SPTR's going international?

Off topic, I realize, but thought I would share a piece of ref'ing that would shame even the Pac-10.

NCAA enforcement strikes again...

Oklahoma State All-American WR Dez Bryant was ruled to be ineligible this morning by the NCAA, for the notoriously grave crime of misleading NCAA investigators. Because as we all know, the NCAA never allows an athlete or athletic department to get away from lying, misleading, or obstructing investigations into allegations of the above! Ever!

Tyler Lamb targeted by racist taunts

C/O 2010 verbal commit Tyler Lamb, along with a Mater Dei teammate, were subjected to racist heckling and taunts throughout their game @ Servite HS last Friday. Behavior by the Servite students was stated to include "monkey noises" and questions regarding the parentage of Lamb and teammate Gary Franklin throughout the game. I am not one to crack down on booing/heckling, even at the HS level, but this is just wrong. Not sure what was in these student's minds, but clearly their parents still have work to do (as well as to watch less European soccer). (HT to Deadspin

Mack Brown boots racist player from UT Football; WWPD?

We know that Pete Carroll is a forgiving sort when it comes to the Facebook-displayed racism of his players, but his style has apparently not rubbed off on his peers. Coach Brown dismissed one of his players from the Texas program today, following the player's not-so transcendent Facebook update regarding this week's election result (use the title link for details; I will refrain from posting the exact phrase, but to summarize his suggestion that the off-season hunting trip be relocated to the nation's capital).

Bruins crack the AP top-25
