Clemson-Notre Dame Matches National Powers With ‘Different Business Plans’

Notre Dame football coach Brian Kelly bristled a bit this week when asked about Saturday’s showdown with top-ranked Clemson as “an important measuring stick” for his program. 

At least that’s how a reporter framed his question. 

“Did I say it was an important measuring stick for the program or did you?” Kelly shot back playfully. 

Once the desired clarification was delivered, Kelly smiled. 

“Thank you,” he said. “Now we’re accurate.”

This is Kelly’s 11th season in South Bend, and in that time he has delivered a pair of 12-0 regular seasons and a remarkable turnaround from the 4-8 faceplant of

Click here to read the full article.

In the Q&A session at the end of the Live Nation third quarter earnings report on Thursday, the company’s CEO Michael Rapino had some strong words for former WME music chief Marc Geiger’s recently announced “SaveLive” plan to bail out struggling independent concert venues via a joint-venture that would see Geiger and investors taking 51% equity in the venues.

Rapino called the plan, for which Geiger has amassed $75 million from investors, a “fire sale” for venues and says he does not see it as being attractive to venues, even if they are struggling.

Asked what impact, “if any,” the plan can have on the industry, Rapino audibly sighed and said, “Probably the same one he had at William Morris,” before continuing. “I think there’s a lot of talk about independent venues, ‘Save Our Stages,’ et cetera, and there’s no doubt everyone in

Zillow shares climbed more than 8% in extended trading on Thursday after the digital real estate company reported third-quarter estimates that blew past analysts estimates and offered a better-than-expected forecast for the fourth quarter.

Zillow provides inventory across the country along with technology that allows prospective buyers to shop for homes and take virtual tours.

Zillow reported third-quarter earnings of 37 cents per share, excluding some items, on revenue of $657 million.
