— In this two-part edition of "After Deadline" with The Daily Citizen, sports writers Devin Golden and Chris Whitfield discuss the BCS National Championship game between Auburn and Florida State, Dalton State College's men's basketball team beating No. 17-ranked Faulkner State and Friday's Dalton versus Northwest Whitfield basketball games in the first part, which is below.
In the second part of this week's "After Deadline" with The Daily Citizen, Golden and Whitfield go one after the other picking the 32 movies for the "Greatest Sports Movie Ever" tournament. Whitfield picks first, Golden picks second and each pick 16, plus Golden picks a 17th for a "play-in game" because he can't leave off "Space Jam."
