Bruce Pearl suspended by the SEC

November 19, 2010 in Blog by Josh Ward

Tennessee men’s basketball coach Bruce Pearl has been suspended for the first eight SEC games this season by league commissioner Mike Slive.

Slive released the following statement:

“The suspension from coaching duties has been imposed after a careful review of the facts established during the NCAA’s investigation and reported to the SEC commissioner Mike Slive said Friday in a statement. “I am extremely disappointed in the nature of the violations involving Coach Pearl and the Tennessee men’s basketball program. The penalty applied to this circumstance is significant, which is consistent with the directive approved by the SEC membership in 2010 granting the commissioner authority to act in such cases.”

Lots of Cam Newton talk on Wednesday

November 10, 2010 in Blog by Josh Ward

I’m off today (dealing with a little bug), but Will West is holding it down between 12-3 eastern time.

There is a lot of discussion surrounding Auburn quarterback Cam Newton, who allegedly chose Auburn because “the money was too much.” That report came Tuesday night from Joe Schad of ESPN.com.

Cecil Newton, Cam’s father, would neither confirm nor deny that story when he was reached by Thayer Evans of Fox Sports.com.

Bryan Matthews from AuburnUndercover.com will join Sports180 at 1:05 on Wednesday to discuss the story.

By the way, gambling odds on this week’s Auburn-Georgia game have been taken down in several places.

Randy Moss waived by Minnesota Vikings

November 1, 2010 in Blog by Josh Ward

Wide receiver Randy Moss has been released by the Minnesota Vikings, according to Mike Lombardi of the NFL Network.

The Vikings went 1-3 with Moss, who joined the team after he was traded by the New England Patriots last month. Minnesota sent a 2011 third round pick and 2012 seventh rounder to New England in exchange for Moss.

Why was Moss waived after only four games with the team? Perhaps his bizarre press conference on Sunday after Minnesota’s loss at New England is the reason.

UPDATE: Moss hasn’t been waived yet. And the decision to let him go might have caused coach Brad Childress to lose the locker room.

Derek Dooley calls on Rommel

October 25, 2010 in Blog by Josh Ward

Have you seen the video of Derek Dooley comparing the Tennessee Vols to the German troops on “D-Day” during World War II?

GoVolsXtra has the video, which you have to check out.I could try to summarize it before you watch, but that wouldn’t do it justice.

The video became viral during the afternoon with several writers across the nation weighing in with their thoughts.

Stewart Mandel of Sports Illustrated linked to the story with the following note: “If you had any remaining doubts Derek Dooley is a bit of a loon.”

Clay Travis of FanHouse said the following: “From one history grad lawyer to another: Derek Dooley you can’t compare your team to Germans at D-Day. Even if it’s innocent.”

Gregg Doyel of CBS wasn’t impressed: “Derek Dooley just compared his team to the D-Day invasion, when thousands of Americans died. Kiffin’s gone, and the UT coach got dumber?”

Wes Rucker of the Chattanooga Times Free Press reminded everyone to see the humor in it: “My cousins in the military, who had ancestors also fight in American wars, are laughing about Dooley. Get over yourselves, people.”
