      I always have enjoyed the Aflac commercials with Nick Saban and Deion Sanders. Saban, who is known for having zero personality, almost comes across as human. Sanders, who has one of the most oversized personalities in all of sports, comes across as, well, Prime Time. What a pair they are. But I'm going to look at those television spots a little differently now. Everybody knows Saban is going ...

        STORRS, Conn. — The UConn football team is in a league of its own — and won it. “We were sitting here at 1-4, we gave up 148 points in those three games, NC State, Syracuse and Michigan, we kind of had a reset meeting,” coach Jim Mora said after practice Wednesday. “And we talked about some objectives. It’s going to sound kind of silly. We decided to create our own conference.” This could be ...

            West Virginia quarterback JT Daniels is entering the transfer portal and could be headed to his fourth school, ESPN reported Tuesday. He started 10 games for the Mountaineers this season before being benched in favor of sophomore Garrett Greene. A five-star prospect in the Class of 2018, Daniels started his career at Southern California, then moved on to Georgia and, finally, West Virginia. He started the season opener in 2019 for the Trojans and sustained a season-ending injury, tearing multiple ligaments in his right knee. He transferred to Georgia in 2020 and spent two up-and-down seasons with the Bulldogs, despite a 7-0 mark as a starter. With Stetson Bennett returning as Georgia's incumbent starter in 2022, Daniels transferred to West Virginia. Greene replaced Daniels on Nov. 12 against Oklahoma and led the Mountaineers to a 23-20 win. In his one season at West Virginia, Daniels completed 61.2 percent of his passes for 2,107 yards with 13 touchdowns and nine interceptions. In 31 career games between the three programs, Daniels has thrown for 6,947 yards with 45 TDs and 25 interceptions. Daniels, 22, has one year of eligibility remaining but could have a second if he is granted a medical redshirt for 2019, ESPN reported. --Field Level Media
