The NFL is making new restrictions on the number of underclassmen who can receive evaluations for the draft, allowing just five from a single school.

The league’s College Advisory Committee made this ruling in response to the record 107 underclassmen who applied for this year’s draft, and the 37 who weren’t selected.

Troy Vincent, the league’s head of football operations, said underclassmen will be advised based on their potential to be picked in the first two rounds, or be advised to stay in school.

In Friday’s edition of Three for All on Middays with MFB, Tim Benz, Christian Fauria and producer Joe Zarbano re-visited American Ninja Warrior Kacy Catanzaro and whether or not to bring a date to a wedding. To hear the segment, go to the MFB audio on demand page.

On Thursday, the guys talked about Catanzaro, a Towson University gymnast who became the first woman to make the final of American Ninja Warrior. Benz and Fauria continued to discuss Catanzaro Friday after Benz linked to her Instagram photos, her diet and her ninja submission video, which has over 100,000 views, on the MFB home page.

“It is Kacy Catanzaro madness on the Internet, she is all over the place,” Benz said.

Benz and Fauria broke down Catanzaro’s photos and her abdominal muscles.

“I’ll admit, a little too abby,” Benz said.

Fauria said: “Well she was a gymnast. I love the whole ab look.”

“Her abs are a little much,” Benz said.

Given Catanzaro’s new stardom, Fauria asked whether or not her boyfriend should be worried.

“He is panicked,” Benz said. “It was great for about 24 hours. Now this is like A.J. McCarron with Katherine Webb. This is the exact same thing.”

– With Lou Merloni off for the day, Zarbano brought his own topic to the segment. He asked the guys whether or not he should bring a date to his friend’s wedding.

“Would this be a guaranteed close for you?” Fauria asked.

“No,” Zarbano responded.

Zarbano said this person someone he could be interested in dating, but isn’t sure whether or not he wants to introduce her to his friends.

“Have you ever seen the movie Wedding Crashers? Do not bring a date to the wedding,” Fauria said. “I’m telling you, don’t do it.

“If you work at it. That is the perfect place to meet girls.”

Benz said: ”You’ve got to look at it from an NFL draft point of view. Bringing a date is sort of like you only trade up in the draft if you absolutely know you have to have this player. If it’s a guaranteed lock and just a few drinks at a wedding to be the closer, then yes, bring her. Otherwise, don’t bother. All the other girls that are not her and are single are thinking the same way.”

Zarbano said: “I’m going solo.”

The guys discuss the impact of Spygate on Tom Brady's legacy, the possibility of the NFL in London, and Mike Vrabel's yard sale.
After the recent findings of a national poll, Christian and Tim debate why Peyton Manning is more popular than Brady. How much of an impact does Spygate have?

It appears Bud Selig has to move on to Plan B.

The MLB commissioner, who is set to retire from his position in January, reportedly had former deputy commissioner Steve Greenberg in mind as his successor. But the 65-year-old Greenberg, who is the managing director of investment bank Allen & Company, told USA Today he doesn’t plan on taking the job.

“Early on, I told Bud I was not going to be a candidate,” Greenberg said. “I’m sticking to that. I’m comfortable with that. I gave it a try in the early ’90s, and I’m not at a place in my life where it makes sense to me.

“I know what’s involved. It’s a 24/7, 365-day schedule that the commissioner has to keep to do it right. The three years I spent in the commissioner’s office was exhausting.”

Another potential candidate Selig, who has been baseball’s commissioner since 1998, could look to is Joe Torre.

The former Yankees manager and current MLB executive vice president for operations told New York Daily News he’d be open to replacing Selig as commissioner, but isn’t lobbying for the position.

“If the owners feel I can help baseball, I’€™m willing to do whatever they want me to do,” Torre said Thursday.

“I don’€™t envision it; I don’€™t anticipate it. I’€™m certainly not lobbying for it. Tomorrow, I’€™m going to be 74 years old. I want to stay involved.”

The Cavaliers will do just about anything to make LeBron James happy, even give up a potential star.

Just hours after Yahoo! Sports reported that James reached out to Kevin Love about joining him in Cleveland, the Cavs are offering No. 1 pick Andrew Wiggins in attempts to trade for the Timberwolves forward, according to ESPN.com.

The two teams reportedly have been in trade discussions since James announced his return to Cleveland last Friday. Apparently Wiggins is the key to completing the deal, as Minnesota is reportedly unwilling to send Love to the Cavs without the former Kansas star in return.

New Cavaliers coach David Blatt was firm in his stance after his team’s summer league game Thursday night that the team would not deal Wiggins.

“That’s why they call them rumors,” Blatt said. “Sooner or later, in one’s career, you’re going have to deal with it. So if he has to deal with it now, then so be it. It’s the summer league. He’s learning everything as he goes along.”

The Cavs reportedly are in contract discussions with Wiggins. They would have to wait 30 days before trading the rookie after they sign him.
