- September 02, 2018

Chiefs general manager Brett Veach was glad to see Mack leaving the AFC West. He just turned 27 years old. But the big prize, Mack, is now headed to Chicago. Well, it has to be spent somewhere.

I know Northwestern State is a Football Championship Subdivision opponent and one should only read too much into the first game of the season anyways, but Mond's early efforts are definitely worth noting. The Aggies get Clemson in week two, then No. 1 Alabama in week four. "They both earned that opportunity", he said. "What I don't want to change is Northwestern State being the best it can be".

- September 02, 2018

Kyrgios was already scrapping to stay in the match when Federer produced a moment of magic. "Definitely a bit of luck and good feet", said Federer, adding it wasn't a shot he expected to make. Federer, perhaps riled by that earlier imitation, was in no mood to let up and raced into a 5-0 lead before comfortably finishing off the set. Kyrgios had come out firing, but once Federer had saved four break points in the seventh game of the opening set the Australian was at a loss. (more...)
