Mel Kiper Denies Claims In Sports Illustrated Story

And here comes the fallout from George Dohrmann‘s Sports Illustrated story.

ESPN is looking into Mel Kiper’s relationship with NFL agent Gary Wichard as described by Josh Luchs in this week’s SI cover story on agent tampering in college football.

In the article, Luchs claims Kiper worked with Wichard in order to persuade potential clients by using his NFL draft rankings as incentive for players to sign.

(No wonder those draft ranking arguments with Todd McShay are always so heated).

“Conversations with players, which are occasionally facilitated by agents, are a valuable way to get to know the players,” Kiper responded in a statement. “These conversations have never compromised my integrity, and my 32-year record supports that.”

Luchs stood by his claim of Kiper’s involvement on Mike and Mike in the Morning on Wednesday.

“What Mel did do in these situations, whether he realizes it or not, he allowed himself to be used in the recruiting process,” Luchs said.

This will likely be the first of many folks to publicly deny the allegations described in Dohrmann’s story.

Stay tuned.

Hell in a Cell: WWE Launches Mobile Magazine

World Wrestling Entertainment has an Official Mobile Magazine. For $2.99 a month, the weekly publication promises to be “stuffed with as much content as your phone can handle,” like interviews with wrestling stars, blog posts and breaking news. Let’s hope your phone can fight back.

The application is the latest in a series of Mozines from startup company ThumbMedia Group in Burbank, CA, which designs and distributes mobile magazines for publishers across multiple platforms. Mozine also created the ad for the application, which ran in the October issue of the print edition. Said ThumbMedia CEO Mike Cartabiano:

We’ve just launched on the iPhone and we’re already #85 on the top 200 paid entertainment applications, which is pretty spectacular. We have – last time I looked – a 5-star rating. We’re happy, they’re happy, it’s been a very seamless process for the WWE team in working with us.

Android and Blackberry editions are coming soon.
