CHIP’S CLIPS: The best and worst of Super Bowl 50

So the old man goes out on top. Super Bowl 50 will likely go down as Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning’s swan song, and he will be going out a winner — even if brother Eli wasn’t all that thrilled about big brother getting his second title.

SPORTS GALORE: Michigan paying Jim Harbaugh to win

For the past 13 months, Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh has produced a steady stream of headlines. Some of them are by his own doing and some of them are strictly due to the 24/7 media cycle, which includes social media.
