I am in Detroit today to moderate a question-and-answer session with the President and Chief Operating Officer of NASCAR.  It is my first time in the city.  Back to (sometimes) sunny South Florida tomorrow.  After three fantastic years of teaching Sports Agency Management at Indiana University Bloomington (where I created the course) I am finally calling it quits in favor of focusing my efforts on continuing to expand my existing businesses and find new exciting opportunities.  I am not necessarily out of teaching forever.  Perhaps some updates on that end in the future.  This week on FORBES: (1) Energy Ice Bar Partners With Army Athletics; (2) NCAA Loses Ed O’Bannon Case Along With Theory Of Amateurism; (3) Performance Apparel Brand ATHOS Secures $12.2 Million In Series B Funding; and (4) Daily Fantasy Sports Expands With USA Today Joining The Party.  The sports betting season kicks into high gear in September with the start of the NFL season.
