Cav defense loses two players

The questions surrounding the Virginia football team's defense just became more numerous. Two members of the defense who probably would have earned starting roles failed to academically qualify for the upcoming year.

It's not a matter of Ellis not wanting to.

Minimum age rule offers no help to NCAA

NBA Commissioner David Stern's new great idea to fix all that ails the basketball world also happens to be a bad one, full of the illogical reasoning of a man who's been on top too long to remember how he got there.
