  • Colleges should consider saying no to football bowl games

    Two schools with a history of greatness in college football have a real chance to make a statement this year about the current bowls system. By not playing. We speak here about UCLA and Notre Dame, and we are fully aware that we speak heresy. If you...
  • Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich is in a league of his own

    Last week was my most ill-timed vacation in years. I missed two appearances in town by Pop. There is nothing, nobody, quite like Gregg Popovich. There is the craggy face, the white beard and the sideline smirk at whatever officiating incompetence is...
  • Injuries have tested Boston Bruins' blue-collar system

    The blue-collar, lunch-pail mentality has been part of the Boston Bruins' DNA for decades, since the end of the high-scoring Bobby Orr-Phil Esposito era in the 1970s. The names have changed, but the Bruins' essence — honest effort, toughness and...
  • Cleveland Browns' Johnny Manziel may start against Indianapolis Colts

    As the NFL season heads into its fourth quarter, the Arizona Cardinals and Cleveland Browns are trying to salvage their fairy-tale seasons, while the San Diego Chargers have climbed off the scrap heap and back into the playoff race. The Chargers, who...
  • Kings continue stumbling on road as they fall, 5-4, to Dallas

    The team that fearlessly won three Game 7s on the road en route to claiming the Stanley Cup last spring has forgotten how to win away games, forgotten how to use its size and strength and brawn to dominate around the net and consistently get into position...
  • Nashville Predators have benefited from change in leadership

    With Barry Trotz as their coach, the Nashville Predators were always pesky, competitive, and solid defensively. He had stood behind their bench from their birth as an expansion team in 1998, a constant presence while the NHL's coaching carousel careened...
  • Road win against Wild comes just in time for Kings

    Justin Williams had said Wednesday morning the Kings needed to defeat the Wild primarily for peace of mind about their ability to win on the road. He foresaw them having a "gung-ho start" that would keep them from having to chase the game, a bad habit...
  • NFL Week 12: 49ers, Patriots trending up; Seahawks, Broncos down

    NFL Week 12: 49ers, Patriots trending up; Seahawks, Broncos down
    Strange days indeed. After starting the season 0-10, the Oakland Raiders finally got a win . . . by beating the scorching-hot Kansas City Chiefs, who had won seven of their previous eight games. The first-place Atlanta Falcons at 4-6 will play host...
  • NFL Week 12: Tom Brady and Patriots playing like a powerhouse afire

    NFL Week 12: Tom Brady and Patriots playing like a powerhouse afire
    With Oakland winning and Arizona losing — two of the oddities from Week 12 — about the only sure bet in the NFL these days is that the New England Patriots are going to come through. And come through big. That was the case again Sunday, as...
  • Game will go on in NFL, long after Adrian Peterson outrage fades

    Perhaps the most interesting part of the Adrian Peterson kerfuffle is that it really won’t matter. Will NFL TV ratings go down? Of course not. Will the big corporations demand to pay less for those Super Bowl commercials? Will TV viewers boycott...
  • USC's Josh Shaw tells tale of lying about pool rescue, now waits

    USC's Josh Shaw tells tale of lying about pool rescue, now waits
    Josh Shaw knows people reading this will have no reason to believe it. He wants to tell his story anyway, as a cautionary tale about a life swallowed by a lie. “I've seen the dark side, I've hit the bottom,” he said softly. “I've...
