  • All for 1: Debating who deserves the top CFP spot
    The coveted No. 1 College Football Playoff seed will come down to who has the best body of work between Ohio State and LSU. More

  • Seven names popping up as the next coach of the New York Knicks
    Mike Miller is in, temporarily (unless he can work miracles with this roster over 60 games). The answer to that question starts with the answer to a different question: Who is the team president of the Knicks next season? Current head honcho Steve Mills is on the hot seat. More

  • Baylor QB Charlie Brewer (head) leaves Big 12 title game, reportedly at behest of referee
    Baylor quarterback Charlie Brewer left the Big 12 title game against Oklahoma. Brewer took several big hits early on. After being sacked by Kenneth Murray, Brewer stayed down on the field briefly before being pulled to his feet by teammates and slowly staggering to the sideline. More

  • Tito Ortiz submits Alberto Rodriguez in Combate Americas main event
    Tito Ortiz dominated pro wrestling superstar and MMA fighter Alberto Rodriguez en route to a first round submission via rear naked choke Saturday night in McAllen, Texas. The bout was Rodriguez's first in nearly a decade and he demonstrated plenty of awareness and skill in his losing effort, but he simply could not match the former UFC champion's abilities. Rodriguez quickly closed the distance at the bout's start and attempted a throw on Ortiz from a clinch. More

  • Report: Becky Hammon has interest in Knicks head coaching job
    The New York Knicks have run through 10 coaches this century, including three in the past four years, so they may have trouble attracting the most established coaching candidates in their search to replace David Fizdale. Hammon became the first full-time female assistant coach in any of the big four American sports in 2014 after a 16-year run in the WNBA. Sources told CNBC's Jabari Young and Ganesh Setty that Hammon would have interest in the position if she could land a four- or five-year deal. More

  • How Chris Archer, complete with a 5-plus ERA, is setting an example everybody can follow
    A five ERA will bring you to places, man. A five ERA kicks and spits and leaves jagged marks in places you didn't even know existed. A five ERA finds you laying rage on top of helplessness on top of hesitation, finds you throwing straight through your shoulder while giving chase to shadows, finds you in that place and looking for footprints that match your shoe size, wondering how you got there.

  • Report: 'Disconnect' between HC Freddie Kitchens and OC Todd Monken behind Browns' offensive struggles
    As you might have heard, the Cleveland Browns' most hyped season in recent memory has not been going as hoped. Between Myles Garrett's now-infamous helmet-bonking of Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph and Baker Mayfield's sophomore struggles, the team has been loudly struggling at 5-7 and head coach Freddie Kitchens' seat is getting hotter by the week. There's a disconnect between offensive coordinator Todd Monken, who answers for the offense every Thursday and has jokingly called it his weekly “dentist appointment,” and Kitchens, who calls the plays on game day with input from Monken, quarterbacks coach Ryan Lindley, and some say even inactive quarterback Drew Stanton.

  • Tiger Woods trolls Justin Thomas with hilarious, lengthy first-tee announcement before their Hero World Challenge tee time
    Saturday marks the third time Tiger Woods and Justin Thomas have been paired together this week at the Hero World Challenge. Before their third-round tee time, Thomas couldn't help but laugh at the quick introduction he got, compared to his playing partner, the tournament host. On Saturday, Tiger got back at JT with some well-thought-out humor. More

  • Georgetown players allegedly stole $1,625 worth of items, threatened accuser on FaceTime
    More details have emerged around the allegations against three Georgetown men's basketball players, one of whom left the team while the other two suited up for the Hoyas this week. Forward Josh LeBlanc and teammates Galen Alexander and Myron Gardner were linked to reports this week of sexual assault, harassment and burglary. At least two women reportedly filed temporary restraining orders against LeBlanc. More

  • 49ers-Saints odds, predictions: Betting lines, picks for NFL Week 14 game
    For the third straight week, the 49ers will play in a potential playoff preview Sunday. The Niners (10-2) visit the NFC-leading New Orleans Saints (10-2) at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, as San Francisco concludes a brutal three-week stretch that included games against the Green Bay Packers and Baltimore Ravens. Facing Aaron Rodgers, Lamar Jackson and Saints quarterback Drew Brees in back-to-back-to-back weeks is no small feat, and it's clear 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan is taking a matchup with Brees seriously. More

  • After second career 3-pointer, 76ers coach says he wants Ben Simmons taking one per game
    Let it be etched into the tablets of basketball history: Ben Simmons has made his second career 3-pointer. After shocking the world last month with his first, the Philadelphia 76ers point guard used the opportunity of a total rout of the Cleveland Cavaliers to show it wasn't a fluke. Simmons caught a pass from Trey Burke and, with no defender even trying to block him, pulled up from beyond the arc. More

  • Ravens' John Harbaugh reacts to 49ers' Tim Ryan's Lamar Jackson remarks
    49ers broadcaster Tim Ryan was suspended for one game after comments made about Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson following Sunday's loss. "He's really good at that fake, Lamar Jackson, but when you consider his dark skin color with the dark football with a dark uniform, you could not see the thing," Ryan said on the show (H/T The San Francisco Chronicle). The comments created a social media firestorm, but Ravens head coach John Harbaugh isn't interested in furthering the controversy. More

  • Georgia QB Jake Fromm has day to forget in blowout loss
    Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm had almost everything go against him in the Southeastern Conference championship game. Making his third consecutive start in the SEC title game, Fromm threw two poorly placed interceptions, completed less than 50% of his passes for the fifth straight game and had a few well-placed balls dropped by open receivers. A touchdown would have made it a two-score game, but Matt Landers, jumping in the left corner of the end zone, let a 19-yard pass slip through his hands. More

  • Report: Cavaliers rebelling against John Beilein treating them like college players
    Cavaliers coach John Beilein can help players develop, equipping them to win and secure bigger contracts. He also came to Cleveland after a lengthy career in college basketball, where he was always in charge and never had a player on a clear NBA track from the moment he enrolled. The question was always: Which would happen first – Beilein convincing the Cavs players he'd help them or them pouncing amid his lack of experience with players who carried themselves as professionals? More

  • Knicks lose on missed FT in 1st game since firing Fizdale
    The New York Knicks didn't have any close games in David Fizdale's final days, then got one right away under interim coach Mike Miller. Julius Randle's missed free throw ended their chance to win it, but just being competitive again was a good start after a rough couple of days. Randle missed a free throw with 0.1 seconds left, sending New York to a 104-103 loss to the Indiana Pacers on Saturday night in the Knicks' first game since firing Fizdale. More
