  • 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

  • Joe Rogan: ‘I’m Not Doing It Anymore’

    UFC commentator Joe Rogan has been critical about interviewing fighters moments after they’ve suffered a knockout for years, but after UFC 203, Rogan has put his foot down and refuses to do it anymore. “It’s something I had suggested a long time ago, back when we interviewed Mirko Crop Cop (Filipovic) after (Gabriel) Gonzaga knocked him out,” said Rogan during his podcast. The straw that broke the camel’s back for the broadcaster came at UFC 203 on Sept. 10. Heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic knocked out Alistair Overeem in the fight card’s main event. Following the loss, as has been customary, Rogan asked Overeem about the defeat moments after the fighter regained consciousness. Overeem said

  • Charlotte protesters march for sixth night despite shooting video release

    A couple hundred demonstrators chanted and marched through Charlotte on Sunday, as protests persisted after the release of two videos showing the fatal shooting of a black man by police officers in North Carolina's largest city. Angry protesters have filled the streets of Charlotte every day since the Tuesday killing of Keith Scott, 43, whom police said was armed when officers shot him. 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.

  • 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. With captain John Terry set to come

  • Curtis Granderson is close to making history

    With a fourth-inning solo home run off of Phillies starter Jake Thompson, Mets outfielder Curtis Granderson reached the 30-homer plateau for the fourth time in his 13-year career. It’s a moment worth celebrating, only there’s one problem: he has just 56 RBI on the season. There are many reasons for the low RBI total. 24 of Granderson’s 30 homers have come with the bases empty. He came into Sunday’s action hitting just .140 in 124 plate appearances with runners in scoring position and .197 with runners on base. He has hit leadoff for most of the season, meaning he’s had the Mets’ pitchers hitting “ahead” of him in the No. 9 slot as well as the Mets’ catchers typically hitting eighth. Mets catchers,
