  • Nick Saban on Les Miles: Wins national title and two SEC titles and doesn’t last a season?

    The firing of Les Miles by LSU on Sunday afternoon caught a number of people by surprise. Perhaps it shouldn’t have considering the drama surrounding Miles’ job situation toward the end of the 2015 season, but none the less the Tigers have moved on and named Ed Orgeron its interim head coach for the remainder of the 2016 season. On Monday, the coach Miles was hired to replace at LSU reacted to the news, and he certainly seemed puzzled by it. “A man wins a national championship and two SEC titles, and he doesn’t make it through the season?” That was the response of one Nick Saban, head coach of the Alabama Crimson Tide. “Les Miles is one of the most respected colleagues in terms of rivalry we’ve

  • 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.

  • Thrilling comeback gives No. 7 Stanford a wild win over UCLA

    Death. Taxes. Stanford over UCLA. Cardinal head coach David Shaw ran his record to a perfect 7-0 against the Bruins in thrilling fashion on Saturday night thanks to a 22-13 comeback victory at the Rose Bowl. Trailing 13-9 with just two minutes left in the game, the Cardinal marched 70 yards in 101 seconds to take an improbable lead after failing to score a touchdown until their final drive. Quarterback Ryan Burns was behind most of the yardage on what would be the game-winning drive, going 5-of-8 to finish off the Bruins by lofting a perfectly thrown fade into the hands of 6-foot-3 receiver J.J. Arcega-Whiteside near the corner of the end zone. Burns finished with just 137 yards through the air

    It took Cris ‘Cyborg’ Justino a little more than one round to finish off Lina Lansberg. Cris “Cyborg” Justino has already won two title belts, so the fact she doesn’t have a UFC division to compete in doesn’t faze her much. Justino blistered Lansberg with a powerful right hand and then pummeled her on the ground, forcing referee Mario Yamasaki to stop the bout in the main event of UFC Fight Night in Brasilia, Brazil, at 2:29 of the second.

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

    Here’s a homework assignment for you: praise Sidney Crosby‘s incredible work without downgrading Alex Ovechkin. Yes, it’s not easy. ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun presented an interesting column that spotlighted an admittedly “tired narrative” while still ultimately pumping up Crosby at Ovechkin’s expense. LeBrun quoted anonymous executives who, yes, trotted out tired narratives. 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. It’s all … well, tiresome. Ovechkin may not have had the greatest game of his life on Saturday, but watching that game, was the takeaway really that

    Sunday afternoon marked Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully’s final home game behind the microphone. Scully has been celebrated in many ways since he announced he planned to retire at season’s end. On Sunday, he was surprised by a visit from his grandchildren. The players in the Dodgers’ starting lineup honored Scully by tipping their helmets up at him in the broadcast booth prior to their first at-bats against the Rockies. Poetically, Scully’s final calls will come next weekend when the Dodgers are in San Francisco to play the Giants. Scully became enamored by baseball at the age of eight after watching the New York Giants in Game 2 of the 1936 World Series.

  • Brian Kelly calls out, lashes out at Irish players lacking ‘fire and grit’

    If you thought the Notre Dame coaching staff, specifically the defensive side of the ball, would be publicly held accountable by the head coach, you’d be dead wrong. Following a 38-35 home loss to Duke that featured a blown 14-0 lead and fourth-quarter defensive shrinking, Brian Kelly decided instead to lash out against those players listed as first-teamers on his depth chart.  Most notably, starting quarterback DeShone Kizer was singled out after a performance that included 381 yards passing and 60 yards rushing was labeled by Kelly as “below standard” and “not acceptable” thanks to a pair of turnovers. Aside from the longsnapper, though, Kizer wasn’t alone in feeling his head coach’s postgame

  • 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.
