Your O’Bannon update

At the New York Times, you’ll find a nice summary of where things stand with just a couple of days to go before the expiration of Judge Wilken’s delay in the order going into effect.

One thing worth reiterating is this:

After the three-week trial last summer in Oakland, Calif., Wilken found that the N.C.A.A.’s rules were illegal. This does not mean universities must share licensing money with players, only that the N.C.A.A. cannot prevent them from doing so.

If the appeals court doesn’t grant the stay the NCAA seeks, I figure Auburn will be out of the gate on this before the weekend is over.

  1. You point at Auburn and rightly so, Senator. But if that is the real direction college football is going to be taking Georgia needs to be out front (for once) instead of behind the curve like we always seem to be.

    More change coming… I can see recruits negotiating jersey numbers with fractions to protect their trademarked #. I wonder who will be the first 34.5 in the silver britches.

    Dear Daddy,

    After reading the NYT for the third time I need some guidance here.

    Who should I pull for in this thing? No matter what the court does it seems to me a hard rain is gonna fall.

    There is a lot of pressure on Auburn. What Alabama earns Auburn has to cheat to achieve. That brings on a lot of temptations to cut corners and outright cheat.
