    Ed O'Bannon trial

    Anyone else following this?

    Without going into my personal opinion, the trial has been fascinating so far. ESPN has been doing a live blog each day, that's worth reading if you have an interest in the case.

    bump. The NCAA presented their first witness today, women's AD from Texas. Very interesting stuff. Emails from Dan Beebe entered into evidence.

    Re: Ed O'Bannon trial

    I'm casually following it, and from what I gather the NCAA is taking a bit of an *** kicking.

    Re: Ed O'Bannon trial

    So... shouldn't the idea that only revenue generating sports are professional sports in the eyes of the prosecution make this an easy win for the NCAA? Seems kindof shady...

    yeah, the plaintiffs are doing a pretty good job, so far. Then again, the NCAA is just starting their defense, so we'll see.

    Re: Ed O'Bannon trial

    This trial is interesting to me. I do agree that students either shouldn't have their name/likeness used, or that they should be reimbursed if it is - otherwise it seems like the NCAA is the only one benefiting. It's inconvenient, as it's obviously a lot more fun to play an NCAA game when your favorite player is represented - but that's not really all that fair to the kids.

    Plonsky's opinions on student athletes exploiting the system are intriguing, to put it mildly.

    It was the judge's ruling to exclude those no revenue sports, I believe.

    yeah, the judge knocked it out, as well as any defense that uses Title IX.

    Agreed. The video games and jerseys are the biggest contradictions to the idea that athlete's likenesses can't be used for profit. Or is it just complete coincidence that, if I were to have walked into Scheels in Coralville last fall, I could have picked up an Iowa #44 jersey? Or #7 in 2011, or #12/#94 in 2010, #5 in 2006, etc.? Updating the numbers to reflect the team's current best players is how they keep those items flying off the racks. If they just used the same number every year, they couldn't possibly keep making money off of jersey sales every year.

    That seems to me like that would make the NCAA's position much harder to defend, not easier, as trombone suggested.

    Yep, I agree. Similar for ISU MBB - everyone wants to wear the current, most relevant jersey. If they only used, say, retired numbers, it would be a lot less relevant each year.

    You trying to tell me that an ISU 32 MBB jersey wouldn't fly off shelves?
