  • 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,

  • 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

  • Report: Athletes at Rio Olympics 'will literally be swimming in human crap'

    Seven years ago the Rio de Janeiro government promised to clean up the water before the 2016 Olympics. Not only did they fail to clean it up -- it has actually gotten worse. According to the New York Times, recent tests by government and independent scientists have found the city's waters to be full of diarrhea-causing rotaviruses and drug-resistant "super bacteria," among other pathogens. This is the same water in which Olympians will sail, windsurf and -- yes -- swim starting on Aug. 5. "Foreign athletes will literally be swimming in human crap, and they risk getting sick from all those microorganisms," local pediatrician Dr. Daniel Becker told the Times. "It's sad, but also worrisome." The

  • How releasing Alex Rodriguez and Mark Teixeira would impact this season and next

    News broke last Thursday that, if they decide to sell, the Yankees have considered releasing Mark Teixeira and Alex Rodriguez. Given the lack of production from both players, an argument can be made that the team might even be better without them anyways. If the Yankees do end up releasing one or both of the formerly great players, there will be a domino effect in this season’s roster and next. Release Just Alex Rodriguez In this scenario, the Yankees immediately free up the DH spot, moving Carlos Beltran out of right field and into his true position at this point in his career. Aaron Hicks, who has struggled this season but might benefit from some regular playing time, would take over everyday

    On Monday, Dion Waiters agreed to a one-year, $2.9 million deal with the Heat, far less than most people thought he would get as one of the few significant free agents still on the market. It seems clear, based on the market, that the kinds of offers Waiters was hoping for weren’t out there for him.

  • Thunder renounce Derek Fisher

    Derek Fisher is already stumping for his second head-coaching job. Fisher has done plenty since retiring as a player — getting hired by the Knicks, getting fired by the Knicks and in between being attacked by Matt Barnes and finding another controversy about player relations. All the while, Fisher counted against the cap for the Thunder, his last NBA team. Oklahoma City finally renounced him to sign Alex Abrines. Albert Nahmad of Heat Hoops: This is one of my favorite salary-cap quirks, explained in further detail here. These are becoming fewer and further between, because teams are using cap room more frequently as the salary cap skyrockets. Gone are the days of a team operating above the cap

  • 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

For years, football fans everywhere have tried to solve the riddle of the 'Omaha' call, only to come up empty. The frustration has finally come to an end though because Rodgers spilled the beans during a recent appearance on the HBO show Any Given Wednesday. During the interview, host Bill Simmons asked Rodgers who he tries to emulate at the quarterback position.

  • 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

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.

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.

While it’s certainly possible that happened, according to Charles Boehm of Soccer Wire, there was massive unrest in the locker room and U.S. international Clint Dempsey was near the top of the list of unhappy players. Boehm’s source told him that the situation got so bad that Dempsey completely avoided communicating with Schmid and would only speak with two members of the club’s staff instead. 2017 will be the final year of his contract with Seattle and according to the report, he’s ready to leave.
