Carroll on D&C: 'One guy' took down USC

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll talked to the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning, and one of the biggest topics of conversation was the NCAA sanctions against Carroll's previous employer, USC, and how Carroll believed that the Trojans were hurt by the actions of just one person (Lloyd Lake, who bestowed gifts on Reggie Bush in an effort to represent him) rather than it being an issue within the university.

 

"One guy in a community, well away from the university, decided to try and take advantage of a young man's good fortune while he's going to college if he could," Carroll said. "He found his way in, got some conversations going and relationships with Reggie [Bush] and somehow put us in a situation where now the player is involved, the family's involved. In a very distant sense, one guy really took down a university. I think it's worth everybody understanding that cares about college football that we can't let that happen...

Rangers still may be interested in Lowell

According to major league source familiar with the situation, the Texas Rangers continue to monitor the status of Mike Lowell, who is currently on the 15-day disabled list with soreness in his surgically-repaired right hip. The source suggests the Rangers may have increased interest in making a deal for Lowell depending how the market unfolds as the trade deadline draws closer. The Red Sox and Rangers had agreed to a trade for Lowell -- along with $9 million of the $12 million owned the infielder this season -- in December before Texas backed out of the deal because of concerns regarding the infielder's hip.

 

The Rangers have continued to talk with the Red Sox about Lowell throughout the season. With rookie first baseman Chris Davis hitting just .203 (after going 0-for-3 with a walk Thursday night), and Texas having to include first base prospect Justin Smoak in the Cliff Lee trade, there remains a potential need at first for Texas. The...

Bill Lee on Steinbrenner's death: 'Good'

Former Red Sox pitcher Bill Lee did not soften his stance on George Steinbrenner following the Yankees owner's death Tuesday. "As far as Steinbrenner's passing? Good," Lee said in an interview with New Hampshire TV station WMUR. Added Lee: "Trust me, if hell freezes over, he'll be skating."

 

Lee, who spent 10 of his 14 major league seasons with the Red Sox and took part in a number of heated battles vs. Steinbrenner's Yankees in the mid-1970s, claimed that Steinbrenner tried to have him banned from baseball. "He said I was an incompetent and I was bad for the game of baseball," Lee recalled. "Well, I'm not a convicted felon like George Steinbrenner, and he'll take that to his grave."

 

Lee continued his rant during an appearance on WEEI's Planet Mikey show Thursday night. "He tried to run me out of the game a long time ago, after the [1976 Red Sox-Yankees] brawl," Lee said...

Mashup: LeBron pals take pendant

The saga of the LeBron James pendant took an odd twist when the piece of jewelry was taken from the woman who said she paid $5 for it at a yard sale four years ago before realizing it was worth almost $10,000. Vaneisha Robinson, an amateur boxer from Akron, was fielding offers on eBay when she got a phone call from the mother of Maverick Carter, the CEO of James’ marketing company, saying that James wanted to but the pendant. But when she went to a meeting expecting to meet the NBA star, James wasn’t there, and she claims she was threatened and forced to surrender the item, which Carter said had been stolen from him. Police are investigating. Read more about that, plus check out videos, trivia and more, at Friday's Morning Mashup.

The Dana-Farber Genetics and Prevention Program offers advanced genetic tests to determine whether individuals are at risk for inherited forms of cancer. Dr. Garber says, “A visit to the Cancer Genetics and Prevention Clinic usually includes time with both a physician and a genetic counselor, both of whom have expertise in all forms of inherited cancer syndromes. We educate patients about cancer risk and its implications for them and their family members. Working with referring physicians, we design individualized programs to monitor for the earliest signs of cancer — diagnosing if it occurs, and, in many cases, preventing it from arising.”
