Stanford men care not for NCAA silliness

The NCAA killed a favorite recruiting tool of former 49ers and current University of Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh on Friday when it grounded teams from holding practices or clinics away from their regular facilities.

The move should quell some of the whinings from Ohio State and the SEC. But don’t include Stanford, Harbaugh’s old stomping grounds, as an interested party in the ruling.

According to Rule of Tree, head coach David Shaw said, “It doesn’t make sense for us to go hold a camp some place where there might be one person in the entire state that’s eligible to get into Stanford.”

Your move, everyone in Alabama.

Who won what?

GOLF: Under Armour marketer and golfer Jordan Spieth led the Masters through his first nine holes on Sunday before bogeying the 10th and 11th holes just to quadruple-bogey No. 12.

After Danny Willett earned the green jacket, Spieth said, “Big picture? This one will hurt.”

Even Tiger Woods coughed up a lead despite leading through the first three rounds, so no need for Spieth to beat himself up.Danny WillettDavid ShawGolfjacob c. palmerJOrdan SpiethNCAATiger Woods
