SNL Takes On Super Bowl And Its Two, Uh, Flawed Fanbases

Tina Fey and Rachel Dratch returned to Saturday Night Live tonight for a sketch that saw Revolutionary War “patriots” from New England face off against the less-successful representatives from Philadelphia. It’s funny! Great job all around, everyone. (Deadspin)

Hot-shooting Campbell duo makes history with record-setting 3-point barrage

There are nights in which basketball players are shooting so well, it seems as though they just can’t miss. On January 23, Campbell — and the duo of Chris Clemons and Marcus Burk — had a night in which they almost didn’t. The hot-shooting duo made history by combining for 20 3-pointers and 74 of their team’s 94 points as the Camels shot 69.7 percent from beyond the arc. (North State Journal)

Remaining members of USA Gymnastics board of directors to resign amid Larry Nassar fallout

The remaining members of the USA Gymnastics board of directors will resign under pressure from the U.S. Olympic Committee after the USOC threatened to decertify the organization if it didn't take more strident steps toward change amid the fallout from the scandal surrounding former team doctor Larry Nassar.

This Eagles hype video is the best hype video I’ve ever seen, and it’s not close

This Eagles video has me ready to run through 12 glass doors. It traces Philadelphia’s season in literal reverse, with pivotal moments from their year rolled backward — a few touchdowns in the NFC Championship, a forced incompletion on fourth down against the Falcons to win the Divisional Round, quarterback Carson Wentz leaving the field with a torn ACL in December.

Belichick and Saban: The Stories Behind Football’s Most Powerful Friendship

This was in the late 1980s; they were both a couple years away from turning 40, and neither man’s name meant then what it does today. Nick Saban flew in from Houston, where he coached the Oilers’ defensive backs. Bill Belichick, then the Giants’ defensive coordinator, drove up from New Jersey with 16-millimeter film canisters and a projector stashed in his car. (Sports Illustrated)

Miami blocking QB Evan Shirreffs grad transfer request

Miami backup quarterback Evan Shirreffs has fulfilled his obligation by getting his Business Finance degree in three years. Not only that, Shirreffs killed it in the classroom with a 3.9 GPA. But as a graduate transfer, Shirreffs is leaving Miami with more than a degree. He is carrying a significant burden because he cannot go to the grad school of his choice. (CBS Sports)

DIII schools Fontbonne, Greenville combine for 318 points, breaking 24-year-old single-game record

It was the shootout at Long Gymnasium. On one side, the visiting Fontbonne Griffins, from a school that 50 years ago was all-female. On the other, the Greenville Panthers, the first college campus in the nation that went all wireless, in 1999. By the time the two St. Louis area schools were done, Fontbonne was a 164-154 winner in overtime, and the record book was in tatters. (NCAA.com)

See the moment USWNT's Julie Ertz found out her husband, Zach Ertz, is heading to the Super Bowl

The US Women’s National Soccer team had a friendly on Sunday, which meant that Julie Ertz couldn’t make it to the NFC Championship to cheer on her husband, Zach Ertz. So, when the final whistle blew (the US beat Denmark, 5-1), the midfielder found out that her husband was going to the Super Bowl. When shown the video of his wife getting emotional, Zach then got emotional: (USA Today)

Former Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer leaves football with only one regret

Carson Palmer’s new offensive line is a fleet of moving vans. They arrived at his house Thursday, ushering the former Cardinals star into retirement. It’s one of the best quarterback sneaks in history. “For the next year, my family and I are going to disappear into the mountains,” Palmer said. “We’re getting away from the iPads and the iPhones and going on a family adventure.

'The Two Bills': Brilliant, infuriating portrait of Parcells, Belichick

“The Two Bills,” a sublime, infuriating new “30 for 30” documentary, sits you down in a room with Bill Belichick and Bill Parcells for two hours of highlights and history. The awkward silences, the embarrassed chuckles, the emotions wrestled to the ground long before they can reach the surface … it’s uncomfortable, it’s cringeworthy, and it’s a brilliant technique. (Yahoo! Sports)

Duke's Krzyzewskiville shuts down due to flu concerns

Duke's famed Krzyzewskiville will be a ghost town for a while because of flu concerns. School officials said Thursday that students in the makeshift tent village outside Cameron Indoor Stadium have received an indefinite grace period to leave and return to their dorms. It's a tradition at Duke for students to camp out in tents to claim the best seats for the North Carolina game. (Associated Press)

In the ACC this season, the toughest place to play has become apparent

ACC teams are 22-43 on the road in conference play this season. In other words, for about every one road win, you also lose two. UNC’s loss to Clemson was the latest example. Some of this season’s more dramatic upsets – like Duke losing at Boston College and N.C. State, for example – have come when ACC teams travel, which speaks to the ACC's competitiveness. (Charlotte Observer)

Virginia Guard Nigel Johnson Suspended Three Games

Virginia Cavaliers guard Nigel Johnson has been suspended three games for violation of team rules, coach Tony Bennett announced Wednesday. Johnson will miss tonight’s game against Louisville and road contests at Syracuse and Florida State.

Thief steals Red Panda Acrobat's 7-foot unicycle, $2,000 reward offered

Someone took off with a 7-foot unicycle from the woman behind the legendary “Red Panda Acrobat” at San Francisco International Airport, and now her agent is offering a $2,000 reward. And since its disappearance on Jan, 24, Rong Niu, the solo unicyclist who juggles and balances plates on her head at NBA and college games and across the country, has not been the same. (KTVU.com)

Syracuse is running out of healthy players

Syracuse will be down to six scholarship players for the near — and potentially long-term — future. On Monday, guard Howard Washington suffered a leg injury expected to keep him for Wednesday’s game against Georgia Tech. That’s not good. And it’s made even worse by the fact that big man Matthew Moyer, who started the first 20 games, will be out a while. (NBC Sports)
