The great basketball drama produced by the urgency of a single-elimination tournament is why hardcore hoops fans watch the NCAA Tournament.

The upsets are why so many others tune in. And the challenge of filling out those brackets make it fun for all of us.

Here we are again. It’s the day after Christmas and we get to play with all of our toys. Except it’s nearly 100 days after Christmas and those toys are numbers.

More specifically, the point spread on every game for the first two rounds of the 2014 NCAA Tournament.

In the ever-changing world of today's college basketball, the race for the national championship is as wide open and fluid as ever. As the NCAA Tournament nears, however, these are the teams to watch.

The NFL is about to have an openly gay player in its ranks. Missouri defensive end Michael Sam—the 2014 Southern Eastern Conference Defensive Player of the Year—is projected to be selected in the later rounds of this May's NFL Draft.

Todd Graham has guided his Arizona State Sun Devils to the Pac-12 Championship Game, where they will face Stanford in a battle for a Rose Bowl berth.

Year after year many college athletes transfer from one school to another. Football and both men’s and women’s basketball see more transfers than others, but recently the number of transfers in men’s hoops specifically has sky-rocketed.

Going into the 2013-14 academic year, nearly 450 male athletes switched schools to play basketball.

It was one of those unforgettable Sweet Sixteen moments. The game-winning 3-pointer with two seconds left to lift the team to the Elite Eight.

The problem for Sean Miller’s Arizona Wildcats was it was not point guard Mark Lyons who tied it with a spectacular shot just 18 seconds earlier. It was Ohio State reserve LaQuinton Ross.

Does South Carolina's Jadeveon Clowney have a legitimate shot at the Heisman? Is there a team ready to challenge the SEC for the national title? Is Ohio State that team?

CLOWNEY VS.

The college football season is still months away, but it's never too early to start thinking about football, even the 2014 NFL Draft. South Carolina's JaDeveon Clowney is at the head of the class before the 2013 season even begins.

In 2012, the leading rusher for the Pittsburgh Steelers was Jonathan Dwyer. His 623 yards was the second-lowest total for the team's leading rusher in a full season since Dick Hoak's 531 yards led the way in 1969.

Todd Haley is entering his fourth season as the Steelers' offensive coordinator. After a bumpy start to his tenure in Pittsburgh, Haley directed one of the most explosive offenses in team history in 2014.
Feature ThreePure Steel
Time moves faster in the NFL. Players seem to age more rapidly and rosters turn over more quickly than in any other sport. Nowhere else is this more evident than the Steelers defense, where nine of 2011’s opening day starters are no longer with the team.
