NFL players will be allowed to spice up their celebrations next season

There will be more ties. He noted a number of coaches said they expect a more aggressive approach to scoring with the shorter extra period.

In my opinion, this is a good change that shows that the National Football League heard some of the concerns, and Roger Goodell took the time to ... Read More

Duke lands commitment from Trevon Duval, top point guard in 2017

The consolation prize? Not much consolation at all - a 0.5 percent chance at the No. 1 overall pick, 0.6 percent chance at No. 2 and 0.7 percent at No. "He has a chance to go as high as No. 2 or No. 3 in this draft". A city that's been crying out for quality point-guard play for years (outside of the brief reign of Linsanity) would go bonkers over having Fultz or Ball running the show for the next decade.
