DAVID FALK is profiled in this morning's WASHINGTON TIMES under the headline: "Super Agent Falk slam-dunks NBA." Bart Hubbach writes, "Among basketball agents, the pecking order begins with Falk." Falk represents two of the top six '94 draft picks and at least three first rounders. But many around the league "wonder if Falk is becoming too influential, questioning whether an agent ... should be able to dictate a team's moves" (WASHINGTON TIMES, 10/4)....The Univ. of Michigan athletic department has announced its plan to build a $5M tennis facility that will be named after Lions owner WILLIAM FORD (DETROIT FREE PRESS, 10/3).... RANDALL "TEX" COBB appeared on CNBC's "Business Insiders," and defended allegations made last year in Sports Illustrated that he participated in "fixing" a fight. Cobb said the allegations have affected his boxing and acting careers: "I'm finished in the boxing field, I can't get another fight. .... I'm some poor boy, swinging to try to stay alive, and I can't get a job anywhere" (CNBC, 10/3).
