For all the divas among NFL receivers, and there are plenty of them, there are just as many difference makers. They showed themselves in impressive and, in Calvin Johnson's case, incredible form on Sunday. Megatron's meganumbers were so astounding that several Dallas defensive backs could do little more than shrug at how he dominated them in a scintillating 31-30 Lions victory. Brandon Carr, a good cornerback who was left in single coverage ...

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Team after team passed on Andre Ellington in the draft. On Sunday, in the blur of an 80-yard touchdown run, he showed them what they missed. The sixth-round draft pick from Clemson, starting because Rashard Mendenhall was out with an injured toe, rushed for 154 yards on 15 carries and the Arizona Cardinals intercepted four of Matt Ryan's passes in a 27-13 victory over the Atlanta Falcons. Ellington's big run, tied for ...

The usually mindless 25-minute commute to the office has required a little more attention the past few mornings. Crews of men in hard hats and florescent-trimmed vests have been supervising the cutting down of some rather large pine trees along the apron of 301 South, and a little farther down, another group has been digging troughs for, I assume, the long line of pale aqua pipe pieces that have been littering the ditch like ...
An amazing statistic in the Bible relates to the growth of the Israelites after they went down to Egypt. At that time, they numbered 70 souls. When they left under Moses' leadership 400 years later, many believe they had increased to well over a million. Generations later, when King David commanded the numbering of his army, he was given the figure of 1.57 million!

The Charleston Cougars played their last SoCon season in ...
ATHENS - Hutson Mason's long-awaited first start against Georgia Tech on Saturday will show if the junior can handle the pressure of being Georgia's quarterback. At least coach Mark Richt believes it will. One thing is certain, Mason definitely had plenty of time to prepare for the opportunity. Mason, who was redshirted in 2012, waited four years as Aaron Murray made 52 consecutive starts. Mason's patience was tested but he stuck ...
