    Five more Pac-12 women’s basketball games were postponed on Tuesday after a weekend in which only two conference games were played. The latest COVID-related postponements mean Utah, Arizona State and Washington (and perhaps others) will have played no league games through the first two weeks of the round-robin schedule — and that all 12 teams will have missed at least one game. How many will be made up, if any, is unknown. Only a handful of teams have compete since the Hotline’s power ratings were published just before Christmas, so there aren’t radical changes. But we’re resetting the deck chairs and keeping fingers crossed that as many of the seven games still scheduled through this week actually are played.

    More On: fdny Behind New York’s crackdown on illegal summer fireworks FDNY officer wins suit to get promotion after ripping diversity hiring FDNY truck collides with vehicle in Brooklyn, injures 10 FDNY widows mark anniversary of inferno that killed their husbands The FDNY appointed a new chief of department Thursday — as the 40-year veteran’s longtime colleague was tapped to fill his old role as chief of fire operations. “I’m truly humbled and honored to be promoted to chief of the department,” Thomas Richardson said at his swearing-in ceremony, adding, “I want to thank Commissioner [Daniel] Nigro for having the confidence in me to lead the department.” Richardson, who joined the department in 1980 at Engine Company 227 in Brooklyn, was sworn in to the top spot with his son holding the Bible — a moment he said he’ll “never forget.” Chief John Hodgens was also promoted to fill Richardson’s shoes in his former role as chief of fire operations. Hodgens, a 35-year department vet, previously served as Richardson’s assistant and is a longtime friend of the new chief of...
    For the third straight week, Alabama, Notre Dame, Clemson and Ohio State held on to the top four spots in the College Football Playoff rankings. The selection committee’s second-from-last rankings had only a little movement in the top 10. Texas A&M is still fifth and Florida held at sixth. Iowa State moved up a couple of spots to seventh after earning a spot in the Big 12 title game. Cincinnati slipped a spot to eighth after an idle week because of COVID-19 issues in the program. The Bearcats also will not play this week against Tulsa, the committee’s 24th-ranked team. Those two schools are scheduled to meet Dec. 19 in the American Athletic Conference title game. Ohio State is also currently without a game this weekend after Michigan had to cancel because of a COVID-19 outbreak. The Buckeyes had to cancel their game two Saturdays ago because of their own virus issues. Last week they beat Michigan State 52-12 without more than a dozen scholarship players, including three starting offensive linemen. “That certainly got our attention,” selection committee chairman...
    We're number one! And number two! And four and five! This week, U.S. News & World Report released its list of the "150 Best Places to Live in the U.S. in 2020-21," one of those rare listicle efforts that actually gets some respect. And this round, Colorado cities took four of the five top spots in the country. Boulder ranked first and Denver second; Colorado Springs came in fourth and Fort Collins fifth. The only city to stop a Colorado sweep was Austin, which placed third. In their Facebook comments on our story about Colorado's near sweep, some readers applauded...and some demanded a recount. Says Aby:  Don't spill the beans, we are still a best-kept secret. Love Colorado! Adds Alexis:  Please just stop putting these things out there. We are FULL. Notes Pat: We will be loved to death soon. Replies Sara Ann: Cool, I hope this further raises my property value so I can cash out and move to someplace cheaper, less crowded and less crazy.

    The preseason Coaches Poll was released Thursday, and Clemson was sitting at the top. Clemson was number one in the preseason poll, and the Ohio State Buckeyes followed at number two. Alabama, Georgia and LSU rounded out the top five. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) Wisconsin checked in at number 12.   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Clemson Football (@clemsonfb) on Aug 6, 2020 at 6:16am PDT Do I hate the initial rankings from the Coaches Poll? No. I can live with them. The top two teams have to be Clemson and Ohio State. If you pick any other team to be in the top two spots, then you don’t know what you’re talking about. Now, we can debate until the end of the day the order OSU and the Tigers should be in, but they’re absolutely the two best teams on paper. They both have elite coaches, NFL quarterbacks and pro talent all over the field. Any other team in the top two spots to start...
