LeBron’s endorsement, Jay Bruce’s accomplishment lead weekend in review

Well if anyone could steal headlines from the NFL, LeBron James would seem to be a top candidate.

He did just that Sunday by endorsing Hillary Clinton for president.

Will that help her beat Donald Trump in Ohio? Certainly can’t hurt, although nothing seems to be predictable in this election…

After the Bengals won Thursday, the rest of the NFL weekend was a mixed bag for Cincinnati. On the bright side, the Ravens took their first loss, but the Steelers bounced back from being blown out by the Eagles by destroying the Chiefs…

Saturday saw another Ohio State romp while Michigan, Clemson and Washington beat top 10 teams.

J.T. Barrett became Ohio State’s all-time leader in touchdown passes, passing Bobby Hoying of St. Henry.

Next up for the Buckeyes is an Indiana team that just upset Michigan State.

The Hoosiers have a lot of new faces from the team that gave Ohio State all it could handle in Bloomington last season.

Dayton got back on track with a home win over Drake while Wittenberg downed Wooster to remain undefeated…

Meanwhile, there was not-good news from the Flyer basketball team as it announced freshman Kostas Antetokounmpo will not play this season because the NCAA deemed him a partial qualifier.

The Flyers start practice Oct. 10…

And that leaves us with, well, baseball leaving us.

The Reds played their last game of the season Sunday, and it ended the only way possible for the 2016 season: With the bullpen blowing a lead.

Ironically, that helped the club end up with a better draft pick for next season as it came the same day the Braves and Rays won. The Reds will pick No. 2 in 2017, as they did this past June.

Cincinnati's baseball franchise kicked off the weekend by announcing Bryan Price will be back as manager next season. This is worth expanding on later, but it looks like a good move at this point.

Meanwhile, the Cardinals did not make the postseason despite being gifted a win by poor umpiring on Thursday night.

Jay Bruce is headed back to the playoffs with the Mets, and he looked like he had a pretty good time celebrating.
