Outsports: Look at the media circus Michael Sam created at the NFL Veteran Combine
Sam's dancing partner said she was worried about rehearsal time because of how much time he spent focusing on the veterans combine.— David Morrison (@DavidCMorrison) March 24, 2015
The judges seemed to like Sam's foxtrot. One judge says he's still sticking his posterior out too much.— David Morrison (@DavidCMorrison) March 24, 2015
Sam gets all 7s for a 28, which is a step up from his 26 last week.— David Morrison (@DavidCMorrison) March 24, 2015

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: we live in a funny world.
The new guy
Rhoades approached Penders after the 2010 season — the Cougars won the Conference USA tournament and lost to Maryland in the first round of the NCAAs — and posed a simple question.
"He said, ‘Well, Tom, what do you want to do?’" Penders said. "I said, ‘I don’t know if this is possible, but what I’d love to do is retire and get paid.’ "
Done deal. Rhoades agreed to pay Penders $500,000 for the final two years of his contract. Penders insisted he could have returned for the following season if he wanted.
In their one season working together, Penders said Rhoades followed through on multiple promises, got to know his family, his assistants and players and boosted staff morale by letting head coaches run department meetings.
Penders’ only regret?
"I wish our careers met somewhere (earlier)," he said, "because we really could have done special things together."

I'm not sure Mother Nature's going to allow these games to take place
MUTIGERS.COM: No. 23 Mizzou Closes Seven-Game Homestand with UAPB
BUT ... as a fun side note ... if Tuesday's game does take place, UAPB's projected starting pitcher is ... my second-cousin. No, really. So here's to hoping Mizzou wins, 0-(-1).
First NCAA trip in 3 years
This game was simply amazing
For example, it could emulate the ambience of a game day NHL arena by including the proper organ music. The problem, though, was that each team’s organist played different songs. ‘That’s not a problem, actually,’ explained Dieter Ruehle, the organist for the San Jose Sharks (and previously for the Los Angeles Kings), ‘I can do that.’ True to his word, Ruehle provided EA with organ music for every team; and he didn’t just provide all of their songs, but also noted which music was blasted during power plays, which tunes were used to celebrate goals, and all the other inside info needed to make each arena feel like home. Ruehle was so diligent about getting it right and capturing that home crowd essence, that during a recording session at EA’s sound studio he asked:
‘The woman who plays the organ for the Washington Capitals has arthritis; would you like me to play the songs how they are meant to be played, or the way that she plays them because of her condition?’
‘Definitely the way she plays it!’ Brook answered, after a laugh.
