The human tragedy that's become the Penn State University child molestation scandal is forcing some high school students to think twice about attending the college—and whether a PSU diploma still has value.
Last night, Deadspin posted what it said was five years of NCAA financials that had been mistakenly posted on its Web site. I figured you didn't want to review them all, so I did it for you. For its part, an NCAA spokesman did not respond to an e-mail questioning the veracity of the documents, but they certainly look like they were really audited by KPMG & Deloitte.

Among the many sports management institutions, The University of Massachusetts is making a heck of a run to be known as the best program in the land. A donation from the family of the late IMG founder Mark H. McCormack not only has armed the school with McCormack's collection of over 1,500 boxes of contracts and notes, but has also endowed an Executive-in-Residence program.

With the presidential election less than a year away, the folks at running shoe brand Asics have to be on edge.
The argument has been made every year: Joe Paterno should step down for the future of Penn State football. But for every bad year, as the hot seat got hotter, JoePa seemingly came back with a better season. But, after the sexual assault scandal, there's no argument to be made that things will get better for Paterno. His great contribution to the school in time and financially, perhaps more than any coach has done in history, no longer applies.
Historically collectors have remained underground, afraid that showing an interest in the world of sex would bring shame and mockery, but as porn becomes more mainstream more people are comfortable owning a part of its history.
In the last four days, Penn State officials have been getting crushed by the media and by fans for their handling of charges of sexual assault allegations that inexplicably reached a dead end without being reported.

Early this morning, Major League Baseball and Frank McCourt issued a joint statement saying that they agreed to recommend to the bankruptcy court to hold an auction for the sale of the Dodgers. When prospective owners are bandied about, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban comes up first, because he's a fan's owner and he has the cash.

However long they were married, the price of breaking the contract was huge -- sometimes even reached nine figures.

After a marathon bargaining session yesterday that ended in the wee morning hours, NBA commissioner David Stern and union president Derek Fisher emerged with a cautiously optimistic outlook. One of the reasons why is because the players get their last check on Monday and, suffice it to say, there's quite a few that need those checks to arrive in the near future.
