Air base playfully jabs Mark Ingram’s speed after encounter with security dog during USO tour


Quote
On Wednesday, incredible video surfaced of a security work dog tackling the former Alabama running back and current New Orleans Saints player at Aviano Air Base in Italy as part of Ingram’s experience on a USO tour. Later, the dog’s proud owners at the air base used Twitter to spike the ball of sorts after the animal’s viral victory.

He played football at Auburn, Louisville, and Murray State, but left all three following an arrest.

Former @Vol_Sports AD @mikehamilton63 to area's ADs: 'Let's do lunch' https://www.tennessean.com/story/sports/college/vanderbilt/2018/05/10/tennessee-ad-mike-hamilton-vanderbilt-david-williams-belmont-scott-corley-lipscomb-hutcheson-tsu/593213002/

Former Tennessee athletics director Mike Hamilton knew the area's college athletics directors have a big appetite when it comes to learning about one another's issues.

So he invited them to lunch. The group put it all out on the table. They chewed on the hot topics they were dealing with individually, compared notes and offered advice when they could.

It was informal and informative.

It went so well that Hamilton, who now lives in Nashville, decided to gather the gang on a regular basis. The ADs meet for their dutch treat meal once each quarter.

For Hamilton, who resigned at UT in 2011, the meetings are a way to stay engaged in college athletics. He is now executive director of Show Hope, an orphan care and adoption ministry, which was started by Steven Curtis Chapman and his wife, Mary Beth.

For the rest of the group, it's a great networking forum.

"I was a little bit surprised that a lot of the folks just didn't know each other," Hamilton said. "They're somewhat in the same line of work, and it's been fun to watch that beginning to develop."

...former UG QB Andy Johnson, 65

The emotional outpouring from Bulldog Nation this week in response to the passing of Andy Johnson provided a stark contrast to the cool, modest demeanor of Georgia football’s most low-key legend.

...starred in both football and baseball at UGA, and was, in the estimation of many — including Vince Dooley  — the Dawgs’ best running quarterback ever.

Longtime Atlanta sportscaster Bill Hartman: “Andy was the best athlete ever to come out of Athens, and that covers a lot of ground.”

... CM Newton

Scarblog: University of Alabama basketball program made a stand of its own for civil rights


Quote
As a junior in high school, Leon Douglas got a mailgram from George Wallace. One of the best basketball prospects in state history got a recruiting pitch from the governor less than a decade after Wallace's stand in the schoolhouse door at the University of Alabama.

Douglas remembers as if he still can't believe it.

"It stated that I was an important resource of the state of Alabama and I really needed to go to Alabama or Auburn because I was the type of resource the state didn't need to lose," he said.

How did Douglas and his family react?

"It was not a positive reaction," he said. "My mom and I looked at each other. I wasn't going to stay in this state."

But minds and attitudes can change. Douglas and other basketball players who grew up in Alabama during a turbulent and tragic era helped change them.

The roster of pioneers is longer than the wingspan of the 6-foot-10 center. It includes Henry Harris, the focus of an Iron Bowl of basketball recruiting battle who became the first black scholarship athlete at Auburn in 1968. Wendell Hudson, who lived close enough to the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham to feel the 1963 bomb blast that killed four innocent little girls, became the first black scholarship athlete at Alabama a year later.

Douglas himself did stay in his home state to play college basketball at Alabama and make history of his own. He was part of the 1973-74 Alabama team that became the first in the SEC to start five black players - and win the SEC championship in the process.

How did the school that used to play its games in Foster Auditorium, the site of Wallace's symbolic but futile stand against integrating the university, help move this state forward from the terrible events of 1963? Let the Alabama head coach who integrated the school's athletics program explain.

"I was just a basketball coach trying to survive," C.M. Newton said. "I had no thoughts of setting social standards."

Necessity was the mother of integration and so much more.

There were Alabama basketball fans, particularly from Birmingham, who came to his high school games and let him know how much they wanted him to play for the Crimson Tide. He met Hudson, Odums and Cleveland, black players who overcame their own misgivings to sign with Alabama before him.

"We started talking," Douglas said. "We said, if we got all the best players in Alabama, we could change the climate."

Douglas began to see a different kind of wisdom behind the message in that mailgram from Wallace. Staying home became an opportunity "to make a statement."

"We knew Coach Newton (signed us) because he wanted to win," Douglas said. "He wasn't trying to be a trailblazer. You have to respect a man for putting five black starters on the court when others said it was a no-no."

...Clifford Rozier

Clifford Rozier, a former UNC and Louisville basketball star and first-round pick of the Golden State Warriors, died at age 45 on Friday after suffering a heart attack

Quote
McDonald’s All-American who was named the state of Florida’s Mr. Basketball in 1990, Rozier starred at Louisville from 1992-94 after transferring from North Carolina. The 6-foot-11 center led Denny Crum’s Cardinals to back-to-back Sweet 16 appearances, averaging 15.7 points and 10.9 rebounds per game during the 1992-93 season and increasing that to 18.1 points and 11.1 rebounds the following year.

Rozier was a two-time Metro Conference player of the year at Louisville and a consensus first-team All-American during the 1993-94 season, joining the likes of Jason Kidd (Cal), Grant Hill (Duke), Donyell Marshall (UConn) and The Big Dog.

Once his basketball career ended, Rozier endured tough times, mental health problems and drug abuse. When he wasn’t in jail, he often lived on the streets.

When the Lexington Herald-Leader caught up with Rozier in 2010, he was broke and living in a Bradenton halfway house, but he was content with his modest life.

“I’m happy,” he told the newspaper. “I have joy. I have understanding. I have knowledge. I’m learning. I’m becoming friendly. I’m submitting myself and being subdued.”

RIP Clifford Rozier. One of only six @LouisvilleMBB individuals to earn consensus All-America status & a terrific rebounder. If he couldn't immediately grab a rebound, he'd try to tip it around & keep it alive until he could.
