So I came up with this: NASCAR turning mild into wild for fans. I like getting wild and mild in the same headline.
As usual, I'm doing the men's and women's college-basketball roundups, and I need to pick and NFL story (we don't have room for both AFC and NFC). And I'll edit stories as needed.
I found this in a recruiting story: All three can signing binding letters-of-intent Feb. 3, at the start of the NCAA signing period for football. I changed signing to sign.
I struggled with the Colts-Jets headline, and it wound up: Jets’ ‘D’ can be a big roadblock for Colts’ offense.
I had to go to several web sites to find game results for the basketball roundup (we merged the men's and women's roundups together and led with the women). I just send the basketball roundup, so that's a load off my mind.
We have a little over an hour before deadline.
It's still more than 45 minutes before deadline, but proofs have been read. We're done.
