Horns_bullet_medium Cameron Rupp was named a finalist for the 2010 Johnny Bench Award.

 

Horns_bullet_medium  Who are the best offensive coordinators in college football?

 

Horns_bullet_mediumWill conference expansion move the BCS closer to a playoff

Delany was asked: What should be the role of the NCAA in regulating some of the commercial issues in college sports?

I’m paraphrasing his answer but essentially Delany’s response was that the NCAA really doesn’t have a role in this regard. That’s because the schools and the conferences should control and benefit directly from the revenue they generate. The NCAA is not there to spread the wealth: “No one questions that Harvard or Texas have a (big) endowment and don’t share it with Hofstra and South Alabama.”

And then Delany said this. Read this very carefully:

“But intercollegiate athletics is sort of unique in that institutions that have certain advantages—based on demographics or history or tradition or fan base—somehow are seen as the sources of resources for others that do not. I don’t think that’s going to happen anytime soon, but there’s certainly a lot of gnashing of teeth, like why doesn’t the Rose Bowl spread its revenue around to Boise State?”

 

Horns_bullet_mediumThe Land Thieves are at it again.

Oklahoma's athletic department has found itself in an unwanted situation that's all too familiar: shipping a basketball coach's phone records to NCAA investigators.

The university acknowledged Wednesday that it was investigating phone calls made by former basketball assistant Oronde Taliaferro to determine whether he had committed any NCAA violations. In a statement, the school indicated that Taliaferro had made calls to a Merrill Lynch representative in Florida and the content of those calls was under review.

 

Horns_bullet_mediumAll Big 10 expansion, all the time.

 

Horns_bullet_medium Everyone wants their own network.

"There's a lot of jealousy," Fitzgerald said. "We've got our own network, and [each school] has got one-eleventh of it. Instead of having to worry about NBA, NFL, NHL and Major League Baseball, it's just a [network] that covers just our universities.

"So it's a huge asset to us. Huge."

It's an asset that makes the Big Ten appealing to outsiders, who might have a chance to join the league in the coming months.

But does the Big 10 Network have great programming like this? I didn't think so.

 

Horns_bullet_mediumMaybe that Longhorn Network isn't too far off?

 

Horns_bullet_mediumThe NCAA did something right for a change.

The NCAA bent its own rule book a variety of ways in an effort to help the Texas A&M athletics department help the family of the late Tobi Oyedeji.

Oyedeji, who was a forward at Bellaire High School, passed away Sunday following injuries he suffered in a car accident.
