  • Michigan State trio raises fists during national anthem

    Protests during Week 4 of the college football season that began Friday night have bled over into Saturday’s action. Prior to the Wiconsin-Michigan State this afternoon, three Spartans — fullback Delton Williams, defensive end Gabe Sherrod, safety Kenney Lyke — raised their fists in protest during the playing of the national anthem. Sherrod, an FCS transfer once committed to Syracuse who instead transferred to MSU, stated earlier in the week that it’s “[t]ime to represent this movement publicly!!” Mlive.com published a photo on its website that shows Sherrod (left, No. 89) and his teammates with their fists in the air in protest.

  • Sadly, Crosby praise still comes at Ovechkin’s expense

    ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun presented an interesting column that spotlighted an admittedly “tired narrative” while still ultimately pumping up Crosby at Ovechkin’s expense. One executive did the baseball thing in making it Crosby (“five-tool guy”) vs. Ovechkin (“home run hitter”) while another equated it to a full-court player vs. a “half-court” player. Ovechkin may not have had the greatest game of his life on Saturday, but watching that game, was the takeaway really that he let Russia down?

  • Report: John Farrell won’t rule out a postseason return for Pablo Sandoval

    It’s been a strange season for Red Sox’ third baseman Pablo Sandoval, who lost his starting role in spring training, went 0-for-6 in three regular season appearances, and underwent season-ending surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder in May. That was the last the Red Sox were supposed to hear about Sandoval until spring 2017, when he was expected to rejoin the team after a lengthy rehab stint in Florida. On Saturday, manager John Farrell was telling a different story. Per MLB.com’s Sam Blum, Farrell hinted that Sandoval could return to the team as soon as October, albeit in a very limited capacity. At the time of the surgery, it was all looking at the start of next Spring Training,”

  • Jim Harbaugh thinks Jeremy Clark’s injury is ‘a season-ender’

    Jeremy Clark started the first three games of the 2016 season for Michigan because All-American Jourdan Lewis was battling through some nagging injuries. Lewis (pictured, No. 34) returned to the lineup Saturday against Penn State, but, unfortunately, it appears his replacement has been lost for a substantial period of time.  In fact, after the beatdown of the Nittany Lions, head coach Jim Harbaugh didn’t shy away from the fact that the senior cornerback is likely gone for the remainder of the year with a torn ACL. “Sad right now about Jeremy Clark, I don’t think we’re going to be able to dodge a bullet on that one. That’s got everyone in the locker room a little sad right now,” Harbaugh said.

  • Robin Lehner certainly has swagger

    Robin Lehner is a big goalie, and barring possible language barrier issues, sure seems to have a pretty big personality. That at least seems to be the case with the Buffalo Sabres’ top guy, who provided the Buffalo News’ John Vogl with a great quote: “There’s a lot of pressure on me, and that’s fine. … I know I’m a good goaltender,” Lehner said. Hey now. As much as the Sabres feel like a work in progress, acquiring Lehner was one of GM Tim Murray’s boldest moves. Murray was able to observe Lehner in Ottawa, and despite some struggles, the big Swede (6-foot-5, 240 lbs.) was sneaky-good in 2015-16. Twenty-one games serves as a limited sample size, yet a .924 save percentage seems quite promising.
