2   Are eSports   Programs on the Horizon?
    Video games were once associated with couch potatoes, but
    today there is growing legitimacy, especially around what is
    known as eSports. This type ofprofessional competitive gam-
    ing is gaining popularity in the US., and eSports is breaking
    into the mainstream world - emerging technology companies,
    standard athletic programs, and even higher education institu-
    tions are jumping on the virtual band wagon.

3   The  Benefits  of Neutrality  in Intercollegiate
    Athletics: The  Case  for Arbitration  in NCAA
    Enforcement and Infractions Matters
    The National Collegiate Athletic Association ('NCAA)
    enforcement process and decisions rendered by the NCAA Com-
    mittee on Infractions (COI) have been a consistent lightning
    rod for scrutiny and litigation.

4   Georgia   Emerges   with  Barely  a Scratch  after
    Rules  Violation
    LevelI or Level II? Increasingly, therein lies the delineation
    between draconian sanctions and a slap on the wrist.

5   Locklin  Leverages   Coaching Experience in
    Liberty  University's Compliance Department

6   Is Syracuse   University's  Post-Season Ban
    Enough?
    Syracuse University is hoping that while many ofthe names
    and faces have changed at the NCAA, the pattern offorgiveness
    to those membership institutions that violate the rules will hold
    when an institution administers its own bitter medicine.


7   In Restoring  Paterno   Wins,  NCAA   Admits
    Defeat
    The biggest news emanating from the NCAA' annual conven-
    tion in January wasn't the new rules enacted by the Big-5 Con-
    ferences, which jiurther distances themselves from the realm of
    amateurism. As significant as that news was, it took a back seat
    to the agreement by the NCAA to restore 112 wins to the Penn
    State University (PSU) football team, 111 of them by legend-
    ary coach Joe Paterno. Paterno' record reverts to its legitimate
    total of 409-136-3 and restores him to his rightful place as the
    winningest coach in major college football history.

8   National  Governance Organization Should Be
    Better than  This
    The NCAA  announced in January that it will pay $3,000
    to the parents of 125 players so they can attend the College
    Football Playofffinals and $3,000 to parents of the four
    teams of 15 men andfour teams of 15 women who make it to
    their respective NCAA Division I Final Four - plus an extra
    $1,000 to the parents ofthe two teams each that make it to
    their respective championship finals. This is a huge departure
    from the normal NCAA policy that treats all male and female
    athletes going to NCAA championships in the same manner-
    no expenses for parents.

9   Luck  Selected   as New   Regulatory   Executive
    Vice  President
    The NCAA  has hired Oliver Luck as the executive vice presi-
    dent of regulatory affairs, a new position that will bring the
    national office regulatory functions - academic and member-
    ship affairs, the Eligibility Center and enforcement - under
    one umbrella.
