Rice merely a mortal on course

Golf: Hall of Fame football receiver Jerry Rice set a record Thursday at the BMW Charity Pro-Am in Spartanburg, S.C., that wasn’t one he wanted.

Rice shot a 92, the highest score since this Nationwide Tour event began in South Carolina’s Upstate in 1992.

The former San Francisco 49er put three shots into the water on the par-4 second hole for a 10. Things never improved from there. His 20-over finish was two shots worse than the 90 put up by Shawn McCaughley in 2006 at The Cliffs Valley Course.

Gregorak charged; done at UNLV

Football: UNLV assistant football coach Ty Gregorak was charged Thursday in Boulder, Colo., with two counts of trespass, one count of theft and one count of prohibited use of a weapon after an arrest earlier this month.

A graduate of West Valley High School in Spokane and a former standout player at Colorado, Gregorak has been given the option of resigning or letting his contract expire June 30 without renewal by UNLV athletic director Jim Livengood.

Gregorak is accused of stealing a .45-caliber gun and a wallet from the car of Joseph Benedetto, a bouncer at a Boulder strip club, after Benedetto refused him entry into the club on May 1 because Gregorak was too intoxicated, according to police.

Gregorak was an assistant at the University of Montana before joining head coach Bobby Hauck at UNLV in December.
