As long as everyone abides by the rules as laid down,¡± McMahon said, an obvious reference to everyone standing for the anthem.If the XFL overlooks Manziel¡¯s past, let¡¯s be honest: Manziel would be a great get for the new football league. He¡¯s a former first-round pick and his fame grew to a point where he was one of the buzziest names in the entire NFL, though his play on the field rarely rose to that level. His fame came from some notoriety, but it¡¯s not like that hasn¡¯t been in the McMahon¡¯s WWE playbook.?USA Today senior college football analyst Dan Wolken published his CFB Playoff predictions for the 2018 season Tuesday and he went all chalk ... almost. Wolken likes Clemson, Alabama, Ohio State and Washington to get to the final four, the same group of teams that reached the Playoff at the end of the 2016 season. : Early 2018 Heisman Trophy odds The Buckeyes' biggest threat in the Big Ten is Michigan State, not Wisconsin, he says and believes the Spartans could benefit from quarterback uncertainty at Michigan and personnel losses at Penn State.

Just a few weeks after agreeing to be the new associate head coach and defensive line coach for the Aggies, Montgomery decided to return to Green Bay to serve as Mike McCarthy¡¯s defensive line coach with the Packers. The Packers announced his new position in Green Bay on Wednesday. ¡°It was the right move for me and my family,¡± Montgomery said, according to Ryan Wood of PackersNews.com. ¡°I got on a plane, got back and met with Coach.

Same as it ever was. When the 2018 NASCAR Media Tour started, no one had a clue what topic would emerge to dominate the annual handful of days stock car racing sets aside to do some talking and writing and more talking and then more writing. In years past, the theme has been an easy guess. But this year there was no kickoff news conference from NASCAR itself. There was no big change to the postseason format (thank heavens), no series title sponsorship announcement, no nothing. No touchstone.. Nike¡¯s Air Max 1 silhouette had a very busy 2017 campaign, including the return of numerous OG colorways in celebration of the sneaker¡¯s 30th anniversary. One of those resurgent color schemes was the Air Max 1 ¡°Obsidian¡± that utilizes the dark navy hue with a mixture of grey and quick hits of red on the toe of the outsole as well as its Nike branding. Now the Swoosh is taking the aforementioned Obsidian hue and re-using it on the same model completely devoid of any red. Other than that, the two designs are practically identical, making these a more than suitable consolation prize for anyone that missed out on adding another OG Air Max 1 to their collection.Drake¡¯s OVO camp took to Twitter to confirm the much anticipated release date for their next collaboration with Jordan Brand. This time around, the Toronto-based collective is bringing their signature white/gold aesthetic to the Air Jordan 8 Retro, with red accents hitting the Jumpman on the tongue. A special edition box will also come with this premium release, which is now confirmed to hit select retailers on February 16th.

Will 2018 be the strongest year for the OVO x Jordan partnership?Nike¡¯s ¡°All Over Logo¡± is back once again, this time on an unlikely silhouette that is gearing up for a comeback in 2018. Nike Tennis¡¯ Grandstand II from 1992 can be seen here dripped entirely in white with the aforementioned logo taking shape all across its upper. Featuring a blend of perforated and smooth leather on its upper, the Grandstand II boasts a simple midsole construction which creates a very clean aesthetic ¨C allowing for the boisterous branding to take center stage. Originally, the Grandstand¡¯s name derived from one of the most famous tennis tournaments in the world ¨C the US Open and its Grandstand. Fans of this Nike-friendly design will be able to pick up this Tennis gem from Nike Sportswear retailers when they hit shelves on January 26th.Last week, JUICE HK¡¯s adidas NMD Racer collaboration made its debut exclusivey at the Hong Kong-based retailer. Tomorrow, the first Racer collaborative effort will be unveiled to the world as it arrives at Consortium accounts all around the globe.

Form truly does meet function with the new NMD Racer, as its updated tooling creates extra support while also providing designers with new elements to dress up. The JUICE HK x adidas NMD Racer will be available at select Consortium Accounts on January 20th with an MSRP of 220.00.

The most significant change on the upcoming Derrick Rose signature shoe is that it no longer features BOOST, a cushioning unit that was a mainstay with the embattled former MVP¡¯s signature shoes since the debut of the D Rose 5. It is likely that the Three Stripes chose to design this sneaker without its patented foam technology in order to lower the price-point as a response to the falling demand and market for Rose¡¯s sneakers. Is is likely that Derrick Rose¡¯s upcoming shoes will feature BOUNCE technology, which is currently featured in brand-mate Damian Lillard¡¯s signature shoe, the Dame 4, so it¡¯s possible that the MSRP of the upcoming D Rose 9 will be closer to 5 than the current 0 MSRP of the D Rose 8. Earlier photos of the ninth shoe revealed ADIWEAR, which is likely a foam-based cushioning..

Featuring Carbon¡¯s ¡°4D¡± printed outsole, this upcoming sneaker by Yohji Yamamoto features an all-black Primeknit upper with the exposed workings of the lacing structure and an exterior leather heel counter. There¡¯s also leather support piece at the medial toe, but the real attraction is the color-blocked Futurecraft sole that sees the light green with a blacked out midfoot.

Based on the earlier adidas Y-3 footwear preview, we should expect the adidas Y3 Futurecraft 4D shoe to arrive in stores sometime in Fall/Winter 2018.. Nike is giving its fans across the globe a head start on what¡¯s to come for Air Max Day 2018. The annual celebration, which falls on March 26th, has been one of the brand¡¯s most important marketing campaigns ever as it has reinvigorated the Air Max classics while catapulting new innovations into the forefront of what¡¯s hot and new. The new model to fawn over this year is, of course, the Air Max 270, a shoe that we heavily previewed in prior weeks in various colorways. However, there are plenty of retro-themed releases such as the return of the Air 180 ¡°Ultramarine¡±, Air Max 93 ¡°Dusty Cactus¡±, and of course the wide release of Sean Wotherspoon¡¯s Air Max 97/1. See the full rundown below..First, he sent out a picture of a UA Curry 4 and thanked the brand for a special experience and ended it by saying ¡°IM BOUT TO GET RIGHT¡±.

Peep that video in its entirety below and keep it locked to Sneaker News for updates.. On the heels of a grey version of the Air Jordan 13 being gifted to the Oregon Ducks¡¯ basketball team, Nike is hooking its football team up with a colorway of its own. In a nod to the state¡¯s beautiful green landscape, this 13 is covered in quad green, with a white toe box, and a matching green duck that replaces the shoe¡¯s traditional hologram. In a more obvious way, the Jumpman that customarily rests on this sneaker¡¯s tongue has been replaced with an oversized Oregon ¡°O¡± logo. Sadly, this shoe is limited to friends and family of the Oregon football program, so unless that is you, all you can do it enjoy the set of images you see below.. The two prevailing trends in sneakers right now are being tackled head on by Yohji Yamamoto¡¯s adidas Y-3 sub-label this upcoming Fall/Winter 2018 season as a series of footwear has been unveiled at Paris Fashion Week. The deconstructed aesthetic, which features exposed stitching and panels to the point where the shoes almost looked entirely flipped inside out, is heavily present in this new batch of footwear. Additionally, the chunky ¡°dad shoe¡±look is also a common theme with some of the silhouettes, which appear to take on the Feet Your Wear look that will be seen in the upcoming adidas Crazy BYW 1. See what adidas Y-3 has in store for FW 2018 below and let us know which of these is your favorite..To put the Epic React to the test, Nike invited select media/influencers/bloggers to a special product unveiling in NYC with an obstacle course. A foam pit with soft cubes, a mini-relay with pillars made of tires, a wind tunnel with feathers, and a bouncy platform to test hops were stationed ¨C all with the purpose of trial-ing the new running shoe in four different environments of mobility. To give the shoes a more real-world test, I walked back from the event space to the office; throughout the 1.2 miles the shoes produced a forward-propelling effect ¨C the so-called ¡°energy return¡± aspect ¨C that kept me light on my toes. REACT foam is much softer than traditional EVA foam, so Nike had to make the sole thicker to prevent it from flattening over time ¨C a common problem with other foam-based cushioning units in the market today. Despite its thickness, the support on the Foam is zonal so there is not ¡°boat¡±-ish feel to them. As a casual everyday shoe, the Epic React is definitely recommended..

I think the main thing you have to do is be in tune with your athlete and let their personality come out, and that can be what separates the shoe from the rest. As long as you¡¯re really bringing their personality out and what¡¯s unique to them, the people that want to connect with it will. That¡¯s what we try to do ¨C keep it really authentic to him.

In the latest 2018 NFL mock draft from CBS Sports, the Broncos luck out by getting the most pro-ready passer in this year¡¯s draft at No. 5 overall, as UCLA¡¯s Josh Rosen falls right into their lap. After the Cleveland Browns opt for USC¡¯s Sam Darnold at No. 1 overall, the New York Giants to pass on Rosen and the rest of this year¡¯s top quarterbacks at No. 2, preferring Penn State running back Saquon Barkley.

San Francisco will pick ninth or 10th, pending the results of a coin flip with the Oakland Raiders, who finished with an identical record and strength of schedule. General manager John Lynch will have some 0-million in cap space and nine selections in the NFL draft to continue rebuilding the roster with coach Kyle Shanahan. Our friends at Draft Wire published their latest four-round mock NFL draft this week, predicting the first five picks for San Francisco. Let¡¯s take a look and break down how the choices would fit. Veteran center Daniel Kilgore and guard.Other than LeBron James scoring his 30,000th point, not a lot is going right for the Cleveland Cavaliers lately. Team unrest has taken over the headlines, as the Cavs have dropped seven of their last 10 games, coinciding with Isaiah Thomas¡¯ return to the lineup. Players are reportedly sniping at teammates during team meetings. Nowhere was the team discord more evident than on the floor during the Cavs¡¯ 114-102 loss Tuesday to the Spurs. After Kevin Love takes an elbow to the face from LaMarcus Aldridge and falls down, not one Cavs teammate goes over to help him up. In fact, Jae Crowder stepped over Love, who had his hand extended, to take the ball out of bounds. The Spurs¡¯ Dejounte Murray seemed..The Bulls finished the loss shooting just 38.3 percent from the field. Now they'll face a Lakers team that has built its recent winning ways around defense, which could mean trouble if the Bulls can't muster more of an effort than they did Wednesday against the 76ers."We have to bring energy," Bulls guard Zach LaVine told reporters. "We really aren't at that point where we can turn it on at any time. We haven't even jelled that much together as a team yet.. He¡¯s not super vocal. If he¡¯s not saying anything, he probably likes it. Actually, one of the obstacles we had with the PG 1 was just getting him to say when he didn¡¯t like something. He¡¯s kinda like the guy who doesn¡¯t want to hurt your feelings, but we encourage him to tell us how he really feels. That was something we had to break through, for him to be comfortable enough to say what he wanted to say to us, and we¡¯ve that for a while now..

While the shoe is designed for running, it is not necessarily geared toward runners, as it is meant to help an athlete gain a competitive edge, control tempo, and in the end, dominate their game.. "Unlikely Phils would be high bidder, but if player fell into their range - preferably short-term - they might jump," Rosenthal wrote.The Phillies' current projected payroll for 2018 is around million. Even by adding a pitcher like Darvish or Jake Arrieta to a one-year deal worth, say, million, the Phils still wouldn't have an egregiously high payroll. In fact, they'd still have one of the 10 lowest projected payrolls. It would make them a whole lot more competitive in 2018 and perhaps more intriguing to next year's class.. But as has been the trend with the Lakers, the ability to find a way to get a stop at the other end of the floor came to the rescue."The message right now is defense," Walton told reporters Tuesday, according to the Los Angeles Times, after his team missed 15 free throws in the win. "Everything is defense. Because we're shooting this (percentage) from the free throw line, because we're not doing this -- whatever it is -- we're still able to win games because of our defense."The Lakers' 21-of-36 showing from the line against the Celtics followed a woeful 2-of-14 effort in a 13-point victory over the Indiana Pacers last week.

Two job openings linked closely together that will have a significant impact on the direction the Vikings take following an NFC Championship Game appearance. Zimmer has to get this right. Both decisions. Often when teams go searching for a quarterback and offensive coordinator, something went horribly wrong. They're usually starting over. That's not Zimmer's reality. His team is built to contend now. The Vikings' no-show dud in Philadelphia won't lower expectations by meaningful degree, as long as Zimmer and general manager Rick Spielman don't whiff on those two pressing needs ¨C quarterback and offensive coordinator.That's why Bill Belichick credited one current and one former member of the coaching staff, Josh McDaniels and Mike Lombardi, with helping the Patriots land those two key offensive cogs a week-and-a-half before taking on the Eagles in Super Bowl LII.Amendola, who scored two fourth-quarter touchdowns in the AFC title game against the Jaguars to help the Patriots overcome a 10-point deficit, spent just 2011 season with McDaniels (then the Rams offensive coordinator), and Amendola was hurt for the majority of that year, playing in just one regular-season game.Though that doesn't seem like much, Belichick said McDaniels' experience with Amendola was critical in knowing he was a player the Patriots should pursue. Without any assurances that Wes Welker would be back in 2013, that's exactly what they did. Really, the light went on with Josh," Belichick said Wednesday. "Josh was here. Josh had had him in St. Louis, and we saw a good player in St. Louis, but you didn't see all the things behind the scenes that you kind of can see when you actually have the player on your team.Josh saw that, and he made me aware of -- us aware -- of what all the things that Danny does, and how well he does [them], and what his skills were and so forth. That's kind of when it started, and once we got him here, then all that became evident to everybody who works with him."?Two of Nike¡¯s OG Air Max 98 colorways are nearing their return, as the ¡°Gundam¡± and ¡°Navy/Yellow¡± colorways are coming soon to stores. While the sneakers were originally slated to drop on January 18th in the US, stateside retailers have confirmed with us that the release of the navy/yellow is now January 26th, and the ¡°Gundam¡± has been postponed to February 24th. 2018 is gearing up to be a big year for the 98, as it is celebrating its 20th anniversary, which should lead to an uptick of drops for one of the more underutilized Air Max designs. A revived enthusiasm for 1990s Nike originals should lead to a much more successful 2018 campaign for this model, much unlike its re-issue in 2014 that several colorways hit sales racks. European retailers, however, are prepared to role out both OG pairs on January 26th for 0 USD. That may be subject to change, so stay tuned for updates.Last March, Nike invited eight young athletes called the ¡°Imaginairs¡± to their World Headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon. They each got to design a crazy colorway of the Air Max Zero, working closely with Nike designers to fine-tune their concepts into realized concepts. It was the first time the Air Max Zero, which debuted in March of 2015, was redesigned for youths. Leading up to Air Max Day 2018, Nike will launch each of these Air Max Zero colorways in limited quantity; see all release dates below.This week in Sneaker News¡¯ Top Stories, all eight sneakers that are part of the illustrious Dragon Ball Z x adidas collaboration have been revealed as well as their release months.

It¡¯s always been head down and work your ass off, and that hasn¡¯t really changed.¡±.What¡¯s new with Paul George¡¯s next signature shoe is both obvious and hidden. For one, the shoe doesn¡¯t feature a strap anymore, and the interior bootie has been replaced for a classic tongue construction. The outsole traction has been spaced out for better grip, and the Zoom bag is 2 millimeters thicker and sits directly under the foot. All of these substantial changes deliver exactly what Paul wants and needs in his shoe. There are several discoverable elements that pay tribute to his close-knit family, who is regularly present during Paul¡¯s design brainstorms with Tony.
