  • Lawsuit: Baylor players gang raped student, school knew

    The allegations against Baylor University and its football program continue to get uglier by the day. Most recently, a woman who has filed a lawsuit against the school is claiming several players gang raped a fellow student in 2011. Jasmin Hernandez, a former Baylor student who was raped by a football player in 2012, filed a lawsuit in March against the university, former athletic director Ian McCaw and former head football coach Art Briles for failing to comply with Title IX law. The suit was amended last week and a woman identified as “Jane Roe 4” was added. A portion of the amendment reads as follows, according to Suzanne Halliburton of the Austin American-Statesman: Plaintiff is informed,

  • Report: Kevin Durant told Russell Westbrook he’d re-sign with the Thunder

    Cheered all night long by his basketball-crazed new fan base, Kevin Durant knocked down a 3-pointer on the Americans’ first touch and slammed home a dunk the very next time down the floor. What a performance for Golden State’s latest big star to help lead the U.S. Olympic team past China 107-57 on Tuesday night for a third dominant victory in as many exhibition games. Durant, who finalized his two-year contract with the Warriors on July 8, scored all 13 of his points during a 13 1/2-minute span of the first half while playing his first game at his new home, Oracle Arena. Booed in Los Angeles a couple days back, Durant received a far more friendly reception in the Bay Area he will now call home.

  • Tom Wilhelmsen kicks all of the Pirates out of his bar after they refuse to pay tab

    Baseball, like all sports, is a team game. Baseball, like other sports, can sometimes be taken over by just one player who wills their squad to victory. For the Seattle Mariners, for so many years, that player was Felix Hernandez, who would put the team on his back and try and drag them kicking and screaming to a 1-0 victory. Saying Happy Felix Day doesn’t ring necessarily as loudly and as enthusiastically as it once used to. Don’t get me wrong, I still love seeing the King take the mound, but he is a different King this year. And from the get go of the game, it looked like he was going to be a bad king who needs to be overthrown. The Pirates jumped out to a quick and tidy three run lead in the

  • Rory McIlroy rips 345-yard bomb during long drive contest and still loses

    An early disappointment for Rory McIlroy at the 2016 PGA Championship, but thankfully for him, it was all in good fun. Arriving on the tee ahead of the competition’s annual long drive contest early on Tuesday, Rory smashed a 345 drive that looked a virtual certainty to win the contest. Indeed, he was leading for most of the day. But then a dramatic twist to the story. More than six hours later, South Korean player An Byeong Hun snuck a drive 347 yards — just two yards past McIlroy’s — to snatch the prize from Rory’s hands in the final moments. Tough break. Rory spoke to ESPN about it afterwards: “I’m a little bit gutted,” McIlroy said with a smile. “That would have been a mini victory this week

  • Target Leaving IndyCar After 27 Seasons With Chip Ganassi

    Target will leave IndyCar at the end of this season after 27 years with Chip Ganassi Racing that included 11 championships and four Indianapolis 500 victories. The exit comes as Target is examining all of its marketing platforms under new chairman Brian Cornell. Target is also the primary sponsor of Kyle Larson in NASCAR's top Sprint Cup Series and will return to his car in 2017. Target's relationship with Ganassi is one of the longest in any racing series, and the retail giant was a key player in helping Ganassi build his organization. Target not only sponsored Ganassi's first car as a team owner, it eventually became a partner as the Ganassi team grew to one of the top two players in open wheel

    TMZ Sports has obtained insane footage of ex-NFL quarterback Marcus Vick -- Michael Vick's brother -- literally running from cops during an incident back in April ... before being captured at gunpoint.  It all started at a gym in Newport News, Virginia -- when cops were questioning the 32-year-old about a warrant out for his arrest stemming from a civil case.  Vick spoke with cops for nearly 10 minutes before suddenly deciding to make a run for it -- shoving 2 cops out of the way, breaking tackles -- and SPRINTING down the street.  Cops gave chase ... but Vick is WAYYYYYYY FASTER (he ran a 4.42 in the 40 at the 2006 NFL Combine).  It seemed like he was going to get away -- but the cops stayed

  • The Tim Lincecum experiment is the most depressing story in baseball

    I’m not sure exactly when I started hoping the Giants would sign Tim Lincecum. Maybe it was when Jake Peavy was lit up by the Mets, or maybe it was when he couldn’t get out of the second inning against the Cubs. Maybe it was when Matt Cain got hurt, with the Giants resorting to Albert Suarez, a spring afterthought. But I was on board. My exact words might have been, "Can’t hurt!" Those words were not accurate. Lincecum is officially the saddest story in baseball right now. After allowing one run in six innings for his first start, Lincecum has thrown 24 innings over six starts, allowing 50 hits, nine home runs, and 30 runs. That’s not a typo — more than two hits per inning and about a home run

  • 10 Things I Think About the 2016 Seattle Seahawks

    The MMQB's Andy Benoit spotlights Seattle Seahawks' starting quarterback Russell Wilson. 1. Russell Wilson is the NFL’s most fascinating case study entering this season, his fifth as a pro. For his first three and a half seasons, Wilson was a sandlot style player who would abandon clean pockets in hopes of making a magical play out of structure. The results were good and bad. Wilson worked receivers open late in the down, but he also left a lot of open receivers on the field in the first place. Then, in late 2015, Wilson suddenly matured. Between Weeks 11 and 15, he threw 21 touchdowns versus just one interception while completing 69 percent of his passes to post a rating of 131.2. Operating

Every single conversation about the NBA right now includes the Golden State Warriors. Let's just take a moment to soak that in. Magazines, TV, newspapers, radio, conversations.

    White Sox ace Chris Sale was scratched from Saturday night’s start against the Tigers due to a confrontation he had with White Sox coaches and front office staff over the 1976 retro uniforms the club was to wear. Sale used a knife to cut up his uniform as well as the uniforms of some other players, protesting the club’s decision to wear them. The White Sox suspended Sale five games “for violating team rules, for insubordination, and for destroying team equipment.” Sale spoke about the incident for the first time, as MLB.com’s Scott Merkin reports.

  • Reserve Ohio State DL Dylan Thompson academically ineligible for the fall

    “Do something. And underline that. Do something.” Those were the words of Urban Meyer back in May when discussing the status of Dylan Thompson with his Ohio State football program.  Fastforward two months, and Thompson did indeed do something, albeit it’s a something that’s not even remotely positive. At the Big Ten Media Days Tuesday, the OSU head coach announced that Thompson is academically ineligible for the fall semester.  That means the defensive lineman likely won’t play at all in 2016, and it could mean it’s the end of the road for the player in Columbus. Thompson came to the Buckeyes as a three-star 2014 signee, rated as the No. 21 strongside defensive end in the country and the No.

  • With chilling history, Baltusrol is one of America's great courses

    On a chilly February night in 1831, Baltus Roll, a farmer who led a quiet life alongside his wife, Susanna, was murdered by two men seeking a rumored buried treasure. Billed by the New York newspapers as the “Crime of the Century,” the alleged killers, Peter Davis and Lycidias Baldwin, never found any lucrative cache as they ransacked the cottage and hogtied and strangled Roll to death. Fifty years later, Louis Keller, publisher of the New York Social Register, purchased the rolling farmland in the hills 20 miles west of Manhattan and established the fifth-oldest golf club in the U.S. Honoring the man who once farmed the land, Keller joined the names of Baltus Roll and thus fabled Baltusrol Golf Club came to be. Against that chilling backdrop — Roll’s tombstone rests five miles from the clubhouse and reads in addition to his name, “Murdered,” — the 98th PGA Championship begins Thursday on the Lower Course.
