Depends on whose antitrust ox is gored.

From the Alston trial, currently in its fifth day, comes this observation from the Chancellor of the University of Wisconsin:

I doubt coaches are paying much attention now, but if the day ever comes when the NCAA openly and actively lobbies for that antitrust exemption, it’ll sure be amusing to watch the light go on.

    NCAA Attorney after the break: “Your honor…permission to treat this witness as hostile?”

    A question I have for Ms. Blank: If you cut the coaches salaries, will you cut the spending on new administrative buildings, travel, etc. you and your non-faculty brethren enjoy and lower tuition costs?

    I didn’t think so.

    Labor working for barter. Coaches working under cap rules. Media rights negotiated on the free market.

    That should be the NCAA’s new slogan.
