Golic Visits Saints Camp

Mike Golic experienced NFL training camps as a player during his nine-year professional career with the Houston Oilers, Philadelphia Eagles and Miami Dolphins. He’s experienced them as a member of the media as an analyst for ESPN and a co-host of ESPN Radio’s Mike and Mike sports talk show. This week, he’s watching it as a parent, as his son, Mike Golic Jr., tries to make the roster with the New Orleans Saints.

The younger Golic, who played collegiately at Notre Dame, went undrafted in 2013 but signed as a free agent with the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was cut late that August, though, and didn’t make the regular season roster.

Last May, Golic was given another opportunity when he was signed by the Saints, but again he didn’t make the team. He signed with the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League and went through training camp, but couldn’t land a spot on that roster, either.

The Saints, though, must have seen something they liked from Golic last summer at training camp, because he’s back at The Greenbrier this year, playing both guard and center and trying to find a roster spot.

“I’m glad he’s getting to play center,” said the older Golic just after practice Thursday at The Greenbrier Sports Performance Center. “He’s playing center and guard, which makes him versatile, and it’s fun to watch. I think he’s doing well. It’s little things that you pick up here and there and have to get better at — whether it’s a hand placement or a step here. But it’s just fun to watch.

“It will be good to watch the scrimmage, when they really get after it, to get more of that team element and away from one-on-ones when you know it’s a pass rush or a run. A scrimmage tells a little more.”

Golic’s eyes aren’t always focused on his 25-year-old son. Even though he’s technically on vacation, he admitted it’s hard for him to totally toss his analyst hat to the side.

“I watch it as a parent watching his son realize his dream,” said Golic, who also played at Notre Dame and was a 10th round draft pick in 1985. “So there’s that part of it. But the analytical side of it never leaves. I was a former defensive (tackle), so I’m watching Rob (Ryan’s) defense and seeing what they do and watching the o-line and seeing what they do.

“I’m a big technique guy. I like to watch a lot of how people move hands and feet. I don’t watch what most people watch. I rarely watch the ball. By watching how the play’s developing, I know where the ball is going to end up. So I like to watch everything leading up to that point.”

670 The Score morning host Mike Mulligan is being awarded the Father Finnegan Memorial Award from Loyola University Chicago this weekend, and some of his colleagues congratulated him on the air Friday morning.

The award is given “in recognition of outstanding humanitarianism and service to youth through athletics”. Mulligan — a 1984 graduate of Loyola University Chicago — will receive the award Saturday during the Loyola Athletics Hall of Fame ceremony during a game against George Mason.

“Tremendous award,” co-host David Haugh said. “Proud moment for the show. Proud moment for you family.”

“They’re giving me an award for correctly picking the Super Bowl on September 8th,” Mulligan joked.

“That is fantastic,” Laurence Holmes said, while his co-host, Dan Bernstein, continued to say “wow”. “Congratulations. You shouldn’t be embarrassed. You should be proud.”

“I’m being celebrated for being old,” Mully joked.

“That’s not what that award says,” countered Holmes. “It says something completely different.”

The Mully & Haugh host eventually admitted he was appreciative of the award bestowed upon him by his alma mater.

“It’s a good thing. I’m very moved by it. Sister Jean will be there,” Mully said. “She has a book coming out with — I think — Seth Davis.”

Colin Cowherd: Tony Romo Regressing Because He Loves Golf

“I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

The performance of CBS Sports NFL analyst Tony Romo has been a hot-button topic in sports media circles, especially after a widely-regarded lackluster performance during the AFC Championship Game. Colin Cowherd believes he knows why Romo has regressed.

During an episode of The Colin Cowherd Podcast, the sports radio host claimed golf is the reason behind Romo’s regression.

“Romo wants to be on the Tour. He literally wants to be on the Tour,” Cowherd said. “And what’s the first thing Aaron Rodgers does in the off-season? He goes and golfs, he loves it. Both, by the way, great golfers, especially Romo. But I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

“Tony wants to be on the PGA Tour — but he likes the paycheck from CBS.”

Cowherd also added he hasn’t hired potential employees in the past if they told him they loved golf during the interview process, saying he has a theory that as men age they “get addicted to golf”.

“They’re on PGATour.com, they’re putting in the backyard, they’re thinking about it at work, they’re scheduling a trip to Scotland and they lose sight of their other job,” Cowherd said.
