DePaul Blue Demons head coach Oliver Purnell has completed his coaching staff, bringing in three assistants who worked with him at Clemson and retained three other coaches from Jerry Wainwright’s staff.

Purnell shocked everybody in college basketball when he suddenly left Clemson University, one of the top programs in the ACC, to go to DePaul which has been a horrible program ever since Dave Leitao left to go to Virginia.

Purnell has been known to rebuild programs. He has succeeded at Radford, Old Dominion, Dayton and Clemson. He played at Old Dominion University under a very good coach in Paul Webb who won over 500 games.

Ron Bradley is the associate head coach, Billy Garrett and Kevin Nickelberry were hired as assistants. Josh Postorino who played for Purnell at Dayton, will be the director of basketball operations. Mac Calloway will be the strength and conditioning coach.

David Booth, Andy Farrell and Brandon Bailey will be retained from Wainwright’s staff.

ILLINOIS AGAINST NORTHWESTERN. College Football is back at Wrigley Field.

The Northwestern Wildcats and Illinois Fighting Illini will play a Big Ten game at the storied baseball park on November 20. The Chicago Cubs and Northwestern have scheduled a news conference for Friday to announce the details.

Wrigley Field, built in 1914 and second-oldest baseball park to Fenway Park in Boston, has hosted plenty of football, but not in a while.

Wrigley was home to the Chicago Bears from 1921-1970. On New Year’s Day 2009, it was also the site of the NHL’s Winter Classic between the Detroit Red Wings and Chicago Blackhawks.

The Meineke Bowl will be played on New Year’s Eve for the second time.

Bowl management announced on Thursday that the 2010 game will be scheduled on December 31 at Bank of America Stadium. Kickoff will be noon and it will be televised by ESPN.

The date for the game was set once the 2010 NFL schedule was released and had the Carolina Panthers on the road for the last weekend of the season, opening the New Year’s Eve date at the Panthers stadium.

The Charlotte Bowl was also played on December 31, 2005, when North Carolina State beat South Florida 14-0.

The 2010 game again will match teams from the Atlantic Coast Conference and Big East.

Big Ben gets a Big Ban of 6 games by Commissioner Goodell

compiled from staff and wire reports

Ben Roethlisberger will have plenty of time to get his situation in order before his 2010 season official begins in late October.

The two-time Super Bowl winning QB was suspended by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on Wednesday for six games without pay for violating the league’s personal conduct policy. A week after Big Ben avoided sexual assault charges in Georgia, Goodell also ordered the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback to undergo a “comprehensive behavioral evaluation by professionals.”

Goodell said the league’s conduct policy gave him the right to impose discipline regardless of whether Roethlisberger broke the law or not. Furthermore, the commissioner stated that the team offseason activities were off-limits to the quarterback until he completes the evaluation and is cleared by the league to rejoin the Steelers. The ban could be shortened to four games for good behavior.

The NFL brought down the punishment a week after prosecutors decided not to charge Big Ben in a case involving a 20-year-old college student who accused him of sexually assaulting her in a Milledgeville, Ga., nightclub in March.

By having to sit out  all six games, it would cost Roethlisberger an estimated $2.8 million of  his $102 million total deal. And trade rumors immediately have swirled: Will he be traded during the draft, after the draft or during the summer months prior to training camp? It has been reported that the Steelers would want a Top 10 draft pick if a trade was initiated.

Roethlisberger is the first player suspended by Roger Goodell under the conduct policy who hasn’t been arrested or charged with a crime.

Goodell has aggressively dealt with players who violated the personal conduct  policy throughout his 3 1/2 years as commissioner. All told, 16 players have been suspended under the conduct policy by Goodell.

Dodgers blow out Reds 14-6

compiled by staff and wire reports

Rafael Furcal led the way as Los Angeles pounded the Reds all over Great American Ball Park.

The leadoff hitter drove in four runs with a  single, double and triple to highlight another hitting-clinic performance by the major’s best-hitting lineup Wednesday night in leading the Dodgers to a 14-6 win over Cincinnati. LA scored in all but one inning, a dominating performance from the top of the lineup to the bottom.

The Dodgers have a 23-5 record against the reds since 2006, their best record against any team in that span, according to STATS LLC.

Hiroki Kuroda (2-0) was the winner, Aaron Harang ( 0-3) was the loser.

The Dodgers came into the game with a .302 batting average that led the majors and five players hitting .320 or better. They piled up 18 hits and achieved their season high in runs.

Andre Ethier had a solo homer among his  three hits; Matt Kemp extended his hitting streak to 10 games with his seventh homer of the season and James Loney broke the game open with a bases-loaded single that made it 9-4 in the sixth inning.
