The PGA Tour’s suspension of Doug Barron for violation of its anti-doping policy has resulted in a lawsuit. The New York Times reports here. According to the story, the violation was based on Barron’s use of two drugs - synthetic testosterone and beta-blockers. This will be an interesting case to follow, as other pro athletes have received TUEs for both substances. This is the first case I am aware of that involves both substances. Stay tuned…
The Wall Street Journal ranks various anti-doping programs in a number of sports here. The Professional Bowlers Assocation and the World’s Strongest Man Competition rank near the bottom.
The multi-faceted website Huffington Post now has section devoted to sports here. Lots of insightful commentary by Wayne Winston, Dave Berri, Roger Abrams, etc. I’ve added the site to the blogroll for easy access moving forward.
Here is an update on former tennis prodigy Ally Baker.
I just finished drafting the final exam. As you know, the final exam is closed book and cumulative. There are 26 total questions. There is one long essay question that is worth 6.5% of your final course grade. The other 25 questions include true/false, fill-in-the-blank, and short answer. If you have any questions, please save them for our review session on Dec. 8 (dinner provided).
As you know, the case brief oral defenses will take place Dec. 1. The final exam will include a few questions based off of the defenses by your peers. As such, it is important that you take notes during class. To help with note-taking, I have posted a seven page document on OnCourse with each case listed and ample room to take notes. You may want to print this document off and bring it to class on Dec. 1.
