Jun 7, 2010

The N.C. High School Athletic Association will meet on Tuesday with football coaches from the state about the proposed pod playoff system.

According to Rick Strunk, the associate executive director of the NCHSAA, the coaches are being asked to provide feedback, suggestions and ideas about the proposed system. Those ideas would then be brought to the Board of Directors for consideration.

At the spring meeting, the NCHSAA Board of Directors voted to change the current playoff system to a pod playoff system. The change would mean instead of dividing the playoffs into east and west divisions, they would be divided into east, mideast, midwest and west divisions. The goal of the system is to limit travel time and cost in the earlier rounds of hte playoffs.

The pod playoff system is expected to be implemented in time for the 2010 playoffs which start in November.

At the same meeting last month, the NCHSAA voted to change the length of football season from 12 weeks to

Judge allows limits on Web coverage of Wis. sports

Jun 5, 2010

MADISON, WIS. — The Wisconsin school athletic association has the right to limit who carries games live on the Internet, a judge ruled Thursday.

U.S. District Judge William Conley ruled that the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association's exclusive agreement with the video production company When We Were Young Productions doesn't stifle media freedom.

In a 51-page decision, Conley noted that media outlets can stream games not produced by When We Were Young Productions for a fee. As for games the company does stream, media outlets can still publish stories, offer opinions and offer limited live coverage, the judge said.

"Ultimately, this is a case about commerce, not the right to a free press," Conley wrote.

The ruling came in a lawsuit between the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association and The Appleton Post-Crescent newspaper, its parent company, Gannett Co., and the Wisconsin Newspaper Association. The sports association

College athletes on verge of key victory in Calif

Jun 5, 2010

LOS ANGELES — Led by a former UCLA linebacker, college athletes are demanding more from their schools in exchange for the long hours they put in and are poised for perhaps their biggest victory yet.

On Wednesday, the California Assembly passed a sweeping proposal that calls for schools to provide recruits a written summary of their schools' policies on everything from medical insurance limits to athlete transfer rates and scholarship renewals, all within a week of contact. The Student-Athletes' Right to Know Act now heads to the state Senate.

The legislation is backed by the National College Players Association, a Los Angeles-based organization headed by former Bruin Ramogi Huma that has grown to 14,000 members, thanks to the rise of social media and an Internet-driven recruitment strategy. About half the members are current athletes, representing 150 Division I programs.

Their activism cuts to the core of a debate that has roiled college sports

Patrick Turner has been named the next head football coach of Harnett Central. The announcement came at a Friday afternoon press conference.

Turner said he's going to change some things, like the uniforms (from black to cardinal and gold), but keep others the same. The playbook terminology, for instance, should remain mostly intact.

One thing is for sure, Turner doesn't plan on taking it easy on any of his team's future opponents.

"If I can score 90," Turner said at Friday afternoon's introductory press conference, "I'm going to score 90. I'm not going to call the dogs off."

The Fuquay-Varina grad, who was at this year's 4-A state championship game when the Trojans lost to A.C. Reynolds, already has experience coaching several of Harnett Central's best players. Turner coached star signal-caller Brian Taylor and standout running back Jarrod Spears when they were on the school's junior varsity team freshman year.

Last week, Trojans Athletic
