The Voice Usa 2013 Live Recap: Best Of The Blind Auditions (video)

USA Science & Engineering Festival to Host U.S. News STEM Solutions National Conference

[+] Enlarge AP/Richard Shotwell/Invision USA Boxing sent an open letter to Mike Tyson, asking him to wait until after the 2016 Rio Games to sign the country’s top amateur fighters. But if Tyson wants to move past pigeon-racing reality shows on Animal Plant or another academy award-winning guest appearance in “The Hangover IV: A New Hope” and make his move to be the next Don King, who are we — or USA Boxing — to complain? Tyson has done so well with his life since he left the sport (as long as he does not revert to the misbehavior he exhibited after longtime trainer Cus D’Amato died, then all is good). But this isn’t about Tyson or his response to Butler’s letter in the New York Post claiming the organization never reached out to him directly and is “taking advantage of my name and company for publicity.” This is about USA Boxing. When did USA Boxing become so sanctimonious? So righteous and indignant? Boxing promoters have perpetually gone after amateur boxers in an attempt to get them to skip the Olympic route. For years, promoters have used everything from Muhammad Ali throwing his gold medal into the Ohio River to the image of Roy Jones Jr. standing next to a ref as he lifted the arm of Park Si-Hun in the Seoul Olympics (considered by many as one of the most corrupt moments in Olympic history) as examples of the unimportance of the Olympics in the arc of one’s career. More recently, promoters simply need to run off the names of top boxers who didn’t need an Olympic medal to succeed as a pro — Manny Pacquiao, Miguel Cotto, Juan Manuel Marquez, Adrien Broner, Timothy Bradley — to prove that participating in the Olympics is as useful as an iPhone 3GS. After Athens 2004, USA Boxing had been able to say to every American who has thought about joining them: “Look at Andre Ward’s career, and we’ll show you how Ward benefited from being in the Olympics.” But when a country goes through an entire Olympics as the United States did at London 2012 and returns without a single medal, the sell gets difficult. Tyson is doing nothing different from any other promoter in the game since boxing became a free enterprise for promotion and hype. Boxing promoters from Butch Lewis to Bob Arum have always “poached” boxers they feel can make them money sooner rather than later. It’s their way of building a relationship with a boxer before anyone else has the chance. That’s kinda always been part of the (shady) business side of boxing.

Charlotte will join the league in football in 2015. Old Dominion, which started football in 2009, joins the league in that sport in 2014. The exit door is swinging, as well, with Memphis having left after the 2012-13 season and Tulane, Tulsa and East Carolina departing in 2014. With Western Kentucky coming in next season, the leagues membership will be trimmed to 14 schools. Its going to take a lot of getting used to, said Charlotte mens basketball coach Alan Major. There are guys who have been in the league who are in the same boat as new coaches coming in. There are a bunch of new faces theyre not used to seeing. So theres a lot of anticipation. Its a lot of guys sizing up something and wondering, What are we getting into? Conference USA was formed in 1995 and soon became one of the countrys top mens basketball conferences. Charlotte held its own with Cincinnati, Memphis and Marquette, winning two league tournament titles, one regular-season championship and playing in the NCAA tournament seven times. But when the league began to emphasize football in 2006, the 49ers got the boot. They moved to the Atlantic 10 until deciding to start a football program this season, with the intention of some day moving from the NCAAs Football Championship Subdivision to the Football Bowl Subdivision. Attracted by Charlottes market size and a familiarity with the school, C-USA came calling again.
