Maine South to be stripped of 8A title?

The head of the Illinois High School Association backed off the possibility that Maine South would be stripped of their Class 8A state football championship title it won on Saturday night in light of alleged violations.

Maine South is accused of printing extra, fraudulent, sideline passes as well as engaging in vulgar taunting.

"Our rules are very clear about how many passes schools get and who is to get them," IHSA executive director Marty Hickman said. "We are taking this matter very seriously. We are concerned that they used fraudulent passes to gain a competitive advantage having extra coaches, extra spotters and extra people not available to other folks. (ChicagoBreakingSports)

Bears getting no respect?

Despite an impressive statement win over the explosive Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday afternoon, NFL.com senior analyst Pat Kirwan still believes the Bears will miss the playoffs. Kirwan listed his his six playoff contenders from each league, as well as one extra seventh team - the team he believes is most likely to break in if one of the top six teams fall. The Bears were listed as No. 7 in the NFC behind the Packers, Eagles, and even the 5-6 Rams.

"Too close to leave out of the picture, especially since they currently sit in the No. 2 spot. The Bears defense is excellent, but the offense is inconsistent. They are hot right now with four straight wins, but they still have three road games and their two home games are against the Patriots and Jets," said Kirwan of the Bears. (NFL.com)

Boozer practices, could play Wednesday

Bulls top free agent acquisition Carlos Boozer said that he felt "pretty good" after taking part in his first contact practice as a bull on Monday. He said it was too early to know whether or not he will be able to play on Wednesday when the Bulls take on the Magic at the United Center, but several people associated with the team are reportedly cautiously optimistic that it will happen.

"I felt I had a pretty good day of practice," Boozer said. "My hand felt pretty good. There were a couple times it got hit, which was good to see how that felt. It was a little sore. But overall, it was a good day." (ChicagoBreakingSports)

Denver Nuggets fall in me vs. Nuggets challenge

Denver Nuggets fall in me vs. Nuggets challenge

The Denver Nuggets have been hot of late, winning seven of their last 10 games against pretty stiff competition. However, they were no match in a tough virtual matchup on Friday night. 

CSN Chicago associate producer Adam Yingst took on Nikola Jokic and company in #MeVsNuggets, a challenge in which the person watching must eat more chicken nuggets than Denver has field goals. 

Fighting a cold, Yingst powered through 41 chicken nuggets to seal the victory over Denver. If that isn't reminiscent of the Michael Jordan flu game, then we don't know what is. 

Watch this impressive accomplishment and catch some funny outtakes in the video above.
