NCAA board endorses more power for big schools (Yahoo Sports)
The NCAA's board of directors took the first step toward shifting power to the five largest football conferences on Thursday, endorsing a 57-page plan that calls for giving 65 of the nation's biggest schools more autonomy in how to fund scholarships, handle health care and decide other increasingly hot-button issues involving their athletes. If approved later this year, schools in the ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12 and SEC could implement some rules on their own and would get more voting power over legislation that would affect every NCAA member school. ''We (the big schools) have some issues we've got to deal with, but you've got to get a way to get the issues into the process,'' Purdue athletic director Morgan Burke said. NCAA President Mark Emmert this week suggested the changes within the NCAA will address some of the issues raised by those backing the unionization effort.

Nova left last Saturday's 16-1 loss at Tampa Bay in the fifth inning after allowing eight runs and eight hits, including four homers.
Kosar believes he's off TV for slurred speech (Yahoo Sports)
Former Browns quarterback Bernie Kosar believes he has been unfairly sacked as a TV broadcaster. Kosar has been removed as a color commentator for Cleveland's preseason games by the team. The Browns said Wednesday night he was being replaced by Solomon Wilcots, who will work with play-by-play announcer Jim Donovan. Kosar contends he's been removed because of slurred speech he attributes to ''a direct result of the many concussions I received while playing in the NFL.'' ''This is very unfortunate,'' he said in a statement, ''as I believe my football acumen and ability to describe what is happening on the field, has been well received by Cleveland Browns fans.'' WKYC-TV issued a statement disputing Kosar's assertions.
