Jahvid Best's history makes future unclear


ESPN blog update on Jahvid Best's concussion from his game against the Niners. On his long play that ended just short of the goal, you could see that his head hit the turf extremely hard. The announcers didn't notice, but the slow-motion replay showed it clearly. Just hope Jahvid is able to walk away from the game mentally intact.

Oregon Recruiting Under Microscope


Will we ever stop the professionalization of college athletics? If schools can contract with recruiting services and individual recruiters to secure commitments from high school athletes, how is that any different than working with agents, or headhunters in the non-sports world? It's a glaring opportunity to hide pay for play. Maybe the NCAA should require that only school employees be involved in recruiting.


Aaron Rodgers heading to Lions

Maybe not now, but eventually. It's fate. The QB has already played for the Vikings (at Pleasant Valley High School in Chico) and Bears (in college at Cal). Now he's a Packer. Can there be any...

Aaron Rodgers' High School Backs the Pack


After visiting one of my brokers in Chico this morning, I stopped by Aaron Rodgers' high school where Green Bay Packers fever is running high. Someone turned their VW Bug into a Packermobile, school staff are wearing customized Packers gear with Rodgers' name on it, and the sign out front officially declares the area Mr. Rodgers' neighborhood.

Fan Appreciation Day Pics


In case you couldn't be at Fan Appreciation Day today, I'm posting my pics on flickr. Should have everything done tonight.

Pac-10 Expansion Sucks More Every Day


Apparently there's still hope to undo Larry Scott's evil plan. Hey, if the Big-12 can get more money now as a 10-team league, why not the Pac-10 without Colorotten and Ewetah? Let 'em join the Mountain West like everyone else!


Rutgers' Great Idea - Stadium Naming Rights

As conference realignment shows, nothing matters in college sports as much as money.  Not tradition.  Not regional rivalry.  And certainly not academic integrity.  So why shouldn't the Pac-12, and...
