Kansas looking to get skill position players more involved
No one expected this from the Kansas offense, at least to start the year. Sure, there were some who suspected a lower output could be the case after the Jayhawks graduated their 12-game starting quarterback and lost all of their snaps at the tackle spots, but three games into the year — one of which was against Coastal Carolina — the Jayhawks rank dead last in the Big 12 in most offensive categories — including yards and points per game.

Brandon Jacobs rips Jim Harbaugh: 'He didn't know what he was doing' with 49ers - CBSSports.com
"You know what? I have a lot of respect for Jim when I was there, before I got to know him. I enjoyed my time there, but we didn't see eye-to-eye. I knew a little bit more about football than they let on to," Jacobs said. "To be honest, that's how I was taught. To go somewhere where they didn't have route conversions was just absurd. They're just running routes against the defense, getting people killed. Size and strength is what they had and it's why they won.

Steph Curry: Talking about lack of parity disrespectful to Warriors, Cavs - CBSSports.com
"That almost is kind of disrespectful, because it's not like it's easy for us to get here. It wasn't that at all. Us and Cleveland worked our butts off all year to put ourselves in a position to be playing for a championship. The league is as strong talent wise across the board as it's ever been. Every night we get challenged. Obviously we had that one stat I guess, point differential, all year. We had a pretty solid showing in that respect. But, every night was hard. Every night was challenging.

Hal Steinbrenner apologizes to New York Yankees fans for early playoff exit
"I'm very disappointed, obviously,'' Steinbrenner said Tuesday on ESPN New York radio. "We invested a lot of time, energy, money into the team last offseason, and we all felt that we had a team that could win a championship, and we failed to do that. We didn't even come close. So right now, at this point in time, all I can do is apologize to our fans. They deserved a better outcome than they got. Period. I mean, they just did.''

Gifted programs worsen inequality. Here's what happens when schools try to get rid of them.
More than 30 years ago, Rockville Centre began a gradual but determined effort to do away with gifted classes in its elementary schools as well as many of the tracked classes at the middle and high schools. The goal wasn’t to eliminate all tracking, South Side Principal John Murphy said. Upperclassmen can still choose to take more challenging math, science and foreign language classes. It was, instead, to avoid creating a caste system by assigning students to remedial, average or advanced classes before they’d had a chance to develop their academic potential.
