Blake Griffin is a heavy favorite to win the dunk contest tonight. Jon Abrams of the NY Times tweeted that Griffin is planning on leaping over a car. (That has been done before, but not in the dunk contest.) Last night, Griffin had probably the best dunk in the freshman-rookies game, though it mostly had to do with John Wall’s bounce pass.

Has actual football started yet?
Not an auspicious start for City.
Spoiler: the Big Ten looks like it will be the odd big five conference left out.
Come for the sports and media chatter; stay for the gambling.
The public attention finally shifted to Hardy, and the Panthers have changed their position.
Kind of an about-face for the brand.
