Greg Oden Looks to Challenge NCAA Ruling


Ohio State big man Greg Oden (seen here in his first cover shot with AARP) has petitioned the NCAA to allow the big man to sign endorsement deals while still in school. Oden says he has been approached by Fibercon and Just for Men about possible endorsement deals, but has held back knowing it might jeopardize his college eligibility.

While some players worry about paying for books and late night pizza, Oden has daily concerns about keeping up with co-pays that his health insurance does not cover for his Lipitor (cholesterol) and Flomax (enlarged prostate) prescriptions.
