"I think there's a lot of work to be done collectively, not only in college sports but I think the NFL, NHL, MLB, NBA - they've all been thinking about this", MI athletic director Warde Manuel said Tuesday. New York, Connecticut and MI were all considering online poker even before the Supreme Court ruling. "The initial thought would be we better do a tremendous job of educating the young men that we're around because there's going to be more people interested in betting on games".

" Because whether we like it or not, our neighboring states CT and NY are already engaging with legal changes, and we have a huge new casino opening in Springfield on August 24 and there will be a lot of implications for them as well", said Lesser.
