Texas A&M freshman Patrick Kypson is a talented men’s tennis player—he’s among the top 100 performers in the sport on the sixth-ranked team in the nation. He’s also the goober you see hocking a juicy loogie into his own hand in the above photo.

Last Friday, the Aggies made the trip to Columbus, Ohio to face off against No. 2 Ohio State in a match that would turn out to be one of the best seen so far this season; the two top-10 programs both put on excellent performances, with the Buckeyes edging out Texas A&M 4-3 when it was all said and done.

Kypson, the one-seed for the Aggies, took on his Ohio State counterpart in freshman J.J. Wolf, who entered the match ranked No. 44 in singles play. The clash was a rematch of the 2017 USTA Boys 18s National Championships finals in Kalamazoo, Mich., in which Kypson downed Wolf 6-4, 1-6, 6-3, 6-2. On Friday, though, Wolf got the better of his fellow freshman, beating Kypson in three sets, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4.

Damien Cox: Getzlaf-Perry era might be nearing end in Anaheim

  Damien Cox: Getzlaf-Perry era might be nearing end in Anaheim John Stockton and Karl Malone. Alan Trammell and Lou Whitaker. Anthony Calvillo and Ben Cahoon.Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry? Sure, you could put the two Anaheim Ducks in that kind of company somewhere. For longevity, at the very least.Getzlaf and Perry have for more than a decade been pretty much the signature duo of the Orange County crew. There have been plenty of other star players to go through the Ducks system. But Getzlaf and Perry have been the constants.They were drafted nine slots apart in 2003 (Getzlaf 19th overall, Perry with the 28th pick), started the 2005-06 season together with the Portland Pirates and were summoned to the parent club in Anaheim at about the same time.

The story isn’t the defeat, here—both are talented young college players that will likely be the anchor of their programs in the coming three-plus years and accrue a number of victories over top-100 opponents. No, the story comes after match, when Kypson, who was processing his first defeat at the collegiate level, acted like someone who was feeling the sting of defeat for the first time in their existence on this planet.

In a video posted online, after Kypson’s final return flew long, Wolf raised his hand to celebrate the victory with an excited group of Buckeyes fans in the stands. As the Ohio State player approaches the net, Kypson can be seen spitting, or pretending to spit, in his hand and offering it out to his opponent. Wolf, noticing at the last second, ducked his hand under Kypson’s and headed to the umpire.

Taylor Hall on getting kneed by Alex Burrows: ‘He kind of lost his mind’

  Taylor Hall on getting kneed by Alex Burrows: ‘He kind of lost his mind’ Ottawa Senators forward Alexandre Burrows is no stranger to controversy, and his latest shenanigans could warrant a talking to from the NHL’s department of player safety. Burrows went after New Jersey Devils star Taylor Hall with just under 10 minutes remaining in the second period Tuesday night, dragging Hall to the ice before appearing to knee Hall in the head.Hall seemed to be leaving a scrum before being accosted by Burrows, who was given four minutes in penalties for his efforts (two for cross-checking, two for roughing).

It’s unclear whether Kypson was punished internally for his apparent actions; while the team news page has not been updated to reflect any announced suspensions, the rookie did not appear in Sunday’s match against No. 24 Texas Tech (the Aggies did just fine, winning 4-3). Deadspin reached out to the spokesperson for Texas A&M men’s tennis, inquiring if the program or athletic department had any comment on the video and if Kypson was suspended for the match against the Red Raiders. They did not respond in time for publication; if they do get back to us, we will update this post with their response.

Update (6:42 p.m.): Texas A&M responded to our request this evening with the following comment from men’s tennis head coach Steve Denton:

“Sportsmanship and respect are pillars of the sport of tennis and Texas A&M, and Patrick Kypson’s actions at the conclusion of his match at Ohio State were counter to that. He has been appropriately disciplined for his behavior. Patrick’s not only remorseful for what he did, but is acting on that to show that he learned a valuable lesson. We will support him in that effort. We have addressed his actions with him and with our friends at Ohio State.”

Tiger Woods' driving issues may be curbed this week for a simple reasonConversely, driving accuracy has never been Tiger's forte. An issue that's been amplified in appearances at Torrey Pines and Riviera, as the 14-time major winner has hit just 35.71 percent (30/84) of fairways in return. Six rounds is not enough to count towards the tour's official stats, but out of the 214 golfers who qualify, only Andrew Loupe (33.12 percent) has been worse in driving precision. In short, if Woods wants to stop battling the cutline, improved play off the tee is vital.
