After the week’s turmoil in Europe, we’ll check in on the U.S. economy. Plus, we’ll talk to U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan about the Senate’s vote to revise No Child Left Behind. And we just got more details on the biggest apparel deal in college sports history: Nike is agreeing to pay the University of Michigan $169 million to be the school’s official athletic brand.  It’s a sign of the battle between Nike, Adidas and Under Armour to own college campuses.
