A list of the worst scandals in college sports

first_img•POINT SHAVING AT CCNY, 1947-51. The City College of New York men’s basketball team won both the National Invitation Tournament and the national championship in 1950. Then a point-shaving scandal that spanned 86 games dating to 1947 was discovered. Thirty-two players from seven schools were arrested. CCNY turned from powerhouse to trivia answer. Players from Kentucky were also involved, but the Wildcats program survived to remain a powerhouse.•THE BC THREE, BOSTON COLLEGE, 1978-79. BC basketball players Rick Kuhn, Joe Streater and Jim Sweeney were persuaded to fix nine Eagles games during the season. Kuhn and two money men were handed 10 years each in prison.•SMU GETS THE DEATH PENALTY, 1986. Southern Methodist boosters funneled thousands of dollars to football players through a slush fund that was administered by school officials, including former Texas governor Bill Clements. The NCAA gave the program the “death penalty”—forcing it to the sidelines for the entire 1987 season—and the Mustangs have never regained their national stature.•HOT ROD, TULANE, 1980s. Star forward John “Hot Rod” Williams was accused of accepting more than $8,000 to shave points in several games. He was later acquitted, but the school dropped the team until 1989.•THE FAB FIVE and ED MARTIN, MICHIGAN, EARLY 1990s. Several players, including star forward Chris Webber, were paid by a booster and factory worker, Martin, from his gambling operations. All records, including two Final Fours, featuring the so-called Fab Five recruiting class, were vacated, Michigan was put on two years of NCAA probation and head coach Steve Fisher lost his job.•ACADEMIC FRAUD, MINNESOTA, 1990s. Clem Haskins’ tenure with the Golden Gophers was brought down by a widespread academic fraud. Former manager Jan Gangelhoff claimed she had written papers for at least 20 players. Minnesota’s records were vacated and the program was docked five scholarships. Haskins, the AD and several other officials lost their jobs.•GEORGIA ACADEMIC SCANDAL, 2002. Georgia head coach Jim Harrick and his son, Jim Jr., provided high grades to players in classes they never or seldom attended and paid players’ expenses. The elder Harrick, who led the Bulldogs to NCAA tournament appearances in 2001 and 2002, resigned and his son was fired.•MURDER IN TEXAS, BAYLOR, 2003. Bears basketball transfer Patrick Dennehy was slain by teammate Carlton Dotson. Coach Dave Bliss instructed his players to lie to the NCAA by telling investigators that Dennehy was dealing drugs. Dotson pleaded guilty to murder, Bliss was fired and Baylor self-imposed penalties of a one-year postseason ban and a loss of scholarships.•NO MORE HEISMAN, USC, 2005. Reggie Bush, winner of the 2005 Heisman, was stripped of the award after it was revealed that his parents were paid hundreds of thousands of dollars by an agent. Southern California coach Pete Carroll left for the NFL, but the Trojans were stripped of 30 scholarships and given a two-year postseason ban.•TATTOO U, OHIO STATE, 2010. Buckeyes football coach Jim Tressel admitted that he knew several of his star players were trading memorabilia for cash and tattoos in violation of NCAA rules, but sat on that information for 10 months until after the players participated in a 12-1 season that resulted in a Sugar Bowl win over Arkansas. Tressel was forced to resign, Ohio State vacated the 2010 season and was hit with NCAA probation and a loss of scholarships.•THE BOOSTER, MIAMI, 2011. A total of 73 Hurricanes football players have been implicated in the latest scandal to hit the Miami program. A booster, Nevin Shapiro, subsequently jailed for running a pyramid scheme, allegedly dispensed money, prostitutes, cars and vacations to the players. Shapiro said coaches and university officials knew of his gifts. The case is pending before the NCAA.•BOBBY PETRINO, ARKANSAS, 2012. Petrino, the Arkansas coach, initially said he was riding alone when he was injured in a motorcycle accident. It was subsequently learned that Jessica Dorrell, a former Razorbacks volleyball player, was with Petrino and had had an extramarital affair with him. Petrino had paid Dorrell $20,000 and set her up with a job in the athletic department. Petrino was fired. (AP)—Years of child sex abuse at Penn State by longtime assistant Jerry Sandusky may represent the worst scandal in the history of college sports. The NCAA slammed Penn State with an unprecedented series of penalties July 23,, including a $60 million fine and the loss of all coach Joe Paterno’s victories from 1998-2011. While it’s hard to compare Sandusky’s crimes, and the institutional problems described in the Louis Freeh report released on July 12, to other cases involving unacceptable benefits or point-shaving, this is a list of some of the scandals that drew massive attention prior to Penn State. FAN REACTION—Susan DelPonte, center, of State College, Pa., reacts to a television in the HUB on the Penn State University main campus in State College, Pa., as the NCAA sanctions against the Penn State University football program are announced Monday, July 23.

Allie…Allie…Allie…The Greatest of All Time

first_imgNo, not that Ali, but the achievements and accomplishments are no less amazing. This is Charles “Buddy” Allie of whom I speak. Allie is quite possibly one of the most dominant USA Masters Track and Field Champions in Pittsburgh, nationally, and for that matter, the world. Having just turned the young age of “65,” Allie rejoiced at a grand celebration at the Radisson hotel atop a brand new “Harley,” which he sprung for himself, that brought the house down for his three hundred plus family and friends in attendance. Prior to the event “Buddy” was ranked number one (1) in the world in the 60 — 64 age group in all of his running events, the 60, 100, 200, and 400 meters. (Karl Lewis who?) And he has competed in International World Championship Meets in Spain, Italy, England, France, Puerto Rico and Australia, just to name a few. He currently holds three World Records and one American Record. If that’s not enough (and trust me you can never get enough for track stars, they can go all day) in 2005 he was elected to the USA Masters Track and Field Hall of Fame and was selected USA Masters Track Athlete of the Year for his age group in 2008, 2009, and 2010.By now I know most of you are reasonably impressed. Not that Buddy expects that of you. He is one of the most quiet, unassuming superstars of his trade. As a matter of fact you could be in a room with him for “65” hours and you would never know he was a track phenom. That said, allow me to put this in some perspective for you. After turning “65” at a Potomac Valley Track Club Meet earlier this year, Allie shattered world records in the 200 and 400 meters with unbelievable times of 24.85 and 56.28; besting listed world records of 25.20 by American great Steve Robbins in 2008 and 56.37 by German legend Guido Mueller in 2004. (For all you now old and almost dead ex-city league track stars that means “Mr. Allie” is still kickin’ some world class butt while you’re catching a jitney from point “A” to point “B”.)Now you might think the story ends here but it doesn’t, for two reasons; #1. because the story ends when I say it does … and, #2 and way more importantly because with all those stats that’s not really what makes “Buddy” great. But here’s what does. He’s been a devoted husband to his beautiful and wonderful wife Jackie for “40 years” (now that’s a record for ya) a great father to Angie and B.J. A lifelong resident of Pittsburgh’s Northside, a retired middle school teacher at McNaugher, Columbus, Allegheny & Frick and girls basketball, soccer and softball coach; an Oliver High School and Hampton University Track Scholarship graduate; and not to be overlooked a well loved member of the Pittsburgh “Satin & Soul” Ballroom Dancers and the Pittsburgh “United Rays” Corvette Club. (And yep he’s the fastest there too… (oh shut-up Milton and Greg just enjoy the story).All that said he still finds time to provide leadership, support and inspiration to other senior athletes on staying fit and living a healthy life style as well as mentoring and training young athletes and special elite athletes such as world and Olympic Champion Kevin “Freight Train” Parker.Needless to say, I could continue to write about this local legend until I turn 65, which won’t be long from now, but as sure as I’m closing this chapter, “Buddy” is somewhere in the world about to break another world record … (Mama, there goes that man again!) Allie … Allie … Allie!!! MASTERS CHAMPION—Charles “Buddy” Allie, right, wins the World Masters Championship in Sacremento, Calif. in July 2011. He finished first in the 100 meters in the 60-64 age group. (Courtesy Photo) last_img read more

That inswinging yorker at 144km/h to get rid of Justin Langer. I’ve lived every moment and enjoyed, with you, while you were there on the field. My heart wrenches seeing you retire. My childhood is official coming to an end.”Advertisement At the end, the fan expressed his gratutide towards Irfan for his contribution to the cricketing world: “Thank you for everything you’ve given me, India and the world. You’ll always be the best for me. Thank you Irfan,” the fan wound up the message.Irfan replied with a goodwill gesture: “Thank you buddy. Wish you all luck for your career.”Irfan Pathan made his debut in Test cricket back in 2003 against Australia. However, the 35 year old was not picked up in the Men in Blues squad for eight years, but continued to play in domestic cricket for Baroda and also in 9 seasons of the Indian Premier League.

SANTA ANITA-BASED AMERICAN PHAROAH, FIRING LINE & DORTMUND RUN 1-2-3 IN KENTUCKY DERBY; ESPINOZA, BAFFERT TEAM FOR ONE LENGTH WIN

first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (May 2, 2015)–Santa Anita-based American Pharoah, Firing Line and Dortmund carried the hopes of Southern California to Churchill Downs Saturday, and finished 1-2-3 in the world’s biggest race, the 141st running of the Kentucky Derby.A winner of Santa Anita’s Grade I FrontRunner Stakes three starts back on Sept. 27, the Bob Baffert-trained American Pharoah sat a close third and won by one length under Victor Espinoza, who followed up on his win aboard California Chrome a year ago by taking his third overall Kentucky Derby. For Baffert, who last won the Derby in 2002 with War Emblem (also ridden by Espinoza), it was his fourth overall triumph in the Run for the Roses.Off as the 5-2 favorite in a field of 18, American Pharoah paid $7.80, $5.80 and $4.20. Owned and bred by Zayat Stables, LLC, American Pharoah notched his fifth win from six starts.For Ahmed Zayat, who had finished second in the Derby on three occasions, with Pioneerof the Nile in 2009, Nehro in 2011 and Bodemeister in 2012, the victory was nearly overwhelming.“This is a dream come true,” he said. “We are beyond blessed.”Baffert, who rattled off three Derby wins in a five-year period with Silver Charm in 1997, Real Quiet in 1998 and War Emblem in 2002, the win was especially sweet as he overcame a Derby drought that was approaching 13 years.“Once we got him out there, I heard ‘My Kentucky Home,’ I knew we were almost there,” said Baffert. “I told them (jockeys Espinoza and Martin Garcia, who rode Dortmund) in the paddock, I was like Pacquiao and Mayweather, I know what they are going through right now. They want to get it on…”Espinoza, 42, whose first Derby win came in tandem with Baffert’s War Emblem, simply said “I feel like the luckiest Mexican on earth.”Ridden to perfection by Gary Stevens, Firing Line, who was second in his six furlong debut at Santa Anita on Oct. 25 and second to Dortmund in the Grade III Robert B. Lewis Stakes two starts back Feb. 7, overhauled Dortmund in deep stretch but was second best, finishing three lengths in front of the Santa Anita Derby winner for the place. Conditioned by Santa Anita-based Simon Callaghan, Firing Line was off at 9-1 and paid $8.40 and $5.20.Dortmund, who broke his maiden first time out at Santa Anita on Nov. 2, won the Grade I,        $1 million Santa Anita Derby on April 4 and thus entered the Derby undefeated six starts. With Martin Garcia up, he controlled the pace through fractions of 23.24, 47.34, 1:11.29 and 1:36.45, tired a bit late and finished third, a diminishing neck in front of Frosted. Also trained by Baffert, Dortmund was the second choice at 4-1 and paid $4.20 to show.

Tottenham enter Champions League semis despite 3-4 defeat at Manchester City

first_imgAfter an astonishing encounter at the Etihad Stadium, Tottenham Hotspur reached the semi-finals of the Champions League on away goals following a 4-3 defeat to Manchester City on Wednesday.Spurs, who won the first leg 1-0 and progressed after the tie finished 4-4 on aggregate, will play Ajax Amsterdam for a place in the final against Liverpool or Barcelona after one of the most remarkable matches in the competition’s history.Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino predicted the meeting with the exciting and young Dutch side would be an “open and exciting game” but it will take something for it to offer more entertainment than this non-stop wave of drama and emotions.It started in manic fashion with four goals in the opening 11 minutes of the game. It was a gripping spectacle right up until the dramatic finale when City had a stoppage time goal from Raheem Sterling, which would have sent them through, ruled out for offside after a VAR review.City fans had celebrated what looked like the goal that sent them into the last four before the replay confirmed that Sergio Aguero was offside in the build-up.It was a perfect example of the benefits of using technology but it was also hard on Pep Guardiola’s side who had been the stronger over the 90 minutes.”It is cruel but it is what it is and we have to accept it,” said Guardiola, whose dream of winning four titles this season is now over.His counterpart, Pochettino, who was without his top scorer Harry Kane, said his team had shown all their character.advertisement”My players are heroes. We made history,” said the Argentine, whose team reach the last four for the first time since the creation of the Champions League and since their 1962 appearance in the semi-finals of the European Cup.The contest exploded into life in the fourth minute when Sterling put City in front, receiving a ball from Kevin De Bruyne on the left flank and then cutting inside onto his right foot before beating Hugo Lloris with a beautiful, curling shot into the far corner.A disguised reverse pass that gives De Bruyne the space to set up SterlingSkill of the Day: @BernardoCSilva #UCL | @Mastercard pic.twitter.com/yjLTmw35VKUEFA Champions League (@ChampionsLeague) April 17, 2019Three minutes later though, Spurs drew level when City’s French defender Aymeric Laporte’s attempted clearance fell straight at the feet of Son Heung-min whose low shot flew in off the leg of City keeper Ederson.Laporte was also at fault for Spurs’ second in the 10th minute when he gifted the ball to Lucas Moura, the Brazilian feeding Christian Eriksen who found Son, the brilliant South Korean finishing superbly into the far corner.STRUCK AGAINThere was no respite as City responded immediately as Aguero fed Bernardo Silva and the Portuguese winger’s left-foot shot deflected off Danny Rose and beat the wrong-footed Lloris to make it 2-2 on the night.AGÜEROOOOOOOOOOO!!!#UCL pic.twitter.com/kKFih5HS6IUEFA Champions League (@ChampionsLeague) April 17, 2019The dangerous Sterling struck again in the 21st minute to level the aggregate score, ghosting in at the back post to convert a low cross from De Bruyne that had zipped across the face of the goal.A thundering strike from Aguero in the 59th minute put City in the driving seat again the Argentine blasting in at Lloris’s near post after a magnificent burst forward and perfectly weighted and timed pass from De Bruyne.City, who went out at the same stage to Liverpool last season, were stunned though in the 73rd minute when Spurs substitute Fernando Llorente bundled in a Kieran Trippier corner to restore the London club’s advantage through away goals.Tottenham = semi-finalists for the 1st time since 1961/62 #UCL pic.twitter.com/APzKVcZhtdUEFA Champions League (@ChampionsLeague) April 17, 2019With officials unsure if the ball had bounced off the Spaniard’s hand or rolled off his hip in the goalmouth scramble, VAR was called into action and the goal stood for Spurs a decision Guardiola questioned after the game.Then came the stoppage time video torture for the home support Aguero burst down the right flank and delivered a low cross for Sterling to slot home what would have been his hat-trick goal.The VAR call was correct and the Premier League champions were out to the delight of Pochettino and his players who celebrated wildly in front of the travelling Spurs support.”They deserve a lot of praise. I am so happy because the effort is massive from the squad who have lived with everything. If we have one thing to describe this team, we always keep the same spirit, ideas and philosophy and that is the most important thing,” Pochettino said.advertisementNow the pair will meet again on Saturday at the same venue in the Premier League, with plenty at stake for both teams.It should be another classic but it is hard to see how it could be quite as engrossing as this one.Also Watch:last_img read more
