Hello from sunny Gainesville, Florida. I promise myself that I will take at least one trip to my alma mater (undergrad and law) per year. This weekend is it. The Florida Gators take on LSU Saturday night, which I predict will be a low scoring, defensive match-up. Hopefully my Gators come away with a victory. This week on FORBES: (1) Early FanDuel Investor Excitingly Forecasts Future Of Daily Fantasy Sports; (2) Finally An Alabama-Ole Miss Meeting That Actually Matters; (3) Jim McMahon And Jeremy Roenick Team Up To Create Concussion Awareness Organization; (4) WNBA Superstar Skylar Diggins Becomes BODYARMOR Endorser; and (5) NBC Sports Expands Presence In Daily Fantasy With RotoGrinders Partnership.
