Take Back Cyberspace! (from the NCAA)

I've been following the college hockey national tournament this weekend and read in multiple places about how the NCAA does not allow any member of the press to blog more than 3 entries per period of a hockey game. Apparently, since the blogger didn't pay for rights to the game, the NCAA won't allow this "live representation". As if anybody would turn off the TV and follow a live blogger instead, thus denying all important advertising revenue to the NCAA. It's a ridiculous case of the NCAA flexing its curiously educated muscles.

But this Grand Forks writer has taken back cyberspace, inviting any readers to post as many game updates as they want in the comments section of his gameday blog in order to circumvent the rule. They can't revoke the press credentials of the people!
