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.

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.

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.
