One thing I am growing to get more involved with tracking is sabremetrics in baseball. I am far from having a full grasp of everything but I like to think I know more today than I did at this point last season.

Mark Emmert has had a bad year. As Penn State mourned Tuesday its one-year anniversary of unprecedented sanctions handed down by NCAA President Emmert and the NCAA, Emmert has seen his prestige and authority plummet.
