Nike and Oakley Pull Endorsments as the Oscar Pistorius Story Continues to Unfold

on February 21 2013 11:33 AM

One week after South African Olympic hero, Oscar Pistorius, was arrested and charged with murdering his girlfriend in his home, more twists and details come out that add more drama to an already scrutinized case.

Pistorius became the first double-amputee track star to compete at the Olympics when he ran in last year's London Games. He is being accused of premeditated murder in the death of his supermodel girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp. Pistorius claims he entered his home and mistook Steenkamp for an intruder and that the shooting was purely accidental and unintentional. 

Pistorius is not the only one coming under scrutiny in this now internationally renowned murder case.

Add the South African legal process to the list.

 

After it was revealed that the initial investigator, Hilton Botha, was facing attempting murder charges, South Africa's police head appointed a new lead on the case in detective Vinesh Moonoo.

BCS Championship Game Preview And Where To Watch Online Live Stream: No. 1 Notre Dame Fighting Irish vs. No. 2 Alabama Crimson Tide

When the final horn sounded to signal the end of last year’s BCS title game, dozens of schools began setting their sights on raising the crystal ball after the 2012 season.

Locking up recruits for signing day, spring practices, off season workouts, summer programs and a grueling fall 2-a-day schedule all happen for one reason, to try and put together a team to earn the right to play for a national championship.

A three month season of ups and downs eliminates all but two teams who have earned the right to play for an opportunity to call themselves the champion.

That’s where we are.

Chip Kelly Returning To Oregon After Talks With NFL Teams

Chip Kelly Returning To Oregon After Talks With NFL Teams

Reports are surfacing that Chip Kelly has spurned the NFL to stay at Oregon.

There are some “experts” in the football world who are rumbling that Kelly needs to fish or cut bait, so to speak. These experts say that he shouldn’t flirt with the NFL so much if he isn’t going to go. That he will hurt the Oregon program in recruiting, providing ammunition for opposing coaches to use against him with prospects. That it puts the program in flux, not knowing from year to year whether or not their head coach will stay or leave.

Ask any coach in major college football or NFL, and they will tell you that you only have leverage so many times in your career and you better use it when you have it. (Look no further than Les Miles “flirting” with Arkansas. He was NEVER going to Arkansas, but he got himself and his staff hearty raises and extra years on their contracts. Think he would have gotten all that had he waited until after the Chic-Fil-A Bowl loss to Clemson?)

In an age where a coach’s job security is as secure as whether or not they won their last game, coaches are moving and changing jobs at a pace that would give Jeff Gordon motion sickness.
