Cornell Chronicle

In a study of what current workers expect from potential new hires, "former student athletes are expected to possess relatively greater leadership ability, more self-confidence and heightened self-respect, compared to people who didn’t play a varsity high school sport," Kevin M. Kniffin, postdoctoral research associate in the Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management, reports.

Coin flips decide more than kickoffs
Beaumont Enterprise
Coin tosses to determine aspects of high school sporting events is commonplace. It is not currently as common to see coin flips determining playoff berths, but they do determine plenty of other things. Once the playoffs start, everything from who the home team is to what stadium the game will be played in and even what type of ball will be used can be subject to heads or tails.

College athletics: Necessary, not just nice to have
The Athletic Edge
The shouts and cheers. The colors. The music. And above all, the game play. For those who enjoy memories of collegiate sports, those sights and sounds are indelible.

3 secrets to successful leadership
By Greg L. Alston
Good leadership is a curious thing. Lots of brilliant minds have tried to describe it, and lots of feeble minds have misunderstood it. The subject is made more difficult because people use words like charismatic, visionary and brilliant to describe some people who have been successful, while using words like autocratic, ruthless and stern to describe others with a history of success. Does personality define the leader, or is it something else? And how does someone travel from being inexperienced to becoming a good leader?

Defensive shift finds some believers in college baseball
The New York Times
Texas Tech baseball coach Tim Tadlock is a rarity in college baseball, a coach willing to trust 21- and 22-year-olds to pitch to a defense. The radical shifting that has become popular in the major leagues remains rare in college baseball because most pitchers lack major league command, or the ability to throw the ball to an intended spot so the batter hits it where the defenders are positioned.

San Francisco Chronicle
To win the World Cup, or even place in the top four, soccer teams will have to play seven games, so each non-goalie will cover around 40 miles of ground. And, to run a lot, they will have to eat a lot.
