Court Vision: Kentucky delivers on No. 1 ranking, thumps No. 5 Kansas

Going inside the Kentucky Wildcats' 72-40 win over the Kansas Jayhawks on Tuesday night. THREE-POINT TAKE 1. How long will the platoon system last? When Kentucky fans on one side of the court yell "blue" then the other side yells "white" they aren't showing their support for the Wildcats. They're asking coach John Calipari to make substitutions. OK...

Court Vision: Hawks stumble against struggling Lakers

Going inside the Atlanta Hawks' 114-109 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday night: THREE-POINT TAKE 1. At the hands of a dysfunctional Lakers team, the Hawks suffered their worst loss of the season, bar none. Losses to the Raptors, Spurs and Cavaliers were understandable.

Here are three reasonably quick takes from No. 4 Duke's 81-71 victory over No. 19 Michigan State -- the opening act of Tuesday's Champions Classic doubleheader from Indianapolis: 1.

Bird is the Word Podcast: Falcons' playoff push now seems real

The bad news is that the Atlanta Falcons are 4-6. The good news: 4-6 is good enough to be in first place in the NFC South. Let that sink in for a moment. At 4-6 with six games left in the regular season, the Falcons are the front-runners for the NFC South's playoff spot. Or are they? The Falcons are tied with the New Orleans Saints at 4-6. But since Atlanta won its Week 1 game...

ACC Power Rankings: FSU holds at the top but shakeups abound

For the first time this year, there is no clear-cut answer to the ACC's No. 2 team. But that's necessarily a bad thing. Florida State remains No. 1, but there is a lot of depth at spots 2-6 ... and it's good depth, something the league hasn't had in a long time. 1.

Bird is the Word Podcast: In depth with Falcons' foes, the Panthers

When the Carolina Panthers joined the league in 1995, they were placed in the same division as the Atlanta Falcons for a reason; to create a geographic rivalry. The I-85 Rivalry was born. Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte and the Georgia Dome in Atlanta are separated by a mere 242 miles. But there's a lot of hate in those miles. The NFL got exactly what it wanted by ensuring...
