SEC teams look to find defensive stoppers after draft exodus

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — This week’s NFL draft showcases some of the Southeastern Conference’s top defensive players from a year ago. It also is a window into the SEC’s challenges this year. Last year’s Associated Press All-America team featured six defensive linemen or linebackers from the SEC: Alabama’s Quinnen Williams, Kentucky’s Josh Allen, LSU’s Devin […]

Chargers 2019 NFL draft needs: Defensive tackles should be top priority

The Chargers have gotten it right in recent years when it comes to drafting defensive players.They had the no-brainer selection of Joey Bosa in 2016 and had the good fortune of Derwin James landing in their laps last year. But the Chargers’ scouting team deserves credit for finding Desmond King in the fifth round in 2017 and Denzel Perryman in the second round in 2015. With the home-run picks, the Chargers have become one of the better defenses in the NFL. They have talent in all three areas of ...

Finding the money to fix and modernize Southern California’s interstates

America’s interstate highways are aging and inadequate — and need to be replaced. That’s the conclusion of a major study, requested by Congress, and released last December by the well-respected Transportation Research Board. This expert study estimated that if rebuilding projects were carried out conventionally, it would cost Americans $57 billion per year for the next two decades. Even worse news: At that slow pace of reconstruction, by 2040 pavement conditions and traffic congestion would actu...

NFL defensive back Ha Ha Clinton-Dix's college degree withheld for $1 debt

Chicago Bears defensive back Ha Ha Clinton-Dix tweeted Thursday that the University of Alabama is holding his degree, which he earned in 2018, over a $1 unpaid debt. It's unclear why Clinton-Dix owes Alabama a single dollar but he should have no problem finding the pocket change as he recently signed a one-year, $3 million deal with the Bears in the offseason.

Rams 2019 NFL draft needs: Depleted offensive line could use some help

As Sean McVay turned a hapless mess of an offense into a machine-like juggernaut over the past two seasons, the Rams wunderkind coach was fortunate to have unprecedented consistency along the offensive line. At the outset of Year 3, however, that’s no longer the case up front. Two of the Rams’ most consistent veteran linemen from a year ago have moved on, leaving the offense to count on two inexperienced interior linemen in their place. How McVay chooses to fill those holes up front – and whethe...

NFL rumors: Raiders could make 'big move' for Kyler Murray or Nick Bosa

Many expect the Arizona Cardinals to draft Kyler Murray with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. With four picks in the first 35, Jon Gruden and Mike Mayock have a lot of ammunition to move around in what could be a franchise-altering draft for the Silver and Black. While many have pegged the Raiders as the likely landing spot for Alabama defensive tackle Quinnen Williams at No. 4 overall, few in the NFL would be shocked if the Raiders "made a big move up" in the draft to grab either M...

What to know about UCLA gymnastics in the NCAA championships

LOS ANGELES — The UCLA gymnastics team is two meets away from a second straight national championship. The Bruins barely mentioned that fact this week heading into the NCAA championships in Fort Worth, Texas. “The personality of our team is more about focusing on the little things and focusing on taking one event as a time or taking one skill at a time, even,” junior Gracie Kramer said. “Because we have that mentality, it’s more fun and it’s surprising when the numbers fall into place.” The Brui...

Tua Tagovailoa thinks three-year rule is “fine for me,” but he'd possibly leave if he could

Oklahoma QB Jalen Hurts taking changes in stride

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — New Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts learned at a basketball game just how much Sooners fans already had embraced him. The week Oklahoma announced that Hurts was transferring from Alabama, he was watching halftime festivities during the Sooners’ game against Vanderbilt.

NFL Draft Interior DL Rankings

The spider web of each prospect's test results from the NFL Combine comes courtesy of MockDraftable. This is the sixth installment of my NFL Draft deep-dive scouting series, following quarterbacks, running backs, tight ends, wide receivers, guards, centers and tackles. Next up: edge rushers! All I knew about Quinnen was that he was a young, four-star rotational player, a description that fits every Alabama backup (except for the five-stars!).

Katy Perry calls this ‘American Idol’ front-runner from Pomona her ’emo homie.’

Alejandro Aranda came one step closer to realizing “American Idol” judge Katy Perry’s hunch. During auditions, Perry singled out the 24-year-old dishwasher from Pomona as this season’s front-runner. And he hasn’t strayed from expectations. This week, Aranda sang a duet with Ben Harper, whose family-owned Folk Music Center in Claremont was where he used to go to play guitars. Harper remembered Aranda’s playing. The two musicians, each singing and playing guitar, performed the song “There Will Be ...

Kim Kardashian’s career path has taken her from Paris Hilton hanger-on and sex-tape star to reality-TV staple and fashion and cosmetics mogul — and now attorney at law?

Grand Prix of Long Beach: Colton Herta might be more than chip of the old block

Tom Herta was funny when describing what it was like to see his grandson Colton become the youngest driver to win an NTT IndyCar race. “I was acting like a mad man, jumping up and down, yelling, ‘Go, go, go,’ ” said Herta, one of the original shareholders of what is now called the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach. It happened when Herta won the IndyCar Classic at Circuit of the Americas (in Austin, Texas) on March 24. He was 18 years, 11 months and 25 days old. Graham Rahal previously held the rec...

What should happen in first round of 2019 NFL Draft

Multiple teams lust after Alabama defensive tackle Quinnen Williams, and if I had to bet, I'd put my money on GM Mike Maccagnan picking him here. He's the cleanest prospect in this draft, and I think if the Jets auction the pick, they'd get three premier picks in return. I'd rather have the three picks—maybe two in the top 45 this year and another high pick next year—to get Sam Darnold a top receiver or tight end plus a building-block offensive lineman (Kansas State's Da...

Will Power now really gets it regarding Indianapolis 500

Two years ago this newspaper posed a question to several current and past racing greats: which is bigger, an IndyCar series championship or winning the Indianapolis 500? This is what Will Power, who won the series title in 2014, said at the time: “The measure of the best driver is someone who, over not just one season, but consistently over multiple seasons wins every year. The measure of a driver is the championship. But for prestige, the Indy 500 is obviously just a fantastic, fantastic race. ...
