BETTER LATE THAN NEVER. The BIG EAST has just filed a suit against TCU for exiting the conference without paying the $5m exit fee (or playing a game).
UCONN'T TOUCH THIS. A female NBA employee is suing UCONN Women's coach Geno Auriemma for making unwanted advances towards her on a 2009 Team USA trip. She claims Auriemma tried to blackball her career when she said no.
KEEPING ON THE TOPIC OF LEGAL TROUBLES. A sad weekend near Auburn University as two former football players were shot and killed. Two suspects have been arrested, one remains at large.
COLLEGE FOOTBALL'S NEW HIRES. Sporting News ranked the Top 7 new head coaches by their chances of success in their first year. Paul Chryst came in at #7. Todd Graham did not make the list, but Charlie Weis came in 3rd. I guess they rate success in Kansas by ones ability to eat a 96oz. steak in a single sitting.
AND THE SEARCH BEGINS. The BIG EAST has hired a search firm to find their next commissioner. Talk about a fun job...not only will the new commish have to find balance between basketball only schools and football/basketball schools, but also football only schools...across three time zones.
SO NOT COOL. Our friends over at the Card Chronicle are running a bracket for "The 2011-12 Least Cool Person Tournament." The current matchup places local Louisville newspaper The Courier-Journal against Pitt Chancellor Mark Nordenberg. Hey, it's not his fault you guys didn't accept that ESPN TV Contract. Oh wait...
