Today is Neymar's birthday, and he's injured.You're tempted to say "plus ca change" -- after all, he was sidelined this time last year too.

Take a step back, soak in all that Week 6 had to offer, commit it to memory. It's important to truly absorb every detail, every flubbed SMU kick return and every grooving Kansas cymbal player and every horrifying ECU mascot trick during a blackout.Remember all of this, all the indignities of Week 6, because three months from now, when the collective groans about yet another Clemson-Alabama playoff matchup becomes the
UFC president Dana White is getting more and more fond of a potential matchup between lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and former welterweight and middleweight champ Georges St-Pierre. Originally noncommittal, White changed his tune at the UFC 242 post-fight press conference in Abu Dhabi in early September. In his parting words, White answered a question about the possibility of the matchup with a long, drawn out pause, a smile, and then,
