LeBron, Chris Paul rock Rec Center's rims

Men's basketball
CBSSportsLine.com wrote an interesting story about LeBron James and Chris Paul's Monday evening, which included seven pick-up games at UA's Rec Center.
The nation's best and brightest basketball people have converged in Akron for the LeBron James Skills Academy. Some of the ZipsNation members have poked their heads in and gotten a look at future Zip Zeke Marshall. Read some of their comments if you have a chance.
Football
Do you want your name on InfoCision Stadium?
The university wants to sell naming rights to just about every facet and part of the new football facility, the ABJ reports.

    Stadium notes...
    The university has, however, sold all 13 luxury suites. It has raised $21.5 million, which is great progress toward the $30 million goal. (I'm wondering this to myself: Assume the Zips tank this season. What if a big donor gives a gift contingent on firing a coach? It happens at bigger universities.)
    Here's a nugget hidden in the story: There will be a cash bar inside the stadium, but it seems to suggest it will only be available for the loge patrons. The U might plan more places to whet your whistle.
    The webcams show some serious progress (and a whole lot of mud).
    Pretty soon, the second Nemer trial will begin. Probate Court Judge Bill Spicer set himself up for inequity here. Certainly, you cannot pay one Nemer the astronomical value and pay the other Nemer a fair value. Or can you?
