Hidden in the brush-off Lance Briggs gave the media yesterday is a much larger issue facing a team trying to push one side of the ball into modernity while keeping another rooted in the past.
Four NBA teams remain in the running for the title, and the never-say-die Bulls are not one of them because, well, they died.
I’m still waiting for a single credible argument against widely expanded use of instant replay in baseball to get critical calls right, since the two usually offered are embarrassingly limp.

Public opinion matters to the Cubs in their efforts to modernize their property and stabilize their presence in Tom Ricketts’ beloved Wrigleyville.
We asked for your submissions and you obliged. Many were predictably obtuse and pointless. Most, actually. But there were a handful worthy of thoughtful response.

He can change the team colors of his shirt and tie, but Steve Alford’s reptilian scales will always lie underneath.
Too many have forgotten exactly what Alford did in the aftermath of that incident in Iowa City on September 6, 2002.
Collins and Northwestern may be an ideal fit. It will certainly look and sound that way while it’s still all about appearances.
Despite the popularity of the clichéd, post-victory cry, nobody really “shocks the world.”
Let’s all stop the stupidity over Brian Urlacher needing to keep some kind of pristine connection to the Bears, as if the mere sight of him limping around the field in any other colors is somehow unthinkable.
The quarterback from Santa Claus, Indiana just got another Christmas morning.
