I was at the American Airlines Arena last night to watch the Miami Heat take on a San Antonio Spurs team that dressed only nine players (Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and others failed to even make the trip). While it was a pretty boring game throughout, I was happy to see a Heat win. I am more interested to see what kind of sanctions Commissioner David Stern levies on the Spurs after making threats to do same last night. The Miami Dolphins still have a chance to make the playoffs? They will have to beat the New England Patriots this week. That could be a fun game to watch. This week on Forbes, I wrote: (1) Coaching Carousel Sheds Light On Systemic Failure In College Athletics Management; and (2) ACC Seeks Exit Fee In Lawsuit Filed Against The University of Maryland. And football agent Eugene Lee contributed an op-ed: Fixing The College Football Bowl Championship Series. Here are some stories I failed to cover:
