    South Dakota State took an early 7-0 lead on North Dakota State on Saturday with one of the more fun trick plays of the college football season. Lined up at the five-yard line, South Dakota bunched up several offensive linemen, seemingly preparing to bulldoze their way into the end zone. Quarterback Taryn Christion took the snap and quickly handed the ball off to running back Brady Mengarelli, who was crouched behind the offensive line.

  • Carmelo on NBA CBA opt-out deadline: “I’m skeptical of something getting done”

    After months of reports that the NBA and the NBAPA would be able to reach an agreement on a new CBA, it appears the two sides have hit a snag. Ramona Shelburne of ESPN is reporting that the league and the player’s union are unlikely to agree to terms before Thursday’s deadline for the players to opt-out of the current CBA. Via ESPN: “I’m skeptical of something getting done,” Anthony, who is the vice president of the NBPA told ESPN after the New York Knicks practiced Saturday in Los Angeles. “Do I think something could happen by the 15th? Yeah I think something could happen. But I think this kind of put a dent in conversations. “We had something so close. We were supposed to have a deal done weeks

For instance, according to Daily News reporter Kristie Ackert, the Royals asked for Rosario when the Mets inquired about Wade Davis, who was eventually traded to the Cubs. "We've made that clear before and continue to make that clear when his name is mentioned, so I think clubs have gotten the message," Alderson added. MLB.com, Baseball America, and Baseball Prospectus all consider Rosario to be the Mets' top prospect. "He has outstanding speed, hands, footwork and a very strong arm, everything he needs to stay

  • Neymar out, Arda Turan has another chance for Barcelona

    BARCELONA, Spain (AP) Fresh off scoring a hat trick, Turkey midfielder Arda Turan is hoping for another chance to prove he can play alongside Barcelona’s best. With Neymar suspended for Saturday’s Spanish league match at Osasuna, Turan is likely to take his spot next to Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez in the defending champion’s vaunted attack. Turan filled in superbly for Neymar on Tuesday when he scored his first hat trick for Barcelona to lead the team to a 4-0 victory over Borussia Moenchengladbach in the Champions League. The treble took Turan’s scoring total for the season to eight goals, making him Barcelona’s third-leading scorer behind Messi (20) and Suarez (12). Even though nobody doubts

  • Timofey Mozgov gets MVP chants at free-throw line during Lakers-Suns (VIDEO)

    Timofey Mozgov is not an MVP candidate, but that didn’t stop one fan from starting a chant while the Los Angeles Lakers C was at the free-throw line on Friday night against the Phoenix Suns. May I just say this: Bless this fan. As Mozgov went to the line midway through the first quarter, someone within earshot of ESPN’s parabolic microphones started a chant for the Russian big man. It was quiet during Mozgov’s first free throw, but during the second more fans at Staples joined in to the point where it was impossible to ignore it. This is what having a fun at a basketball game looks like. Too good.

  • Fowler, Cardinals agree to deal

    It was a newsless Winter Meetings for the Mets, as it was for most teams, but it certainly wasn't quiet. In the end, the Mets held a lot of meetings where they talked with agents and team representatives for a variety of relief pitchers open to accepting major- and minor-league deals. In an effort to free up a roster spot, raise money and have fewer left-handed hitting outfielders, the Mets spent time talking with teams about Jay Bruce, though they reportedly saw more interest in Curtis Granderson and Michael Conforto, which is understandable. In the end, I expect the Mets will eventually trade Bruce and one of two things will happen, 1) They'll get back a big-league reliever making a decent

  • Danny Espinosa reportedly skipped Nationals Winterfest because of Adam Eaton

    According to Jorge Castillo of the Washington Post, Nationals infielder Danny Espinosa declined to attend the team’s annual Winterfest because of his dissatisfaction with management following their trade for outfielder Adam Eaton. A source told Castillo that Espinosa’s unhappiness stemmed from a belief that the acquisition would jeopardize his starting role in 2017. With Eaton in center field, Trea Turner will likely return to his post at shortstop, leaving Espinosa out in the cold — or, as the case may be, on the bench. The move shouldn’t come as a big surprise to Espinosa, however, as Nationals’ GM Mike Rizzo spoke to the possibility of trading the infielder or reassigning him to a utility
