"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."

Here's the money quote from the CHL president.
“Our position is our players are amateur student athletes and we provide the best playing experience to our 1,300 players. . . It’s important that we defend this because it could have a huge impact on all amateur sport in this country.”
Amateur student athletes, who sign contracts and don't go to school.

This isn't common, because most people aren't dumb enough to try this on camera.
I only can recall two incidents where this happened in football. Mike Tomlin against the Ravens and he was fined $100,000. Sal Alosi of the Jets was fined $25,000 and suspended for the entire season plus an additional $100,000 fine to the Jets.

Five weeks until the Egg Bowl. I really hope both teams make it to that game undefeated.
|1 day 5 hours ago||Not all of them||
We're allowed to have 18 scholarships, the roster currently has 27 players. Some guys are only getting partial money.

How would wearing a headset fix any of those things?
|2 days 3 hours ago||Well||
Those are good points, but that's not what this post is about.
This post is about a terrible high school coach Bo saw who stood on the sideline with his arms folded with no headset, so by transitive property Hoke must be terrible too because he does the same thing.
|2 days 3 hours ago||Make this guy the coach||
So that's why Devin Gardner throws interceptions, the offensive line can't block and our corners can't cover. It's because he doesn't wear a headset! Why didn't anyone think of that before?
|2 days 3 hours ago||That's great||
Minus the headset, it's also a spot on description of Lovie Smith. This fanbase has just become fixated on the fact that because Hoke doesn't wear a headset and we're not winning, it must be the reason.
As if how the coach stands on the sideline has anything to do with how the team plays.
|2 days 4 hours ago||Oh||
So because Hoke doesn't wear a headset he must be like this guy Bo saw one time 30 years ago. That makes sense.
|2 days 4 hours ago||Wow||
What a terrible play to call. K-State pick six.
|2 days 5 hours ago||Great idea||
While we're at it, why don't we hire Nick Saban to coach the football team too!
|3 days 2 hours ago||I don't think so||
I thought John Beilein didn't like it, so they don't do it anymore.
|3 days 21 hours ago||Strange||
John L Smith is the head coach at Fort Lewis.
|4 days 1 min ago||He kind of has to||
His team is #1, and they still have a tough finish to the year. Whether he will leave or not, they don't want that distraction right now.

I used to get a Red Bull on the way to work every day, couldn't drive without one. Used to get the same headaches when I didn't have one too.

It's says a lot about your 3rd string when your backup is a converted linebacker. I think his college football debut will be a forgettable one.

They were breaking windows shooting from the street. You take one of those BB's in the wrong spot on the neck and you're dead.
|1 week 3 days ago||I'm confused||
I'm confused why people are so angry in the first place. Isn't showing up 5 minutes after kickoff what the student section usually does?
|1 week 3 days ago||From the article||
What is sounds like is that most of these players sign things for the memorabilia dealers. There's supposed to be an unwritten agreement that they keep it to themselves, but if the player gets greedy and starts selling stuff on Ebay by himself, then the dealers go to the NCAA. That's apparently what happened with Gurley.
|1 week 3 days ago||Funny||
Because in the thread from Reddit, the OP says to look on Ebay for autographs from a heisman contender and they would know who was getting suspended, but Jameis Winston has more items for same than Gurley does.
|1 week 4 days ago||No||
There are plenty of head coaches who call their own plays from the sideline. There is really no difference.
|1 week 6 days ago||Not likely||
Michigan's 2015 class is incredible, like one of the best we've ever had, but it has 9 players. They would love to add Matthews but I don't think there's room.
|1 week 6 days ago||Don't make me laugh||
Fulmer didn't leave behind anything special, but they are where they are because UT hired Lake Kiffin and Derek Dooley. Not because of Fulmer.
|2 weeks 18 hours ago||Oh boy||
|2 weeks 22 hours ago||One name||
One name who hasn't been mentioned at all is Mark Richt.
His teams haven't been bad at all, but in the last 5 years he's only won 10 games or more twice. The fans seem to be losing patience with him and I think he's out if they don't win 10 games this year.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||No||
The job was posted on the website. I'm guessing that those are up right now because they're open.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Wat||
You can't be serious. You really think that walking in the door 5 minutes after kickoff will embarrass the athletic department?
