Danny Amendola's fair catch of Brad Nortman's punt at his 14 came with 2:02 remaining, which essentially gave Brady and Belichick an extra timeout with which to work.

Kansas sophomore center Udoka Azubuike is one of the more reliable finishers around the rim in all of college basketball. Azubuike is considering anything in hopes of changing that - even underhand free throws. In Kansas' narrow win over Baylor on Saturday, Azubuike shot 4 of 11 from the stripe and missed a crucial pair of free throws that gave Baylor a chance at a narrowly missed game-winning shot. It doesn't take extensive views of Azubuike's free throws to notice the deficiencies in his form.

A four-star small forward at Iowa City West, McCaffery is considered both the best player in the state of Iowa and one of the nation's top-40 overall hoops prospects.
There was national outrage and shock over Imus using racial and sexist slurs to slander a team that battled its way to the NCAA Tournament finals only to lose to Pat Summitt's Lady Vols. We were stripped of this moment by degrading comments made by Mr Imus last Wednesday. What hurts the most about this situation is that Mr Imus knows not one of us personally. Imus found employment on another New York radio station, WABC.
