After another busy weekend of college hoops the Tournament Bubble ha’s begun to shrink. I comfortably cut 10 teams out of the bubble picture this week, leaving 27 teams battling over the last 10 spots in the field.

After all the talk about the boxing match between Soulja Boy and Chris Brown, who really don’t like each other, it appears that the bout is no longer going to happen. Soulja Boy took to Twitter on Monday with an important announcement, and tweeted out that the boxing match has been cancelled. Chris brown manager call my manager last night sand said the fight is off and he's not signing contract.
Last night Ryan Johansen came back to Nationwide Arena for the first time since his trade to the Nashville Predators. The trade brought Seth Jones to the Blue Jackets and it marked a trade that helped out both teams. After the game, Johansen was asked by the media about the lack of video “thank you” from the team.

Ryan Johansen deserved a tribute video from the Blue Jackets
Kings general manager Vlade Divac, after hearing all the criticism about the DeMarcus Cousins trade, appeared to reveal why the team made the move on Monday. The team held a press conference on Monday to officially announce the trade, and Divac delivered a statement that talked about how “culture” is important in building a winning team, and how much “character matters.” This was clearly a reference to Cousins, who has had his issues with technical fouls and erupting during games.
Jonathan Drouin scored at 2:27 of the overtime on a highlight reel play and Ben Bishop made 27 saves for the Tampa Bay Lightning as they beat the Colorado Avalanche 3-2 lat night. The Lightning (26-24-8) are 4-0-2 in their past six games and 3-0-3 in their past six on the road.
Going into tonight’s game, some were worried the Jackets would already be in vacation mode with their five-day bye week starting tomorrow. But, for the most part, those watching were pleasantly surprised. The Jackets held pace with the Predators for most of the game, bested them in shots (57.76% score and venue adujsted Corsi for at even strength), clawed back from a 3-1 deficit to tie the game, and had landmark nights from two of their highly touted youth…we’ll get to that…but ultimately, it was the mistakes, the turnovers, the bad line changes that cost the Jackets.
The Aftermath Game #58: Predators @ Blue Jackets
It doesn’t look like Jimmy Butler will be traded this season, even though one general manager believes the Bulls would accept a “Godfather offer” if it fell in their lap. Maybe next season the Bulls will commit to a rebuild, as some believe they should do. But it’s not going to happen this season, and they’re going to hope something clicks late in the season so they can make a playoff push
When it comes to building a roster and staying under the salary cap, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is head and shoulders above everyone else in the NFL. Belichick knows how to get players to play for him for less than market value, and he also knows to part ways with them when the time is right.
Defensive end is a position that stands out as an area of immediate need for the New Orleans Saints going into the 2017 offseason, more specifically the side opposite Cameron Jordan. Jordan ironically said recently he actually wants the team to add some cornerbacks, likely to help give the defensive line those few precious extra seconds to get after the quarterback. I agree with both of those being I love the defensive aspect of football, but I also know how important having the right pieces on offense can be and it all starts up front with the offensive line

Guard Spot Could Get Expensive For Saints In Free Agency
It was only last year that the English Premier League had a Cinderella story playing out in real life. Instead of the usual teams jockeying for the top spot, newly-promoted Leicester City was in first place and showed little inclination in ceding their lead.
