’96. You tackle now-NFL fullback Heath Evans nine times in your final high school football game.  We’ll start with that — he’s SEC.  You tackle Heath Evans, and he kips-up and says “Awesome tackle, man!” every time you hit him and it really sounds sincere, and then he bounces back to his huddle and stares… Read more »

The Pac 12’s Business Model Will Change College Athletics

(Note: our sports business writer’s employee would not appreciate him writing for this site. That is understandable since he works in the industry.
