Tom Izzo hasn’t forgotten how to coach. Let’s stop that right here. Nor is he ready to retire. Or need to retire. Or want to retire. That we are here, having this conversation, is silly. And a sign of the times, I suppose, that the first bad season in more than two decades can spur this talk. True, such chatter remains in the minority of Michigan State's fan base. It's also a fragile fan base, ...

Jalen Johnson is ending his Duke career early. The freshman, named a preseason all-ACC selection back in November, met with coach Mike Krzyzewski and decided to declare for the NBA Draft and no longer play for the Blue Devils this season, the school confirmed Monday night. “I appreciate everything about my time at Duke,” Johnson said in a statement released by Duke. “Coach K, my teammates and ...

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Justin Fields is leaving for the NFL, which reveals a curious oddity that bodes well for Ohio State next season and beyond. Two former Michigan quarterbacks won NFL playoff games on Sunday; Tom Brady with Tampa Bay and Chad Henne with Kansas City. Ohio State’s most successful NFL quarterback was Mike Tomczak.

Much to Mike Krzyzewski’s consternation, the process of putting together this year’s Duke basketball team to help it play at its best is taking far longer than the coach would prefer. The staff had a week between losing 74-67 at Virginia Tech on Jan. 12 and Tuesday night’s loss at Pittsburgh. Poor play early against the Hokies left Duke in a double-digit hole it actually climbed out of before ...
