Virginia Tech football has best signing day since 2013, even with a few misses

Coach Justin Fuente started his second year at Virginia Tech as solidly as he finished his first. Armed with a 10-4 record in his inaugural season along with an ACC Coastal Division title and win at the Belk Bowl in December, Fuente capped his first full recruiting cycle Wednesday by debuting the Hokies’ highest-ranked National Signing Day class since 2013.

No matter what NCAA says, Jim Boeheim now has 1,000 wins and everybody knows it

The NCAA can officially take away 101 of Jim Boeheim's wins, but it can't take away his reality. His reality -- the actual facts in the tangible universe you and I live in -- is that, 1,000 times since Nov. 26, 1976, Syracuse basketball has finished a game as the victor. In every one of those games, Boeheim was on the sideline, employed as SU's coach. (CBS Sports)

Art Briles, Baylor assistants kept players' misbehavior under wraps, legal documents reveal

Former Baylor coach Art Briles and his assistant coaches actively intervened in the discipline of football players, worked to keep their cases under wraps and tried to arrange legal representation for their players, according to a series of emails and text messages released by three university regents in a legal filing Thursday.

Notre Dame's Mike Brey sought schedule tweak

Notre Dame coach Mike Brey was bummed that Tuesday’s scheduled game against Wake Forest couldn’t be moved to Wednesday after the Irish were forced to adjust their weekend schedule because of the water crisis in Chapel Hill. “Quite frankly, I’m disappointed that the game Tuesday wasn’t moved to Wednesday. But I signed up for the ACC, so I’m a good soldier.” (Burlington Times News)

No. 3 Kansas lifts suspension of forward Carlton Bragg

Kansas has lifted the indefinite suspension of sophomore Carlton Bragg Jr., who has missed the past three games after he was charged with misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. Bragg was expected to play for the No. 3 Jayhawks against Kansas State on Monday night. (Associated Press)

Sports official: HB2 could shut NC out of NCAA events for six years

North Carolina could lose dozens of NCAA championship events over the next six years if legislation limiting protections for the LGBT community isn't repealed. "The NCAA’s bid review and evaluation process began in January. Our contacts at the NCAA tell us that, due to their stance on HB2, all North Carolina bids will be pulled from the review process and removed from consideration." (WRAL.com)

Tom Brady's Jersey Stolen After Super Bowl LI

One of the most coveted items from Super Bowl LI would be Tom Brady's jersey, and everyone knew it. The Patriots star put his jersey in his locker after that spectacular comeback against the Falcons and next thing he knew it was gone. The jersey that Brady wore while leading his team to another championship, and catapulting himself into a stratosphere of the all-time greats, is missing. (Athlon Sports)

Deng Adel, Mangok Mathiang suspended for Virginia game

Louisville's Deng Adel and Mangok Mathiang have been suspended for Monday’s game at Virginia after breaking curfew on Saturday night. Louisville is down to seven scholarship players for Monday’s game, as point guards Quentin Snider and Tony Hicks are both out of the lineup. Adel is Louisville’s third-leading scorer, while Mathiang has averaged 13 points over the last five games. (NBC Sports)

Simply The Greatest: One play at a time, Brady's Patriots erased a deficit and made history

It takes two to dance like this: one going forward, the other backward. The New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons stood face to face here Sunday night, hands clasped, and skipped to a Super Bowl finish unlike any we’ve ever seen. It was the NFL’s greatest comeback and its biggest collapse, a product of so much done right and so many things gone wrong. (Sports Illustrated)

Remembering Prince’s incredible 2007 Super Bowl halftime show

This was on Feb. 4, 2007 at Dolphin Stadium — that’s right, the 10th anniversary is the day before this year’s Super Bowl; way to feel old. The game was between the Colts and my beloved (yet terribly flawed) Chicago Bears. And in the middle of all that, Prince’s love symbol lit up in the middle of a wet field. I was not a happy Bears fan that night, but I’ll be damned if I wasn’t enjoying myself during the Prince show. (SB Nation)

Video: Patriots WR Malcolm Mitchell, the bookish football star

When Steve Hartman first met Malcolm Mitchell three years ago, the wide receiver - then playing for the University of Georgia - had been invited to join a book club. He was the only man in the club, and by far the youngest. But he was proud to be called a nerd. Today, Mitchell is playing for the New England Patriots, and he's taken his love of reading to a new level: writing a children's book, "The Magician's Hat." (CBS News)

Putin, Trump and Patriotic Anger at Super Bowl 51

On Monday night, as the Patriots’ Super Bowl media day session came to a close, I found team president Jonathan Kraft, the son of the owner, and asked him to tell the Vladimir Putin story again. Since Robert Kraft, Bill Belichick, and Tom Brady are all friends with Donald Trump, and since the President has been linked to Putin, I figured now would be a good time to re-hear it. (Sports Illustrated)

Coach K takes shot at Trump's Twitter usage

When asked after the Duke vs. Pittsburgh game about whether his team improved during his month hiatus, Coach K went on a bit of a tangent answering it, while responding to the team's temporary ban from the locker room and from wearing Duke gear. He also took what appeared to be a subtle shot at President Donald Trump and his infamous Twitter usage. (CBS Sports)

SEC blows past other Power 5 conferences in 2016 revenue

The SEC dominated in its total revenue during the 2016 fiscal year, which led to some schools receiving around $40 million from the conference, USA Today reported. The SEC, which is the first conference to file its tax returns for 2016, gave the most money to Georgia ($41.8 million) and the least to Alabama and Ole Miss ($39.1 million.) (Sporting News)
