San Antonio could be claimed by Jones and the Dallas Cowboys.

Jones would lose too much money if San Antonio were to receive a team. (San Antonio News-Express) Comment

Kiffin confused by AD's comments

Former Tennessee Coach Lane Kiffin is confused by Vols athletic director Mike Hamilton's parting commments about him not being a "cultural fit" during his 14-month stay on campus. "I don't think at the end of day that has anything to do with whether you score points or whether you win games. Where you're from? I don't know. That's just my opinion. Is Nick Saban from Alabama? Is Urban Meyer from Florida? Those are two of the best coaches in the country. So I don't think that really means anything." (Knoxville News-Sentinel) Comment

Asked if he thought there was a deal to be made between the Yankees and Damon, Rodriguez said, "Don't be stirring it up on the first day. I really don't have anything to say."
