Oklahoma took the Big 12 title and likely a spot in the College Football Playoff - and did at the expense of rival Oklahoma State in a Bedlam blowout. Baker Mayfield threw two touchdown passes and ran for another score and the No. 5 Sooners beat the No. 9 Cowboys 58-23 on Saturday night. ''There's a lot of tension in the air,'' Oklahoma cornerback Jordan Thomas, who intercepted two passes and returned one for a touchdown, said.

Stephen Curry scored 19 points in Golden State's NBA-record 18th straight win at the start of a season, but what he didn't do against the Sacramento Kings was just as important to the defending champion Warriors. ''I'm sure Steph doesn't like it,'' Warriors interim head coach Luke Walton said. Curry, who scored 17 pf his points in the first quarter, said he understood it made sense for him to sit out the entire fourth period of the blowout with the Warriors about to embark on a two-week, seven-game road trip.

Colorado governor urges toned-down abortion debate after clinic rampageLSU says Les Miles to stay; Tigers beat Texas A&M 19-7 (Yahoo Sports)

A view of the damage to the entrance of the Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado SpringsBy Keith Coffman COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (Reuters) - The attack at a Colorado Planned Parenthood clinic that killed a police officer and two other people suggests that both sides of the abortion debate in the United States need to "tone down the rhetoric," the state's governor said on Sunday. The governor, John Hickenlooper, spoke the morning after unnamed law enforcement authorities told NBC News and other media that the suspected gunman had muttered "no more baby parts" when he was arrested after an hours-long standoff at the Colorado Springs clinic. Planned Parenthood provides a range of health services for men and women, including abortion.

Les Miles rode across the Tiger Stadium field on the shoulders of his players while fans chanted his name. It would have been quite a send-off, except LSU's administration doesn't want him going anywhere after all. Minutes after LSU closed the regular season with a 19-7 victory over Texas A&M, athletic director Joe Alleva said Miles will remain the coach.

Ohio State crushed its rival and cruised home, crossing the border and hoping for the best. The eighth-ranked Buckeyes had beaten No. 12 Michigan 42-13. Michigan State may have ended the national champions' quest to repeat by beating the Nittany Lions 55-16 and earning a spot in next week's title game against Iowa.

Unfair Questions or Democracy At Work ?

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” -- The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

Why U.S. Engagement Policy Is The Correct One

Invariably, when one thinks of the efficacy of a nation’s military, the mind’s eye is drawn to the ability of that country to deliver a \"warhead onto the forehead\" of their enemies. Indeed, owing to the Pentagon’s slick packaging of the First Gulf War, modern conflict, in the American mind, became synonymous with high-tech toys, grainy videos of successful missile shots, and a quick resolution of hostilities.

Capitalism and The Wealth Gap

When it comes to the efficient delivery of goods and services, capitalism is the proven economic model that puts people to work and products on the shelves. Whether those jobs end up paying enough money to purchase the items on those shelves is another matter, however.

Living Wages Are A Global Problem

The recent protests for an increased minimum wage are part of a larger global protest. The purpose is the same for low wage earners all over the world; increase wages to match the cost of living, and allow workers to form unions if desired and needed. The global protest has gained media attention all over the world, but critics claim that is the only accomplishment the movement will have.

Ukraine: Not What It Seems

After tense days of fighting this week, people in Ukraine are mourning the dead and celebrating the removal of President Victor Yanukovych from power. The final struggle that began on February 18, was the bloodiest endured by the protesters of Euromaidan. By February 22 the fighting was over.

Religious Freedom Bill - Protecting The Faithful or Legalized Discrimination?

After a much heated national debate, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer vetoed the controversial bill that would have allowed people and businesses in the state to refuse services to LBGT people based on their religious belief.

Coup Or Civil War In Egypt

The day after new protests erupted in Egypt the military in a show of support presented an ultimatum to Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood-led government. Morsi was to step down from power and meet all of the demands of the Egyptian people, or face being removed by the military on Wednesday. As the ultimatum deadline draws closer in Egypt, Morsi refuses to leave, insisting that parliamentary elections are needed before he should be removed, and that he doesn't have permission from the United States to remove himself from power. Most recently he stated he will pay with his life to preserve the sanctity of the ballot box.
