Big 12 Hires Stanford AD Bowlsby as Commissioner

Sports

May 4th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

LAS COLINAS, Texas (AP) — The Big 12 Conference has made it official, announcing the hiring of Stanford athletic director Bob Bowlsby as its new commissioner. The North Texas-based league announced the hire on Thursday, a few hours after Bowlsby broke the news to his staff and coaches at Stanford. He will take over from interim Commissioner Chuck Neinas on June 15th. The 60-year-old Bowlsby spent the past six years at Stanford, helping it rebuild its football program into a national power. He was hired away from Iowa in 2006, following 15 years running the Hawkeyes’ athletic department. Bowlsby will now take over a BCS conference that seems to have found some stability after losing four schools over the past two years. The league will head into this fall with 10 members, including new additions TCU and West Virginia.

Beltran Powers Cardinals to 12-3 Rout of Pirates

Sports

May 3rd, 2012 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Carlos Beltran drove in a career-best seven runs with a pair of three-run home runs and RBI single in the first three innings, leading the way as the St. Louis Cardinals punished A.J. Burnett and the Pittsburgh Pirates 12-3 on Tuesday night. Rookie Lance Lynn (5-0) joined Steve Shields as the major leagues’ only five-game winners, allowing three hits and two runs in 6 2-3 innings with six strikeouts to beat the Pirates for the second time in three starts. Lynn has a 1.61 ERA as the replacement starter for Chris Carpenter, sidelined indefinitely with nerve issues in his right shoulder. Burnett (1-2) entered with a 1.38 ERA but trailed 4-0 after six pitches. The right-hander surrendered 12 runs on 12 hits in 2 2/3 innings.

Pittsburgh Pirates catcher Rod Barajas and manager Clint Hurdle were ejected in the second inning of their game against the St. Louis Cardinals, Wednesday night. Barajas threw his mask after getting tossed by home plate umpire Angel Campos, apparently for arguing after a pitch from A.J. Burnett called a ball. The pitch came with none out, two on and the Pirates down 5-1. Hurdle apparently was tossed for protecting his player. It was the sixth ejection with the Pirates for Hurdle, in his second season with the team. Michael McKenry replaced Barajas at catcher for Pittsburgh, and the Cardinals scored two more runs for a 7-1 cushion.

AP Source: Stanford AD Bowlsby Offered Big 12 Job

Sports

May 3rd, 2012 by Ric Hanson

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A person with knowledge of the search says Stanford athletic director Bob Bowlsby has been offered the Big 12 commissioner job to replace the ousted Dan Beebe. The person confirmed Wednesday night that Bowlsby had received the offer after ESPN first reported the news. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because details of the offer weren’t made public. Bowlsby is a nationally respected college administrator in his sixth full season at Stanford. He was hired away from Iowa in 2006, following 15 years running the Hawkeyes’ athletic department. Stanford’s rigorous academic standards present unique circumstances, and Bowlsby has shined and helped oversee the transformation of the football program back into a national power. Beebe was fired in September 2011 and replaced on an interim basis by Chuck Neinas.
