Redskins fire GM Scot McCloughan after ‘disaster for 18 months’

Ending a week of speculation and uncertainty, the Redskins fired general manager Scot McCloughan on Thursday.

McCloughan was entering his third offseason at the helm of the franchise, which hired him in January 2015. Thursday marked the beginning of the NFL’s new year and thus the opening of free agency. McCloughan didn’t attend last week’s scouting combine and was away from Redskins Park this week, the Post reported, with team president Bruce Allen orchestrating all personnel decisions in the meantime.

The Redskins maintained McCloughan had been away from his office dealing with a family matter.

Epstein, who helped end the Boston Red Sox’s 86-year World Series title drought as their general manager in 2004, saw his Cubs end their 108-year drought this past season. But he doesn’t necessarily agree with the honor.

Elite Mens Rocky Bleier Jersey In a text to ESPN’s Buster Olney, Epstein said, Um, I can’t even get my dog to stop peeing in the house. That is ridiculous. The whole thing is patently ridiculous. It’s baseball — a pastime involving a lot of chance. If [Ben] Zobrist’s ball is three inches farther off the line, I’m on the hot seat for a failed five-year plan. And I’m not even the best leader in our organization; our players are.

Authentic Youth Laken Tomlinson Jersey Wrote Sports Illustrated’s Tom Verducci for Fortune: This time there was no proprietary formula, no algorithm, for self-motivated, high-character players and creating an environment to allow them to flourish. [Epstein and his assistants] never stopped searching to find edges, but they made a fundamental decision early after coming to Chicago that the one edge they could exploit was found in a very old-school resource: people.

Epstein will be rewarded for his leadership. His first deal paid him an average of $3.7 million a year. His current deal, which he agreed to in September, will see him making nearly $10 million a year.

Epstein wasn’t the only sports figure on the list — LeBron James was ranked 11th.

Deng Adel was pegged as a potential breakout player in his sophomore year before this season began.

Louisville currently holds the No. 8 incoming recruiting class, according to 247Sports. Along with the No. 68 player in the class, point guard Darius Perry, the Cardinals will also add five-star center Malik Williams. The No. 3 big man in the class stands at 7’0 and will look to add to an already good defensive team and stretch the floor.

Williams also held offers from Michigan State, Indiana, Maryland, UCLA, Xavier, and Butler. He was a coveted add who should find immediate minutes.

He’ll join 7-footer Anas Mahmoud, who will return as a senior. He averaged six points, four rebounds, and two blocks per game.

Deng Adel was pegged as a potential breakout player in his sophomore year before this season began. Adel had barely played as a freshman, but he impressed scouts at Adidas Nations during the summer.

For the most part, Adel lived up to the hype. He averaged 12.1 points per game, hit 34 percent of his threes, and proved to be a willing passer and rebounder as well. Still, it feels like he is capable of taking another step up. If he does it in his junior year, Louisville could find itself with a star.

Bill O’Brien got rid of the expensive headache known as Brock Osweiler and is free to handpick a more malleable passer with strengths and an offensive mentality to his liking. Trubisky is much more than a big pocket passer, and O’Brien would love tailoring his unique blend of short accuracy and athleticism into a more effective, efficient package that Osweiler had no chance of becoming.

The game will be played in California, but Cincinnati is an Eastern Time team, so the body clocks of the players will be a bit off even if the tip off is 6:45 local time. And when they head back east it¡¯s really going to nail them.

These are all best-case scenario estimates, but say the game will likely end right around midnight Eastern Time. After all the media obligations and transit to the airport an optimistic estimate would have the Bearcats on their plane at 1 a.m. to travel home from Sacramento for a flight that¡¯s around four hours. Wheels down in Cincy at 5 a.m., likely not back to their dorms or apartments until 5:30 a.m. on Monday morning.

Michigan still has a ways to travel to win a national title. The Wolverines will only play excellent teams the rest of the way. But they¡¯ve got that look.

Beilein and Pitino are both among the best coaches of this era, but Pitino had gotten the best of Beilein in a couple of key tournament spots before.

In 2005, Beilein was coaching at West Virginia. He led WVU on a wonderful Cinderella run to the Elite Eight. The Mountaineers hadn¡¯t even been in the tournament in seven years, but their March was awesome. As a No 7 seed, they won by two against Creighton in the first round and by six against No. 2 Wake Forest in the second. They beat Bob Knight¡¯s Texas Tech in the Sweet 16 and were a tourney darling by the Elite Eight.

Then WVU played Louisville, and the magic looked like it would continue. The Mountaineers had a 13-point lead at halftime, but a Larry O¡¯Bannon and Taquan Dean-led Louisville came back to force overtime, where it outscored the ¡®Eers by eight.

Adam Foote Jersey We all remember 2013¡¯s game. Michigan star Trey Burke sat for much of the first half with two fouls, while reserve Spike Albrecht ripped off 17 early points in his absence.

David Baas injury: Giants C placed on injured reserve, out for the season

David Baas has been placed on injured reserve by the New York Giants and will miss the rest of the 2013 NFL season, the team announced Wednesday. Baas injured his MCL on the last play of the Giants’ opening drive during Monday night’s win over the Minnesota Vikings.

Dick Butkus Authentic Jersey Baas had just rejoined the Giants after missing three games due to a neck injury. During preseason, he injured the same knee and sat out through the Giants’ season opener before returning to the field briefly. Baas has never had a reputation for being injury prone in the NFL. He has played 16 games in five of his nine seasons in the NFL, and has never appeared in less than 11 games during the regular season:

There’s only one problem: Alford already has one of the sport’s biggest jobs. Right now, he’s guiding a loaded UCLA team into March Madness, and it’s built for a deep run.

Would Alford really leave the Bruins for Bloomington? He didn’t exactly say no when he was pressed on Thursday:

That’s the basketball equivalent of a filibuster. Alford answered the question without really answering it at all.

Of course, it makes sense. What’s he supposed to say? “Yes, I’d love to coach Indiana,” doesn’t really play when you have Lonzo Ball, and your current team is equipped to win the national championship.

It’s just something worth monitoring because Alford’s words sound similar to what he said when he took the UCLA job from New Mexico. The Alford-to-Indiana speculation will likely only ramp up if he leads UCLA on a run through the tournament.

Our Indiana community, Crimson Quarry, is already on the record: It doesn’t want Alford to coach the Hoosiers. This is going to be the most debated job opening of the spring. Get ready for a lot more nondenials and vague responses over the next month.

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.
