    The entire football world watched Shedeur Sanders and the Colorado Buffaloes upset the Horned Frogs of TCU last Saturday afternoon. Even the GOAT, Tom Brady, tuned in. Brady was so impressed with the Buffaloes' victory that he personally reached out to Shedeur, Deion's son and Colorado's starting quarterback. His message was a simple one: "Don't be satisfied" with just one win. Strive for more. "Don't be satisfied," Brady said in a text to Shedeur.

    Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh reportedly will be suspended by the program following self-imposed sanctions. Harbaugh had been facing a four-game suspension from the NCAA, but negotiations collapsed seemingly at the 11th hour. It now appears UM will attempt to cut off the NCAA Committee on Infractions before it can get involved. The program will suspend Harbaugh for all three non-conference games, according to multiple Monday afternoon reports. No official announcement has come from the university. If the reported suspension decision holds, Harbaugh will miss games against East Carolina, UNLV and Bowling Green, and the star coach will then return...

    College expansion has been a wild ride over the past year or so, and it doesn't appear to be ending anytime soon. The Big Ten has spearheaded the movement. The storied conference adds USC and UCLA in 2024. It may not be done, either. Barstool Sports' Jack McGuire is hearing a rumor that the Big Ten is adding four schools this week: Clemson, Florida State, Oregon and Washington. That would poach two universities from the ACC - arguably its top-two athletics programs - and two from the Pac-12 - arguably its best as well, even with USC and UCLA in...

    California's San Diego State men's basketball team banned from paying for travel to Texas to play in program's first Final Four game A lawmaker in California is hoping to overturn the state's ban on government funding for travel to states with laws they find discriminatory. Since 2016, California has been steadily adding to its list of U.S. destinations barred from state-funded travel. The practice began in retaliation to North Carolina enacting a law requiring people to use the bathrooms that corresponded with their biological sex. State Sen. Toni Atkins is seeking to overturn the prohibition, saying that the cumbersome regulations...

    After years of being a mediocre swimmer on the men’s team, Thomas woke up one morning and identified as transgender, transitioned, joined the women’s team, and started breaking records against his female teammates and tournament competitors. Since robbing real women of opportunities wasn’t enough for him, he also disrespected his teammates by exposing his male genitalia to them in the locker room. And now, Riley Gaines, a former teammate of Thomas, is calling for changes to be made by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). “We were not forewarned beforehand that we would be sharing a locker room with Lia....

The group Concerned Women for America, among the country’s biggest women’s policy organizations, will be holding a rally to greet the leaders of the NCAA as they arrive, but they won’t be bringing flowers or asking for autographs. They will be handing in a petition with thousands of signatures from women around the country demanding that the NCAA stop allowing men who “identify” as women to compete...
