Hottest Sports Stories for Friday, Nov. 18

Tim Tebow Tebowed all over the New York Jets, Major League Baseball get a whole lot more wild and we have yet another sordid tale that will churn your stomach. 

Welcome to the Daily Radar, if we were a restaurant we would be that hole in the wall that regulars rave about, or get stomach pains from. Leave your comments in the place marked comments.

Let's Dish. 

In this edition:

 

TIM TEBOW

That headline is appropriately marked because by everyone's retelling of Thursday night's game, Tim Tebow walked onto the field and turned into some amalgamation of Michael Jordan, Wayne Gretzky and Bo Jackson. Can we concentrate on more important things like how badly Mark Sanchez is at playing football?

Question on Everybody's Mind: Tim Tebow, Tebow, Tim Tebow?

Our Take: You aren't listening. Mark Sanchez went out and dropped a fat one in the middle of the field for four quarters. The fact that he was allowed to do that in plain sight is amazing. Tebow then gets a wide open run at the end of the game and he is once again the giver of gifts and the blesser of blessings. 

Hype Meter: 5 out of 5 Pro Stars

Does it bother anyone else that Tebow will one day be inducted into the Hall of Fame with about 45 career completions? Just checking.

SYRACUSE HAS SCANDAL BREWING OF THEIR OWN

Sorry to be the booger in the punch bowl. We will get back to railing on overpaid athletes in a second, but we have another college that is being hit with some sick allegations at the moment. Bernie Fine is under investigation for molesting ball boys in the 1980s.

Question on Everybody's Mind: What do we know?

Our Take: Nothing yet. The investigation is still in its very early stages and all we have is the word of the alleged victims and a vehement backing of Jim Boeheim defending his assistant coach. 

Hype Meter: 5 out of 5 Please Don't Be Trues 

You can be sure that Syracuse will get the full Penn State treatment the second that Fine is charged with anything. That will be the second that Boeheim will be looking for a time machine, preferably one that doesn't need to be driven to 88 miles per hour.

Those nuts over at MLB headquarters are getting pretty wild and crazy at the moment. The Houston Astros moved leagues and we will now get two extra wild card teams. The news just makes me want to dance

More changes to make MLB better

Question on Everybody's Mind: Is this a good thing?

Our Take: If you are a fan of things that are awesome, it is. We will now have wall-to-wall interleague play, two leagues of 15 teams each and more incentive to watch in September with one more open spot for the playoffs for each league. This is like...it makes me feel like...well, I haven't the words so here

Hype Meter: 4 out of 5 Oh Happy Days

While the NBA is crumbling like the New York Jets on Thursday night, Major League Baseball is proving that huge changes can be made while a new CBA gets agreed upon, quietly and smoothly.
