NYT article on the popularity of high school alumni football:
Have any readers participated in this sort of thing?
Couldn't help thinking of this guy when reading the article:
From a SB Tribune story...
The investigation ordered by Notre Dame was limited to the electronic search, Brown said. Investigators did not interview Te’o or his family, nor did anyone attempt to contact Ronaiah Tuiasosopo or any of his relatives.
In response to questions, university officials said the investigators did not examine cell phone records, e-mails or other electronic communication to determine the length or extent of Te’o’s
communication over the past few years with the person claiming to be Lennay Kekua, nor did the university ask Te’o to take a lie detector test.
From The Detroit News:
The photographer who snapped Desmond Howard's iconic Heisman Trophy pose has sued the former University of Michigan and National Football League star, along with several other companies, for copyright infringement.
Masck says he's been cheated of the notoriety and money from taking the shot. Masck was working on a freelance assignment when he took the photograph.
"My client tried for a long time to suppress his disappointment and for not being recognized," said his attorney, Thomas Blaske. "(Masck) wants a permanent injunction against the misuse of his picture and wants their profits. But even of a higher priority to Brian Masck, he wants credit. … It's no different than any artist."
So the NCAA has passed a bunch of new recruiting bylaws including one that does this:
So starting with the class of 2014, college coaches can call, text and communicate privately by any methods available without restrictions. No more one-call-per-week. No more dead periods. No more ban on text messaging.
Still on the table and awaiting a decision is this potential new rule:
If 13-2 passes in April, prospects in their junior years can expect up to six visits per institution at home and school from coaches during the contact period, just as seniors experience.
This will only make recruiting even more insane and more competitive, because in addition to all of this you can have coaches that are not full-time staff members make calls for you too, and there are no longer limitations on the number of coaches that can be on the road recruiting.
Essentially, recruiting has been deregulated. So...as a school with a large budget, do you think this good for Michigan? Or will the "we play nice in the Big Ten" culture hurt us? We already know the SEC will go nuts with these rules...
