Usain Bolt and Tyreek Hill have been going back and forth for a while over who’s fastest. Well, the race between the country’s fastest football player and the world’s fastest man, may soon become a reality.

Bolt told TMZ that all the jawing between the two can be put to bed—that if Hill is really serious, “We can figure it out.” 

Why not? If people are willing to pay social media influencers to box, why not pay to watch a foot race?

Speaking of the aforementioned fight. 

After their eight-round boxing match went the distance Sunday night, Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley appeared to agree to a second bout — on one condition.

While jawing with Paul and his older brother, Logan, during his postfight interview, Woodley immediately called for a rematch after Jake Paul was awarded a split-decision victory. Paul denied the request initially but opened up to it once Woodley committed to getting a tattoo that will read, “I love Jake Paul,” something they agreed upon in the buildup to the fight.

At Auburn, the football coaching staff is reportedly taking a “blue collar approach” with their team. Apparently, on the elevator, there’s a sign that says it’s for “injured players only.” Everyone else must take the stairs. Coach Bryan Harsin says he takes those same stairs about 18 times a day, which can end up being a hearty leg workout.
