My Thoughts on Day 6 of Titans Training Camp - 08/01/14

The MVP of Titans Training Camp so far?  Mother Nature.  And it isn't close.  She has been fantastic.  Another pleasant day weather-wise at St. Thomas Sports Park.  Pleasant considering we're talking about Nashville, Tennessee on August 1st. Anywho, let's talk about Day 6...

1)  Justin Hunter continues to make big plays.  No, he isn't as consistent as his coaches or teammates would like.  Yes, he is electric about 4-6 plays every practice.  And that number is growing.  Today, he caught yet another deep ball in a 1-on-1 drill for a touchdown.  And made a sweet grab over a defender for another score.  One of the victims?

2)  Tommie Campbell.  He's been getting torched all of training camp, especially deep.  Coach Ken Whisenhunt tried to downplay it when asked in the post-practice press conference, saying "games are what matter."  Campbell better hope so, because at this point, I can't see him making the team.

3)  Guys are looking forward to practicing at LP Field.  It won't be open to the public.  So there won't be any fans.  It doesn't matter.  Nearly every man in two-toned blue is eager to play in their home stadium.  It may be as simple as getting away from St. Thomas Sports Park for a day.  It may be because it's a night practice.  Whatever.  They're pretty pumped about it.

4)  Bishop Sankey will be getting a majority of the touches in the Titans backfield sooner, rather than later.  He's already working with the starters at least 50% of the time.  My guess is that will only increase as the season goes on.  If you're looking for a sleeper running back in your fantasy football league, Sankey may be your guy. 

That's it for today.  I'll let you know what happens at LP Field tomorrow.

MARIJUANA LEGALIZATION-POLL

WASHINGTON (AP) -- A new poll indicates that lots of folks in Washington, D.C. want their city to be the District of Cannabis. The Washington Post survey finds District of Columbia residents favor legalizing pot by a nearly 2-to-1 margin. The ballot issue is being put to voters in the November election. But even if it passes, Congress could block the pot initiative from taking effect.

CLEMSON-SEX SURVEY

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- None of your business. That's what many Clemson students are telling the administration. Students at the South Carolina university had been required to fill out a sex survey that asked some pretty detailed questions. University officials said the questionnaire was part of an effort to combat sexual discrimination and abuse. The school says the program is being suspended until officials review the content. Students took the sex survey online and had to log in using their Clemson ID and password.

WHEEL OF FORTUNE WIN

SILVER SPRING, Md. (AP) -- A Maryland math teacher now counts to more than a million. Sarah Manchester wins a million bucks plus on "Wheel of Fortune." The episode aired earlier this week. She's just the third person to win more than a mil on the long-running game show. Manchester says she's "soaking in every minute" of the big win. She teaches math and is the math team coach at Takoma Park Middle School. She was a student there herself. Manchester tells WJLA-TV she'll use her new fortune for her two children's education and for family travel.

VIDEO GAME MUSEUM

FRISCO, Texas (AP) -- Picasso, no. But Pac-Man, yes -- for a new Texas museum. A community development board in a fast-growing Dallas suburb has approved a $1 million plan to back the nation's first video game museum. The Dallas Morning News reports the Frisco Community Development board voted unanimously last night to approve the deal. The Videogame History Museum would be housed in a renovated local museum. It would be the testing ground for a larger and more permanent home planned in Frisco. The collection includes games, consoles and memorabilia, everything from Pac-Man to a working prototype of Pong.
