49ers Suspend Broadcaster After 'Dark Skin Color' Comments
12/05/2019 12:57am

The San Francisco 49ers have suspended broadcaster Tim Ryan for one game after his comments about Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson earlier this week.During his weekly radio show Murph and Mac on Monday, Ryan talked about how Jacksons skin color made him more effective against the 49ers defense. Profs Make Impeachment Case Democrats Say Theyre All in Hes really good at that fake, Lamar Jackson, but when you consider his dark skin color with a dark football with a dark uniform, you could not see that thing. I mean you literally could not see when he was in and out of the mesh point, he said.Ryan has since issued a statement stating: New Sexual Assault Suit Against Lyft to Be Announced in SF I regret my choice of words in trying to describe the conditions of the game. Lamar Jackson is an MVP-caliber player and I respect him greatly. I want to sincerely apologize to him and anyone else I offended.The 49ers released the following statement Wednesday: Trump Calls Canadian PM Two-Faced After NATO Open Mic Moment We are disappointed in Tim Ryans comments earlier this week, and have suspended him for the upcoming game. We hold Tim to a high standard as a representative of our organization and he must be more thoughtful with his words. Tim has expressed remorse in a public statement and has also done so with us privately. We know Tim as a man of high integrity and are confident he will grow and learn from this experience.We have reached out to the Baltimore Ravens organization to extend our apologies and assure them the matter is not being taken lightly.Rev. Jethroe Moore II, the President of NAACP Silicon Valley/San Jose, says hed like to meet with Ryan before he returns from the suspension.Part of his coming back should be coming to meet with members of the African-American community for better understanding of how those words can be hurtful, Moore said. That includes the 49er players and actually letting them talk about how they feel about the comments.

Clay Helton to Return as Coach for USC Trojans in 2020
12/04/2019 5:22pm

The University of Southern California Athletic Department has announced that head football coach, Clay Helton, will return to the team for the 2020 season.Helton has been in the hot seat for the last few seasons, and many expected that he would be fired after USC hired Mike Bohn as their new athletic director last month. According to multiple reports, Bohn made the decision to retain Helton, and informed the team of his decision early on Wednesday afternoon. Drug Can Curb Dementias Delusions, Researchers Find After news broke, Bohn tweeted that Helton would continue on as head coach and that he would work closely with Helton to look at all aspects of the football enterprise next season.Bohn noted that changes in Heltons coaching staff could occur this offseason as well. Ironically, former AD Lynn Swann said the same thing after his announcement to retain Helton came last season after USC failed to secure a winning record for the first time in almost 20 years. 3 Dead After Pearl Harbor Sailor Shoots Civilians, Himself Helton fired his offensive coordinator, and famously hired Kliff Kingsbury, who then bolted for the Arizona Cardinals after less than a month on the job. Helton hired Graham Harrell to replace him.Shortly after the news that Helton would return went public, reports that Harrell is a top target for many head coaching and offensive coordinator vacancies were released. UNLV was just one of a handful of programs reportedly interested in interviewing Harrell for their head coaching vacancy. Hong Kong Residents Living With Tear Gas Worry of Effects Helton likely saved his job after an 8-4 season, and a four-game winning streak since Bohn was announced as the new athletic director. The bounce back year came after the Trojans starting quarterback J.T. Daniels tore his ACL in the first half of the first game of the season.Despite losing four games, including a blowout to Oregon, USC defeated No. 5 ranked Utah ranked No. 10 at the time, 30-23 in an impressive victory with their third-string quarterback in September.Its possible that Bohn reached out to potential replacements for Helton to gauge interest in the job should it have become available. One of the biggest drawbacks Bohn faced, was the more than $20 million in buyouts the university would have to pay to Helton and his coaching staff should he have fired him.That $20 million also does not include the buyout that USC would have to pay to another university should they have hired one of the many rumored candidates that currently are employed throughout college football. Penn States James Franklin, Iowa States Matt Campbell, Baylors Matt Rhule, and Utahs Kyle Whittingham were all rumored candidates that are currently under contract with their own universities.Another mitigating factor in the decision to retain Helton could be because of the recent scandals that have struck the university and the athletic department. In addition to academic scandals, the athletic program has been directly involved with two separate federal investigations recently.First, former USC assistant basketball coach, Tony Blands guilty plea in the felony charge of conspiracy to commit bribery, and second the role of the athletic department in the Operation Varsity Blues admission scandal that has featured famous celebrities like Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin.Throughout these scandals, Helton has remained as a calming force and a role model for his players. Helton is just 40-21 overall as the head coach of USC and is a paltry 13-11 in the last two seasons. He has won the Pac 12 title once in his tenure, and the Rose Bowl in 2016. He has never made the College Football Playoff.Photo Credit: Icon Sportswire via Getty Images This story uses functionality that may not work in our app. Click here to open the story in your web browser.

How Good Are the Lakers? We're About to Find Out
12/01/2019 9:43pm

The Los Angeles Lakers are at the quarter pole of the arduous 82-game NBA season, and through the first 20 games, they find themselves at the top of the standings with the best record in the league.Its simple for fans to point at the Lakers 17-3 record and think that this team is destined to raise their 17th banner in franchise history. However, were here to inform you to pump the breaks, and proceed with caution before you crown them Champions.The Lakers have been living on easy street to start the season. According to Power Rankings Guru, the Lakers had the second easiest schedule through their first 20 games of the season.Granted, you can only play the teams on your schedule, and the Lakers have done a tremendous job of taking care of business. Entering Sunday, the Lakers were riding a ten-game winning streak, albeit all against teams with a losing record.Its quite the strenuous task to run off 10 consecutive wins in the NBA, regardless of the opponents record. A streak of that magnitude requires intense focus and a consistency that most teams in the league lack.For example, the Los Angeles Clippers, a team that many expect to be in the NBA Finals come June, just lost by double-digits to the San Antonio Spurs 7-14 with Kawhi Leonard and Paul George in the starting lineup. Less than a week ago, the Lakers beat those same Spurs on their home court, 114-104.Its human nature to overlook an opponent, or have a slip up once in a while. The Lakers deserve credit for their mindset ahead of each and every game, and their uncanny ability to never let go of the rope, even when they find themselves down by double-digits in hostile territory.Thats been our mindset from the beginning, said LeBron James. Every month is its own challenge. We played great in November 14-1, and we want to play great next month as well. We have to focus on whats here right now. We want to have a championship mindset every time we step on the floor.The Lakers can have a championship mindset, but in order to become champions they have to beat the best teams in the league, and as of now, they have yet to prove they can beat the better teams in the NBA on a consistent basis. As of the publication of this story, the Lakers have played just six games against teams currently with a .500 record or better. They are3-3 in those games.By comparison, they have played a total of 14 games against teams who are currently under .500. They are a perfect 14-0 in those games.I think we were tested. There wasnt a lot of games going in with teams with winning records, but this is the NBA. Teams can play above their current record and we saw that several different times this month, said Lakers head coach Frank Vogel. Teams give us their best shot and you can get beat in those situations. To our guys credit, they handled that level of adversity and were able to overcome those games and kept getting Ws.Despite his coach clearly looking at the records of his opponents, LeBron James says he and his teammates dont pay attention to the standings.Were not paying attention to records. Not ours or the opponents, said James. Were just going out and playing and trying to get better every game. We cant worry about what the record is or who we are playing. Ironically, until today, the Lakers best win of the season was a double-digit comeback against the same Mavericks team that manhandled them on Sunday.We knew they wanted to get some get-back after we beat them on their floor, said James of the loss. Now theyve beat us on our floor. Thats a very good team, theyre very well coached.Now, the Lakers will be tested. PRG believes the Lakers have the sixth toughest schedule the remainder of the season. Outside of the Minnesota Timberwolves who have the toughest schedule, the other teams ahead of them all have losing records. That means that all the top teams chasing them in the standings have much easier roads ahead than the Lakers do.Nine of the Lakers next 14 games will be against teams with a winning record. That includes road games against the Nuggets 13-4, the Jazz 12-8, the Heat 14-5, the Pacers 12-7, and the reigning Eastern Conference leaders, the Bucks 17-3.Well know a lot about our team after the next few games, said Lakers guard Quinn Cook. Well just take it one day at a time. We get everybodys best shot, so we cant take a night off. It doesnt matter if a team is at the top or the bottom of the West or East. So we have to come out prepared and come out hungry. Its easy to get complacent, but our leaders and coaches wont let us do that.On Sunday, after a double-digit loss at home to the Dallas Mavericks, the leaders of the Lakers locker room talked about not losing two games in a row this season. Thats easier said then done with the schedule ahead of them. Its not a matter of if the Lakers will face adversity this season, but when, and when that time comes, how will they handle it.Our whole thing is we dont want to lose two in a row, ever, said Anthony Davis emphatically. We will always have a bounce back game. We dont need a loss to redeem ourselves, or try and pick ourselves back up. We can do that with a win, and weve done that.Obviously, its a little bit more challenging with the teams coming up. Were confident in our abilities. Any time we step on the floor we feel like we can win each game. Its going to be fun the next couple weeks.Veteran forward Jared Dudley is probably the only Lakers player waiting for that suffering to happen.I cant wait to see this room then, Dudley said when asked about the possibility of tough times ahead.Good thing for Dudley, he shouldnt have to wait much longer.Photo Credit: Getty Images
