Former #1 NBA draft pick Greg Oden has been arrested for allegedly punching a woman in the face. And at ESPN presume they already duct-taped Stephen A. Smith’s mouth?

-

The NCAA Division I board of directors today voted to allow the 65 schools in the top five conferences to write many of their own rules. Uh,haven’t those schools been doing that for decades?
