Rooney: Everyone at Everton wants Barkley to stay
Everton , by the sound of it are doing a "Daniel Levy" and holding off any offers under their £50m valuation (sounds familiar). If Barkley becomes a Spurs player he deserves our support, but until then it's very fair to question this possible signing.


Eight other Big Ten linebackers also made the watch list, including Ohio State fifth-year senior Chris Worley and junior Jerome Baker, Wisconsin fifth-year senior Jack Cichy and redshirt junior T.J. Edwards, Penn State senior Jason Cabinda, Maryland fifth-year senior Jermaine Carter, Iowa fifth-year senior Josey Jewell and IN senior Tegray Scales.

The Paul Hornung Award is in its eight season and is given annually to the most versatile player in college football by the Louisville Sports Commission. The award named after legendary linebacker Dick Butkus has been presented by the Butkus Foundation in every year since 1985.

At least seven dead after flooding in Arizona
Video shot by Disa Alexander shot shortly after the flood showed a man in a tree holding his baby as water rushed around him. Rescuers got to the four victims quickly after the crew heard their cries while they were nearby helping an injured hiker.


Williams is one of 51 candidates - 11 from the SEC - for the Butkus Award. Johnson (2003) and Sergio Kindle (2009) are the only other Longhorns to be named finalists. He was a second-team Football Writers Association of America honoree, becoming the first Husker freshman to make the FWAA All-America team. In addition, he was a semifinalist for the Butkus Award. He was named Big 12 Defensive Freshman of the Year, in addition to earning honorable mention All-Big 12 honors, after compiling 61 tackles, seven TFL and 2.5 sacks. He finished the 2016 season with 44 total tackles (23 solo, 21 assisted), six tackles for loss, five sacks, and two forced fumbles.
