I'd rather have Kentucky win the natty 20 years in a row than watch MSU get another one.

I actually love the first down passing. I've had enough zone runs to the left side on first down to last me 10 lifetimes.

Yup... just like ND..
Both teams have 3-4 games a year in which the lines make absolutely no sense. Pretty much free money...

Hmmm.. you're replying to something that got deleted right? I don't quite follow.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||So many players on that||
So many players on that recruiting class got paid... chances are eventually one of them (or someone involved with the bagmen) is going to get in trouble with the law. The problem with the NCAA is that it has no ability to gather evidence unless it is surrendered to them voluntarily. Law enforcement has to make the case for them.

Ummm.. what? How is what I said racist.
It might be a stereotypical statement to say deep southern states tend to have more racist people in them... but that's certainly not a racist statement.

This game will definitely get vacated in a few years.

No state/city is completely racist.... but if you're a racist and you're looking for a state to live in..... Well.. let's just say you could do a lot worse than Mississippi and Alabama. lol

Lance Thomas purchased 100k worth of jewelry his senior year at Duke. He made a 30k down payment for it. If that's not fishy, I don't know what is.
Only reason NCAA didn't get involved is no one would talk.

That would be stupid. Organization has to be sure about what happened and get their lawyers involved before making a decision like that.

The dagger used in S1 in the attempted assassination of Bran was made of valyrian steel.

That's not true, MDs are highest followed by dentists. Lawyers and finance workers are pretty high up the list too.
No one knows the real reason. Probably all the hoops people have to jump through makes the professions self selecting for a certain type of personality.

You should be ashamed of yourself.
|19 weeks 3 days ago||The truth is... and this||
The truth is... and this might be a tough pill to swallow for a lot of people... that we really can't compete with those programs anymore. At least not on a yearly basis. Hard to achieve recruiting parity when your home state has less than half the talent of Florida, Ohio, Texas, Alabama, Louisiana, ect. There's going to be years when things line up and we're able to be competitive vs those schools, but expecting to go .500 vs them (recruiting and on the field) is honestly unreasonable. :(

It seems like most prejudices are unacceptable on this board, but everyone's cool with fat shaming. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
|19 weeks 3 days ago||The only one that comes to||
The only one that comes to mind is actually Lloyd Carr. Say what you will about him, but his players loved him, no doubt about that.
|19 weeks 3 days ago||For being such a math-centric||
For being such a math-centric sport, I don't understand how MLB owners/managers prioritize their payroll. It seems like they always pay players based on what they've done instead of what they'll potentially do. Every time one of those huge contracts comes around, everyone knows the player's not worth it.... except for the GMs.
|19 weeks 4 days ago||When they say "education"||
When they say "education" they don't mean university rankings in most cases. What they're talking about is academic support staff, graduation rates, ect.

Eat a few bags of sugar free chocolate or gummy bears.

|20 weeks 6 days ago||Yeah, pick the one or two||
Yeah, pick the one or two sports that are not supported by universities and focus your argument on those exceptions. 80% of American medal winners in the London olympics were NCAA athletes. A big portion of the money that went into train those athletes came from the universities they attended. If you take that away the government isn't going to step in to fill the gap and a lot of those athletes won't be able to afford coaching+going to college+feeding themselves+tutoring because they won't have any scholarships or special concessions at school because of their status as student athletes.
I mean... if you don't care about USA's performance in the olympics that fine, it's a fair viewpoint to have; but to pretend that eliminating olympic sports from a lot of athletic departments won't heavily impact the athletes that will be left without a scholarship? Jeez...
BTW, I wouldn't brag about figure skating if I were you, that's not a sport USA dominates. The Russians are much better, both historically and currently. Maybe colleges not supporting it has something to do with it.
|21 weeks 3 hours ago||Well, it's fairly simple.||
Well, it's fairly simple. Take away the millions that the universities invest in these athletes, don't replace it with anything, see how it goes. I mean... where do you expect that lost money to come from? Congress? You can't compare our model to China's or Russia's because they fund their athletes directly from a very early age. Here that will never happen.
|21 weeks 4 hours ago||Because it wouldn't be||
Because it wouldn't be basketball and football that would get cut. The first sports to go would be the men's olympic sports because they don't bring in money, and then the women's olympic sports because if you don't have the men's teams then you don't need the women's teams to balance it out.
|21 weeks 4 hours ago||Academically, comparing||
Academically, comparing Rutgers and Maryland with Kansas and Mizzou is like comparing U of M with Western or State. They'd both be at the bottom of the conference with Nebraska by a comfortable margin.
Also, I'm pretty sure Maryland is closer to Michigan than Nebraska and Kansas, but don't quote me on that one.

If the universities start cutting sports, you can kiss being competitive at the Olympics goodbye.
