NCAA Payments; All-Star Slump; And Coaches On Confederate Flags

onlyagame.wbur.org — Colleges could soon be bidding on football and men's basketballs recruits; the MLB All-Star Game received record-low ratings; and (some) SEC football coaches shared their thoughts on the Confederate flag. Patrick Hruby and Pat Forde join Bill Littlefield for this edition of "3 Stories You Should Know."

Why it's vital for the SEC to tackle talk of race, Confederate flag head-on

sports.yahoo.com — HOOVER, Ala. - If you want to see Southeastern Conference football coaches squirm like they're down three touchdowns in the fourth quarter, ask them about the Confederate flag. Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen issued 124 words in response to a question about the flag, which flies at the capitol of the state where he coaches - the presence of which prevents the state from hosting any NCAA or SEC championship events.

Nick Saban needs to stop making excuses and solve Alabama's real problems

sports.yahoo.com — HOOVER, Ala. - Poor Nick Saban. The sport of football keeps conspiring against him. You remember when the Alabama coach was dismayed by the accelerating pace of play brought on by no-huddle offenses. His objections were all about player safety, of course, and had nothing to do with Southeastern Conference Western Division opponents like Auburn and Texas A&M bringing an uncomfortable tempo into Saban's backyard.

Why Steve Spurrier couldn't retire, and why college football is better for it

sports.yahoo.com — HOOVER, Ala. - Steve Spurrier tacitly acknowledged Tuesday that he nearly hung it up at South Carolina after a disappointing 7-6 season in 2014. Thankfully for America and for sportswriter kind, the Head Ball Coach reconsidered and returned. To paraphrase Col. Nathan Jessup, we want Steve Spurrier at that podium.

Bo Ryan's departure will mean the end of an old-school era

sports.yahoo.com — Wisconsin announced Monday that Bo Ryan will retire in 2016, and that will pretty much mark the end of an era in college basketball. Ryan may well be the last guy to win big - really big - by building teams like it's still the 1970s.

sports.yahoo.com — The Kentucky basketball postseason media guide cover last March featured the following motto: "All for one goal." What the media guide didn't tell us was that the goal wasn't some silly national title. It wasn't a 40-0 season and a spot in college basketball history.
