Necessary...??? Popular...??? It's A Split Decision

((HT: Sky Sports/ESPN FC))

A nine-month fall for Leicester City and manager Claudio Ranieri as he was dismissed. The Foxes are just above the drop zone in the Premier League and, after what a lot of pundits thought was the performance of the year in their one-goal Champions League loss to Sevilla, it's now a move for survival.

The sacking of Ranieri, though, didn't go over well as pundits overseas were more apt to blame the players than Ranieri:

And on this side of the pond as well...

But we now know one person who isn't interested- Inter's Roberto Mancini...

Manchester United's Jose Mourinho wore Ranieri's initials on his training outfit earlier Friday morning

So, according to SkyBet, Alan Pardew is now the betting favorite at 6:1. Nigel Pearson is 8:1, Gary Rowett is at 10:1. Frank de Boer rounds out your top five at 11:1. The HQ doesn't see the Foxes bringing back Pearson after the dismissal that led to Ranieri getting hired in the first place.

The HQ doesn't also see the Foxes getting relegated since there are teams that are worse (Hull, Sunderland, and Palace).

Oops: This is why you don't tie your shoe during a basketball game

So....in this day of social media video you don't want to be caught doing something that will live on forever via video. Northwestern Women's basketball player Ashley Deary had one of those moments Thursday night.

Dear was bringing the ball up court early in the 2nd half of a Wildcats win over Rutgers when she realized her shoe was not tied. So she put the ball on the floor, leaned over and tied it.

A pair of Rutgers defenders---realizing what was going on scrambled for the ball, knocked Deary away from it and got an easy layup for the effort.

No, it wasn't a fatal mistake, as you can see Northwestern was already up 12 points against an outgunned Rutgers team. They'd go on to grab an easy 60-38 Big 10 win. 


Boom! Syracuse downs Duke on a Crazy Buzzer Beater

Ordinarily we wouldn't necessarily highlight a game that was seen and reported on nationally but this is just plain amazing. And it was one heck of a win.

The Syracuse Orangemen kept alive their flickering NCAA Tournament hopes with an insane 78-75, buzzer beating win over the Duke Blue Devils.

The win came after Syracuse guard John Gillon caught an outlet pass after a missed Blue Devil shot with just five seconds left on the clock. Gillon weaved his way through traffic and stopped with just fractions of a second left, at least 5 feet before the three-point line and banked in a rainbow jumper as the buzzer went off, sending the 30,000-plus fans in a raucous Carrier Dome into a crazed frenzy.

Enough with the adjectives and/or metaphors...just watch:

Dillon ended the night with 26 points and the win snapped Syracuse's 3-game losing streak. It was their 3rd win over a "Top 10" opponent and for the Dukies, it ended their hope at a regular season ACC title and put a halt on their 7-game win streak.
