    Bay Area sports stars among hundreds fined for heavy water use. Here’s why their excess is bad

    More than 600 East Bay households were fined for exceeding limits on water use during the latest billing period — the second consecutive billing period in which fines have been issued — exhibiting behavior that water officials say is not only a violation of drought policy but bad for everyone in the region. Among the customers with heavy water consumption were 24 Hour Fitness founder Mark Mastrov, former NFL running back Maurice Jones-Drew and retired Warriors basketball center Adonal Foyle, all of whom were also fined during last decade’s drought for using too much.

    Urban Meyer among usual, sad suspects being tossed out for college coaching spots

    Luke Getsy Reputation Described As “Brilliant” Among NFL People

    NFL sophomore breakouts: Five receivers and a Saints tight end among those poised for strong second season

    The 2021 NFL season was strong with standout rookie performers but others develop at their own pace. Some might have been held back by a lack of opportunity, coaching decisions or injuries. CBS Sports examines some of the potential breakout sophomore stars with the qualifier that each player was not present on the regular-season finale rookie rankings.  Before getting started, I have to discuss Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb. He is one of the exclusions because he was a part of the final rankings but he has the potential to become a superstar this season. Lamb, my personal top receiver prospect a year ago, averaged 5.8 receptions for 86.6 yards…
