    GEORGETOWN, Ky. (AP) — Terrell Owens arrived fashionably late, received a white jersey with his favorite number, and got a smattering of applause for doing even the simplest thing.

  • Football: Haynesworth getting no...

    ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — Albert Haynesworth finally showed up for work — and quickly learned the Washington Redskins won't be cutting him any slack.

    On the eve of the first day of training camp, Haynesworth ended his months-long boycott of the team by meeting Wednesday morning with coach Mike Shanahan. Hardly sympathetic to the plight of a player who recently received a $21 million bonus, the coach wasn't about to let bygones by bygones.

  • TCU picked to repeat in Mountain...

    LAS VEGAS (AP) — TCU is still on top in the Mountain West Conference.

    The Horned Frogs received all 31 first-place votes in the league's preseason media poll, released Tuesday.

    "Probably what that means is that we have good talent. Now we have to live up to it," TCU coach Gary Patterson said. "I think that's the whole thing. It doesn't matter what people say about them in August. Preseason goes off of what happened last year."
