Maya Moore knows a thing or two about winning. At the University of Connecticut she led the Huskies women's basketball team a 150–4 record and two national championships from 2007–10. She didn't stop there. In her first year in the WNBA, Moore helped the Minnesota Lynx to a WNBA-best 27–7 record, earning the 2011 Rookie of the Year award.
This October, Moore will be extending her winning ways off the court by dishing an assist to the NBA Hoop Troop, a program that seeks to get kids involved in basketball. The Hoop Troop is holding a contest in which one grand-prize winner between the ages of six and 14 will get to take part in a basketball-themed shopping spree with Moore in her hometown of Atlanta. (For more information, visit NBAHoopTroop.com.) Moore clearly has her act together, but can she handle SIKIDS.com's 10 questions? Read on to find out!

Every September, something so huge happens it takes over the entire sports world and dominates headlines for the next four months. No, I’m not talking about the return of the NFL. I’m talking about something WAY more important. I’m talking, of course, about the Professor’s NFL Power Rankings!

FOOTBALL HAS BEGUN!!! YYYYYEEEEHHHHAAAWWWW!!!!! After a crazy weekend in the NFL, both pro and college football are officially rolling full speed ahead and I couldn’t be more pumped. Now that we have football every weekend again, you know what else that means? We get to tailgate!
Is there anything better than cranking up the grill outside and torching hamburgers and hot dogs and (the Professor’s personal favorite) brats? Of course not. The other awesome part about tailgating is all the cool outdoor games you can play with your friends and family. Now you can upgrade your game kits with a bunch of new takes on all the great classics from Sportcraft.
Michigan and Notre Dame have been playing each since the Professor’s great, great, great grandfather was a college football fan. But in all that time, one thing they have never done is play against each other under the lights at the Big House, Michigan’s gigantic home stadium.
That all changes this Saturday, as Notre Dame travels to Ann Arbor to clash with the Wolverines. When you do something that historic, you better be looking your best. Thanks to adidas, both of the teams will be looking slick for their primetime close-ups. Keep reading to see full-sized images of the uniforms for both teams.
