Harvard's endowment is in the billions I think; it would not substantially change its bank balance by adding "media money" (and yes, "insane" would be the word for media money directed at public interest in Ivy football).
Did you actually READ the article? It describes the change in Harvard athletics as being driven by the school's policy to offer free rides to EVERY student with a family income less than $60,000. This is not a device to buy athletes, it is offered to every single student with that income profile.
Yeah sure money corrupts; in this case, however, the money is being used to offer all kinds of amazing students an opportunity at a debt-free education. At the "big boy" schools the football players get this kind of deal but not the future physicists, teachers, novelists, etc.

Honest to pete, even if everyone agrees the guy can't leave fast enough, how can a poor "radio journalist" cover his minutes if he doesn't fabricate a controversy?
Someone has to be the idiot on sports chat shows or there's nothing to watch/listen to.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Who said that? nobody!||
OP didn't say Malzone was going to turn us around the minute he arrived on campus; merely implied that we would like to have him around.

Really having a hard time finding the source of this

Have they ever ever been ranked before in the history of the game?

Brian and Ace et all report hits ESPN Big 10 football blog updated at 7
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Well here's the thing||
It could presumably be DISproven by releasing DBs emails of that period.
|8 weeks 18 hours ago||Why in the world||
Do you think Ross is such a complete idiot as to continue to support a failing director and coach because they're, like, his pals and because he said (before Shanegate) he would? Are YOU that dim well then probably he isn't either.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Not this||
Sorry. Fans supporting athletics are nice, but they are not why we're here. Why Brandon matters is because he reflects poorly on the primary (academic) mission of the school. If the non-U fans were mad and signed your petition, but no one within the university or alums cared, this would already be over by now.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||Really money does NOTHING||
unless you have a crapton more of it than everybody else. We have a lot, but we can't dominate other elite programs with compensation. A big ego would presumably rather choose something to turn around that will not be a stinkbomb for the foreseeable future.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||Faculty and staff, too||
Have it it, employees
|8 weeks 2 days ago||Boondoggle?||
I do not think that word means what you think it means. But yeah.

You happy now or you still want to fight with someone on your side

Probably sit in the same area, for less money, just stubhubbing
|10 weeks 3 hours ago||Niceness.||
It's Utah's secret weapon. Welcome and thanks for the nice words.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||You're on!||
Good causes all
|10 weeks 3 days ago||$30 sez Gardner throws no interceptions this weekend||
If I lose I'll give 30 to Keeping Growing Detroit, which provides urban gardening services in the city (and employs at least one huge Wolverines fan).
|11 weeks 3 hours ago||Unless he plays football for Michigan||
He is too OT for an in-season thread.
|11 weeks 3 hours ago||Hey get your Groupons here for Saturday's game||
No kidding I got an "Amazon Local" offer this morning (think Groupon with an Amazon logo slapped on it) for a "special package" for the Miami game
$65 includes ticket hot dog beverage t-shirt and program
which, as we all know, is WAY LESS THAN LOYAL SEASON TICKET HOLDERS PAY.
So, yes, we are at Desperation Defcon 6 or something.
Really, Dave? YOU ARE COUPONING OUR FOOTBALL GAME?
|11 weeks 5 days ago||Maybe we give extra points||
For being a good guy,

So you don't have to take her to the men's room.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||That's what we thought last year||
When we took Sloane to Akron and made her stay and stay and stay.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||No||
Closed. And Ann Arbor Saline too.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Low expectations = more fun||
The following are my observations based on taking my grandniece, the awesome Sloane, to game starting at about age 3.
|17 weeks 16 hours ago||Geez I thought you said Joe Biden||
I would really like to see Joe BIden split playing time with Desmond Morgan.
|17 weeks 1 day ago||Oh hon||
What was on your plate was way more important. Y'all are the best sports writers out there and we will wait as long as it takes.
