ATLANTA — Six weeks ago, West Virginia receiver Kevin White shook off a wave of fatigue and picked up his iPad. He was aboard a silver jet en route to Big 12 Media Days in Dallas, but there was something on his mind. He flicked his finger across the screen and pulled up the film he watched over and over this offseason. Indeed, White reckons he watched Alabama game film every day this summer, and there was always something new to learn. He would study the cornerbacks and safeties, jotting down notes about their hitches and tendencies, their footwork and brute force on routes across the...

I have no problem with the U.S. air-dropping supplies to the stranded Yazidis on Mount Sinjar in northern Iraq. It was the right thing to do. Now let's show the same concern for our own hungry citizens stranded in poverty. That's also the right thing to do.

It has been forty years since the Watergate scandal forced Richard M. Nixon to resign from office. Jimmy Carter, elected as a backlash to Nixon, only lasted one term.

It would be easy for the West Virginia University football coaches to spend a little extra time on game planning with a full offseason to get ready for Nick Saban and crew in the Aug. 30 Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game in Atlanta.
