How Christian Dawkins went from unknown to key figure in a scandal that could bring down college basketball
By January 2015, according to the complaint, “It became apparent that Dawkins was actually representing ASM’s interests, not IMA’s, when interacting with prospects, and he could no longer be trusted. … Thus, IMA began discussions with Dawkins to terminate his employment.” Connor Hellebuyck picked up the win in net by making 37 saves. Cam Talbot […]
Marcus Spears was a bona fide dude at LSU. A 6-foot-4, 300-pound defensive monster who ate quarterbacks like they were omelets and departed Baton Rouge as a national champion, consensus All-American and NFL first round draft pick. The Big Swagu backed down from no man or opponent. He feared nothing. Edmonton tied the game just […]
Jay-Z still has Colin Kaepernick’s back. The rapper donned a No.7 “Colin K” jersey while performing his new song, “Bam,” alongside Damian Marley during his Saturday Night Live appearance. The display comes after Jay-Z reportedly turned down the opportunity to perform this season’s Super Bowl haftime show and opened the door for Justin Timberlake to […]
There was a thought that Leonard Fournette arrival in the first round of the draft would make either Chris Ivory or Yeldon expendable.
Miami has backed itself in a corner within its secondary, as a position thin on talent might force the team to keep the mediocre Maxwell, despite him carrying an $8 million cap hit. But as Fournette has dealt with a foot injury, Jacksonville is less able to afford cutting its backfield depth. Yeldon’s receiving skills […]
The Vikings saw the Saints’ impressive opening drive and raised them an even more impressive opening drive.
End of first quarter. Two drives — one for each team — took up almost all of the first 15 minutes. New Orleans had run two plays on its second drive before the end of the quarter. The Saints held a 62-48 total yards advantage over the Vikings. Kai Forbath made a 24-yard field goal […]
A Las Vegas Police Department spokesman said Wednesday race was not a factor in the detainment of Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett last month. “I see no evidence that race played any role in this incident,” Las Vegas Police Department Undersheriff Kevin McMahill said of the Aug. 27 event in a Wednesday press conference. Police […]
The NFL’s new top dog is the … Kansas City Chiefs? It’s true. Just one week into the season and ESPN’s Football Power Index (FPI) believes that, going forward, Andy Reid’s team is the strongest in the NFL. Diggs didn’t want to go overboard about Minnesota’s offensive prowess after just one game. But he knows […]
This will be the fifth consecutive season the Browns have three different starters at the most important position.
Britt has stood by Bennett’s side with a supportive hand on his shoulder while the defensive end has sat on the bench during the national anthem before the Seahawks’ last three preseason games. Britt began doing that after Bennett sat alone on the bench during the anthem before the preseason opener. Patrisse Cullors, the co-founder […]
Carmelo Anthony is open to waiving his no-trade clause for the Rockets or Cavaliers, reports ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. This is interesting news, especially considering that Phil Jackson was at least in part fired as the president of the Knicks for trying to cajole Anthony into waiving his trade veto power. Perhaps Jackson just wasn’t asking […]
Irving doesn’t have a no-trade clause, so he doesn’t have the ability to reject any old trade here like Carmelo Anthony has done with the Knicks. He still has two years and a player option left on his contract, so he can’t use the same threat of departing as a short-term rental that Paul George […]
