College Sports News

A member of the Upper Iowa football program has reportedly been arrested for assaulting a police officer, according to the Iowa City Press-Citizen. The player, 19-year-old Turner Joseph Ellis, was arrested and charged with assault on persons in certain occupations, bodily injury. The charge is an aggravated misdemeanor.

We still have a few months until the 2018-19 college basketball season kicks off, but ESPN analyst Dick Vitale isn’t letting that stop him from taking a look at what is to come. In a recent exchange on social media, the man affectionately known as Dickie V dropped his knowledge on who he believes the top four team in the nation will be.

Entertainment News

While incredibly hard to make it as an actor, should someone manage to actually do it the payoff can be more than worth it. All these actors have been established in the industry for years, and it has been their ability to consistently crank out box office hits for decades that has resulted in them accumulating such wealth. In most cases though, it is not only their work in films that has caused them to become so wealthy, but also having strong business sense and knowing how to invest that has resulted in them landing a spot on this list.
