The investigation of how Meyer handled domestic violence accusations against an assistant has drawn attention to his contractual obligation to report violations of Ohio State’s sexual misconduct policy. It’s a type of specificity becoming increasingly common in college athletic contracts, especially for highly paid coaches who are standard-bearers for their universities. Sports law experts say such provisions clarify expectations for those employees and can make it easier for schools to fire them without compensation if they fall short. less FILE - In this Dec. 2, 2017, file photo, Ohio State coach Urban Meyer stands along the sideline during the first half of the team's Big Ten championship NCAA … [Read more...] about Ohio State suspends coach Urban Meyer for first 3 games
Helene St. James Detroit Free Press Published 6:41 p.m. UTC Jun 12, 2018 It took no time at all to write in the first name on my list of greatest Detroit Red Wings of all time as we compiled our bracket for the Detroit G.O.A.T. tournament. Numbers two and three, however, I debated. That Gordie Howe is the No. 1 seed is a no-brainer: he is synonymous with the franchise. He is considered one of the greatest hockey players of all time. Among his myriad of accomplishments, he won four Stanley Cups with the Wings. The next two names were going to be Steve Yzerman and Nicklas Lidstrom – but in which order? I know that if I asked either of them, they would put one another in the No. 2 spot. I ultimately went with Yzerman — like Howe, he came to be the face of the franchise. He was the quiet, unassuming teenager who led the team out of the “Dead Wings” era and onto glory. He was named captain at 21 and served in that role for two decades. He became known … [Read more...] about For Detroit Red Wings G.O.A.T. list, is it Yzerman or Lidstrom No. 2?

By Jonathan Feigen, Houston Chronicle Published 10:37 pm, Tuesday, April 10, 2018 The Rockets wanted to gain many things from their penultimate regular-season game, but none were as important as to get through the "dress rehearsal" while staying healthy. That hope ended midway through the second quarter when Luc Mbah a Moute left the floor with a dislocated right shoulder. Mbah a Moute, who dislocated the shoulder while bracing himself on a fall this season, immediately grabbed his shoulder after putting in a hard dunk on the Lakers' Thomas Bryant. He went directly to the locker room and was quickly diagnosed with a dislocation. Mbah a Moute was to play a significant role for the Rockets in the post-season not only as a backup small forward, but at power forward in small lineups. Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni had said before Tuesday's game that he wanted to use his post-season rotation, and played Mbah a Moute at power forward with Gerald Green, Eric Gordon and Chris Paul in … [Read more...] about Rockets’ Luc Mbah a Moute leaves game with dislocated right shoulder
