Ohio State head football coach Jim Tressel has another punishment before sitting out the first five games of the upcoming season.

He’ll have to attend a five-day compliance seminar in June in Tampa, Florida as part of not revealing his knowledge of his players’ committing NCAA violations.

Ohio State has confirmed that Tressel would take part in the NCAA-sponsored event June 6-10 at a resort hotel on the waterfront.

There will be several topics at the compliance seminar, is “Division I Major Infractions.”

Tressel was notified in April 2010 via emails from a Buckeyes fan and former player that Ohio State players were trading signed jerseys and other memorabilia to a Columbus tattoo parlor owner for cash and reduced-price tattoos. Tressel failed to inform athletic director Gene Smith, President E. Gordon Gee or the university’s compliance department.

Tressel was originally suspended for two games but it was later stretched to the first five games of the 2011 season football season to match the punishment of his players, fined $250,000, required to make a public apology and receive a public reprimand and to attend an NCAA compliance seminar.

The New York Yankees, currently with injuries to their pitching staff, have added former Chicago Cubs pitcher Carlos Silva off the waiver wire.

The right-hander was signed to a minor-league contract.

The 31-year-old strikeout pitcher was released by the Cubs last month after he didn’t earn a spot on the 25-man roster. The Cubs are responsible for paying a portion of his $11.25 million salary.

Silva will quickly get into shape at the Yankees’ minor-league complex in Tampa, Florida.

Clemson University head coach Brad Brownell was excited Sunday when he found out that his team was in the NCAA Tournament. He was equally as excited when he found out that the Tigers would be playing in Dayton, Ohio.

Brownell, for four years previous to coaching at Clemson, was the head coach of the Wright State University Raiders who are located 15 miles to the north in the Dayton suburb of Fairborn. He had always wanted to play an annual game against the Dayton Flyers, but could never get a deal done.

Jerai Grant

He did get a win on the Flyers’ home court, UD Arena  Tuesday night as the Clemson Tigers won an NCAA Tournament game for the first time in 14 years, 70-52 over UAB.

Jerai Grant scored a career-best 22 points and the Tigers got off to a quick-start with a double-figure lead and never let up in beating Alabama-Birmingham, the regular-season champions of Conference USA.

Grant canned 10 of 15 shots from the field and also grabbed seven rebounds.

Jamarr Sanders had 19 points and Dexter Fields 12 for UAB.

The Tigers (22-11) will now turn their attention to fifth-seeded West Virginia (20-11) on Thursday afternoon in Tampa, Florida.

Urban Meyer almost resigned from Florida earlier this year but that lasted just one day and was for health reasons.

This time he is resigning because he wants to be a better husband and father. He has two daughters playing Division I volleyball and wants to see them.

The 46-year-old Toledo, Ohio native leaves coaching with an impressive resume’. He has a 103-23 record, a winning percentage of .817, 64-15 at Florida, a 6-1 Bowl record and two national championships. He rebuilt the football programs at Bowling Green State University in Ohio (17-6 record) and at the University of Utah (22-2 record).

Meyer is walking away from about $20 million in guaranteed salary. But Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley did agree to pay Meyer a $1 million retention bonus the coach would’ve received if he were employed on January 31, 2011.

The Florida Gators struggled during the 2010 season and were near the bottom of the Southeastern Conference in every offensive category and finished at 7-5. Florida will play in the Outback Bowl in Tampa, Florida on January 1, 2011 against the Penn State Nittany Lions who were likewise, 7-5.
