College football rankings: Top 10 returning quarterbacks by QBR for 2023 season
Continuing our college football quarterback rankings series as we approach the 2023 season, let's take a look at QBR and which returning signal-callers excel across all play types at the position. QBR, otherwise known as "Adjusted Total Quarterback Rating," values the quarterback on all play types on a 0-100 scale adjusted for the strength of opposing defenses faced.

Rival coaches share thoughts on the top college basketball transfers to move up to Power 6 conferences
Florida Atlantic carried the Conference USA banner all the way to the Final Four, but it was far from the only CUSA program to make some postseason noise. North Texas and UAB bulldozed the rest of the competition and met in the NIT Championship game. Charlotte knocked off Eastern Kentucky for the CBI title. March was a banner month for the league. After the season, Florida Atlantic somehow kept its team away from the blood-thirsty, high-major poachers. The rest of the CUSA was not so lucky.

Star Wars Shows How Palpatine Turned Jedi Into Inquisitors During The Clone Wars
Delilah S. Dawson's upcoming book Rise of the Red Blade serves as something of an origin story for two members of the Inquisitorius, focusing in on a woman named Iskat Ikaris. Previous excerpts revealed this Inquisitor served at the Battle of Geonosis at the beginning of the Clone Wars, but the latest excerpt - published on EW - takes place a few months later. It features a chilling conversation between Iskat Akaris and Chancellor Palpatine himself, with the chancellor taking advantage of a few brief moments to cultivate Iskat's confidence and nudge her toward the dark side. The pattern is strikingly familiar - the exact same approach Darth Sidious took with Anakin Skywalker.

McDonald’s Grimace Shake is a social media challenge done right
Scrolling through your TikTok or Instagram feed, you’ve probably come across the now-familiar sight of a young person face down in the dirt with a purple, viscous liquid oozing from a McDonald’s cup next to them. While we all live with the knowledge that, one day, social media might serve us gruesome footage of animal torture or a mass shooting, there’s no need to worry here.
