Earlier this week, we brought you a profile of Paul Rabil, the biggest star in lacrosse. Rabil is a beast of the outdoor game, and his accomplishments on the field are a big part of the story. But an equally important part of his career is that he plays the indoor game, too.
As a member of the Philadelphia Wings of the National Lacrosse League, Rabil is one of only a handful of lacrosse players who play in both the indoor NLL and outdoor Major League Lacrosse. (He plays for the Boston Cannons of the MLL.) There are differences between the two types of lacrosse — the arena game has a smaller playing area, the action is five-on-five, and the goalies are bigger and the nets smaller. But playing the indoor game has had a real impact on Rabil's outdoor success.
In week two of the college football season, all the top-10 teams won their games and the best players continued to dominate. But the team that could have the most to worry about going forward is Ohio State. If quarterback Braxton Miller’s knee injury keeps him out for an extended amount of time, the Buckeyes could be the first top-5 team to be put on upset alert.
Georgia got back in the top 10 after beating South Carolina, knocking the Gamecocks out of the top 10 in the process.
The big game this week is Alabama and Texas A&M. Everyone will be watching Saturday and it could cause quite a bit of movement in the rankings, so make sure you tune in.
While most of the sports world was focused on the start of football season (and that includes us), three NHL teams unveiled new looks for the 2013-14 season. The Buffalo Sabres, Minnesota Wild, and San Jose Sharks all revealed jersey updates over the past few weeks.
Let's get caught up, shall we?
The first week of the NFL season didn’t have many surprises. Denver and San Francisco looked especially great, as quarterbacks Peyton Manning and Colin Kaepernick had fantastic performances.
Most of the movement in our power rankings took place at the bottom. Philadelphia moved up four spots after debuting its new warp speed offense, and Pittsburgh and Tampa Bay fell after disappointing losses.
