LAS VEGAS – Whether or not you bought into the NCAA's spook stories that Jerry Tarkanian was shady, it's a fact the legendary basketball coach relied on one particular trick to keep his UNLV recruits in the dark.

Buffalo sports fans are familiar with ownership changes. The Sabres have switched hands four times in the past 15 years. Many of us were around when the Braves dribbled off to San Diego. But policies for NFL ownership are different than in other leagues, and we haven't seen them applied in Buffalo. The Bills have known only one owner. Ralph Wilson, who died two weeks ago…
