• Ex-Cowboy Joseph Randle jailed after casino altercation

    Today at 12:48 PM

    Running back Joseph Randle, who was released by the Dallas Cowboys earlier this month, was jailed early Wednesday after an altercation at a Kansas casino. Randle was asked to leave the Kansas Star Casino in Mulvane late Tuesday after causing some unspecified trouble on the casino floor, according to Fred Waller, an enforcement agent with the Kansas Racing and Gaming Commission. Randle left but then returned. Randle started arguing with security officers, and a scuffle ensued, Waller said. Several agents had to restrain him, and he was taken to the county jail. He was booked on suspicion of criminal threat, assault of a law enforcement officer, battery, disorderly conduct, criminal trespass, disorderly conduct and interference with a law enforcement officer. According to KSN.com, Randle was released just before noon Wednesday. Randle, who tallied more than 3,000-yards rushing and 40 touchdowns over three seasons at Oklahoma State (2010-12), was arrested twice over the past year: in October 2014, at a Frisco, Texas mall for shoplifting and again in February for marijuana possession in Wichita, Kan., after police were called to a domestic disturbance with a weapon concerning an incident with Randle and the mother of his son. The Dallas Cowboys released Randle earlier this month, days after excusing him to deal with what the team called a "personal issue." In five games with the Cowboys this season, Randle rushed for 315 yards and four touchdowns on 76 carries.

Scott Atran, co-founder of the Center for the Resolution of Intractable Conflict at Oxford University, said research has found that "radicalization rarely occurs in mosques" and very, very rarely through anonymous recruiters and strangers. He said some Islamic State recruits come from Christian families "and they happen to be the fiercest of all the fighters we find."

  • Trip to Colorado will provide a gauge for Air Force basketball

    Updated: 15 hr ago

    It seems that every year, a game against Colorado during the week of Thanksgiving provides the Air Force basketball team with a sort of crystal ball into the rest of the season. At least that's how it's been in four years under coach Dave Pilipovich. Three years ago, Air Force hung tight on the road until the final minutes in what turned into a 15-point loss against a Buffaloes team that was ranked No. 23. The Falcons then turned in their best season over the past eight years, though it turned sour at the very end with seven losses in the last 10 games. The next year, Air Force got blown out 81-47 in Clune Arena. The season, for the most part, followed that script and the Falcons went 12-18.
