CHARLOTTESVILLE — Andre Levrone lets you know he’s ready to play with the look on his face. Fellow wide receiver Doni Dowling? He’s more likely to tell you about it.

ESPN needs to be a better partner to the ACC, after Big 10 rights deal revealed.

Let’s just come out say it. Jim Delany is a genius when it comes to handling the Big 10′s media rights. More than 10 years ago, his vision led to the Big Ten Network. Now he’s managed to secure a deal with Fox that could be worth up $250 Million a year for 6 years for just half of the Big 10′s media rights that were up for grabs. Well respected College Football writer @DanWolken details how Delany one-upped his nearest competitor the SEC and the rest of the Power 5.

Bryan Kersey didn’t want to know when he’d referee his final college basketball game. He didn’t want the pressure, the emotion, the notoriety.

A federal judge Tuesday heard oral arguments that could shut the door on former UNC-Chapel Hill athletes’ claims that they were cheated out of an education – or that could allow their lawsuits to shine more light on a major academic scandal.
