Mailbag: FSU's red flags, Brian Kelly's Notre Dame future, Georgia, more

Editor's note: To submit Mailbag questions, email Stewart.Mandel@fox.com. *** Let me just start by saying I am NOT a baseball fan. I was a huge one growing up, and I will always have a soft spot in my heart for the 1990 World champion Cincinnati Reds, but I lost interest sometime in early adulthood. Suddenly spending three hours watching grown men in pajamas walk in and out of the...

76ers can match futile start of infamous 1972-73 squad

The Philadelphia 76ers are 0-14. This is historically horrible for a franchise that has already defined the mark for awful. The 76ers have a ways to go to catch their 1972-73 namesakes. That team went 9-73 -- the worst mark for an 82-game season -- in the NBA. If this edition of the 76ers loses to the 5-9 Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday they will match the futile start of the 9-73 team...

Steve is moving up to the TV booth when NBC returns to NASCAR beginning next year.  I think the challenge is going to be on Greg. Let's face it, he has some pretty...

Predators start strong with new coach, players

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Pinning down a single reason for the Nashville Predators' resurgence this season is nearly impossible. There's a new coach in Peter Laviolette bringing his offensive approach. New scorers in James Neal and Mike Ribeiro. And Pekka Rinne is health and back to dominating form as one of the NHL's stingiest goaltenders. Add in the league's top rookie through the...
