He reportedly received a two year deal with the Vikings, putting him under contract through 2019. That would likely tie DeFilippo’s employment status to that of coach Mike Zimmer, whose current deal reportedly runs through 2019 (and, for that matter, General Manager Rick Spielman, whose own deal is believed to be on the same schedule as Zimmer’s). DeFilippo, though, is an up and comer in the industry who interviewed for the Bears head coaching opening last month and might have talked to the Colts about their opening had the Vikings not locked him up first.
The Inglewood stadium may well be laudable for fan experience upon its scheduled 2019 opening, and it is laudable in the interim for siphoning relatively little money from the public treasury to fund its construction. Kroenke and his partners could get $100 million in tax breaks, a pittance considering that the proposal in St. Louis called for almost four times as much in public funding..
The Mavericks (21 45), also among the NBA’s worst teams, allowed their fewest points in any half this season while building a 56 30 halftime lead on the way to their largest margin of victory this season. Barnes had 14 points in the first half, 10 of them on 11 free throws.

“Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig may have been up to a lot of things, but we did not know about it. Ross is trying to do down in Miami and, of course, what we saw with the Los Angeles Clippers with Donald Sterling, which shook a lot of people to their core. I don’t know if anybody believes that we are in a society where racism [does not exist], but it is still a scary prospect that a man who owned a professional franchise who obviously had a great deal of power, a great deal of wealth had these views about people who in some respects were working for him..
Look, nobody expected this team to beat a championship caliber team like Ohio State or Michigan State this season. But the difference between the 7 6 team Penn State was and the nine or 10 win outfit it could have been is finishing off some games against the good, solid teams on the schedule that have about as much talent as it does. And for two years, these Nittany Lions have badly failed repeated attempts to win that type of game..
