NFL News

In the NFL, there were plenty of coaches who got the axe. In total, there will be 8 new head coaches, as the Packers and the Browns will also be searching for their permanent head coaches. Among those fired include:

Todd Bowles of the New York Jets

Vance Joseph of the Denver Broncos

Dirk Koetter of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Adam Gase of the Miami Dolphins

Steve Wilks of the Arizona Cardinals

Marvin Lewis of the Cincinnati Bengals

The Atlanta Falcons also fired three coaches, none of which were head coach Dan Quinn. The Falcons fired offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian, defensive coordinator Marquand Manuel, and special teams coach Keith Armstrong.

We will see plenty of fresh faces in the NFL next season and fans of aforementioned teams cannot wait to see if the coaching change will help to turn their team’s fortunes around. Only time will tell though.

We at Sports, Inc. hope your 2018 was great and we wish you the best in 2019 as you continue to support us on this journey.

Jon Jones defeats Alexander Gustafsson by TKO with 2:02 left in the 3rd round to reclaim his spot as the UFC Light Heavyweight Champion of the World.

NCAA Football: Bowl Mania continues

In the Belk Bowl, the University of Virginia shuts out the South Carolina Gamecocks 28-0.

The NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl went into overtime, but the Nevada Wolfpack emerged victorious over the Arkansas State Red Wolves 16-13.

The Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl was a No Contest for the Florida Gators as they rolled past the Michigan Wolverines 41-15.

In the first semifinal game of the College Football Playoff, #2 Clemson faced off against #3 Notre Dame. The Fighting Irish didn’t seem to put up too much of a fight as they were held to only 3 points the entire game. Clemson wins the ballgame 30-3 and will move on to the National Championship on January 7th.

In the later matchup of the CFP semifinals, heisman trophy winner Kyler Murray and the #4 Oklahoma Sooners took on the heisman runner-up Tua Tagovailoa and the #1 Alabama Crimson Tide. Alabama quickly jumped out to a 21-0 lead after 1 quarter of play, but Murray and the Sooners were not done yet. Oklahoma managed to put 10 points on the board to end the half at 31-10. Oklahoma came out guns blazing in the second half as they outscored Alabama 24-14 in the second half. The late surge by Oklahoma proved to be too little too late though as the Sooners fall to the Crimson Tide 45-34. Alabama will face Clemson in the National Title game.

Alabama and Clemson are very familiar with one another as this will be the fourth time they will face off in the CFP. In 2015, Alabama beat Clemson 45-40 in the national championship game. In 2016, Deshaun Watson and the Tigers came seeking revenge, and revenge they got as they beat the Crimson TIde in the closing seconds of the championship game, 35-31. In 2017, the two teams met in the CFP semifinal game and the Alabama got the best of Clemson, 24-6. Now, in 2018, we will be treated to Round 4 of Bama-Clemson, with a national title on the line and we as college football fans can only hope this game will be half as exciting as the last three matchups.

As we close out 2018, we hope to bring you more interesting and captivating stories as we continue this journey into 2019.
