    Law & Order Gets Another New Spinoff Called For the Defense New U.S. aid chief to steer agency away from Trump era isolationism The linebacker position is a big concern for Tennessee heading into the 2021 season, but a big transfer commitment has calmed the fears of Vol Nation, at least for now as the Volunteers landed a commitment from Texas transfer Juwan Mitchell on Monday. Mitchell led the Longhorns in tackles during the 2020 season with 62 total in 10 games.  © Provided by CBS Sports Mitchell, a 6-foot-1, 230-pound senior from Newark, New Jersey, registered 4.5 tackles for loss, one quarterback hurry and one pass breakup for the Longhorns last season.

    CRISTIANO RONALDO'S brace against Udinese kept Juventus' Champions League hopes alive on a night the Old Lady was forced to hand over her crown. Juve saw their nine-year reign as Serie A champions end on Sunday when Atalanta drew 1-1 at Sassuolo, a result that effectively led to Inter Milan winning their first Scudetto in 11 years. 2Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice against Udinese But that doesn't mean Andrea Pirlo's men don't have something to fight for as they still need to qualify for next season's Champions League. And their hopes are still very much alive thanks to Ronaldo's performance at the Dacia Arena. The star forward led Juventus to a 2-1 victory over Udinese and proved what a difference maker he still is despite his advanced age of 36. The hosts led for most of the match following Nahuel Molina's opener after just 10 minutes. FREE BETS: GET...

    Matt Campbell, Iowa State Cyclones. (Mandatory Credit: Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports) This is how a 16-team College Football Playoff field would have played out last season. With the College Football Playoff potentially expanding to as many as 16 teams in the coming years, let’s take a look at how a 16-team format could have played out a season ago.

    LINE of Duty fans fear the season six finale will be the last ever episode as H is unmasked and there's no sign of season seven. The BBC crime drama added an extra, seventh episode to its sixth series, and Sunday's penultimate show dropped some huge bombshells, paving the way for a stunning climax. 5Line of Duty fans fear the series six finale will be the show's last ever episodeCredit: BBC Fans hope this will include the eventual unveiling of 'H', but equally, they are worried that unmasking the villain will mean the end of Line of Duty altogether.

    Kanye West Raises $1 Million for DMXs Family with Sold-Out Balenciaga T-Shirt Collaboration Apple invests $1 billion to build new campus in North Carolina CINCINNATI – With Cincinnati quarterback Desmond Ridder and his longtime girlfriend, Claire Cornett, expecting their first child earlier this spring, Ridder found himself in the middle of a parental rite of passage. A few months after helping push the Cincinnati football program into the midst of the College Football Playoff conversation, Ridder found himself amid a different daunting task. The couple set out to assemble their daughter’s crib, and they decided on building it in the living room because the baby’s room was cluttered.

Huskies coach Jimmy Lake announced on Wednesday that linebacker Zion Tupuola-Fetui suffered a torn Achilles during a scrimmage the previous week. The injury requires surgery and Tupuola-Fetui will miss anywhere between six and 10 months. Though Lake sounded optimistic that his top defender could return at some point for the upcoming season, it's possible he could miss the entirety of it depending on his rehab.  "He's got a smile on his face, and he told me he's going to be back and ready to go at some point during the 2021 season," Lake said, per the Seattle Times.

    A game like last night could be another launching point for Islanders’ Anthony Beauvillier By: Rob Taub April 21, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditOnce in a hockey season, there’s always a game from somebody that makes you go “Wow”. That was Anthony Beauvillier’s four-point game last night in the Islanders’ 6-1 smashing of the New York Rangers. It was the kind of showing that Isles fans have come to know from the one they call Beau whenever he sees the Blueshirts on the opposite side. Beauvillier now has 20 points in 19 games against the Rangers in his career and two four-point nights on his ledger, the other a couple seasons back in a 7-4 Isles win in November 2018. More importantly, Beauvillier had his best game of the season when his team needed it the most, as the Islanders’ offense had gone cold the previous...
    A look at what’s happening around the majors today: ___ WELL RESTED Jacob deGrom and the Mets hope to finally play some baseball. New York has had four games in six days either postponed or suspended due to weather, including a snow out Friday night for the opener of their series at Colorado. The club has had seven postponements this season, including all three games of its opening series against Washington, which was called off due to the Nationals’ COVID-19 outbreak. Saturday’s forecast in Denver looks chilly but clear, making it likely deGrom (0-1, 0.64) will finally get back on the mound two days after he was initially supposed to take his turn. New York’s ace will start the opener of a doubleheader against Chi Chi Gonzalez (1-0, 3.60), and Mets lefty Joe Lucchesi (0-0, 0.00) will face Germán Márquez (0-1, 4.02) in the late game.

    Getty Philadelphia 76ers star Joel Embiid reacts during a game against the Dallas Mavericks. At this particular moment in time, things are going about as well as they ever have for Philadelphia 76ers star Joel Embiid on the hardwood. Entering Friday night’s action, the Sixers find themselves in sole possession of the Eastern Conference’s top spot. And many consider Embiid the MVP frontrunner. However, things haven’t always been so rosy for the outspoken big man. Even after he conquered the injuries that robbed him of his first two years in the NBA, he has continued to face trials and tribulations throughout his basketball journey. Such was the case last season when the Sixers stumbled to a 43-30 record and were ousted from the playoffs in embarrassing fashion after a 4-0 sweep at the hands of the rival Boston Celtics. In an interview with ESPN’s Zach Lowe hitting the...
    California is typically glowing with new bright green growth by April, but areas are currently covered with dead vegetation due to a 'disappointing' wet season that leaves the state vulnerable to wildfires. The Wildfire Interdisciplinary Research Center sampled flammable shrubs found throughout California and found record low moisture values. The average fuel-moisture content (FMC) for some regions is 137 percent, but this year experts calculated a shocking low of 97 percent in some parts of California. FMC is a measure of the amount of water in a fuel, or vegetation, available to a fire, and the latest calculations suggests 'fire season 2021 is looking grim.'

    Grace Kinstler: 5 Things to Know About the ‘American Idol’ Front-runner LG, SK Reach $1.8 Billion Settlement to End EV Battery Spat Baseball is a grind — and the fantasy version of the game is no different. And because it's a grind, baseball features streaks. Hitters can get hot at the plate, seemingly seeing beach balls thrown at them. Pitchers can get hot on the mound, too. And of course, both can get freezing cold. In this space, we'll take a weekly look at who's hot and who's not — and whether you should believe in the streak.

    GELSENKIRCHEN, Germany (AP) — Schalke won a Bundesliga game for only the second time in 15 months as Suat Serdar scored the only goal in a 1-0 win over Augsburg on Sunday to delay the last-place club’s seemingly inevitable relegation. A goalkeeping blunder handed Schalke the lead when Augsburg’s Rafal Gikiewicz dropped a none-too-threatening cross from Klaas-Jan Huntelaar at Serdar’s feet. The midfielder marked his 24th birthday by knocking the ball past the prone Gikiewicz for his first league goal since January 2020. Schalke goalkeeper Ralf Fährmann kept his team in the game with key saves, blocking Ruben Vargas’ attempt after a defensive error gave Augsburg’s Swiss winger the ball, and punching away an audacious bicycle kick from Marco Richter. It marked the first win for Schalke under coach Dimitrios Grammozis, who started with on-loan Arsenal players Sead Kolasinac and Shkodran Mustafi on the bench and only brought them...
    A look at what’s happening around the majors today: ___ PITCHING CLINIC A pair of three-time Cy Young Award winners square off when Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers face Max Scherzer and the Nationals in a marquee matchup between the past two World Series champions. Los Angeles is looking for a three-game sweep of its first home series this season, and Dodgers starters are 5-0 in their last seven outings. The Dodgers have won five of their last six regular-season games against the Nationals and are 11-4 versus Washington over the past four seasons. But the Nats beat Los Angeles in a five-game playoff series on the way to their 2019 title. LIKE THOSE LEFTIES AL MVP José Abreu and the Chicago White Sox will try to win their 18th straight game when facing a left-handed starter. That would tie the major league record set by Atlanta from...
    Arkansas running back Rakeem Boyd hopeful for a chance in the NFL after an injury-plagued senior season. The NFL was ready and waiting for Rakeem Boyd after his stellar junior season where he ran for 1,133 yards, a whopping 6.2 yards per carry and eight touchdowns. Even more impressively, those numbers came on a bad Arkansas football team that finished 2-10, showing Boyd can be productive with little help around him. That camera could come back again in the NFL for Boyd. The list of late round or un-drafted free agent running backs who have had lengthy careers is long. Green Bay’s Aaron Jones finished fourth in the league with 1,104 yards last season after being a fifth-round pick in 2017. “I’ve basically accomplished most of my goals. We just gotta keep writing this story. The book is still open, now it’s the next page,” Boyd said. Boyd is training...
    RB Leipzig manager Julian Nagelsmann revealed that he had to persuade Tyler Adams to stay with the club this past summer as the midfielder considered a potential transfer. Nagelsmann admitted that the U.S. men’s national team star was wondering if his future would best be served elsewhere, but he was convinced to stay after some conversations with his coach. The RB Leipzig boss says he’s thrilled to still have Adams with the club, as he says the American midfielder is growing into a top player. What did Nagelsmann have to say? “In the summer he was dissatisfied,” the RB Leipzig boss said, according to RBLive. “He was wondering whether it would be better for him elsewhere. I was able to persuade him to stay,” He added:”We got together more, also when it comes to the way I think about football.” Adams at RB Leipzig Adams made the move to Germany...
    Lionel Messi is set to play his 45th - and possibly final - "clásico" match against Real Madrid. The star status of the Barcelona forward, whose contract expires this summer, has been built on numerous titles and scoring records, as well as his exploits in one of soccer’s top rivalries. But not even Real coach Zinedine Zidane wants Saturday to be Messi’s last chance to torment Madrid. "I don’t want this to be the last ‘clásico’ for Messi," Zidane said on Friday.

    (CNN)After the worst wildfire season ever in 2020, California is bracing for more destruction this year due to worsening drought conditions and above-normal temperatures. "We had world record-breaking high temperatures in our own backyard in California... 130 degrees in our state," Governor Gavin Newsom said Thursday as he launched a $536 million funding package to boost fire prevention projects.The outlook already ominous as 91% of the state is suffering from drought and has reported consecutive dry months since last October, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor. "Even record investments in this space are not enough to deal with the magnitude of that reality," Newsom said. "But yes, we need to do more on forest management and vegetation management."The new legislation will invest millions of dollars toward hiring additional fire personnel, buying mechanical equipment, building defensible spaces and developing vegetation-management projects that will control and slow down the fires, Newsom said.Read...

    The Islanders’ win last night might have been their most impressive all season By: Rob Taub April 7, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditThere’s been a lot of efforts from the Islanders out of their first 39 games that can be spotlighted for how good they were. None though might have been more important and more impressive than last night’s 1-0 shutout win over the Washington Capitals, which put them back in a tie for first place in the MassMutual East Division, had a playoff-feel to it from start to finish. The two teams met just six days ago with the Isles putting up an eight spot on the Caps in a 8-4 win. So you would think last night’s tilt would be the polar opposite. You’d be correct. But from an Islanders perspective, the game played right into their wheelhouse — low-scoring and tight checking. ...
    INDIANAPOLIS — The NCAA men’s basketball championship, since it became colloquially known as the NCAA Tournament, since it became officially trademarked as March Madness, has given us such an abundance of gifts it is as if Santa Claus is the perpetual selection committee chair. Each March, we look beneath the tree, and the bounty overwhelms. But the tournament almost never — maybe never never — gives us this. MORE MARCH MADNESS: Live scores | Updated bracket | TV schedule It does not give us Ali-Frazier. It does not give us the 1986 Fiesta Bowl, Penn State vs. Miami.

    TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Pascal Siakam scored 36 points in three quarters and the Toronto Raptors routed the Golden State Warriors 130-77 Friday night, with the largest margin of victory in the NBA this season. Toronto shot 53.4% in the game and won for just the second time in 15 games. The Raptors pushed their lead to 61 points when Malachi Flynn hit a short jump shot with 6:29 remaining. Gary Trent Jr., who posted a career-high 31 points Wednesday in his fourth game with the Raptors, finished with 24 points and OG Anunoby added 21.

    OAKLAND — All life needed was a little baseball. It wasn’t all back to normal Thursday evening at the Oakland Coliseum — and the home crowd had little to root for in an 8-1 Opening Day loss — but as lifelong A’s fan James Sanos observed from his right-field seats under the 80-degree sun, “Walking in here, it just felt like a game in the middle of June.” However, he said, tugging at the logo-adorned mask on his face, “Once we can get rid of these and everybody can be here, then we will feel normal.” A moment later, Sanos excused himself. He had to boo Houston Astros star Jose Altuve. Sanos and his wife, Amanda — season-ticket holders in the rapturous right-field seats who were married in a ceremony on the diamond two summers ago — were among the 10,436 lucky fans to witness the Bay...
    Victor Oladipo got swept out of the first round of the playoffs last season by Miami, and when that series concluded he had no doubt the Heat would end up in the NBA Finals. He was right.

    Mike Soroka surrendered a homer while working two innings for the Atlanta Braves in his 2021 debut Tuesday, a big step in the former All-Star’s comeback from a torn Achilles tendon. Soroka got into the Braves’ final game of spring training at Fort Myers, Florida, taking over in the bottom of the sixth with Atlanta leading the Boston Red Sox 4-2.

    Trey Lance. AP Photo/Bruce Kluckhohn Trey Lance is one of the most compelling prospects of the 2021 NFL Draft. While he played just one game last year, it's easy to see why scouts are falling in love with Lance. Between his cannon arm and impressive rushing ability, comparisons to Josh Allen spring to mind.

    The New England Patriots and Miami Dolphins have always shared a sense of rivalry owing to the fact that they belong to the same division. Over the past two decades with Head Coach Bill Belichick, the Patriots have dominated the division. But the franchise had an uncharacteristically poor season in 2020. Finishing behind the likes of the Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins in the AFC East, the team failed to make the playoffs. However, when it comes to head-to-head bragging rights, the Patriots and Dolphins shared a win apiece. But during the two sides’ first meeting in 2020, things got a little bit heated. Once the game finished 21-11 in favor of the Patriots, a scuffle broke out between some of the players including Patriots QB Cam Newton and then Dolphins linebacker Kyle Van Noy. Van Noy who was earlier a Patriots player had joined the Miami Dolphins for one...
    Getty Former Lakers JaVale McGee & Rajon Rondo. After weeks of speculation, the NBA trade deadline ended up being underwhelming for the Los Angeles Lakers.

    Down two in the fourth quarter Tuesday night, Warriors guard Kelly Oubre Jr. swerved into the paint, encountered two defenders and elevated for a floater, using his 7-foot-3 wingspan to drop in a tying field goal with 4:09 remaining. Oubre’s shot gave the Warriors a chance late in Tuesday’s 108-98 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers at Chase Center. And though Philadelphia used a 9-0 spurt to pull away in the final moments of Golden State’s near comeback win, Oubre’s performance showed why the Warriors may want to keep him beyond Thursday’s trade deadline, and why other teams have been interested in acquiring him. With Stephen Curry sidelined for the third straight game with a bruised tailbone, Oubre carried Golden State (22-22) with 24 points on 8 of 14 shooting (2 of 4 from 3-point range), 10 rebounds and three assists. His 13 points in the third...

    Stars celebrating milestone birthdays in March 2021 10 Reasons To Think Twice Before Investing In Real Estate Steve Kerr stood by his recent comments on Monday that he felt coaching last year’s horrendous Golden State Warriors team was more enjoyable than coaching the team that went to the 2019 Finals. He isn’t, though, happy with a Bay Area media member for taking a quote of his on the subject out of context and trying to make it seem like Kerr was taking a shot at Kevin Durant. Not one bit. Steve Kerr ‘angry’ over ‘terribly unfair shot’ Kerr, speaking on The Ringer NBA Show, said that he “enjoyed last season, when we had the worst record in the league, more than I enjoyed that last season when we went to the Finals.” Golden State went just 15-50 last season in a brutal attempt to back up their run to...

    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — “If you want to actually get the story accurate, I encourage you to listen to the podcast,” said an angry Warriors coach Steve Kerr referring to a tweet that he says took his words out of context. Kerr was referring to a comment he made last week during a podcast interview with sports writer Logan Murdock on The Ringer’s ‘Real Ones’ podcast. He compared the stress of a five-year championship run, including the last year with NBA star Kevin Durant, with the team’s dismal, last place 2019-20 season, when Kerr found himself coaching a group of young inexperienced players and the team won only 15 games out of 50.

    TOTTENHAM boss Jose Mourinho has been left to rue past comments he made about the quality of the Europa League following his side's humiliating exit on Thursday night.

    Now what Fernando Alonso He has returned to the competition where he became a legend, one of the images that fans expect the most is that of the Spaniard beating the copper again with Lewis hamilton. For this it will be necessary that the Mercedes w12 is not as superior as its predecessors, and that the Alpine A521 is slightly better than previous Renault. If these two premises are fulfilled throughout the season, scenes similar to those that have already been seen in the preseason will be seen. It was just over an hour into the final afternoon of pre-season testing in Bahrain when Alonso and Hamilton met on the track. English, with quite a few control problems on a W12 who seems much more nervous than I expected, he was on a warm-up lap … while the Spaniard did it on a fast lap. That led a...
    Having won the last race of the 2020 Formula One season, Red Bull showed it might be a strong challenger to Mercedes this year after leading the final day of pre-season testing on Sunday. With the evening sun setting on Bahrain’s desert track in Sakhir, Max Verstappen topped the leaderboard after his new teammate Sergio Perez was fastest in the morning run. “I am pleased with where the car is, there is definitely good potential in it,” Perez said. “The overall picture is a positive one.” Verstappen, who won the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix with a commanding drive last December, also topped Friday’s first testing day. World champion Lewis Hamilton span his car 360 degrees on track late in Sunday’s session and finished the day only fifth fastest and, encouragingly for Red Bull, about one second behind Verstappen’s time.

    SHEFFIELD, England (AP) — Sheffield United started preparing for life outside the Premier League by announcing the departure of manager Chris Wilder on Saturday with the team in last place and headed for relegation. Wilder had been manager of his boyhood club for nearly five years, leading the Blades from the third division to the Premier League. They had been challenging for European spots last season, but they’ve won just four games in the current campaign. The decision for Wilder to leave was made “following discussions” and agreed to by mutual consent, the club said. “We are confident that all Blades fans around the world will join us in thanking Chris for his hard work, commitment and expertise in driving the club,” the team said in a statement. “Now the club will turn its attention to completing the season as strongly as possible and if we are relegated, to preparing...

    LeBron James has been an NBA All-Star captain for all four years the league has used the format. But now he’s saying this season was his last. LeBron James has had plenty of iconic All-Star moments in his career. He’s made 17 straight All-Star games, starting with his second season in the league, he’s been the MVP of the All-Star Game three separate times and for the past four seasons, he’s been one of the top-two fan vote-getters and served as captain for one of the two teams. The wrinkle of captains choosing their teams from the pool of All-Stars has injected some life into the circus of All-Star weekend, in no small part by putting the biggest stars and the friendships and rivalries in the center of the action.

    LAS VEGAS (AP) — Jill Townsend scored on an 15-foot fadeaway jumper as time expired and No. 18 Gonzaga rallied past second-seeded BYU 43-42 on Tuesday in the West Coast Conference championship to advance to the NCAA Tournament.

    Attack on Titan Final Season is nearing its last episode, and Crunchyroll has a brand-new trailer to build the hype. The final episode of this season will be episode 16, which is set to air on March 28, but it’s not exactly clear how it’s going to wrap up the story. As you might have been able to guess based on where this season was headed, the trailer for the final episode includes a lot of battles. The trailer doesn’t give much away, frequently cutting from one bloody or explosive scene to the next, without spoiling much of what’s coming. One thing that fans might find a little odd, though, is that the trailer’s title very specifically says that it’s for the season finale, not the series finale. This is extra notable because the Attack on Titan manga, which provides the anime with its source material, won’t end...
    Germany’s top division soccer clubs generated the third highest revenue figures ever last season, despite the coronavirus pandemic. Revenue for the 18 Bundesliga clubs for 2019-20 was 3.8 billion euros ($4.5 billion), down from 3.95 billion ($4.7 billion) the season before, according to the German soccer league’s annual report released on Tuesday. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM The governing body, known as the DFL, said games in empty stadiums without supporters due to the hygiene measures against the virus contributed to revenue dropping by 5.7% across the top two divisions. "The impact of the coronavirus will be even more pronounced in the 2020-21 season. One example of this is the international transfer market. In addition, a further decline in revenue from ticket sales is unavoidable," the DFL said. Most of last season was played with ticket-buying fans present.

Kilometers of lines would be written to try to go to the top level and claim things. In 2021, however, the acquisition of Blake Griffin is just a move to add quality to the roster, as the 32-year-old is by no means the same player he was. Injuries have made him more “heavy” and by no means the player with… springs on his feet jumping over cars in the last decade.

    DEFEAT to Fulham left Liverpool with a six-game Anfield losing streak and the worst decline of any Premier League champion in history. The Reds romped to the title last season, their first in 30 years, with a hugely impressive 99 points to their name. 5 Few expected Jurgen Klopp's side to match that tally again yet even the most pessimistic of fan would have dismissed the sort of collapse that was to follow. Mario Lemina made hay on an uncharacteristic Mohamed Salah mistake at Anfield to fire 18th-placed Fulham to a huge 1-0 win. It followed victories on Merseyside for Manchester City, Everton, Burnley, Chelsea and Brighton in recent weeks, as well as a defeat away to Leicester.

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Tahj Eaddy hit a 3-pointer with 1.4 seconds remaining, giving Southern California its only lead of the game and a 64-63 victory over UCLA on Saturday to keep alive the Trojans’ chance to win their first Pac-12 regular-season title outright since 1960-61. First-place Oregon leads the league by percentage points and would have to lose to Oregon State on Sunday night for USC (21-6, 15-5) to claim the title by one game. Eaddy took a pass from Ethan Anderson and was nearly falling out of bounds on the left baseline when he launched a well-contested 3-pointer — just the fourth made by USC. He was mobbed by his jumping teammates. The players could be heard celebrating in their lockerroom as empty Pauley Pavilion immediately went quiet. Eaddy was sliding on the court seconds earlier trying to hold onto the ball, but wasn’t called for traveling....
    FANS are calling on the EFL to take action after Rotherham called off their match at Brentford and Tuesday's fixture with Luton due to COVID-19. It is the second time this season that the relegation-threatened Millers have been forced to postpone games because of positive test results in their squad. 1Paul Warne's Rotherham have had a string of postponements this season due to positive Covid-19 testsCredit: Rex Features They also cancelled fixtures against Derby and Middlesbrough earlier in the campaign while a further THREE games were rearranged due to a frozen pitch. And now fans want the Football League to step in and take action in the form of a points deduction. Coventry City fan Sean Kay tweeted: "Should be point deduction for the amount of games they've postponed this season - boring now." While fellow Sky Blues fan Paul Edgington added: "Come on @EFL @FA, you not falling for...
    ARSENAL have told Matteo Guendouzi he has played his last game for the club and will be sold in the summer, reports say. The Frenchman was shipped on loan to Hertha Berlin in Germany at the start of the season. 2Arsenal have told Matteo Guendouzi he will be sold in the summer, reports sayCredit: Getty Images - Getty It came after Guendouzi fell out with manager Mikel Arteta, when the Spaniard returned to the Emirates in 2019. Arsenal looked at selling the midfielder in the summer, offering him in swap deals. But they had to settle for a loan, with Guendouzi since making 18 appearances for Hertha. He has impressed in the Bundesliga, sparking hope he could return to Arsenal once his spell away expires. But according to Football Insider, Arteta has no plans in bringing Guendouzi back into his squad. And Arsenal...
    One of the most revealing data points in the college football offseason cycle was made public earlier this week: The list of invitees to the 2021 NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis. Of course, there is no combine this year, at least not in a congregate setting in Indianapolis — players are working out on campus and interviewing with teams remotely. But that didn’t stop the NFL talent evaluators from selecting the prospects who would have participated in-person. All 323 of them. That’s roughly the same number of invitations as in previous years and more than enough to illuminate the dispersal of high-end talent in major college football. The Pac-12 had 36 players on the invite list — not as many as in the past. Presumably, the extra year of eligibility for seniors served as a limiting factor, but we’re unsure of the extent: Most of the players good enough to be...
    Epic Games / FortTory As Season 5 of Fortnite comes to a close, the crossovers are winding down with it and we now have a look at the final skin. While we’ve already known where the portal would show up, we didn’t really have a lot more to go off. A new Reality Log should release at some point today that will drop all sorts of hints and teases. We also can’t forget that the portal is now something we can study and look at, so the picture is that much clearer. It doesn’t look like this will end up being Peter Griffin walking through this portal, so we don’t really know what the plan is for that one. While the door isn’t shut on that crossover, we’ll have to put it on the backburner and focus on this upcoming one.Who is It? The New upcoming portal pic.twitter.com/zFCvKkeewk...
    NBA : By Antonis Stroggylakis / [email protected] After six straight wins – the latest one being a historic 30-point rout over reigning EuroLeague champion CSKA Moscow – Anadolu Efes coach Ergin Ataman believes that this team is superior to the 2019-2020 squad that had the top place in the EuroLeague standings before the cancelation of the season. “Everybody is asking me if we found the same level as last year. No, we’re better than last year,” Ataman said in his opening statement after the match vs. CSKA. He proceeded to use the words “perfect” and “perfectly” to describe various aspects of Efes‘ performance, in a manner he’s done multiple times over the last weeks and during his team’s spotless run. His players have given him a good reason to do so. Efes‘ victories have been of triumphant proportions since the 2019 EuroLeague finalists have won their...
    Let’s face it. One of the reasons the Raiders have been a subpar franchise for the better part of the last quarter century or so is because of their choices in free agency. One need look no further than the last two years, when injury or poor performance has been an issue with tackle Trent Brown, slot corner Lamarcus Joyner, wide receiver Tyrell Williams and linebacker Cory Littleton, defensive end Carl Nassib, to name a few. For purposes of listing the Raiders’ worst 10 free agent selections of the last 30 years, I’ll exempt those signed before the 2020 season. They arrived with no offseason and in a pandemic and the sample size is too small. Which doesn’t mean players such as Littleton and Nassib in particular couldn’t wind up being worthy of placement on a bottom-10 list at some point. On we go, with the...
    New York Giants: Last 2019 free agent gone with Golden Tate cut By: Cay North March 3, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditFree agency is the kind of thing that can build a team up. Many teams have acquired lasting players that way, and made the leaps they need to improve. But for the New York Giants, 2019 definitely wasn’t the year for them when it comes to free agents. We’re only a couple of years later in 2021 and none of the free agents from 2019 are still here. The 2019 free-agent class is now officially wiped out.

    Michigan State basketball is squarely on the NCAA Tournament bubble and in danger of snapping a lengthy run of March Madness appearances. There is a reason that many college basketball fans substitute Izzo for the word March come tournament time. The Michigan State Spartans have become NCAA Tournament fixtures under head coach Tom Izzo, who has always done a tremendous job getting his teams playing their basketball by the time March Madness rolls around. The Spartans have reached the dance for 22 straight seasons, the third-longest active streak in Division I, and Michigan State reached the Final Four when the NCAA Tournament was last held in 2019. The last edition of March Madness without Izzo’s team came back in 1997, which was his second year on the job.

    Three players from the Las Vegas Raiders who chose to opt out of last season because of COVID-19 concerns were cut by the team Monday. Linebacker Ukeme Eligwe and defensive end Jeremiah Valoaga were waived, and defensive back D.J. Killings was released, the Raiders announced in a short statement on Twitter.  RAIDERS’ JON GRUDEN MAY HAVE VIOLATED NFL TAMPERING POLICY WITH RICHARD SHERMAN PITCH They were the only players on the team to opt out of the season. Eligwe, 26, was drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in 2017, where he played 14 games.
