He’s here for you.

I know we direct a fair amount of snark Tennessee’s way these days regarding the Fulmer-Pruitt relationship, but serious question here:  can anyone come up with another example besides Fulmer of an athletic director who’s been so willing to thrust himself into the media limelight over the direction of a program with a new head coach?

The transfer epidemic myth

You’ll be shocked, shocked to learn that players aren’t transferring in ever higher, record-setting numbers.

Then, again, it’s never been about the raw numbers for coaches, has it?

Look out, world.

The next gold rush begins.

How long do you think it’ll take before the NCAA cuts a deal to brand an official March Madness betting pool?  And for schools to partner with ESPN?  Can’t wait for PAWWWLLL! to host a sports book show on the SEC Network.

Brackets for everyone!

UPDATE #2:  The NCAA’s courageous statement in response to the Court’s ruling:

“Today the United States Supreme Court issued a clear decision that PASPA is unconstitutional, reversing the lower courts that held otherwise.  While we are still reviewing the decision to understand the overall implications to college sports, we will adjust sports wagering and championship policies to align with the direction from the court.”

– Donald Remy, NCAA chief legal officer

Okay, okay, “courageous” may have overstated things.
