    Jim Delany should die of gonnorhea and rot in hell.

    being a student athlete only matters when we are trying to justify not giving them some of the billions of dollars they make for other people

    ORD_Buckeye Wrong glass, Sir.

    But they don't generate billions of dollars for other people. Net profitability for all combined FBS college athletic departments--and to a lesser extent--even the football programs alone is negative. Only a minority schools operate their football programs in the black and only a sliver of that number operate their entire athletic departments in the black.

    You want to pay these guys, fine. But then they get NOTHING else. Their tuition comes out of their paychecks. The whole charade of tutoring and "success centers" is shut down, they want to be "employees" "working their way through school" then fine. They can do it just like I did. And, they apply to the university on the same basis as every other student. Mr. 5* linebacker doesn't have a 28 or 29 on his ACT. Enjoy Kent State, motherhoker.

    Just because the schools spend the money on athletics, facility upgrades, stadium expansions, coaching searches, million dollar assistant coach salaries, six figure salaries for coaches who's sport doesn't generate any income, etc, doesn't mean that the football players don't generate plenty of money.

    The TV contracts are worth billions by themselves.

    The NCAA doesn't give two hoots about the student athletes. All the NCAA cares about is the monopolization of student athletes.

    The kids at Northwestern et al are doing it wrong. They don't need a union. They need to file an antitrust suit in federal court.

    Or Ohio State vs. Bowling Green.

    Just sayin'. It would make it easier for me to accord such games the attention they deserve. Plus I could join my regular foursome the following morning after going to bed at halftime.

    Somehow Max, I'm not surprised you're on Delaney's side given the overwhelming reaction by the forum to this stupid idea.

    Evidently the lack of a sarcasm font on the new board has several of you groping for understanding ...

    As I said, it was an obvious part of the game when you posted it....

    Seems to work for me....

    Didn't know you guys couldn't pick up on a joke without its being in italics, but I'll try to keep it in mind. But just so you know,

    I don't think it's a good idea, either.

    I was just eager for an excuse to use that line. As for assuming you were on the opposite side, that would be quite a stretch.

    The Buckeye basketball team did a fine job of ruining my weekend with no assistance from you, thank you very much. :smash:
