I_medium The best college football preview magazine you can read to get ready for the 2016 season is available online for free.

I_medium The 2016-17 U of L athletic season is officially underway, and women's soccer team has opened their campaign with a 1-1 draw at Indiana, and a 4-0 drubbing of Indiana State.

I_medium The world needs more Norwegian videos on Matz just so we can get uncensored, in-game Rick Pitino sideline clips.

I_medium Katina Powell's author and publisher as well as the attorney for the women suing her have agreed to keep some evidence in the lawsuits confidential.

However, the two sides could not agree on other information and Perry told them to continue to try and work it out in the next couple of weeks . Perry said he was "reluctant" to keep too much information from the public and media. The judge did not object to the agreement to make phone numbers and addresses confidential.

Nader George Shunnarah, who represents six women who claim they were defamed by being depicted in the book wearing lingerie and dancing at parties in Minardi Hall, a U of L dormitory for athletes, told Perry attorneys for Cady and IBJ have refused to "tell us what they want confidential."

Among the evidence IBJ and Cady have asked be withheld from the public are addresses, cell phone numbers, financial data, contract negotiations and other "private" information.

Shunnarah has argued most of the information - including financial records and logs kept by Powell - should be open to the public.

An attorney for Powell, Larry Wilder, has said the motion for a protective order "has nothing to do with her safety." Wilder, who did not file the motion, has said attorneys for IBJ and Cady are trying to make financial documents confidential.
