I've always said you cannot give Georgia St that much time
I've spent a lot of time at the Orsini. You'd have to try really hard to "fall off" the balcony as Shaw's lawyer claims.
Catch me wearing a Rush T-shirt at this T-Pain concert
If Gallardo had a change up ...
Utah St QB Chuckie Keeton is scheduled to be on show tomorrow. CHUCKIE KEETON THO
As was already planned, USC practice will be closed tomorrow and players will not be made available. Sarkisian will address media after.
I wonder what happened to the Solid Gold dancers.
They showed a schedule on the broadcast and Abilene Christian is playing a school this year called Ave Maria?
Coco Crisp hits a HR to the Crawford Boxes. The Crawford Box fans respond by throwing that ball back to the field lol. A's up 2-1, top 7.
Enjoying watching Abilene Christian on ESPNU. My dad went to school there, over 60 years ago!
Why I don't mind "home games" in LA...not a bad place to study! Getting excited for Fresno State @ USC! http://t.co/ncetFxksmL
Technically Jared Dudley has to pass a Milwaukee physical for Clippers/Bucks trade to be official - not the case with Thabeet
Lil Wayne's open letter to Ciara on "Promise" was a Climbing Everest-level achievement in creepiness
Guess Bryce Harper or Jayson Werth is supposed to get hit next.
I'm pretty sure the real story is that Josh Shaw attempted to save Manti Te'o's girlfriend.
Portland State Athletics Director "Torre" Chisholm leaving PSU to "pursue other career opportunities,” per PSU release.
Venus Williams is into the 3rd round of the Open. It would be a compelling storyline if she can make a run here at age 34.
Depressed that it's dark by 8:20 now. My boss told me summer's just starting.
Of course Lakers didn't expect to have any protections kick in on their picks - but we'll see . . .
Not sure how long Rubio lasts with Golovkin though. Seems tailor made for GGG. I know he went 12 w/JCC, but I don't see him going 4 vs. GGG
got my years mixed up
But the Clippers will make the playoffs the next few seasons - so that pick will probably be with Bucks in June '17
Can confirm that the TImberwolves received a $6.3 mil trade exception in the Kevin Love trade - could have gone a few ways with that one
The Clippers' pick to the Bucks in Dudley trade is lottery protected through 2019 - otherwise becomes 2020/21 second-rounders
Basically the Thunder just paid $100k to land a $1.25 mil trade exception for a full year
The Philly pick is top 55 protected - any chance the Sixers are a top-5 team this year? That pick never goes to OKC
The Oklahoma City Thunder sent the Philadelphia 76ers $100,000 in the Thabeet trade - could have just cut him outright - wanted that TPE
Among the teams in Eurobasket 2015: Iceland for the first time and Netherlands for the first time since 1989.
As strange as this Josh Shaw story is, Manti Te'o has him beat by a million miles..and the media fell for that story, too.
Covering the Yanks. David Price tonight became 1st pitcher since HOU's Bob Forsch in 1989 to allow 9 straight hits in a game, per Stats LLC.
The good news is Edmond's talking again, because he's a fun interview. Which means on this team, he fits in pretty well.
Did not know until today it was a Grade 4 (out of 5) liver laceration that ended Edmond's season. He said it was torn down the middle.
So, Steve, do you have anything new you'd like to say about the Baylor thing? "No."
Steve Edmond just did his first interview since "Baylor is trash." I asked if we got him in trouble. He dropped his head, and said, "Ugh."
Josh Shaw's lawyer said he "fell off a balcony." Going to go out on a limb that you don't retain legal counsel if that's all that happened.
Josh Shaw's story is George Costanza-esque. He also tells the ladies he's a marine biologist.
The Yankees have gotten nine straight hits? Cool. WAIT, against David Price?!?!
Dude, this Yankees game is weird.
I'd rather cover the pros than colleges (salary caps vs. recruiting scandals), but SEC football is a rare spectacle
Bedford also invoked fire marshals, the state of Texas, Friday Night Lights and fans who will have no right to complain in his plea.
September I jump into some college football. Looking forward to covering South Carolina hosting A&M and Clemson at Georgia.
Bedford, when told 9k tickets are available: "People! Get off your duff and get some tickets! It should be standing room only!"
Bedford said he bought a paper Sunday and saw Texas picked to go 7-5. "So I have nothing to worry about. If we go 7-5, we're good as gold."
Eurosport in German in my Bilbao hotel room for my first look at the US Open? I'll take it
Did you notice how Josh Shaw's sister did not take sides against the family? She backed up the bogus story.
All jokes aside, is Shaw's nephew ok?
Texas DC Vance Bedford says Dylan Haines, Jason Hall and Adrian Colbert will rotate at second safety spot.
Question: Who pays when a college football star needs a $500 per hour defense attorney? I assume a booster but ...
When the kid told the lie I bet he never thought the USC sports information office would try to turn it into a TV movie of the week.
Heat signed Shannon Brown today. He was once a first-round pick of the Cleveland Cavaliers. So there’s that.
When I was in college I fabricated plenty of stories. Mostly at bars. I just never as public and as over-the-top as USC's Josh Shaw.
View for dinner not too shabby http://t.co/v8utvGZik9
According to multiple reports, 4 star OT Bar Milo has orally committed to UM, where he will join former high school teammate Brad Kaaya
Can't believe it took this long for @worstraplyrics to exist, but glad we finally made it
The Rockets' deal with summer league forward Tarik Black is for two years, partially guaranteed, league source tells RealGM.
Josh Shaw, via attorney: "I was wrong not to tell the truth." But does not explain what happened.
Josh Shaw's lawyer, Donald Etra, is a very well known criminal defense atty. Went to Yale with George W. Bush; Skull and Bones guy.
Shaw: "On Saturday I injured myself in a fall. I made up a lie about this fall that was untrue. I was wrong to not tell the truth."
Wait, is the nephew OK?!?!
To recap-Josh Shaw was called a hero after making up a story that he injured his ankles while jumping off a balcony to save a drowning child
If I'm USC and my fifth-year captain/commencement speaker says HE JUMPED OFF A BALCONY TO SAVE HIS NEPHEW, I'm probably making a phone call
So Josh Shaw told a tall Te'o.
"Identity is what you can say you are, according to what they say you can be." ~ Jill Johnston
BREAKING: USC CB Josh Shaw admits he lied about how he suffered sprained ankles. Sarkisian: "We are extremely disappointed in Josh."
Actually, the pick is no surprise to anyone who saw prosecuting atty @csnkoz pepper me like I was a hostile witness last night on the issue.
Sarkisian: "We are extremely disappointed in Josh. He let us all down. As I have said, nothing in his background led us to doubt him."
Sarkisian: "I appreciate that Josh has now admitted that he lied and has apologized. ... it is unacceptable."
I've seen many a college program accept a dubious explanation from a scholarship athlete. Not many then choose to take the story national.
Sarkisian said that Shaw has been suspended indefinitely from all team activities. Shaw has retained Donald Etra as legal counsel.
Vlad Rad is like - "what's this Josh Shaw guy doing?"
Shaw said that the story he told of rescuing his nephew in a pool in Palmdale was a complete fabrication. He apologized for misleading.
Rockets announce they have signed center/forward Tarik Black. He'll obviously be a longshot to make team, but could be a good RGV prospect.
Josh Shaw came to USC athletic department officials and admitted that he had lied about how he suffered his ankle injuries over the weekend.
I miss working with Randy...that was fun
A trusted friend tells me Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Durant worked out today at UCLA in the men's gym.
1992 Michael Jordan or 2014 Chris Smith?
I think we're all excited about a new football stadium inDC. Probably less so about bulldozers tearing down a perfectly decent stadium.
I'm asked a lot about CDR. I understand, based on last season. But last thing Hornets need right now is another wing.
This isn't a big deal. Point is they'd be locked into 15 guarantees to firm up a 3rd center now.
Portland Classic defending champ Suzann Pettersen is so head-to-to Nike, she even has a Nike phone case.
Another coach on C of C: "I was shocked at how impressive that place was. Absolute gold mine job! Can win 20 gms every year."
That would effectively mean Cody Zeller will play some at center as well as power forward (which probably would have happened anyway).
Once again, I say this with care: Change is certain. Growth is optional.
Miami Heat announce the Shannon Brown signing . . .
FWIW I would not anticipate Hornets adding a 15th guarantee to bring a 3rd center to training camp.
Another: "We used to go there for Kresse's team camp every year when I was in HS. I'd pay them to let me have that job."
Another: "Charleston was my dream job for long time and AD wouldn't even consider me. Blessing in end."
Here's one: "Charleston was my dream job until I realized they must have idiots in charge!"
Anthony Davis is my dark horse MVP pick — making me just like every other NBA writer right now.
I've had about 20 quality assistants in past hour text me saying some version of "Charleston is my dream job. What the hell are they doing?"
Phil, Scottie and Mike....Phil, Shaq and Kobe.....
We like Bird Parish Kevin McHale...Scott, Worthy, Jabbar and Magic, oh my god it's magic...Isiah, Dumars I will carve your casket....
Eurobasket 2015 will also qualify for the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in 2016
Beaverton High's Gigi Stoll tees off in Portland Classic at 9:08 a.m. Thursday on the 10th tee. She has a 1:58 p.m. start Friday.
"Martin" debuted 22 years ago today? I've seen that episode so many times and his show still makes me laugh out loud
22 years ago today, the world was blessed with Super Mario Kart AND the debut of "Martin." Aug. 27, 1992, a grand day in human existence.
Flip is working out the four new guys these next three afternoons before everybody takes a long holiday weekend break
Signing Shannon Brown and Reggie Williams for Dwyane Wade insurance is like buying an umbrella covered in holes.

The "Homer is a Deadhead for the Ribwich" b-plot in this episode was one of their best.
At the very least, the discussion might prompt some to more carefully consider conditions when reclining. Poor Hasheem.

Thrilled airplane seats are becoming a hot button issue. Nothing worse than trying to use bulky work laptop with tray shoved into my groin
