Goran Dragic’s nasty looking eye will keep him out of Heat vs. Pacers

In the Miami Heat’s game against the Toronto Raptors on Saturday, Dragic took a vicious elbow right to the eye. Unfortunately, due to the injury, Dragic won’t be able to play Sunday against the Indiana Pacers. And the above picture tells you everything you need to know about why that is the case.

The good news — Hassan Whiteside gave him a new nickname as a result of it — Drago, from Rocky IV.

Even though the loss total isn’t ideal, a 6-8 Top-50 record and 11-14 Top-100 record resulting from what’s now the nation’s best schedule (even with a mediocre SEC weighing down what was already the top non-conference slate) should be enough to make basketball history.

With all that being the case, it’s extremely doubtful that there will be any “region of death” talk once the brackets have been revealed Sunday evening.

Typically, there’s an established overall No. 1 seed and then at least a couple of teams on the seeding lines below that the public agrees are better than their second, third, or fourth-seeded brethren. When two or three of those teams wind up with the same path to the Final Four, the public cries foul and one grouping dominates the other three in everybody’s “toughest region” polls from Sunday night up until the first games on Thursday afternoon.

This year, there is no clear-cut overall No. 1 seed, and there are no “obviously superior” teams on the seeding lines below. Kansas or Villanova? Arizona or Duke? Everyone has an opinion on these questions, but there’s not going to be an overwhelming consensus on any of them. Because of that, expect the committee to get some pats on the back for “keeping the regions fair,” even though there was no possible way for them to make them lopsided.

he was waived to make room for Matt Barnes.

After the point guard was waived by the Lakers, the Warriors were quick to snatch him, but the team’s priorities changed when Kevin Durant went down with a knee injury. Less than two hours after signing Calderon, he was waived to make room for Matt Barnes.

Despite the extremely short stint, the Warriors honoured the entirety of Calderon’s $US415,000 contract, and made sure to waive him before the March 1 Playoff Eligibility Waiver Deadline, meaning he could sign with another contender.

Self-assuredly, University of Washington wide receiver John Ross stood in front of the media Friday at the Indiana Convention Center and matter-of-factly laid out his goal for Saturday’s running of the 40-yard dash.

When asked if he believed he could break Chris Johnson’s combine record of 4.24 set in 2008, Ross said, “I’m going to try. I am going to try. I don’t want to say too much. I’m going to try. I’m going to give it my best.”

He then added, “Under 4.3. That’s what I plan to run.”

Ross turned out to be a soothsayer when he blistered the 40 in 4.22 (the “official” time announced by the NFL), and then said afterward on NFL Network, “I feel like I could have run faster.”

Former NFL general manager Charley Casserly, now with NFL Network, said five of six watches in his area had Ross under 4.20, with the sixth at 4.25. SiriusXM host Gil Brandt timed Ross at 4.25, but said a scout near him registered a 4.21 time. Other scouts had the run at 4.16, 4.18 and 4.19.

The quarterbacks took center stage Saturday at the NFL Scouting Combine, and just like two months ago in the national title game, Clemson’s Deshaun Watson was the best player on the field.

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).
