Sport Tar Heels' Mack Brown: What college football coach's daughter will be on 'Jeopardy!' on Friday?
Broncos DC Ed Donatell back home recovering after COVID-related hospitalization
Broncos defensive coordinator Ed Donatell required hospitalization after contracting the coronavirus, according to the team. The second-year Denver DC was hospitalized last week but discharged Sunday. Donatell, 63, has been battling COVID-19 symptoms since Oct. 31 and has missed the past three games. Donatell, who is in his third stint with the franchise, is one of a few Broncos staffers to have contracted the virus. Running backs coach Curtis Modkins did so in October, and offensive line coach Mike Munchak was in the team’s COVID protocol.
Fans on social media have been known to have fun at the expense of "Jeopardy!" contestants for whom sports knowledge might not have been a strong suit.

Katherine Ryan, a non-profit executive and the daughter of North Carolina football coach Mack Brown, will try her hand at the game of answers and questions. She’s sure to have a lot of support from Tar Heels’ followers.

For his portion of the “C’Mon Man!” segment, Moss highlighted a major flub from Fayetteville High School in its Arkansas state playoff game against Little Rock Central. Facing 4th-and-32 with a 35-34 lead and just seconds remaining in the game, Fayetteville quarterback Bladen Fike for some reason took a knee deep in his own territory. There were two seconds remaining on the clock, so Little Rock Central took over on downs and kicked a game-winning field goal.
Even if there isn’t a full sports category, there is usually a question or two related to athletic endeavors within the game material. Sometimes the clues go for something as simple as terminology but they also can include the intersection of sports with popular culture.
