“Football is the most popular sport in the world,” reads the opening line in an article forwarded to me by Medscape last month.
JERSEY CITY, N.J. | Broncos third-year tight end Julius Thomas began the season with more NCAA tournament trips (two) on his resume than catches in the NFL (one).
CORVALLIS, Ore. | Kayla McBride scored 20 points, Natalie Achonwa added 16 points and eight rebounds, and No. 2 Notre Dame remained perfect with a 70-58 victory over Oregon State on Sunday.
NEW YORK | This nicely sums up Tommy Rees' Notre Dame career.
SAN DIEGO | Jordan Lynch will make a run at history Thursday night when he suits up for the final time for No. 24 Northern Illinois in the Poinsettia Bowl against Utah State.
SOUTH BEND | Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly says quarterback Everett Golson will return to school after serving a semester-long suspension for academic impropriety.
Heisman Trophy finalists, from left, Northern Illinois quarterback Jordan Lynch, at Mount Carmel graduate, Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, Auburn running back Tre Mason, Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron, Boston College running back Andre Williams and Florida State quarterback Jameis…

Safety is in the pocket.
Butkus. Nitschke. Lambert. Singletary.
INDIANAPOLIS | Ezekiel "Ziggy" Ansah knew nothing about the NFL when he was growing up. Now, he could be a first-round pick in April's draft.
ORLANDO, Fla. | Aaron Murray wanted nothing more this week than to send Georgia's senior class out with a game to remember.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. | The stuffed monkey spent the last year in storage, out of sight but still in everyone's mind.
Who shall it be now?
MEMPHIS, Tenn. | Iowa State and Tulsa don't necessarily think of the Liberty Bowl as a rematch, even though they faced each other Sept. 1 in the season opener for both teams.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. | Duke wide receiver Conner Vernon sees Thursday night's Belk Bowl against Cincinnati as a perfect opportunity to help the Blue Devils' football team emerge from basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski's shadow.
WASHINGTON | Maybe they should call it the Transition Bowl.
SOUTH BEND | If Manti Te'o's career at Notre Dame has seemed like something straight out of a Hollywood script, perhaps it is fitting the linebacker is cast as a underdog in the final two scenes of his collegiate career.
It's the time of year when the men are separated from the boys in the NFL.
CHAMPAIGN | Ralph Bolden and his Purdue teammates have been through a lot, but they're one win from bowl eligibility following a 20-17 victory at Illinois Saturday.
