Coaches' timeouts are worse. Basketball teams should get one, full stop.

Pretty readily available. NALP publishes that information.

From a perception standpoint, I agree about the 12 schools in Florida, but the fact is, law is a demand profession in Florida. That's with 12 ABA accredited schools and almost 4,000 new Bar admittees each year. That said, I would expect several of those 12 schools to not exist, or exist in a significantly different format, in a few years. Only 5 of those 12 schools made the US News top 100 (FSU, UF, Miami, Stetson, and FIU).

With how competitive the recruitment environment is, it absolutely makes a difference on the employer side, which effectively reduces opportunities for subsequent classes. If an employer experiences a school as not interested in placing it's graduates in their type of employment, there are more than enough other schools who are glad to have them on campus.

From the hiring side of this, I can definitely say you are right. That said, the person you were responding to was right on the money about the impact of the types of jobs. That's been a big issue for some other schools below Michigan who have slipped in ranking in recent years.

I don't think many people posting here realize how many people living in Buffalo (and western upstate New York in general) grow up Michigan fans. I have lots of friends (through college) and family (through marriage) that live in that area and was shocked when I first realized how many Michigan fans there are there. From my experience, Michigan and Syracuse are easily the two top teams in that area, followed (distantly) by a few others.

Neat series of articles. Thanks for sharing!

Maybe in some places, or even most, but certainly not all. I happen to live in one of those areas. We have an exceptionally high median income, but our public schools suck. Primarily because the majority of the generators of that income will never have kids that go to the public schools (primarily wealthy retirees, and those with kids send them to private school). As a result, there is little to no pressure to allocate those community resources on public school education and there is little to no interest in knowing or caring what goes on in those schools. We sure do have nice beaches, though!

So what that he spent his last 3 years of K-12 in Florida? He spent the previous 9 in Ohio. I'm not saying it's Ohio's fault, but it sure isn't Florida's...

Also, I'm willing to be his dad's business isn't concerned about missing out on creative or self-paced types. Not every business need people like that, not does every job, and that's when those tests are typically utilized.

The income graph is really easy to point a finger at, but remember the correlation does not equal causation. It's not really median family income; it's tax base within the school / funding district. Anyone who is being honest about this discussion knows that there is way more involved in this issue than family income alone (eg community resources, family income, proportion of population with children in local public school or who will go through the local public schools, parental involvement, teacher pay, etc.). If it really were about median income alone, Florida should have much better schools (in general) than it does.

I'm not upset about being challenged, either. As a self-professed "FERPA nerd" this is a debate/discussion that doesn't come up much! I will say that in my very first post I should have qualified my first sentence starting with an "I think" rather than a definitive statement.
|1 week 5 days ago||I'm willing to bet that there||
I'm willing to bet that there is a good argument to be made that it is (i.e. with respect to how "official university committee" is determined/appointed). In other words, I certainly bet that the members of the CSG consider themselves as an official university committee and have been treated as such in the past (just going by your edit to your OP about the information being provided, albeit in redacted form (which falls under a different exception)). As I mentioned below, this is, at best, a murky issue and they didn't need to go there.
|1 week 5 days ago||Also, FWIW, I am not upset||
Also, FWIW, I am not upset that they declined to disclose it. My issue is with the reason for not disclosing. Literally, all they had to say was something along the lines of "pursuant to FERPA, the University is not required to disclose the requested information and chooses not to do so in order to protect the privacy of the students involved." Going into any more of an explantion than that was not necessary and opens the entire issue up to debate (i.e. by raising the definition of "school official" at all, when doing so was not necessary).
|1 week 5 days ago||It's certainly an official||
It's certainly an official committee. The inclusion of disciplinary or grievance are non-exclusive examples.
|1 week 5 days ago||It's the prevailing||
It's the prevailing interpretation of 34 CFR 99.31(a)(1), to the point that it's stated right in the DOE FPCO model notice: "A school official is ... a student serving on an official committee, such as a disciplinary or grievance committee."
|1 week 5 days ago||That's a very general||
That's a very general statement of how it works, but it's exactly what said. The key aspect is "members of committees and disciplinary boards".
|1 week 5 days ago||Sorry, but you're wrong. The||
Sorry, but you're wrong. The "school officials" exception definitely allows for disclosure to students serving on committees if there is a legitimate educational interest (the last part is the key here). The only catch is that the school has to include notice of disclosure to those groups in its annual notice to students (which is both typical and likely, given the claim of prior disclosures to review other cases). That said, that just means the University can disclose it to them; they certainly aren't compelled to do so, and the University alone has the authority to make the determination that there isn't a legitimate educational interest in the request. What the University is really claiming is that there is no legitimate educational interest in the request. Think about that for a minute.

That isn't true any longer. South Carolina plays at least one Thursday night game a year.

|2 weeks 20 hours ago||I agree, and that's||
I agree, and that's ultimately consistent with what I was intending to convey. The forechecking and puck possession, while mainly occurring in the offensive zone, are spring from the defensive strategy. Getting purely offensive players to buy into that strategy is remarkable. For anyone who questions that, just take a look at what Russia did with some of the best offensive players in the world. They played a pure offense game (much like the US did) and had nothing to show for it. Lots of one and done opportunities and no structure to fall back onto when that didn't work. In my opinion, the best game of the entire tournament was the Canada-Finland game. Both teams played this tournament with a similar philosophy.

To add... This is a really big deal that I don't think these students have fully thought through. They will be employees, so they will have to be paid at least minimum wage, which if they are paid at that rate likely won't be enough money to pay the taxes on the tuition, room, and board (non-cash) income.

Deducted, but not excluded. It's a below the line deduction, so (if very general terms) it would only offset their income by their marginal tax rate and they would be subject to income tax on the remainder.

If they would have stuck to a unified argument about representation for health and safety standards, they would have had a much better chance of succeeding. On any other grounds, even if they are successful at this stage, this just may be the death knell for some schools' football programs.
