People Can’t Stop Talking About The Player Who Just Won The Heisman Trophy

Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Kyler Murray was awarded the Heisman Trophy Saturday night. Murray played insanely well this past season as he led the Sooners to a 12-1 record, a Big 12 championship and a spot in the college football playoff. He was also named the AP Player of the Year. I don’t think anybody is overly surprised Murray is walking away with the most prestigious award in all of the sports. Earlier in the season, it looked like Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa would win the Heisman. However, the Alabama quarterback got hurt against Georgia and Murray just exploded on the scene as he dominated down the stretch. It became almost a certainty after conference championship weekend the electric dual-threat quarterback would take the Heisman home. Going into the playoff, Murray has thrown for 40 touchdowns and more than 4,000 yards. He will face Alabama and Tua in the semi-finals December 29.

Solari wins first game as Real Madrid boss in Copa del Rey

Goals from Benzema, Asensio, Odriozola and Gonzalez earn 4-0 win over third-tier Melilla Real Madrid’s interim coach Santiago Solari, right. Madrid: Santiago Solari’s reign as interim Real Madrid coach got off to an encouraging start on Wednesday as the European champions made light of third-tier hosts Melilla in the Copa del Rey. Goals from Karim Benzema, Marco Asensio, Alvaro Odriozola and Cristo Gonzalez earned the 19-time champions a 4-0 win on their first visit to this Spanish enclave on the north African coast. Solari was promoted from boss of Real’s Castilla B team on Monday after the sacking of Julen Lopetegui only 139 days after his appointment. Sunday’s 5-1 Clasico humbling by Barcelona proved the last straw for Real president Florentino Perez, who will nevertheless have been warmed by the team’s display in this last 32 first leg clash. Melilla may not be Barca or Manchester City but there was…

Ruthless Suarez sticks knife into Lopetegui

Barcelona forward Luis Suarez scored a hat-trick as his side thrashed arch-rivals Real Madrid 5-1 on Sunday in a highly entertaining ‘Clasico’, which surely will signal the end of hapless coach Julen Lopetegui’s spell in charge of Real. Barca’s Philippe Coutinho opened the scoring in the 11th minute following a slick team move and Suarez doubled their advantage on the half-hour mark by converting a penalty awarded after consultation with the video assistant referee (VAR). Real had looked lifeless in the first half but produced a courageous display after the break following a tactical switch from Lopetegui. They deservedly pulled a goal back through Marcelo and came close to grabbing an equaliser as Luka Modric struck the post and Sergio Ramos headed narrowly over. Barca reasserted their authority and ran riot in the final 15 minutes with two more goals from Suarez, while a header from substitute Arturo Vidal further…
