Athletics director Ross Bjork checked Freeze’s phone records and found an important pattern. Bjork said Freeze admitted the misconduct before resigning, even though when the new information came public, the coach disappeared. Nutt’s attorney sent an e-mail to the school’s general counsel, referring to the call Freeze made to the school and saying how embarrassing and difficult the situation was. To all the press, Hugh always kept the position that was a mistake and that probably he called the wrong number.

The fact the call lasted for 1 minute, makes the theory of the “misdial” quite unreasonable. Nutt’s explained Freeze and Bjork were among the Ole Miss officials who tried to smear him, by telling the reporters many violations were going on the NCAA infractions against the Rebels. The agency updated the Allegations charged and they were 21 violations with 17 involving the former head coach Hugh Freeze. He finished with a 39-25 record through five seasons at Ole Miss, a statistic that is highlighted by a 10-3 mark and Sugar Bowl victory in 2015 season. However, the team struggled in 2016, with a 5-7 mark and failing to make a bowl game since 2011. Matt Luke will take over as the interim head coach until they find a replacement.

Jamaica on the Semifinales of the Gold Cup

Jamaica qualified as semifinalist this Thursday of the Gold Cup. With a 2-1 win against Canada at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona with ‘50th minute goal. The goal, put Jamaica up 2-0 and gave him the necessary space to stand fierce against Les Rouges. Although, Canada controlled the majority of the ball possession but it’s attacking skills where careless. The only highlight of the second-half was the 62-minutes strike from Junior Hoilett, who almost netted past Andre Black to trim Jamaica’s lead in half.

Despite outshooting Jamaica, 9 shots for Canada and 4 for Jamaica on the first 45 minutes, Canada managed one shot on goal and started committing errors that resulted in transition opportunities for the green-yellow team. Canada was also in trouble because it had to play from behind after Shaun Francis capitalized Darren Mattocks cross at the top. Jamaica took the front six minutes into regulation.

Canada had the opportunity to double Jamaica’s lead 10 minutes after they slipped the Canadian defense, but it’s goalkeeper Milan Borjan stood tall and made a save to keep the scoreboard as it was. After that Williams doubles the Rasta’s lead and proved to be nervy affair as Canada was attacking. The reigning MLS Goalkeeper of the Year was an important key for the success of Jamaica, and he will need to come up with another espectacular game so the team could reach the claimed final. Jamaica did an excellent job back then in 2015 as well. The team has a been a huge surprise and we can expect big things from now on. On Saturday, Jamaica will meet Mexico for a spot to the final.

Derrick Rose with the Cavaliers

The point guards Derrick Rose and the team Cleveland Cavaliers are in talks regarding a one year contract. Rose is one of the players remaining in free agency after 2016-2017 season with the New York Knicks. The perfect amount to pay Rose in the next season (2017-18) is an estimated of $2.5 million. The team could also use a portion of the taxpayer exception or sign Rose to the veteran’s minimum so the could afford easily the money.

Last season was the best for Rose since 5 years ago, as he averaged 18.0, 4.4 assists and 3.8 rebounds per game. And with a shot of 47.1 percent from the floor, which was his best mark since 2009.

The veteran player is no longer close to an MVP player, but he can be a great weapon for the Cavs. Cleveland acquired Deron William last season as a backup for the point guard, however he remains as a free agent, which makes easier for Rose adquisition. The 28 years old player could play alongside Kyrie Irving (who isn’t a regular point guard) for long stretches, giving the team an excellent lineup consisting of Rose, Irving, LeBron James, Kevin, Love and Tristan Thompson for next season. The Cavs have been suffering a salary cap situation and turmoil in the office, whats makes this improvements offseason very difficult. But Rose will be a huge new acquirement that will made the team level up for next season.

Cubs and White Sox trade Jose Quintana

Cubs and White Sox trade Jose Quintana

Jose Quintana is heading to the North Side of town. The two Chicago franchises made this Thursday a surprise trade: The White Sox sent lefty starter Jose Quintana to the Cubs in exchange for another remarkable prospect haul for ChiSox GM Rick Hahn, including: outfielder Eloy Jimenez (the No. 5 overall prospect per ESPN’s Keith Law) plus pitcher Dylan Cease and infielders Matt Rose and Bryant Flete.

This is the first all-Chicago trade since November 2006, when the White Sox sent Neal Cotts to the Cubs for David Aardsma and Carlos Vasquez. However, it is the highest-profile deal between the teams since the White Sox sent a young Sammy Sosa and pitcher Ken Patterson to the Cubs for George Bell in 1992.

From Online Sportsbook, Casino Betting, Sports Odds to Racebook Gambling, WagerWeb offers you the online gambling options.

Rumors about Quintana’s trade have been around since the offseason, when the White Sox begun their rebuild by trading Chris Sale and Adam Eaton. Those two deals achieved huge return packages, and Thursday’s trade of Quintana ensured the same.

Quintana boosts the Cubs’ starting rotation, which has struggled after being excellent during last season’s World Series run. Quintana was a 2016 All Star and was one of the American League’s top pitchers in recent years. This season, his numbers are slightly down. He has a 4.49 ERA in 18 starts after posting a career-best 3.20 mark in 2016.

Jimenez and Cease, along with other acquisitions in this deal like first baseman Matt Rose and infielder Bryant Flete, have accomplished White Sox general manager Rick Hahn’s goal of replenishing the farm system by trading one of his team’s top assets.

This deal helps the Cubs to stay in the National League Central race. The North Siders are 5.5 games behind the first-place Milwaukee Brewers and need a good impulse after a first half of the season full of struggles.

Fowler, Harrington and Poulter shine as McIlroy fades

Scottish Open: Fowler, Harrington and Poulter shine as McIlroy fades

Rickie Fowler has made a solid start in his bid for a second Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open title in three years, as Rory McIlroy’s struggles kept going at Dundonald Links.

Fowler fired a confident 67 to join Ian Poulter and Padraig Harrington on five-under par. That is two adrift of first-round leader Mikko Ilonen, while McIlroy stumbled to a 74 and needed a sub-70 score on Friday to avoid missing the cut for the third time in four starts. Fowler outshone playing-partners McIlroy and Henrik Stenson, as the American was one of only four players in the 156-man field to keep a bogey off his card.

Fowler was victorious at Gullane in 2015 but did not defend his title last year due to scheduling complications. He got up and running this time with a birdie at the 13th – his fourth – and added another at the next before breaking a run of six pars with three consecutive birdies from the third. World’s number 10 parred in to keep himself matched at the top with Shinkwin, Australian Andrew Dodt and Poulter, who followed a birdie at 13 with an eagle at the long 14th before back-to-back bogeys stopped his momentum. The English veteran bounced back with four birdies, though, in a perfect front-nine 32 which raised him back into a share of second, with Harrington later joining the group along with Paul Peterson.

Harrington birdied three of the first five holes and got to five under at the 11th before dropping shots at 12 and 15 either side of another birdie at the 13th. The Irishman rolled in his seventh birdie putt of the round at 17, defying the cold and rain later in the day, although he could not take advantage of the par-five last as he continued two shots behind Ilonen. The Finn birdied 14 and 15 in a solid back-nine 34. Later, he rushed into the absolute lead with a run of five birdies in six holes from the first, in the worst of the conditions, and completed his best round of the season with three good pars.

Decided to atone for his early exit at his own tournament last week, McIlroy bogeyed 11 and 12 and then lost his second place at the 13th, which led to a double-bogey six and left him four over after four holes. The bad streak ended with a birdie at the next only to give the shot back with a scrappy six at the 18th, but he assembled on the front nine and made good fours at the third and fifth before rolling in a 25-foot putt for another gain at seven, although a wayward tee-shot at the ninth led to his fourth bogey of the day.
