    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Latest on President-elect Joe Biden (all times local): 1:20 p.m. President-elect Joe Biden says his national security team will lead the way in reflecting the fact that “America is back” on the world stage. During a speech Tuesday in Wilmington, Delaware, Biden said that his team would “embody my core beliefs that America is strongest when it works with its allies.” In rolling out his national security picks, including top posts for State Department and Department of Homeland Security, Biden said the nominees show “experience and leadership, fresh thinking and perspective and an unrelenting belief in the promise of America.” The State Department alone has seen a significant number of departures from its senior and rising mid-level ranks during the Trump administration. Many diplomats have opted to retire or leave the foreign service, given limited prospects for advancements under an administration they believed did not value...
    Urban Meyer shared his coaching philosophy on Big Noon Kickoff and it’s no wonder why he won three national championships in his career. Urban Meyer gave a coaching clinic on FOX’s Big Noon Kickoff that high-profile coaches at struggling programs should be sure to watch. For programs like LSU, Penn State and Michigan who entered the season with expectations only to struggle under the weight of those expectations, Meyer boiled down their problems down to three root causes. Trust issues, dysfunctional environment and selfishness are the causes of inner strife and when a team struggle, you can easily identify those problems throughout a program. Winning programs may have some of those issues but leadership and selflessness are able to root it out and overcome to maintain on a path toward winning and success.Urban Meyer’s coaching philosophy goes viralMeyer’s clip quickly went viral as it circulated on Twitter on Saturday afternoon...
    The fallout from a fatal shooting following dueling demonstrations at Denver's Civic Center Park on October 10 has gone national, with the right-wing media attempting to blame a Black Lives Matter protester for instigating the incident even though the fatal shot was allegedly fired by Matthew Dolloff, a man hired to serve as a security guard for a 9News team. In one video, that protester, identified in multiple outlets as Jacob Kelly, can be seen yelling, "Mace me, motherfucker" at Lee Keltner, the 49-year-old victim who was officially identified by the Denver coroner's office on October 12.

    For once, the Denver Broncos weren't predictable. The squad is excellent at humiliating itself on national television, so a fourth consecutive loss during the October 1 Thursday Night Football matchup against the woeful New York Jets seemed predestined, particularly given that the starting quarterback was Brett Rypien, an undrafted Boise State alum whose main claim to fame is being the nephew of Super Bowl-winning Washington standout Mark Rypien. Somehow, though, Denver managed to come out on top of a 37-28 score, likely guaranteeing the pink slipping of Jets head coach and ex-Broncos assistant Adam Gase. But even though the 0-4 Jets appear to be the worst team in the NFL right now, Mile High City diehards unwilling to give up on a season that already seems doomed responded to the victory on Twitter by debating who the outfit's QB going forward should be: Rypien; backup Jeff Driskel, whom the Boise boy...

    The U.S. Soccer Federation (USSF) is thinking about potentially doing away with its policy that requires national team players to stand during the national anthem, according to a report.

    The U.S. Soccer Federation will consider doing away with its policy requiring national team players to stand for the national anthem, according to ESPN. The federation’s board of directors will meet on Tuesday — at the behest of its president Cindy Parlow Cone — to discuss the policy and likely bring it to a vote Friday. A repeal of the rule would take effect immediately, but would still need to pass a vote from the National Council at the next general meeting scheduled for February or March of 2021 to fully stick. The rule adopted in 2017, which states that national team representatives “shall stand respectfully during the playing of national anthems at any event in which the Federation is represented,” was passed in response to women’s national team star Megan Rapinoe kneeling during the anthem before a game in 2016. She did so to show solidarity with then-49ers quarterback...
