Jim Nagy spent part of Tuesday watching and evaluating Jarrett Stidham's performance against Tennessee. He came away somewhat surprised. "I was expecting to see something a lot worse," Nagy, a longtime NFL scout and current executive director of the Senior Bowl, said Wednesday on 105.5 WNSP. While Auburn fans may be turning on Stidham, NFL people aren't giving up on him. Is his stock down? Yes. But Nagy and others in the football world are still very high on Stidham's skill set -- and it's still possible that the redshirt junior could be one of the top quarterbacks taken in next year's NFL draft. "I didn't think Jarrett played all that bad against Tennessee," Nagy said of Stidham, who threw for 322 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions against the Vols. "He threw one pick where he forced it, and then the other one was on an ill-conceived gadget play that didn't make a lot of sense to me running it. But he still looks like a really high draftable quarterback in my eyes." … [Read more...] about Jarrett Stidham ‘still looks like a really high draftable QB’
Revolutions are exhausting.It’s been a year now since Harvey Weinsten became a household name for those outside the realm of Hollywood’s elite, and about the same since here, in New Orleans, John Besh’s future at the restaurant group bearing his name was thrown into question. Dozens of other men with big shot titles printed on their business cards came tumbling down as Me Too went from hashtag to movement and accusations of sexual misconduct in varying degrees were lobbed against people who’d seemed untouchable.Man. Hell hath no fury like women assaulted, harassed, raped, forgotten and ignored.It’s tough to call any of what’s happened a victory, exactly, because of the cost. But it’s tough, too, to look at the past year and think we’re not better off.Trust me, that itself is hard to say. Especially after the past few weeks. We watched actress Alyssa Milano, who popularized Tarana Burke’s #MeToo on Twitter, as she poked her head out … [Read more...] about It’s been a year since Me Too came to New Orleans.

Active shooter drills have become a normal part of life for many students in the United States. Beverly Gardens Elementary School, next to the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, in Riverside, Ohio, began holding shooter drills shortly after the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre. Beverly Gardens is also one of a small number of schools nationwide that actively trains and arms some of its staff. As part of our series, "School Matters," CBS News' Vladimir Duthiers reported from inside Stephanie Thornton's fourth grade classroom at Beverly Gardens as kids prepared for the possibility of violence in their school. It's something they've grown accustomed to. "CBS This Morning" wanted to show parents across the country what the drill looks like when it's happening live, because it's one thing to know your children are training to respond to an active shooter, but another thing to see it. After Principal Cristi Fields announced the drill to students, they sprang into action, barricading the door to … [Read more...] about What an active shooter drill in a 4th grade classroom looks like
HOUSTON — We keep waiting. But time is running out. We watch, we scrutinize. When exactly are the Red Sox going to show they are not that 108-win team? That they are not historic? That they are not great? For those scoring at home, the answer is not yet — and maybe not ever. They are now 113 victories into this 2018 season or six away from a championship. Take your pick. These Red Sox soundly conquered a very good Yankees team in the regular season and then in the Division Series. They now lead — two games to one — an even better Astros club than the one that captured the World Series last year. Yep, their ace has been ailing. They never have fully solved the link from starter to their closer. That closer, Craig Kimbrel, has not been good this postseason. Their catchers don’t hit. They mix and match at three of the four infield positions and it verges more toward desperation than inspiration. This is not the formula for historic greatness. Yet, here are … [Read more...] about Red Sox looking like they are historic
