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.

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.
