Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White isn’t afraid to admit how crucial Conor McGregor has been to the popularity of the promotion.

Atlanta United FC

The story of Atlanta United’s first season is halfway told and already the revelations have come in waves. And they are not all confined to the soccer field squeezed into big-time college football’s oldest address.

Michigan Defeats UNC 84-67 Wed Nov 28, 2018

College Basketball

In the biggest non-conference home game in recent memory, No. 7 Michigan blew by No. 11 North Carolina, 84-67, in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge on Wednesday at Crisler Center.

The Wolverines turned around a 10-point first half deficit in the blink of an eye and went into the break with a four-point lead.

The second half was all Michigan. The Wolverines opened up a double-digit lead. Then they pushed that lead to 20.

North Carolina made an 11-0 run and found itself still facing an 11-point deficit. And then Michigan responded, with a quick seven-point spurt.

Ignas Brazdeikis scored a game-high 24 points, and Charles Matthew added 21 points for the Wolverines.

College Football season is nearly upon us and several programs across the nation are facing various kinds of pressure. With Michigan the picture seems to be clear. Where is the bar Jim Harbaugh and his staff need to clear in 2021 to remain in place moving forward? There is a different kind of pressure that doesn't include anything related to job security at UGA, but it's pressure nonetheless. Will Kirby Smart and the Bulldogs finally bring home a national title? Meanwhile at USC Clay Helton is in the unique position of feeling job security pressure despite an appearance in the Pac-12 Championship game just last season. With the Trojans entering this season ranked inside the top 20 could a 9+ win campaign quiet the noise?
