Meet the draft WR whose uncle is a president and Ballon d’Or winner

It’s almost impossible for Weah to become the best athlete in his family, but he could still have a strong NFL career.

Jester Weah was Pitt’s leading receiver in 2016 and 2017. He ran a 4.43-second 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine, tied for sixth among 37 wideouts. At 6’2 and 211 pounds — and with a 38-inch vert — he’s one of the draft’s most enticing deep threats.

Few prospects ever have come from more accomplished athletic families.

He’s the cousin of Tim Weah, a...

Sonny Dykes’ SMU should be an AAC contender by 2019

Sonny Dykes inherits a program on the rise, but it will take him a little while.

Bill C’s annual preview series of every FBS team in college football continues. Catch up here!

In a recent episode of Podcast Ain’t Played Nobody, around the six-minute mark, my co-host Steven Godfrey laid out why SMU nailed it with its hire of former Louisiana Tech and Cal head coach Sonny Dykes.

I think they made an amazing hire in terms of fit. Sonny Dykes was a P5-quality who got into a...

Donovan Mitchell got such an ovation from Jazz fans that he was left speechless

What an amazing moment.

Donovan Mitchell has been a phenom for the Jazz, and the rookie put on a show Monday night as he led the team with 33 points in a 17-point win over the Thunder in the playoffs. After the game the Utah crowd stuck around to show their appreciation, and Mitchell was left without words.

2018 NFL draft the first in years with actual drama at No. 1

We usually know exactly how the NFL draft’s first pick or two will go, but not this time.

In the days before a normal NFL draft, we almost always know who’ll be the No. 1 pick.

Or at least we know which two players from the same position are still in the running, and we have a decent idea of which one is favored.

2017: For months, Myles Garrett was projected No. 1. 2016: Everyone knew the Rams would pick Jared Goff or Carson Wentz. 2015: It’d clearly be either Jameis Winston...

Tuesday’s Say Hey, Baseball takes a look at Jenny Cavnar in the Rockies broadcast booth

In Drew Goodman’s absence, Jenny Cavnar added herself to history. Her accomplishment should excite anyone with an investment in baseball and seeing it succeed. Baseball being equally open to all kinds of people grows the sport. The feat might not have produced as many electric highlights as Max Scherzer did when he etched his name as the third pitcher to coax 20 strikeouts in a game, but it got...

What a new approach to evaluating receivers and tight ends says about the 2018 NFL Draft class

Which pass catchers might surprise you and who will disappoint?

My own personal favorite part of a given draft cycle is when pro coaches and scouts complain that others aren’t helping them do their jobs well enough. This is typically a construct for quarterbacks — they don’t know how to line up under center! — but there are variations.

Earlier in April, for instance, we learned about the [hits cap lock button] NFL’s WIDE RECEIVER CRISIS.

[Ricky] Proehl is definitely buying...
