Football:

ESPN thinks that the trio of Deondre Francois, Cam Akers, & Nyqwan Murray is the seventh-best QB-RB-WR combo in the country: (Insider)

Coming off a breakout redshirt freshman campaign, Francois was generating Heisman buzz going into last season’s opener against Alabama. But then in that showdown, he was lost for the season with a knee injury. Health remains a concern, but the talent is there. There’s also no denying Akers’ talent. He broke the Florida State freshman rushing record last season and could be in for a monster second year. Despite the injury to Francois, Murray led the Seminoles with 604 receiving yards and 40 receptions.

These 12 games will decide the 2018 College Football Playoff race and this year’s Clemson game is near the top of the list.

The chase, recruiting, and off-season notes; the latest edition of the Nolecast has it all.

The QB that most exhibits these traits is the one whom’s most likely going to win this off-season’s quarterback competition.

Derwin James has some gaudy numbers to live up to today because his defensive teammates Josh Sweat, Matthew Thomas, & Jacob Pugh all put up some freaky numbers yesterday at the NFL combine including the fastest 40 among defensive lineman (4.53) & the highest vertical jumps among DL & LB (39.5, 41.5 respectively).

As a second round pick w/ no fifth-year option to lock him in for another year Eddie Goldman is close to a contract extension with the Chicago Bears something the Bears might want to do before the imminent NFL Free Agency period reveals how much he’s actually worth.
