IOWA: The Board of Regents will meet today to discuss letters sent by a mother who accused the university of mishandling its response to her daughter's allegations of being sexually assaulted by two football players. In two letters sent to school president Sally Mason, the mother accused officials of encouraging her daughter, an Iowa athlete, to pursue resolution "informally" within the athletic department. She said the family was told that it would be faster than the "arduous" process of involving police. The family went to the police.

OBITUARY: David E. Cawood, a former high-ranking NCAA executive who helped run the Final Four for more than two decades, died Sunday at his home in Louisville. He was 64. He collapsed after a morning run and resuscitation efforts were unsuccessful, according to the NCAA Web site. From 1975 to 1997, his NCAA responsibilities included the coordination of media and marketing for the men's Final Four. He helped negotiate the first $1-billion rights fee for a sporting event with CBS, and a subsequent $1.725-billion agreement.
