Joel Embiid on rivalry with Andre Drummond: ‘I feel like I own a lot of real estate in his head’

Joel Embiid on rivalry with Andre Drummond: ‘I feel like I own a lot of real estate in his head’

Late in the fourth quarter, Andre Drummond was assessed a second technical foul and was ejected from the game after an incident involving Embiid. The two had been going back and forth at each other all game, both with their play and with their trash talk. After he scored, Drummond sort of tossed out a little chicken wing and Embiid tumbled over backwards to draw the technical foul. Embiid really got Drummond ejected 😬 pic.twitter.com/X7giIAaeHg — Bleacher Report (@BleacherReport) October 24, 2018 After the game, Embiid spoke about the incident, saying that the refs told the two players to knock it off with the cheap shots and trash talk, and the next one would earn a technical foul. "All I was doing was talking and playing basketball and trying to win the game. You can see that he hit me, his hand actually touched my face. But like I said, I feel like I own a lot of real estate in his head." The center also added “I feel like I own a lot of real estate in his head.” pic.twitter.com/M5ciGdzF5w — Keith Pompey (@PompeyOnSixers) October 24, 2018 This is just the latest in what has become a little feud between the two big men. After hearing about the comments, Drummond said he was eager to play Embiid again, but the Sixers big man just responded by talking more trash, saying Drummond "can't shoot." They'll meet again on Nov. 3 in a Saturday afternoon matchup.

OSU football journal: Texas will test Cowboys’ pass protection

OSU football journal: Texas will test Cowboys’ pass protection

Texas comes to Stillwater with one of the best defenses in the Big 12, ranking second in both rushing yards allowed and pass defense efficiency. Finding success through the air will be critical for Oklahoma State against a defense that has intercepted eight passes and allowed only nine throwing touchdowns. It will start with how well the Cowboy offensive line is able to protect quarterback Taylor Cornelius. “There's been other games when we didn't protect well at all,” Gundy said. “We have to be careful about trying to get away from what we do and who we are, and just try to get better at it and minimize those packages. “You've got to be balanced on offense. We have to protect (Cornelius). They're gonna make their plays. We need to be able to make ours.” Texas defensive end Charle Omenihu is second in the Big 12 in sacks with six through seven games, ranking behind OSU's Jordan Brailford with eight.

Cowboys’ visit to D.C. museum should show team they’re much bigger than a blue star

Cowboys’ visit to D.C. museum should show team they’re much bigger than a blue star

The pair met up with their teammates for the rest of the tour of the three-story building where a visitor would need at least one full day, and likely one more, to see all of the artifacts and history on display here. Whatever you think of Garrett as a head coach, which again is under justified criticism after he botched the final minute of his team’s loss on Sunday against the Redskins, encouraging his players to visit places outside of a ball field is one of the reasons he never loses a team. The man’s record is so mediocre it would only make sense if his players check out. Monday’s museum visit was not a political statement, but a field trip for learning. Garrett searches for opportunities for his team to visit places well beyond a football field. Garrett scheduled for his team to have a team dinner on Sunday evening at the National Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. The entire story of Emmett Till; the young man who was tortured and murdered in Mississippi in 1955 because he allegedly whistled at a white woman. Current Cowboys like Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott, and Jaylon Smith can stand where they stand because of Till. Jason Garrett’s idea to have his team visit this museum will have no effect on whether they can return to .500 one week from Sunday against Tennessee.

Former Dodgers teammates Dave Roberts and Alex Cora will go head to head as managers in the World Series

Former Dodgers teammates Dave Roberts and Alex Cora will go head to head as managers in the World Series

The Dodgers had just moved into first place in the National League West for good, in a month they had won 21 of 28 games. "I don't know that there were many days that were much tougher than that one," said Jim Tracy, then the Dodgers' manager, "because of the emotions that were exploding in the clubhouse." In a 48-hour whirlwind before the July 31 trade deadline, general manager Paul DePodesta had made four deals. Roberts and Cora had been teammates for three years. "Hey, man, you're going to a great city," Cora told Roberts. But it was that turmoil in the Dodgers clubhouse that helped shape both men into managers, to learn about how to handle the clubhouse when the front office demotes or dumps a player and leaves it to the manager to clean up the emotional aftermath. On Tuesday, when the Dodgers and Red Sox open the World Series at Fenway Park, the former Dodgers teammates will manage against one another. "They were good players, but they were better people." In 2009, the first year after he retired as a player, he worked for the Red Sox as a television analyst. Cora and Roberts each is in his first managerial job — Cora in his first year, Roberts in his third.

OU football analysis: ‘Complete restart’ on defense brings optimism as Sooners tackle regular season’s second half

It was a heck of a good two weeks,” Riley said. Finding comfort level Interim defensive coordinator Ruffin McNeill explained how he doesn’t force things on the defense. Nothing is added to the game plan after noon on Wednesday. And then, as the coach goes over the call sheet with his players, he makes sure they feel comfortable with it. And if that takes us down to playing a base defense, so be it, because I want them to feel comfortable. I thought it was a good foundation, and now we’re just trying to build the house. I know it’s the middle of the season, but we started over.” Riley, when talking about TCU, brought up one outstanding player. There’s no doubt Riley felt that way when Turpin took a first-quarter kickoff 99 yards for a touchdown. Oklahoma ended with 323 rushing yards, powered by Kennedy Brooks (168 yards) and Sermon (110). What happens if Sermon cannot play on Saturday?
