A contract whereby a 17 year old signs away all rights to profit from his skills or his likeness while the NCAA, school, coaches, administrators and everyone else gets rich off his sweat isn't an ethical arrangement. To me, breaking a contract that's bullshit to begin with doesn't mean that a kid lacks morals.

You're right about loans not being taxed, but IIRC, forgiving or writing off a debt can be treated as income to the person whose debt was forgiven

What's 'not right' about having valuable skills and getting paid for them? Just because something is against NCAA rules doesn't automatically make it unethical

Will it be the same announcing crew as last night? I thought they were surprisingly good

I know Beilein is a really, really good coach but why the fuck does Irvin never sit. He can't hit the broad side of a barn right now and is getting worked defensively. He literally brings nothing to the table right now but he plays all the minutes

Is Wagner that bad? It's not like we can redshirt him at this point and he can't possibly be worse than Doyle

What a fucking clown show
|2 days 9 hours ago||This guy is a complete clown.||
This guy is a complete clown. In addition to being completely full of shit, he has no idea when to just shut the fuck up. Literally nobody believes anything he's saying yet every couple of days he has to spout off

That's not part of his game though. As athletic as he is, he just can't take guys off the dribble. Hopefully he can develop that part of his game over the next couple years

That's it. Thanks

Wilbon went to Northwestern and has always hated Michigan. You're thinking of the dude who killed 'black grantland' whose name is escaping me right now

My feelings aren't hurt, and what you just said is legitimate; it can be really frustrating to watch this team. But to call a kid who seems to be doing his best garbage is just a shitty thing to do and people will call you out for it

I'm the kind of guy who doesn't think it's cool to insult kids for not being as good as I'd like them to be. In other words, not an asshole.

You're garbage. Way to insult a kid who is better at basketball than you'll ever be at anything

I get what he's trying to say, but being compared to Trump is an insult, regardless of which side of the aisle you're on

This is so great. I just can't believe how far he got under their skin in roughly one year. I can't even imagine what it's going to be like in another year or 2

You're probably right, but I'd like to think there are enough knowledgable people around here to understand 1) d linemen can contribute in many other ways than just sacks, and 2) that said asshats will be negged to Bolivia
|6 days 6 hours ago||I agree that you can't fire||
I agree that you can't fire Beilein at this point. With that being said, I have this bad feeling that the program has plateaued under him. With the level we've been recruiting at, I just don't see how we'll be able to regularly contend for big ten titles going forward. I hope I'm wrong, but I just don't see us competing with the elites going forward

Don't get me wrong, Cam seems like an asshole, but (and I realize this isn't going to be a popular opinion) I don't see a college kid taking money as indicative of moral corruption.
