Peverley won't practice, may play Friday
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON -- Both Andrew Ference and Rich Peverley were held out of Wednesday's practice at Ristuccia Arena. Bruins coach Claude Julien said after the practice that Ference is under the weather, while Peverley is still dealing with an ailment that is healed with rest. 

The Bruins had Tuesday off, and Julien said that Peverley will not practice at all this week. The team has yet to decide whether he will play Friday against the Panthers. 

"Ference is battling the famous flu bug," Julien said. "Peverley is maintenance. Again, same thing. We're having a good look here at our schedule and what it may do for him. We're going to keep him off here for the next couple of days, and tomorrow is certainly another one of those days. We'll decide whether he's in on Friday, and if not, that will give him at least a good week. We're going to be making a decision on him regarding his situation." 

Peverley missed two games...

Yale FB coach resigns after Rhodes issue

Yale football coach Tim Williams resigned Wednesday following a late-season controversy regarding claims he made about being a candidate for a Rhodes Scholarship during his time as a student at Stanford.

"I am extremely proud of my academic, athletic and coaching career," Williams said in a statement. "If there was confusion created, I take full responsibility. The timing of this inquiry has been difficult for everyone. At this point I believe it is in the best interest of my student-athletes and Yale University that I step down."

The school has been investigating whether Williams lied on his resume when he referred to himself as a Rhodes candidate.

Williams acknowledged that he never applied for the scholarship, although he says Stanford had encouraged him to do so.

"I considered the opportunity, sought advice and was encouraged to apply by faculty members and my coach Bill Walsh, but I did not apply,...

Mashup: Buble skates with, defends Canucks

Popular Canadian singer Michael Buble, a lifelong Canucks fan, skated with the team Tuesday at practice. The 36-year-old hit the post on a shootout attempt against Roberto Luongo and called the experience "just the greatest day of my life, really."

Buble, a multiple Grammy Award-winner who was the musical guest on "Saturday Night Live" over the weekend, said he doesn't understand how the Canucks can be reviled around the league.

"There is no way these guys could be the most hated team in the NHL because they're class acts," Buble said. "Those are just ugly stories that the media keeps telling back East."

The Patriots are expected to sign defensive back Vincent Fuller, according to multiple reports. The 6-foot-1, 192-pounder was a fourth-round pick of Tennessee in 2005, and has played in 76 games, making five starts over the course of his career. His best year came in 2009, when he made 34 tackles (27 solo) and had one sack, seven passes defensed and three interceptions with the Titans.

Source: Bogar to become Sox bench coach

According a major league source, Tim Bogar will be named the new bench for the Red Sox under new manager Bobby Valentine. Bogar, who has been with the organization since 2009, will be moved from his previous spot as the team's third base coach, where he had served for the past two seasons. The 45-year-old spent his first year with the Red Sox as their first base coach.

Bogar replaces DeMarlo Hale, who has moved on to coach third base for the Baltimore Orioles. According to CSNNE, who was first to report the adjustment in the Red Sox major league coaching staff, Jerry Royster is a candidate to replace Bogar as the team's third base coach.

Prior to joining the Red Sox, Bogar served as a quality assurance coach for the Tampa Bay Rays for the 2008 season, during which time he served as the spring training coordinator, a task he may undertake in his new role as bench coach. The veteran of nine major league seasons also managed in the Houston and...
