The Colts were a nice little story six weeks ago.
Here are a few things you won't find among the many items Bob Knight is putting on the auction block over the next two months in New York:
Sometimes you put a foot down wrong and don't find out for a week or two that you actually dislocated a hip. That's how it's going to be if the NFL sticks with its plan to start the regular season with replacement referees — from mild annoyance to major pain to humongous regret. And all beca…
LONDON | A minute of silence carved out of a three-hour opening ceremony is not too much to ask. It works out to little more than five seconds for each victim. Besides, the widows and families of the Israeli athletes murdered by Palestinian gunmen at the 1972 Munich Games have been waiting f…
SAN FRANCISCO | The real star of this U.S. Open won't swing a golf club even once this week. Most fans couldn't pick him out of a lineup. No matter how aggravating The Olympic Club plays, he barely has enough hair left to pull any out.
JIM LITKE COLUMN: Players call NCAA's bluff, demanding share of growing riches be spent on education
The number of people who buy the NCAA's argument that amateurism is the backbone of college sports is dwindling by the day.
As a general rule, sports team owners should leave the fashion tips to Tim Gunn.
Asked where he ranked among NBA greats, Moses Malone didn't have to think long.
Bud Selig prides himself on being a student of history. In two judgments last week, though, baseball's long-serving steward reminded us he can be a fan of selective memory, too, so long as it suits his purpose.
Bruce Pearl is hardly the first coach to cheat and-or lie to NCAA investigators, just one of the very few whose transgressions already cost him a job and could wind up costing him a career.
CHICAGO | For those who say 101 years is plenty of time to get over an inferiority complex, meet the fans of the 2009 Cubs.
CHICAGO | The last time they met on baseball's grandest stage, it was preceded by earthquakes registering at least 7.8 on the Richter scale in San Francisco, Ecuador and Chile. There were major riots in Atlanta, Paris and Stockholm. Mount Vesuvius erupted and a 200-foot wide stream of lava f…
GLENDALE, Ariz. | Move over, Peyton. Make room in the Manning family trophy case, Archie.
COLLEGE BASKETBALL COMMENTARY
TULSA, Okla. | The man never runs out of surprises.
CARNOUSTIE, Scotland | Golf doesn't have a drug problem.
Hucksters make their living ahead of the curve, or at the very least, by selling that illusion.
Four days later, people are still debating where LeBron James' 25 straight points to end Game 5 ranks on the NBA's list of all-time best finishes. The only point worth adding is this: Whoever has James' ear between now and Thursday can serve the King best by reminding him that better be just…
After decades of study, scientists revealed nearly three weeks ago that a disease may help explain the long-running feud between the Hatfields and McCoys. Had those same researchers asked, Red Sox fans could have suggested something much simpler.
ATLANTA | Most kids think the world began when they started watching TV.
Talented teams are a given with Bill Self.
Sammy Sosa didn't come out of hiding and amble into baseball for the money. He's got plenty.
CHICAGO | After almost 500 throws during the regular season, half that many in practice each and every week, and three dozen more against the Seahawks late Sunday afternoon Bears quarterback Rex Grossman finally let one fly that kept a city from tossing him into the lake.
Overspending isn't the point of the baseball meetings, it just seems that way.
COLLEGE FOOTBALL | COMMENTARY
NORTHBROOK, Ill. | The handoff couldn't have been much smoother.
MAMARONECK, N.Y. | Failure is never a welcome teacher, just a necessary one. And the lesson it taught Tiger Woods on a steamy Friday at the U.S. Open is going to take some time to learn.
Picking baseball's All-Performance-Enhancing team just got a whole lot easier. Because now, just about everybody who dropped in or out of the game in the last decade is in play.

Enough with the "shocked" already.
WASHINGTON | Love makes the world go 'round, but it still takes cash to make the turnstiles spin.
AUGUSTA, Ga. | Not enough hands.
ST. LOUIS | Anytime.
ST. LOUIS | Add college basketball coaches to the long line of guys who can't stand prosperity.
ROSEMONT | Bruce Pearl knows it's just as easy to scorn the accuser as the accused, a lesson he learned the hard way Thursday night.
There's no mistaking the new Bob Knight.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. | Tom Brady was far from flawless.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. | And now for the show within the show.
Keep in mind that coach Scott Skiles gets paid a lot to make sure the glass always looks half-full. Anybody else who says they saw the Chicago Bulls in the playoff hunt midway through this season is either lying or had better have a doctor's note explaining they've been in a coma.
