The regents, as expected, did not take any action but the chair said if they blocked UCLA's move, “it would be a big deal. There would be a lot of people happy and a lot of people upset.” No matter what the regents do, he said, there could be legal action.

Among the other reasons Kliavkoff cited that for it being a bad deal financially is that the Bruins' travel costs could nearly triple -- to $27 million -- if the school chartered flights to Big Ten schools for all teams, not just football and men's and women's basketball.

We've heard from many members of @NYTimesGuild who feel that all-hands meetings at @nytimes are less of a place where management talks with us and more one where they talk about us, to each other.

More than 850 of us from @NYTimesGuild , 60% of our unit, are joining together in solidarity for this action. Instead of free lunch boxes or dictates about where we have to work, we want respect and a fair contract.

Lincoln Riley has rebuilt U.S.C.'s roster via college football's free agency, aka the transfer portal. But it's not for everybody. "We have a different approach than our opponents today," Stanford's David Shaw said. We’ll never have 20 guys transfer in."

“This school is too great in so many other areas for this to be the black eye of this university.” On Florida A&M, where football eligibility snafus were just the latest case of administrative dysfunction.
