8/22 (What I'm Reading) Quickie

What I'm reading, last night and this morning:

*Mark Cuban analyzes Google's play for the NFL with the WSJ's Peter Kafka.

(Also, if Apple TV secures a la carte rights to ESPN isn't an extinction-level event for cable companies, but it changes the game in ways that are much bigger than anyone will predict.)

*Reuters' Jack Shafer (I'm a huge fan of his) totally mis-reads the "Grantland Model."

*Grantland's Bill Barnwell has a two-part piece on the myth of "momentum" in the NFL. It's excellent. Read Part 1 here and read Part 2 here.

*Wright Thompson writing longish on legendary Iowa wrestling coach Dan Gable.
