Expectations low...discipline high - 05/19/14

The Vanderbilt men's golf team has qualified for the NCAA Tournament.  This marks the first time since 2007 that the Commodores will vie for a National Championship on the links.

Head coach Scott Limbaugh has been talking to his team a lot leading up to the trip to Kansas.  His message to his players is summed up in four words - expectations low, discipline high.

In other words, Limbaugh wants his team to focus on what it takes to win the title, not just winning the title.  The second year coach knows it's all in the attention to detail on EVERY hole, not just the FINAL hole of the tournament.

Good luck to the Commodore men, and also all of the women's golfers for Vanderbilt who have qualified for the NCAA Women's Tournament in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Vanderbilt is one of only 11 schools scheduled to compete in both fields this week.

GIANT EARTHWORMS RETURN

LEWISTON, Idaho (AP) -- Giant worms! No, we're not talking about a summer horror flick but the result of spring showers. Rare, giant earthworms are appearing on the Palouse Prairie in Idaho. Worm lover Cass Davis tells the Lewiston Tribune he found three foot-long worms while hiking last weekend. He thinks they're giant Palouse earthworms, which can grow up to a yard long. The worms were believed to have been extinct until a researcher found one a decade ago.

SEX FOR DRUG TESTS

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) -- It's a case involving sex and drugs -- but with a twist. Now a lab tech is going to prison. Prosecutors in Albuquerque, New Mexico, say Jayson Bice offered to fix women's drug tests in exchange for sex. He's been sentenced to six years. A jury earlier convicted Bice of extortion and accepting a bribe. He pleaded guilty in April to two other extortion counts.

HOUSTON GORILLAS

HOUSTON (AP) -- It's a $28 million dream home. But the residents are just a bunch of big apes. The Houston Zoo is showing off its new gorilla quarters. Seven of the endangered primates now live in the new state-of-the-art indoor and outdoor exhibit. A family of three of those gorillas are transplants from the Bronx Zoo in New York. It took Houston Zoo officials four years of fundraising and construction to make the gorilla home a reality.

WATER USE APP

FRESNO, Calif. (AP) -- Some California school kids are turning high-tech entrepreneurs. Five Riverview Elementary School students in Fresno have come up with an idea for an app to monitor water use. The state is in the grip of a record drought. The Fresno Bee reports the kids presented their idea to officials in March. Now, the Fresno Chamber of Commerce and businesses including AT&T are kicking in more than 50,000 bucks to develop the app. It will be free and should be available for download by the time school starts in the fall.
