Heflin making most of surprisingly long Tennessee career

When people call you “Big Game Will” and your team loses a big game, it stings.

That’s the feeling Will Heflin had for much of the past week.

Heflin blamed himself — and erroneously so, according to his coaches and teammates — for coming up short in No. 2 Tennessee’s SEC Championship Game loss to No. 1 Arkansas on May 30 in Hoover, Ala.

That game was Heflin’s second start in four days, and he did a reasonable job containing arguably the most relentless offense in college baseball, especially considering the circumstances. He allowed

On Education, Joe Biden Is Making Sure “Nothing Will Fundamentally Change”

When it comes to education policy, Joe Biden is following through on his promise that nothing will fundamentally change.

Secretary Miguel Cardona has taken a prolonged “Help is Here” tour, but urgent demands from students, parents, and teachers are going unmet.

With over 500m people watching esports around the world, and viewership of top tier games frequently outstripping that of major sports like hockey and basketball, it’s clear that the esports industry and its legions of fans are here to stay.
