Today I am traveling south to guest lecture in Professor Peter Carfagna’s Sports Law class at the University of Miami Law School. The Harvard Law professor who teaches this class for two weeks wants me to discuss NCAA Amateurism Issues and Agent Regulation Statutes and Rules. That seems manageable. Next week, I am off to Oregon Law to be the Keynote Speaker at its Sports and Entertainment event. You can always check me out on Forbes and Inc.
