No. 6 Stanford stunned No. 2 Oregon on Thursday, but should a team that has lost to lowly Utah be considered for the BCS Championship Game?

If Alabama, Florida State, Ohio State and Baylor finish undefeated, wouldn't it be great for fans to watch a four-team playoff?

When the Warriors move to San Francisco, the A's to San Jose and the Raiders to Los Angeles, will there be any reason to go to Oakland?

If someone has been called racist names, physically threatened and bullied in the workplace, how could there possibly be any justification?

If this behavior was not only condoned but encouraged (perhaps even ordered) by those in authority, would they still be employed?

In his new book, "Undisputed Truth," former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson reveals that he was and continues to be a deeply troubled man; is anyone surprised?

Kings center DeMarcus Cousins wants to be thought of as one of the best centers in the NBA, so why didn't he dominate in losses to the Warriors and Hawks?

Everyone agrees James Harden is one of the best players in the NBA, but if he scores 35 points and the Rockets lose at home, who cares how good he is?

Speaking of caring, if Tigers Woods wasn't playing this weekend, would anyone bother to watch the Turkish Open?

The Kansas City Chiefs (9-0) are the surprise story in the NFL this season, but does anyone give them any chance of beating the Broncos in Denver next weekend?
