A new antitrust lawsuit brought by 10 former college football and men's basketball players against many television networks, conferences and licensing entities represents the next legal maneuver to spawn from the Ed O'Bannon trial. The latest focus: Go after television broadcasts' use of athletes' names and images.
Sue sue sue.

That dadgummed media!!!!
The Michigan football team has plenty to brag about with its defense. That is, until it allowed 476 yards in a meltdown against Rutgers.
How long is Michigan going to let this go on?
PSU plays at the Big House, and though Michigan just lost to Rutgers, they're not as bad as that record indicates...or maybe the Nittany Lions just aren't that good.
Maybe this weekend? If Michigan loses to Penn State, they'll be 2-5 and 0-3 in the Big Ten.
There's little sign of anything going to turn around. This has to be the case of Dave Brandon trying to keep his job by keeping Hoke around as long as possible. Perhaps they're negotiating a buy out. Perhaps they're hoping for a miracle.
Any more, though, and Michigan will miss a bowl game. Maybe no one cares anymore.
Seriously, it's starting to freak us out.
More hilarity from BGHP.
My unsolicited two cents: the players truthfully don't know who'll start at QB vs. Illinois, and the coaches likely don't either.
Wisconsin. Still confused?
Is the program at its lowest depth ever? Can one person -- specifically, a new head coach -- change everything or will it take a coordinated effort ranging from administration to fans in order make the football relevant again?
I have no idea how you solve this.
Hate to admit it, but I've watched about a half hour of the NFL this year. That last Thursday Packers-Vikings game doesn't count. Wasn't much of a game.
Nebraska's inability to produce offensively during the first three quarters against Michigan State had nothing to do with the game plan, coach Bo Pelini said Wednesday.
No one asked him why he punted from Michigan State's 30?
I don't disagree with Pelini that the execution was a fundamental problem. I don't think anyone reasonably can, but the game plan appeared to be so conservative, I was a little confused.
It’s like Tim Beck got beat up for being him, then did what everyone wanted, found success, and can’t be him again.— CornNation (@CornNation) October 5, 2014
My reaction right after the game was wondering why Nebraska didn't start slinging the ball all over earlier, but as I've gone back I don't think Beck called a bad game (other than the aforementioned punting). We just flat out didn't execute, anywhere.
Yea, I know. We should move on now.
