    Brandon Vandenburg and Cory Batey were convicted Tuesday of raping an unconscious woman in a dorm room in 2013.

    The men were each charged with five counts of rape, and two counts of sexual battery for a 2013 incident in which they raped an unconscious 21-year-old student.

    Vandenburg took photos and videos of the incident, which were recovered and shown to jurors during the two-week trial.

    The men were drunk the night of the rape, according to their attorneys. The victim was drunk as well, and wasn't aware that the rape had taken place until Vanderbilt's investigation had already began, the Associated Press reported.

    The incident came to light when Vanderbilt officials reviewed a dormitory surveillance video following a report of vandalism. When they reviewed the footage, they saw an unconscious woman being dragged into a dorm room. That is when they called Nashville Police, who opened an investigation.

    Detectives asked the woman to get a physical examination, but she initially refused, still not knowing what had happened.

    Vandenburg and Batey face years in prison when they're sentenced in March. Two other former players are facing charges in the incident, although their trials have yet to be scheduled.

    A new study from researchers at Boston University draws a link between youth football and diminished cognitive ability.

    Kena Krutsinger / Getty Images

    A new study from the Boston University School of Medicine confirms a relationship between tackle football played by children younger than 12 and impaired brain development later in life.

    The study was done on 42 former NFL players between the ages of 40 and 69 who were divided into two groups: Those who began playing tackle football before the age of 12, and those who began later. Participants underwent a large number of tests, ranging from psychiatric evaluations to neuroimaging. Players averaged seven to nine years in the NFL and 17-20 years of total play.

    Results of the study determined that players subjected to repetitive head trauma before they turned 12 were more likely to experience cognitive impairment later in life. Researchers chose the age of 12 as their boundary due to previous studies on adolescent brain development.

    Given standard neurological assessment tests, researchers found a "significant" difference between the results of the two groups. Those who began playing tackle football before the age of 12 produced mean scores that were not only noticeably lower than those of their counterparts, but that were below the standard deviation of the tests. That is to say, their scores were lower than that of the average test taker.

    The researchers also asserted that though there was a divide between the cognitive function of the two groups, it doesn't prove that starting tackle football after turning 12 is any safer.

    Participation in youth football dropped 9.5% between 2010 and 2012, likely due to greater awareness of the link between football (and repetitive head trauma, both concussive and non-concussive) and neurological damage.

    Last year, the NFL attempted to settle a lawsuit filed on behalf of 5,000 former players for $675 million. But after further examination, a judge determined that the amount offer was not enough to cover the substantial medical needs of former players suffering from injuries sustained during, or as a result of, the game and rejected the deal.

    A 20-year-old Seahawks fan got the surprise of his life when he delivered lunch to the Legion of Boom. Austin Calhoun spoke with BuzzFeed News.

    instagram.com

    Last week, Dominos Pizza employee Austin Calhoun pulled up to Richard Sherman's home to deliver a stack of pizzas. The 20-year-old Seattle-area native immediately noticed that this was a moment unlike the previous two times he'd delivered to the mansion in Maple Valley, Washington.

    Those previous deliveries were during away game weeks, and Sherman's girlfriend, Ashley Moss, was the one accepting the pizza. On his 10-minute drive over to the residence, he'd thought to himself, "Huh, maybe Richard will be there this time."

    When Calhoun arrived, he found Sherman's driveway filled with cars. He walked toward the garage, where Sports Illustrated photographer Robert Beck was conducting the photoshoot. He first saw safety Earl Thomas, then took another step toward the garage and thought, "Oh shit, they're all here."

    Calhoun lives in nearby Covington, and told BuzzFeed News he's a lifelong Seahawks fan who is reeling with envy over his grandmother and uncle, who are in Arizona to attend the Seahawks' second Super Bowl in as many years. His coworkers at Dominos, who have also delivered to Richard Sherman's home on less exciting days, probably feel little sympathy for him, though.

    When the players and photographer noticed him walking toward them with their order, someone told him to "get in the picture," and so he did. Photos of Calhoun with the most intimidating secondary in the NFL — the Legion of Boom — ran in a gallery that appeared in Sports Illustrated's online version of the feature. In the photos, he hands the stack of boxes to Richard Sherman, who had told SI that he wouldn't appear on the cover without his teammates. Calhoun is facing the squad, face-to-face with Kam Chancellor, whose jersey he wears while watching games with friends and family.

    instagram.com

    After watching the Seahawks with his family throughout his childhood — Walter Jones was his favorite while growing up — Calhoun says he realized "this team could be something special" after the tough loss they took to the Falcons in the 2012 Divisional Round.

    Calhoun is excited for the Seahawks' second run for a ring, and thinks the match-up against the Patriots will be competitive and intense, unlike last year's 43-8 blowout against the Broncos. "It's like Peyton Manning just gave up after he caused a safety in the first quarter," he says, not inaccurately.

    Now that the Seahawks have one Super Bowl victory under their belts, Calhoun says he's feeling confident and eagerly anticipates watching Sunday's game with close friends.

    He hopes, along with his fellow Seahawks fans, widely known as the team's "12th Man," that the next time he delivers pizza to the best cornerback in the game, he'll be readying himself for the team's second consecutive victory parade.

    Matt Kiebus and Logan Rhoades: Where is the Super Bowl being played?

    Tanner Ringerud: Aren't they all played in Hawaii? Isn't that why John Madden can never go? He's afraid of flying. Is that right?

    Kiebus and Rhoades note: Close, just about 2,900 miles off. Super Bowl XLIX is in Glendale, Arizona. John Madden hasn't called a football game since 2008, but Tanner's right — he is afraid of flying.

    Who is playing in the Super Bowl?

    TR: Patriots? Are they the Boston Patriots? I don't know who they're playing against. If I had to guess, I'd say the Bills, but that's only because I've seen a few people around the office in Bills hats.

    The New England Patriots are playing the Seattle Seahawks. But those Buffalo Bills fans in the office sound like some funny, handsome, loyal dudes.

    What divisions are the two teams from?

    TR: There are divisions?! Um… The Patriots are from the Wolves of Fenris and I guess the Bills are Chaos Space Marines. I don't know. That's probably not right. The Bills are Abnegation and the Patriots are faction-less. Tom Brady is Divergent.

    I'm not entirely sure this was written in English, but the correct answer is AFC East and NFC West.

    What player loves Skittles?

    TR: This is a trick question. Who doesn't love Skittles? All of the above.

    I can't argue with that logic, but the answer we were looking for was Marshawn Lynch.

    Where do the New England Patriots play their home games (city, not the stadium)?

    TR: Oh, NEW ENGLAND Patriots! Do they play in Boston? They must. Where else would they play? Like, Providence?

    The Patriots play in bumblefuck Foxborough, Massachusetts, which is basically halfway between Providence and Boston.

    In the New York State Senate and U.S. Congress, lawmakers try to put an end to the league’s tax-exempt status.

    Ronald Martinez / Getty Images

    Two days before the 49th Super Bowl, the NFL is being challenged on its status as a tax-exempt nonprofit in Congress and the New York State Senate.

    State Sen. Brad Hoylman, who represents Manhattan's 27th District — where the NFL's headquarters is located — presented a bill to the state Senate on Friday, asking to amend the section of the state tax law that allows the NFL to hold unique privileges as a tax-exempt corporation. Assemblywoman Deborah Glick is sponsoring a similar bill in the state Assembly.

    Hoylman's hope is that by revoking the league's status in the state law, it will send a message to the federal government that a corporation that nets nearly $10 billion in annual revenue does not need the financial privileges afforded to other 501© nonprofits.

    In Washington, Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz has proposed a similar bill to alter the federal tax law. His bill would exclude all professional sports leagues from consideration for tax-exempt status. In addition to the NFL, the PGA Tour, NHL, and LPGA are recognized as nonprofit organizations. MLB voluntarily surrendered its tax-exempt status in 2007, and the NBA has always been a publicly for-profit organization.

    Chaffetz makes his stance clear: "To say establishments like the NFL are not for profit organizations is laughable. They are a for-profit and should be taxed as such."

    There have been other recent efforts in Congress to alter the NFL's tax-exempt status, including legislation proposed by New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker and Washington Sen. Maria Cantwell, but those bills failed to gain wide support.

    Hoylman recognizes that this initiative may be a multiyear effort, but is determined to get the NFL to contribute financially to the state in which it's headquartered.

    In 1966, a clause was added to the tax code that states:

    IRC 501©(6) provides for exemption of business leagues, chambers of
    commerce, real estate boards, boards of trade, and professional football
    leagues (whether or not administering a pension fund for football players),
    which are not organized for profit and no part of the net earnings of which
    inures to the benefit of any private shareholder or individual.

    The NFL's argument for maintaining its status has always been that the bulk of the leagues overall revenue — about $9.5 billion per year — is earned by its 32 individual franchises. However, the league collects dues from the individual teams to cover league payroll and also collects revenue, largely through television broadcast deals, and distributes that to individual teams. According to reports, Commissioner Roger Goodell earned $44.2 million in 2012, which included his $3.5 million salary and a $40 million bonus.

    The team could lose a draft pick if found guilty, ESPN reported.

    The team is being accused of playing the fake crowd sounds in their stadium in an attempt to distract the opposing team in its huddle.

    The NFL is expected to punish the team, according to ESPN. The Falcons could lose a draft pick or be fined.

    However, there is debate in football circles about how much crowd noise really helps a team, with NFL figures telling ESPN that the rise of silent counts have made excess noise not that big of a deal.

    An NFL spokesman told BuzzFeed News the league had no comment on the ESPN report.

    The team is aware that the league is investigating crowd noise during its games, a Falcons spokesman told BuzzFeed News.

    "We have cooperated fully with them, and we're awaiting the outcome," the spokesman said.

    The Falcons had a 6-10 record this past season and placed third in the NFC Southern Division. They were 3-5 at their home stadium, the Georgia Dome.
