What I’m reading and writing, June 10

• At Atlanta Soccer News I followed up a theme I addressed here yesterday about who’s a real soccer fan and who’s not with another World Cup set to begin.

• The world of college athletics is breaking apart with Colorado announcing it has accepted an invitation to join the Pac 10 Conference. The Big 12’s demise is just around the corner, and a massive domino effect is expected to drastically alter not just football and men’s basketball, but all the other sports at these many schools.

Something I’ll be addressing soon: What might the impact be for women’s basketball and the so-called “Olympic” sports? The longer travel and more difficult logistics could make it very difficult for recruiting, rivalries and general growth.
