Penn State's football program motto was "success with honor," but after the Sandusky scandal questions surround the football program. Will they be able to recruit players? Will fans and alumni support the team?

The U.S. Men's Olympic Basketball team is playing an exhibition game tonight against the Dominican Republic. Despite the light competition tonight, Kobe Bryant thinks the 2012 team could be better than the 1992 Dream Team, which had players like Magic Johnson, Larry Bird and Michael Jordan.

And in baseball, players are coming back from the mid-season All Star break. The Dodgers once owned the best record in baseball for months, but have lost fifteen of their last twenty games. Matt Kemp, star outfielder, is coming back after being injured, but rumors are swirling they could acquire more help via trade.
