I thought it was assumed that they are "employees" going forward when we start talking about paying players. Although it would probably be more nuanced, as I talk about above in my other reply. In the end it would depend on what labor laws would actually protect them if we went this route.

I'm not fully versed on the topic so I won't go much further then to throw this out:
This story is what prompted my analogy. The key point being that "wages must be provided in 'lawful money of the United States or check.'" (In Pennsylvania and some other states, at least. Apparently that's not explicitly stated in labor laws in every state).
And, this circles back to what was brought up below. Once we start talking about paying players I would assume they would be considered employees or at least partially be treated as employees. I suppose it would probably be finessed in such a way that they were considered more like unpaid interns than employees in regards to labor laws, but I don't really want to dive down that deeply past stating that as a counter point.

Holiday, Sun, and Alamo are great bowl games.

The NFL would still scout players if SportsCenter didn't exist.

Working at a McDonalds would be voluntary too, that doesn't mean they don't have to pay you. They can't just buy a four star hotel, require to you live there to work at McDonalds, and then say living there is your compensation.
|1 day 15 hours ago||Why would we have to pay||
Why would we have to pay field hockey at all? They don't generate revenue at all. The "paying players what they're worth" argument would entail that field hockey has to actually pay their own way to play, just like club sports.

Because who likes going to Indy for the B1G Championship game anyways?
Imagine Michigan if Devin was out the entire year and then go back and judge Pelini's year.

It's about what's socially acceptable.

I believe they wanted to encourage Alabama to complete more than 7 forward passes to win the game.

I mean, it's about time Oregon stood up to anybody. Good practice for the bowl game.

Tressell never won a national title at OSU without Dantonio. If you want to attribute any and all success to those around him then there's really no reason to continue discussing this.

Mark Dantonio won a NC as defensive coordinator at OSU and Narduzzi has spent his entire life as a DC under Mark Dantonio. I'll take Dantonio between the two of them.

I didn't set my car on fire before either of those games, but I'm not sure I can conclude that it will help simply because we did poorly when I didn't do it.

There's really no reason to believe that.

All you have to do is just keep pushing the time frame you're looking at back until you get the results you want to see, apparently.

They lost when they gave up a chance to put distance between themselves and ND in the 2nd half by calling a reverse pass (interception) instead of just hammering Langford into ND and when they trotted a cold Maxwell out to save the day on the last drive. They got 2 or 3 bad PI calls, but they lost it on their own accord.

What ever happened to the "ಠ_ಠ" poster? That might be my favorite parody account. Either that or the Terrelle Pryor one.

I agree wholeheartedly. I would take it a step further to say that it's MUCH more about the o line than it is the running back as far as how the running game goes.

As far as rooting interest, Michigan State and Ohio State going to the BCS bumps us up the ladder. Although it seems like that's a forgone conclusion at this point according to the articles being written this week.
