Permit me a brief rant about something important: Those dumb, unnecessary MLB hat patches.
For the second straight season, MLB’s spring training hats feature a shield-shaped patch on the side that announces either “FL” for Florida or “AZ” for Arizona, the two places where spring training has been held for decades, in case you didn’t know. But of course you knew.

Watson led the Tigers to two consecutive trips to the College Football Playoff final after dominating the ACC, the same conference in which North Carolina’s Mitchell Trubisky started for one season. Watson also outplayed Notre Dame’s DeShone Kizer in the same game, in the same rain, against a semi-conference rival, during the latter’s better of two seasons.

Swinney believes that gives Watson a chance to go as high as No. 1 overall, above any player at any position.
