    RALF RANGNICK says he is happy to work with the squad he has as the New Year transfer window opens. There is money available to the new Manchester United boss and a chance to shift some fringe players on. 1Ralf Rangnick has no qualms handling superstars like Cristiano RonaldoCredit: EPA But Rangnick said: "To speak about future players coming into the club doesn't make sense at this stage when we have to find out which player is in which position, the best possible solution for every game. "Right now for me, it doesn't make sense to think about future players. My full focus is on the current squad and to find for each game the best possible formation and line-up." Rangnick is not afraid to make the big decisions as he proved on Thursday night as he made six changes from the poor performance at Newcastle, only one of which was enforced. He said: "This is always about man management, having a good relationship with the players. But also be aware that you're the one to take the decisions. "Who...
    Eternals Director Chloé Zhao Says Shes Kept Tabs on Harry Styles Since His Role in Dunkirk Australia Hits 80% Vaccination; China Jabs Kids: Virus Update © Provided by NBC Sports Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray is officially questionable for Sunday’s game against the 49ers with an ankle injury. But Cardinals General Manager Steve Keim hinted on Friday that the team may err on the side of caution with Murray. Keim said on 98.7 that the Cardinals have to focus on more than just one game when deciding what to do with their franchise quarterback. Keim’s comments sounded similar to the comments that Cowboys officials made last week before ultimately deciding not to play quarterback Dak Prescott. “I know Kyler can play, he extremely tough, and I don’t think there are any questions in our organization internally about his mental makeup or his willingness to play through anything,” Keim said, via the Cardinals’ website. “We have to be smart whether he is going to play or not and think about the...
    California neighborhood rocked by fireworks explosion, large fire Impaired driving remains hurdle for legal marijuana in NY as lawmakers near deal Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad © Provided by Dot Esports If you’ve been looking forward to seeing League of Legends‘ resident Ruined King on the LEC broadcast, you’ll have to wait a little longer. LEC commissioner Maximilian Peter Schmidt announced today that Viego will remain disabled for the 2021 LEC Spring Split playoffs. It’s been almost two months since Viego hit League’s live servers, but the developers are still finding more bugs and balance issues connected to the new champion. As a result, he hasn’t been able to make his professional debut this year in any region. Last week, Schmidt said that there was a “possibility” that Viego could make his debut during the playoffs, but there are still some game-breaking bugs that would make it hard to deal with on game day. Instead of risking a glitch happening on the big stage and being forced to chronobreak—or remake a match—it’s smarter to...
    Michigan State is on the bubble for the 2021 NCAA Tournament — a rare spot for the Big Ten powerhouse.   The Spartans have made 22 straight tournament appearances under Tom Izzo. Michigan State’s last miss was in 1996-97 in Izzo’s second season. Michigan State (14-10) started the 2020-21 season with six straight victories, but they lost four of their first six Big Ten games before having three games postponed because of COVID-19.   The Spartans, however, are making a run just in time for March. Will that be enough to make the Big Dance? MORE: Projecting the Field of 68 for the 2021 NCAA Tournament Can Michigan State make the NCAA Tournament? Sporting News had Michigan State as one of “first four out” in the latest Field of 68. ESPN has the Spartans as one of the “last four in” in its latest Bracketology.   Michigan State improved its standing with a 64-58 victory against Indiana on Tuesday.   Michigan State and the Big Ten tournament   The Spartans are in ninth place in the Big Ten, meaning they would have to win four games to earn the conference’s automatic bid in the NCAA...
    Despite a 6-0 start that saw Michigan State basketball rated as high as no. 4 in the polls, there’s a good chance the Spartans miss the NCAA Tournament. The Michigan State Spartans are a regular in the NCAA Tournament and the 2020-21 campaign looked like it would be no different. A hot start to the year that included a 6-0 run in non-conference play had the Spartans ranked as high as no. 4 in the polls, but everything has fallen apart for Michigan State in Big Ten play. A 3-7 start to Big Ten play has Michigan State entering the week nowhere near the NCAA Tournament bubble. A win over Duke in the Champions Classic has lost a lot of luster thanks to the struggles of the Blue Devils while a bad loss to Northwestern is an anchor on the Spartans’ resume.Michigan State basketball needs to win the Big Ten Tournament to make the NCAA TournamentThe NET rankings, the NCAA’s new metric that has essentially replaced the RPI for the selection committee, has Michigan State rated 91st.

    The Big Idea is a series that asks top lawmakers and figures to discuss their moonshot — what’s the one proposal, if politics and polls and even price tag were not an issue, they’d implement to change the country for the better? Republican Sen. Jim Inhofe this week rolled out legislation that would make China "play by the same rules as everyone else," and would protect the United States from intellectual property theft. The bill, titled "Protecting American Innovation and Development Act of 2021," seeks to ensure the "continued strength and leadership" of the U.S. in the research and development of key technologies for future wireless telecommunications standards and infrastructure, by providing additional authority for sanctions against certain foreign entities that pose a threat to the country’s national security. US COUNTER-INTEL CHIEF WARNS BIDEN ADMIN OF CHINA'S MALIGN INFLUENCE: 'ONE OF THE BIGGER CHALLENGES' Inhofe’s office told Fox News that many Chinese companies are selling wireless products, like phones, laptops, and televisions, in the U.S. market using American-patented wireless technology, but are refusing to pay licensing or royalty fees to the developers. Inhofe’s office said...
    The Minnesota Timberwolves are looking to rebound after a rough 2019-20 season. Below are five questions about the team that need to be answered.1. Who is in the Timberwolves’ starting backcourt?Timberwolves’ head coach Ryan Saunders has not kept his desire to frequently employ a two lead-guard lineup a secret in the build-up to the 2020-21 season. In fact, that desire was a major factor in the team re-uniting with point guard Ricky Rubio on draft night despite former All-Star D’Angelo Russell already being on the roster.

    This Saturday Sarah Fuller can make college football history and become the first woman to play on a team from the five major NCAA conferences (ACC, Big 12, Big Ten, Pac 12 and SEC). Sarah Fuller could debut with Vanderbilt University due to a COVID-19 outbreak that the team has run out of kickers. Fuller is the goalkeeper of the women’s soccer team and so far it is the most viable option to enter the field to kick, head coach Derek Mason said in conference that it was an option. Fuller herself posted an image on her Twitter account with her uniform and the text “Let’s make history,” wearing the Commodores jersey 32. Let’s make history. #PlayLikeAGirl #AnchorDown pic.twitter.com/3SgBP1qZru – Sarah Fuller (@ SarahFuller_27) November 27, 2020 It may interest you: Lamar Jackson tests positive for COVID-19, will not play against Steelers Dak Prescott undergoes successful surgery after chilling fracture
    If this had been an ordinary year — and it seems safe to say, by now, it certainly is not — coach Ryan Day and the Ohio State Buckeyes would be preparing this week for their seventh game of the season. Instead, they are delighted to be getting set for their opening game. Already, such teams as Clemson, Alabama and Notre Dame have played at least four games and won them all. That’s a lot of ground to make up in a short time. Because the Big Ten initially chose to postpone its football season into the spring, then changed that decision to nearly a two-month delay, the Buckeyes have eight weeks to play eight games, then one more to play in the Big Ten Champions Week.

The Over is 3-0 for Alabama with its combined scores producing 111, 76 and 57 points.

    The Big Ten has a plan for a winter football season and it should give fans reason to be optimistic the league can pull it off. The Big Ten decided to postpone the fall football season and several head coaches in the conference have continued to fight to play. There was seemingly a lack of communication that had teams and fans wondering if there was ever a proper plan in place. The ultimate plan appears to be to play a season in the winter. Ohio State head coach Ryan Day brought up this idea once the fall season was canceled and an article in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel by Jeff Potrykus lays out the reported plan to begin play in January.Big Ten football in the winter will be a unique experience but the league has a plan they hope to execute.The key points involve the fact the teams could use indoor facilities in the Big Ten region and play something around an eight-game schedule.

    With the recent release of EA Sports UFC 4, the game has gone through some changes and has improved upon the foundation laid in the clunky but unique experience laid down in the first game. Aside from expanding an already impressive roster, the game includes new places to fight, tons of customizable options and some gameplay updates to keep players from getting arthritis from the ridiculously complex button inputs. MORE: EA UFC 4 review: Close, but not quite a knockout Sporting News talked with Creative Director Brian Hayes to discuss what went into the new game after getting feedback from UFC 3, bringing a staple from the movie “Bloodsport” into the game, the real story about why Joe Rogan didn’t do commentary this year and whether we’ll ever see another Fight Night game.

    Paul Finebaum thinks the Big 10 canceling football will make the other major conferences continue forward with playing. The Big 10 canceled football earlier in August because of coronavirus, and the reaction has been brutal. Fans, players and coaches have all flipped out. The face of SEC football thinks this backlash will make the SEC, ACC and Big 12 push forward with playing. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) The Big 10 is being run in a way that would make Stalin proud. There’s no transparency, nobody knows the truth and dissension is crushed. This is America. If we let the Big 10 get away with this horrific behavior, then it will only continue. https://t.co/eYY8DyzKwJ — David Hookstead (@dhookstead) August 17, 2020 Finebaum said the following during a Monday appearance on ESPN, according to Saturday Tradition: This may give adrenaline to the other three conferences to move forward without being as careful as they need to be.
