The NCAA voted to allow the big five to do their own thing...college sports as we know it is headed towards the crapper.

With respect to Tony Bosch and Biogenesis, I will not be shocked if the name Dan Uggla with his popeye arms shows up on the new list forthcoming.

If baseball can keep steroids out of baseball, and it will be an ongoing battle as new ones are developed, Barry Bonds HR total is unbreakable.

There is a general argument to be made that any of the older records will probably not be broken for a couple reasons. First, if they are old records, they must be hard to break having been on the books for a long time. Secondly, with the huge influx of money into salaries players are not always playing as long as they did and sometimes quit while still playing at a high level, such as Barry Sanders. If you have all the money you can never spend, why not enjoy it and retire? The reason Cy Young's record will not go down is obvious, with the specialization of pitching and the move to five man rotations the chance to get "wins" in major league baseball is just not there now as it was in his day.

With respect to football, you could see some records fall as they increase the number of games to 18, which they will do in the future. This will result obviously in more records tied to individual season performance to fall, howver, it may shorten careers as players, especially running backs are burned out at an earlier age.

did some googling:

projects than any other single individual in New Mexico. From Little League to the Lobos, when George Maloof died of a heart attack New Mexico sports lost a patron of giant proportion. But his sons have picked up the reins of his multi-million dollar empire and abiding love for athletics and are carrying on. Joe Maloof, a Lobo football letterman in 1977 and 1978, .is in charge of Maloof enterprises headquarters in Albuquerque while his younger brother Gavin, who played his college football at Trinity University and the University of Tennessee at Chattanoog~, is assigl)ep to leading the Houston Rockets. Ironically, Gavin played under current UNM head football coach Joe Morrison at UT-Chattanooga, and remembers the Lobo head coach as ua winner." Like his father, the importance of being a winner is uppermost in Gavin's concept of the world. "Life is a big game, and the object is to win. 1 don't buy the idea that it doesn 'I mal/er if you win or lose, it's how you play.... Nobody remembers second best; they remember the best.'' Hearing Gavin talk is like hearing an echo. George Maloof used to say the same thing, whether he was talking to athletes or drivers on his beer trucks, Now Gavin is running an NBA team, and applying that philosophy to the Houston Rockets. How does a young executive

stewwie, as I said, he was a walkon..no idea if he dressed out or not, but he was on the team per an article in the Chattanooga paper that came out after his father passed. The article was sometime in the early 1980s. The article discussed how Gavin and his brother inherited the Houston Rockets and this his teammates just a few years before had no idea that the future owner of the Rockets was on the team as a walkon.

This article confirms he was at UTC:

Speaking of the Maloof brothers, did yall know that Gavin was once a walkon member of the UTC football team?

I am guessing we may see Emilio Bonifacio playing some CF and leading off for the Braves.
