Notre Dame duo

suspended for opener

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Notre Dame suspended quarterback Tommy Rees and linebacker Carlo Calabrese for the Sept. 1 season opener against Navy in Ireland on Tuesday, nearly two months after they were arrested following an off-campus party and charged with resisting arrest.

Coach Brian Kelly said his players “understand that it’s a privilege” to be at Notre Dame and Rees and Calabrese, both upperclassmen, failed to live up to their responsibilities.

ESPN2 to televise

OSU-Gonzaga Dec. 31

STILLWATER (AP) — Oklahoma State will host Gonzaga in a Dec. 31 basketball game that will be televised on ESPN2. Tipoff is at 7 p.m.

Officials said Tuesday the timing is ideal because none of the football bowl games with ties to the Big 12 Conference will be played Dec. 30 through Jan. 2. There are three bowl games with Big 12 ties on Dec. 29 and the Fiesta Bowl on Jan. 3.

This will be the third-consecutive season and the fifth time in the past eight years that Oklahoma State has played on Dec. 31.

Jones speaks with

Bryant about arrest

OXNARD, Calif. (AP) — Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has finally talked with Dez Bryant about the receiver’s recent arrest.

After the Cowboys wrapped up their second day of training camp practices Tuesday, Jones said he has talked extensively with Bryant. Jones called it a great visit, but didn’t elaborate on details of the conversation.  

During a camp-opening news conference two days earlier, Jones said he hadn’t talked to Bryant since the former first-round pick’s July 16 arrest for allegedly assaulting his mother. Jones said then he didn’t know why he hadn’t talked to Bryant.

On Tuesday, Jones said he had been too mad and didn’t want to talk to Bryant emotionally.

Bryant hasn’t been available for interviews because of pending legal issues, and still the possibility of NFL or team discipline.
