Gamecock football’s Nick Muse posts career day vs Vanderbilt

“Robo Leg” did just fine.

Nick Muse has a dry sense of humor. He can be self-deprecating, but he doesn’t lack confidence. When the senior tight end stepped to the podium after South Carolina’s 41-7 win at Vanderbilt, he saw his final stat line on the box score: five catches for 85 yards.

“That’s it?” he said, laughing. “I should’ve had six for 92.”

Both the five catches and the 85 yards were career highs.

A transfer from William & Mary, Muse only played seven games in 2019 before tearing his ACL. He’s had to wait a year for his moment of glory with the Gamecocks.

It came Saturday, with the Gamecocks offense scuffling early against an aggressive Vanderbilt pass rush. With the defense honed in on veteran wideout Shi Smith — the nation’s leader in receptions per game entering the day — quarterback Collin Hill desperately needed to find

Novak Djokovic confident he can still finish career with all-time Grand Slam record


World No. 1 Novak Djokovic still believes that he can finish his career with the all-time Grand Slam record. Djokovic, seeded at No. 1, was badly beaten in the French Open final as No. 2 seed Rafael Nadal won 6-2 6-0 7-5 to lift his 13th title at the French Open.

With his 13th French Open title, Nadal tied Roger Federer on the all-time Grand Slam record list with 20 Majors captured. “If I thought that it was too late, I would have ended my career today. But I do not think it is too late, I will keep on going as long as I have fuel in my legs and love and desire towards the sport,” Djokovic said, per Tennis Majors.

“One defeat, even though it is in a Grand Slam final, cannot destabilise me. I have developed a rather “thick skin”, I do not allow myself to

There are a few underachievers in the list of 10 most expensive signings of all time but no one tops Ousmane Dembele for a failure to deliver value for money.

Diario Sport recently calculated that the sixth all-time biggest signing has played just 25 per cent of possible minutes since his arrival in the summer of 2017.

Barcelona’s failure to package him off to Manchester United before deadline day means that Ronald Koeman must now somehow put the brakes on Dembele’s career that is currently heading for the edge of a cliff.

35 Years Ago, ‘After Hours’ Saved Martin Scorsese’s Career



a clock hanging on the wall

Right now, you could make a pretty iron-clad case that Martin Scorsese is our greatest living director. There’s a handful of solid runners-up, to be sure. But I can’t think of another filmmaker (American or otherwise) who’s compiled as many masterpieces and near-masterpieces as he has during his six decades behind the camera. Even now, at age 77, there’s no shortage of major studios and steaming services who would kill to be in business with him. I mean, who else could have gotten Netflix to fork over $160 million to make a three-and-a-half hour gangster epic like The Irishman with no strings attached and no questions asked?

And yet there was a time back in the early 1980s when Scorsese was written off as box-office poison. Even after having made Mean Streets, Taxi Driver, and Raging Bull, no one wanted to touch him with

Julio Jones sets Atlanta Falcons career receptions record

The Atlanta Falcons have not received a lot of good news this season.

After falling to the Green Bay Packers 30-16 on Monday night, the Falcons are sitting at 0-4 and enduring their third consecutive slow start to a season under head coach Dan Quinn.

However, in the midst of their struggles, the Falcons did find time to celebrate star receiver Julio Jones for becoming the franchise leader in career receptions.

Jones passed franchise legend Roddy White with his 809th catch against the Packers. Jones made the reception deep on his goal line as the Falcons were backed up. The NFL star finished with four catches for 32 yards in the game.
