If they're told to sit out or play sparingly, even if it means risking an undefeated record, they won't question it.That's how it works in the Indianapolis locker room, where players abide by a simple rule: Follow the leader."It's what we believe in," defensive captain Gary Brackett said ...

Vick still a devisive topic

PHILADELPHIA - The road back will never be completely clear for Michael Vick.There's plenty of justice in that.Little more than two years have elapsed since he plead guilty to being the ringleader of a dogfighting operation where extreme cruelty was the stock in trade. There's no defending what he did then and there's no chance it will ever be forgotten.That chapter of his life remains part of nearly every story involving his name and it will be somewhere in the opening paragraph of his obit. What remains to be seen is whether it will take ...

Column: Bob Knight right on the money about NCAA hoops

My guess is Kentucky coach John Calipari probably won't earn the $50,000 bonus in his contract for graduating 75 percent of his players. Surely, star freshman John Wall won't be sticking around four years just to help his coach out.
