NCAA to appeal the O'Bannon ruling

+

"While agreeing w/ cost of attendance, NCAA disagrees our rules violate antitrust laws & will appeal O'Bannon ruling."

That quote comes from the NCAA's Twitter account, as the organization announced that it will be appealing the historic ruling that was made by the District Court a short while ago. You can find the full press release from Donald Remy, the NCAA chief legal officer here: https://www.ncaa.org/about/resources/media-center/press-releases/ncaa-will-appeal-o%E2%80%99bannon-ruling

Storm Johnson on a 3-yard TD run. #UCF 35, Akron 0 at halftime. Urban Meyer developing chronic case of NoTebow-itis!

Twitter feed of Orlando Sentinel resident fairweather blowhard and USF conspiracy theorist Mike Bianchi. UCF up 35-0 on Akron at the half. He thinks UCF has a chance against Ohio State. I'll believe it when I see it. This IS Akron, after all. UCF hasn't opened against an FBS team (though again, it's Akron) since 2007, when they shocked NC State, 25-23.

"The slap-hitter known as the Big East hit the shot heard around college athletics."

"The slap-hitter known as the Big East hit the shot heard around college athletics." That quote comes Dennis Dodd of CBS Sports on the news of the Big East hiring CBS Vice President of College Sports Programming Mike Aresco to be its new commissioner. Dodd's full report on the hiring can be found here and should be encouraging (for the most part) to fans of Big East schools.

"For Louisville, they don't have to go through the wear and tear that we go through week to week. So this is a big game for them, because it's a non-conference game, it'll be competitive for them. So they'll end the season whatever and a couple losses. They just don't play the schedule we play, so it's a big game for them, for that reason. It's a quality non-conference opponent." This quote is from quarterback Morgan Newton from a video interview he did with Cats Illustrated here. It's been a fun summer of trash talk between the two schools in interviews and social media. Newton just threw another log on the fire.

John is a tireless worker and for so many years, his time and energy have been consumed by working to make our league better for all of its membership. We at the University of Louisville are indebted to John for his efforts in navigating our university’s move to the BIG EAST Conference. He is a true gentleman in every sense of the word and has terrific character and integrity. John is a good friend, we have appreciated our association with him and we wish him the very best.

Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich on the resignation of Big East Commissioner John Marinatto. The quote was provided by Louisville Courier-Journal columnist Eric Crawford and was originally posted here.

"I'll look at it, figure it out," Izzo said. "(It's) something for me to put in my computer and say, you know what, 'We've kind of played everybody.' Now, you know what, We (really) have played everybody. That was a new team for me. We haven't played anybody who brought that kind of pressure in a zone. "It is a hard thing to simulate. I keep going back to that. That was our biggest problem."

Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo on Louisville's "zone" defense and how it was able to force more turnovers (15) than made field goals (14).

In accordance with NCAA regulations, it is the University's practice to self-report possible violations to the NCAA. We self-reported issues with drug testing to the NCAA, and there is currently an ongoing inquiry. The inquiry does not involve any current SU student-athletes. To ensure the integrity of the ongoing process, we are unable to comment further at this time.

Statement issued by Syracuse University today in response to the Yahoo Sports report from Charles Robinson and Pat Forde concerning inconsistent applications of the school's drug testing policy to basketball players.
