4-star guard Issac McBride commits to KU basketball

The reason why the NCAA couldn't move on Billy Preston
That reason? The play-or-not-to-play status of star freshman Billy Preston, the No. 20 overall player in the 2017 247Sports Composite. Preston missed the Kansas opener for disciplinary reasons. And then, just slightly before the Jayhawks were set to tip with Kentucky at the Champions Classic, it was revealed that the school was sitting Preston to look into the specifics of a car accident that involved the forward. Preston never suited up in an official game for the Jayhawks, with the NCAA getting pounded by both Bill Self and key media members for not coming to a decision regarding Preston’s eligibility.

It might be time to talk about the Steelers moving on from Mike Tomlin - Behind the Steel Curtain
I know Steelers Nation is one of the most reactionary fan bases in the NFL. They call for the firing of coaches after one game and seemingly draw conclusions on the fly which are simply not viable. That’s why, as a writer covering the Steelers, I’ve tried to not overreact to one bad game. Instead, I react to trends and what I see after the game. Careful examination of the games as a whole reveals so much more than off-the-wall, reaction-based comments.

Kenan Thompson tells Seth Meyers about skipping out on Kanye West's SNL "circus" on Late Night
Kenan Thompson joined old SNL pal Seth Meyers on Monday’s Late Night, with the two Saturday Night Live veterans swapping the requisite stories from the live comedy trenches. Meyers, who’s hosting SNL for the first time on October 13, praised Thompson’s recent Emmy nomination for his unprecedented 16th year on the show, while the pair took solace in the fact that at least Thompson lost the supporting actor award to Henry Winkler, who Thompson referred to as “a sweet little old Jewish gumdrop.” Plus, he noted, Winkler had waited 42 years since his last nomination, and if anyone can understand waiting a long time for recognition, it’s Thompson. And while he suffered the added bummer of not being in much of the premiere episode (“I enjoyed watching it,” joked Thompson), Kenan did win an Emmy for Best Original Music And Lyrics, along with SNL co-star Chris Redd and Chance The Rapper, for their Jodeci-inspired paean to America’s lost love, “Come Back Barack.”
