Video: Jalen Rose Calls Out High School Sports Hero Skip Bayless – ESPN

We heard about this last week, but hadn’t seen the video. Here’s more on the story behind the video from TheLostOgle.com A few weeks ago, ESPN talking head and Oklahoma City native Skip Bayless took to Twitter to complain about Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook. The comments were really nothing new or insightful, just the typical “Westbrook’s not a point guard!!!” rhetoric that people say or think or tweet (me…

Video: Kimbo Slice vs. Brian Green Knockout?

Skip ahead to about 3:50 seconds into this video to watch the, uh, “action.” The final round of this fight is almost over, Brian Green seems to be winning easily and suddenly the hype that is Kimbo Slice kicks in (Vegas money?) and he lands two soft uppercuts and–surprise!!–Green is down. We haven’t seen that kind of fake falling since last night’s Champion’s League Soccer Game. And not just down,…

D'Andrea Davis
December 16, 2011

It’s been a while since we had a youth sports embezzler on our site. This time it’s the manager for the cheerleading squad at St. Pius High School (NM) who was somehow able to slide $18,000 into her business account before anyone noticed. The real question isn’t how D’Andrea Davis got away with it over the past 10 years (account friends of mine say that oversight of these mini-nonprofit groups…

World Anti-Doping Agency: Mexican Soccer Players Tested Positive for Steroids Because of “Tainted Meat”

Add “tainted meat” to the list of acceptable excuses for testing positive for steroids. And, it’s even easier to claim that if you come from a country where the government sucks at preventing drugs from being given to the cattle by ranchers . . . like in Mexico. The WADA says it believes the under-17 players on Mexico’s national team (which beat the US by a score of 4-2 last…

NBA Lockout Update: Won’t Anyone Think of the Oddsmakers?

Right now, NBA Commissioner David Stern is only cancelling pre-season games. Who cares, right? To borrow a phrase from former star Allen Iverson, “We’re talking about practice, man. I mean, how silly is that? We’re talking about practice!” But soon, we will be talking about cancelling regular season games (currently scheduled to start on November 1) which could result in a shortened season.

As Many as 24 #FresnoState Football Players Implicated in #Welfare Fraud Case

Well, I guess that shows you the difference between Fresno and Miami. In Miami, the football players at The U received cash and hookers. In Fresno they allegedly got free food stamps. Yeah, that sounds about right.  On the plus side, because so many players are involved that will launch Fresno State into the top ten of our Disgusting Dozen college football rankings.

#Miami Internal Investigation: 8 Football Players, Including QB #JacoryHarris Believed to Have Committed #NCAA Violations

Sources are saying those eight players have been declared ineligible, but could still play for the Hurricanes this season. How? The NCAA can start the reinstatement process almost immediately (think how fast they moved on Auburn’s Cam Newton last season) and could mean players will only have to sit out a game or two . . . or maybe the entire season. Who knows?

SI Column: Fix “Miami” Problem by Putting Compliance Officers Under NCAA Control

Right now, each university has an NCAA regs compliance officer that reports to the school. You can sorta see why they might have a conflict of interest if they find something bad is going on. But what if those compliance officers actually worked for the NCAA? That’s the recommendation of Josh Luchs, a former agent who admitted paying college players. And while we’re at it, a suggestion we came up…
