    A Detroit mural artist has been accused of hiding alleged Oxford High School shooter Ethan Crumbley's alleged fugitive parents at  studio. Andrzej Sikora has admitted giving Jennifer and James Crumbley shelter from 'death threats' in the wake of the massacre allegedly carried out by their son Ethan in Oxford, Michigan, last Thursday.  But he says he had no idea the pair had stayed at his Detroit studio overnight, and only discovered the Crumbleys stay after their arrest at 1:30am Saturday.  Jennifer, a realtor, has a longstanding professional connection with Sikora, who has completed work on at least one building at her behest.  Sikora's attorney, Clarence Dass, told DailyMail.com that the Polish-born painter hadn't knowingly shielded the Crumbleys from the law. Dass said the couple told his client on Friday that they were 'just staying for a few hours to avoid death threats.' Andrzej Sikora (pictured) is friends and business associates with the Jennifer and James Crumbley, the parents of alleged school shooter Ethan Crumbley, according to his lawyer Clarence Dass. The pair were found at the artist's studio on...
    Jennifer Crumbley, Ethan Crumbley, and James Crumbley appear in mugshots taken by the jail in Oakland County, Mich., in Dec. 2021. The parents of an alleged school shooter are in custody after authorities said they tried to flee, but investigators are still looking into whether anyone helped them. Enter artist Andrzej Sikora, 65. Authorities want to talk to him about James Crumbley, 45, and Jennifer Crumbley, 43, because they were found in his studio. Oakland County Undersheriff Mike McCabe said that an interview is likely to take place Monday, according to The Detroit News. Sikora’s attorney denies wrongdoing, reportedly saying his client did not know about the charges against them until after they were arrested. The Crumbley parents allegedly fled after being charged Friday with four counts each of involuntary manslaughter in Michigan. They were accused of buying a gun for their 15-year-old son Ethan Crumbley, who ended up allegedly using it to open fire at Oxford High School last Tuesday.

    ATLANTA (AP) — A milestone season for Pittsburgh and quarterback Kenny Pickett is continuing with a Peach Bowl matchup against Michigan State. No. 13 Pitt’s reward for its first Atlantic Coast Conference championship is the Panthers’ first New Year’s Six bowl since 2004 in the Dec. 30 game in Atlanta against No. 11 Michigan State. Pitt (11-2) moved up four spots to No. 13 in Sunday’s AP Top 25 following its 45-21 win over Wake Forest in the ACC championship game on Saturday night. Pickett threw for two touchdowns but his highlight was a 58-yard scoring run that included a fake slide. Pitt lost to Utah 35-7 in the Fiesta Bowl following the 2004 season in its last New Year’s Six game. Michigan State (10-2) closed its regular season by beating Penn State 30-27 on Nov. 27 as Payton Thorne threw two touchdown passes and ran for another. The Spartans feature a strong running game.

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Hassan Haskins ran for two second-half touchdowns and broke a school record while running back Donavan Edwards threw a 75-yard TD pass to help No. 2 Michigan capture its first Big Ten title in 17 years and a probable playoff berth with a 42-3 rout Saturday over No. 15 Iowa. Resurgent Michigan (12-1, No. 2 CFP) has won five straight and if it reaches the playoff, as expected, would need one more win to return to Indianapolis to play for its first national championship since 1997. It’s been an improbable run since coach Jim Harbaugh took a pay cut following a dismal 2020. The Wolverines started this season unranked and picked to finish in the middle of the Big Ten East, whose champion has won the last nine conference crowns. And it came on an emotional night when Michigan paid tribute to the victims from Tuesday’s school shooting, which resulted in the deaths of four students at Oxford (Michigan) High School. They handed the Hawkeyes (10-3, No. 13) their second straight title game loss and prevented coach...

    The College Football Playoff semifinal in the Orange Bowl will match surging Michigan against a Georgia team that went unbeaten through the regular season before a humbling loss to the defending national champion. The Dec. 31 matchup at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida, was set up when the Wolverines were slotted No. 2 and the Bulldogs No. 3 in the final CFP rankings released Sunday.

They had close wins against unranked Rutgers and Nebraska, and their only loss was 37-33 at Michigan State. But they got on a roll...

Sign up for the free Mother Jones newsletter.On Saturday, Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) posted a holiday-themed family photo to his Twitter account. The image featured a decorated Christmas tree, Massie’s smiling wife and kids, and…seven guns that appear to be a mix of semi-automatic rifles and machine guns. “Merry Christmas!” he wrote. “Santa, please bring ammo.” Merry Christmas! ???? ps. Santa, please bring ammo. ???? pic.twitter.com/NVawULhCNr — Thomas Massie (@RepThomasMassie) December 4, 2021 Massie shared the photo less than a week after prosecutors charged 15-year-old Ethan Crumbley for allegedly killing four people and wounding seven at his high school in Oxford, Michigan—the deadliest such shooting in the US this year. That timing, mixed with the jarring visual, evoked a barrage of criticism from Massie’s fellow lawmakers on both sides of the aisle, as well as from gun advocates.

    Georgia football fans are happy about making the College Football Playoff, even as a No. 3 seed. Well, the Georgia football team’s shot at a perfect season bit the dust on Saturday night in Atlanta.

Georgia will have a month to get over losing to Alabama badly in Atlanta, 41-24. For now, they’ve got a national semifinal game to get ready for. No. 3 Georgia will take on the No. 2 Michigan Wolverines in the Capital One Orange Bowl on New Year’s Eve for the Dawgs’ national semifinal game.Georgia football fans react to Dawgs making College Football PlayoffThere are mixed reviews to Georgia playing Michigan in the Orange Bowl, but the consensus is a very compelling national semifinal game between two college football blue-bloods.

    The Michigan Wolverines made the College Football Playoff after winning the Big Ten Championship.  After it seemed like chaos might ensue on the final weekend of the college football season, the playoff field is set…and ended up being rather predictable. Michigan, after defeating rival Ohio State and then winning their conference championship in back-to-back weeks, was well in the Final Four, while watching the Buckeyes just miss out on another chance at glory. Safe to say establishments in Ann Arbor were quite happy watching the reveal. Give Jim Harbaugh credit — he entered this season arguably on the hot seat, and turned around a program built on tradition. Now, Harbaugh has established some tradition of his own.

    IRVING, Texas (AP) — Cincinnati will play Alabama and Michigan will face Georgia on New Year’s Eve after being selected to the College Football Playoff as a surprise-free field of four was set Sunday. Fourth-seeded Cincinnati becomes the first team to break through college football’s glass ceiling and reach the CFP from a non-Power Five conference. The Bearcats (13-0) won the American Athletic Conference and head into the postseason as the only unbeaten team in the country. Their reward will be a matchup with the defending national champions in the Cotton Bowl. The Crimson Tide is in the playoff for the seventh time in the postseason format’s eight-year history after handing Georgia its first loss of the season in the Southeastern Conference title game Saturday. Alabama (12-1) seemed to a loss away from being eliminated from playoff contention heading into its game with Georgia. Instead, Bryce Young and the Tide lit up the Bulldogs’ vaunted defense to earn the top seed. Nick Saban’s Alabama dynasty has won three playoff championships to go along with three BCS titles since 2009. Georgia...

    The final CFP rankings are in and the four teams aren’t much of a surprise but the order of the four teams is up for debate. What did the playoff committee get right and get wrong? The CFP rankings are in and the College Football Playoff field is set. With Georgia losing to Alabama in the SEC Championship Game, Michigan beating Iowa for the Big Ten championship, Cincinnati winning the American Athletic Conference and Oklahoma State losing the Big 12 Championship Game, there wasn’t much suspense about which four teams would get in. However, there was some suspense about who would move up to the No. 1 spot with Georgia falling. Would it be Alabama moving up from No. 3 by virtue of their win over Georgia in such dominating fashion? Or would it be Michigan moving up from No. 2 to the top spot after a convincing win over Ohio State last week and over Iowa on Saturday night? There was a debate at the bottom half of the top four with Georgia and how far they should fall....
    The College Football Playoff field is set in stone. The committee announced Sunday afternoon that Alabama, Michigan, Georgia and Cincinnati will be the four teams playing for a national title this season. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) The semi-finals are (1) Alabama vs. (4) Cincy and (2) Michigan vs. (3) Georgia. There is obviously a ton to talk about here, but for the most part, I think these are the four teams people expected to make the field after Saturday night wrapped up.   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Alabama Football (@alabamafbl) Alabama dog walked Georgia in the SEC title game, Michigan destroyed Iowa to win the Big Ten and Cincy won the AAC over Houston. The only real question was whether or not there’d be much debate between Georgia and Notre Dame, and the Fighting Irish clearly didn’t win that fight. Georgia’s entire season was a joke. The Bulldogs were complete frauds. They didn’t play a single team that had at least 10 wins or...
    Championship Week was oddly comforting, and as a result, we don’t see too many controversy-worthy rankings in the final AP Poll of the regular season. Nick Saban told you this would happen. It’s a point that Kirby Smart seems absolutely dead set on ignoring. You cannot win without an offense. You have to have a good quarterback, and if you have an elite one, you’ve got it made. Defense does not win SEC Championships. It doesn’t win Big Ten Championships. It doesn’t win Pac 12 Championships. It doesn’t win ACC Championships. It can win you a Big 12 Championship if Oklahoma has an off-year, but that’s about it.

    (CNN)Connecticut Democratic Sen. Chris Murphy said he continues to work with his Republican and Democratic colleagues to pass gun safety legislation, especially after the deadly school shooting last week in Michigan."The fact of matter is we have the votes in the House, in the Senate, for universal background checks bill. We have a President who will sign it," he told CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union." "It's the rules of the Senate that prevent us from passing and we probably have 52, 53, 54 votes in the Senate for this. So the rules right now are what prevents us from being able to enact the will of the public."School district releases details of key events leading up to Michigan shootingHe added he was hopeful senators can resume negotiations on legislation that would close the gun show loophole."I wish my Republican colleagues didn't sort of have epiphanies on this issue only after mass school shootings, but that tends to be what happens," he said. "And so my hope is that in the next couple of weeks we can get...
