After a brief flirtation with the NFL's Philadelphia Eagles, Brian Kelly elected to return to the school which he previous led to an undefeated regular season, only stumbling in the last game of the season, a 42-14 thrashing by SEC heavyweight Alabama in the BCS National Championship Game.

The defense is in good hands with Bob Diaco - a rising star in the coaching business - whose 3-4 defense finished second in the nation in scoring defense.

The offense grew throughout the 2012 campaign as red-shirt freshman, Everett Golson grew into the offense, finishing the season strong with 286 passing yards and 2 total touchdowns against the revered Crimson Tide Defense.

Chuck Martin begins his second season as the Fighting Irish's Offensive Co-ordinator and looks to put a deadly, balanced spread offense on the field in the 2013-2014 season.

Wandy's Strong Outing Not Enough as D-Backs Slide Past Bucs 2-1

ARIZONA - The Pirates headed into Arizona taking their first series from the Dodgers, something they haven't been able to say in a long time. The early west coast trips have haunted the Pirates for the past several years, but the Pirates look to turn things around with another series win in Arizona.

Starling Marte started the game off right, with a leadoff double. But Marte, got caught in a rundown heading for 3rd, after a Neil Walker single, to end the inning. Wandy Rodriguez, who pitched great his first game of the season, started off allowing a hit and then hitting a batter, but struck out Paul Goldschmidt to end the inning. In the top of the 3rd, the Pirates definitely got some unexpected offense, coming off a solo home run from Josh Harrison, giving the Pirates a 1-0 lead. Ian Kennedy and Wandy Rodriguez continued to duel it out into the 6th, when the Pirates had both Starling Marte and Neil Walker on base with only 1 out. But Kennedy got Andrew McCutchen to strike out swinging and Gaby Sanchez to fly out to end the inning. Ian Kennedy was pulled after six innings of work, after a single by Garrett Jones, but the Pirates were unable to take advantage of the opportunity. With Wandy nearing 90 pitches heading into the 7th, Clint Hurdle chose not to make the move to the bullpen and kept him in the game. The D-Backs took advantage. Parra singled to center, followed by a double to deep left by Martin Prado to score Parra and tie the game at 1. Willie Bloomquist came in and singled, sending Prado to 3rd. Montero hit a sac fly into double play scoring Prado to give the D-Backs a 2-1 lead heading into the 9th. The D-Backs turned to J.J. Putz to close, who got Sanchez, Jones, and Alvarez all to fly out, dropping the Pirates to 3-4 on the season.

4/27/13-Wizards ship Price to Bobcats for Greene

WASHINGTON-Looking to add a veteran to their stable of point guards, the Washington Wizards swapped third-string point guard A.J. Price to the Charlotte Bobcats for point guard Orien Greene.

Greene and Price-with contracts set to expire at the end of the season-both signed one-year contract extensions after the trade was completed.

Price played just 12 games for the Wizards this season, finding short minutes stuck behind John Wall and backup Delonte West. Price averaged three points a game in those 12 contests.

Wizards general manager Ernie Grunfeld said Price requested a trade to see more playing time, but Price will be the third-choice point guard for the Bobcats as well, behind Kemba Walker and Ramon Sessions.

Greene appeared in just 19 games for the Bobcats this season, averaging just 4.3 minutes in the games he did play in. The 31-year-old veteran has appeared in just 29 NBA games total over the last three years.

4/27/13-Trail Blazers begin roster overhaul, send Hickson to Magic in three-team trade

PORTLAND-If there was any doubt Portland was going to draft a center in the upcoming draft, Saturday's trade all but erased those doubts.

The Trail Blazers seemingly confirmed the rumors that the team would draft a center in the upcoming draft when they shipped center J.J. Hickson to the Orlando Magic for three players and a draft pick in a three-team trade Saturday.

Portland sent Hickson, point guard Ronnie Price, and small forward Luke Babbitt to the Magic for point guard Sebastian Telfair, small forward Linas Kleiza, center Hassan Whiteside, and a 2013 second round draft pick.

In a related move, Portland sent center DeSagana Diop to the Phoenix Suns for center Kyrylo Fesenko. Portland then waived both Fesenko and Whiteside and signed veteran center D.J. Mbenga, leaving an open roster spot for Portland's future draft pick.

Orlando also waived a player acquired in the trade in Price, choosing to sign shooting guard Donald Sloan over retaining Price.

Hickson, acquired by the Trail Blazers off waivers in March 2012, averaged 13 points and 9.5 rebounds in 81 games for Portland this season. According to Magic general manager Rob Hennigan, Hickson-on a one-year deal with Portland-will sign a two-year contract extension with Orlando on Monday.

Price averaged just 3.2 points and 3.1 assists in 79 games for Portland this season as the third-choice point guard behind Damian Lillard and Nolan Smith. Price would've been the fourth-string point guard on the Magic, behind Jameer Nelson, Ish Smith, and Darius Johnson-Odom had the team kept him.

Babbitt averaged 3.5 points and 1.3 rebounds in 80 games for the Trail Blazers. Orlando, rumored to be targeting UCLA small forward Shabazz Muhammad or Georgetown small forward Otto Porter, is not expected to retain Babbitt for next season.

Telfair, Portland's first round pick in 2004, was acquired by the Magic from the Suns in late March as part of deal for Hedo Turkoglu. In 82 games between the Suns and Magic, Telfair averaged 3.7 points and 1.5 assists per game.

Portland is not expected to retain Telfair; a Trail Blazers front office source reported that the team is interested in drafting North Carolina State's Lorenzo Brown or Detroit Mercy's Ray McCallum with one of their second round picks.

Orlando acquired Kleiza, Portland's first round pick in 2005, in the trade that sent Al Harrington to Toronto. In 73 games between both teams, Kleiza averaged 3.6 points and 1.3 rebounds. A Trail Blazers front office source said the team was still undecided on whether or not to retain Kleiza.

Whiteside, who didn't appear in a game this season, was acquired by the Magic in a swap with the Hornets involving Kyle O'Quinn.

Diop was acquired by the Trail Blazers in late March from the Bobcats for Jared Jeffries, averaging less than a point and 1.6 rebounds per game in 51 games between both teams.

Fesenko played in just five games for the Suns all season, averaging 2.2 points and one rebound in those games.

Mbenga played the entire season for the D-League's Reno Bighorns, averaging 14.8 points and 12.6 rebounds in 50 games with Reno. Trail Blazers general manager Neil Olshey said the team brought Mbenga aboard to mentor Portland's young center Meyers Leonard and their future draft choice.

Portland is rumored to be targeting one of three centers with their top pick: Alex Len of Maryland, Isaiah Austin of Baylor, and Kelly Olynyk of Gonzaga, with Len as their top choice.

Sloan, like Mbenga, played the entire season in the D-League. In 50 games for the Sioux Falls Skyforce, the Texas A&M product averaged 22.1 points and 7.4 assists per game.

MINNEAPOLIS-Minnesota head coach Rick Adelman told reporters after his team's 98-91 win that for the first three quarters, it was the worst he'd seen one of his teams play "in 30 years."

"That game was the worst I've seen my team play since my days coaching junior college ball," he said. "That goes back, oh, about 35 years now? That is, until that fourth quarter. That was a work of beauty."

Minnesota turned the ball over 17 times in the first three quarters of Game 4, but the Timberwolves frontcourt kept Dallas from opening a huge margin; despite all the turnovers, Dallas held only a 72-67 lead.

That all added up into a huge fourth quarter rally by the Timberwolves. Minnesota opened the quarter on a 12-0 run and outscored the Mavericks 31-19 in the quarter. To top it all off, Minnesota didn't turn the ball over once during the quarter.

Both teams had all five starters score in double figures. Nikola Pekovic led the Timberwolves with 20 points and five rebounds, while Dirk Nowitzki led the Mavericks with 16 points.

Two Timberwolves starters finished the game with double-doubles. Kevin Love scored 17 points and collected 13 rebounds, and Ricky Rubio scored 13 points and tallied 15 assists.

The other two starters, Brandon Roy and Andrei Kirilenko, scored 12 points and 11 points, respectively. Alexey Shved also scored 10 points off the bench for the Timberwolves.

Behind Nowitzki, Vince Carter finished with 15 points, and Darren Collison scored 14 points and tallied eight assists. O.J. Mayo scored 13 points, tallied eight assists, and collected six rebounds. Shawn Marion was the last Mavericks starter to score in double figures, scoring 10 points.

LOS ANGELES - Game 3 of this three game series between the Pirates and Dodgers was looking to be a good one, with A.J. Burnett opposing Clayton Kershaw on the mound. The skies were dreary and there was a light rain falling, but not enough to keep the game from starting.

In the top of the first, Andrew McCutchen hit a two out double to get the Pirates their first hit of the game. But as we've seen so many times so far this season, Pedro Alvarez struck out swinging to end the inning. In the bottom of the 1st, Burnett ran into early trouble when Andrew McCutchen slipped while running to catch a fly ball in the outfield, allowing a triple to Carl Crawford. Mark Ellis would then single, putting the Dodgers up 1-0. But the Pirates came right back in the top of the 2nd, with both Josh Harrison and Russell Martin singling, followed by a three run homer by Clint Barmes to give the Pirates a 3-1 lead. Burnett allowed a leadoff double to Matt Kemp in the bottom of the 4th, but squandered any sort of rally but getting out of the rest of the inning untouched. Burnett and Kershaw each threw a scoreless 5th inning, but trouble started to brew for Burnett in the bottom of the 6th. Mark Ellis led off with a single, followed by free pass walks to Adrian Gonzalez and Matt Kemp. Burnett completely lost control of his outing after a single by Andre Ethier which deflected off RF Garrett Jones, allowing both Ellis and Gonzalez, tying the game at 3. That would end the day for A.J. Burnett, as Clint Hurdle turned to Justin Wilson who had a rough outing the last time he back Burnett. Wilson gave up an RBI single to A.J. Ellis which gave the Dodgers a 4-3 lead, allowing Jared Hughes to come in and strike out two to end the inning. With Kershaw being pulled after 7 innings, the Dodgers turned to Chris Capuano. With 2 outs and a 3-2 count in the Top of the 8th, Pedro Alvarez singled to give the Pirates some life. Then when the Pirates seemed down and out, Gaby Sanchez blasted a 2 run home run to give the Pirates a 5-4 lead heading into the bottom of the 8th. Jared Hughes who struck out two in the 7th, struck out the two more and then allowed a loud out at the warning track by Hanley Ramirez. Jason Grilli came in for the save opportunity and ended the game by striking out Carl Crawford to collect his 3rd save of the season. By winning game three, the Pirates won their first series of the season. Note: Josh Harrison went 4-4, with tho doubles and two singles.

QUEENS - Matt Harvey rebounded from two dreadful starts, but it wasn't enough as the Nationals kept rolling, winning their 7th straight game in a 5-3, 10-inning victory over the Mets.

Harvey allowed just one run and 6 hits and struck out 8 in 8 innings, but the bullpen, staked with a 1-0 lead, gave up 3 runs to hand the Nats the win.

The Nationals were lead by Ian Desmond, who's 2-run homer in the 10th capped a 4-RBI day. Stephen Strasburg set the tone for the Mets, stymying New York bats with a three-hitter in seven innings pitched.

SALT LAKE CITY-Grant Hill scored 12 points to pace a potent Clippers bench that outscored Utah's bench 45-16 en route to an easy 90-74 win over the Jazz in Game 4 of their series.

All seven of Los Angeles's bench players scored in the rout, led by Hill's 12 and Matt Barnes's 11 points. Hill and Barnes were responsible for 16 of the 26 points scored by bench players in the third quarter.

The duo scored the first eight points of the quarter, which head coach Vinny Del Negro said gave him the confidence to keep the bench players in for most of the third quarter.

Chris Paul led the Clippers with 13 points and seven assists. DeAndre Jordan was the only other Clippers starter in double figures, his first double-digit scoring game of the series. Jordan had 10 points in the win.

Mo Williams led the Jazz with 17 points and eight assists, followed closely by Al Jefferson's 16 points and five rebounds. Two other Jazz starters scored in double figures: Raja Bell scored 11 points and collected five rebounds, while Paul Millsap tallied 10 points and five rebounds.

LOS ANGELES - Jeff Locke made his season debut for the Pirates, after winning the number five spot in the rotation coming out of Spring. Some may say he won this spot due to inconsistency from other pitchers and injuries, but Locke will tell you he rightfully deserves the spot. Locke faces a tough task against a power hitting Dodgers lineup, in game three of the three game series.

After a scoreless top of the 1st from , Jeff Locke looked even better by getting through the inning on three pitches. Then in the 3rd, Locke got into a 2-2 count and singled up the middle for his first hit of the season. Unfortunately, Jose Tabata would run into a double play to end the inning. With the game tied at 0 heading into the 4th, Jeff Locke hit a bump in the road, allowing a solo home run to Matt Kemp to give the Dodgers a 1-0 lead. After a quick top of the 5th, Locke again found himself in trouble, allowing a leadoff single to Andre Ethier, which was followed by an A.J. Ellis RBI double to put the Dodgers up 2-0. But the bleeding hadn't stopped, when pitcher Ted Lilly sacrificed Ellis to 3rd, allowing Carl Crawford's single to score Ellis giving the Dodgers a 3-0 lead. As the Pirates again made no noise in the 6th, Matt Kemp started off the bottom of the 6th with a single, which chased Jeff Locke from the game. Justin Wilson came in from the pen and forced Hanley Ramirez into a double play to end the inning. In the top of the 7th, the Bucs bats came alive with a string of hits including a Pedro Alvarez single and Travis Snider single. Michael McKenry pulled off a sac bunt to put Alvarez in scoring position, for Clint Barmes to hit a sac fly, bringing the score to 3-1. The Pirates struck again in the top of the 8th, with an RBI single by Travis Snider to bring the Bucs within 1. But the rally would fall short and the Pirates would fall to the Dodgers 3-2. The Bucs look to take the series from the Dodgers in game 3 tomorrow.

2013 Detroit Draft Selections


Pick #1 - 8th Overall
"Alex is a future starting goaltender in this organization, Jimmy Howard is in his prime and we understand that, but he was the best available at #8 and that's why we took him, you take the best available at 8."

Pick #2 - 12th Overall
"We love what Adam can give to a team. He is a great defensive player that has some offensive pop to him. He is already ready to play in the NHL at a physical level, he just needs to work on his skating and develop his puck skills."

Pick #5 - 49th Overall
"We watched Sven alot the past few seasons, his skating and puck skills are elite, however, his defensive game is not the best positionally, though he backchecks very hard. He is a magician with the puck and we hope he can bring that to the NHL level in a possible future 3rd or 2nd line role.

Pick #6 - 51st Overall
"I feel like this is a gem in the rough pick, we can't believe he dropped to 51. He uses that huge frame (6' 5", 231) to his advantage, he's a beast among men. We think he can be a valuable asset to our franchise heading forward."

Pick #9 - 76th Overall
"Obviously Jordan has the family genes and it was a good thing we were able to pick him up. We like his offensive game as a Dman, but he needs to get better defensively to become a NHL contributor."

Pick #10 - 87th Overall
"Chad was the only LW we picked in this draft, and the office is OK with that, he has some size and a wicked shot with a knack for finding guys through traffic with his passes, his overall game is not NHL ready but we are looking forward to his improvement over time."

I've decided to start posting my dynasty results here. Though I'm a little late to the party, I love the table generators on OS, so I've decided to get going here. Enjoy!

The Mets currently sit at 5-11, 8.5 games behind the first place (13-2) Nationals. Though there have been bright points along the way, the Mets have not gotten off to the fast start they wanted, though the start is basically what the rest of Major League Baseball had predicted.

After opening 2013 with a 3-2 win over the Padres, the Mets dropped three straight before evening their record by taking the last two games from their series with the Marlins. But since that point, it's been a 2-8 stretch, including 5 straight losses to the Phillies and Twins.

Bright Points - David Wright continues to earn the C on his chest, hitting .373/2/7 up to this point, leading the team and near the top of the league in average. Ike Davis hit a homerun in each of the team's first four games, but he's had just one since (.258/5/11). Lucas Duda is the Met who has shone the most, however, hitting .346 with 5 homers and 9 RBI.

On the mound, Shaun Marcum has been a nice surprise, posting a 1.23 ERA through his first three starts, though only earning one win. Though Zack Wheeler was rocked in his first two starts, he rebounded with a 14-strikeout, 4-hit shutout of the Rockies this week.

The struggles - Rookie catcher Travis D'Arnaud looked decent in the spring and earned the opening day start for the Mets, but he was 2 for his first 21 with 0 RBI and proved to be over his head. He was demoted to Las Vegas, but has gone .259/1/3 in his 27 at-bats since. The Mets signed veteran Brian Schneider to fill the platoon role with John Buck.

Outside of Duda, the outfield has been weak. Cowgill (.167/0/2) and Byrd (.241/0/7) are close to playing their way out of the starting lineups. Ruben Tejada (.236/0/4) is also struggling.

But the biggest shocker has been the play of Matt Harvey in his sophomore season. Harvey is 0-2 with an 8.44 ERA through 3 starts.

The Mets will look to turn things around and though they don't figure to contend for the NL East crown, they'll at least look to compete and get their young prospects ready for the future.
