  • Penn State gets back to business

    STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — The Nebraska and Penn State players gathered at midfield before the game, kneeling together for a long moment in a quiet stadium.
    Sometimes, the most powerful statements are the simplest.
    Saturday’s game was a combination of pep rally, cleansing and tribute for a Penn State community rocked by the child sex-abuse scandal involving former assistant Jerry Sandusky that cost Joe Paterno his job.
    “We’ve had better weeks in our lives, obviously,” Jay Paterno, the quarterbacks coach, said after the game. “The world’s kind of turned upside down, but I think our kids were resilient.”

  • Penn St. campus is rattled

    STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — After nearly a half-century on the job, Joe Paterno says he is still getting used to the idea of not being Penn State’s football coach. So is the rest of the shaken campus, after one of the most tumultuous days in its history.
    In less than 24 hours Wednesday, the winningest coach in major college football announced his retirement at the end of the season — then was abruptly fired by the board of trustees.

  • NBA players don’t balk at owners’ ultimatum

    NEW YORK (AP) — NBA players made it clear Tuesday: No deal.
    No fear of Commissioner David Stern’s ultimatum, either.
    “The current offer on the table from the NBA is one that we cannot accept,” players’ association president Derek Fisher said.
    Instead, the players said they will ask for another meeting with owners before Stern’s Wednesday afternoon deadline — and sound willing to agree to a 50-50 split of revenues under the right circumstances.
    In an interview on NBA TV, Stern said that whether he agrees to meet “would be guided by the labor relations committee.”
    NBA spokesman Mike Bass said the league has not yet heard from Hunter.

  • Paterno to step down

    STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Joe Paterno, the Penn State football coach who preached success with honor for half a century but whose legend was shattered by a child sex abuse scandal, said Wednesday he will retire at the end of this season.
    Paterno said he was “absolutely devastated” by the case, in which his one-time heir apparent, Jerry Sandusky, has been charged with molesting eight boys over 15 years, including at the Penn State football complex.
    He said he hoped the team could finish its season with “dignity and determination.”
    The trustees could still force him to leave immediately and could take action against university president, Graham Spanier.

  • Paterno to retire at end of season--video extras

    STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Penn State football coach Joe Paterno will retire at the end of the season, his long and illustrious career brought down because he failed to do all he could about an allegation of child sex abuse against a former assistant.

    "This is a tragedy," Paterno said in a statement Wednesday. "It is one of the great sorrows of my life. With the benefit of hindsight, I wish I had done more."

  • OT field goal puts LSU over Alabama

    TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — No. 1 LSU gained the inside track to the BCS title game, beating No. 2 Alabama 9-6 on Drew Alleman’s 25-yard field goal in overtime after a fierce defensive struggle in which neither team reached the end zone Saturday night.
    The Crimson Tide missed four field goals, including Cade Foster’s 52-yard attempt after Alabama got the ball first in the extra period. LSU appeared to win the game on Michael Ford’s run around left end after taking a pitch, but he stepped out of bounds at the 7.

  • Cards win World Series, beat Texas 6-2 in Game 7--video extra

    ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals won a remarkable World Series they weren't even supposed to reach, beating the Texas Rangers 6-2 in Game 7 on Friday night with another key hit by hometown star David Freese and six gutty innings from Chris Carpenter.

    A day after an epic Game 6 that saw them twice within one strike of elimination, the Cardinals captured their 11th World Series crown. After a whole fall on the edge, Tony La Russa's team didn't dare mess with Texas, or any more drama.

    Freese's two-run double tied it in the first inning against loser Matt Harrison and Allen Craig hit a go-ahead homer in the third.

  • Tar Heels are tops in AP poll

    North Carolina broke a tie with its fiercest rival and moved into one with one of college basketball’s most storied programs.
    The Tar Heels, who return all five starters from the team that reached the regional finals last season, were the runaway No. 1 in The Associated Press’ men’s preseason Top 25 on Friday.
    It is the eighth time they have received that honor since the preseason poll started in 1961-62.
    That breaks a tie with Duke, North Carolina’s Tobacco Road rival, and moves them into a tie with UCLA.
