I got sucked into this NCAA sports area back in May 2010, when I found myself startled by the bizarre brief filed by the University of Michigan, responding to NCAA allegations that UM and then- head football coach Rich Rodriguez violated NCAA bylaws. Based on what I’d seen when I used to practice law, the briefs seemed rife with arguments unsubstantiated by facts. Over the next few months, I read everything about the Michigan case, and since then have had a continued interest in NCAA regulation and enforcement issues — and a few other miscellaneous topics along the way.
The name – Brewonsouthu – comes from my reaction to those briefs filed by Michigan and Rich Rod. Having grown up in Ann Arbor, I envisioned Rich Rod (an extremely bright and likeable guy), sitting in a basement bar on South University St. in Ann Arbor, with some of his closest assistants, each taking turns reading aloud excerpts from the sheaf of papers passed around (which are the briefs)– and giggling like schoolkids.
I live in Portland Maine. I have 3 grown daughters who are probably the best creatures to walk this Earth. Look for my book, Shamateurism, coming out soon.
