We're Expanding: Satellite Camp in Indy Will Also Feature U-M's Coaches in Lacrosse, Volleyball, Cheer
Jim Harbaugh doesn't just want to steal your football recruits. He wants all your recruits for all your sports.
The AD from Indianapolis Bishop Chatard was on WTKA this morning, and he told Sam that in addition to Harbaugh and his guys, the June 1 satellite camp at his school will feature Michigan's cheerleading, volleyball and men's and women's lacrosse coaches, too.
Your move, Hugh Freeze.
The next wave of lawsuits are being filed, except this time it is more than just the NCAA, and includes conferences and universities as well. This IS a big deal and has potential to be very problematic, particularly if conferences and individual schools are held liable.
Former college football players at Penn State, Auburn, Georgia, Oregon, Utah and Vanderbilt are suing the NCAA, their former conference and -- in some instances -- their former school over how their concussions were treated.
Six class-action lawsuits filed Tuesday represent the start of the next wave of concussion litigation in college sports, even as the NCAA finalizes a $75 million settlement from a different lawsuit related to concussions. Chicago attorney Jay Edelson, who is leading this latest effort to sue the NCAA, said 40 to 50 class-action lawsuits will eventually get filed on behalf of tens of thousands of ex-football players.
"The goal of the suits is to get people who are injured financial compensation -- something that hasn't happened as of yet," Edelson said.
A federal judge in Illinois gave preliminary approval in January to the NCAA's settlement from a 2011 lawsuit brought by former Eastern Illinois football player Adrian Arrington over how the association handled concussions. The judge had one significant caveat: Athletes could still sue their university, conference and the NCAA as a class under certain terms, meaning the NCAA didn't receive the blanket immunity it sought.
Jake Butt listed at #1 TE (duh) but has Mason Cole as the #1 underclassman center without ever playing a snap at the position in a game I believe. That's pretty high praise even given the Mel Kiper grain of salt. I'm excited to see how it turns out.
....Of course what he fails to mention is how Mason is not NFL ready yet and will need another year of seasoning before going pro *wink wink*
Texas Tech QB Davis Webb transfers to Cal backing out of his pledge to transfer to Colorado after signing a financial aid agreement several months ago. Colorado QB Sefo Liufau is dealing with a Lisfranc injury and may miss 2016 as well. Michigan's 2016 nonconference got even lighter if that were even possible.
