Week that was in sports: The Big 12 has received much needed stability through their new media deal. The new college football helmet rule is hypocritical and misses the point. The Boston University hockey program has come under fire while a group wants the NHL to impose an age limit. The heads of the CBA negotiations for the NHL stated the obvious while the KHL is expanding. The Phoenix situation seems to have a light at the end of the tunnel while it is one year today since the tragic Lokomotiv plane crash. The Cubs were bush league last night and over their four game serious against the Nationals. The NFL makes billions per year but doesn't want to pay a few million to the referees.
