UNC Football Players Select Their Agents For The 2011 Draft

On September 16, 2010, I researched and provided some facts regarding Chris Hawkins’ background.  He was responsible for purchasing A.J. Green’s jersey for $1,000, which set the Georgia wide-receiver back four games at the beginning of the 2010 season.  But that’s not the end of his connections to student-athletes.  Hawkins played college ball at the […]

Case Study: Karsten Whitson’s Decision Not To Sign With The Padres

The NCAA requires that a player selected in the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft pay his advisor at his or her normal rate for such services if the player hopes to maintain his eligibility at an NCAA school.  Thus, if Troy Caradonna of SFX was to follow that rule, which many people say goes ignored […]

An MLB Where Draft Picks Could Be Traded

It is usually not until later in the year that the discussion surrounding baseball’s inequity bubbles in the minds of writers.  We all know about the huge disparity between the payroll of the New York Yankees and the Florida Marlins, yet the Marlins were able to fight off Goliath in the 2003 World Series. That […]

The Endless Debate: Major Juniors or NCAA?

Big decisions loom for 16 year old elite hockey players. I’m not talking about the typical issues for teenagers like “what should I wear to the homecoming dance,” “how am I going to pass my driving test,” or “what should I do this weekend?” Instead, many elite hockey players at that age have to decide […]

Akron Pro Day Wrap-Up

Kevin Grant and Andrew Johnson entered Akron’s Pro Day with a chip on their shoulders. They went onto Akron’s field with something to prove. Both steller athletes were getting the cold shoulder from many draft analysts, and many believe it is because they played in the MAC Conference. Kevin showed power in his workout (bench, […]
