Stipe Miocic was the number one contender and very briefly had a title shot all lined up. A lot can happen in 48 hours, unfortunately. We break it all down including how the title shot came to be and how it was ripped away by Fabricio Werdum's subsequent injury pull out. What will become of UFC 196? What is next up for Stipe now that he's in limbo?

It was an entertaining weekend of football with the Broncos and Peyton Manning defeating Tom Brady and the Pats. Or was it the defenses? Coaches? I discuss those matchups as well as the decimation that the Carolina Panthers put on the Cardinals. Finally we discuss the David Blatt firing and the reality of the Cavaliers' championship chances considering the changes.

I didn't feel even remotely badly about leaving the Cavaliers game early on Monday as they got plastered by the Warriors. Even as I was annoyed and embarrassed by them, I'm not ready to draw a bunch of conclusions for the 2016 playoffs just yet. Also, we mark the beginning of Cleveland Indians attendance talk for the 2016 season. We made it to the third week in January. Congrats!

The Cleveland Browns hired Hue Jackson to be the next head coach. Scott Sargent and I had an opportunity to stop by WKYC in Cleveland to discuss on their web show and live on Facebook. In case you missed it, I grabbed the audio for you to save you from looking at our ugly mugs.

Just like we did with Jimmy Haslam's press conference, WFNY's got your back if you missed Hue Jackson's opening remarks. Also Craig talks all over it and about it. Overall, I'd say it was a good press conference. They're all pretty good on day one. Now the real work begins for the Cleveland Browns.

Former WFNY'er week continues with a conversation with TD! The Cleveland Browns hired Hue Jackson in the middle of this podcast and we talked about that. TD also discussed a Browns gaffe that happened to his family personally. To the Browns' credit, they are rectifying it, but it's interesting nonetheless. 

We also talked about the Indians doubling down (for the most part) on what they did a year ago, including their great pitching staff. Will it be enough to get things done?

I have no idea if RG3 is a good player or a good prospect, but I hope he is and I hope the Cleveland Browns want him. He's a dude with physical abilities and at only 25 years old, he'd be a solution, you know, assuming he's a solution. We talk about that and a bunch of other things about the NFL playoffs.
