College Football Playoff rankings winners and losers headlined by Alabama, Clemson

    The top three in the College Football Playoff rankings are set in stone and not likely to budge any time soon — until Ohio State and Michigan meet later this month, at least.

    Georgia is the most rock-solid No. 1 since, well, the Bulldogs of last season. After topping Tennessee, the defending national champions are in position to coast all the way into the national semifinals as the top overall seed.

    Who the Bulldogs would face remains very much for debate.

    In the second playoff rankings, No. 4 went to TCU, the last of the four Bowl Subdivision unbeatens. The Horned Frogs inched ahead of Tennessee, which lost a crucial SEC East matchup against Georgia but remains right on the cusp of the top four.

     

    The second playoff rankings were also notable for two notable absences near the top: No. 9 Alabama and No. 10 Clemson were both ranked outside the top six for the first time in the history of the postseason format.

  • Catching COVID before a marathon or triathlon: Can you recover in time? – USA TODAY

    DeLeslyn Sullivan slogged along the spinning belt of her NordicTrack treadmill, slowly pulling one foot in front of the other.

    She could do this. She was a triathlete. An Ironman finisher. A 46-year-old, tough Georgia woman who had spent more than a decade running, swimming and cycling just because she loved it.  

    She wasn’t fast, but she was strong. Well, she had been strong. 

    Seven days earlier she’d been curled up on her couch, fighting off COVID-19. Now she wanted to show her coach, Lesley Paterson, that she was ready to hit the workouts. Certainly she could walk on the treadmill in her home office. 

    I feel better now. I can do this. I’ll just see how long I can go.

    Then her body showed her what COVID had done. 

    Almost immediately, DeLeslyn was exhausted. She stopped for breaks, climbed back on the treadmill, stopped again, plodded along and refused to quit.

    One foot. In front of. The other.

    Two hours and two minutes passed. And when she stopped, she saw how far she had gone: 1.52 miles.

Coach most likely to win his first natio

Category: 

Sporting News unleashed its this week, an exercise that generates hot arguments every single time.The top seven generated the most discu sion. Nick Saban and Dabo Swinney were the obvious choices at Nos. 1-2, and Texas A&M’s Jimbo Fisher was a controversial pick at No. 5. Those three coaches have won national championships.The other four have not. So, that is the question SN would like to explore next. Oklahoma’s Lincoln Riley, Notre Dame’s Brian Kelly, Ohio State’s Ryan Day and Georgia’s Kirby Smart have had similar levels of succe s.Which head coach will win a national championship first? Which one breaks joins that national championshipfraternity that includes Saban, Swinney, Fisher, LSU’s Ed Orgeron and North Carolina’s Mack Brown?That would settle a lot of arguments. We took to Twitter to ask the same question.Which coach best bet to win a FBS national championship first? Bill Bender (@BillBender92) Don’t argue. Just answer the question.SN looks at those four Tuf Borland Jersey coaches and makes it pick:MORE: | Kirby Smart, GeorgiaSmart received the most votes in the Twitter poll. He’s No. 7 in our rankings, but he’s also the coach who has been closest to a national championship. Georgia is 52-14 the last five seasons and has recruited at an elite level. He’s also 4-0 head to head against the other three coaches on this list. So, what’s the problem? Alabama is. Smart Anthony Barr Jersey is 0-3 against Nick Saban, and Florida has become a more viable threat with Dan Mullen. With each mi s, the comparisons to Mark Richt and the weight of a national championship that dates back to 1980 increase. Still, Smart is gonna break through one of these seasons, right?Ryan Day, Ohio StateDay received the second-most votes.

Defense, Special Teams lead the charge for the Knights in ugly 27-10 win over the YellowJackets

Category: 

On a day where UCF quarterback John Rhys Plumlee completed only eight passes, the Knights’ defense and special teams play that included four made field goals was good enough to earn a 27-10 win over Georgia Tech Saturday. 

A week after having a career high 339 yards through the air in the Knights’ big rebound win over the FAU Owls, The Senior UCF QB struggled to get any offense going through the air, failing to complete a single pass in the first quarter. Plumlee finished the game going only 8 of 16 through the air for 49 yards that included an interception and a couple sacks. 

One of the lone highlights for the dual threat QB was a key 28-yard run for a touchdown nearly in the fourth quarter to help the Knights jump out to a two-score lead and effectively seal the deal for win of ACC rival Georgia Tech. With the win, UCF improves to (3-1) on the season and it marks the first time the Knights have multiple wins over the same power 5 opponent. 

Plumlee said while he plans on improving going forward in the season, he was happy to get the win no matter the circumstance. 

“A win is a win, no matter what it looks like,” said Plumlee. “I played bad out there. I think I’ve got to be better, and I will be better. What stood out today was our defense and special teams.” 

While UCF’s offense was struggling to get going, the Knights defense and special teams came up big when they needed it which included four sacks, 2 fumble recoveries and a much-needed blocked punt at the end of the first half and return for a touchdown to give the team the lead and momentum they needed going into the rest of the game.

Scouting the Globe 2022: The Five Best Prospects From Georgia

Category: 

We’re scouting the globe once again to check out some of the top MMA prospects across the planet. This time out, we take a look at Georgia, which has become a hotbed of mixed martial arts talent in recent years.
Our original Scouting the Globe series singled out the following five prospects from Georgia:

  • Ilia Topuria is ranked #15 at bantamweight in the UFC.
  • Guram Kutateladze who is 1-1 in the UFC.
  • Zviad Lazishvili who was recently released by the UFC.
  • Levan Chokheli is signed with Bellator and is 1-2 for them.
  • Amiran Gogoladze who fights on the Contender Series this season.

Here’s who we’ve singled out in 2022.

Welterweight, Amiran Gogoladze (14-2)

Gogoladze is a highlight-reel finisher both on the feet and on the mat. He is extremely slick on the mat, especially off his back. He’s a sharp submission hunter and that shows with three submission victories by three different submissions.
Gogladze will utilize a lot of feints on the feet which set up the eventual finish. He throws a dangerous head kick and is just very tricky and explosive. He has flaws with his takedown defense but isn’t a guy you want to be caught slipping by.
Gogoladze is just 24 so if his defense tightens up he’s going to be a nightmare at 170.
