Thomas explained himself after his brief encounter with Garrett.
The Texas native said he didn’t mean for Garrett to literally come get him immediately, but whenever the Seahawks decide to kick him to the curb. Thomas added he wants to be in Seattle and Carroll reiterated that on Tuesday.
He was just having fun and he was really excited about the game, he was, you know, rubbing it in a little bit and having a good time with it. And then he just said something into the future. When you read it, it comes across bad, Carroll said. He was really concerned about our fans. You know, that was his first thought, ‘Geez, I don’t want to make them think that I don’t love being here,’ and all that, so he said what he could say to try to clear it up.
Carroll did say the safety’s comment was unfortunate but also joked about being up in arms when initially asked about it.
Los Angeles led by as many as 17, but couldn’t hold on as the team’s season-long losing streak stretched to six games.
Paul made a pair of free throws to tie it at 142 with about a minute left in the second overtime before Tarik Black blocked Kyle Kuzma’s shot on the other end to give Houston the ball back. P.J. Tucker grabbed a rebound on a miss by Paul and put it back up to put Houston on top.
Tucker blocked a 3-point attempt by Kuzma, and Paul added two more free throws to make it 146-142 with 3 seconds left. Paul made two more free throws after that to secure the win.
It’s part of our business, Caldwell said. That’s kind of the way it goes. That’s every year, right? Told you guys a story a long time ago about Marty Schottenheimer. Got fired at 14-2. So anything less than a Super Bowl, obviously it could happen.
I can’t believe it’s over. It’s been a wild ride, said Mayfield with a hoarse voice before he started to cry.
Michel and his roommate and running mate Nick Chubb were awesome for Georgia. Chubb ran for 145 yards and two touchdowns, including a 2-yarder on a direct snap with 55 seconds left in regulation to tie it. The Sooners had taken a 45-38 lead when Steven Parker returned Michel’s fumble for a TD with 6:52 left in the fourth.
I told him that he had to keep running and trying to hit the corner, Chubb said. We had a long game and after the fumble, we went down and he made up for it with that run to win the game.
Both teams settled for field goals in the first overtime. First, Georgia’s Rodrigo Blankenship hit from 38 to make it 48-45.
