- February 13, 2017

Watching them try was captivating and if it was not done at speed then France consistently drove them backwards. Despite having the advantage of a dominant scrum, France made sloppy mistakes that allowed the Scots back into the game. We lost too many balls and showed our weaknesses in the 22. "I think it's synonymous of the modern game that a guy of just 23 or 24 years of age can trot up 50 caps", said Scotland's assistant coach Jason O'Halloran. (more...)

The Cincinnati Enquirer's Zach Buchanan reported the "Reds [are] to receive 27-year-old LHP Andrew McKirahan and 29-year-old RHP ... (more...)

Holly Holm gets shot at new UFC title, chance to end skid
- February 12, 2017

Holm will be wrongly labeled as a one-hit wonder in the UFC after knocking out Ronda Rousey, but the fight game isn't about being fair; it's about winning. It was an wonderful accomplishment, but Holm wants to be remembered for more than that. "Bisping's the champ and (Silva) knocked the guy out". Silva wants his crack at McGregor inside the octagon before it slips away the same way a potential fight with Georges St-Pierre seems to have had the window closed. (more...)

Jose Mourinho confident Zlatan Ibrahimovic will stay Manchester United Jose Mourinho confident Zlatan Ibrahimovic will stay Manchester United
- February 12, 2017

The second half began exact same as the first as United came out fast and nearly doubled their lead when Martial once again ran at the Watford defence to create some space in the box but his left footed shot just went wide of the goal. It is understood United intend to go to the U.S., although Woodward would speak only on the make-up of the tour. That was unlike United's 20-goal leading scorer but this performance was very like the displays now expected from Mourinho's side. (more...)

Coach Mike Krzyzewski returning to Duke Saturday Coach Mike Krzyzewski returning to Duke Saturday
- February 06, 2017

But despite still wearing a back brace, Krzyzewski was fully active, jumping up off the bench and moving normally during the Blue Devils' 72-64 victory Saturday afternoon against Pittsburgh. Communication on defense is still an issue. Luke Kennard (20.2 points, 5.4 rebounds) and Amile Jefferson (11.9, 9.3) have been the team's most consistent contributors, though Grayson Allen (15.6, 4.5, 3.9 assists) has stabilized things at the offensive end since taking over primary point guard duties.
