N.C.A.A. May Let Its Top Conferences Play by Their Own Rules

3

Well, this should make things interesting: "The universities with the country’s most prominent athletics programs are expected to gain preliminary approval Thursday to break away from some of the strictures of the N.C.A.A., a significant change that would give them more freedom to govern themselves and could allow athletes to share in the wealth of college sports. "Under the proposal, the N.C.A.A. would clear the way for sports powerhouses like Alabama and Ohio State to pay their athletes a few thousand dollars more than what the current scholarship rules allow, loosen restrictions against agents and advisers, and revamp recruiting rules to ease contact with top prospects." "N.C.A.A. May Let Its Top Conferences Play by Their Own Rules," August 5, 2014, Marc Tracy, NYT

Craig Loston "looks faster."

Craig Loston, SS (6-0 1/2, 213) — Loston had a 32-inch vertical jump and then stood on the rest of his numbers from the combine. He had a very good day working out. The most notable thing about Loston between the Senior Bowl and LSU’s pro day was that he cut his hair. He looked sharp and quicker with his hair cut.Loston likely improved his draft position, and probably has a chance to get picked sometime between the bottom half of the second round to the early portion of the third round.
