Ohio State Athletic Director Andy Geiger and Coach Jim Tressel defended the program Tuesday against charges that players were paid by boosters and coddled academically. Geiger had harsh words for former tailback Maurice Clarett and ESPN, which he said has led an attack against the program by providing a forum for Clarett's allegations.

For the first time since 2002, a U.S. official will work the World Cup this summer. Mark Geiger, a 39-year-old high school math teacher from Beachwood, N.J., was one of 25 referees selected by FIFA to officiate the tournament. Geiger, who worked the 2012 Olympics, has refereed Major League Soccer matches since 2004 and handled the final of the 2011 U-20 World Cup. He was named MLS Referee of the Year in 2011. Geiger will be joined by his regular assistants, American Sean Hurd and Canadian Joe Fletcher.

As tempting as it might be, you can't actually buy anything at the Herman Miller showroom, which has just opened in a former warehouse in Los Angeles, near Culver City. The facility exists to offer a comprehensive look at the company's storied furniture as well as a peek at future designs, says Lori Gee, Herman Miller's director of workplace solutions. Much of the new showroom is devoted to innovative office furnishings, many of which adapt easily for use in the home. It's also the place to see tricked-out versions of midcentury classics, such as the Eames 670 rocker in white leather and George Nelson's Marshmallow sofa in cowhide, as well as furniture from the company's European division and subsidiary Geiger.

Don't look for any smiling faces around the Stanford athletic department this week. Instead, color them Cardinal, as in embarrassed. The school that brought you the band that couldn't tackle has come up with an encore. It seems that 11 members of the football team, all of them walk-ons, last season were allowed free access to the training table and were given meal money on weekends in violation of NCAA rules.

Ohio State Athletic Director Andy Geiger is retiring after a decade featuring some of the Buckeyes' greatest victories and biggest embarrassments. From the time Maurice Clarett led the Buckeyes to a football national championship in 2002, the athletic department has been beset by NCAA investigations of its football and basketball programs. "I find my work is no longer fun and I no longer look forward with enthusiasm to each day," Geiger, 65, said Wednesday. "I'm just tired. Just bone-weary.

Today the J.A. stands for Just Asking. . . . Didn't we spend the second half of last year listening to how something had to be done to stop the skyrocketing NBA salaries? So why, as soon as the lockout ended, did the Philadelphia 76ers rush to give $54 million to Matt Geiger? Don't they realize the 11.3 points he averaged last season represented a career high? Will they ever develop a system that prevents owners from foolishly spending their money?

As some of the top swimmers in the world gathered at the Santa Clara International Invitational over the weekend, the hot topic was a woman whose best days -- competing in the pool anyway -- are probably behind her. Amanda Beard's Playboy pictorial was all the rage. Asked whether she would consider posing nude, Leisel Jones of Australia, world champion in the breast stroke, laughed and told Times reporter Lisa Dillman, "I don't think I have the body for it. She's got the looks; she can do it."

When he finally decided it was time to get back in uniform and try to contribute to the Philadelphia 76ers' quest for an NBA title, Matt Geiger said it took a big man to admit he made a mistake. A smart coach knows not to hold a grudge. So while many Philadelphia fans proclaimed Geiger should never be allowed to wear 76er colors again, Coach Larry Brown kept encouraging his tender center to find the willpower to at least suit up and try to play.

I heard this anecdote somewhere: Though there were 10 people in his group (including himself and guides), a mountain climber counted 11 people as the climbing party made its ascent. At base camp, he counted again and found there were 10. Who was that 11th person? What the climber experienced is familiar terrain in the Bible (where there are plenty of unexpected encounters with strangers who mysteriously vanish), and it's probably an experience familiar to anyone who has felt an unexplained, consoling "presence" -- there's no better word for it -- during a time of great need: at a dying family member's bedside or during a crisis.

Hiding behind his floppy, jet-black hair, Teddy Geiger looks like any other kid making the uncomfortable transition between teenager and young adult. His shoulders hunched, his hands thrust deeply into his jeans pockets as he wanders through a throng of shoppers at the Grove on his way to a recent interview, Geiger doesn't exhibit the swagger one might expect from an up-and-coming musician who also happens to be carving out a niche for himself in the world of acting. In some ways, Geiger does resemble his character in the music-comedy "The Rocker," which opens in theaters today.

Ohio State Athletic Director Andy Geiger said Tuesday night that he doubted sophomore tailback Maurice Clarett would return to the defending national champion this season. "I'm not optimistic about any number of games at this point," Geiger said. Earlier Tuesday, Coach Jim Tressel said Clarett would no longer practice with the team until questions about his eligibility are answered -- an abrupt reversal from 10 days earlier when he was allowed to work out with the second-ranked Buckeyes.

Peter W. Geiger, 74, a veteran financial advisor to the entertainment industry who had a four-decade career with Bank of America, died Sunday in Los Angeles of complications after heart surgery. Geiger was hired by Bank of America in 1951, when its entertainment lending division was in trouble. Television had begun to keep moviegoers at home, and the bank had foreclosed on 30 films.

The Charlotte Hornets activated forward Matt Geiger, who underwent surgery six weeks ago to remove a herniated disk in his back. To make room for him, the Hornets put little-used forward Tom Chambers, 37, on the injured list because of tendinitis of the left Achilles' tendon. * The Seattle SuperSonics put guard-forward David Wingate on the injured list because of a strained muscle in his right thigh, and activated guard Greg Graham.

Raymond Geiger, 83, the editor who brought weather forecasts, gardening tips and quips to readers of the Farmer's Almanac for six decades. Geiger once estimated that he traveled about 5 million miles, delivered 3,500 speeches and gave 18,000 interviews to pitch the virtues of his almanac. He retired last fall after editing his 60th edition. Like those that preceded it, it was full of weather tips, planting and gardening advice, recipes and plenty of jokes.

The stage was set for the Philadelphia 76ers to collapse and Coach Larry Brown decided to roll the dice. With his team's 15-point lead being chopped up by the Lakers and Dikembe Mutombo on the bench with three fouls and 6:18 remaining in the third quarter, Brown chose to keep his defensive-minded center out of the game and take his chances. "Yes, it surprised me. I was very surprised," said Mutombo, Philadelphia's best defense against the Lakers' Shaquille O'Neal.
