Fly’s rumorama: Tiger Woods, Calvin Ayre, Jim Delany, Mike Slive, Indiana high school hoops, Keneche Udeze

GOLF: Online gaming company Bodogbrand.com doesn’t really care what Tiger Woods does off the course. Other sponsors may have run from the sex scandal following Woods since November, but Bodog wants the No. 1 golfer and is offering him a $100 million deal with a "no moral judgment" clause, according to a report in London’s Daily Mail. "Bodog Brand is not telling Tiger ‘all is forgiven.’ In BodogBrand’s eyes, there is nothing to forgive," says Bodog founder Calvin Ayre.

CFB: Press-Register columnist Paul Finebaum has a very impassioned and descriptive take on all the expansion talk in the Big Ten. Have a look: "Imagine for a moment you are Jim Delany. Once the baddest man in collegiate athletics, today you have been reduced to being Mike Slive’s personal piñata. … Delany’s Buckeyes were punked by Florida in the BCS title game, 41-14. A couple of months later, in 2007, the Gators beat the Buckeyes for the NCAA basketball title. A double shot of castor oil for Delany. It was also about this time that Delany lost his manhood to Slive and the SEC commissioner simply won’t give it back."

High School Basketball: Four former basketball players at Carmel High School in Carmel, Ind., are in big trouble. They face a total of 13 misdemeanor charges in connection with an apparent hazing incident. But no one’s telling exactly what they did.

NFL: Keneche Udeze, who had to retire from the NFL to fight leukemia, recently graduated from USC with a degree in sociology. And he has a message for students that’s relevant for the rest of us. "Life very seldom goes where you want it to go," Udeze told the USC graduates, according to the USC College of Letters, Arts & Sciences website. "But what are you going to do? Are you going to stand there and strike out when you have balls thrown at you? Or are you going to hit the ball and keep going?"
