Two years earlier, a bill by the same name had been scuttled after outcry over its intent – t...

Buffalo Sabres Are Surging After 9-0 Run

BUFFALO, N.Y. — The Buffalo Sabres are on such a roll, captain Jack Eichel was having difficulty recalling the last time they lost. “Um, was it Calgary?” Eichel said Monday, before being reminded the 2-1 overtime defeat to the Flames was three losses ago. “Yeah, Rangers, in New York,” he said, finally recalling a 3-1 loss on Nov. 4 that dropped Buffalo’s record to 7-6-2.

Alexander: As goes USC, so goes Pac-12 football

Is it fair to say that in choosing not to fix what appears to be broken, USC athletic director Lynn Swann is not only messing with his school’s football brand but that of the entire Pac-12? Consider this from old friend Jon Wilner, who covers the conference for the Bay Area News Group: Wilner measured the present state of USC football by comparing it to programs that could be considered the Trojans’ peers nationally, based on all-time national championships, Heisman Trophy winners, bowl appearan...
