Raymond Felton projects as the third point guard on the Los Angeles Clippers' roster, behind Chris Paul and Austin Rivers, filling the role Pablo Prigioni played in the second half of the season for the Clippers last year. He’s a significant upgrade over Prigioni on both sides of the ball, and should be in line to play more minutes than Pablo got last year.

Bug Howard describes game-winning catch, final moments
UNC wide receiver Bug Howard will go down in North Carolina football lore as making one of the biggest and more miraculous catches even in Kenan Stadium.

UNC's Identity Coming into Focus
Stats rarely lie, although emotion lacks a numerical value that can be factored into an equation.

Three of Pitt’s final four drives were three-and-outs.

So we grabbed bathrobes and warmed up for five minutes.” Switzer proceeded to figuratively undress the Pittsburgh secondary all day.

Ryan Switzer, Bug Howard and Mack Hollins all donned bathrobes as they went through warm-up drills -- until they got a little too warmed up.
