A GRIP ON SPORTS

You might notice a new poll on this page, just to the left of where these words sit. Then again, you might not, especially if you access this column via your mobile device.

It’s time for introductions

A GRIP ON SPORTS

I'll admit I'm a bit prejudice here, but I've always felt the best stories to come from college football's preseason practice are the ones about players we know little about. Pieces about guys who are always destined for reserve roles. Features on players who have been under the radar but are about to break out into the consciousness of the fans. Stories like that. Today, Jacob Thorpe does one of the latter and boy is it fun. Read on.

Where will Lynch’s holdout lead the Hawks?

A GRIP ON SPORTS

Want to get a headache? Try putting yourself in the mind of Seahawk running back Marshawn Lynch. And figure out what his end-game is during his holdout from the Hawks' training camp. Read on.

Spreading the word about football season isn’t new

A GRIP ON SPORTS

I kept up with the first day of the Pac-12 media event the old-fashioned way: by reading tweets. None of this new-fangled video streaming for me. No sir. Words – and an occasional picture – are what it is about. Read on.

It’s not too long now

Making short work of a long weekend
