  • NFL Generating More Money From Super Bowl Tickets Thursday, 20 Jan 2011 | 4:51 PM ET

    With an event that almost always sees ticket prices that at least double the face value, I often wondered why the NFL didn't increase its ticket prices for the Super Bowl. After all, it's not like there would be much of a public backlash. It's hard to put up an argument when the average price of tickets jump to three or four times face once the two teams are set.

  • Is College Or Pro Safer For Harbaugh? Tuesday, 4 Jan 2011 | 4:56 PM ET
    Jim Harbaugh

    Stanford Jim Harbaugh has a choice. Should he stay coaching the college game or should he leap to the NFL? If he stays at Stanford, he obviously has built up more goodwill there and therefore can afford a few lean years, but that’s the exception.

  • Jim Harbaugh

    What is a coach worth? Well, the answer is whatever it takes to get him. And if that person is Jim Harbaugh, that’s a lot of money. Harbaugh will coach what is likely his last game with Stanford tonight at the Orange Bowl against Virginia Tech. And while top coaches have had three or four teams pull them in various directions, Harbaugh really has a perfect storm going.
