Sports Illustrated has its Oklahoma State story, Yahoo! Sports has its Southeastern Conference story.  Those two beasts alone are enough to make your eyes tired.  The idea of amateurism also is enough to exhaust you — don’t even try to justify the claim that it is a relevant concept in today’s day-and-age.  I hope all the Jewish readers have an easy fast this Yom Kippur and are ready to put together a successful conclusion to the 2013 calendar year.  This week on FORBES: (1) Film Featuring Ed O’Bannon, Arian Foster And Jay Bilas Makes One Wonder: Is The NCAA Finally Facing 4th And Long?; (2) How BioSteel Sports Supplements Has Quietly Infiltrated The Athlete Nutrition Market; (3) Will CFL General Manager Be Disciplined For Publicly Disrespecting One Of His Players?; (4) Live Sports Companion Rolls Out New Android App Designed For Tablets; and (5) R.I.P. NCAA Amateurism: The Student-Athlete Is Dead.  And as always, the weekly wrap-up:
