That’s the fun part of conference alignment! You just take and you don’t have to give anything back.

It feels like Stanford-Oregon is gonna go 5 OT

Iowa! You idiots!

Is there any benefit to waiting on the 2 point try there? 

You're better off knowing if a field goal will be useful or not IMO. 

09/22/2018 - 10:00pm An onside kick recovery in…

An onside kick recovery in which the return team touches the ball but does not possess it is a muff. In that event the kicking team does not get to advance the ball, as they would if the return team fumbles. 

That's what I'm referencing.

Also TCU.

Iowa not taking this timeout is so, so B1G.

I generally like VT (Fred Jackson's kid, a Wheatley, Beamerball was fun, they gave us that nonsense Sugar Bowl, etc.) but this is fantastic. 

A transitive property disaster for the ACC.

Liberty bombed Old Dominion 52-10 three weeks ago!

Who had the worse non-conference performance: the B1G or the ACC?

09/22/2018 - 6:07pm Also a rule at every level,…

Also a rule at every level, not a weird college football rule.

Difference is between a muff and a fumble. You can advance a fumble on a kick return, you can't advance a muff. This is why successful onside kicks stop with the recovery.

Averaged 58 net!

70-10 is the worst loss in Nebraska history. Just sayin'

Heady play by Hutch to induce the 3rd down run attempt.

Why does DPJ even return punts?

FS1 announcers are contractually obligated to exaggerate the drama on each Metellus interception.

This nomad Washington State QB is pretty good.

So FSU is what, the 5th best college team in Florida right now?

38-17 good guys.

I think he'll be a head coach again based on the fact he's worn so many hats here (LBs, safeties, special teams, recruiting coordinator).

Running a football team is an operations gig moreso than is fun to imagine and Partridge has gone out of his way to get as much organizational experience as he can.

Michigan is gonna kill these guys. 

09/20/2018 - 1:39pm The BTN clock showing clear…

The BTN clock showing clear time left as various BTN announcers repeatedly suggested it was score-or-half was a bit ridiculous. Sonny Dykes should have demanded a kickoff!

I took it as "let's make this a high drama moment" but given it was Metellus, concern trolling seems a reasonable interpretation. 

09/18/2018 - 8:30pm Holy shit! You guys!

Holy shit! You guys!

09/18/2018 - 4:15pm Stanley vs. University of…

Stanley vs. University of Southern California is the decision I've seen referenced. 

09/18/2018 - 2:44pm I'm not advocating there,…

I'm not advocating there, just how I think it will most likely play out given the parties and dynamics in play. It's a lot more likely the P5 splits off and sets a standard revenue sport salary than we get NFL-style free agency. Again, many solutions would work.

My comment below was specific to title IX. As for your next why? Because revenue sport labor is more valuable.

09/18/2018 - 2:34pm The courts have already…

The courts have already heard Title IX arguments on employee athletic salaries and ruled higher revenue sport employees can make more money without violating Title IX.

Didn't go all the way to the Supreme Court so I suppose there still could be some question out there (also not a lawyer).

So you probably have to call them employees.

09/18/2018 - 2:27pm The laughter has subsided,…

The laughter has subsided, but your continued use of near-endless question marks did make me chuckle. The taxes mention is because that's another similar argument others in your corner on this issue throw out there. 

All of your initial questions are details with multiple potential solutions that could get hammered out rather simply, as they are in all other labor issues. Here's one set of answers that work, there are many others.

What is required of a college player in return for their salary?  Play sports and go to school When it is earned?  Monthly Do they even have to take classes?  Yes, a common stipulation for other campus jobs If they stop playing football, do they still get paid? Yes if injury retirement and still enrolled If not, do they still take classes?   Up to them but on scholarship if medical'd, same as now. Do they have to pass their classes to make money?  Yes to maintain eligibility Why? Because that's the contract Is there any educational component whatsoever to the arrangement?  Yes Four year or one year salaries?  Works either way What if they are never good enough to play, do they still get paid or do they have to pay the money back? They're paid for labor this is a non issue Do all athletes get paid the same amount of money, if not, how do you determine who gets paid what?  P5 schools will need to come up with standard salaries because they're not going to free market this Can other schools offer current players on a team more money to play for them?  Why not? Yes but salaries are standardized so this would only impact low level to P5 transfers

09/18/2018 - 2:14pm Title IX is a red herring…

Title IX is a red herring NCAA members hide behind to pay nobody. 

Michigan doesn't have to pay KBA what they pay Beilein and they wouldn't need to compensate women athletes the same way they compensate revenue sports men. 

09/18/2018 - 2:08pm It's hilarious when people…

It's hilarious when people go to how much do they get paid? What do they do to earn that money? Who pays taxes?, etc. to support the idea you can't pay players.

These are questions for every job and they're not problems for the rest of the world!

09/17/2018 - 5:50pm At the least they should…

At the least they should lower prices on a day like Saturday.

The forward thinking thing to do would be to make Michigan stadium super conducive to refillables but that can be an operations nightmare if you don’t design the space for it. 

09/17/2018 - 1:32pm You'd think we'd get to…

You'd think we'd get to something like Year 3 A.K. (After Korn) before this fanbase gets back to taking good QB play for granted.

So he's gonna win B1G DL of the year with 1/4 of Chase's production this year?

Notable that DPJ scored his two long TDs out of the slot. I think we may have found that MSU quarters murderer we've needed for so long.

This would be perfect if it was a Nathan Peterman start.

Regardless it was a total dick move. First we had to listen to Millen call for a rollout on 4th and goal from the 2-inch line, then we had a commercial.

Hope his QBs try to outhit Bush.

They scored on what, every drive after the first quarter?

Other than a perhaps-misguided attempt to establish the run early vs looks you should bomb, I don’t know what there is to complain about on that side of the ball today.

I saw approx. 473 trailers for the new Bradley Cooper movie on the BTN online feed it was bruuuuutal.
