Friday Sports Links-Super Bowl Edition

With nearly half the nation watching, along with millions more around the globe, it simply doesn't get much bigger than the Super Bowl. In honor of the big game, everything NFL and Super Bowl related leads off this week's sports links.


Super Bowl

At least four lawsuits blaming the NFL for concussion-related dementia and brain disease will be consolidated in Philadelphia, and more could follow. http://es.pn/AzEaLf

An excellent analysis by Michael McCann of the "clean zones" implemented at the Super Bowl and other major sporting events to prevent ambush marketing. http://t.co/HlMZVZcn

The NCAA will look this summer at retooling its Division I governance structure amid what some officials say is growing sentiment to further split its top football-playing schools. http://usat.ly/x7Al5u
