  • Devlin Hodges will get his first career NFL start when he suits up for the Steelers on Sunday night against the Chargers. It all happened fast for him.

  • Quarterbacks who throw for incredible numbers don't always win the Super Bowl, and while Trubisky doesn't project as a guy who's going to lead the league in any major passing category, he does have the work ethic and character to emerge as a leader who can take his team on a Super Bowl run. He did, after all, lead the Bears to a 12-4 record and what should've been a game-winning drive in last year's wild-card round. There is one troubling theme bubbling under the surface with Trubisky.

  • In the feud that everybody could see coming, President Donald Trump has responded to Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr's response to Trump's response to Kerr's non-response on the NBA's ongoing China controversy. The president fired off a tweet late Friday night mocking the coach as “weak and pathetic,” saying he “chocked [sic]” in his response to a question about China and shutting down any offer of a White House visit that Kerr's Warriors never signaled they would accept.


  • A Notre Dame-USC game that got testy at halftime ended in controversy on Saturday, as officials somehow failed to notice a wildly gesturing, presumably screaming man that was jumping up and down on the field during a game-deciding onside kick attempt for the Trojans. The man in question: Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly. The onside-kick attempt came after a Markese Stepp touchdown that cut Notre Dame's lead to three points at 30-27.


  • American Patrick Day was in a coma after suffering a serious head injury Saturday night following a vicious knockout by unbeaten Charles Conwell during a boxing card in Chicago, US media reported. US sports broadcaster ESPN reported that Day had emergency brain surgery and went into a coma, but did not say whether he fell into the coma or it was induced by the doctors. No details of the head injury were given and the promoter, Matchroom Boxing, did not issue a statement on Saturday night other than to say Day was transported to a local hospital.

  • This was a Florida team that entered the game giving up just 9.5 points per game, sixth-best in the nation, and that defense was lit up for 511 yards by a balanced LSU attack. The Joe Burrow Show will be a problem for Alabama, which has been forced to play a lot of young people on the defensive side due to injuries. In three SEC games, the Crimson Tide is surrendering 27.3 points and 441 yards, absolutely unheard-of numbers under Nick Saban.

  • When Al Horford claimed his free-agent path could have been different if he'd known Kemba Walker was coming to the Celtics to replace Kyrie Irving, many of us pointed back to the nearly impossible three-team sign-and-trade Danny Ainge would have had to execute in order to land both Walker and Horford in one move. Boston would have received Walker from the Hornets, sent Terry Rozier and his new contract to Charlotte and given Irving to Brooklyn along with an additional asset as an incentive to help the Celtics execute the trade. The Celtics could then re-sign Horford to the contract he wanted and then operated as an over-the-cap team to legally acquire Walker.

  • Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio lambasted a reporter who dared to question his offense. In a 38-0 loss, MSU mustered only 149 yards, turned it over twice (including a Brian Lewerke interception that was returned for a touchdown), gained just seven first downs and was 2-of-14 on third down. MSU didn't even get a single first down until the second quarter.
