>>Atlanta Deals With Heartbreak Again

(Atlanta, GA) — It was another rough night for Atlanta area sports fans. Georgia blew 20-7 lead in the third quarter of their National Championship Game loss to Alabama.

Nagy has been with Andy Reid for the last 10 seasons in Philadelphia and Kansas City.

He later apologized for the play and Wiggins accepted.

>>Warriors’ Green Fined For Criticizing Officials
