NCAA championship 2013: Louisville vs Michigan…Louisville wins!

NCAA championship 2013: Louisville vs Michigan...Louisville wins!

The Louisville Cardinals beat the Michigan Wolverines, 82-76, to win the NCAA Division I men’s basketball championship Monday night at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. The game will surely go down in history as one of the most exciting NCAA championship of all time. The game had sick dunks, crazy passes and 3-pointers from around half-court. Michigan’s backup point guard, Spike Albrecht, stole the show early-on, coming off the bench and draining four 3-pointers from way, way back. Albrecht’s career-high before Monday’s game was seven points, averaging just 1.8 points per game. He scored 17 points last night. Louisville came back big on the shoulders of Luke Hancock, who went 4-for-4 from beyond the arc…

Rutgers basketball coach Mike Rice fired for abusing players

Rutgers basketball coach Mike Rice fired for abusing players

Rutgers finally fired basketball coach Mike Rice on Wednesday after a videotape showing him shoving, grabbing and throwing balls at players and using anti-gay slurs during practice aired on ESPN. The video, broadcast Tuesday on ESPN’s Outside the Lines, led to harsh criticism from New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Lebron James. With increasing criticism on a state and national level, Rutgers terminated Rice after three disappointing seasons. Rice apologized for his actions (with a lot of fake tears) at a news conference outside of his house. The video came to light through former director of player development Eric Murdock. It shows Rice hurling expletives and anti-gay slurs at his players. Murdock claims he was…

Dr Phil interviews Tuiasosopo re Manti Te’o hoax

Te’o hoaxster tells Dr Phil

Dr Phil Ronaiah Tuiasosopo interview: Manti Te’o hoaxster Ronaiah Tuiasosopo told Dr Phil he maintained an Internet relationship with the Notre Dame college football star by pretending to be a woman named “Lennay Kekua” because he was “deeply, romantically” in love with Te’o. Throughout the college football season, Te’o spoke openly about his long-distance relationship with “former Stanford student Lennay Kekua,” who was supposedly injured in a car accident and recovered only to be diagnosed with and die from leukemia. It was THE story of the college football season and it helped fuel Te’o’s run at the Heisman Trophy, but it was a sham. Deadspin ran a story last month proving “Kekua” never existed, prompting…

Manti Te’o: hoaxed or hoaxster?

泰歐攏是假

Notre Dame football player Manti Te’o claims he is the victim of a cruel hoax after Deadspin ran a story proving the cancer victim Te’o spoke openly of dating when she died this season never existed. If Te’o is to be believed, this means that he communicated via phone and Twitter for nearly a year with a false Internet persona created by a male family friend. Either that, or he participated in an elaborate lie that fooled the likes of CBS, ESP, AP and the New York Times for an entire football season. The heartbreaking tale of Te’o’s long-distance relationship with “former Stanford student Lennay Kekua” had been the inspirational story of the college football…

Tommy Tuberville dines and dashes on Texas Tech

Tommy Tuberville dines and dashes on Texas Tech, Kliff Kingsbury new coach

Kliff Kingsbury is the new head football coach for the Texas Tech Red Raiders after Tommy Tuberville made another classless exit, leaving Lubbock for the University of Cincinnati. Tech fans are happy to see Tuberville go, but they can’t help but feel insulted by how he did it. Tuberville, who in 1998 said he would have to be carried out of Ole Miss in a “pine box” only to leave for Auburn a week later without saying goodbye to his players, did it again on Friday, when he left a table of recruits at a Lubbock restaurant without saying a word and never came back. The next day, the recruits and everyone else heard that…

USC Trojans football: Lane Kiffin needs to grow up

USC Trojans football: Lane Kiffin needs to grow up

USC Trojans football: controversy continues to dog coach Lane Kiffin! On Thursday, the Pac-12 fined USC $25,000 because a student manager had deflated footballs used in a game against the Oregon Ducks. Deflated footballs are easier to throw and catch, but it didn’t matter. The Trojans fell to the Ducks 62-51. The USC Trojans claim the student manager acted on his own and under orders from no one on the coaching staff. That student manager has been fired. But it’s not the type of controversy the Trojans under Lane Kiffin can afford. The Trojans have been banned for postseason play for two years due to NCAA violations. This year is Kiffin’s first crack at a…

Penn State football deserves worse than death penalty

Does Penn State football deserve the “death penalty”?

Penn State football is facing suspension or perhaps even the “death penalty” as the NCAA considers a range of sanctions in the wake of news that top university officials shielded serial child abuser and former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky from investigation for years to preserve the football program’s image. The NCAA has only punished one college football program with the so-called “death penalty,” which is a ban from competing in the sport for at least one year. Southern Methodist University received the NCAA’s harshest punishment in 1987 when it was caught paying its “student athletes” to play, after having already been punished several times for recruiting violations. The SMU Mustangs, historically a strong football program,…
