A new book by Tiger Woods' former swing coach claims the golfer was obsessed with becoming a Navy SEAL.

Hank Haney says Woods undertook a training program similar to that of a SEAL candidate.

Sources say his career has been going down the tubes ever since.


Following Utah's loss at Oregon State, last week, basketball coach Larry Krystkowiak decided to lighten things up by taking the Utes bowling.

They responded by losing by a record 46 points to Oregon the next day.

Apparently there was some confusion when Krystko overheard Kyle Whittingham say the best way to keep your job is to go bowling every year.
