The first Saturday of the college football season was a big day for the little guys.Three Football Championship Subdivision programs knocked off Power Five teams. Richmond trounced Virginia 37-20, Northern Iowa beat Iowa State 25-20 and Eastern Washington defeated Washington State 45-42.This was a huge win, said Richmond coach Danny Rocco, a former Virginia assistant. We throw these words around like FBS and BCS. There is a huge difference. When you are playing a BCS or Power Five programs, thats a whole new ballgame. To step up and play like that and get a result like this speaks an awful lot about our program, staff, and student-athletes.A total of four FCS teams beat FBS programs this week. Albany defeated Mid-American Conference program Buffalo 22-16 on Friday.The results shouldnt have come as that much of a surprise.Richmond, which reached the FCS semifinals last season, is 4-5 against Atlantic Coast Conference teams since 2006 with wins against Duke in 2006, 2009 and 2011.Northern Iowa now is 3-3 against Iowa State since 2007. The Panthers previously beat Iowa State 24-13 in 2007 and 28-20 in 2013.Eastern Washington beat a 25th-ranked Oregon State team in 2013. This marked the second straight year in which Washington State opened by losing to an FCS team, as the Cougars fell 24-17 to Portland State last year.Richmond had an easy time Saturday, as Kyle Lauletta threw for 337 yards and three touchdowns to spoil Bronco Mendenhalls debut as Virginias coach.In the Northern Iowa game, JVeyon Browning had a 1-yard touchdown run to put the Panthers ahead for good with 2:49 left. Aaron Bailey threw for 135 yards and ran for 114 yards.Eastern Washingtons Gage Gubrud threw for 474 yards and five touchdowns while also rushing for 77 yards and a score against Washington State. Cooper Kupp caught 12 passes for 206 yards and three touchdowns.These three schools didnt have the only noteworthy performances by FCS teams.South Dakota State played No. 13 TCU tough all night and trailed 45-41 early in the fourth quarter before the Horned Frogs pulled away for a 59-41 victory.---AP college football website: . It might not have mattered. While the Dodgers are preparing for the playoffs, the Padres showed their future has promise behind two rookies. . The Browns coaching search remains incomplete. . - After leading the Saints to a fourth playoff appearance in five seasons, Drew Brees expressed confidence in the direction of his team and, perhaps more importantly, showed a willingness to listen to contract proposals if the team needs his help getting under the NFLs salary cap. . Radwanska, making her debut in the Seoul tournament, hit eight aces in a match that lasted 1 hour, 4 minutes at Olympic Park tennis stadium. "It was definitely a very good match -- I was playing really good tennis," Radwanska said. . -- If Henry Burris has his way, he will be the starting quarterback to lead the Hamilton Tiger-Cats back to the Grey Cup next year. The bond between Elena Delle and her sister, Lizzie, was made clear when she famously walked away from Geno Auriemmas Connecticut program after just 48 hours on campus. At first, it felt as though maybe shed burned out on basketball -- that the game shed always loved was somehow the problem. But soon it became clear to her that she wasnt walking away from anything, but rather walking toward her family.Delle Donnes older sister Lizzie has autism and cerebral palsy. Shes been blind and deaf since birth, so the only way for her loved ones to communicate with her is via touch and smell. Being at UConn meant losing all connection to Lizzie, and an 18-year-old Delle Donne just wasnt ready for that loss. She enrolled closer to home, at the University of Delaware, and eventually found the balance of family and basketball she needed.A new short film produced by Gatorade, For The Wind, explores the relationship between the Chicago Sky star and her sister, revealing the joy Lizzie feels when touched by the wind and how special it is for Delle Donne to play in Chicago. Gatorade also constructed a temporary wind-powered art installation outside of the Skys stadium, Allstate Arena. Over 1,500 wind spinners of different colors present different images from various perspectives, including a portrait of Delle Donne visible from one vantage point.The reigning WNBA MVP joined my podcast this week to speak about the project and the serendipitous nature of being drafted by the Sky.Its pretty crazy how fate works in ways like that, she said. The wind meaning so much to the two of us and then being a part of the Windy City and playing for Chicago, it all just came to fruition.dddddddddddd Its pretty amazing that it happened that way.Now 27 and in her fourth WNBA season, Delle Donne is able to play hundreds of miles away from home in part because she can still feel Lizzie every day.Truly the first time I left Delaware was when I was drafted here in Chicago, she said. It does have that homey feel, that family feel still. And then obviously when that wind blows and kicks up, its gonna always remind me of Liz.Delle Donne also thinks of Lizzie when shes faced with challenges like injuries and illness. Shes experienced incredible highs in her short time in the league -- being named WNBA Rookie of the Year in her first season and WNBA MVP in her third -- but also some lows, including an extended absence in her second season because of a flare up of Lyme disease, and now a thumb injury for which she underwent surgery last week and is at serious risk of missing the playoffs.Thank goodness for Liz, because theres been ups and downs in my career, said Delle Donne. Once again Im able to put it in perspective and look at her life, look at the challenges shes overcome and, you know, a banged up thumb is nothing compared to what shes had to deal with.As of Monday, Delle Donne is tied with Tina Charles atop the WNBA leaderboard with 21.5 points per game. Shes also tops in free throw percentage and in the top 5 in the league in three-point percentage and blocks. Her absence makes things much more difficult for the Sky, still seeking their first WNBA title.
