  • Bobby Petrino fired at Arkansas...

    FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas fired coach Bobby Petrino on Tuesday, saying he engaged in reckless behavior that included hiring his mistress and then intentionally misleading his bosses about everything from their relationship to her presence at the motorcycle accident that ultimately cost him his job.

    "He made the decision to mislead the public, (and it) adversely affected the university and the football program," athletic director Jeff Long said at an evening news conference, choking up at one point as he discussed telling players the news. There was a "pattern of misleading and manipulative behavior to deceive me."

  • NFL upholds Payton’s suspension

    NEW YORK (AP) — Commissioner Roger Goodell sent a message to every coach and player in the NFL: safety first. The league commissioner stuck with his punishments for New Orleans’ pay-for-pain bounties on Monday, rejecting Saints coach Sean Payton’s appeal of a season-long suspension.
    An NFL investigation found that, under Payton’s watch, an assistant ran a program offering cash payouts for hits that knocked targeted opponents out of games or hurt them so badly they needed help getting to the sideline.
    Next on Goodell’s agenda: discipline for players involved in the bounty program that began in 2009, the season the Saints won the Super Bowl.
    Given recent history, at least some of those penalties are likely to be tough.

  • Scooping It Up

    Los Alamos shortstop Dancie Smith picks up a ground ball during Los Alamos’ March 29 game against Albuquerque Academy. The Hilltoppers have a big District 2-4A contest scheduled for Wednesday  when they host the Bernalillo Spartans. A win by the Hilltoppers (13-4, 6-0) would effectively put them four game ahead of the Spartans (15-3, 3-2), who are currently in second place in district, with five games remaining in the 2-4A season. Smith was injured in and left a March 31 doubleheader with Española Valley but rejoined the team just four days later.

  • Watson wins Masters playoff over...

    AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Trapped in the trees, Bubba Watson had no chance. Good thing he's one of those guys who never hits the ball straight.

    Unable to even see the green from where he was standing, Watson curled a shot from out of the pine straw and safely onto the 10th green to win the Masters on the second hole of a playoff Sunday over South Africa's Louis Oosthuizen.
