    The debate over college football’s best team has been settled, the question answered by Clemson’s decisive victory over Alabama on Monday night.

  • Vince Carter gets standing ovation in potential final game in Toronto FWC: Vince Carter gets standing ovation in potential final game in Toronto

    Vince Carter was greeted by a standing ovation when checking in for the Atlanta Hawks during Tuesday’s game against the Toronto Raptors at Scotiabank Arena. The fact that Carter’s appearance could very well be the soon-to-be 42-year-old’s last game in Toronto was not lost on Raptors fans in attendance. Even better? Carter drained a three-pointer right after getting on the…

  • Dabo Swinney was an underdog for decades. That’s done now. FWC: Dabo Swinney was an underdog for decades. That’s done now.

    The former walk-on, real estate agent, and interim head coach is now simply one of football’s elites. Dabo Swinney’s Clemson pulling its second upset against Alabama and arguably the most shocking title game result of all time was far from the first time he’s exceeded expectations.

  • The End Is Nigh FWC: The End Is Nigh

    The good news: A supremely gifted superstar center who has missed every minute of what has already been a pretty fun NBA season is nearly ready to return to action.

  • It sure stinks to be a free agent second baseman in 2019 FWC: It sure stinks to be a free agent second baseman in 2019

    The offseason is slow for everyone, but don’t expect the second-base market to pick up at all. Jed Lowrie has been worth four or five wins over each of the last two seasons. It’s hard to put WAR into context sometimes, so maybe this will help: Only 28 players in baseball accomplished this feat, and you’ve heard of most of…

    Trevor Lawrence is already being talked about as a generational draft prospect, but NFL teams will have to wait. Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence is 6’6, 215 pounds with mobility and a ridiculous arm, capable of every throw a coach could dream of asking a player to make. On Monday, he became a national champion to boot with a 44-16 destruction…

    The gap between the Kings and the San Jose Sharks in the standings grew to 18 points Monday night. It didn’t appear to be that big of a disparity for much of the night.
