High school senior Andrew Vold thought he’d won $5,000 when he landed a hole-in-one at a charity event in Ham Lake, Minnesota. Instead, he lost his high school eligibility — and now the sponsor of the contest is refusing to pay up.

The next round of conference reshuffling is officially underway – the long-rumored departure of Texas A&M from the Big 12 Conference was finally announced by the school today. It will take effect next June. Will a move to the SEC follow? Probably.
The NFL Network wired Patriots coach Bill Belichick for sound for an entire year, and they plan on turning it into a mini-movie called A Football Life. This week they released their mini-movie’sÂ trailer, and Belichick, who up to this point has been known mostly for his tactical genius and emotional barrenness, displays a surprising array of human-like personality traits. Video, after the jump.
The reaction to that tweet you see above seemed to be “Did a prominent NFL player really just admit to almost bringing his gun to work today?” Thankfully, Darnell Dockett cleared up the confusion with his subsequent tweet. Thanks, Darnell!
Can nothing go right financially for California-based MLB teams? We know all about the Dodgers’ woes, leading to fretting over whether the team would even make payroll.

Former boxing champion Oscar de la Hoya opened up about his struggles with drugs, alcohol, and infidelity in an interview with the Univision TV network published Wednesday.
Saying he hit “rock bottom” recently, de la Hoya admitted addictions to cocaine and alcohol in the past two years, issues that led him to seek rehab — and consider suicide. He also revealed a period of separation with his wife, one he says was due to infidelity fueled by his drug problems.
Charles Robinson is a Yahoo! Sports investigative reporter who broke the newest story of improper benefits in big-time collegiate athletics when he detailed the exploits of convicted Ponzi schemer (and former Miami Hurricanes booster) Nevin Shapiro.
From afar, it would appear, as Fox Sports national columnist Jason Whitlock likes to say, that Robinson “did the damn thing.”
A University of Miami booster, incarcerated for his role in a $930 million Ponzi scheme, has told Yahoo! Sports he provided thousands of impermissible benefits to at least 72 athletes from 2002 through 2010.
That sure feels like the damn thang got diddy did.
But wait! Whitlock, in a column published Wednesday, says that, no, the dern diddly did not get Dirk Diggled.
Kansas State’s New Environmentally-Conscious Mascot Is The Talk Of College Football, And Not In A Good Way
It took a while for Kansas State’s new co-mascot, EcoKat, to come to the forefront of the college football scene, but it’s happened in a big way today. And the Wildcats are probably wishing it hadn’t. EcoKat will join forces with KSU’s usual mascot, Willie the Wildcat, in order to “set out to reduce K-State’ s energy usage by 15 percent over the next four years by educating students about what they can do to cut back and conserve.” Good message. The execution? That’s another story.
ESPN football expert Matt Millen expects Jarrett Lee to fill in for Miami’s Jacory Harris when the Hurricane quarterback sits out his NCAA-mandated one game suspension. That’s not very likely.
