  • In case you haven’t been on Twitter in the last 48 hours, Florida announced that they will be sporting what are quite possible the worst uniforms of all-time against Texas A&M on Saturday. This was apparently the culmination of an 18-month design process. Our friends over at Good Bull Hunting took some guesses at what ideas got rejected in favor of this one.
  • The Boston Red Sox have fired manager John Farrell following the team’s 3-1 series loss to the Houston Astros in the ALDS. I know at least one member of our staff who will have no shortage of hot takes on this decision...
  • Finally, we have the most depressing sports story of the day. The US Men’s National Team failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup following a 2-1 loss to Trinidad and Tobago. There has been much frustration from fans regarding the USMNT’s lack of success in recent years, but this is a new low point. There is no shortage of blame to go around, but Kevin McCauley places most of it on poor coaching.
