Ohio State has risen - all the way to No 1.A day after the top two teams in the AP Top 25 lost, the Buckeyes jumped two spots Sunday in the media poll and became the third school this season to hold the No. 1 ranking."We've improved each week but we understand that the only poll that counts is the last one," Ohio State coach Jim Tressel said in a statement.The Buckeyes (7-0) beat Kent State 48-3 Saturday and have played only one team that's been in the rankings at any point this season.
Tennessee quarterback Vince Young left Sunday's game against Tampa Bay with an apparent leg injury after scrambling for a 2-yard gain and being pushed out of bounds midway through the third quarter.Young began limping just as defensive tackle Jovan Haye gave him a shove as last year's NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year crossed the sideline. Young stumbled forward before falling to the ground.
Tony Gonzalez, who admits he "hated football" when he first played as a youngster, has now caught more touchdown passes than any tight end in NFL history.The eight-time Pro Bowler of the Kansas City Chiefs caught a 3-yard pass from Damon Huard in the first quarter against Cincinnati on Sunday, breaking the record of 62 touchdown receptions set by Shannon Sharpe from 1990-03.The sellout crowd in Arrowhead Stadium gave him a standing ovation when his feat was announced a few minutes later.
Telephone calls to basketball recruits have landed Indiana coach Kelvin Sampson in trouble again and will cost the team a scholarship and Sampson a scheduled $500,000 raise.Indiana announced Sunday that the school's basketball staff exceeded NCAA limits on calls to recruits during the past year - a period during which Sampson was prohibited from off-campus recruiting because of excessive recruiting calls when he was coaching at Oklahoma.
