Rydell Brooks kicked out of school

Men's basketball
The university kicked Rydell Brooks off campus, following the walk-on's serious skirmish with police officers last month.
Brooks' attorney said the former Niagara guard could be reinstated to school if acquitted in court. Regardless, it's safe to say Keith Dambrot and Co. won't be asking him to return to the basketball court.
Brooks is in Summit County Jail, awaiting a trial on charges of attempted murder, felonious assault and carrying a concealed weapon.
Another week, another softball update.
This time, my team played against a team that included Kent State quarterback Julian Edelman.
Appropriately, Edelman played left field, where he could take advantage of his laser arm. On a couple occasions, he crashed into the wall, showing off his other top attribute: toughness.
Edelman is one of 10 Kent State players on Phil Steele's preseason All-MAC team.
Our team swept Edelman's, in case you were wondering.
