The Penn State CoverUp Emails Emerge

Spanier and PaternoDetails in the Penn State sex abuse scandal continue to disturb, even after ex-assistant football Jerry Sandusky was convicted last week. Sandusky was found guilty of 45 counts of sexually abusing 10 different boys, after apparently being shielded by Penn State officials for years.Over the weekend, emails between the school’s former president Graham Spanier, athletic director Tim Curley, and retired vice President Gary Schultz emerged, regarding a graduate assistant’s report that he saw Sandusky sexually assaulting a boy in the team’s locker room in 2001.The emails revealed that Curley and Schultz had originally intended to report the assistant’s allegation, but decided not to. Spanier told the pair that he was supportive of their plan, but feared they might “become vulnerable for not having reported it.” More than a decade later, Spanier’s worst fears have come true. Upon the public revelation of Sandusky’s sexual abuse Spanier was forced out of the university, as was longtime football head coach Joe Paterno before he passed away. Curley and Schultz are both currently facing criminal charges for perjury and failing to report child abuse.It is said that Curley decided not to report the assistant’s claims after speaking with Paterno, leading to questions about the coach’s involvement in the cover-up. CNN specifically cited an email from Schultz to Curley on Feb. 26, 2001, 16 days after the graduate assistant, Mike McQueary, told Paterno about the apparent assault. Schultz suggests notifying Sandusky and his charity organization, as well as the Department of Welfare, which is responsible for investigating child abuse.However, the next day, Curley contacted Spanier, saying that after considering that course of action and talking to Paterno, he was “uncomfortable” with that plan. “We would work with him. …. If not, we do not have a choice and will inform the two groups,” Curley said via email. Spanier co-signed, calling Curley’s approach a “humane and a reasonable way to proceed,” though he warned of the consequences. “The only downside for us is if message isn’t `heard’ and acted upon and we then become vulnerable for not having reported it, but that can be assessed down the road.”Just weeks after being removed from his position, Paterno passed away, adding to the Penn State tragedy. Accusations of the coach’s involvement will likely be limited, even as Schultz and Curley are locked in a legal struggle. They have a status conference for their case scheduled for July 11, and have asked for their charges to be dismissed.

LeBron James Some Cavs Teammates Refuse to Stay In

LeBron James (Keith Allison/Flickr)In a year full of bold political moves by athletes, LeBron James and several of his Cleveland Cavaliers teammates are refusing to stay at Trump Soho in New York City. The hotel, though not owned by President-elect Donald Trump, is branded with his name and caused a few of the Cavs to seek other accommodations as they prepare to take on the New York Knicks Wednesday, Dec. 7.According to Cleaveland.com, Cavs’ general manager David Griffin said arrangements are being made for what could include up to seven of the 14 traveling teammates to stay at another unnamed hotel. Trump SoHo had been booked ahead of the 2016 presidential election and Griffin noted it is the only NBA-quality hotel that could guarantee rooms for the team’s family and friends in case the Cavs make the postseason.James’ endorsement of former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton explains his unwillingness to stay at the hotel. In October, Atlanta Black Star reported the power forward believed Clinton was the only candidate who understood the struggles of oppressed Americans.In the wake of the Nov. 8 election results, many Cavaliers players have expressed their disappointment. On Instagram, shooting guard J.R. Smith questioned how he would explain the outcome to his young daughter. Echoing ESPN analyst Jalen Rose’s proclamation that NBA teams will stop visiting the White House, reserve forward Richard Jefferson made the same statement on Snapchat after the Cavs met with Obama to celebrate their championship in November. While speaking to Complex last week, Iman Shumpert declared he would not visit the White House under the Trump administration.“I can’t get caught up in the racial, sexist bull—- he’s got going on,” Shumpert said.” That’s his personal thing.”The Cavs join at least three other NBA teams that won’t stay in the Chicago and Manhattan hotels bearing Trump’s name, ESPN reported. They include the Dallas Mavericks, Milwaukee Bucks and Memphis Grizzlies. The Illinois-based hotel, in contrast to the one in New York City, is owned and operated by Trump’s company. read more

Key to the game Will OSU throw the ball downfield against Nebraska

OSU Redshirt Junior Quarterback J.T. Barret (16) drops back into the pocket for a pass during the game against Northwestern on Oct. 29, 2016 at Ohio Stadium. The Buckeyes won 24-20. Credit: Mason Swires | Assistant Photo EditorThe sixth-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes square off in the biggest home game so far in 2016 against the No. 10 Nebraska Cornhuskers in primetime in Ohio Stadium on Saturday. The Scarlet and Gray are honoring the 1916 Big Ten championship team and Chic Harley, who served during World War I, with a special-edition, throwback uniform.The jerseys will be a new look for OSU, but many rather witness a change in the style of play than what the Buckeye offense has displayed the past four weeks. Enhanced by excellence at times, and marred by stagnation on other occasions, the passing game for OSU has been riddled with inconsistency, which has kept fans on edge. At Wednesday’s press conference, Meyer indicated that a breakout in the downfield passing game is coming from redshirt junior quarterback J.T. Barrett.“I’m ready if you are,” Meyer said.In last week’s 24-20 victory over Northwestern, OSU attempted just a handful of passes downfield and only registered one completion over 20 yards, which set up the game-winning score. Barrett said that it’s difficult for the receivers to run past defenders when they’re playing 10 to 12 yards off the ball — a look that Northwestern often showed the Buckeyes.One of OSU’s touchdown drives against Northwestern took just nine plays to go 94 yards in under three minutes. Two drives later, OSU milked the clock for more than eight minutes and scored after 15 plays. Meyer said whether it be up-tempo or wearing a defense down throughout a drive, he just cares about scoring.“If we’re getting certain defenses that we don’t like (in up-tempo), then you get stuck in a bad play,” he said. “Throughout the course of the game we can go to tempo any time that we want.”Barrett might face his toughest challenge of the year going against a Nebraska secondary that has ball-hawking tendencies. Nebraska leads the NCAA in interceptions with 15, including two returned for touchdowns. Safeties Nate Gerry and Kieron Williams lead the team and the Big Ten with four interceptions, making the Cornhuskers one of the most difficult teams to throw downfield against.Nebraska allowed one pass for more than 20 yards in its loss to No. 8 Wisconsin the previous week. However, The Cornhuskers surrendered 5.9 yards per carry on the ground against the Badgers. Redshirt freshman running back Mike Weber and junior H-back Curtis Samuel have been heavily involved in the passing game and have been given a combined 25 to 30 carries each game.Establishing an effective running game with Weber and Samuel might force Gerry and Williams to play up, therefore opening up the second level for receivers like redshirt sophomore Noah Brown.“We definitely work on the deep ball every week in practice. We try to put it in the game plan every week,” Brown said. “We’re very confident in the deep ball and we’ll get it done.”Kickoff is at 8 p.m. read more

We have found a balance in the team, especially with the competitive attitude,” said Mourinho at a pre-match press conference.“We are creating plenty of chances, we are changing how we attack opponents and protect ourselves in situations.“Two difficult matches, both away, and we have six points.

Robertson denies a nervous Liverpool

first_imgThe Reds footballer says the team is still thinking on lifting the English Premier League title at the end of the season.Liverpool has dropped seven points in their last five matches in the English Premier League.And yesterday they drew 1-1 against West Ham United, making many people question if they can last in first place to lift the title.The Reds are currently in first place of the table but Manchester City is dangerously close now.“I wouldn’t say nerves are showing, did anyone say that when Manchester City picked up no points at [Crystal] Palace and Leicester?” Liverpool player Andrew Robertson told Sky Sports.“I don’t think they did.”“A lot of people talk about pressure because we’ve not been in this position but it’s February,” he explained.“Everyone needs to relax and try to enjoy the run-in. I’m sure many other teams would want to be in the position that we’re in now.”“Nerves aren’t showing in the changing room. It’s been two poor results and poor performances – that happens during a long season,” he said.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“We might look back on [the draw with West Ham] as a good point.”“We need to get back on track by winning games and playing better football,” Robertson continued.“We can’t worry about Manchester City. They’re in a good moment just now, we’re having a wee blip and just need to try and get over the line in a couple of games.”“Divock [Origi] had a chance in the 92nd minute [against West Ham] and if that goes in we’re talking very differently, but we keep going, we dust ourselves down,” the footballer said.“There is still a long way to go.”Andrew Robertson, the best in the business…Agree? ➡️ https://t.co/VscalqhBul pic.twitter.com/YY7khDuqnl— Premier League (@premierleague) February 4, 2019last_img read more
