Luke Ken­nard looks

bench­ing of J.T. Bar­rett. That’s a popular sen­ti­ment around th­ese parts, but it’s not Car­man’s place to pop off. I’m guess­ing he’ll end up at USC, where he can tweet all day. good in those White-Allen com­mer­cials. The kid from Franklin is pol­ished and comes off as re­laxed and sin­cere. The spot was a great test run for Ken­nard, who has some good tape for fu­ture en­dorse­ment deals. I hope he drives a Chevro­let or Ford, es­pe­cially since he’ll be start­ing his NBA ca­reer in Detroit.

Beth Mowins

did a great job call­ing the late game last week on “Mon­day Night Foot­ball”. A big deal was made about a wo­man chat­ting about the Bron­cos-Chargers game, but col­lege foot­ball fans know Mowins. She’s worked many games on Satur­days. Now maybe she can men­tor that side­line re­porter, who was in way over his head.

Trend­ing up:

Rafael Nadal, Aaron Judge, Tribe. Nadal won the U.S. Open last week, rais­ing his Grand Slam to­tal to 16. The Spa­niard won 21 of 24 sets in the tour­na­ment. He didn’t meet Roger Fed­erer in the fi­nal, much to the cha­grin of the tony NYC ten­nis crowd. That ticket would’ve been the sport’s equiv­a­lent of a front-row Tay­lor Swift ducat.

Trend­ing down:

Craig Car­ton, Mike Fiers, Jon Jones. Car­ton, Boomer Esi­a­son’s for­mer ra­dio side­kick, re­signed from WFAN in NYC after he was charged with run­ning a $5 mil­lion Ponzi scheme to pay off gam­bling debts. Car­ton al­legedly took money from in­vestors who thought they were putting their cash be­hind a ticket-re­selling busi­ness.
