The 6’7, 330-pound Geathers will contend for a backup role on the Cleveland defensive line. The 22-year-old Geathers is the brother of Bengals defensive end Robert Geathers. Clifton’s father, Robert Sr., was a third-round pick of the Buffalo Bills in 1981. Clifton’s uncle, Jumpy, played defensive tackle for four teams from 1984-1996.

compiled by the megasportsnews.com staff

With all of the nation’s NCAA Division I colleges and universities on summer vacations, the College World Series moves into it’s championship round.

The University of California at Los Angeles, known to most as simply UCLA, has won national championships in 17 sports. But they have none in baseball, as of yet.

The Bruins will begin quest of that first baseball title in Omaha, Nebraska against South Carolina, in the best-of-three College World Series final starting tonight.

UCLA has miraculously made the final round after finishing 2009 at 27-29.

South Carolina reached the College World Series championship game in 1975, 1977 and 2002, but lost each time. The Gamecocks survived four elimination games to make it to the final. They beat Clemson two games in a row.

SATURDAY

The Clippers rolled into Carolina Saturday to take on the Charlotte Knights and a former teammate sent them down to defeat, but not before Columbus played their longest game of the season. A former member of the Indians organization, Luis Rodriguez’ solo walk-off homer in the bottom of the 12th inning gave the Knights a 3-2 victory in the series opener.

SUNDAY

On a hot Sunday afternoon in South Carolina, Charlotte pitcher Dan Hudson served up scorching fastballs and blistering breaking pitches and got his revenge as the Knights beat Columbus 5-0.

Hudson gave up nine runs in just one inning at Huntington Park on April 24th, his worst start as a professional, but this time he took his frustrations out on Columbus in a dominating fashion. He basically blew right through their lineup with 8 innings of shutout ball, striking out a season-high 11 batters, walked one and allowed 3 singles for hits.

MONDAY

In a game delayed twice by rain at Knights Stadium Monday night, the Clippers persevered for a 9-2 victory over the Charlotte Knights to ensure at least a .500 road trip.

Yohan Pino started for the Clippers and after Brent Lillibridge’s homer; he allowed no more hits over 4 innings of work before the rains came. Frank Herrmann took the mound when play resumed and threw 2.2 scoreless innings to earn the win before handing the ball to Joe Smith who threw 1.1 shutout frames. Josh Judy finished the game for Columbus.

Clemson University calls, Brownell leaves Wright State for another challenge

compiled from staff and wire reports

Brad Brownell (megasportsnews.com)

Former Wright State University head coach Brad Brownell has a new address for next season. It is Littlejohn Coliseum, home of the Clemson University Tigers of the Atlantic Coast Conference.

The 41-year-old Brownell showed up at the South Carolina school on Tuesday to meet his players, visit with school administrators and take hold of a program that has gone to the past three NCAA tournaments.

He replaced Oliver Purnell, who left after seven successful years to rebuild DePaul.  When Brownell heard that stunning news, he knew that he was a good fit for the Tigers.

But there were other coaches who were on a short list of athletic director Terry Don Phillips. Those included former Boston College coach Al Skinner, Wofford Coach Mike Young, current Tigers interim coach Ron Bradley and Mississippi State coach Rick Stansbury. But Phillips offered the job to Brownell on Monday with a phone call and he accepted.

It’s the second straight time that Phillips has gone to a Ohio for his basketball coach, selecting Oliver Purnell from Dayton after the 2003 season.

Brownell went 84-45 in four years at Wright State, leading the program to 20 + wins every year and 2nd place finishes and in 2007, the Horizon League championship and the NCAA tournament.

Brownell also coached at UNC Wilmington, leading the Seahawks to the NCAA’s in 2003 and 2006. That was where, the Indiana native learned about ACC basketball and the passion it stirred in the region.
