Leadoff with Lee 1.13.15 #Buckeyes #JohnFox #Broncos #LeBron

- I guess Oregon couldn't find their 'trail', but allowed Ezekiel to find it.

"Zeke" Elliot was on Marshawn Lynch "Beast Mode"-like levels, as he rushed for 246 yards and 4 touchdowns, in a 42-20 National Championship win over the Oregon Ducks.

Elliot rushed to #2 on the list of best rushing seasons at Ohio State with a total of 1,878 yards, just a little bit shy of Eddie George's record of 1,927 and the best in CFP history. Cleveland's own Cardale Jones passed for 246 yards going 16/23. Despite Ohio State having 4 turnovers, that almost had us beating ourselves, we beat the Ducks for the "Chip on Fleek"  Buuuuuut, who is the QB next year ?

Former OSU drum major and graduate Matt Bally said, "After seeing over 100 games in person, I honestly feel this is the most impressive OSU squad to play for the Buckeyes in the last 50 years.

- John Fox and the Denver Broncos will be mutual parting ways. Fox, who leaves Denver after 3 straight 12 win seasons but with a 2-3 postseason record, is already scheduled to interview for the open Chicago Bears head coaching job. Broncos defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio is a favorite for the Raiders head coach vacancy. The San Francisco 49ers are expected to meet with and make a final push for Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase tonight.

- It came out yesterday that Peyton Manning played the last month of the season with a torn right quadricep. The actual injury Manning is suffering from is a torn rectus femoris,which runs down the center of the thigh. Is this the last hurrah for Peyton Manning? I don't think so. Manning will get his required surgery,rehab go on vacation with his family and come back for one last season. But then again Manning will get paid $19 million dollars from the Broncos regardless. His 2015 salary is guarenteed if he was on the roster at the end of the 2014 season. So at this point,will he play next season? Your guess is about as good as mine. Before the Broncos hire a head coach (even one on their staff), they must go through the process including following the Rooney Rule.

- To no surprise, Lebron James has the most popular selling jersey based upon overall sales from NBAstore.com and Adidas. This is the 5th consecutive year and 2nd time as a Cavalier that James has held the number one spot. The next five jerseys belong to Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry, Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant, Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant, Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose and James' Cavaliers teammate, Kyrie Irving.

- Browns tackles Joe Thomas & Joel Bitonio collected post season awards by being voted to the Pro Football Writers of America All-NFL team. This is the 5th time Thomas has won the award. Thomas also was also voted to his 8th straight Pro Bowl and 5th All-Pro first team in 8 seasons. Joel Bitonio also was voted the runner up in Pro Football Focus' Offensive Rookie of the year.

"I'm Thankful"
