  • Texas Woman's University volleyball coach quits after 8 players hospitalized

    The volleyball coach at Texas Woman's University has stepped down in the wake of news that eight of her players had to be hospitalized for a muscular condition. The Denton Record-Chronicle reported that head coach Shelly Barberee submitted her resignation late Friday. The program has been under scrutiny recently after eight volleyball players were admitted last weekend for rhabdomyolysis, a breakdown of muscle tissue that releases potentially damaging proteins into the bloodstream. "Although the investigation remains underway, Texas Woman's University's initial belief is that overexertion coupled with dehydration during practices last week caused these student-athletes to experience rhabdomyolysis," said Monica Mendez-Grant, vice president for student life, in a statement published on the school's website.

  • Usain Bolt Brought Up to 10 Women Back to His London Hotel Room

    It’s been an eventful month for Usain Bolt, who not only turned 30 and solidified his title as the fastest man in the world, but who also partied, made out, and possibly had sex with people who were not his longtime girlfriend while he was in Rio. PEOPLE now reports Bolt took his talents to London after the games, where he brought as many as 10 women back to his hotel room two nights this week. A source tells the magazine Bolt arrived at London’s Cirque le Soir nightclub around 1 a.m. Monday and “[continued] the party back at his hotel” with a group of club-goers.

  • Searching for tight end value in Fantasy Football drafts

    Let’s complete our analytics-based positional analysis this fantasy football draft season by focusing on tight ends and market share in order to hopefully find some sleepers and avoid some busts. A key is that the offensive system in place is not different this year, which hurts, for example, the market-share projection for Delanie Walker given that new OC Terry Robiskie is coming from an offense that threw 15.9 percent of passes to Atlanta tight ends last year.

  • The deeper implications of the A.J. Ellis trade

    The trade of a light-hitting backup catcher is normally about as inconsequential as it gets. The trade of A.J. Ellis by the Dodgers to the Phillies, however, is anything but that. Indeed, it may be the public manifestation of long-simmering, well, maybe “feud” is too strong a word, but a definite butting of heads between the team’s front office and its best player. While almost all of the clubhouse drama in Los Angeles has surrounded a talented but aggravating corner outfielder currently toiling in the minors, Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times wrote last night that the Ellis trade could very well be seen as the front office’s shot across Clayton Kershaw‘s bow: Kershaw’s preference of Ellis

  • Cubs' onesie trip might not be so comfy

    A miscalculation on the part of manager Joe Maddon might make for an uncomfortable departure Sunday from Southern California. Maddon didn’t realize that the Cubs’ series finale against the Los Angeles Dodgers was a day game until a few days ago, so Maddon and maybe a few other Cubs players might be sweating profusely as they prepare for their onesie trip to O’Hare International Airport. “I really thought us being here that it definitely would be a Sunday night (game),” said Maddon, who fears the temperatures at Dodger Stadium will touch the low 80s when they dress following Sunday’s game. The Cubs held their first onesie trip after Jake Arrieta threw a no-hitter here nearly a year ago on a Sunday night.

  • Hamilton gets another fresh power unit, up to 30-place grid penalty for Spa

    Lewis Hamilton has taken another fresh power unit ahead of the second Formula 1 practice session in Belgium on Friday, causing his grid penalty to rise to 30 places. Hamilton confirmed on Thursday that he would be taking a grid penalty at Spa for exceeding the number of permitted engine components for the season. The F1 drivers’ championship leader was forced to make unplanned changes earlier in the year due to issues on his power unit, making a grid drop inevitable later in the season. Mercedes confirmed on Friday morning that Hamilton had taken a fresh power unit for first practice for the Belgian Grand Prix, before taking the decision to take another new one for FP2 in the afternoon.

  • Kobe Bryant on how teams should see Warriors: “‘OK, lace ’em up. Let’s go.”

    For two decades, Kobe Bryant saw everyone and everything as an obstacle to overcome: The Pacers, Sixers, Nets, Magic, Celtics, Tim Duncan, Gregg Popovich, Smush Parker, a torn Achilles. It didn’t matter. Kobe’s work ethic and drive had him rising above it all. His focus hasn’t changed now. Kobe was on the Jim Rome show, and the topic of the new-look Warriors with Kevin Durant came up, along with the “woe is me” attitude of some players (and plenty of owners and GMs). “I would have thought less about myself if I looked at that move and said, ‘That’s unfair,'” he said. “If you’re a real competitor, you look at that and say, ‘OK, lace ’em up.

  • Wild Card race is on, and Mets are still in it

    Matthew Cerrone | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram Last night was a much-needed, awesome win against the Cardinals, who now lead the second Wild Card slot by 3.5 games over the Mets -- with the Marlins and Pirates in between. It's also worth noting that the Giants, who have lost 8 of their last 11 games, now lead the Cardinals by just one loss for the top Wild Card spot. The point is, despite all of the above teams stumbling through August, the Wild Card race is on in full effect, with five teams -- including the Mets -- eyeing two spots with 35 games to go. The Mets arrived in San Francisco last Thursday having lost two of three to the D-backs, two games under .500 and six games back of the Cardinals.

  • Despite guaranteed salaries, R.J. Hunter and James Young competing for Celtics’ final roster spot

    The NBA permits teams to begin the regular season with 15 players. The Celtics are the only team with 16 players who have guaranteed 2016-17 salaries. So, it’ll be an intriguing preseason in Boston, where the early battle lines are already being drawn. Adam Himmelsbach of The Boston Globe: Several league sources have indicated that second-year guard R.J. Hunter, third-year forward James Young, 27-year-old wing John Holland, and rookie forward Ben Bentil will compete for the last roster spot. Young and Hunter have guaranteed deals, Bentil has a partial guarantee, and Holland is nonguaranteed. This probably comes down to Hunter (No. 28 pick in 2015) or Young (No. 17 pick in 2014).
