DENVER — Peyton Manning laughed when his receivers played hot potato with his record-setting memento last weekend.
He won’t be nearly as jolly Thursday night if the San Diego Chargers play keep-away from the Denver Broncos’ high-powered offense as they did last year.
The Broncos were held under 65 snaps just twice last season — both times by San Diego.

1. Amarillo High (7-0, 1-0): The Sandies had an open week last week after winning their District 2-6A opener and their biggest challenge tonight against Lubbock Monterey might be knocking off some rust before facing Tascosa next week.
2. Tascosa (6-1, 0-1): Tascosa’s perfect season went out the window in last week’s heartbreaking loss to Frenship to open 2-6A play, and the Rebels have no time to stew over that before playing Lubbock Coronado on Friday.

FORT WORTH — TCU coach Gary Patterson isn’t afraid to say that the renovated offense he ordered after last season didn’t look great in spring practice.
Yet, he’s not sure where to start on how the 10th-ranked Horned Frogs turned into the nation’s most improved offense in points scored and yards.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — The scale of an academic scandal involving bogus classes and inflated grades at the University of North Carolina was far more widespread than previously reported and included about 1,500 athletes who got easy As and Bs over a span of nearly two decades, according to an investigation released Wednesday.
At least nine university employees were fired or under disciplinary review, and the question now becomes what, if anything, the NCAA will do next. Penalties could range from fewer scholarships to vacated wins.
Crystal Ball week eight

Week 8 of the 2014 Amarillo Globe-News Crystal Ball left yours truly and Kale Steed tied for first place thanks to my 11-4 week.
Had the officials swallowed that whistle in the Florida State-Notre Dame game Kale would still be in the lead.
Volleyball expert/Dallas Cowboys fanatic Terrence Hunley sits in third place, three wins out of first.
While writing machine Lee Passmore is only five back from glory.
Wrigley, Kale’s dog, had a huge week going 10-5 and stole the spotlight this week.

I graduated fourth in my high school class. Sounds impressive, right? But it was fourth out of a class of 35, so not even in the top 10 percent.
A few years ago, my wife and I traveled to Israel. The trip was phenomenal. The plane ride, not so much, because for one of the longest legs of the trip, we did not sit together.
