MSUM has four games remaining in the regular season and are close to the program’s longest winning streak. The Dragons won 16 games in a row during the 1991 92 season. This year’s team would better that mark if it ran the table to end the regular season.

Spend the better part of 2018 doing all the approvals and everything that necessary in starting to build a stadium. Best case, in the next six to eight months we have everything wrapped up. By best case scenario, we have a team on the field by 2020, but that a real stretch.

Oilers have talked to UFAs Gryba, PitlickThe Oilers have talked to unrestricted free agent defenceman Eric Gryba about a new deal and talks are encouraging, but several teams are circling around the veteran defenceman who would slot in as the sixth or seventh blueliner. Gryba would probably like a two year contract after playing on a one year deal last summer. The Oilers have also spoken to unrestricted free agent winger Tyler Pitlick, who scored eight goals in 31 games last year before wrecking his knee.

Yes, the 2008 Lionsset the record for futility with their 0 16 campaign, and the Raiders neatly avoided joining Detroit on that list when they took a 24 20 victory over Kansas City on a rainy Thursday night in Oakland. They followed that effort 10 days later with a 52 0 drubbing at the hands of the St. Louis Rams on Sunday.

“It’s going to be a lot more challenging playing a team like TCU as well coached as they are,” Baker Mayfield, OU senior quarterback, said. “They’re going to be ready to play us.

Was the first time he was ever on a horse. For more than 40 years, DiPardo never missed a Chiefs home game. He worked on a handshake not a contract with Hunt, who loved the impish DiPardo as much as Dawson.Hunt would say that TD stands for Tony DiPardo, who was then and will always be a part of the Chiefs family.I don know why, but I felt no sadness when I saw the nattily attired DiPardo lay at rest at the visitation.

Brian, you weren’t the only one to ask about Section 7 (and also Section 5, as I recall). Jonathan, who grew up in Green Bay and now lives in Citrus Heights, Calif., also asked. When new City Stadium opened in 1957, tickets in the northeast corner were designated for what the Packers first called the “Student Section.” My recollection was that everybody simply called it the “Kids Section.” A season ticket there was $2.25 or 75 cents per game.

The current Cowboys are on a run of eighteen years. Eighteen Years! Even in years when it seems as if the Cowboys have a chance to make a run, a few unbelievably bad games destroy the season, and Cowboy fans are forced to say, next year. After eighteen years of saying, next year, I and a host of other Cowboy fans are saying, not working.

Sherman knows 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh, from Selah’s time from 2011 13 as a defensive assistant on Pete Carroll’s coaching staff in Seattle. Selah’s final season in Seattle was Sherman’s second straight All Pro year when he led the NFL in interceptions and when he turned away the 49ers in the NFC championship game by tipping Colin Kaepernick’s pass back to Seahawks teammate Malcolm Smith for a game winning interception.

Female game developers Brianna Wu and Zoe Quinn have fled their homes in fear after a terrifying barrage of rape and death threats.

Anyway, here we are, closing the books on 2017, with the press engaged as never before, but on a toehold, tenuous at best. The same rules remain in play: Without the media, there is no way forward.
