Eagles fans don't really have a problem with Elon. Sure, they're another conference opponent looking to upend GSU on another beautiful Saturday at Paulson…but it's still Elon. The Eagles have dominated Elon (founded 1889), winning six out of six with an average margin of victory of almost 24 since their first meeting in 1998. There like the new kid at the end of the street. Southern fans know he's down there, but have more important things to worry about.

GREENSBORO, N.C. - Welcome to the new Atlantic Coast Conference.
My best fishing buddy is Coach Steve Cisson. He's a machine when it comes to finding and landing all kinds of creatures from the deep. Most of the things I know about the sport, I learned from him including the fact that you should never go out in a small boat on a big lake when there is a storm brewing. I wish to convey that message to you today so that you will not blunder into the trap he led me into one day on Clarks Hill Lake.

Dozens of former players joining a lawsuit against the NFL say teams kept handing out powerful painkillers and other drugs with few - if any- safeguards as recently as 2012. That extends by four years the time frame for similar claims made in the original complaint and could open the door to a criminal investigation.
HOYLAKE, England - Rory McIlroy only saw birdies at Royal Liverpool, mostly on his scorecard, and even one pheasant that trotted across the eighth green as he was lining up a putt. That was but a minor interruption in his command performance Friday in the British Open.
