    Fall will feel empty. The Big Ten and Pac-12 each announced Tuesday that all fall sports — including football — have been postponed until at least 2021, becoming the first Power Five leagues to make the drastic and potentially financially crippling decision, which could trigger all programs to shutter until at least the spring, when the Big Ten and Pac-12 will attempt to bring football back.

    Kevin Warren had officially been commissioner of the Big Ten Conference for less than three months when he climbed onto a podium in the press area at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis. It was just about noon on March 11. He did not break any news when he began to speak into the microphone; everyone assembled already was aware the Big Ten Tournament had been canceled. We all knew what was coming, again, when he appeared Tuesday afternoon on Big Ten Network. Word the league was postponing its fall sports season — perhaps to the spring, perhaps to never — had leaked out all over Twitter during the half-hour before he was interviewed by host Dave Revsine.

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — For days if not weeks, the question question on the table has been: Will there be college football at the University of Minnesota this year? On Tuesday, the Big Ten Conference announced its decision and, as expected, football is off the table this fall, as reported by CBS Sports. With this decision, the Big Ten has become the first Power Five conference to decide not to play this fall amid the COVID-19 pandemic. A sports management professor told WCCO Big Ten schools could lose more than $60 million in revenue by not playing. According to the U of M, Gopher football generated more than $9 million in ticket sales alone last year. A lot of college players...
    Getty Mark Andrews makes a catch against the Jets. The Baltimore Ravens have one of the best young rosters in the NFL, and a big reason why this is the case has plenty to do with their young tight end Mark Andrews. After a great first few seasons in the league, Andrews has begun to take on the look of an elite player. Even while that might be the case, it’s clear he still wants to improve to become the best of the best at his position in the league. Speaking with reporters, Andrews was asked about where he sees himself in 2020 and beyond, and as he said, it’s more about personal improvement and team goals than...
    Getty Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery has cut his body fat by a third this offseason David Montgomery has been putting in work this offseason, with impressive results. The second-year running back for the Chicago Bears has been working on his footwork with Rashad Whitfield — AKA the Footwork King — this offseason, and now that weights and measurements have been taken, it looks like we could be seeing a slightly more shifty, stronger rusher when Montgomery takes the field this season. Montgomery weighed in at 222 pounds upon entering training camp this year, and he now has just 8 percent body fat. Last year, as a rookie entering the league, Montgomery weighed 223 pounds and had 12...

    OLIVIER GIROUD notched his sixth goal of the season as Chelsea edged past already-relegated Norwich City in a nervy affair at Stamford Bridge. The header in first-half stoppage time saw the Blues take a leap towards securing Champions League football for next season, thus further underlining the Frenchman's effectiveness. 2 Frank Lampard had all-but jettisoned the 33-year-old earlier in the season, with Giroud not even making the bench in the Premier League between December 4 and February 17. But following a failed January switch to Inter Milan, and top-scorer Tammy Abraham's injury-woes, Giroud was given a first-team reprieve. Having made just five appearances prior to Christmas, Giroud has now featured in all 11 Premier League matches since his February return...
    The Giants aren’t budging. Catcher Joey Bart is the team’s future, but they’re saying that the future is not now. Despite Buster Posey’s opting out of the season, despite the fact that the top two names on the Giants’ catcher depth chart are non-roster invitees, despite the fact that Bart looks like a big-league player to big-league players, the message remains the same as the 2020 campaign approaches: “More development will certainly serve Joey well,” Giants manager Gabe Kapler said. I think that’s the wrong call. The Giants owe it to both their top prospect and their fans to see what the kid — who is 23, by the way — can do in San Francisco this year. Related Articles...
    Things have been remarkably ordinary as the St. Louis Cardinals conduct spring training 2.0. At least, as ordinary as they can be during such extraordinary times. Their core players have continued to test negative for COVID-19 ahead of next week’s opener of the abbreviated season. They haven’t had any injuries pop up that could dramatically alter their plans for the starting rotation or lineup. And the few questions they did have during the spring, such as how they would cast their deep platoon of outfielders and how they would stack their bullpen, have been largely answered. “We feel like we’re in a place where the work’s been very solid and very efficient,” manager Mike Shildt said. “The credit goes to...
    KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Royals manager Mike Matheny had just watched Salvador Perez and backup Cam Gallagher test positive for COVID-19, sending the only backstops on his 40-man roster into quarantine with just a couple of weeks before the start of the season. The question posed to Matheny was a natural one: So, what do you think about being a player-manager? “I think I could catch one out of one inning,” the longtime big league catcher replied, “and then I would need some help.” The image of the 49-year-old Matheny back behind the plate is pushing the idea of flexibility to an extreme. But the Royals do hope their youth gives them a unique ability to adapt to the...

    ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Albert Pujols’ 20th season in the majors is about to begin with the Los Angeles Angels. When it does, the 40-year-old slugger is likely to be the oldest player in the big leagues. Although time has chipped away at Pujols’ mountainous talent, he has never believed his advancing age will prevent him from putting up more big numbers on the diamond. His recent years of diminishing overall production have been counterbalanced by still-steady power numbers, and they have done nothing to hurt his confidence — particularly as he heads into this short season with big plans. After struggling through injuries that slowed him earlier in his 10-year contract with the Angels, the three-time MVP is feeling...
    By Michael Hurley, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — Colleges around the country have no earthly idea how they are supposed to house students next month.
