Georgia State’s first win is a shutout on the road


Penny Hart had a career-high 11 receptions for 141 yards and a touchdown to help lead Georgia State to a 28-0 win over host Charlotte on Saturday night.

Glenn Smith's 3-yard touchdown run put the Panthers up 7-0 at the end of a 10-play, 66-yard drive. Later, Conner Manning threw a 32-yard touchdown pass to Hart to make it 14-0. It was the sixth time that Hart, a redshirt sophomore, has gone over 100 yards receiving.

Georgia State (1-2) sealed the game early in the fourth when Charlotte's Tommy Doctor blocked Brandon Wright's 25-yard field goal attempt. After the block, a 49er touched the ball making it live, and Shamarious Gilmore pounced on it in the end zone for a 21-0 advantage.

Hasaan Klugh passed for 179 yards and threw two interceptions - both to Bryan Williams - for Charlotte (0-4).

The hulking figure lay on its side in the long grass, partially mummified by a tarp and some bubble wrap. Brian Hanlon recognized it as soon as he saw the face. “There’s Shaq!” he cried. Indeed, there was Shaquille O’Neal, even larger than life, frozen in mid-dunk. Hanlon rapped on the copper-toned torso. It was hollow as a...

All it took was one week back on the bag to remind Jim "Bones" Mackay what he always loved about being a caddie. It just wasn't enough for this to be the ultimate mic drop.  Mackay traded in his TV microphone at the Sony Open for the 40-pound bag belonging to Justin Thomas.  It was his first time caddying since he split with Phil...

The national training center for the U.S. women’s gymnastics team is a hard place to reach. It’s about 60 miles north of Houston, inside Sam Houston National Forest, on a 2,000-acre ranch owned by Bela and Martha Karolyi, the coaching couple who defected from Romania and became the guiding force of USA Gymnastics. On my way down the dirt...
