The Indianapolis Colts are remaining tightlipped about the NFL report implicating Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in DeflateGate.

The start of the Colts‘ three-day minicamp for its draft picks and undrafted free agents was coach Chuck Pagano‘s first meeting with reporters since the release of the NFL‘s findings that the Patriots deliberately deflated footballs before crushing the Colts in the AFC championship game.

Pagano sidestepped questions about the report Friday, saying only that the team is, in his words, "ready to move on."

A Purdue freshman is back on campus after claiming two national titles in diving.

Steele Johnson came in first in the ten-meter platform and one-meter springboard events at the NCAA Championships in Iowa City last week.

He is the first men’s diver to win NCAA titles in both springboard & platform in the same year since Purdue alumnus David Boudia in 2009.

Johnson says it’s just a step on the way to his bigger, international goals.

Cincinnati's Octavius Ellis was in tears when he left the court with 16 minutes left to play in his team's opening-round game with Purdue Thursday night.

The Bearcats star center had just been assessed a flagrant-2 foul and been ejected for throwing an elbow to the jaw of Purdue center A.J. Hammons. He clearly thought he might have cost his team a chance to win.

But though Ellis had injured his team's odds, it was a Purdue team that struggled all year to finish games that couldn't deliver a knockout punch.

University of Cincinnati players say they hope to speed up the tempo of Thursday’s NCAA tournament game with Purdue when the Bearcats are on offense and slow it down when Purdue has the ball.

Cincinnati allows an average of just 55 points per game this season, good for sixth-best in Division I. Senior forward Jermaine Sanders says he thinks if his team can run, they have the edge.

After learning they’d received a number nine seed in the NCAA basketball tournament, members of the Purdue men’s basketball team were variously relieved and concerned about their past struggles.

Forward Rapheal Davis said he was looking forward to watching film of the Boilermakers' opening round opponent, Cincinnati, but noted that most every pundit had written the team off in the preseason and as recently as a couple months ago.
