DBD 3.10.11 Humorous Heat Stuff

 One of the main storylines over the past week and a half of national sporting news has been that of the Miami Heat.  The Heat's repeated late game failures combined with a prolonged losing...

Nat'l Article on Cal's Recruiting

1

Nothing new was really written, but I felt that if a national media outlet decides to write a piece on Cal, I should support it, with the hopes of more to come. Yea, that should be more than one sentence, but I'm over it.

DBD Interesting Facts 2.2.2011

Well, it is too early to go to bed, but too late to start anything of substance, thus I'm bored right now.  I have since confronted this boredom by googling "interesting facts".  This link popped...

Most popular sports in America

NBA finishes fifth to the NFL, MLB, CFB and Autoracing. I found the dramatic decline from 1998 surprising (I knew there were some rough years, but never thought fandom was halved). I also wonder if the NBA's place among other professional sports merely peaked in '98 thus returning to its normal position, if this was lockout driven, or if there was another driving force.

Apparently, Texas is circumventing the conference it dominates to make a direct deal with ESPN to broadcast Texas sports. The contract is worth 12 million annually for the next 10 years, this money is in addition to the conference money potentially netting Texas 30 million dollars annually.

If BYU goes Independent, should the Pac-12 coordinate with them for Bowl Games

DBD 7.30.10: Pac-12 Basketball: Round Robin or Tournament?

Bidding war over the Pac-10’s TV rights is already developing

10

To sum up the article, ESPN, Fox, and potentially Comcast may be bidding, AND all three are willing to help the Pac-10 develop its own conference network. Of course, the author stating the conference windfall may approach ACC like money is a bit disconcerting as the ACC is not a financial juggernaut.
