The End of the NCAA Illusion

Friday 20:57 GMT

Whatever fairy dust the NCAA used to sprinkle over the college game—a blend of nostalgia, regional pride, and, most of all, amateurism—doesn’t work anymore.

Instead, a lot of us are still trying to figure out what the government is doing here—what it’s attempting to prove, why it’s playing strongman for the NCAA. Technically, this is a fraud case: a jury must decide if NCAA member universities were victims, helplessly defrauded by rogue types steering elite players to their campuses.

Serena Williams coach advocates change in rules after US Open controversy

Friday 20:02 GMT

Patrick Mouratoglou, who admitted he used hand signals to try to help Williams during her controversial loss in this year’s US Open final, posted a statement to Twitter on Thursday saying that coaching would let “viewers enjoy it as a show” and “ensure that it remains pivotal in the sport.”

Debate around on-court coaching was sparked when chair umpire Carlos Ramos gave Williams a code violation after Mouratoglou gestured in her direction during her loss to Naomi Osaka at the US Open in September.

Bundesliga preview: Faltering Bayern Munich look to steady the ship at Wolfsburg

Friday 20:02 GMT

Bayern Munich travel to Wolfsburg in search of their first Bundesliga win in four as Niko Kovac starts to feel the heat.

"When Bayern have a spell like they're currently having, some people say 'it's now or never', but you can't forget that Bayern have unbelievable quality and probably have the best squad in the Bundesliga," Ginczek said. The Wolves had a promising start to the season under Bruno Labbadia, but have gone five league games without a win, having failed to record a victory since Matchday 2. Labbadia has lost 12 of his 13 career games against Bayern, and Wolfsburg forward Daniel Ginczek is not underestimating the visitors' quality.
