Mel Tucker no stranger to UM-MSU rivalry: 'This is not just another game'
After nearly a quarter-century of coaching, rivalries are hardly new to Mel Tucker.And the one he’s now fully immersed in — Michigan State and Michigan — is not foreign, either. Tucker’s first coaching gig was as a graduate assistant for the Spartans under Nick Saban back in 1997 and ‘98, and there was never any question as to how important that game was to the former MSU and current Alabama head coach.So, Tucker has a fairly good handle on what it means when Michigan State heads to Ann Arbor to take on Michigan at noon on Saturday.“Obviously, this game against the school down the road is not ...

Monday Morning Quarterback: Feel better about the Huskers’ progress after the OSU game?

Seahawks running back Chris Carson could miss game against 49ers with foot injury suffered vs. Cardinals
The results are in on an MRI on the foot of Seahawks running back Chris Carson.And while they didn’t reveal an injury that would endanger Carson’s season, they did show that Carson has a mid-foot sprain and almost certainly will miss at least Sunday’s game against the 49ers.A source confirmed to The Seattle Times the initial report of Carson’s prognosis from NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. The hope is Carson at most will miss one or two games, which would also hopefully mean he will not have to go on Injured Reserve, which would require being out for at least three games.Rapoport reported that Car...

Jeff McLane: Why can't fourth-quarter Carson Wentz play that way for an entire Eagles game?
PHILADELPHIA — Carson Wentz likes to play with his red hair seemingly on fire.He likes scrambling, making off-balance throws, taking hits, and — over the last dozen games or so, dating back to last season — doing so from behind.This season, the Eagles quarterback has performed better in the fourth quarter than in the first three quarters. Any viewer can discern the difference. But the numbers back it up, as well.In seven games, Wentz has an 85.3 passer rating in the final stanza — plus one overtime — and a 67.8 rating in quarters 1-3. In the last two games alone the dichotomy was even greater:...

CHICAGO — The Chicago Bears are headed back on the road for the fourth time this season, destined for California this weekend and readying for Monday night’s clash against the Los Angeles Rams at SoFi Stadium.But in contrast to the team’s “leave as late as possible” approach to previous trips to Detroit, Atlanta and Charlotte, N.C., the Bears will fly to Los Angeles on Saturday night and spend two nights in a hotel before the game.Coach Matt Nagy explained Friday afternoon that the goal in leaving earlier is to get players adjusted to the time difference — an understandable objective.
