  1. Documents and bank records obtained in discovery during the federal investigation into the underbelly of college basketball detail in meticulous fashion the expenditures of prominent former NBA agent Andy Miller, his former associate Christian Dawkins and his agency, ASM Sports. They include expense reports and balance sheets that list cash advances, as well as entertainment and travel expenses for high school and college prospects and their families. Yahoo Sports viewed hundreds of pages of documents from the years-long probe that had federal authorities monitoring multiple targets and i
  2. An interesting and funny take on why UCF’s national title claim isn’t as goofy as it sounds. http://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/21954302/ucf-not-first-school-call-national-champion
  3. Since I'm tired of reading everyone here bickering like an old married couple about the current state of UNT athletics, I had an interesting thought about the Harrell Passing School. With Harrell's current status as an OC and the NCAA ruling of no satellite camps, does this mean he will no longer be able to participate/evaluate those players? I see this as a potential leg up for recruiting but I am curious as to whether or not it violates any sanctions as far as recruiting those players and the satellite camp rules now in place.
  4. http://espn.go.com/college-football/story/_/id/13556664/oregon-vernon-adams-florida-state-everett-golson-reignite-graduate-transfer-discussion I'm for the graduate transfer rule, but there should be something in place that forces/enforces the student to complete a graduate degree.
  5. North Texas has one of the nation's quirkier schedules. The Mean Green begin the season with a bye, so they'll be at home watching while everyone else is playing after a nine-month wait. Then, after opening the season at Southern Methodist on Sept. 12, North Texas will play 12 straight games after adding a nonconference game at Tennessee on Nov. 12. "This is the first time I've gone 12 in a row; there's always been a break," North Texas coach Don McCarney said. "That won't happen again, but that's what we've got this season and we've got to play it out, hopefully find a way to be successful."
  6. USC President C. L. Max Nikias was 1,400 miles from the Los Angeles campus, but he knew just how to appeal to his audience. In a swanky hotel ballroom, he told the crowd of alumni and donors that Texas had become the largest feeder of students to USC after California, and that students from their state scored significantly higher on the SAT than the average of all applicants. Then he introduced Texas' first lady, Cecilia Abbott, whose daughter will attend USC in the fall. That, he joked, could cause conflicts for the governor's family during football games. The three-day, three-city Trojan spr
  7. STILLWATER — The Oklahoma State football program was put on one-year probation, fined $8,500, given self-imposed recruiting restrictions and had its student-athlete host program temporarily suspended following an NCAA ruling Friday that the university did not follow its drug testing policy or properly regulate its Orange Pride program. DRUG TESTING From January 2008 to October 2012, five football players who tested positive for banned substances participated in a total of seven games in which they should have been withheld, in accordance with the university’s policy. OSU athletic dire
  8. This from Dan Wolken from USA Today: "The difference between those two approaches highlights perhaps the biggest misperception about autonomy. Though it has been framed largely as a divide between the haves and have-nots in college athletics, there are enough financial differences among the 65 power conference schools to make the details sticky in almost any reform proposal, even if there is wide philosophical agreement. "There are probably 20 schools for whom this is like, no big deal, bring it on, whatever number you come up with we can handle it," Bobinski said. "The other 45, there

  10. The Big Ten's presidents and chancellors on Tuesday issued a statement on the O'Bannon v. NCAA case being heard over the past three weeks in Oakland, pledging a commitment to guaranteed four-year scholarships that are binding even if an athlete leaves school early to begin a professional career. The statement also included a reiteration of the conference's support for cost-of-attendance scholarships and "improved, consistent medical insurance for student-athletes." "The best solutions rest not with the courts, but with us - presidents of the very universities that promote and respect t
  11. When interviewing a college administrator, coach or athlete, every sportswriter has at one time or another thought, "If only I could get these people under oath." That's exactly what has happened the past two weeks in Oakland, Calif., during the trial concerning the lawsuit filed by former UCLA basketball star Ed O'Bannon against the NCAA over NILs, i.e. names, images and likenesses of athletes used by the NCAA in both television broadcast rights and marketing. O'Bannon believes student-athletes are entitled to the money that comes from those NILs. The NCAA argues paying players would viol

North Carolina, Miami, Penn State -- to me there is still less risk in cheating and until they fix this with some steep penalties it will continue... read more: http://www.cbssports.com/collegefootball/writer/jon-solomon/24560341/all-quiet-on-the-violations-front-is-ncaa-enforcement-dead
  13. The University of Tulsa, the American Athletic Conference and schools and leagues just like them would like two assurances coming out of last week's big NCAA announcement about Power Five autonomy: One is maintaining the football scholarship limit of 85. The other is continuing the current form of shared governance. If granting the ACC, the Big 12, the Big Ten, the Pac-12 and the SEC legislative autonomy due to their expansive revenues means those leagues can add football scholarships, that would create a competitive imbalance with which schools in the AAC, Conference USA, the MAC, the Mou
  14. I think the concept of putting money aside that would be collected by the student athlete after they graduate and can be used for graduate school education etc is a pretty good one... Also it appears that the whistleblower Mary Wilingham at North Carolina is going to testify in front of Congress in regards to the NCarolina scandal and I expect her testimony to be pretty telling. It's an interesting controversy, on the one hand you have the greed of the power schools and their desire to separate legislatively. On the other hand, the LAST thing they want to do is move away from the student ath

  19. Looks like the judge is going to allow the players lawsuit to go forward. EA Sports was saying that they could use the players likeness due to 1st amendment rights...hogwash -- it was GREED!! But the problem is the NCAA doesn't allow them to get paid!! Norm said this could be a HUGE financial windfall for the players and the NCAA is already separated from EA... could get UGLY!
  20. NEW YORK (AP) — The five power conferences are trying to redefine what it takes to operate a Division I college athletic program, with their commissioners calling out the NCAA at media days around the country. Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby and fellow commissioners Mike Slive of the Southeastern Conference and John Swofford of the Atlantic Coast Conference have taken turns critiquing the NCAA over the last week, and it's likely Jim Delany of the Big Ten and Larry Scott of the Pac-12 will follow suit in the coming days. The schools in the most powerful and wealthy leagues want more freedo
  21. In Gilman School football parlance, it’s called recruiting fatigue. After guiding the Baltimore-based Greyhounds for 16 years, Biff Poggi can immediately recognize the symptoms. First, the college coach calls, wondering why Recruit X switched off his cell phone’s voice mail, or why his Facebook account lay dormant for several days. Poggi then approaches the player, asking about a broken phone. “No,” the player typically responds. “I’m just tired of talking.” Thursday, the NCAA Board of Directors will meet in Indianapolis to reconsider legislation deregulating communication between coaches
  22. The NCAA Division I Board of Directors on Thursday suspended the relaxing of football recruiting rules after receiving more than 75 override requests from its membership. Adopted in January, the new measures would have allowed unlimited contact with recruits and would have increased the number and kind of athletics department staffers who could contact and engage prospects. Such a change would essentially have allowed the creation of "player personnel" departments in football programs that could afford such staffing. "We are supportive of moving as aggressively as possible while still stu

  24. In a matter of minutes, NCAA president Mark Emmert, along with Oregon State president Ed Ray, chair of the NCAA’s executive committee, will hand down major sanctions for Penn State’s football program, the first such penalties in program history. Although it has been widely reported that Penn State won’t be hit with the so-called “death penalty,” the NCAA is expected to level unprecedented sanctions. Potential penalties include scholarship losses, a ban from postseason play, a ban from all games and hefty fines. A TV ban? While it seems unlikely, nothing is off the table here. The effec
