Tennessee football fans favor Lane Kiffin or Georgia as national champs — in case Vols aren't | Adams

Since the Tennessee Vols aren't a contender for the national championship this football season, I surveyed fans on their next choice. Most of them expressed boredom at the same teams – like Alabama, Clemson and Ohio State – dominating the College Football Playoff. They would prefer an underdog for a champion. And several would prefer the Georgia Bulldogs. Coach Lane Kiffin's Ole Miss Rebels also received support.

Gameday: U.S. Continues Hlinka Gretzky Cup With Matchup vs. Sweden

The U.S. Under-18 Men’s Select Team will look to bounce back in preliminary play against Sweden today at Easton Arena. Puck drop is slated for 9:30 a.m. ET. Team USA is 2-3 (W-L) in its last five meetings with Sweden at the Hlinka Gretzky Cup. The two teams last faced off in the 2019 tournament as Sweden came away with the win during a shootout. 2020 NHL Draft selection Noah Ellis (Urbandale, Iowa) broke the 3-3 tie halfway through the third period of play to give the U.S. the edge, but Sweden put up the equalizer with less than five minutes in regulation. After seven rounds in the shootout, Sweden would come away victorious. Before that, the teams hadn’t faced since a 6-1 U.S. loss in 2017, with Phillipe Lapointe (Burr Ridge, Ill.) picking up the lone goal for the team.

Fantasy football managers now have access to daily news, reports, injury information, and more surrounding each player. As each practice goes by, evaluations and projections for these players are constantly changing. That said, keeping up with mock drafts each week is of utmost importance as to not be blindsided as these players come off the board in real drafts. In mock draft 5.0, I get my first look at how things shake out with the first week of training camp behind each team.
