Florida's Tabor to NFL decision-makers: Just press play (Yahoo Sports)
Florida cornerback Jalen ''Teez'' Tabor wants NFL coaches, general managers and scouts to forget everything he's done the last two months.

Receivers standing out as Ohio State retools passing game (Yahoo Sports)
Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said Tuesday that Parris Campbell is distinguishing himself at receiver, and K.J. Hill, Terry McLaurin and Binjimen Victor are right behind him as the Buckeyes try to breathe some life back into their passing game this spring. The four wide receivers, along with Austin Mack and Johnnie Dixon, all saw playing time and showed flashes of talent last year, but none broke out as a top playmaker or reliable deep threat as expected. Meyer needs that to change next season, especially after the departure of the team's two top receivers, H-back Curtis Samuel and wideout Noah Brown.

Arkansas hoping new-look defense brings improvement (Yahoo Sports)
Bret Bielema grew up playing outside linebacker in a 3-4 defensive alignment before eventually moving to the defensive line and enjoying success there as a player at Iowa. Now entering his fifth season as the Arkansas coach, Bielema is about to pass those 3-4 lessons forward as the Razorbacks begin spring practice on Tuesday while looking for a quick fix to what was nothing short of an abysmal defensive performance last season. Arkansas finished 7-6 last year, doing so despite a defense that ranked 123rd out of 128 Football Bowl Subdivision schools in allowing an average of 6.75 yards per play.

Death threats to a ref – the lunatics are threatening to overtake Kentucky's fan base (Yahoo Sports)
Kentucky has the best and worst fans in college basketball. When the Wildcats are eliminated in the NCAA tournament, guess which faction takes over? At best, complaining about officiating for more than an hour or two after a loss is an incredibly lame waste of time.

Why Sindarius Thornwell's one-man NCAA tournament run ranks among best since 2000 (Yahoo Sports)
There are many reasons South Carolina was an afterthought heading in the 2017 NCAA tournament, but there is one main one — one broad one — that stands above the rest: The Gamecocks, by major conference standards, were frankly a bad offensive team. South Carolina was on the decline, too. It had scored a season-low 53 points in an SEC tournament loss to Alabama.
