I would absolutely love to see the current crop beat that record.”Can they do it? I don’t see any reason why not. They are 20 games unbeaten already and confidence is sky high after that 5-1 thrashing of Arsenal.”Going into 2019 seven points ahead of City is a great position to be in. Klopp and the players are saying all the right things about keeping their focus and not getting carried away.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

The next day I was jogging on it a little and from then I knew there was a chance of me being involved [against Liverpool yesterday].”There is still swelling there now but it is solid and I felt good and I trained the day before. I was pretty positive the day before the game that I would be involved.”He added: “You have to block the injury out of your mind and focus on the game.”When I had that chance which I felt I should have scored I rolled my ankle a little bit and it felt fine. It was fine throughout the whole game. It was solid.”Your Champions League debut, you don’t want it to end so soon, but that is football, it happened, and I try to stay positive. “I looked forward to the Liverpool game and set a goal that hopefully I could get ready for that.

Who will be the next college football/NFL stars to make the transition from player to coach?NFL analyst Daniel Jeremiah threw out a name earlier today, and a lot of other analysts seem to be on board.Who does Jeremiah think will make a great head coach?Former Boise State star Kellen Moore.Putting this out here early– Kellen Moore will be a college HC within 3 years.

A Prominent CFB Writer Is Being Sued For His Twitter Account

(Photo by Michael Shroyer/Getty Images)Lawsuits happen in college football, but here is one you never see. A newspaper is suing one of its former employees for ownership of his Twitter account.According to a new report from Richmond.com, the Roanoke Times filed suit against Andy Bitter in U.S. District Court on Tuesday morning. The outcome of the suit will determine whether or not Bitter, a former Virginia Tech reporter for the paper, owns his Twitter account (@AndyBitterVT).Bitter left the Roanoke Times earlier this year to join The Athletic. The suit claims that Bitter was asked to cede control of his account over to the paper, but has refused to do so.Here are some more details:The lawsuit cites the precedent that Bitter had inherited the handle from the previous reporter, Kyle Tucker, and that Bitter signed acknowledgement of the company handbook which stated that the account was company property. At the time Tucker handed the account over to Bitter, the paper was a part of Landmark Media Enterprises. It was sold to BH Media in 2013.According to the lawsuit, the account was created in Aug. 2010 by Tucker, who was with the Virginian-Pilot at the time, and was handed over to Bitter in Oct. 2011. Bitter transitioned to The Roanoke Times after the paper was sold by Landmark to BH Media.This suit sets an interesting precedent, especially with how often reporters change jobs. It will be interesting to see how the ruling impacts future practices between reporters and the outlets that employ them.This is why my handle has never included anything about an employer or anything else. If somebody took me to court, I could quote Marlo Stanfield: My name is my name. https://t.co/AczkSFQL1f— Andy Staples (@Andy_Staples) August 7, 2018Considering Tucker created the account, and later turned it over, it seems the Roanoke Times has a good case.last_img read more

(Photo by Mike Comer/Getty Images)Following Clemson’s decision to start freshman quarterback Trevor Lawrence, Kelly Bryant announced that he’ll transfer from the Tigers.It’s not often that an experienced quarterback of Bryant’s caliber is available, which means several schools could battle for his services. While programs such as Ole Miss and Penn State might have interest in him, there could be one shocking suitor residing in the ACC.Bryant may have lost Clemson’s starting job, but he could find himself preparing for the 2019 season very soon.ESPN mentioned several possible destinations for Bryant in a new story. An ACC rival, Florida State, has been mentioned as one.Where could Kelly Bryant transfer? @DavidHaleESPN runs through the options here. Have heard plenty from the #WooPig fans already. Most interesting: Florida State.(E+): https://t.co/I4OJQwtfnO— Adam Rittenberg (@ESPNRittenberg) September 26, 2018The full details about his potential suitors are behind ESPN’s paywall.Considering the recent struggles that Deondre Francois and the Seminoles are having, adding Bryant would be a tremendous move. After all, he’s already defeated the majority of opponents in the ACC.It hasn’t been easy for Willie Taggart in his first season for Florida State. However, landing a premier transfer in Bryant could certainly reignite his program.Regardless of where he lands, it’s clear that Bryant will have plenty of options for next season.last_img read more
