HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – Just hours after stepping down, two
high-ranking Penn State administrators are facing arraignment on
charges they lied to a grand jury investigating former defense
coordinator Jerry Sandusky and failed to properly report suspected
child abuse.
University President Graham Spanier announced late Sunday that
Athletic Director Tim Curley and Gary Schultz, the school’s senior
vice president for business and finance, are leaving their posts.
According to Spanier, Curley requested to be placed on
administrative leave so he could devote time to his defense and
Schultz will be going back into retirement. Both men have
maintained they are innocent of any wrongdoing in connection with
the probe into whether Sandusky sexually abused eight boys over a
15-year period.

UNDATED (AP) – LSU and Oklahoma State have the inside track for
playing in the BCS championship game. The Tigers remain No. 1 in
the latest standings after beating Alabama 9-6 over the weekend
while the Cowboys move up a spot to No. 2 to replace the Crimson
Tide, which checks in at No. 3 this week. Oklahoma State held off
No. 17 Kansas State 52-45.
LSU has an easy nonconference game against Western Kentucky on
Saturday, followed by a game at Mississippi, which is last in the
SEC West. The Tigers finish the regular season at home against
Arkansas, which is eighth in the BCS standings and not out of the
running in the West.
Oklahoma State is on the road the next two weeks, at Texas Tech
and Iowa State. The Cowboys have a week off before finishing their
regular season at home against Oklahoma on Dec. 3, the same day as
the SEC title game.
Alabama has games at Mississippi State and at Auburn sandwiched
around a home game against Georgia Southern

Players say they won’t accept Stern’s latest offer
NEW YORK (AP) – NBA Commissioner David Stern has given the union
until Wednesday to accept a deal that offers players up to 51
percent of basketball-related income. It’s a figure the union
insists is fiction. Regardless, it will drop to 47 percent
Wednesday if players don’t accept the current offer by the
league-imposed deadline.
Union president Derek Fisher calls Stern’s proposal an ultimatum
that is not acceptable to players.
The offer came following hours of negotiations over the weekend.
