Monday, March 20, 2017

Photo credit: Sean Gardner/Getty Images It isn’t often that racing spats over wrecks get super technical. It’s usually just a finger-pointing match over who hit whom and why. But after a wreck with Joey Logano in Las Vegas, Kyle Busch apparently asked to see his throttle data to determine if Logano hit him on purpose—after trying to punch him, of course.

Monday, March 20, 2017

CLEVELAND, Ohio — Joey Logano is on the pole for NASCAR’s Camping World Cup 500 today in Phoenix.

LOOK: This photo of Adam Jones’ catch in the World Baseball Classic is amazing – CBSSports.com

Monday, March 20, 2017

Hereby: This is the catch that saved America …  That’s Adam Jones, free-born American baseball player, making a wonder-snare in the seventh inning of Team USA’s eventual 6-3 win over the Dominican Republic on Saturday night. Shortly after Jones’ catch, Robinson Cano would homer thus cutting the U.S. lead to a single run. As such, Jones’ catch stands as one that was absolutely critical at the time. You’ll also note…

For Northwestern sports, the ‘after’ sure beats the ‘before’ – Chicago Tribune

Monday, March 20, 2017

For decades Northwestern alumni took pride in things like high SAT entry scores, “Saturday Night Live” cast members, two campus beaches, Otto Graham and their “Purple Mafia” media contingent. Then came the 1995 Rose Bowl season. Gary Barnett took the Purple to Pasadena. Northwestern football would no longer be known for losing Ara Parseghian to Notre Dame or a 34-game losing streak that ended with a “laking” of the goal…

Las Vegas Motor Speedway considers eliminating seats for NASCAR races – Las Vegas Review-Journal

Monday, March 20, 2017

The bloody gash on Kyle Busch’s forehead wasn’t the only cut at Las Vegas Motor Speedway last week. The track appears poised to ax more seats that were largely empty at the Kobalt 400, and TV ratings for the March 12 NASCAR race were down 17 percent. What, if anything, does it mean for the viability of a second NASCAR race in Las Vegas? The Kobalt 400 produced a late…

Arkansas baseball sits atop SEC after sweeping Mississippi State – SECcountry.com

Monday, March 20, 2017

Don’t look now, but the Arkansas baseball team sits at the very top of the SEC standings. Sure, it’s just one series into league play, but the Diamond Hogs sweep of Mississippi State this weekend, culminating with a 6-1 win on Sunday, is such a far cry from where things were most of last season, you’d have to pardon anyone around the program for getting excited. It is, after all,…
