Anna Aagenes: Coaches Need to Be Public Allies of LGBT Athletes
Huffington Post Sports - almost 4 years
Ever since I was a kid, I have looked up to my coaches as if they could do no wrong. Even in college, after I learned (as most kids do) that my coaches were human too, I wanted to do everything in my power to please my coach. If my track coach told me to run 20 repeats of 200 meters (yes, this was one of our workouts) or wear purple socks on race day, you'd better believe I would do what she told me. I listened to every word she said, and I did what she asked me to do (most of the time). Her word was gospel. As coaches, you ask us as athletes to go above and beyond what we think we are capable of doing. Both my high school and college coaches were instrumental to both my athletic and personal development. On our teams, we athletes don't just learn how to run fast, throw far or jump higher. Sports teach us values and help us build character. Many of the values that inform my current professional career were values that my coaches taught me as part of being a good teammate: ...

Happy Monday everyone, here's my Top 5 for April 1, 2013 from Len Berman at www.ThatsSports.com. 1. Quick Hits And the Final Four next weekend in Atlanta will have: Syracuse vs. Michigan and Louisville vs. Wichita State. Louisville is the favorite to win it all. Louisville's Kevin Ware underwent surgery after breaking his leg in two places during the game against Duke. In the women's tournament, defending champ Baylor got upset by Louisville. Baylor coach Kim Mulkey ripped the officials. The baseball season began last night with the Houston Astros winning their American league debut, 8-2 over Texas. There are 12 more openers today.

Fox News - over 4 years
Smiling from her wheelchair, a 10-year-old girl with a rare disorder watched from the front row at the White House as President Barack Obama congratulated her beloved Baylor University's women's basketball team on winning this year's NCAA championship. Haley Klepper, of Waco, Texas, formed a bond with the Baylor Lady Bears during their 40-0 season. She was recently diagnosed with a disorder of the mitochondria, which power the body's cells, said her mother, Brenda. "She's a Baylor bear," said Brittney Griner, Baylor's 6-foot-8 center. "Just seeing her fight every day and hear her story and what she went through, it makes us fight. It makes us want to go hard." After Baylor Coach Kim Mulkey learned of Haley's condition from her father, the team agreed to mentor her and her sister, Hannah. When Mulkey first introduced the little girl to the team, "there wasn't a dry eye in the locker room," she said. "It put ...

NCAA Accepts Baylor’s Self-Imposed Penalties
WTAW News Talk 1620 - almost 5 years
 WACO, Texas (AP) _ The NCAA has put Baylor on three years of probation after a three-year investigation into hundreds of impermissible telephone calls and text messages sent by basketball coaches to prep recruits. The NCAA and school released the details Wednesday, and the violations were considered to be major infractions. The NCAA said men’s coach Scott Drew failed to monitor his program and will be suspended for two Big 12 games next season in addition to recruiting restrictions. Women’s coach Kim Mulkey, whose team won the national championship last week, also received recruiting restrictions. All the penalties were proposed by Baylor and accepted by the NCAA infractions committee. The investigation reviewed nearly 900,000 phone and text message records, and found that 738 texts and 528 calls were impermissible under NCAA rules.           (Copyright 2012 by The Associated Press.  All Rights Reserved.)

Saints: Just As Suspended As Last Week
Wall Street Journal - almost 5 years
Getty Images There’s no truth to the rumors of Saints coach Sean Payton taking semaphore lessons. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell provided a quick, unintended lesson for law students everywhere on Monday: When a judge who issued a sentence hears an appeal, the sentence isn’t likely to change. That’s the predictable outcome of the New Orleans Saints bounty case. Goodell upheld the punishments levied on the Saints for their role in creating a bounty program. Starting on April 16, coach Sean Payton will serve a year-long suspension, while general manager Mickey Loomis and Joe Vitt will be officially banned at the start of the season. Gregg Williams, the former defensive coordinator now with St. Louis accused of running the program, did not appeal. (The Saints declined to comment when reached by the Journal.) So what did New Orleans gain by delaying the inevitable? NFL.com’s Steve Wyche points out that by deciding to appeal, Payton bought the Saints a few more weeks to prepare ...
