Lakers Draft Workouts: Matt Steinbrook | Los Angeles Lakers
It's more Matt Stainbrook coverage, this time with 100% more e's than should actually be in his name. Honestly, if you are a professional organization, don't you take the time to spell your recruits names correctly? Maybe Kobe wants everyone to have an e now. Maybe it was a play on beer drinking. It's hard to say.
Nate Soria Named Louisville Slugger Freshman All-American - Xavier University Official Athletic Site
I won't spoil the numbers here, you can click through to see them, but this kid pounds. More than that, he represents Xavier's first ever postseason All-American in baseball.
Neither of these sites mention Coach Mack, who hasn't popped up in consideration for the ISU job anywhere other than this hacky list from the Des Moines Register. (Best quote: " Would Cyclone brass be wasting time on a coach some say is someday destined for Ohio State?") That list was, of course, instantly regurgitated by Cincinnati's own Enquirer, but no reputable sources are mentioning Coach Mack going to Iowa State.
These two go together because they are part of the spreading epidemic of assault involving college players. Brandon Austin may never play again after being accused of sexual assault on both the Providence and Oregon campuses. Austin feels victimized by his own actions and would like another shot. Mo Alie-Cox was cleared of charges that he punched a woman in the face when, according to a legal analyst, "the video [of the incident] had to have given the prosecutors enough reasonable doubt" that he had not committed the act.
And look at that commitment to playing in state! Why, the Buckeyes play...they play... well, no one from Ohio. Once again, Thad Matta is too much of a coward to even take on teams like Akron or Miami, let alone Xavier, the best program in the state last year.
As Rob Dauster points out, it's June, so there's not a lot to talk about.
