11 takeaways from college football¡¯s returning starters list for 2017

Kirby Smart¡¯s Georgia brings back an estimated 17 starters and a whole lot of talent in 2017. Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports
Game Kids Kelvin Beachum Jersey Thanks to huge amounts of annual roster turnover and a general variance of skill and consistency between 18-to-22-year-olds, college football remains damn near impossible to predict from year to year, beyond a few obvious things. But that, of course, is why we love it so dearly.

There¡¯s at least one simple way to start predicting who will be good next season. That¡¯s eyeing teams¡¯ depth charts and picking out who returns the most.
Elite Casey Hayward Jersey
The intrepid Phil Steele does this with his annual preview magazine, and he¡¯s posted on his website a chart with all 130 teams¡¯ returning starters. Attempting to use raw starter totals doesn¡¯t always capture each team¡¯s nuance, but it¡¯s a good start. Our Bill Connelly has improved upon raw starter numbers with his returning production chart.

So, let¡¯s use them both to try and find some answers to who brings back what, and what it says about the 2017 season.

1. Texas has a load coming back, so don¡¯t worry much about that recruiting class.
Yes, it was a shock to see the Longhorns struggle recruiting-wise in the 2017 class. They only signed one of the top 20 players in the state and had their worst class of the rankings era. But when you dig deeper, Texas has a good amount of talent coming back to build on the transitional recruiting class.

The Longhorns bring back 10 defensive starters and seven offensive starters, per Steele. Some are excellent, like offensive tackle Connor Williams.

2. The Big Ten¡¯s Michigan teams lose a ton.

3.

Tahir Whitehead will start at the middle linebacker spot in place of Tulloch.

Initially, the route looks clear — Cromartie has the outside receiver and is playing about ten yards off of him.

However, in a brilliantly designed scheme, the Cardinals get precisely what they wanted, and Kap takes the bait. Cromartie, who’s had his eyes in the backfield the whole time, jumps the route, and should’ve had a pick six. He drops it, but what a playcall! You can see Matheiu deeper adjusting for the Cromartie jump by taking the deep receiver, but this is still a pretty dangerous play by the defense.

Like I said, I don’t know if the Cardinals will continue to exceed expectations and run away with the division or if they’ll come back down to earth and succumb to some of their losses. Right now you have to respect the way they’re playing. They’ve got a chip on their shoulder from being overlooked. They’ve got no quit in them (three comeback wins), and most importantly, they seem to really believe in the system and in themselves. Arians has put together an interesting team in Arizona.

Tulloch has played in 131 consecutive games and has made 75 straight starts, so this injury is significant regardless. He had a torn labrum in 2009, but he played through that injury with the Tennessee Titans. Tulloch has already said that he plans to be back next season, so there’s no thoughts about potentially calling it a career after a lengthy and successful time in the league.

Tahir Whitehead will start at the middle linebacker spot in place of Tulloch. It’s his first career start.

Marshall and Cutler share a special alliance. Cutler was there for Marshall in Denver when they first became teammates and has been supportive of him in Chicago. Cutler can reach Marshall like few can. But he never takes credit for it. Or talks much about it.

The public may often view Cutler as aloof and he may be comfortable with their views, but it matters most to him what his teammates think. He is squarely into the mix with them.

Patriots lose final pick for Deflategate, Giants get off light for walkie-talkie scandal

John Breech has been at CBS Sports since July 2011 and currently spends most of his time writing about the NFL. He’s believed to be one of only three people in the world who thinks that Andy Dalton will…

Twenty-one months after originally disciplining the Patriots for Deflategate, the NFL has finally handed down New England¡¯s last punishment related to the scandal.
Tyrone Hill Youth Jersey The league released the official NFL Draft order on Friday, and in that release, it was noted that the Patriots will forfeit the 132nd overall pick in the draft. That¡¯s significant because it means that Deflategate will officially come to a close on April 29 when that pick goes by.
Elite Youth Reilly Smith Jersey
The original punishment for Deflategate was announced all the way back on May 11, 2015, a few weeks after Ted Wells finished his controversial investigation. Shortly after the release of his report, Tom Brady was hit with a four-game suspension, the Patriots were fined $1 million and the team was also docked two draft picks — a 2016 first-round pick and a 2017 fourth-round pick.

¡°There¡¯s plenty of work for everybody to do, Blake included,¡± Coughlin told reporters. ¡°To raise the game to a higher level, it takes all components as well. That¡¯s why I mentioned the protection first of all. Being at the right place at the right time, the timing, taking care of the football, which is paramount to that position. There can be no way the ball is turned over to that extent. I think he¡¯d be the first one to say that he has a lot of work to do, but we all have a lot of work to do; I¡¯m going to put it that way.¡±

That¡¯s a way of saying that if Bortles doesn¡¯t do the work, Coughlin and company will find someone who will. Long before the Jaguars know whether Bortles can do the work, they¡¯ll have to decide whether to exercise the option for the fifth year of his rookie deal, which will equate to the transition tag for quarterbacks in 2017 (i.e., 11.409 percent of the 2017 salary cap).

Broken Kings fans abandon team, become ‘The Lion King’ subreddit

What does it take to break a fan? Years of suffering. A feeling there¡¯s no hope for the future. Trading your best player in a bad deal and being told later that your team had a better offer and passed. Sacramento Kings fans have experienced it all, and now their subreddit has broken in honor of the team¡¯s failures.

On Monday night, the members of r/kings decided enough was enough, and instead of talking about the team they would become a subreddit for The Lion King. Game threads are now devoted to rewatching the movie and the team roster on the page has been completely overhauled.

Quarterback Andrew Luck and his return from offseason shoulder surgery could be a draw for the Colts, but the reality is that they’re not a team that looks for extra attention. That’s not their make up. And the last thing they need are more distractions as they try to return to the playoffs for the first time since 2014 with new general manager Chris Ballard.

Their most entertaining personality in recent years — punter/comedian Pat McAfee — is now enjoying retirement at the young age of 29.
Elite Womens Niles Paul Jersey
That leaves Jim Irsay as the marquee figure because you never know what random comments the owner will make. Just check out Irsay’s Twitter page if you need further proof of that.

Elite Kids Rodney McLeod Jersey Another noticeable thing that will come out of cameras shadowing every move the Colts make is that people will see the number of clich¨¦s that coach Chuck Pagano likes to use.

Seahawks injury report for Super Bowl 2016: Kam Chancellor and Richard Sherman should play

The Seattle Seahawks are entering Super Bowl XLIX without many concerning injuries.

The most serious one is to All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman, who’s reportedly dealing with torn ligaments in his elbow, which he injured in the NFC Championship. He is listed as probable to play Sunday on the Seahawks’ final injury report of the week following Friday’s practice.

Authentic Youth Kenny Clark Jersey Strong safety Kam Chancellor is dealing with a bone bruise sustained in Friday’s practice and is probable for gameday. Chancellor exited practice with a wrap on his left knee after he fell near the goal line and suffered a bruise. Friday was the first time all week that Chancellor made the team’s injury report.

Currently, the most lucrative quarterback contract in the NFL is the seven-year, $126 million extension the Bears and Jay Cutler agreed on last spring. He’s guaranteed $54 million. Current MVP and Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers signed a five-year, $110 million deal that includes $55 million guaranteed and a $33 million signing bonus.
Josh Brown Game Jersey
The league and the NFLPA have yet to agree on a salary cap number for 2016, and projections have it anywhere from a slight uptick to $141.8 million to something beyond last year’s $10 million year-over-year jump in the cap limit.

Wilson has the most regular season wins of any quarterback over his first three seasons in the NFL. During those three seasons, the 2012 third-round pick has been the Super Bowl twice, winning it all in 2014 and trying to again this year.

April 1, 2013: Chicago Blackhawks acquire center Michal Handzus from the San Jose Sharks for a fourth-round pick.

It’s impossible, impossible, to go on like this

Sandoval admitted as much, saying he got “so complacent with the things I already accomplished.” And in two seasons with the Red Sox, he almost lost it all.

After ranking as one of the majors’ worst every-day players in 2015, Sandoval lost his job last spring to upstart Travis Shaw, started just one of the season’s first five games, and went 0-for-6 with four strikeouts. The exploding belt represented the depths of his humiliation.

Rock bottom wasn’t far behind. Because neither he nor the Red Sox were able to pinpoint how he injured his shoulder, conspiracy theorists doubted whether he was really hurt, only grudgingly coming around when highly regarded orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews confirmed the labrum tear. Sandoval’s season ended May 3 on an operating table.

“I want to play eight more years to show my son, so he can see his dad play growing up. You learn a lot of things from the mistakes you make when you get comfortable. I’ve heard a lot. My family has helped me do it.”

But hope is the defect of the human psyche. It makes the subsequent pain greater. Leo Tolstoy knew this:

“Always the same. Now a spark of hope flashes up, then a sea of despair

rages, and always pain; always pain, always despair, and always the same.”

We’ve been here before. Always the round of 16. Always a terrible performance in the first leg and then a hopeful one in the second. Always an exit. Bayern, Barcelona, Bayern, Bayern, Barcelona. Always the same. “It’s impossible, impossible, to go on like this.”

All the games aren’t alike though, and, within this madness, this despairing repetition, there’s some hilarity and stories to be found. And because the round of 16 seems to be Arsenal’s theme for the Champions League, here are 16 of those observations about the previous six exits.

Rhodes is entering the fifth-year option on his rookie deal

Jairus Byrd Authentic Jersey In addition to whatever they do in the draft, the Vikings need veteran solutions now to build a functional offense. Maybe they use one of those picks to acquire a left tackle. If the Eagles really do want to move on from Jason Peters, Minnesota could do worse than send a late-round pick to Philadelphia for a player who is signed to a reasonable two-year deal. Alternately, maybe the Vikings prefer to sign Andrew Whitworth in free agency and hope that the 35-year-old buys them time to find their left tackle of the future over the next two seasons.

Womens Donald Brown Jersey Lock up CB Xavier Rhodes. Perpetually one of the league’s most underrated cornerbacks, Rhodes is a Pro Bowl-caliber player who was finally recognized as such in 2016. NFL.com noted that Rhodes led the league in passer rating allowed this season, and while individual cornerback statistics are perpetually a work in progress, Rhodes’ play on tape matches the numbers.

Rhodes is entering the fifth-year option on his rookie deal, so he’ll be an unrestricted free agent after this season. The Vikings could get a relative discount by just going year-to-year with him if they were so inclined: They could pay him $41.9 million over the next three years if they choose to franchise Rhodes twice, whereas Janoris Jenkins just got $39.7 million over his first three years on the free market with the Giants. Rhodes would get more on the free market thanks to salary-cap inflation alone, in addition to the fact that he’s the better corner of the two. But it benefits both sides to figure out a long-term deal, so Rhodes should be locked up for years to come sooner rather than later.

Hightower’s second-half performance in Super Bowl LI reflected his value to the team, as he made four impact plays (a tackle for loss, strip sack, a drawn holding penalty, occupying two defenders to free up teammates for a sack) when the game was on the line. With some level of uncertainty at the other linebacker spot, Hightower’s presence is that much more important — not to mention he runs the defensive huddle and is a captain.

Skepticism about Atlanta’s recent insistence that Paul Millsap is completely off the market has been fairly rampant.

Al Woods Jersey
After all the buildup leading into Friday’s trip to the nation’s capital, Indiana endured a deflating reality check that spoiled the whole weekend, losing narrowly to the Wiz before returning home on tired legs and absorbing a 16-point pounding from struggling Milwaukee. The Pacers entered that showdown with Washington at 13-5 since Jan. 1, good for the league’s fourth-best record in 2017 to that point.
Adrian Wilson Jersey
Yet they also had played the league’s easiest schedule to that point, according to ESPN’s Basketball Power Index, with Indy not-so-coincidentally now just two games into a 10-game stretch that serves up eight teams with .500-or-better records. The two games against sub-.500 opposition in that stretch, in case you’re wondering, are Saturday’s date with the Bucks that Indy just lost … and a Feb. 25 visit to the increasingly inhospitable Heat.

Skepticism about Atlanta’s recent insistence that Paul Millsap is completely off the market has been fairly rampant. The Hawks, however, are adamant that Millsap is staying put in the wake of the Kyle Korver-to-Cleveland deal in early January … whether rival teams believe them or not.

Atlanta began sounding out teams about potential Millsap interest at the same time Korver was made available in early January. Then the team abruptly changed course and told Millsap he should plan to play out the season with the team he’s about to rep in his third successive All-Star Game, even if that means Atlanta risks losing the 32-year-old for nothing when Millsap hits free agency in July.

Now that the Jusuf Nurkic trade we’ve been anticipating for weeks has materialized at last, league sources say Danilo Gallinari is a prime Nugget to watch between now and the deadline. The Raptors and Clippers are among the teams said to be monitoring Gallinari’s availability, amidst a growing belief that Denver is prepared to move him, given that the Nuggets anticipate that Gallinari will bypass the final season of his current contract (valued at $16.1 million) and join Millsap on the open market, and they don’t plan to spend big to retain the Italian.

Luol Deng’s signing was underwhelming for most Lakers fans — and some staff

ON JULY 1, 2016, after being outmaneuvered in recent years, the Lakers decided to strike quickly by agreeing to terms on a combined $136 million over the next four years with 30-year-old Timofey Mozgov and 31-year-old Luol Deng.

According to sources, Kupchak was reluctant to allow Mozgov to be tempted by other offers, giving him a four-year, $64 million deal just minutes after free agency began. Deng heard offers from other teams, but sources indicated he had no other offers that extended beyond three seasons. The Lakers gave him four years and $72 million.

Consider that STRIVR is developing a “hangover experience” to demonstrate to NBA players what it’s like to play basketball with slower reaction times as a result of a long night of drinking and a lack of sleep. There is talk of creating experiences that allow injured players to feel as if they’re on the court while their teammates sweat out road games.

What is the value of helping people feel closer together and more empathetic? Jeremy Bailenson, founding director of Stanford University’s Virtual Human Interaction Lab, created “the plank” and other scenarios not just for basketball players but for all people. He’s a co-founder of STRIVR and works with companies such as Google, Facebook and Samsung. He says the most interesting development in VR may be diversity training to reduce bias.
Game Kids Tuomo Ruutu Jersey
LIKE MANY HYPED tech revolutions, the VR bonanza hasn’t taken off yet. While the short term has seen intriguing signs in beleaguered Detroit Pistons big man Andre Drummond (sporting a career-high 43.8 percent from the free throw line this season after incorporating virtual reality into his training), the long term is riddled with potential.
