "So I'm like 'Going to dinner with a friend from college, going to dinner with friends and going to dinner with friends.
“It’s the way I cut it!”
“What do you like about it?”
“I just blow-dry it, and it just winds up pretty much hanging like this. I don’t really have to comb it.”
“Do you have a special barber that you go to?”
“Well, there’s one in Palm Desert I go to now [as per, he had been doing that for years even while the Raiders were still in Oakland, and had “three barbers since college”]. But it’s not her fault! It’s me! I force her to do it!”
“Do you have this keen ability to just laugh at yourself, and just not take yourself that seriously?”
“Yeah, absolutely! People ask me where I grew up, and I say, ‘I haven’t.'”
From there, there’s a discussion about Davis growing up around his famed father, Al, and how Al once fired him from being a ball boy. That’s shown in this clip:

If Chase plays well during the regular season, his preseason drops will definitely be forgotten. If he continues to struggle, fans will question Cincinnati's decision to select him fifth overall.

There are some further comments in there on Davis’ relationship with his father and with the Raiders while his father was alive, including “I knew just what his dream was, and that was to build the greatest organization in sports, and I just thought that it would be selfish of me to expect him to teach me along the way.” And the whole segment (which runs about 14 minutes, and is produced by Maggie Burbank) is interesting, and worth a watch. But the dialogue on his hair is perhaps particularly entertaining.
The September episode of Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel premieres Tuesday night at 10 p.m. ET/PT on HBO, and is also available on HBO Max. Other segments this month include one on ultramarathoner and firefighter Jerry Garcia, and an update of their 2019 feature on Adam Schefter.
