In the most strange story of 2009 (so far), Boston College is readying to formally fire its head football coach Jeff Jagodzinski for interviewing with the New York Jets.
I believe it's the first time two teams with over $100 million athletic budgets played each other. Texas has an athletic department budget of $101 million, while Ohio State's falls at $115.4 million. No other college football team in the nation tops the $100 million mark.
This morning, NBA commissioner David Stern rang the Opening Bell as part of the 30-year anniversary of U.S.-China diplomatic relations. I caught up with Stern at the New York Stock Exchange.
It's been a rough go for Red Sox owner John Henry, as the team winning championships in 2004 and 2007 might have been the only thing that kept him sane.
It's not Sports Biz per se, but it is memorabilia, which I love to cover. You've seen the Enron, Bear Stearns and Lehman Brothers memorabilia pop up after their disintegration, but since it was a much smaller shop, Madoff memorabilia is much harder to get.
In an interview with NBA-TV, Warren Buffett says his friend LeBron James has his head "screwed on right." Buffett talks about the basketball star's business "instinct" at a young age.
I got tons of reaction—over 100 e-mails—to my salary cap argument. Here's the best of the best.
Tonight is the Chick-Fil-A Bowl. I'm sure it will be a good one between Georgia Tech and the LSU Tigers. But the reason I'm writing about this is because, in a world where so many sponsorships don't make sense, this one is probably among the best I've ever seen. Here are five things the sports marketing world can learn from Chick-Fil-A's sponsorship of this bowl game.
Tomorrow afternoon will be the one day of the year I will be watching hockey as the Chicago Blackhawks and the Detroit Red Wings play outside at Wrigley Field. The Bridgestone Winter Classic is the talk of the town and hockey outdoors has actually managed to get some big-time buzz. This morning, I spoke with NHL commissioner Gary Bettman about the game.
Superagent Scott Boras has made waves again this offseason as the agent of Mark Teixeira. He's also still negotiating for Derek Lowe and Manny Ramirez, among others. This morning on "Squawk Box," I sat down with Boras for a wide-ranging interview.
Every once in a while, I like to pose a question to my readers. Today, we're doing a little choose-your-own-adventure with the New York Jets, who fired their head coach Eric Mangini this morning, after the team failed to make the playoffs following yesterday's loss.
In August, Arkansas businessman John Rogers bought one of the famous Honus Wagner cards for $1.62 million. It was only months ago and the economy certainly hasn't made things better. So we were confused when Rogers put it up for sale on eBay...
We all know the New England Patriots would have been plenty marketable if they had beaten the New York Giants in the Super Bowl and became the first team since the 1972 Miami Dolphins to go undefeated. But how about the Detroit Lions, who on Sunday could become the first team to go 0-for-season since the 1976 Tampa Bay Buccaneers?
ESPN is reporting that the New York Yankees have signed free agent first baseman Mark Teixeira. Add up Teixeira's contract with the offseason signings of A.J. Burnett and C.C. Sabathia and you have $423.5 million in guaranteed contracts.
It's time to have some fun. Here's my top 10 list of what the New York Yankees could buy with the $423.5 million they paid for C.C. Sabathia, A.J. Burnett and Mark Teixeira. Please note, it's not all of these.
It’s one of the great stories of the week. The last colorway of Air Jordan XX3’s getting into consumers hands this morning. Only 23 pairs released in each of 23 stores (529 total) in 23 stores around the country. One of the most hyped shoes ever.
Last week, we showed you the holiday e-cards from the NFL and Major League Baseball. But today, we'll show you what we think is the best of what's out there.
We're through with the first five college bowl games and I think it's worth mentioning that bowl game attendance is down considerably so far. It's not exactly an apples-to-apples comparison, but it's still worth noting.
When you are a leader in a certain sector and a competitor is coming after you, what do you do? You're supposed to just continue being who you were before the No. 2 was breathing down your neck.
