  • 2016 BIG TEN POWER RANKINGS: I have Ohio State 3rd, and I regret it already

    At the end of each conference run-through, I take a look at how I perceive the conference's balance of power heading into the season. This is in no way based on schedules, so they are not predictions. This is just how I would rank the teams after writing thousands of words about each of them. When I finished all of the Group of Five conferences, I compiled a full mid-major power rankings list. Now we're into the power conferences; here's the ACC, and here's the Pac-12. Each team's name below links to its full preview. Tier 1 1. Michigan 2. Michigan State 3. Ohio State I've gone back and forth on this constantly. As you see below, all three of these teams have low numbers in returning production.

  • Mike Krzyzewski: Team USA having too much fun, needs to tone it down

    Mike Krzyzewski hates fun (even more than he admits). So, the coach wasn’t thrilled after Team USA’s exhibition win over China, which included DeMar DeRozan nearly 360-degree dunking on someone. Marc J. Spears of ESPN: I want to see Team USA make highlight plays. Dunk from the free-throw line. Shoot from halfcourt. Throw behind-the-back passes. Show up weaker competition. So, it’s hard for me to get behind Coach K’s criticism. But I also want to see the Americans win gold medals in the Olympics, and I’ll blame Krzyzewski if they’re not adequately focused. Fair? Not one bit. Doesn’t change what I want, though.

  • Huge If True: Will Canucks take on Evander Kane?

    Last week in this space, we discussed whether the Vancouver Canucks would be able to trade for a scoring winger. At the time, though, the idea that Evander Kane would be the target was a little farfetched. Kane was arrested late last week for allegedly harassing three women, and potentially choking and pulling the hair of one of them.

  • Fabregas sent off as Chelsea edges Liverpool in testy ICC clash

    Chelsea’s back line did most of the work in Wednesday’s International Champions Cup opener against Liverpool. Gary Cahill’s early header stood up as Chelsea weathered Liverpool’s attack and a second-half red card to Cesc Fabregas in a contentious 1-0 win at the Rose Bowl. Klavan left the match momentarily before returning and appears lucky to not have escaped a more serious injury to his left foot.

  • Carmelo Anthony predicts Knicks-Bulls on Christmas or opening night

    Carmelo Anthony said the Knicks should have gotten a Christmas game last year. In hindsight, the NBA reportedly agreed. So, Anthony expects New York to get a marquee matchup — against the Bulls — on either Christmas or opening night. Chris Herring of The Wall Street Journal: The storylines are overflowing. The Knicks added Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah — two former Bulls — to join Anthony, who strongly considered Chicago in his last free agency. The Bulls answered with a couple big names: Dwyane Wade and Rajon Rondo. They’ll join Jimmy Butler, whose stature is only growing — just like Kristaps Porzingis in New York. Those are plenty of attention-drawing players, and the league will want to capitalize,

  • Bill Belichick leaves no doubt: Tom Brady will be Patriots' starter after suspension

    Tom Brady announced almost two weeks ago that he was giving up his fight, and would end pursuit of exoneration in Deflate-gate: The Saga, meaning he’d be suspended for the first four games of this season. Which means the New England Patriots know that third-year backup Jimmy Garoppolo will be starting those games, and he must get more first-team reps during training camp than he normally does. Garoppolo, a second-round pick out of Eastern Illinois who has just 31 attempts in his first two seasons, will be at the helm for a not-too-easy quartet of games to open the season: at Arizona, then home against the Miami Dolphins, Houston Texans and Buffalo Bills.

  • Giants report to training camp today for physicals and conditioning

    The long summer break ends today for the New York Giants as they report to the Quest Diagnostics Training Center for physicals and conditioning. It will be the first summer in 12 years without former head coach Tom Coughlin at the helm. Ben McAdoo is now the head man and he is excited to get cracking. "We started to establish our identity- without pads- but sound, smart and tough, committed to discipline and poise," McAdoo said at the end of minicamp in June. "We know what it looks like now. We had a chance to sit down, we had a chance to define it and lay the foundation for when we do get the pads on." The first training camp session will be held on Friday morning. The team will hold 11 practices

  • Two years ago, Jaworski saw clear gap between Nick Foles and Russell Wilson

    Three years ago, ESPN’s Ron Jaworski cooked up one of the hottest takes of all time, taking the position that quarterback Colin Kaepernick could be one of the best quarterbacks of all time. Jaworski’s opinion somehow became news for his employer, feeding the four-letter network’s engine for several days in August 2013. A year later, Jaworski offered up an even hotter — but far less memorable — take regarding quarterbacks Nick Foles and Russell Wilson. Given a choice between the two, which would he pick? “I’m taking Foles,” Jaworski said. “Not even close. Russell Wilson is just . . . because of that system he is in. Russell Wilson plays with that defense, the best in football. He just managed

  • Detroit Tigers add much-needed component of physical pain to 'Rock, Paper, Scissors' contest

    For too long, the game “Rock, Paper, Scissors” has been relegated to the realm of the trivial, used more often to determine mundane obligations like who’s going to walk to the store to buy more beer than meaningful outcomes like who’s going to get wailed over the head with an empty water jug. Luckily, the Detroit Tigers have set out to right this wrong: From Justin Verlander’s Instagram comes evidence of the Tigers’ high-stakes version of “Rock, Paper, Scissors.” In the above video, second baseman Ian Kinsler throws scissors while shortstop Jose Iglesias throws paper, and because scissors cut paper, Kinsler gets to wallop Iglesias on the head with the water jug. Kinsler, of course, is an excellent
