A CHANGE IS GONNA COME: Pitt AD Steve Pederson yesterday said that such legislation "may need to be limited to schools with appropriate resources." The issue will be "one of many" discussed Monday at the ACC meetings. Pederson: "I can't sit here and tell you we are there yet, but we are nearing that time where we will be able to find something that makes sense and helps student-athletes out a little bit more" (PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE-REVIEW, 5/8). In L.A., Chris Dufresne writes this could be the summer in which college athletics "gets its Cecil B. DeMille close-up." Several important issues are "front and center, from the outcomes of Northwestern unionization to the pending student-athlete licensing case pitting Ed O'Bannon against the NCAA." MWC Commissioner Craig Thompson said that the college landscape is "changing so fast he hasn't been able to take vacation for years" (L.A. TIMES, 5/8).
