Ryan Pedersen: Kawhi So Serious: The Up-to-Date News of San Diego Sports

Aztec Basketball recently had been going through a rough stretch with a couple rough road losses to some tougher schools in the Mountain West conference. Losses to undefeated at home Colorado St. and one-loss at home UNLV, makes the Aztec repeat of the regular season title a little more difficult. SDSU’s recent trouncing of Wyoming at Viejas Arena helped a ton but Colorado St. losing at UNLV makes it difficult considering UNLV has swept SDSU in the regular season. Look for UNLV or New Mexico to take the regular season title but come conference tourney time that is when the Aztecs shine.

The NFL Combine, also known as the “Underwear Olympics” starts this Saturday in Indianapolis. Charger fans that are steady and cautiously looking for reasons to deposit on season tickets will pay close attention on who performs well on the OL workouts.  They may even want to take a look at corner too, even though they recently claimed Johnny Patrick off waivers from the New Orleans Saints. The Chargers have been good at striking it rich with the waiver wire, but don’t get that excited as Kevin Acee of U-T said “He’s just a guy.” Let’s hope that Leon Sandcastle will still be available come April but I don’t think the Chiefs will let that happen.

In more irrelevant team news, the San Diego Padres, along with 31 other teams reported to Spring Training in Arizona and Florida. The smell of optimism in the air by March and disappointment by July or August, I’m not sure even the studded finish by Chase Headley had toward the end of the 2012 season can still fill the seats other than opening day, which is always a given in sell outs. Padres catcher Yasmani Grandal will begin his suspension once game one starts of his 50 game suspension. He, along with SS and 2012 NL Stolen Base leader Everth Cabrera, have been in the news because of recent leaks to steroid sales from a Florida supplement dealer with other superstars of MLB. We’ll see if Grandal bounces back after game 50 is up.

(Honorable Mention: SDSU baseball sweeps No. 12 ranked cross town rival USD last weekend to move the Aztecs to No. 22 in the nation with No. 6 Oregon State already underway, a four game series with OSU up 1-0 in the series)

So, Kawhi so serious?
