Manchester United have repeated their desire to get the Premier League season completed. Speculation is mounting that there is a growing feeling among some top flight clubs that the current campaign should be declared null and void due to the coronavirus crisis. But senior figures at Old Trafford insist this is not true - and remain determined the season will reach a conclusion, irrespective of how long it takes.

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Texas Tech kicker Jonathan Garibay is bypassing his final season of eligibility, opting to declare for the NFL draft after making the longest game-winning kick in FBS history and being the most accurate field goal kicker in school history. Garibay kicked a 62-yard field goal on the final play of Tech's 41-38 win over Iowa State on Nov. 13. That was the longest kick for the winning points ever in an Football Bowl Subdivision game with less than a minute remaining. That was the longest field goal in Texas Tech history, and longest for a Big 12 kicker since 1999. That winner was among his school record 13 consecutive made field goals to start this past season. He finished 15-of-16, a 93.8% success rate that led the Big 12. His only miss was when he pushed a 53-yard attempt wide left on the final play of a 27-24 loss at Baylor two weeks after his 62-yarder. Garibay, who redshirted in 2019 season after transferring from Riverside City College in his home state … [Read more...] about Record-setting Texas Tech K Garibay into NFL draft
The behemoth known as AT&T Stadium hosted an average of 93,421 attendees for Dallas Cowboys games this season, by far the highest mark in the NFL. But for Sunday's NFC Wild Card matchup between the Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers, Dallas owner Jerry Jones said he was hoping to push that number closer to 100,000 — a not-unrealistic goal given the eager-to-travel Niners fanbase and AT&T Stadium's insane standing room sections. The standing room sections are exactly that. In exchange for cheaper, usually less sought-after tickets, you get to stay on your feet the whole contest, and you're not going to want to move around much, lest you lose your cherished spot. Which is how you get scenes like the one below, when the AT&T Stadium doors opened and both Cowboys and 49ers fans rushed forth. ?“?
