|4 weeks 5 days ago||My theory||
They know. If they try to clamp down on this topic it will backfire. The topic becomes financial compensation to the athlete. I think the NCAA knows it will get its teeth kicked in the court of public opinion. Does anyone on this site disagree that the kids should get some walking around money for their time and sacrifice packaged with the ability not to be paid in the off season?
The NCAA has went after the acedemic violation side with much more vigor because no one thinks that is bad.
When you realize that the NCAA is political buerocratic organization with a profit motive it makes sense that they do nothing on this end unless you throw it completely in their face.
NCAA is beholden to ESPN, FOX, CBS and to a certain extent NBC (ND). Why would they want bad publicity, the increased overhead with their financial partners hurt. The biggest booster schools travel the best in most instances because they have a large and active base. If they are not on TV or in bowl games everyone loses and the headlines are written with scandel.

or you have different user names on the boards.
Third time an endzone has been discussed.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||In ministry||
There is a difference between starting a ministry and doing ministry. Being available and sharing your story is vastly different. I am not saying to "hide your light under the bushel basket" but there is a battle hardening and maturation process that needs to take place. When you set out on that mission you need to be lead and discipled yourself.
I have seen many flames snuffed out early because they misinterpreted passion for wisdom.
I don't know much about his support group and such but often it is better to learn under a different ministry that does what he does. I know of several in my area that would welcome him and guide him.
I hope he does great things with his platform. I just think it is a shame when guys get taken out because they were not ready.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||You missed my point||
Do you think he is truly recovered to the point of leading a ministry 30 days out of jail?
He needs more time and supporters need more evidence or he is setting himself up. How is Josh Hamilton doing now adays being a point man for addiction.

That situation scares the hell out of me. It is right to do what they did but can you imagine the guilt if he was able to kill himself or put himself into a situation where he was killed or committed a felony that left him incarcerated for a very long time.
I wish that on no one.
On another note which is not intended to be judgmental but I wish he would wait more than 30 days to start a "ministry". Let your life develop. This is only the beginning. Help others and surround yourself with the right people but your story has only begun. Don't set yourself up to be taken down again when you are just a babe in the walk. He has just now put himself in the public eye and he will have to meet his demons again.
I wish him well and hope he can have the impact that he wants to.

It belongs with Chris Illitch. He is gutting the team.
|10 weeks 1 hour ago||Can't lay off him||
5 yds and not get in his way. Free release was ridiculous
|10 weeks 1 hour ago||Lay off||
way too much room to give Beckham on that play. Game, set and soon to be match
|10 weeks 1 hour ago||Turn it over||
Turn it over on the road inside the five........ can't expect to win when you do that.
Would be just like the Lions to blow the division being up by 2 with 3 to go. Sucked us all in again.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||I suck||
video is funny though

Person went to high school with him and he is an a huge sparty. Said he has been telling Harbaugh and UM to deal with it and move on becasue they lost.
|19 weeks 1 day ago||Riddell||
Has a matte finish.
Need the strap and the visor to finish it though
|24 weeks 45 min ago||spoken||
like a 40+ year fan like myself
|24 weeks 48 min ago||Ebron||
Damn......even he caught one. Now I am really going to be sucked in.
If it is confirmed it will really suck us all in to the abyss
|24 weeks 49 min ago||Stafford||
Looking sharp except for the end zone shot where a back shoulder woudl of been a nice option
Jnes has got to catch that.
|24 weeks 1 hour ago||damn lions||
gonna suck me in again

|24 weeks 6 days ago||Solution||
The diaries contain some good stuff but rarely do I look myself.
Maybe a cross post can be automatically generated on the board as a notice to the board.
|30 weeks 19 hours ago||Fell aprt?||
No one hit a bill hard. Stuff like this happens in baseball. IF they hit ropes and a gap shot I would agree with you. Its not like it was a sharp double and then the outs came on a warning track shot with a couple of screamers just foul.
|30 weeks 19 hours ago||Over 100||
but so what. The new unwritten rule of not letting a starter finish unless he is going for a no no drives me nuts. When you are on then let him finish. Its not like we have Mariano coming out as good as Fran has been.
Not to mention that Todd Jones made an appearance in the announcing booth which had to put bad juju all over any reliever in the game tonight as we saw with Houston.
|30 weeks 19 hours ago||Agree||
I was shocked that he was allowed to finish. I defer to a horse like JV can be when I see he has his good stuff vs not knowing what my closer if going to throw like.
|30 weeks 19 hours ago||IMO the balls part||
is to keep JV in especially in todays era of closers and pitch counts.
|30 weeks 19 hours ago||What if just has something for JV||
He has regained his stuff lately and was great tonight.
|30 weeks 20 hours ago||Cant fault him tonight||
I grew up in the era of complete games. I despise pitch counts and a pull after 7 innings.
I have no problem with letting JV pitch. No ball was hit hard. A reach bloop and a gap shot are things that just happen. Tiger starters have been shafted way more by relievers than the other way around.
I don't support Ausmus and wanted him gone so don't get me wrong here.
