  • JUDGE'S RULING INCREASES NCAA COACHES PAYOUT BY ANOTHER $7M

              U.S. District Judge Kathryn Vratil has added "another"
         $7M "or so to the NCAA's crippling restricted-earnings
         verdict," according to Steve Rock of the K.C. STAR.  Ruling
         on "post-trial motions," Vratil granted the plaintiffs'
         request for an "inflation adjustment" that adds nearly $5M
         to the total verdict.  That, combined with the interest
         rates which "are growing at about" $300,000 a month, puts
         the NCAA total at more than $74M it owes to around 2,000
         coaches in the suit.  Vratil "also rejected more than 100
         pages of the NCAA's post-trial motions, including one for a
         new trial."  The NCAA will now likely appeal to the 10th
         Circuit Court of Appeals in CO.  A settlement seems
         "unlikely," as lawyers for the coaches say they "haven't
         heard" from the NCAA in "months" (K.C. STAR, 1/17).
