Welterweight Bout: Andre Berto (31-4) vs. Shawn Porter (26-2-1) Luke Irwin: Rare that a premium cable card doesn’t have a title (even an ABC trinket) headlining it, but that’s refreshing. Berto was a laughable opponent for Mayweather, and the last boxer he beat in his prime

I’ve spent a lot of time studying prospects to come up with my top 100 Saints board. This board is based on need, player talent, and scheme fit.

The Eagles have a lot of work to do this offseason. The team needs to add multiple offensive weapons.
Oregon guard Dillon Brooks flopped not once, but twice on the same play against Utah on Thursday night, and that’s not something we’re used to seeing. It happened when Utah’s Sedrick Barefield attempted to back him down, and then extended his arm. Brooks tried to sell the contact, even though there really wasn’t any
