Rutgers Sues Big East for Millions, waiver of fees/ notice of departure

"Upon information and belief, the new withdrawal fee of $10 million arbitrarily applies to some, but not all, of the Big East football schools, and the effect is to penalize certain members if they seek to withdraw," the complaint states. Rutgers claims that none of the other schools that left the conference were held to the 27-month/$5 million fee standard. "Moreover, the Big East's excusal of noncompliance by Syracuse, Pittsburgh, TCU, and WVU with the 27 month notice provision of the Bylaws constitutes a waiver of this same provision with respect to Rutgers," the complaint states.

Rothstein: 20 Under-The-Radar 2012-13 Freshmen

Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports and WFAN says St. John's freshman forward Christian Jones will be one of the nation's top 20 under-the-rader freshmen in 2012-13. We haven't heard all too much about Jones since he committed to the Red Storm in July, but the experts seem to think he will play a significant role off the bench this year. "Burly forward isn’t the most highly touted member of the Red Storm’s freshmen class — but that doesn’t mean he isn’t going to be valuable. The 6-7 Jones has a nice blend of strength and skill that should allow him to effect the game in a multitude of ways while potentially serving as Steve Lavin’s top front court reserve."
