    The Pac-12 is joining the rest of the Power Five for fall football.

The conference’s schedule will be released “in the coming days” and no fans will be allowed at games taking place on campuses. The Pac-12 championship game will be played Dec. 18, and the conference says teams will be eligible to...

We couldn’t ask for a better game to begin Saturday’s college football slate with Lane Kiffin making his coaching debut for the Ole Miss Rebels against the Florida Gators. While the Gators will be massive favorites in this one, Kiffin is always capable of surprising us.

    A thin blue line flag has been banned by a local high school in Neptune Beach, Florida following a series of complaints that circulated on social media, according to a report by News4Jax. According to the outlet, the Fletcher High School football team started carrying the pro-law enforcement flag last year, as a way for one of its players, Caelan Lavender, to honor his late father, Cpl. Andy Lavender. Mr. Lavender was a Jacksonville Beach police officer who unexpectedly passed away in August 2019 after 29 years in law enforcement, and was active in sports programs. “He was one of...

    In 2017, when Pittsburgh Steelers offensive lineman Alejandro Villanueva stood near the tunnel to the Pittsburgh locker room with his hand over his heart while “The Star-Spangled Banner” played, the former Army Ranger was the only member of his team to do so. Apropos of the moment, that game against the Chicago Bears was being played at Soldier Field. Villanueva, a Bronze Star recipient, said his decision was not an intentional violation of coach Mike Tomlin’s order for every team member to stay in the locker room until the anthem had concluded. It was the result of Villanueva asking the...

    Pete Carroll, Vic Fangio and Kyle Shanahan have been fined $100,000 for not wearing masks during their team's games this past Sunday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The Seahawks, Broncos and 49ers were fined an additional $250,000. The three fines added up to $1.05 million. The fines came a week after Troy Vincent, the NFL's executive VP of football operations, sent a strongly worded memo to all 32 teams reminding them of the importance of wearing face covering during games. The memo also stated that future discipline could be enforced to coaches who don't comply with the league's rules. This...

    There are no locks in sports betting. Always remember that. Even when the team you’re betting on has a 15-point lead in the fourth quarter, they can still blow it. And that’s how we come to one of the worst beats you’ll ever hear about. With seven minutes left on Sunday, the Atlanta Falcons led the Dallas Cowboys 39-24. Their odds on the in-game line was -3333. Someone bet $35,000 to win $1,050 on the Falcons’ moneyline, according to BetMGM. Oh, no.

    There is no vaccine for this kind of product, this kind of football, and there is no cure in sight for this football team. Worst Team In the NFL. M-E-S-S, Mess, Mess, Mess. This is on the head coach. There is, of course, blame to go around on everyone, starting at the top, with the owner, who was certain before 49ers 31, Jets 13 that there is a brilliant mind inside the head of Adam Gase. The brilliant mind was on the visiting sideline inside the head of Kyle Shanahan.

    Besides the obvious changes in formant and technical reach due to the coronavirus pandemic, Jimmy Kimmel’s third time as host saw a lot of firsts at the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards last night. For one, there was a host again after the TV Academy show ceremony tried to be like the 2019 Oscars and go without a frontman or frontwoman. Then there was the unprecedented total sweep by Canadian comedy Schitt’s Creek of every category it was nominated in. That sweep also saw a first for an import from the Great White North in a top series category. Additionally, with...

    [snip] Some of the team plans seemed more haphazard than Week One’s careful coordination. The Tennessee Titans were in the middle of pre-game warmups when the song started, causing the team to rush to the sidelines. Titans linebacker Rashaan Evans, safety Kenny Vaccaro, and defensive lineman Jadeveon Clowney took a knee, while defensive lineman Jeffery Simmons held his right fist in the air. Titans left guard Rodger Saffold knelt with center Ben Jones with his right hand on Saffold’s back. Right guard Nate Davis took a knee, as right tackle Dennis Kelly’s rested his left hand on Davis’ right shoulder....

    Anthem protests began in 2016, when San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick sat and later knelt during the anthem, followed by several other players for other teams doing the same thing. It was a significant factor in the 8% plunge in viewership for a league that had previously been seen nationwide as a great unifier. That ratings plunge continued the next year after the protests expanded in President Trump's first year in office. This time, the plunge was 9.7%. For years, the NFL was the glue that for generations gave a guy sitting in his game room in East Palestine,...

    It all seems par for the course for Cleveland. Baker Mayfield bounced back from a rough first week to lead the Cleveland Browns over the Joe Burrow-led Cincinnati Bengals, 35-30, on Thursday night. And approximately 6,000 fans were fortunate enough to watch in person when Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine announced earlier this month that 6,000 could attend despite the COVID-19 pandemic. The Browns (1-1) prepared fans with a detailed video on their website that delved into social distancing and safety protocols for FirstEnergy Stadium. Everyone attending had to sign a “health promise” and had specific entry times and locations. There...

    The NFL is rife with social justice messaging to the point of being unwatchable, but there are a few bright spots. Some players refuse to cave to the Black Lives Matter domination over the league. One such player is Steelers offensive lineman Alejandro Villanueva.According to CBS News, the Steelers were directed to wear the name of Antwon Rose, Jr. on the back of their helmets after the team took a vote. Rose was a 17-year-old who was shot by police in the back as he ran away from a vehicle he was a passenger in. Police had pulled the car...
