College Football Playoff presidents OK expansion evaluation
The College Football Playoff expansion could be a reality sooner than later. The 11 university presidents and chancellors met on Tuesday and authorized a continued evaluation of a proposed 12 – team playoff. The move was necessary in order to determine the feasibility of expanding to 12 teams.
“The four-team playoff has been a great success and I’m confident it will remain a success,” said Mark Keenum, the Mississippi State president and CFP board chairman. “Nevertheless, it is our responsibility to explore options to make it even better by increasing the number of schools that participate in it.”
In a meeting last week, the 12 – team proposal was presented to the presidents and chancellors including Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick and this summer. The next step will be taken in the “review” stage.
Keenum said the next step is a summer review phase that will “engage other important voices,” including athletes, campus leaders and coaches.
“We’re going to be just very deliberate and we’re not going to talk timing until we get the answers to all the feasibility issues and until we have a chance to to listen and talk to athletes, presidents, coaches, partners,” Penn State President Eric Barron said. “So it’ll take time.”
The new proposal does not address a new format or when possible expansion would take place. The earliest possibility, if everything falls into place, would be 2023. Depending on media rights contracts, it could also be as late as 2026.
Southeastern Conference Commissioner Greg Sankey issued a bit of a caution when asked about how soon a new playoff could be up and running.
“I would temper my expectations, and never say never, but we’ve got an opportunity to dig deeper as a group,” Sankey said. “Those answers are going to come. There were decisions made back in 2012, 2013, 2014 that guide us for 12 years. That’s reality. Can that change? I don’t know.”
Indianapolis will host this year’s national championship game at Lucas Oil Stadium.
“This has been vetted pretty carefully,” West Virginia President Gordon Gee said of the CFP proposal. “So almost every question you could possibly anticipate they had an answer for.”
Gee said the 12-team proposal “makes absolute sense” if all the pieces come together, and described there being unanimity among the presidents in the room about moving to the next phase of gathering more information. But Gee also said the group also expressed “that we now need to marinate this.”
Keenum said the meeting in a hotel at the Dallas-Fort Worth airport made him aware of numerous legal matters that have to be taken into consideration, along with getting extensive feedback.
“We have bowl partnerships with our six playoff bowls, every conference has affiliations with its own set of bowls and there are contracts that are in place already,” Keenum said. “We’re just past halfway under our current 12-year contract. What are all the legal issues that have to be addressed from that standpoint? We have a media partner right now, ESPN, and so … how does this impact that relationship with that particular provider, not only for the balance of the contract, but beyond.”
NBA PLAYOFFS: Ayton soars for last second alley – oop, Suns top Clippers
Deandre Ayton’s tip-in dunk from Jae Crowder led Phoenix to a 104 103 win over the Los Angeles Clippers Tuesday night in game two of the Western Conference finals. Phoenix was down by one with the 0.9 seconds remaining when Crowder threw a high pass on an out – of – bounds play on the baseline. Ayton came down the lane and stopped it over LA’s Ivica Zubac as the crowd went crazy with disbelief.
The referees spent about a minute reviewing the play before ruling the basket was good.
”The celebration and reaction were a little shaky,” Ayton said. ”Because I wasn’t sure what I did. I wasn’t sure if it counted.”
Phoenix a leads the series 2 – 0 with game three of the series in Los Angeles on Thursday night. The Clippers will attempt to rebound from a 2 – 0 deficit for the third time in this year’s playoffs.
The Suns were led by Cameron Payne with 29 points, Ayton added 24 points and 14 rebounds.

Report: NBA moving forward with foul changes for non-basketball moves
New rules are coming to the NBA for the 2021 – 22 season. That would eliminate foul calls on non—basketball moves by players on offense. Final discussion from the NBA’s competition committee and the board of governors will decide the implementation of the new rule.
The competition committee met earlier in June to discuss changes that would prevent players from using any unnatural shooting motions to draw fouls.
Officials will be trained to prevent the following techniques:
- a shooter launching or leaning into a defender at an abnormal angle
- a shooter kicking his leg at an abnormal angle
- an offensive player abruptly veering off his path into a defender
Officials will determine whether these actions will warrant no calls or offensive fouls.
Changes could debut in the Las Vegas Summer League in August.

College Baseball World Series: Texas extends CWS stay, knocks out Volunteers with 8-4 win
The Texas Longhorns were facing elimination Tuesday in the College Baseball World Series, but they were in no mood to return to Austin.
Texas relief pitcher Tanner Witt showed nerves of steel with the Longhorns on the verge of elimination. Witt got the call with two runners on base and one out when he began the process of shutting down the Volunteers.
Witt through 5 2/3 innings in his longest outing as a college baseball player, and the second seeded Longhorns eliminated Tennessee with the 8 – 4 victory.
“I love that big stage, big atmosphere,” he said. “I feel I only get better in those situations because that’s what I live for.”
Silas Ardoin provided the key hit — a tie-breaking, two-run single — and was part of a crucial double play that helped the Longhorns (48-16) pick up their first win in Omaha since 2014. No. 3 Tennessee (50-18), which lost its opener to Virginia 6-0, went two-and-out in its first appearance since 2005.
“Sometimes baseball is a crazy game,” the Vols’ Pete Derkay said. “First day we kind of just didn’t show up like we were capable of doing. Today, they were the better team.”
Witt allowed only three singles, walked none and struck out two. He pitched 31 – two – three innings and no Tennessee runners made it past first base after the fourth inning.
“Future of Texas pitching is in good hands,” left fielder Eric Kennedy said. “As a freshman he’s the most poised pitcher I’ve ever seen. Nothing fazes him. He’s been nails all season, and that just continued on the biggest stage.
“I know a lot of guys, if that was their first appearance, they would be walking a bunch of guys or not have their stuff. But he was able to do what he’s been doing all year.”
Secret recording has Wisconsin seniors criticizing Gard
The Wisconsin basketball team and head coach Greg Gard aren’t on the same page according to the Wisconsin State Journal.
The Journal received a 37 – minute audio file this week from a team meeting that included Guard and seven seniors. The newspaper says it received the recording anonymously and only a portion of the actual meeting was included.
During the meeting, forward Nate Reuvers tells Gard that “we don’t have a relationship” and that “I personally don’t think or feel like you care about our future aspirations.” Guard Walt McGrory tells Gard that “I don’t know if I’ll ever talk to you again after this.”
Gard issued a statement saying he has his “players’ backs” and is fully committed to their development.
“I care deeply about the student-athletes in our program,” Gard said. “I want nothing more than to help them and see them succeed on and off the court. Our program has a lengthy track record of doing both. But the path to a championship or to graduation is not always easy. Sometimes there are setbacks. Difficult conversations have to be had. Sometimes people just need to get things off their chest.”
Gard added that he was “incredibly disappointed” that a private meeting was “secretly recorded, edited and made public.”
“It shows a complete lack of care for our program culture and for the confidentiality that is owed to our student-athletes who wanted an opportunity to share their thoughts behind closed doors,” Gard said.
Athletic director Barry Alvarez, who is retiring at the end of the month, said in a statement that “Greg, his staff and his team have my full support as they look toward the 2021-22 season.” Chris McIntosh, who has been deputy athletic director since 2017, will be the new athletic director.
Ex-Creighton Bluejays men’s basketball assistant Preston Murphy gets show-cause penalty; program put on two years’ probation
Former Creighton basketball assistant coach Preston Murphy was hit with a two – year show – cause penalty for accepting improper payments that was uncovered by an FBI investigation.
The NCAA Division I Committee on Infractions announced during the bribery investigation that four Division I assistant coaches, including Murphy, accepted $6,000 payments from undercover FBI agents in 2019.
In a meeting with Christian Dawkins, a friend of Murphy, they agreed to steer players to Dawkins’ management company. Murphy resigned his position in November 2019.
Murphy’s lawyers have argued. He returned the money after the meeting.
According to the investigation, Murphy lied when he was asked in his school’s internal questionnaire whether he accepted any payments from an agent or financial advisor. Murphy was also asked if the accepted “anything of value” to make sure players went to a certain advisor or agent. Murphy claimed he did not, but later informed head coach Greg McDermott about the meeting and McDermott informed athletic director Bruce Rasmussen. Rasmussen in without informing his compliance department.
“The violations largely stem from individuals permitting personal relationships to cloud their judgment and influence their decision-making,” the committee said. “Specifically, the assistant coach prioritized loyalty to his friend, the agent associate; and the athletics director looked past alarming conduct based on his trust in the assistant coach.”
“It is noteworthy that within the public infractions report, the Committee stated, ‘that in the 100-year history of Creighton’s participation in Division I athletics, this is Creighton’s first Level I, Level II or major infractions case. As it relates to institutions, the absence of an infractions history is rare. As such, the panel affords significant weight to this (mitigating) factor.’ There is no postseason penalty imposed on the men’s basketball program, and none of our current or future student-athletes will be impacted,” Creighton said in a statement.
“We have used this as an opportunity for self-reflection, assessment, and improvement. As such, the Department of Athletics has enacted a series of reforms to policies and procedures, including an even more robust education and monitoring program, to ensure that our programs continue to adhere to the NCAA’s high ethical standards. Indeed, these actions, and the University’s willingness to cooperate on this matter, have been applauded by the NCAA enforcement staff. We are eager to move forward.”
NHL PLAYOFFS: Danault: ‘Legends are born in the playoffs’
LAS VEGAS – The Canadiens secured a 4-1 win over the Golden Knights on Tuesday night at T-Mobile Arena.

Following the game, forwards Eric Staal, Phillip Danault, Jesperi Kotkaniemi and Nick Suzuki spoke with reporters via Zoom, along with assistant coach Luke Richardson.
Staal on Suzuki’s outstanding play in the postseason:
He’s super competitive. Like a lot of guys on our team, his compete level is really, really high. Obviously, the skill set is there and the intelligence is there, but you need to have that extra compete and that level of competitiveness in order to make a difference. That’s the number one thing I love about him and all these guys – our compete and our willingness to do whatever it takes.
Naquin’s 3-run homer in 9th gives Reds 10-7 win over Twins
Cincinnati has been on the road for several days, but manager David Bell felt his team was ready for the Twins on Tuesday night.
Tyler Naquin went 4 for 4 with a three-run homer and the Reds defeated Minnesota 10 – 7 snapping a five – game losing streak. Wade Miley gave Cincinnati a strong start allowing just two runs in seven innings.
Amir Garrett picked up his fourth save the season with a scoreless ninth inning.
“We keep pulling for each other, keep showing up, keep playing hard,” said Naquin, who joined the Reds in February on a minor league contract.
Tucker Barnhart homered and added three RBI and Jesse Winker hit a two – run double for the Reds.
Starting pitchers Sonny Gray (right groin) and Jeff Hoffman (right shoulder) have been scheduled for rehab assignments. Gray is expected to rejoin the Reds next week after making one three-inning start for Triple-A Louisville. … Antone (right forearm) was activated from the 10-day injured list before the game, and OF Scott Heineman was sent to Triple-A Louisville.
Bryant’s HR sparks sputtering Cubs offense
CHICAGO — A few hours before Tuesday’s game, Cubs manager David Ross praised Kris Bryant for the approach on display in his plate appearances the previous night. Ross then had a prediction for reporters surrounding him in the Cubs’ dugout.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if he gets hot here real soon,” Ross said.
In the fourth inning, Bryant connected with a fastball from Cleveland’s Eli Morgan for a no-doubt homer that helped ignite a 7-1 victory at Wrigley Field. The blast snapped a prolonged power outage for Bryant and contributed to a much-welcomed offensive outburst that backed a strong start from Kyle Hendricks.
Yadi’s in town, but Rogers caught the winner
DETROIT — Tigers catcher Jake Rogers tried to model his catching game after Yadier Molina when he was growing up in Texas. So when the Cardinals catching great stepped to the plate at Comerica Park in the second inning Tuesday night, Rogers found himself a little star struck.
“I’m sure everyone says this,” Rogers said, “but he came up in the box and I’m like, ‘Man, it’s good to see you. I’ve watched you so many times over the years when I was young.’ I just said it was a pleasure to be back there with him and get to see him so up close. It was really cool. To be able to even share a field with him is an honor.”
Pirates rally for 6-3 win over skidding White Sox
Despite a solid performance from Lucas Giolito, the White Sox struggles continued as they dropped their fifth straight in a 6-3 loss to the Pirates on Tuesday at PNC Park.
“Tough little stretch, but I think that it’s just kind of like a test right now,” said Giolito. “Rough series and we dropped this first game. I think that maybe it’s a wake-up call we need. A huge home run by us, to give us the lead right there. I think that all we need to do is learn from these last few days, and come out a little more aggressive, a little bit more hair on fire.”
Coming into the matchup, Giolito had been dealing from the mound with five of his six previous outings being quality starts; he had held batters to a .190 average over that stretch. Tuesday’s series opener was his first matchup against the Pirates since he recorded the 19th no-hitter in White Sox history on Aug. 25, 2020.

LOUISVILLE, KY. – Following a five-run comeback by the Indianapolis Indians to send the game to extra innings, Michael De Leon launched a walk-off grand slam in the Louisville Bats’ walk-off win on Tuesday night, 9-5.

COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Ohio State women’s soccer team will resume a traditional competition schedule this fall following a 2021 Spring season that saw the Buckeyes advance to the Second Round of the NCAA Tournament and finish second in the Big Ten regular-season.
The Buckeyes will open the 2021 Fall schedule, the 25th season under the direction of head coach Lori Walker-Hock, after an 8-3-3 spring finish.
The next win in the 29-year history of the program will be No. 300. In the 28 previous seasons, the Buckeyes have an overall record of 299-216-55.
Notre Dame will host Ohio State in a scrimmage to open the season Aug. 10 in South Bend before the Buckeyes entertain Pittsburgh in a home scrimmage at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium Aug. 13.

TODAY IN BASEBALL HISTORY
1915 In his major league debut, Bruno Hass tosses a complete game but loses to the Yankees at Shibe Park, 15-7. The 24 year-old southpaw, known as Boon, issues 16 walks during the nine-inning contest, establishing a post-1900 major league record.
1917 Babe Ruth, after walking leadoff man Ray Morgan, the only batter he faces, is ejected by home plate umpire Brick Owens when their shouting match concerning called ball and strikes digresses into a physical confrontation. Red Sox reliever Ernie Shore comes into the Fenway Park contest, retiring 26 consecutive batters, with Morgan thrown out trying to steal second on his first pitch, in the team’s 4-0 victory over the Senators, in a game considered baseball’s first combined no-hitter.
1930 The Dodgers get twelve consecutive hits in a 19-6 win over the Pirates at Forbes Field. Two of the dozen hits in the eight-run sixth inning include a pair of homers hit by Brooklyn outfielder Babe Herman.
1933 With his 2-for-5 performance at the plate in Washington’s 7-3 victory over Chicago, Joe Cronin sets a major league record by collecting 15 hits in four consecutive games. The Senators’ player-manager’s recent offensive output also includes two four-hit games and another with five.
1943 Due to the civil unrest in Detroit, 350 armed troops are deployed at Briggs Stadium during a twin bill between the Indians and hometown Tigers. The recent race riots in the Motor City has claimed 29 lives and will be investigated by the House Un-American Activities Committee, looking for evidence of subversive and racial propaganda spread by the Axis nations.
1946 At the Polo Grounds, Eddie Waitkus and Marv Rickert hit back-to-back inside-the-park home runs in the fourth inning. The Cubs, however, still lose to the Giants, 15-10.
1950 Luke Easter, obtained last season by Indians owner Bill Veeck from the Kansas City Monarchs, blasts the longest home run ever hit in Cleveland’s Municipal Stadium. The 34 year-old first baseman’s 477-foot shot into the upper right deck will be one of two round-trippers he hits in the team’s 13-4 rout of Washington.
1950 The game’s eleventh round-tripper, a ninth-inning game-winning home run by Hoot Evers, gives the Tigers a dramatic 10-9 victory over the Yankees. The decisive four-bagger in the Bronx sets the major league record for the most homers ever hit in a single game.
1961 During the Twins’ first season in Minnesota, Sam Mele replace Cookie Lavagetto as the manager of the ninth-place team. As a coach, the Astoria, New York native filled in as the skipper of the club while Lavagetto took a seven-game leave of absence earlier in the month.
1962 Larry Doby becomes one of the first players with major league experience to sign with a Japanese team. The future Hall of Famer will play with Chunichi in the Nippon Professional Baseball League, but the former Indians’ outfielder will hit only .225 for the Dragons.
1963 The Colt .45s’ streak of 40 consecutive innings without scoring a run ends with Howie Goss’s second inning RBI-single in an 8-1 loss to Cincinnati at Crosley Field. Houston will immediately begin another scoreless streak of 30 innings before scoring again.
1963 After taking Phillies right-hander Dallas Green deep, Jimmy Piersall runs around the bases in the correct order, but backward, to celebrate his 100th career home run. The Mets’ outfielder, who thought of the stunt after being disappointed by the lack of attention Duke Snider’s 400th round-tripper received, will be released two days later by manager Casey Stengel.
1971 In addition to hitting two home runs and driving in three runs, Rick Wise throws only 95 pitches to 28 batters to no-hit the Reds, 4-0. The Phillies’ hurler will hit two home runs in the same game again this season against San Francisco in August.
1973 In his major league debut, Jesse Jefferson loses his shutout when Red Sox third baseman Rico Petrocelli’s two-out, ninth-inning solo home run ties the Fenway Park contest. The 24 year-old rookie right-hander will hang on to get the complete-game victory after the Orioles score a run in the 10th to beat Boston, 2-1.
1973 In a complete-game 7-2 victory over Montreal at Parc Jarry, Phillies’ hurler Ken Brett hits a home run in the fourth consecutive game that he pitches during June. The right-hander will end his 14-year career with ten round-trippers, 307 less than his brother George.
1977 Eddie Stanky, Frank Lucchesi’s replacement when the former Ranger skipper got off to a 31-31 start, quits after being at the helm for only one game, a 10-8 victory in Minnesota. The 60 year-old ‘Brat’ cites homesickness for his short tenure with Texas, returning to Mobile (AL) to rejoin his family and resume his baseball coaching duties for the University of South Alabama Jaguars.
1984 In a game best remembered for Ryne Sandberg’s two late-inning game-tying home runs, Willie McGee hits for the cycle in St. Louis’ 12-11 loss in 11 innings to the Cubs. With his triple in the second inning, a fourth-frame single, a sixth-inning home run, and an RBI double in the tenth, the Cardinals center fielder drives in six runs in the Wrigley Field contest.
1984 The Roger Maris Museum opens in the West Acres Shopping Center located in Fargo, North Dakota. Nearly 2,000 visitors are attracted to the 72-foot showcase, which features memorabilia from the slugger’s 12-year big league career, including a ticket stub from the 162nd game of the 1961 season.
1984 In a nationally televised game, Cubs’ second baseman Ryne Sandberg hits a leadoff solo home run in the ninth off Cardinal reliever Bruce Sutter to tie the score 9-9, then hits a two-run, two-out homer in the tenth, knotting the game at 11. Chicago wins the Wrigley Field contest, 12-11, in the next frame on an RBI single by Dave Owen.
1986 The Braves strand 18 runners on base, including leaving the bases full in four of the nine innings, to establish a National League record. Enough Atlanta players cross the plate to give the team a 6-5 victory over L.A. at Dodger Stadium.
1993 At the Kingdome., Jay Buhner becomes the first player in Mariners’ history to hit for the cycle. The right fielder triples in the 14th inning to complete the task, scoring the winning run in the team’s 8-7 victory over the A’s.
1995 ‘Marvelous’ Marv Throneberry, known best by his antics as a Met, dies from cancer at the age of 60. The first baseman’s blunders on the field became symbolic of the hapless new franchise in the Big Apple.
1996 The Yankees score nine sixth-inning runs en route to an 11-9 victory over the Tribe at Jacobs Field. The win marks the first time the Bronx Bombers have completed a four-game sweep of the Indians since 1964.
1996 In a 5-4 Cubs’ loss in San Diego, Brant Brown continues his torrid pace at the plate, collecting two hits in three at-bats at Jack Murphy Stadium. The rookie first baseman has collected 15 hits, including four home runs, in his first 34 career major league at-bats.
2000 Bret Boone drives in six runs when he hits three home runs in the Padres’ 10-7 victory over Cincinnati. Ruben Rivera’s three-run homer in the top of the tenth inning off Scott Williamson proves to be the difference in the Cinergy Field contest.
2003 Stealing second base at Pacific Bell Park in the 11th inning, Barry Bonds becomes the first player to hit 500 homers and steal 500 bases. Many people believe, including Giants’ left fielder, he may not only be the charter member of the 500-500 club but most likely to be the only member, as no one else may ever reach this plateau.
2005 Making his professional debut, Yakima Bears hurler Ryan Doherty pitches a perfect sixth and seventh, striking out three of the six batters he faces, during a 3-2 loss to the Vancouver Canadians. At 7’1″, the right-hander from Toms River, New Jersey, who signed a free-agent contract with the Diamondbacks after pitching for Notre Dame, becomes the tallest pitcher in professional baseball history, surpassing Jon Rauch, who stands a mere six feet-11 inches.
2006 White Sox starter Jose Contreras establishes a franchise mark, surpassing LaMarr Hoyt and Wilson Alvarez, by winning his 16th consecutive decision when Chicago beats the Astros 7-4 in a matchup of last year’s World Series rivals. The Cuban right-hander, whose previous defeat occurred on August 15th last season against the Twins, hasn’t been beaten in his past 21 starts.
2006 The Mets, defeating the Blue Jays at the Rogers Centre, 6-1, set a club record, winning their ninth straight decision on the road. The team had won their eight decisions on a ten-game road trip, including stops in Los Angeles, Arizona, and Philadelphia.
2007 During a Class AA Southern League contest against the Montgomery Biscuits, Mobile BayBears right-hander Matt Elliott is unable to return to the mound to pitch the ninth inning when he locks himself inside a Riverwalk Stadium bathroom. The relief pitcher, who broke the lock after he angrily slammed the door, upset about giving up the tying run on a sac fly in the previous inning, will be stuck in the restroom for 47 minutes, missing the rest of the game.
2008 In an interleague contest against the Mets at Shea Stadium, Mariners’ right-hander Felix Hernandez becomes the first pitcher in the 31-year history of the franchise to hit a home run. The round-tripper, which comes off fellow Venezuela ace Johan Santana, is also the first grand slam hit by an American League pitcher since Steve Dunning of the Indians homered off A’s moundsman Diego Segui in 1971.
2010 In a move that surprises its players, the fourth-place Marlins (34-36) fire their manager, Fredi Gonzalez, along with bench coach Carlos Tosca and hitting coach Jim Presley. Edwin Rodriguez, the skipper of the team’s Triple-A affiliate in New Orleans, is named to fill the position on an interim basis.
2011 Upset by the management’s lack of commitment about his future with the team, Nationals manager Jim Riggleman resigns abruptly after the team beats Seattle, 1-0. The club, having won 11 of their last 12 games, is 38-37 at the time of their skipper’s departure.
2012 Jim Thome sets a major league mark with his 13th career walk-off home run, a solo shot over the left-field wall in the bottom of the ninth inning, giving the Phillies a dramatic 7-6 victory over Tampa Bay. Before today’s historic round-tripper at Citizens Bank Park, the 41 year-old five-time All-Star Thome had shared the record with five Hall of Famers: Jimmie Foxx, Mickey Mantle, Babe Ruth, Stan Musial, and Frank Robinson.
2014 Devin Mesoraco becomes the first major leaguer to hit a solo, two-run, three-run, and grand slam homer sequentially in consecutive games when he blasts a ninth-inning four-bagger in the Reds’ 6-1 victory over Chicago at Wrigley Field. The backstop extends his streak to five straight games, hitting a solo shot tomorrow to accomplish the unusual feat of homering at PNC Park (solo HR), Great American Ball Park (two and three-run HRS), and Wrigley Field (grand slam).
2017 The Red Sox retire David Ortiz’s uniform number 34, making Big Papi the 11th player to be honored along with Bobby Doerr (No. 1), Joe Cronin (4), Johnny Pesky (6), Carl Yastrzemski (8), Ted Williams (9), Jim Rice (14), Wade Boggs (26), Carlton Fisk (27), Pedro Martinez (45) and Jackie Robinson (42). The MVP of the 2004 ALCS and 2013 Fall Classic played a pivotal role in the three World Series championship teams during his 14-year tenure in Boston. change to “Big Papi”, and to “Carl Yastrzemski (8), Ted Williams (9)”, and to “Pedro Martinez (45), and”
