WATER COOLER TALK
🤸♀️ USA Gymnastics and the US Olympic & Paralympic Committee agreed to a $380 million settlement with the survivors of Larry Nassir, a former Olympic team doctor.
“This chapter is finally closed. Now the hard work of reform and rebuilding can begin. Whether or not change is made depends on what happens next,” said Rachael Denhollander, the first woman to publicly accuse Nassir.
🏈 Spencer Rattler, ex-Oklahoma quarterback and preseason Heisman favorite, decided to transfer to USC... that is, the University of South Carolina.
South Carolina's head coach Shane Beamer is a former assistant coach at OU where he got to know Rattler.
How it works: The teams play each other in a home and away series, meaning games take place in both stadiums. The on aggregate winner advances to the quarterfinals with away goals being the deciding factor in a tie.
The first round of games kicks off on February 15th.
Sprint's take: It's hilarious UEFA blamed an outside consultancy for its mistake considering the matchups are chosen by reaching into a bucket and pulling out two random balls. The PSG / Real Madrid matchup will be electric.
Giphy / Cooper Cupp
(9-4) LA Rams30vs. (10-3) Arizona Cardinals 23
Despite recovering a last-minute onside kick, the Cardinals failed to score the tying touchdown thanks to bad clock management and Aaron Donald.
Rams receiver Cooper Cupp (13 rec, 123 yards, 1 TD) leads the NFL in receptions, receiving yards, and touchdowns.
The last player to earn the receiver triple crown? Carolina’s Steve Smith back in 2005.
(14-14) Boston Celtics 117 vs. (18-11) Milwaukee Bucks 103
Jayson Tatum (42 pts, 5 reb) dominated for Boston, scoring 16 in the 4th quarter to pull away from the Bucks.
The Bucks have bigger issues than the loss. All-star Khris Middleton hyperextended his knee. He'll go through more tests to figure out the severity of the injury.
