GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — As the Los Angeles Rams’ fate became distressingly clear in the final minutes of Saturday’s game, cameras showed a tearful Aaron Donald on the sideline. The unanimous All-Pro defensive tackle had worked tirelessly to play after a rib injury knocked him out of a playoff victory at Seattle a week earlier, but he clearly wasn’t himself and had just one assisted tackle. Without Donald in peak form, the NFL’s top defense simply couldn’t slow down the league’s highest-scoring offense.

Michigan basketball has a couple of future pros on its roster. Maybe more than a couple. And yet it’s not the talent that makes this team so tantalizing and, potentially, so special. It’s the supreme effort defensively. It’s the unselfishness offensively. It’s the experience and savvy despite the new pieces. It’s the connectedness — especially the connectedness. Without it, the Wolverines can lose by 18 (after trailing by 23) and get run off the floor by a team it punished a couple of weeks earlier

While many popular movies and TV shows center around the ups, downs, in and outs of high school, many of the lead actors playing teens are actually 20- or even 30-somethings in real life.
