RIO DE JANEIRO -- The man named to head Irelands Olympic committee after its president was arrested in a ticket-scalping case during the Rio Games is also suspected of participating in the scheme but left Brazil before he could be questioned, police said Tuesday.Authorities said William OBrien, who took responsibility for the Irish committee after Patrick Hickey was detained last week, departed from Brazil one day before authorities obtained a warrant to seize his passport and mobile devices in a Sunday raid.There are a lot of messages mentioning William OBrien along with Patrick Hickey, Aloysio Falcao, one of the investigators in the case, said after a news conference.Falcao said Brazilian investigators will be requesting help from the Irish government.Hickey, president of the Olympic Council of Ireland and a member of the International Olympic Committees executive board, is being held in Rios Bangu prison complex as the investigation expands.Charged with conspiracy, ticket scalping and ambush marketing, Hickey is accused of plotting with other members of the Ireland committee and two companies to sell tickets above face value in a scheme that authorities say could have netted about $3 million in profits. More than 1,000 tickets have been seized in the investigation.Authorities say the Irish company Pro 10 Sports Management was created to facilitate the transfer of tickets between that countrys committee and an unauthorized vendor called THG Sports that would sell them for high fees disguised as hospitality services. THG Sports was accused of a similar scheme in the World Cup.Investigators determined last week that the choice of Pro 10 as the authorized ticket reseller for Ireland was a joint decision by the Irish committee.On Sunday, hours before the Rio Games closing ceremony, police executed search warrants at the Olympic Village to seize passports and other items from three members of the Ireland committee, including Ireland team leader Kevin Kilty, chief executive Stephen Martin and secretary-general Dermot Henihan.Police confiscated 228 tickets for the ceremony from Kiltys room.Henihan appeared at police headquarters Tuesday to answer questions, and investigators said there was no evidence to link his involvement in the alleged scheme.Kilty and Martin had been expected to also testify Tuesday, but officials said their lawyers had asked for a postponement to have more time to review documents in the case.The investigation has been unfolding since the Olympics began Aug. 5, when the head of THG Sports was arrested with tickets allocated to the Olympic Council of Ireland.The council declined to comment Tuesday.

That big sigh of relief you heard Friday came from the folks charged with deciding whos in and whos out of the College Football Playoff.Thanks to Louisville, theyve got one less team to worry about.Those big cheers you heard? They came from the Big Ten, which suddenly has a much better chance of hoarding half of the four-team playoff field.Louisville, led by Heisman Trophy favorite Lamar Jackson, had been preemptively seething about the possibility of winding up with the short end of the stick after being judged No. 5 in the most recent rankings put out by the selection committee.The Cardinals should have been more concerned with taking care of business on the field.After a dismal performance Thursday night at Houston, theyve got no room to complain.Louisville fumbled away the opening kickoff and was already behind just 11 seconds into the game. It only got worse from there, as the Cardinals trailed 31-0 at halftime on the way to a 36-10 drubbing.We got beat by their offense, we got beat by their defense, we got beat by their special teams, coach Bobby Petrino said. It was just one of those games where you get your butt beat.With Louisville off the board, lets take a look at four teams likely to be playing in the national semifinals on New Years Eve:ALABAMA -- The defending national champions are the only unbeaten team left from the Power Five ranks, and there seems little chance that Nick Sabans squad will stumble between now and selection day. The Crimson Tide (10-0) faces road-kill Chattanooga on Saturday before closing out the regular season against Auburn in the Iron Bowl. Given the way the Tigers were exposed by Georgia, failing to make even one first down in the second half, they have no chance of pulling off a massive upset at Bryant-Denny Stadium. After that, Alabama must go through the motions of the Southeastern Conference championship game against whoever emerges from the Least -- uhh, make that East -- Division. Then, its on the playoff and a shot at the fifth national title of Sabans decade-long tenure in Tuscaloosa.OHIO STATE OR MICHIGAN -- The Big Ten behemoths wont have any trouble this weekend. Michigan is hosting lowly Indiana, while Ohio State travels to Michigan State to take on the three-win Spartans. Then, its on to the Playoff for the Playoff, otherwise known as The Game. Playing at the big horseshoe, Ohio State will be the favorite. Should the Buckeyes win, they might even get to avoid the potential stumbling block of the Big Ten championship game.dddddddddddd That honor would go to Penn State, assuming the Nittany Lions win their final two games to claim the tiebreaker by virtue of a stunning 24-21 win over Ohio State last month. No matter who plays for the Big Ten title, the Michigan-Ohio State winner is headed for the playoff.CLEMSON -- The Tigers, who were runners-up to Alabama last season and figured to be the Crimson Tides strongest challenger again, stumbled badly with a home loss to Pittsburgh. Still, Clemson (9-1) can lock up its spot by closing the regular season with wins over improving Wake Forest and rival South Carolina, before taking out someone from the weak side of the Atlantic Coast Conference in the leagues championship game. The Tigers resume is a bit lacking now that Louisvilles second loss takes some of the luster off their best win. But the selection committee would surely go with Deshaun Watson & Co. at 12-1, especially if the alternative was taking a couple of two-loss teams.A SECOND BIG TEN TEAM -- If Penn State and Wisconsin both win out, and Ohio State beats Michigan, the winner of the Big Ten title will be in prime position to claim the final playoff spot. What about Washington? Yes, the Huskies (9-1) are still very much in the running, even after an ugly home loss last weekend, but its hard to see them winning out. They close the regular season with a very challenging road game against on-the-rise rival Washington State (8-2). Even if they get past that, theres still the Pac-12 championship game and a possible rematch against Southern Cal, the team that just beat up Washington 26-13. Another possibility is a two-loss Oklahoma team, should it win the largely overlooked Big 12. At this point, though, the Sooners are merely a backup option should someone falter.No matter what, the committee doesnt have to worry about Louisville mucking things up.We blew it, Petrino said bluntly.With that, the playoff picture got a whole lot clearer.---Paul Newberry is a sports columnist for The Associated Press.
