Dwayne Wade played in 54 games during the regular season last year, and played rested every time he touched the court. Even with that much rest, he was basically toast by the end of the Conference Finals. In the Finals, I, a 6 foot flat 28 year old who's 40 pounds over weight and last played competitive basketball in the 5th grade would have been better on defense than he was.
Statistically, if you remove Lebron, the 2007 Cavs had a better team than last year's Heat during the Finals and it wasn't going to get better.

This was a really fantastic question, and I'm glad you asked it and I was able to read it.

I have to imagine the big five cutting football participation would have a seriously negative impact on the number of bowl games that are played every year (not saying this is negative as in a bad thing, just negative as in there'd be fewer). Additionally, the windfalls that small schools score when they play a big five school is usually pretty significant, sometimes millions of dollars. I'm assuming the creation of a Division IV or whatever you want to call it would result in a reduction of those games, as well.
Not participating in Football would take a lot of money out of a lot of pockets. That's a pretty strong motivator.

No, they can't actually do that. It wouldn't just be a PR nightmare, it would be considered wrongful termination due to unreasonable demands (you also can't fire someone because they won't go live on the Sun).
Employers can't actually do whatever the hell they want in this country. They used to, and then they abused it and we passed laws making that illegal.

There are more ways to ingest marijuana than smoking it.

I've been wondering that all day. I have no idea.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||Well, to be fair, we didn't||
Well, to be fair, we didn't know at this time last year that Michigan was going to field the worst offensive line in their history and arguably the most underperforming offensive line in the history of NCAA football. And they still finished two plays (a field goal and a 2 point conversion) away from winning nine games.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||In addition to the fact that||
In addition to the fact that the knowledge of how it would play out changes things, there's also a precedent of organizations retaliating against people attempting to unionize and by keeping the vote secret, if the ruling is overturned there's no reason to retaliate when nobody knows if they voted no.

What's in a name?
About 20 letters, apparently.

I live just outside GR and I really don't like the Dutch.
Of course, I am Dutch, so I've got a nice inside view of just how horrible we can be.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||I kind of disagree. I mean,||
I kind of disagree. I mean, sure, I'd like Michigan to be dominant, but an NCAA landscape where it's possible for most teams to beat most other teams on any given Saturday makes for much better college football in the long run.

It's a mod for the PC version of NBA 2K14, but it's better than nothing. It's incredibly detailed, with 30 replacement teams (all tourney teams) and works perfectly for everything I've tried it with. You can find it here.

I'm kind of pissed at Derrick Gordon.
Because he hit three straight 3 pointers last night on March Madness 2K14 and I lost to UMASS by 2.
Was there something else he was in the new for lately?

And yet giving a college athlete a stick of chewing gum could fall afoul of the NCAA's rules.

Sure, and I'm not saying it's an easy job, not by any stretch. Like many things, though, it's not very hard to do a rather crummy job of it, but Saturday's broadcast couldn't see rather crummy with a telescope and a step ladder. A single stationary camera that showed the whole field and didn't move the enitre time would've been a step up from Saturday's broadcast, and you don't even need a person to make that feed happen.

I did some basic camera work in high school. It's not that hard. I could've done a better filming of the spring scrimmage with a go-pro and one eye shut.

As ridiculous as it sounds, this is basically the reasoning behind unpaid internships.
Coincidentally, those are rapidly becoming more and more illegal, too.

Northwestern's ruling almost certainly sets them up on a collision course for the SCOTUS. Ohio or any other state putting laws on the books now isn't going to change much of what's going to happen, if it changes anything at all.

Well, that's because unions already collectively bargained for those things. They're now considered non-negotiable.
|14 weeks 22 hours ago||Forming a union is...not||
Forming a union is...not entitlement. I'm not even sure how you could reach that conclusion. Forming a union is leveling the playing field between individual workers, who have very little bargaining power and management, which has a great deal of bargaining power. It also provides a significant increase in quality of work life for every other employee within a city with a major employment union due to the competition for workers with the union shop.

First time throwing outside in months after a busted ankle and 20 MPH winds are the kinds of things that will make a QB look rough around the edges.

Scholarships aren't considered earnings. It's really that simple -- nobody is paying taxes on that money, so it's not a payment. Scholarships are actually just a very high-quality form of employee discount.
