Bynum in Sixers Gear, Hamels, and Penn State in More Danger

Andrew Bynum showed up in Philadelphia wearing his state-issued Sixers sweatpants. Still no word on his party – er, press conference – but we’ll have a date and time just as soon as the Sixers announce it. It's tomorrow at the Constitution Center at 12:30. Doors open at 9:30.

Mega millionaire Cole Hamels was dominant in the Phillies’ 4-0 win last night: 9 IP, 0 ER, 7 H, 5 K, 1 BB. He threw 113 pitches, 85 for strikes. He's now up to 22 straight scoreless innings. It’s a shame, because last year something like this would be very exciting. Now it’s just kind of like watching an injured bird summon the courage to fly from smoking tread marks to a nearby nest: cute, but meaningless– he’s still dead. [video here

Finally, the accrediting organization that puts their stamp of approval on institutions of higher learning says Penn State’s accreditation is in jeopardy: [CBS]

The Middle States Commission on Higher Education, which accredits universities in the Mid-Atlantic region, cited information in the school's internal investigation led by former FBI director Louis Freeh and the severe penalties imposed by the NCAA over the school's handling of molestation allegations against the former assistant football coach, who was convicted in June of 45 child sexual abuse counts.

In an Aug. 8 notice, the commission said that Penn State remains accredited while "on warning" but it wants a monitoring report submitted by the end of next month detailing steps taken to ensure full compliance with governmental requirements, that the university's mission is being carried out, that the commission will be fully informed and that Penn State is complying with standards on leadership and governance as well as integrity.

 

That would be, like, really bad.

  1. Believe they said his press conference will be at the constitution center on wednesday at 12:15, although the doors open to fans at 9:30.

  2. It’s like really bad if it happens – except if you read the whole article from which you ripped this from, you’d see that this likely won’t happen.

  3. Scott Paterno must remain on the Atkins diet for a full year in order for the school to remain accredited.

  4. “Mega millionaire Cole Hamels was dominant in the Phillies’ 4-0 win last night: 9 IP, 0 ER, 7 H, 5 K, 1 BB. He threw 113 pitches, 85 for strikes. He’s now up to 22 straight scoreless innings.
