  • Vettel ‘expected a bit more’ than fourth in Hungary

    Sebastian Vettel says Ferrari “expected a bit more” than fourth place in Sunday’s Hungarian Grand Prix as Red Bull moved to within a point of the Italian marque in the Formula 1 constructors’ championship. Vettel claimed his second race win for Ferrari in Hungary last year, but was left to settle for P4 this time around after failing to pass Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo for third in the closing stages. The result extended Ferrari’s winless run in 2016, and allowed Red Bull to pull up just a point behind in the constructors’ championship. When asked by NBCSN if Ferrari now how to admit it was in a battle for second, Vettel said: “We never denied it! We have to fight Red Bull. “Our target is always

  • The Rangers are expecting a better Kevin Hayes next season

    While speaking about Kevin Hayes on a conference call, Jeff Gorton said that he expects Hayes to come into this season with a chip on his shoulder and "play really well." Gorton said that Hayes is a 6-5 center who has shown at times "how good he can be in this league." He said that Hayes' second year was similar in some ways to a lot of players who have a good first year and struggle the next year to meet expectations. Alain Vigneault said after the season that Hayes is part of the Rangers future but needs to step up. It's been said that Hayes is someone who needs to engage more on a consistent basis.

The violations occurred when the Eagles played an ineligible athlete in three games over those seasons. The wins came against Savannah State and St. Francis in 2013 and Louisiana-Monroe in 2014. Georgia Southern’s 2014 Sun Belt championship will not be impacted by the ruling. “While it is disappointing to vacate these three victories, we get to put this chapter behind us,” Georgia Southern AD Tom Kleinlein said in a statement. “The student-athletes on this year’s football team, and teams moving forward, are not affected by the NCAA’s ruling

  • After Falling For His Own Myth, McGregor's Upcoming Rematch At 170lbs Is Taking A Heavy Risk

    As Conor McGregor looked on at Jose Aldo at UFC 200, he wanted to let everyone know he’s still here, that he’s made his mark. He’s was used to leaving marks on opponents, but his own myth has left its mark on him. It was a rare appearance before UFC 202 where he intends to right a wrong, a wrong he did to himself. No sooner had Aldo hit the floor than Conor brought the featherweight division to a standstill, with his ambitious desires for solidifying his legacy as a double UFC title holder. Those same desires were then stalled, somewhat by Dos Anjos’ injury, leading to McGregor’s invincibility being scuttled at the hands of Nate Diaz, but Conor also stifled his own ambitions. The idea was simple

  • Report: Mavericks up final deal with Dirk Nowitzki to two-years, $50 million

    After a few years of Dirk Nowitzki giving Mark Cuban and the Dallas Mavericks major financial concessions to help pay for a better team, the Mavericks are paying him back. Dallas is signing Nowitzki to a larger-than-expected two-year, $50 million contract, reports Marc Stein of ESPN. The Dallas Mavericks and face of the franchise Dirk Nowitzki have finalized their expected new deal with another bump in pay that sets the star forward up to earn $50 million over the next two seasons and play until age 40, league sources told ESPN. Sources said Friday that the Mavericks have tacked an additional $10 million onto the original two-year, $40 million contract that the sides, as ESPN first reported, agreed to earlier this month.

  • The science of sweat: Giants use technology to stay hydrated in the heat

    NEW YORK – Giants manager Bruce Bochy remembers a time when ballplayers would combat the heat by putting cabbage leaves under their hats. Methods are a little more sophisticated these days. The Giants might play in a crisper drawer at AT&T Park, but they can’t escape hothouse ballparks when they play outside their division in the summer months. This weekend at Yankee Stadium, temperatures reached the upper 90s with the usual East Coast humidity. Every player on the field was a Sultan of Sweat. And that’s where Geoff Head, the Giants’ sports science specialist, comes in. When it comes to hydration, Head’s head is soaking with knowledge.

Ekakitie wrote his profile — a large black man dressed in black clothes — led five Iowa City officers to approach him, but the Hawkeye defender did not hear their approach due to having headphones in his ears — which led the officers to draw their guns.

Things really heated up with talks of moving next to the New York Mets with a new arena in Queens, but apparently that’s not all. New York Newsday reports that the Islanders have met “several times” with the New York Racing Association to build a new arena in Belmont. This would mean that the Islanders would (wait for it) bring the team back to the Nassau area. It was emphasized that such talks were in early stages and that the ownership group is “weighing multiple options, including remaining in Brooklyn.” When it came to the rumors

    The Celtics are slowly but surely taking care of their eight (!) 2016 draft picks. They’ll sign No. 3 pick Jaylen Brown. No. 16 pick Guerschon Yabusele and No. 23 pick Ante Zizic will remain overseas. The Nos. 31 and 35 picks were traded for a future first-rounder on draft night. And Boston has reached terms with No. 45 pick Demetrius Jackson and No. 51 pick Ben Bentil. Adam Himmelsbach of The Boston Globe: As second-rounders, neither Jackson nor Bentil count against the cap until signed. So, the Celtics — with a little cap space plus the room exception and minimum-salary exceptions available — might wait a while to officially sign either player. Jackson would give Boston 16 players — one more
