The future is here! The Associated Press just announced that no longer will humans be needed to cover NCAA games, since they've partnered with a company called Automated Insights to have computers do it.

The upside: AP will now be able to cover all the games that happen, and the little schools won't feel so left out.

The downside: Computers will be writing the articles, with all the love and passion for the game that computers are known for.

“This new partnership will allow AP to cover more college sports of interest to our members and their audiences,” said Barry Bedlan, AP’s deputy director of sports products. “This will mean thousands of more stories on the AP wire, which will remain unmatched in the industry. Every college sports town will have some level of coverage.”
