The Premier League produced some spectacular action this weekend, with 28 goals across 10 games. But the best game of the weekend — the marquee clash between Liverpool and Manchester City — was most notable for the times the ball didn’t hit the back of the net.
Both teams had a ton of great chances, but only scored once apiece, and both will consider the result to be two points dropped. Between that result and Arsenal’s poor performance at The Hawthorns on Saturday, the big winners of the weekend were Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United. Spurs look solidified in their top-four position, while United are now just four points away from getting back into a Champions League place — and they have two games in hand on Liverpool.
The defining characteristic of this game ended up being missed chances. Each team had 13 shots, which isn’t a huge number, but none of them was a hopeful effort. There was only one shot from outside the box, and it was taken centrally from inside 25 yards. This should have been a seven- or eight-goal game, not a two-goal game.Zlatan Ibrahimovic was suspended for United’s trip to Middlesbrough, while Paul Pogba missed out due to a minor injury. It didn’t matter, because United’s backups stepped up in their absence — particularly Marouane Fellaini and Jesse Lingard. Here’s how Lingard solidified the Red Devils’ lead with what was ultimately the winner.
South Carolina, for its part, has dumped 90 points on UNC Asheville and Kentucky in the last month and last lost at Missouri on Feb. 19. Outside Mizzou, the Gamecocks have only lost to Duke, UConn, and Tennessee, and they have little to fear going into their Sunday matchup against Arizona State.
You see that glorious picture at the top of this article? That¡¯s a photo of Bryant ¡°Big Country¡± Reeves playing basketball in a dope Vancouver Grizzlies jersey in the late 1990s.
If you¡¯re not familiar, Big Country is the best thing to ever come out of the OSU men¡¯s basketball program. He led the team to the Final Four in 1995, then played for the Grizzlies for his entire career until 2001. He now lives on a ranch in Oklahoma, probably wears a big-ass cowboy hat, and generally does what you do when your name is Big Country and you made a boat load of money in the NBA: Whatever the hell you want.

If you¡¯re an OSU/avid college basketball fan, you already know this, but in case you don¡¯t: Trey ¡°Slightly Less Big Country¡± Reeves walked onto the Oklahoma State team this year as a freshman. You might see him right now, sitting on the bench while OSU plays Michigan in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
He¡¯s hard to miss, check this kid out:
Slightly Less Big Country is shorter than his dad, and he isn¡¯t the star his father was (at least not yet). But this family tree is a good reminder that a) we¡¯re all old as shit now, because Big Country has a son who¡¯s old enough to play college basketball, b) legends never die, they just have kids, and c) it pays to be a legacy at an institution.
And now, for good measure, he¡¯s a picture of Big Country dunking a basketball:

For the first time in Tony Romo’s 14-year NFL career, he’ll start the season with a team other than the Dallas Cowboys. They’ll release the veteran quarterback on Thursday, setting up the next chapter in Romo’s career and the biggest storyline of the offseason.
After signing with a team as an undrafted free agent after the 2003 NFL draft, Romo faced the possibility that he wouldn’t make the roster in his first couple seasons, but by 2005 he secured the backup job in Dallas. By October 2006 he was the starter.
Simply put, it’s time for Arsenal to thank Arsène Wenger for everything he’s done for the Gunners over the last 20 seasons — and find a new manager. For the good of the club, that’s looking more and more like the only practical option. They need to make significant changes in the club’s structure, both in terms of the team, tactical setup, and even player recruitment, and there are too many questions as to whether or not Wenger is the man to make those changes, especially in light of recent results on the pitch.
It’s time for the next era of Arsenal football. An era without Arsène Wenger. He’s had a hell of a career and deserves all the praise in the world, but the time has come to move on and find out what happens next.
Again, Wenger is a tremendously accomplished manager who has earned a world of respect during his career. He is rightfully considered to be a legend at Arsenal, and deserves all benefit of the doubt that goes along with that status. But eventually results and actions move past the level that such benefit can look past, and it feels like we’ve reached that point.

Andrew Gachkar Jersey Not surprisingly, Levine Toilolo, the TE forced into playing RT, got smoked on that Matt Ryan sack.
That’s Levine Toilolo, the Stanford product, getting beaten badly off the edge. He’s not even their blocking TE — that’d be Bear Pascoe — and he looked lost. He’s understandably unsure as to how to get into the right stance, and just wasn’t ready to face a starting-caliber defensive end who had size, technique and experience on him.
1) Mike Glennon is the answer. OK, he’s an answer, a potential answer, a potential short-term answer at the very least. The ginger giraffe made the start this week in place of an injured Josh McCown, and he was a big reason the Bucs played so much better than they have all season. Glennon completed 21 of his 42 passes for 302 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. His numbers weren’t great, but he did a much better job throwing the ball and taking advantage of Mike Evans. Having Doug Martin back on the field certainly didn’t hurt Glennon or the Bucs this week.
2) Who are the Steelers? They looked like a team that found its stride in a Sunday night hammering of the Carolina Panthers last week, after getting blown out by the Ravens the week before and sneaking by the Browns in the season opener. Pittsburgh outproduced the Bucs on the ground and through the air. The Steelers also outdid their opponents with sloppy play. They had 13 penalties, including a costly one on third down late in the fourth quarter that gave the Bucs new life on the Steelers’ 35-yard line. The defense bailed them out on that drive, keeping Tampa Bay out of the end zone. It was special teams’ turn to screw up next, punting to midfield and leaving the Bucs with just 46 yards to go on the game-winning drive.
3) Le’Veon Bell is Pittsburgh’s MVP. It’s now four weeks in a row that Bell has totaled more than 100 yards. He ran for 63 on 19 carries and caught six passes for 46 yards. Tampa’s defense limited his effectiveness on the ground, though, to just 3.3 yards per carry.
The New York Giants have plenty to worry about this offseason, but the club doesn’t have to worry about wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. right now.
On paper, the New York Giants have as much a chance to win Super Bowl LII as does any other team in the NFC. Just like the Giants, the Atlanta Falcons—the reigning conference champions—finished the regular season with a record of 11-5. The Dallas Cowboys won the NFC East, but Big Blue swept their hated division rivals in 2016. Neither the Green Bay Packers nor the Seattle Seahawks are better than the Giants as February comes to an end.
With that said, the Giants must think ahead and about the future while at the same time attempting to establish a roster capable of winning a Super Bowl title less than 12 months from today. The first player who may come to the minds of fans and analysts regarding such discussions is dynamic New York wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.
Beckham’s numbers and offensive production speak to what he has meant to the Giants since the club acquired him in the 2014 NFL Draft. The 24-year-old set records during his three seasons in the NFL, and he rapidly became a superstar known for completing one-handed catches and for featuring in national advertising campaigns. It’s not a stretch to suggest Beckham is the public face of the Giants as of the second month of 2017.
Also announced was the Giants’ punishment for using walkie talkies during a December win over Dallas: New York’s fourth-round pick falls 10 spots, from 130 to 140. The Giants already were fined $150,000 and coach Ben McAdoo $50,000.
The good news for Patriots fans is that the team gained a fifth-round compensatory pick, No. 185 overall, plus a third-rounder from the Browns (No. 103) as part of the Jamie Collins trade. Oh, and your team is Super Bowl champ and stuff.
