Mark Emmert, ADs Discuss “A Lot of Change” on the Horizon (USA Today)

Inside a conference room Monday near the Dallas-Fort Worth airport, NCAA president Mark Emmert laid out a timeline for what are expected to be massive changes in the governance of college athletics. In a speech to the Faculty Athletics Representatives of the so-called “1A” organization, which encompasses schools in the top-level Football Bowl Subdivision, Emmert suggested that a new model for Division 1 could emerge…

Tyler Boyd Leads ACC Youth Movement (ESPN’s ACC Blog)

True freshman receiver Tyler Boyd had one clear objective when he arrived at Pitt.  He wanted to make a statement. Boyd had no intentions of redshirting. Not at all. So he went about practice to make one play after another, to impress his coaches enough to not only earn some reps in games — but also to win a starting job…

Hello NCAA?! Miami Still Waiting… (State of the U)

What I do know for certain, though, is a win is a win…

Hi, I’m Sean and I’m a Cautiously-Optimistic Syracuse Orange Football Fan. (“Hi, Sean.”) It’s been six days since I was pessimistic about Syracuse Orange football. Six days since I assumed the Orange weren’t nearly as good as they looked against Wagner. Six days since I said SU would win but it wouldn’t be in any kind of convincing fashion. Six days since I feared the worst…

Boston College Football: Defining Our Dudedom (BC Interruption)

Ever since taking over last year, Brad Bates has worked tirelessly to ensure the very best potential for the Boston College athletics program. Paramount at the top of that list is the football program, the flagship athletics team for his department and this school. He’s focused his efforts in not only fixing what was a broken system on the field but also develop an outreach to make sure his major source of revenue – the fans – felt welcome…
