Los Angeles prep school Harvard-Westlake closed both its campuses this afternoon after former NFL offensive lineman and Harvard-Westlake alum Jonathan Martin tagged the school in an Instagram post, in which he made threats against those he said bullied him.

It’s February and there are no sports going on right now except for hockey and various Olympic events that Americans are eating shit in. If not for these circumstances, it’s likely nobody would care too much about what Bill Polian is saying on TV. But we don’t have anything better to do, so let’s roast this old-timer.
Andrew Luck has not played competitive football since 2016, because of an injury he suffered in 2015, thanks to numerous and nebulous setbacks and relapses. So, now that it’s 2018, how’s the onetime all-world QB doing?

Former NFL GM and current ESPN insider Bill Polian has added to his portfolio of sports takes, which already includes “Randy Moss and Terrell Owens aren’t Hall-of-Fame players,” “I’m the only one who knew Tom Brady was good,” and “Tyrann Mathieu is the devil.” Yesterday, he cooked up this spicy one: NFL draft prospect…
