Hand ball: In soccer, an illegal touch easily identifiable on television; a referee's problem, not France's.

Holliday, Matt: Three-time All-Star as a member of the Colorado Rockies. Second in 2007 National League MVP voting. Traded to Oakland A's in Nov. 2008 in deal for closer Huston Street. Had .831 OPS in 93 games for Oakland. In July 2009, traded to St. Louis Cardinals for three minor-league prospects; compiled 1.023 OPS for St. Louis in 63 games. Tried to catch ball with groin in 2009 playoffs. Free agent; will try to convince an American League team to overpay for a National League player.

Iverson, Allen: College: Georgetown. One of only two Hoyas to leave school early under John Thompson. No. 1 pick in 1996 NBA draft, Philadelphia 76ers. Rookie of the Year, 1997. Two-time All-Star Game MVP. League MVP, 2000-2001. Hates to practice. Won't come off bench. Even Knicks don't want him.

Mangino, Mark: Kansas Jayhawks football coach (2002-present). Led team to Orange Bowl with 12-1 record in 2007, school's first BCS invitation. In 2007, won National Coach of the Year honors from numerous publications, including the Associated Press and ESPN/ABC, and was also named Woody Hayes Coach of the Year. Unlike Hayes, did not end his career by decking an opposing player. Reserves animosity for own players.

Turnover: In football, to lose possession of the ball through a mistake (a fumble, intercepted pass or coaching arrogance).
