“It’s positive to draw this kind of interest to the game and make it a story because it’s good for baseball.” That’s the Braves GM on Tim Tebow. Hmmm. [MLB.com]

Nice piece on Chris Borland, though I read it all wondering if a year later, the NFL cares. The guess is no. [Bleacher Report]

Important story on Bjorn Nittmo, the guy who tried to be an NFL kicker, ended up on David Letterman, and now is going through some real life struggles. [Buffalo News]

When you see more and more video on blogs and websites, don’t complain. This is why it’s happening. [NYT]

Anyone saying the SEC is down because of a few losses opening weekend needs their head examined.

Gave out Western Michigan +5 and this happened with three minutes left in a 1-point game and my mind nearly exploded. The Broncos held on for the cover.

It’s Myles Garrett, who is probably a Top 5 pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. He’s they bull rushing through the lineman.
