Spikes: 'Definitely embarrassed' by tape

FOXBORO — Patriots rookie linebacker Brandon Spikes spoke Thursday morning at Gillette Stadium and for the first time addressed the sex tape that made national headlines shortly before the start of the regular season.

 

"I definitely was embarrassed, but we already addressed the issue so I'm just trying to move on," he said.

 

Although no disciplinary action was taken by the league against Spikes, the sexually explicit video reportedly resulted in Reebok dropping a proposed marketing deal with the rookie.

Austin Rivers commits to Duke

Doc Rivers' son Austin, one of the most highly sought-after recruits in the class of 2011 has committed to Duke to play for the Blue Devils next season. Rivers chose Duke over North Carolina and Kansas. 

 

Doc Rivers was asked about the reports after the Celtics' practice Thursday.

 

"He's leaning there [Duke]," said Rivers. "Most likely he'll commit in the next few days, but it's not official yet. I'll wait and let him do it."

Rivers on D&C: Let's go year to year

Doc Rivers joined the Dennis & Callahan show to talk about the upcoming season and what his future holds. Rivers acknowledged that he was close to not returning, but his family helped convince him to come back for one more year. "We're sitting around, and the two kids are in high school, and the first thing they said was, 'Listen, this is not on us, number one. And you're a coach, that's what you do,'" Rivers said. "My young one was the best, he actually said it. He said, 'I can't imagine you leaving the group that you have.' He said I would feel awful about that if you left Kevin Garnett and that group."

 

On his future, Rivers said that he wanted to take it one year at a time. "I told Danny [Ainge] and them, I didn't want to go through the extension and walk away," Rivers said. "I said let's just do it year to year. That's what it's going to be anyway. The risk is on me, really. It's not them. You know...

DeFilippo: 'We can compete with anybody'

Boston College athletic director Gene DeFilippo joined Dennis & Callahan to talk about this weekend's game with Notre Dame and a number of other topics around college sports. On the issue of whether BC can compete for a national title in football, DeFilippo said, "If West Virginia can play for a national title and Georgia Tech can play for a national title as they did several years back, then we can too. I'm convinced that with 85 scholarships, we can find 25 student athletes a year that our kind of kids: that are smart, that are tough and that will work hard. They're out there. The last five years the team that's won the most games in the Atlantic Coast Conference is Virginia Tech and second is Boston College. The last eight times we've played them until this year they had won four and we've won four. We can compete with anybody."

 

DeFilippo acknowledged that Notre Dame week is different from other games. "There's an...
