With the incomparable career of Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully in its final days, let's not forget that for many years prior to the tragic 2007 death of minor league first-base coach Mike Coolbaugh on a line drive that struck him in the neck, Scully publicly and privately implored base coaches to wear protective headgear. When MLB mandated helmets for coaches in 2008, Commissioner Bud Selig acknowledged that Scully's efforts went well beyond advocacy over the airwaves. "Vin Scully called me a lot about this issue," Selig said. "He was worried that somebody would get hurt or killed. And, of course, somebody has been killed." Scully's dedication to the well-being of the people of the game is integral to his legacy.

Stanford's last-play, defensive touchdown that covered the spread in a 22-13 win over UCLA caused a $200,000 swing against the house for Las Vegas sportsbook operator CG Technology. Stanford was a 3.5-point favorite.

The primary takeaway from Stanford's comeback win at UCLA: the Cardinal now know that they can trust their quarterback to complement Christian McCaffrey. Ryan Burns was fantastic in the 2-minute drill to win that tractor pull of a game.
