If you blinked, you weren’t sure who won the men’s 100-meter at the Track and Field World Championships on Sunday in Beijing. Usain Bolt crossed the finish line one hundredth of a second ahead of American, Justin Gatlin. The Jamaican was behind early in the race but closed the gap on Gatlin and crossed the line fractions of a step ahead to reclaim his title as the fastest man in the world. Bolt, the world-record holder in the 100-meters, struggled with a hamstring issue last year. Gatlin, who had not lost a 100-meter race in two years, was seen as the favorite coming in to the race.

Baylor head football coach, Art Briles, is in hot water after former-Baylor football player Sam Ukwuachu was convicted on Friday for raping a Baylor University soccer player in October 2013. Ukwuachu, who was an All-American at Boise State, transferred to Baylor in 2013 after being dismissed from Boise over accusations of sexually assaulting his then-girlfriend.
Before Ukwuachu completed his transfer down to Waco, former-Boise State head coach Chris Peterson claimed to have called Briles to inform the Baylor coach about the character of Ukwuachu. Peterson released a statement saying, “[Before the transfer] I initiated a call with coach Art Briles. In that conversation, I thoroughly apprised Coach Briles of the circumstances surrounding Sam’s disciplinary record and dismissal.” Briles denied that Peterson warned him about Ukwuachu, however, he did acknowledge contact with Peterson about the player. This is only another addition to the mounting evidence of Baylor and its football program’s imbecilic handling of a situation surrounding its student athletes.
Sark attack in Los Angeles! USC football coach Steve Sarkisian took advantage of what was apparently an open bar at a university booster function in pulchritudinous fashion. A seriously sloshed Sark slung profanities towards Pac-12 powers Arizona State and Oregon while a perplexed crowd peered on. Last week we published a fake quote from harbinger of doom Melvin Upton Jr. This week we end “The Good, The Bad, The Ugly” with this very real quote and brand new life motto given to us by one Stephen Ambrose Sarkisian, “Get ready to fight f***ing on, baby!”
