Wally Renfro not testifying because NCAA trial more than 100 miles from Indy home. Here's Wally in Orlando last week.
Some nuanced & some not, but Mark Emmert is fragging a lot of ex-NCAA bigs. Making it look like few people actually understood NCAA mission.
NCAA argues Emmert shouldn't have to testify to emails prior to his tenure? It's not O'Bannon vs. Emmert. It's O'Bannon vs NCAA. All of it.
Great. "@USATGerryAhern: Our @RachelAxon and Josh Peter go in search of the Juice's White Ford Bronco.
Sources: Florida WR coach Joker Phillips was photographed sitting with a recruit at a restaurant during dead period.
Sources: Joker Phillips stepped down at Florida after a tipster tied to Miami Hurricanes gave NCAA a damning photo.
Yep. "O'Bannon side should explain to fans that a [legal] win means they can have a [video] game with real names/faces/etc.”
I can't comprehend the NCAA arguing a player's Name/Image/Likeness isn't a commodity sold to television networks. Hello? Johnny Manziel?
No doubt. "@darrenrovell: The most talk about video game suit/O'Bannon by fans? How mad they are NCAA Football game doesn't exist anymore.”
"Jackson says he sent a letter to the NFLPA in March...asking it to investigate Rosenhaus' dealings with him but never got a response..."

Pete Carroll suggesting he didn't think NCAA's case against USC was active is wildly improbable. USC was on the hearings docket B4 he left.
Worth mentioning that Pete Carroll left USC after - after - the school was notified their case was going to the infractions committee. #fact

Michigan pivots from Damien Harris to Ty Isaac. Smart.
Every team Don Zimmer played for, coached and managed is claiming him as one of their own. No better tribute.

This line in NCAA's icy response to the $40 mil EA Sports settlement w/ No self awareness whatsoever.

What about Steve Ballmer? "@darrenrovell: Sources: Donald Sterling declared mentally incapacitated by experts.”
Donald Sterling: "I will NOT sell my...wait, what? Never mind. I'm good."
Wow. $2 Billion for the LA Clippers. If Sterling had known that price tag, he would have shared his thoughts years ago.
THIS. "@nickbaumgardner: Arguing a school is still "very much in the mix" for a kid who just walked away generally makes little sense.”
Someone needs a scoreboard to keep track of former Michigan leans/commits. "@Damien_D1Harris: Notre Dame came by today! #GoIrish 🍀🍀🍀”
All those Michigan fans who went nuts when I suggested Damien Harris was long gone for UM...curious how you're feeling right now.
The lady next to Manziel clearly a Steelers fan. "@betterman712: Real nice guy. Glad I got to meet him! @JManziel2

At some point, the maintenance on Suh + price becomes a net negative for the Detroit Lions. This is not Warren Sapp in his prime years.
So Ndamukong Suh is "happy in Detroit", but points out he didn't have to be there? Smacks of someone who doesn't feel he's appreciated.
This is great. Good for Bradley. Seems happy. "@JodieValade: Excellent look at 7-6 Shawn Bradley in 30for30 short.…
Draft lottery is officially bullshit. Congrats to Cleveland. But NBA needs a rule that disallows winning the lottery in consecutive years.
Kevin Ollie has reached agreement on a $3 million annual contract extension at UConn, spurning the NBA, sources tell Yahoo Sports.

Searched online archive of major newspaper & clicked on a story from 2012. The price to read it? $4.95. Good luck with that 1980s biz model.
