UGA offense to get boost with Green's return

SHREVEPORT, La. - Georgia's offense showed down the stretch it could still make plays even with its biggest playmaker sidelined, especially in its upset of top-10 Georgia Tech.Now Georgia is blending receiver A.J. Green back into its mix for Monday's Independence Bowl. He's rejoining an offense that averaged a robust 235 rushing yards in its last three games."We're glad he's back because even if he doesn't get eight balls for 160 yards, he's one of those guys where his presence kind of makes people gameplan towards him," quarterback Joe Cox said ...

INDIANAPOLIS - Peyton Manning and his teammates won't even lobby Colts coach Jim Caldwell to play the final two regular-season games.If Caldwell tells them go for the perfect season, they will bring the same approach that helped them become the NFL's third 14-0 team. 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.
