Mark Emmert says public losing confidence in NCAA

The American public is losing confidence in the governance of collegiate athletics, NCAA president Mark Emmert said Monday, creating a significant problem for his organization.

Emmert cited data collected by the NCAA showing that 79 percent of people polled said big schools put money ahead of student-athletes, 69 percent considered those universities more of a problem than the solution, and 51 percent said the NCAA is part of the problem.

“The NCAA members, my staff and those schools have got to get our arms around it fast,” Emmert said. “I don’t think this is some little blip that’s going to go away over time. This is a real question of whether or not the universities and colleges, through the association, can manage their affairs.

“And I don’t think anybody should take it lightly. I’m sure not.”

Beernerdness: While I limp to the finish line of Sober October (29 days down, two to go, and it hasn’t been too bad, thanks to my wife/partner in temperance), I thank all of you for helping fill the column with your beer choices. It’s Nathan Gross of Raleigh, N.C., today: “I am lucky with the sheer number of great breweries in my backyard, but one that has stood out to me is an new-ish brewery in Charlotte, Blue Blaze Brewing.

The beer is really amazing. I’m a hop-head, but Blue Blaze’s Black Blaze Milk Stout really has me hooked. It’s got a coffee-like taste to it that isn’t off-putting and gives it enough depth to make it really interesting, whether you like coffee or even stouts at all. It’s not overly heavy and you can drink more than one in a sitting, which you can’t say about most stouts.” Excellent job, Nathan. Thanks.

Alex Bregman, you can play third base for my team any day. What a defender.flames_112

Lehtonen used to have some of the most innovative pop-culture masks in hockey

Since he won in the Joe Gibbs Racing No. 18 car at Kansas, that team will run for the owners championship — likely with Ryan Preece behind the wheel. Bell will be in the JGR No. 20, which also hopes to be among the final four in contention for the owners title.

Bell is used to running in multiple divisions on a weekend, as he has often done it at USAC and other sprint-car events.

There’s really nothing scarier than seeing a mild-mannered, completely average goalie suddenly being devoured by a ghost dinosaur.

Lehtonen used to have some of the most innovative pop-culture masks in hockey, including a beauty that featured The Bride from “Kill Bill” and Lil Jon. This one, which centers around Heath Ledger’s Joker, is his most frightening — in particular when Lehtonen would ask if you’d like to see his disappearing-goalie-stick trick.

But Steve Kerr chose to get cute, and left Javale McGee on the bench even while his team was bleeding points. There was no reason for McGee to play the same number of minutes as Thicc Klay Thompson. Mike Brown would have had JaVale in the game at the very least for offense-defense switches down the stretch. Instead, Ryan Anderson was allowed to roam free to the tune of three offensive rebounds.

It was shocking that McGee didn’t play in the wake of injuries to Green and Andre Iguodala. The Warriors were exposed as a thin team on Tuesday. When Golden State is reduced to playing with only three Hall-of-Famers at a time, the Dubs absolutely crumble under the pressure.

Bottom line: When the game is hanging in the balance, you want a champion on the court. McGee should have been out there.

Bower said he used to be a scratch golfer, and he has won several tournaments and a club championship. He said he has adapted to the committee’s system relativcanadiens_757_597548fd896a91fe-180x180ely easily, “although it took time to get used to the process.” This year, Bower said he is “fine-tuning my routine and applying an extensive amount of data to make sure we make the best decision.”

Can they actually make the Stanley Cup playoffs?

Sources said the league looked into the matter and learned that Olshey’s hand gesture was directed at a close friend, who is a fan of the Clippers, which is why no punishment was issued.

As for the scuffle with Beal, Green said he’s still not over how everything went down.

“I’m still watching that video over again, trying to figure out what I did wrong,” he said.

According to the Elias Sport Bureau, the Golden Knights are the only franchise in NHL history to have three goalies with at least two wins through the first eight team games of a season.

Over the past four seasons, the eighth-place team in the Western Conference has averaged 92 points. Vegas already has 16 points in nine games. To earn 92 points, the Golden Knights would need 76 in their final 73 games (.521 points percentage).

Curry and Golden State got handed a second home defeat at this early stage of the season, falling 115-107 to the Pistons on Sunday night as Avery Bradley scored 23 points for Detroit.

“It just has to matter enough. Right now it just doesn’t seem to matter. Our guys are lacking in energy and focus and discipline,” Kerr said. “We finally started caring with six minutes left when we were threatened and we immediately cut it to three because we cared. But the right team won, karma was in the right place tonight.”

Tobias Harris hit a 3-pointer with 1:27 remaining that all but sealed it after Kevin Durant fueled a late Warriors rally.

Smith has been the athletic director at Ohio State since 2005, having previously served in the same capacity at Arizona State and Iowa State. He has served on the NCAA committee on infractions, NCAA executive committee, NCAA football rules committee and NCAA men’s basketball selection committee. He was a member of Notre Dame’s 1973 AP national championship team.canadiens_398_6f5baf9f451fa5c1-180x180

Texans vs. Seahawks, recapped in a 2-minute read

What happened: The Seahawks beat the Texans 41-38 in one of the most entertaining games of the season.

How it happened: It was a tight game, and it was fun as hell from start to finish. The fourth quarter was particularly thrilling. The Texans managed to score on the Seahawks defense not once, but twice, with Watson touchdowns to Lamar Miller and DeAndre Hopkins.

Anything else? Most Texans players protested during the national anthem. It came as a response to Texans owner Bob McNair, who made controversial comments about player protests on Friday.

The Seahawks challenged a third down Russell Wilson pass that was ruled incomplete because they wanted it to be a fumble instead. It was recovered by Luke Willson and gave the Seahawks a first down.

Garcon had just two catches for 17 yards before leaving Sunday’s game in the third quarter with a neck injury. He has a team-best 40 receptions for 500 yards and led the NFL in receptions in 2013, when he caught 113 passes for 1,346 yards while with the Redskins. His neck injury is not expected to keep him out of next Sunday’s game against the Cardinals, who are 3-4 and without starting quarterback Carson Palmer. The 49ers then play host to the offensively inept Giants, who are just 1-6, before entering their bye week.

With a rookie quarterback in C.J. Beathard and injuries piling up on both sides of the ball, first-year 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan says his team has “to be strong-minded.”

“I think guys did take a step forward from last week with a few things, especially on defense. We really have to take care of our bodies and get the team healthy, not just on Sundays but throughout the week. We have to find a way to get some of these guys back. It’s going to be that way all year. We have to find a way to get better. There’s no secret message I can say about it. The guys who get better will help us, and if you don’t, we’re going to get worse.”blues-017

NFL players, other outraged athletes react to Texans owner Bob McNair’s ‘inmates’ comment

ESPN reported Friday morning that Houston Texans owner Robert McNair made recent comments in which he compared NFL players to prison inmates at an NFL owners meeting in mid-October.

Kerr was also asked his opinion on the Colin Kaepernick situation and ongoing protests during the national anthem in the NFL.

A last-minute pick-six in the Dallas-Washington game also went against the books. With the Cowboys leading 26-19 with 21 seconds to play, Dallas safety Byron Jones returned an interception for a touchdown, pushing the final score over the posted total of 46.5 and causing loud groans in the sportsbook office at the Westgate SuperBook.

“That hurt,” Westgate assistant manager Ed Salmons said. “We needed the under.”

“In tonight’s appearance he saved our butt on numerous occasions,” Carlyle said. “We told him not to accept being here as a backup. We want him to compete. That’s where the competition between the two goaltenders is unique. But it’s a benefit to us if we can have a 1-A and 1-B.”

Anaheim captain Ryan Getzlaf left the game in the second period with what Carlyle described as an upper-body injury and will be evaluated on Monday.

“I thought (Carolina) had great jump in the second period and that was a hard one to grind out,” said Miller, who had three point-blank saves in the overtime. “We were able to hold onto it and that was nice.”

Corey Perry scored the only goal in the shootout.

The question is whether Sean Payton will be comfortable handing the ball to his best running back with the game on the line down the road. The Saints’ coach benched Ingram for nearly a full game last year after fumbling issues.

Former major leaguer Gabe Kapler named new Phillies manager

The majority of Texans players kneeled during the national anthem prior to Sunday’s game in Seattle.

“I never meant to offend anyone and I was not referring to our players,” McNair’s statement said. “I used a figure of speech that was never intended to be taken literally. I would never characterize our players or our league that way and I apologize to anyone who was offended by it.”

Texans receiver DeAndre Hopkins and rookie running back D’Onta Foreman sat out Friday’s practice in response to McNair’s comment.

McCarron, taken in the fifth round of the 2014 draft, is in the final season of his rookie contract. However, the Bengals could retain his rights next season because he did not spend enough time on the active roster as a rookie to accrue a year toward free agency. An arbitrator will have to decide whether he is a restricted or unrestricted free agent in 2018.

The “value” column reflects the likely upside that player would have in standard leagues if he becomes a starter: QB1 (top 10), QB2 (11-20), bench (worth a speculative add), waivers (not worth adding as a free agent).

The Hurricanes went ahead exactly five minutes later when Faulk beat Darling with a bullet from the high slot.

Kase gave the Ducks an early lead when he lifted the puck over Darling’s right shoulder from the right circle with 9:12 remaining in the first.

Grant made it 2-0 with 2:46 left as he beat Darling five-hole from the slot.

“I mean this league has problems right now and they don’t know how to get out of the way of them.”

Goff’s lineage was less American royalty than All-American, as the son of Major League Baseball catcher Jerry Goff. There was never any quotes about “thinking he’s arrived” after Goff’s freshman season, particularly after going winless against FBS opponents.

Looking at the statistics from each junior season, both Goff and Rosen have a green light to air it out, averaging more than 40 throws per game. With completion percentages above 60 and an average of more than eight yards per attempt, the stat lines are solid and the yards per game totals are high enough to rank among the best in the country when graded out against their peers. Even for a quarterback, both Goff and Rosen have what basketball statistics would determine is a high usage rate.

“We need to see a guy jump in the stands and sit in a seat? I mean, come on. What are we doing here?” Francesa said. “This is what the league needs, right? The league is in a state of panic is what it is right now. They’re playing in front of stadiums they can’t believe have empty seats in them, their ratings aren’t any good; the quality of play is lousy. Even (Sunday) night, I’m watching Atlanta and New England and the game’s a bore.”

Francesa was not done there. “No one has been a closer follower of the league in the last 40 years than I have been,” he added. “I’ve done it my whole life as an adult. The league is in trouble right now. A lot of trouble.

Francesa said the NFL likes to tell everyone they are fine but cited CBS and Disney stocks being down and ratings dropping 15% over the last two years before lauding Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.

It’s hard not to point the finger at Cincinnati’s offensive line. After losing Whitworth and Kevin Zeitler in free agency

For this team — which has receivers like Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills, plus Jay Ajayi at running back — to rank 32nd overall on offense (with 261 yards per game) is a travesty. To me, the blame can be placed on the quarterback play the team has received thus far. Jay Cutler posted a passer rating of 78.8 through six games, with seven touchdowns, five picks and 5.53 yards per attempt. This kind of ineffectiveness would be understandable if the team had no weapons, but that’s not the case in Miami.

It’s to the credit of Adam Gase — one of the best young coaches in the NFL — that the Dolphins are 4-2 despite carrying a point differential of -20. I would expect things to turn around with backup Matt Moore under center this week, after Cutler cracked his ribs in Week 6. If nothing else, this season should further clarify how much injured quarterback Ryan Tannehill brings to the table.

After ranking 13th on offense in 2016, Cincinnati has plummeted to 29th. Andy Dalton, who is posting a career-high interception rate (4.2 percent) and a passer rating of 83.7, is on pace to be sacked 50 times, while the ground attack has been limited to 81.8 yards per game and 3.3 per carry, despite the presence of Joe Mixon, Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill. Dalton is not the kind of quarterback who can successfully overcome protection issues and an ineffective run game.

It’s hard not to point the finger at Cincinnati’s offensive line. After losing Whitworth and Kevin Zeitler in free agency, there was an opportunity for former first-round pick Cedric Ogbuehi and former second-rounder Jake Fisher to step up, but the third-year pros have failed to make their mark. When they drafted Ogbuehi and Fisher, the Bengals surely did not envisitigers_070-115x115on having to rotate a well-worn veteran like Andre Smith in with them. Given the collection of skills players in Cincinnati, this offense should be much better — and I think the O-line is holding the Bengals back.

Thomas was selected with the third overall pick in the 2007 NFL Draft.

The biggest note of that draft, of course, was that Thomas had eschewed the pomp and circumstance of Radio City Music Hall in favor of fishing with his old man. So you knew right away, this dude was special.

He immediately took over the left tackle spot, helped lead the Browns that year to a 10-6 record and probably thought, We’ve got this team on the right track! Except Cleveland hasn’t enjoyed another winning season since. In fact, they’ve only eclipsed five wins during this span once — going 7-9 in 2014 — and haven’t even sniffed the postseason. Yet still, prior to Sunday’s season-ending triceps tear, Thomas didn’t miss a snap. NOT. ONE. SNAP!

Chris Thompson found the end zone for the fifth time in six games last Monday night against the Eagles. But he totaled just 12 touches in a game where Kirk Cousins attempted 40 passes in a negative game script. The Redskins coaching staff seems to be holding true to comments from earlier in the season about limiting Thompson’s workload because of his size, which is concerning for his value going forward, especially with Rob Kelley back healthy. Right now, Thompson is averaging 11 touches per game, which includes Week 6 when he logged a season-high 20 touches (16 carries) as the team’s “primary” back with Kelley inactive.

Thompson has been awesome for owners to this point as his 85.9 fantasy points rank him seventh among running backs in standard scoring. That’s exactly why you should sell him now, before his production regresses. It’s really his incredible 7.5 touchdown rate that’s totally unsustainable. Thompson’s fantasy points per touch of 1.3 are on another level and likely won’t hold up. Even Tevin Coleman, who led running backs in fantasy points per touch last season, had a rate of 1.13. And with games coming up against the Seahawks and Vikings, Thompson’s market value is set to plummet in the next few weeks.
