Ohio State left on ice after NCAA hearing

From Comcast SportsNet Friday, August 12, 2011

INDIANAPOLIS (AP)Ohio States day in court has ended. Now it must wait for a month or two to find out the verdict.

A memorabilia-for-cash scandal that led to player suspensions, coach Jim Tressels forced resignation and the departure of star quarterback Terrelle Pryor led ultimately to Ohio States hearing before the NCAAs committee on infractions on Friday. Ohio State and NCAA officials, along with Tressel, were accompanied by a cadre of lawyers. They entered a downtown hotels security-guarded ballroom at 8:30 a.m. Except for a short mid-morning break, they continued for four hours before the meeting ended.

Now Ohio State must wait 6 to 8 weeks to find out its penalties.

Celtics' team plane receives bomb threat

BOSTON -- There was a bomb threat to the Boston Celtics’ team plane to Oklahoma City on Saturday afternoon, but no one was injured.

The incident will be investigated by NBA security which will work in conjunction with the FBI on this matter which was one of several hoaxes called into airports across the country on Saturday.

News of the bomb threat was first known when Celtics forward Jae Crowder posted an Instagram photo showing players departing the plane with the caption, “BOMB THREAT ON US”.

Celtics officials declined to comment on the matter and instead referred all bomb threat-related questions to the league office.

Messages to the league office were not immediately returned.
