It's a new week. Here's what you should be reading!
- The first thing you should read (which you probably already have) is this Sun-Times profile of Tom Hruby, the 32-year-old Navy SEAL who is trying to walk on to the Northwestern football team as a defensive end. Great story.
- In not so great news, Venric Mark got suspended for the first two games of the season. Here's why it's not a huge deal.
- Henry has a great round-up of how NU's former stars did in the NFL preseason.
- In case you somehow hadn't heard, the NCAA lost the O'Bannon case, but still got a pretty favorable outcome. I broke down the ruling for SB Nation and Vox.com, and explained why Judge Claudia Wilken's specific injunction didn't make a lot of sense. Jon Solomon of CBS Sports and Patrick Hruby of Sports on Earth both have great breakdowns, as well.
- The NCAA is changing its governance to an "autonomous" structure. Here's a breakdown of what it means.
- I went on WNUR Sports with Cameron Songer to discuss Northwestern, O'Bannon and autonomy.
