Coach hears from mom after 'Hard Knocks' cursing

Jeff Fisher

Jeff Fisher, the Rams coach whose team is featured on this year's Hard Knocks on HBO, got called up and then called out by his mother after she heard him cursing on the show.

Fisher used some choice words as he talked about his frustration with a player who broke team rules.

His mother was watching and called him the next day.

"I got one of these, 'Jeffrey!' " Fisher said. "This is from Mom. So I said, 'Sorry, Mom. That's our world. I'll try to do better.' When I hear 'Jeffrey!' it's uh-oh, something went wrong."

Fisher cut Deon Long for bringing a woman into his room at training camp, despite Fisher's rule that there were to be no guests.

    No. 21 USF ran its record to 4-0 Thursday night with some payback against Temple, a 43-7 trouncing, no contest, as if anyone cares, at least judging by the paltry crowd at Raymond James Stadium. Where was everybody?

  5. Former Ray Tim Beckham's over being traded, or is he?

    The Heater

    BALTIMORE — As the Rays reunited Thursday with Tim Beckham for the first time since he was dealt July 31 to Baltimore, it became very clear that not everything in assessing the trade is as it appears.

    Tim Beckham, here in action Monday against the Red Sox, has hit .310, with 10 homers and 26 RBIs since going to the Orioles.
