BTN LiveBIG: Tom Brady’s philosophy of philanthropy

Tom Brady cannot stop. That’s the title of a profile in The New York Times Magazine issue that went out to print subscribers today.

Big Ten Links: Tackling the recruiting advantage of 'unofficial visits'

Interesting take from Bleacher Report that says the Big Ten needs to fight back on recruiting rules that favor the SEC. The author of this piece, Greg Couch, says unofficial visits hurt Big Ten schools, who can’t get as many from top players as SEC schools on those “unofficials” because of proximity. Unofficial visits aren’t paid for by the school, so it’s cheaper for a recruit in the south to drive to many SEC schools than it is for them to fly to a Big Ten one. The story quotes BTN’s very own Gerry DiNardo, too. “The Big Ten can advocate for
