Colorado is in the midst of its best season in years, earning its way to bowl eligibility today with a 10-5 win over the once-seventh-ranked Stanford Cardinal. But even with its inexplicable 6-2 record, the Buffaloes still showed some of that haplessness that was a hallmark of the program for a decade—as, while attempting to take an intentional safety at the end of today’s game, they also committed holding in the end zone—which is an unintentional safety.

Brian Jones failed out of the NFL due to injury—he even filed, and lost, a lawsuit over it—but don’t tell him that the sport of football needs rules to protect players’ long-term health. The CBS college football analyst alternately demanded players grow eyes in the back of their head or barked “KEEP YOUR HEAD ON A SWIVEL!” while complaining about Donovan Wilson being ejected from today’s game for the Texas A & M Aggies.

ESPN’s weekly native advertising broadcast known as College GameDay set its temporary roots in Tuscaloosa today for the big aTm-Bama game. People brought signs, yes, and they also had signs in Lexington where SEC Nation was broadcasting its superior program.

Draymond “The Human Vasectomy” Green, whose reputation is rooted in his kicking ability as much as it is his actual basketball skills, is back at the martial arts-ing, even in preseason. Here he is last night against the Blazers, leveling his big foot toward Allen Crabbe:

The Sacramento Kings, a failed state of an NBA team run by a clueless owner, will be bad this year, despite internal expectations that they’ll make the playoffs. One of the reasons why they could actually improve this season is because their new coach Dave Joerger seems to have a clue, unlike George Karl, who helmed the team to a listless 33-win season, feuded with DeMarcus Cousins, and seemed generally uninterested in coaching.

Roger Goodell is not having a great week. He’s off in the U.K. promoting the NFL’s sub-par football product by way of a team whose kicker was revealed this week to have written “I abused my wife” in journal entries from 2013.

What I do at the middle school is generously called cross country coaching. To the untrained eye, our program looks a lot like goofing around, like BS, like a waste of time. I’m pretty lucky to be able to pull this off.

British journalist: “Pep, do you think your failure to beat the best team in the world a couple months into you tenure at a brand new club means you might consider throwing away the tactical philosophy that has made you arguably the greatest, most successful coach of your generation?”

It’s almost winter, and that means it’s almost time for our ursine friends to begin hibernating. But before packing it in for a few months, each bear needs to achieve a status of total comfort and total fatness.

As far as outright winners go, lobs might be the least exhilarating way to terminate a point of tennis. You plop the tennis ball high into the air, way out of your opponent’s reach, and then it falls way back down into the court, hooray. You can respect the lob on a technical level—an especially deft placement, or an abnormal amount of topspin to drag it back in the court—but it’s hard to really get riled up to see Andy Murray dink a ball over someone’s head, even though he’s probably the greatest to ever do it.

Once again, the NFL has insisted that its inability to comprehend the repeated abuse suffered by a woman—Molly Brown, in this case, the ex-wife of New York Giants kicker Josh Brown—wasn’t due to its own incompetence. After blaming the victim a few months ago, NFL leaders decided this time around to blame records custodians, saying everything was the fault of an uncooperative King County Sheriff’s Office. The sheriff himself pushed back, saying the problem was the NFL investigator was a “goofus” and a “yokel” who didn’t even identify himself as being with the NFL.

The ancient Indian sport of kabaddi is undergoing a revolution. For centuries it was only played on dusty fields in backcountry villages, but the launch of the Pro Kabaddi League in 2014 has transformed it from an antiquated pastime into a modern sporting spectacle on the Asian subcontinent, played in state-of-the-art stadiums and watched by hundreds of millions. The sport is growing so rapidly that the Kabaddi World Cup, which has been taking place this month in Ahmedabad, India, even features a team representing the United States.

The NFL is suddenly very concerned about Giants kicker Josh Brown, now that the sheriff’s office in King County, Wash. has released documents in which Brown described in his own words how he abused his wife, Molly. The league was less concerned a month ago, when it suspended Brown one game despite the fact that all the relevant details that were contained in the most recently released documents were already publicly available and being reported on. The NFL didn’t learn anything yesterday it shouldn’t have already known about Brown, but that hasn’t stopped the league from following a familiar, panicky course of action.
