More on Bloom: Many more writers have chimed in on Jeremy Bloom's decision to challenge the NCAA and accept skiing endorsements while continuing to play college football. See my earlier post.

ESPN's Mark Kreidler thinks that Bloom has a losing case. The Boulder Daily Camera also thinks that Bloom will lose, but that his case will pave the way for NCAA reform.

On the other side, Kevin Blackistone of the Dallas Morning News has an insightful column saying the NCAA should make an exception in this case. Bernie Lincicome calls the NCAA "a big bully" that should let Bloom ski.

In response, the NCAA has said that it plans to address possible changes to the rule, Bylaw, but no earlier than August 2005.
