Paul George seems to be progressing well on and off the court. The Indiana Pacers star was filmed by Scott Agness getting shots up on Monday.

George wasn’t jumping or bending his knees, but it was good to see him back.

Florida AD Gives Muschamp A Little More Time http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2014/10/florida-ad-gives-muschamp-a-little-more-time/ http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2014/10/florida-ad-gives-muschamp-a-little-more-time/#comments Mon, 20 Oct 2014 22:42:26 +0000 http://blacksportsonline.com/home/?p=253894 Will-Muschamp

Florida coach Will Muschamp is getting at least another game to turn things around. Athletic director Jeremy Foley said Monday that he will continue to evaluate the season and likely Muschamp’s future as it plays out. That means Muschamp will be on the sideline when the Gators (3-3, 2-3 Southeastern Conference) play ninth-ranked Georgia in Jacksonville on Nov. 1.
Foley released a 40-word statement that did little to sway belief that Muschamp’s job is in serious jeopardy following consecutive home losses to teams that previously struggled in SEC play.

”At the beginning of the season we said we would evaluate the season as it plays out,” Foley said. ”We will continue to do so. Our sole focus right now is supporting our coaching staff and players as they prepare for Georgia.”

The Gators are coming off back-to-back losses to LSU and Missouri. The latest one, a 42-13 debacle to Mizzou on Saturday night, was one of the most embarrassing losses in Muschamp’s three-plus years in Gainesville.

Dikembe Mutumbo Interested In Buying Hawks http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2014/10/dikembe-mutumbo-interested-in-buying-hawks/ http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2014/10/dikembe-mutumbo-interested-in-buying-hawks/#comments Mon, 20 Oct 2014 22:41:06 +0000 http://blacksportsonline.com/home/?p=253895 Dikembe

I’m interested in knowing whose net worth is the largest.

Dikembe Mutumbo has joined Chris Webber and Dominique Wilkins in joining investors with the idea of purchasing the Atlanta Hawks.

 Former Hawks player Dikembe Mutombo has met with a group of investors about joining their bid to buy the Atlanta Hawks.

The group, which is made up in part of Atlanta businessmen, has begun the preliminary work to get involved in the sale of the team. Talks are ongoing. The group may also consist of other former NBA players. They hope to meet with the NBA commissioner’s office in the near future.

The sale price won’t be close to the $2 billion Steve Ballmer paid out for the Clippers, but Bruce Levenson should command close to $500.

Stiviano Lawsuit Against Shelly Sterling Dismissed http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2014/10/stiviano-lawsuit-against-shelly-sterling-dismissed/ http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2014/10/stiviano-lawsuit-against-shelly-sterling-dismissed/#comments Mon, 20 Oct 2014 22:09:45 +0000 http://blacksportsonline.com/home/?p=253886 v-stiviano-donald-sterling-shelly sterling 1

At least one part of the V. Stiviano versus the Sterlings circus is finally coming to an end. The judge presiding over the Stiviano’s lawsuit against Shelly Sterling for defamation has dismissed the case for lack of sufficient evidence.

Judge Richard Fruin said last week he planned to allow the suit, but he reconsidered after arguments from Shelley Sterling’s lawyer.

The judge found that V. Stiviano presented no evidence to support her claim that Shelley Sterling called her a thief and an embezzler in public forums. He said that while Stiviano claimed she was defamed in hundreds if not thousands of publications, she did not present a single quotation to support her claim.

If you’re not quite full of your Stiviano versus the Sterlings in all its glory, never fear. Shelly Sterling is suing Stiviano for $2.5 million, which was given to Stiviano in gifts from Donald Sterling.

Rams Waive Austin Pettis http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2014/10/rams-waive-austin-pettis/ http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2014/10/rams-waive-austin-pettis/#comments Mon, 20 Oct 2014 22:01:48 +0000 http://blacksportsonline.com/home/?p=253881 Austin Pettis Rams

After notably being inactive for Sunday’s matchup against the Seahawks, the Rams have decided to part ways with WR Austin Pettis. Pettis was drafted in the third round in the 2011 draft and just seemed to never live up to St. Louis’ expectations of him.

Don’t be surprised to see Pettis on another roster soon, however. He contributed on both offense and special teams. Special teams contributors usually have a longer shelf life in the NFL.

Report: No Superstars Want To Play With Kobe http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2014/10/report-no-superstars-want-to-play-with-kobe/ http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2014/10/report-no-superstars-want-to-play-with-kobe/#comments Mon, 20 Oct 2014 21:23:20 +0000 http://blacksportsonline.com/home/?p=253878 Kobe Explodes For Dunk During Practice.

I know the title is harsh, but judging from the this scathing report from ESPN.com, Bryant might be better served starting the season with four of his minions, and proceeding from there.

According to report, Bryant’s mecurialness and ability to alienate teammates, has other superstars running the other way when it comes to the proposition of playing with Bryant.

Several league sources and agents threw Bryant under the bus, and labeled him as the primary reason for the Lakers’  inability to retain Dwight Howard last summer.

Another agent says “multiple” players refused to sign with the Lakers because of Bryant.

“I’ve had a lot of clients in the last five years, good players, who didn’t want to play with Kobe,” says an agent who has had numerous NBA stars. “They see that his teammates become the chronic public whipping boys. Anyone who could possibly challenge Kobe for the spotlight en’ds up becoming a pincushion for the media. Even Shaq.”

Bryant was blamed for the Lakers missing out on stars like Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James this summer.

OK St Players Arrested After Falling Asleep at Whataburger Drive-Thru http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2014/10/ok-st-players-arrested-after-falling-asleep-at-whataburger-drive-thru/ http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2014/10/ok-st-players-arrested-after-falling-asleep-at-whataburger-drive-thru/#comments Mon, 20 Oct 2014 21:13:30 +0000 http://blacksportsonline.com/home/?p=253875 jhajuan Seales

Two Oklahoma State Cowboys football players were arrested early Sunday morning in Stillwater for public intoxication after being found by Stillwater police asleep in their car in a Whataburger drive-thru. The players are redshirt sophomore WR Jhajuan Seales and freshman CB Juwan Offray.

According to the police report attained by the Tulsa World, Seales was allegedly asleep at the wheel with his foot on the brake while Offray was in the passenger seat when Stillwater, Oklahoma police arrived.

The police report indicated that Seales and Offray “seemed very lethargic and confused” after they were awakened and one officer reported a “strong odor associated with an alcoholic beverage coming from the car.”

Offray was also cited for hampering with a police investigation by giving the officer a fake name. Seales is actually a starter in the Cowboys offense, and has totaled 13 catches for 236 yards and 3 TDs this season.

Clowney Unlikely to Play Against Steelers http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2014/10/clowney-unlikely-to-play-against-steelers/ http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2014/10/clowney-unlikely-to-play-against-steelers/#comments Mon, 20 Oct 2014 20:44:31 +0000 http://blacksportsonline.com/home/?p=253872 NFL: Preseason-Atlanta Falcons at Houston Texans

Looks like Houston fans are going to have to wait another week before they see the return of #1 overall pick Jadeveon Clowney.

Clowney is recovering from a meniscus tear that he suffered and Week 1 against Washington. He was limited in practice all of last week, so Houston holding off on bringing him back is a huge surprise. Don’t want to rush him back before he is ready.

Somebody in this situation is not telling the truth.

Via SB Nation:

In the aftermath of the Percy Harvin trade that netted the Seattle Seahawks only a conditional sixth-round pick, reports quickly spread that the receiver had been a regular problem in the locker room due to anger issues. Harvin has responded, denying the rumors and any alleged rift with teammates, according to NFL Network’s Albert Breer.

Jimbo Ends Press Conference Abruptly Due to Constant Jameis Questions http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2014/10/jimbo-ends-press-conference-abruptly-due-to-constant-jameis-questions/ http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2014/10/jimbo-ends-press-conference-abruptly-due-to-constant-jameis-questions/#comments Mon, 20 Oct 2014 20:29:05 +0000 http://blacksportsonline.com/home/?p=253866 FSU_Jameis_Winston_Jimbo_Fisher_2013

Things are getting very tense is Tallahassee as Seminoles coach Jimbo Fisher is letting it be known that he’s had enough of the perceived media badgering over Jameis Winston. Fisher was asked if he felt his reputation was at stake for backing Winston, and what proceeded was a abrupt end to the press conference and a very awkward press area.

“We’re moving on with Louisville and talking about the other things,” Fisher said. “Everything should be great.”

Fisher ended the interview once he was asked whether it’s fair that Fisher’s reputation has taken a hit.

“Why is my reputation taking a hit? For backing a kid who has done nothing wrong?” Fisher said. “I don’t want to get into this. The questions weren’t supposed to be asked today. I’m done. I’m done.”

It wasn’t entirely the media’s fault, though. Fisher said he was told that there would be no questions about Winston’s off-field issues, but reporters weren’t told that there were any restrictions.

The Final Four: College Football Playoff Predictions Week 8 http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2014/10/the-final-four-college-football-playoff-predictions-week-8/ http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2014/10/the-final-four-college-football-playoff-predictions-week-8/#comments Mon, 20 Oct 2014 20:14:00 +0000 http://blacksportsonline.com/home/?p=253840 College Football Playoff Trophy

Another weekend, another upset. Just your typical weekend in the world of college football. Lets see whose in and whose out in this week’s edition of The Final Four.

Whose In?

  • Mississippi State

The Bulldogs remain on top of the college football world as they enjoyed a bye week as they prepare for Kentucky. A showdown with the Crimson Tide in Tuscaloosa looms big and MSU should roll into Bryant-Denny Stadium undefeated for a match that could be one of the best games of the year.

  • Florida State

The Noles are coming off a huge win over Notre Dame in a game that came down to the wire. This team continues to find ways to win close games and has had its share of adversity throughout the season. With their toughest opponent in the rear view, there is no reason why the Noles can’t finish the regular season without a loss on the resume.

  • Ole Miss

After getting off to a slow start the Rebels rolled to another convincing victory over Tennessee. Ole Miss’ defense was stingy once again as they almost pitched a shutout against the Volunteers. Here’s a stat for you, Ole Miss have only surrendered three points ALL YEAR in the first quarter of games… THREE. Good luck getting off to a fast start against this group who is only allowing 10.6 points per game.

  • Alabama

While I think some folks are over hyping the Tide’s victory over Texas A&M, shutting out one of the more potent offense in all of college football is very impressive. It’s tough to get a grasp on this team at times, last week they squeak out a victory against Arkansas and this week is a blowout victory over Texas A&M. Texas A&M is exactly the team I thought they were from the jump so don’t expect the Tide to continue this type of output offensively. This was a confidence booster the Tide needed with Mississippi State and Auburn still remaining on the schedule.

Whose Out?

  • Auburn

The Tigers have had a week to lick their wounds following a loss to Mississippi State. This week they host South Carolina before heading to Oxford to take on Ole Miss. With Ole Miss, Georgia and Alabama still on the schedule (all on the road), I’m thinking the Tigers take another L before it is all said and done.

  • Notre Dame

I didn’t expect the Irish to fall far after a hard fought battle in Tallahassee that almost went their way. If they win out, they will have a legit shot at being the playoff since the SEC teams ahead of them will cannibalize each other.

  • Oregon

Don’t look now, but the Ducks are barely on the outside looking in on the playoff picture. Just like Notre Dame, if they win out, they may very well find themselves in the playoffs since at least two SEC teams will tumble by the end of the year. Toughest games remaining at this point are a struggling Stanford, Utah and California who just lost to a UCLA team who Oregon handled. Going to be interesting.

This college football season has been very eventful and it is shaping up for an absolutely epic finish. I said early on that I think two SEC teams will make the playoff and my prediction still looks pretty good at this point in the year. I also said that I didn’t think any SEC team would finish the regular season undefeated and that is still very much in play. I think the national title is up for grabs more then has been any other year, so many contenders and things can go so many different ways. Time to sit back, relax and see how things unfold.

Gus Bradley: Denard Robinson Has Chance To Keep Jags RB Job http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2014/10/gus-bradley-denard-robinson-has-chance-to-keep-jags-rb-job/ http://blacksportsonline.com/home/2014/10/gus-bradley-denard-robinson-has-chance-to-keep-jags-rb-job/#comments Mon, 20 Oct 2014 20:05:57 +0000 http://blacksportsonline.com/home/?p=253850 denard-robinson-jags

Denard Robinson may have a shot at being a featured player in the NFL after all. The former Michigan star rekindled some old magic after rushing for 127 yards in a win over the Browns.

Robinson was so impressive that he may take Toby Gerhart’s job.

“Yeah, I think so,” Bradley said, via The Florida Times-Union. “We’ll look at the film. He did a good job and we hope to get Toby (Gerhart) back.”

Robinson gained 15 pounds in the offseason, and we’ll have to see if he can withstand the pounding.

I’m not even sure how this got past the referees, but it did. Bradford City and Sheffield United played on Saturday, and it seems that Bradford City’s Rory McArdle might’ve gotten his soccer tips from watching Randy Orton RKO Vines. He body slammed Stefan Scougall, and the refs did nothing.

As expected, Washington Redskins outside linebacker Brian Orakpo will miss the remainder of the season of tearing his Pectoral muscle in the teams win over the Titans.

Orakpo tore the left pectoral muscle at the end of the 2011 season, and then re-tore last season as well.

The free agent to be had 10 sacks last season.

Jets wide receiver Percy Harvin met the vaunted New York media for the first time on Monday and as expected, was eloquent in his introduction.

The media took it easy on Harvin during their interactions, and he stuck to all the politically correct responses.

 “All I can say is judge me off of what you see.”

management “told me to just come here and be myself.”

“I’m definitely not a perfect person.” “I have a lot of things I wish I would have done a little differently. I’m moving forward. I’m learning from those lessons.”

“It’s definitely a place I want to be for a long time,” Harvin said.

“I just feel good here. I feel welcome. I’m ready to go.”

“Harvin said he loves Rex Ryan” and “can’t wait to play for him.”

I had to watch this video over 12 times just so I could attempt to authenticate if what I was watching was real.

This older gentleman proves that age is nothing but a number when he channels his inner Mike Tyson, and destroys the young guy he’s sparring with.

He was quick, ducking and weaving away from blows, until landing some serious blows of his own.
