Crowds were smaller on Sunday than earlier in the week, but protesters said they would continue until police, who on Saturday released portions of videos showing Scott's death, published all the footage.

  • QB Danny Clark decommits from Ohio State

    Ohio State’s 2017 class just got a little bit smaller, after the recruit who has been the member the longest will be playing his college football somewhere else. Three-star QB Danny Clark, of Massillon, Ohio, just decommitted from Ohio State, per his Twitter account. Clark originally committed to Ohio State as a freshman, and made it clear throughout this process that Ohio State was his dream school, so on some level, this is a somewhat surprising development. But Ohio State has already added another quarterback in this recruiting class, in four-star dual-threat QB Tate Martell. Over the last year, it became increasingly clear that Clark’s skillset is less fitted to Ohio State’s offense. Ohio

  • The Cardinals were jeered at home last night

    The Cardinals got shellacked 15-2 by the Reds, one of baseball’s worst teams, last night. In so doing they fell a half game behind the Giants for the second Wild Card. Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post Dispatch wrote about last night’s game. What struck him was the reaction from the crowd at Busch Stadium: And the fans, in a rare moment of pique, let the Cardinals hear about it, first booing and then erupting in a Bronx cheer when the final out of a seven-run fourth was recorded. They booed a little more later on and then many of them beat the traffic, with some of them at least leaving with a Grateful Dead T-shirt, a special theme night promotion . . . The paid crowd to witness the carnage was

  • Report: Chelsea set to overhaul defense with clear out

    At times during Chelsea’s 3-0 defeat at Arsenal on Saturday, Antonio Conte looked like he was going to cry. The defending was that bad. Chelsea gave up three first half goals, the first in calamitous fashion as Gary Cahill was inexplicably caught on the ball to let Alexis Sanchez in to score, and Conte was seething in his post-match press conference about the level of defending and the fact that Chelsea has now conceded at least twice in each of their last four games. The Daily Mail reports that the Italian manager has seen enough from both Cahill and struggling right back Branislav Ivanovic and he will “phase them out” in the coming weeks at Stamford Bridge.

The Mets entered the game needing to need as many of the six games left in the season as they fight to outlast the Giants and Cardinals for the NL Wild Card. And yet, given what the Marlins experienced during the last 48 hours, I can easily accept the Mets losing in Miami last night. It felt like the right thing to do... The night was full of emotions, and both sides did an admirable job fighting through... "He respected the game. That's why he played it like he

Q.  Kevin, you said going into the Chase you were already going max effort and you were already going to go hard, but it seems like there's another way that you can raise your game when you're in adverse situations like you found yourself in after this week.  Do you have another notch?  How are you performing so well in clutch situations again and again? KEVIN HARVICK:  I think it's really the nature of our team.  It's one of those things where you get behind a little bit, and I feel like that's something I like because you can motivate yourself and you can motivate everybody around you by your actions and the things that you do and the attitude that you carry to the car on practice days and how you present yourself in the meetings.  These guys were all ‑‑ they were mad after qualifying.  I was kind of laughing, and it was like, it's going to be fine.  I don't know if you guys have noticed but we passed a lot of cars over the last three years.  We can pass.
