At this point in the 2013 season, it's fair to say that the Samford Bulldogs are underrated. Coming off back-to-back wins over Georgia Southern and Appalachian State, the Bulldogs (5-2, 3-0 Southern Conference) come in at No. 22 in the Sports Network Football Championship Subdivision Top 25, and are still unranked in the FCS coaches poll. Even Samford coach Pat Sullivan doesn't think his team is getting enough respect. "No I ...
FLOWERY BRANCH - The Atlanta Falcons returned from their bye week Tuesday with big holes to fill on offense. Running back Steven Jackson was only an observer and wide receiver Roddy White and left tackle Sam Baker were not on the field for the portion of the practice open to reporters. White, already slowed by a right ankle sprain, left the Falcons' 30-28 loss to the New York Jets on Oct. 7 ...
In just three seasons, the Statesboro High volleyball program has gone from promising upstart to a team to be reckoned with. Last season, the Blue Devils made the Class AAAA state tournament, nearly pulling off a road upset against a top-seeded opponent in just their second year of existence. Statesboro is back for more this season and will kick off the state tournament tonight as it hosts Cedartown. "This success is just ...
ATHENS - Amarlo Herrera believes that Georgia's defense isn't nearly as bad as its numbers suggest. Problem is the near meltdowns that occurred in narrow wins over LSU and Tennessee finally brought the Bulldogs down in last week's home loss to Missouri. "It's been bad," Herrera said on Tuesday. "We want to win. We play defense so we don't like giving up points. We've just to work on that." When the ...

HOMESTEAD, Fla. - There was no trash talking, no attempts at mind games. If there was tension or nerves, nobody could tell. In one of the tamest NASCAR title contenders' news conferences in recent memory, Matt Kenseth and Kevin Harvick kept it light and breezy as they discussed their championship chances against Jimmie Johnson. <p class="MsoNormal" style="mso-margin-top-alt: auto; mso-margin-bottom-alt: auto; line-height: ...
MIAMI - Jonathan Martin could sue the Miami Dolphins for big money under a variety of workplace laws that make employers liable for bullying, harassment and discrimination - even if the team's hierarchy didn't know about it, according to several legal experts.

A good way to get some in-depth information about a career is to go online and type in the Bureau of Labor Statistics, mess around with that database for a tad and then switch to Occupational Outlook Handbook. As they say in West Virginia, "You'll have more stuff than you can shake a stick at." I have no idea what that means, but it sounds good.
