O'Bannon NCAA lawsuit feature on CNN

10
130402101321-ed-obannon-top-single-image-cut

Barring something crazy in the news happening! It is just over 3 mintues in length. I am guessing they will have the reporter, Ted Rowlands, on to expound on it. My understanding is this will first air on CNN Newsroom during 10A EST hour. The show is hosted by Carol Costello. The show does start at 9A EST. So if you want to not miss it you may want to set your DVRs an hour earlier. After it airs I anticipate it will be posted to the web around 11a so you can also watch it then. It will also show a glimpse into his current life and the interview itself was pretty decent with Ed talking about why he sued and how he is not in it for the money.

UPDATE: The Biebs news knocked O'Bannon our of the show. I am told it may come back at the same time tomorrow (1/23), but it is good until at least the next hearing on 2/3 or if some kind of settlement happened (unlikely). There are no guarantees on a sports story on CNN unless it is Richard Sherman and racist blowback.

UPDATE:

Breaking up is hard to do, but it shouldn't be

Offense and defense: Howland needs to be good at both

I comment on this all the time, but I thought I would sum it up again. I believe you need not just a top offense, but one of the best offenses to win it all. You also need a top defense to go...

Wilbon on PTI

Wilbon sums it up nicely on Combs. The question remains why this kid and why now? If I know the media it probably started form a bored AP or Reuters writer that did a fluff piece then the journalists saw the big entertainment name and wanted to 'grow' the story out by lining up inane guests to fill time. That's how it works.

Nakase CNN International Feature

Tip of the hat to Bruins Nation! I saw a link on this site, pitched the story to my bosses and they sent it to the bureau in Japan who made this piece. Your influence can now be felt around the world! Incidentally this aired on our network last week and should be making the rounds on World Sport on CNN Internaional. You can see it on the boob tube if you have comcast as your cable provider hopefully at 5:30p EST and Midnight. Then again England naming Roy Hodgson could change those plans.

Painful

is my word of the game... why do I keep rooting for Zeke to foul out?  Howland needs to change his style.  Zeke can't run a team.  Our guards can't control the game at all.  Nelson is our best...

That is the best word to describe that performance.    That was eerily similar to the Fullerton Fiasco in 2009 except this team has a lot more talent.  Did Howland even coach in this game?   Did we...
