The Knicks! New York’s favorite team had exit meetings on Friday.

Lynn Swann is the athletic director at USC. His women’s basketball coaching search is … not going well.

Bill Simmons takes us on a real trip explaining his Wholesale NFL Jerseys Free Shipping MVP vote for James Harden. Some of those older MVP races are fascinating to read about.

Arizona holds off Jacksonville, 27-14

The Jaguars got off to a rousing start in the game. On their opening possession, they went for it on fourth down and ended up getting a 62-yard touchdown pass from Danny Noble.

Smith threw three interceptions and fumbled the ball once, posting a passer rating of 10.1. The turnovers were bad enough, but he showed an inability to throw against a flawed Buffalo secondary, completing 35 percent of his passes.

NFL referees have been part-time workers for a long time, but that could change starting in the 2017 season. The current CBA allows referees to be full-time workers, but the big sticking point is that they’d have to leave the NFL Referees Association and become employees of the league office. There’s also the issue of pay cuts and loss of benefits that referees receive in their union.

Under the current proposal, referees will be “gradually phased in” to a program, but what that entails exactly is something of a mystery. Regardless, full-time officials are on the table this year after being discussed on and off in the recent past.

The Tennessee Titans have officially placed quarterback Jake Locker on injured reserve, ending his season. The team has not yet made a move to take his empty roster spot.

But I live in Louisville, a smaller city 90 minutes south that sits in the same general forgotten chunk of flyover country. I love Louisville dearly, but whenever I travel to a metropolis, I get jokes. It happened again when I visited New York last week: “Louisville? Why the Hell would you ever live in Louisville?”

I want to check the geo-social elitism, and I want to effectively argue that Louisville is a special place, but when I’m in New York or Montreal or D.C., I just can’t. They’ve got all the things. Louisville has, like, four things. And man, when I knock Indianapolis for only having one and a half things, I feel like a toddler throwing alphabet blocks at the family cat. In those times, I feel a pathetic sort of solidarity with Indianapolis — a city that, like Louisville, sits on the side of America’s abdomen in a region too Really Cheap Jerseys nebulous to be part of the Midwest or South or anywhere at all.
