I had to share this because I literally laughed out loud. Delany starts rambling about how there is no arose Bowl if you pay players. Which made no sense.
Then he says the idea of paying players goes against the entire college experience and he couldn't see league members agreeing to it. If some did, he said, they likely would be kicked out of the conference because the move would create an imbalance among schools that could not be resolved.
That was paragraph number two. I stopped reading to share after that because it makes NO sense. Delany's is one of those guys who talks really confident and with scare scenarios but has no clue what he's actually saying. But he's Jim Delany and he sounds so confident that you almost believe him until you actually listen to what he said.
Think about that paragraph, then think about which teams in the B1G can afford to pay players. Do you REALLY think Michigan and Ohio State are ever going to be voted out of the league? Hell no. You take e top half of the schools in the B1G in terms of profit and revenue for the league and kick them out and you're left with a better version of the MAC.
I'm not for paying players...but THIS is the man leading our conference.
