Judge questions $75M NCAA concussion settlement (Yahoo Sports)

The federal judge overseeing a first-of-its-kind head injury settlement with the NCAA expressed serious concerns Thursday about some terms and the vast scope of the $75 million deal that currently encompasses all college athletes going back decades. Facing NCAA and plaintiffs' attorneys who crafted the deal, U.S. District Judge John Lee wondered why sports like rifle teams, golf and swimming would be covered by the proposed agreement along with football, hockey, soccer and other contact sports.

Just about everybody agrees - except for one person, apparently - that Arizona is the overwhelming favorite to win the Pac-12 again this season. The Wildcats are the near-unanimous choice to win the conference, receiving 31 of 32 first-place votes in the preseason media poll released Thursday. Utah was picked second and Colorado third. UCLA, which was chosen fourth, received the other first-place vote.
