NCAA profits, H-backs

The best example of a second-day story, as per the definition given in class, is this report from Troy Warzocha of the Lewiston Tribune that localizes the issue of whether or not the NCAA profits off student athletes. The piece investigates the tagging of NCAA products with the names of student athletes on the organization’s online store. Seeing that Jay Blias successfully found Manziel jerseys online, Warzocha conducted his own search for Idaho jerseys and found several. The jerseys only had numbers. But when he typed the names of a few former UI players into the search engine, the search routed him to the jerseys.

The Salt Lake Tribune’s BYU beat writer Jay Drew also had a good story up on Friday about some new alignments in BYU’s offense. He gives the information a different perspective, looking at the last time the Cougars used the H-back position, although it was unofficial. The article also goes into detail about how the use of H-backs will affect tight ends Kaneakua Friel and Devin Mahina.
