I'm a Michigan alum, and I generally agree with most of what he said. I disagree with many of your answers.
I'm getting frustrated with people assuming their views represent Michigan fan/alum orthodoxy and anyone who disagrees is a troll.

In response to more than one comment up-thread:
Presumably, the revenue that NFL teams bring in is partly due to brand goodwill as well. Which might be why the article above used the 47% standard from the NFL's collective bargaining agreement. Obviously this won't be exact given the huge differences between the NFL and the NCAA, but it's a workable enough heuristic in place of employing an army of accountants to figure out precise figures.

Note: the comment you responded to didn't put forth an argument about whether players ought to be paid. It put forth an argument about valuation.

I think we're getting star happy. Might be experiencing star dilution. I get that our "stars" would be unquestioned stars on other teams, but the star system becomes unhelpful as a means to evaluate stand-outs if they're all starred.
For example, what happens if we played a loaded offense? It would be a team of stars v. a team of stars, which would defeat the purpose of stars altogether.

He said "drop," not commit. As always, I will assume the least exciting thing so I don't have a chance at getting disappointed. He's announcing he's going to Arby's for lunch today.

Would you say you trust him to do the things a cornerback should be doing? Maybe we could come up with a title for a player like that.
Like trusted player. Or trusted football guy. Ah, shoot- none of those quite sound right.

I demand greater Stribling recognition in the KFaTAotW Standings. What does the man have to do!?

I have watched all of their games this season from start to finish.
They've looked woeful in all of their games.

I am a Michigan fan who graduated from Michigan.
What's with your complex that anything not according to the party line must be attacked?

Here, I'll post again so you can double up. He hasn't coached since the 80's, I wish we'd stop talking about him so much.

Fun fact: an MSU grad was on the short list to replace Rehnquist.

Bo is dead, I don't care about his outdated wishes.

1. This is hilarious
2. I might not think so if I had a kid getting run over like that- that kind of physical mismatch probably isn't safe
3. Reminds me of Penn State trying to tackle Pitt

I'm not sure how to read you. Is this faux combativeness because an us-vs-them mindset is fun for you, or do you genuinely think we shouldn't accommodate opposing fans?
|6 weeks 4 days ago||I don't understand how this||
I don't understand how this looks bad for Oklahoma. Playing a football against them doesn't mean you have to be petty and difficult to deal with. It's a pep rally that won't affect the game, and they're just being hospitable hosts.

Using nicknames for players weirds me out. It's overly familiar.

US News & World Report. To be fair, I would have downvoted that one too. Or at least rolled my eyes really hard.

Nope. LS&A class of 2014.

Because I don't think it's a very good ranking, I'm skeptical of the utility of college rankings to begin with, I don't like how often we (as a fan base) bring up academics when talking about football, and it's kinda lame to post this ranking over and over again when there's a more widely accepted ranking that doesn't list us as high (it feels like cherry picking)
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Hi! I would (and did)||
Hi! I would (and did) downvote this. I downvote these ranking every time I see them posted.
Feel free to downvote me back.

I don't understand why people do JD/MBAs. The people in my school's JD/MBA program have enjoyed pretty good law firm placement, but so have the regular old JDs. No idea what value the MBA adds to the JD.
The JD adds even less value to the MBA, I'd bet.

It would be paying players for playing college football. Hard to police from a monitoring perspective, but still against the rules.

This sounds like a positve thing to me.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||I'm not an economist so I||
I'm not an economist so I don't have very sophisticated views on this. I don't think it's such a foreign or controversial idea that sometimes what's most economically efficient isn't always what's best from a moral perspective, though. That's not emotional mish mash. Minimum wage might be an example of what I mean.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||It only always comes down to||
It only always comes down to economics if you accept that the market price is automatically where the price ought to be.

I think it's pretty clear she isn't making an economic argument. Many in this thread are just sort of shouting past her.
