Sports Links for Reading – July 28, 2010


I will be working on a few projects today, which will keep me from writing up a longer entry.  Here are several links that I found that will peak your interest today.

San Diego Union Tribune (Chris Jenkins):  Dave Roberts, the man who saved the Boston Red Sox from being eliminated by the New York Yankees, and helped the Sox win the World Series in 2004, is battling lymphoma.

The Wiz of Odds:  The Football Writers Association of America is seriously considering ripping USC of it’s 2004 national title and giving it to Auburn.  USC and Auburn finished undefeated, but USC ended up playing Oklahoma for the BCS title, due to the Tigers cream-puff non-conference schedule.  Utah also finished undefeated but was shut out completely since the Mountain West is a non-BCS league.

Ron Prince

Sports Law Blog (Michael McCann and Rick Karcher):  Kansas State thought that getting rid of former football coach Ron Prince (right) was an easy chore.  Come to find out, it’s a lot more convoluted than anyone would imagine.

Joe Ponanski:  Amid the fallout of Mitch Albom receiving the ASPE Red Smith award, Ponanski weighs in his opinion of the criticism (justified and over the line) of Albom.
