Timeouts not going away.
Everyone knows that the end of a basketball game is when everyone tunes in and that's when the commercials are loaded up.

Michigan had $137.5 million fiscal 2013-14 athletics budget.
We have about 700 student athletes.
Assuming a $3000 stipend, a $1000 plane voucher, $3000 in health care coverage, that is $7000x700 = $4.9million.
That's a 3.6% budget increase.

Did you think this through?
What about people that work at UofM? Live in Ann Arbor? Faculty that got their degrees somewhere else? Coaches and trainers that got their degree somewhere else?
A kid with cancer in the hospital that the players visit - not a true Wolverine, I guess.
The wolverine is the state animal so anybody from the State of Michigan call call themselves a wolverine.
Someone who attends is a Univeristy of Michigan Student.
Someone who graduates is a Univeristy of Michigan Alumni.

This is what will happen. You'll receive a negotiated stipend and then your on your own. Just like kids that do work study.
A lot of the perks will disappear - tutors, free food and weight rooms etc.
|3 weeks 4 hours ago||I think ticket / activity||
I think ticket / activity fees are already maxed, so when labor cost go up and you cannot raise prices - you cut costs.
This means elimination of scholarships.
Teams will become "amateur clubs" like they were 60 years ago. Everyone is a walk-on.
Which means only students that can afford college can go.
Poor kids will be relegated to the semi-pros, semi-pro football will become a reality.
Is this any different than hockey? Kids that want to go to college play college hockey. Those that don't play in the minors at 18.
This is probably how it should work, getting rid of all the phoney classes and cheating for kids that don't belong in college anyway.

Law of supply and demand. Demand (popularity) of football increases, they can charge more. Then the market makes cheaper substitutes, then the original product crashes in price.
I believe as the baby boomers retire (people that are conditioned to sit in small stadium seats and pay high prices) they will cut back and the millennials will NOT pick up the slack. This is why student sections are half empty. They were rasied in a world where everything is televised, streamed, DVR'ed - there is no special need to see it live.

Agree, most of the "experts" are writing us off already.
I like the underdog role.

These lawsuits go head to head against Title IX.
If they try to pay big men's sport players, they will have to equal pay for the womens sports.
The costs will be too prohibitive and 75% of the sports will be cut and become "amateur clubs" with no school support.
I think the lawyers will argue that they cannot pay mens players what they are worth in a competitive market because the women would be worth less and that goes directly against Title IX. Title IX will win out in the courts over anti-trust.
