College football analyst Paul Finebaum usually jumps for joy when a non-SEC team with national title hopes loses a big game. But Ohio State’s loss to Oregon on Saturday has prompted a different reaction from him.

Appearing on SportsCenter, Finebaum called it “hard to explain” what happened to Ohio State in the game. He credited Oregon head coach Mario Cristobal and offensive coordinator Joe Moorhead with creating a brilliant gameplan.

As for Ohio State, he noted that their defense couldn’t get a stop and their offense couldn’t get enough going. Finebaum believes that Ohio State’s road to the College Football Playoff is now “very complicated.”

“It’s hard to explain what happened yesterday at The Horseshoe,” Finebaum said. “Especially when you consider that Oregon, coming into the game, without its two best players and maybe the best player in college football (in

They’ve done everything but the one thing that has to be done to fix USC football. They’ve swapped out nearly every assistant coach, bolstered the recruiting staff and hired away young people who create impressive videos that are meant to make something that isn’t very cool right now look way cooler on social media.

The natural pop culture reference is that USC athletic director Mike Bohn has spent much of his short tenure rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic, but, days before the Trojans’ latest inexplicable embarrassment — a 42-28 loss to Stanford on Saturday night at the Coliseum — another apt Hollywood comparison for the Clay Helton era at USC casually surfaced.

The New York Yankees put their fans through the ringer this weekend. What looked like a historic win for the franchise turned into an absolutely crushing loss to their hated rival, the Boston Red Sox.

In the final game of a four-game series at Fenway Park, Yankees starting pitcher Domingo German looked absolutely incredible to start. Through seven innings, he allowed just two base runners, one on a walk in the third, and another reached safely on a passed ball after striking out in the seventh.

German was in striking distance of the second no-hitter of the year for the franchise, and the first Yankees no-hitter against the Red Sox since Dave Righetti in 1983. New York finds itself well back of Boston in the AL East race this year, but a win like that seemed like a possible turning point for the team
