Big 12 basketball: Postseason awards shows that Kansas still owns the conference

The rest of the Big 12 contenders look alike in records and other credentials as two games separate fourth through ninth place, meaning they'll be fighting each other for NCAA bids along with schools from other conferences. Plenty of variables are in play at the Big 12 tournament, but it appears a minimum of six teams will qualify for the NCAA tournament-and as many as eight could make it if results fall the right way.

National Football League combine 2018: Mike Gesicki and two other diamonds in the rough

perth_map

Here's the problem with that strategy: he won't get there. One of the reasons of this is because the Giant have had no threat of a running game. It can also extend the career of Eli Manning . Josh Allen has accuracy issues. Baker Mayfield is a risk because of his height and the type of offense he should be playing in. After enduring a 1-31 record over the course of the last two seasons, including an 0-16 campaign in 2017, there is nothing more important for Cleveland in this draft ... Read More »

perth_map

But there is just so much to like about the Heisman Trophy victor, and the Patriots should consider him a potential successor to Tom Brady, who turns 41 in August.

perth_map

A little over a month later, the NFL Draft begins. Where nuance is frowned upon and film study is optional. In this social media era, one tailor-made for a gossipy event like the draft, that conversation can be deafening. A quarterback's personality is crucial to any team. This time of year, context can be lost in the haze of evaluation. "You have to lead in your own individual way", Rosen said. Read More »

Kirk Cousins between Jets and Vikings

Teams can't officially begin to negotiate with him or other free agents until March 12th. No way, in my estimation, do McCartney and Cousins eliminate them from the process before having the opportunity to meet with them and see precisely how far they would go before letting him leave their building without a contract.

The NFL combine record for the 40 is 4.22 seconds, set by Washington receiver John Ross a year ago. In addition to the speedy run, Chark had a 40-inch vertical leap to lead the receivers.
