Pochettino: Spurs rout a present for my wifeby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveTottenham celebrated Christmas with a six goal romp at Everton on Sunday.Mauricio Pochettino’s side had to come from behind at Goodison Park after Theo Walcott swept home Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s low cross from Gylfi Sigurdsson’s defence-splitting pass.Everton’s lead was short-lived as Son Heung-min produced a sublime equaliser from a tight angle following a mix-up between Kurt Zouma and Jordan Pickford.Dele Alli put Spurs ahead for the first time after reacting first to Pickford’s save from Son, then Harry Kane made it 3-1 when Kieran Trippier’s curling free-kick hit a post and rebounded into the England captain’s path.In an entertaining game, Christian Eriksen’s sublime first-time shot extended Tottenham’s lead before Sigurdsson scored a consolation against his former club.Son added the fifth and produced the cross for Kane to make it six, yet victory came at a cost for the free-scoring visitors.Pochettino revealed why 6-2 is a special scoreline: “It’s my present for my wife.”We got married 26 years ago. And a fantastic way to celebrate tonight.”On Deli Alli, who was injured after a clash with Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, he added: “He didn’t feel a big problem. Maybe a little bit tired from Wednesday. I hope it’s not a big issue. It was a precaution.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say

Former Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III won the Heisman Trophy in 2011 and is one of the most accomplished players in BU history. He’s had some rough sledding in the NFL the past two seasons, but this morning he returned to where he played his best football. Griffin is back at Baylor for the Bears’ Pro Day today, and he got a workout in beforehand with one of his former wide receivers, Lanear Sampson.We wonder if Griffin will throw at all during the Pro Day as an extra arm for receivers running routes. Even if he does, he won’t be the most-watched QB at the event. That title goes to current BU signal caller Bryce Petty, who is trying to raise his draft stock.
Auburn Sand Pit WorkoutToday was definitely not a lazy Sunday for some of Auburn’s football players. Tigers’ wide receiver Dhaquille Williams and a couple of his teammates spent some time working out in a sand pit. It’s 92 degrees in Auburn, Ala., today. So it was probably a pretty rough workout. “It’s going to pay off,” Williams said. Auburn opens its 2015 season Sept. 5 against Louisville in the Georgia Dome.
