UCLA mess

UCLA fired Steve Alford on Monday, Dec. 31, 2018. Ninety-seven days later, they still don’t have a head coach. Last week, it appeared Jamie Dixon would end a long process that saw a pitiful offer to John Calipari and whiffs on several other big names. Nope, Dixon is out. Ben Bolch of the Los Angleles Times is your must-follow as this mess rolls on.

Tyler Summitt

Three years after Summitt resigned as Louisiana Tech head coach for "engaging in a relationship," he’s back on the sideline.


Predictions, matchups and more for WrestleMania 35. Triple H talked about the WWE’s future ahead of WrestleMania weekend, and ranking the 10 best WrestleMania matches of all time.

Will Wade

Several Will Wade updates this weekend: First, ICYMI, SI's Ross Dellenger reported LSU and Wade are working to end their standoff in investigation. Second, the FBI is visiting Baton Rouge to investigate Wade’s alleged recruiting violations (i.e. "strong-ass offer"). And third, federal prosecutors don’t want the defense to call college coaches like Wade and Sean Miller.

I can’t stop watching this

Long Shot

Thoughts on Long Shot, the movie with Charlize Theron and Seth Rogen set to hit theaters in early May? There’s a new trailer, and I think it’s worth a little attention:
