Family reports Ohio State football player missing
2014-11-28

Kosta Karageorge, a senior defensive tackle from Columbus, was last seen at his apartment around 2 a.m. Wednesday, his sister, Sophia Karageorge told The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1zZXTgq). She said her 22-year-old brother apparently was upset, and roommates said he went for a walk, dressed in black from his hat to his boots.

Police said a missing-persons report was filed on the bearded, 6-foot-5, 285-pound former wrestler.

Team spokesman Jerry Emig confirmed that Karageorge missed practice Wednesday and Thursday.

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer described Karageorge as a hard worker and an important player in practice.

''Our thoughts continue to be with the family of Kosta Karageorge, and we pray that he is safe and that he is found soon,'' Meyer said in a Friday statement.

Karageorge, a former Buckeyes wrestler, joined the football team as a walk-on this season. He has played in one game and is among two dozen seniors slated to be recognized at their final home game Saturday against rival Michigan.

Karageorge's sister said he left without his wallet or his motorcycle. He has a history of concussions, including one a month ago, and might have become disoriented, she said.

''We're very concerned that he's not himself and that he maybe doesn't know what's going on,'' she told the newspaper. She said after each concussion, he has followed trainers' instructions and received proper care, but ''his repercussions from (concussions) have been long-term or delayed.''

The team's physician, Dr. Jim Borchers, said Friday that he could not comment on the medical care of student athletes.

But, Boarches said, ''We are confident in our medical procedures and policies to return athletes to participation following injury or illness.''
The Dispatch reports that about 100 people gathered Friday afternoon in Columbus to post fliers with the player's photo and description.

CFL: CFL underdog winners of Week 1 square off (10:00 PM ET, TSN)
2010-07-09

Three of the opening weekend CFL games resulted in underdogs winning outright. Two of them, Saskatchewan and British Columbia square off in an intriguing Week 2 contest Saturday night. Of course, one of the teams has to move to the role of favorite for this game, and the host Lions do so, laying 2-points with a total of 52.5 according to Sportsbook.com. Let’s take a closer look at the game, which happens to be the FREE FoxSheet of the Week.

Saskatchewan comes off a season opening win over defending champ Montreal, a 54-51 double-overtime decision which may wind up going down as the game of the year when the season’s all said and done in November. In that game, Roughriders’ QB Darian Durant threw for 478 yards, leading an offensive outburst that produced 657 yards in all. Not bad for a team that went into the game as a 3.5-point home dog.

British Columbia’s opening win was more about old fashioned football, defense and the ground game, as the Lions knocked off Edmonton, 25-10, on the road. Running back Jamal Robertson led the charge, carrying the ball 11 times for 168 yards with a touchdown. B.C. was also a 3-1/2 point dog in Week 1. Perhaps most important to B.C.’s opening week effort was the solid performance put in by new quarterback Casey Printers, who threw for 218 yards on 20 for 34 passing.

In looking at some of the key bullet points from this report, you’ll find several key bits of info, all seeming to side with the visiting Roughriders.

First, take a look at this system indicating to fade home favorites off an early season divisional win:

• Play Against - Home favorites (BRITISH COLUMBIA) - off a win over a division rival, in the first half of the season. (24-4 over the last 5 seasons.) (85.7%, +19.6 units. Rating = 3*)

The StatFox Game Estimator and Power Line both indicate that Saskatchewan should be about a 4-point road favorite here. The simulation calls for a 29-25 win on average. It is a rare but good sign when the two models agree exactly on the expected margin of win.

From a trend perspective, Saskatchewan has been good of the road versus division foes and in early season games:

• SASKATCHEWAN is 44-27 ATS (+14.3 Units) in road games versus division opponents since 1996. The average score was SASKATCHEWAN 22.6, OPPONENT 26.9 - (Rating = 0*)

• SASKATCHEWAN is 39-18 ATS (+19.2 Units) in July games since 1996. The average score was SASKATCHEWAN 27.1, OPPONENT 26.5 - (Rating = 1*)

It sure appears from all intents and purposes that oddsmakers at Sportsbook.com may have this one wrong on the side. As far as the total is concerned, note that Saskatchewan is on a 9-1 under run in road divisional games, and the last five games between these teams in B.C. have gone UNDER the total.

Kickoff is set for 10:00 PM ET on Saturday night on TSN.
