    That's about what it would take, and I seriously doubt that it would ever happen, because even the sure-fire NFL picks won't risk not being able to play and either getting passed over or having to wait until "three years out of high school" before being daft eligible without getting to play before then.

    Personally i think the kids should get some pocket money. Even if it's only 10 bucks an hour or something.

    Thats because coaching salaries exploded in last 20 years. Any professionalization would entail massive paycuts to staff that would be redirected to the athletes... and then the Urbans and Sabans would bounce for NFL and probably stay there.

    Ok, give me your list of the twenty "survivors." I can tell you right now that Indiana, Purdue, Minnesota, Rutgers and Maryland need help from the general fund. Ol' Miss may suck at football, but they pull in the fans for their home and road games and their SEC money, while not as much as the Big Ten's bundle to individual schools, is within range.

    what hotels in America doesn’t already offer free wifi to its guests?

    i mean i’ve been in some really shady places that may or may not rent rooms by the hour. and even they had free wifi (and vouchers for penicillin shots).

    most of the SEC turns a profit. especially if we just counting football.

    LSU not only turns a profit for entire athletic department, but the department is also 100% self sufficient (no tuition money, no tax money) and donates a few million to academic side every year.

    i don’t have the numbers, but i’d venture to guess most of the SEC turns profits for overall athletic departments.

    mainly because most SEC schools carry fewer athletic programs than lot of other conferences. Lsu carries 21 varsity teams. tOSU by comparison carries 37.

    that’s an extra 16 programs that don’t turn profits sucking from the money makers.

    No offense intended, just pointing out how to properly evaluate the exhaustive nature of most expense charts for college athletics.

    And no offense taken. And, an MBA in accounting can lead to a lifelong career in hiding the pea under one of three thimbles so the auditor can't find the money trail. But sometimes the pea is of such a size that it won't fit under any of the thimbles.

    From Business Update, October 2016:
    "While it is no secret that there is a lot of money being made from college sports, that money is not even close to being evenly distributed. The 231 NCAA Division I schools with data available generated a total of $9.15 billion in revenue during the 2015 fiscal year. But while there are 24 schools that make more than $100 million, most make much less."

    From USA Today, May 2013:

    "Of the 231 schools, 76% make less than $50 million in athletics revenue. If we take it a step further, nearly half of the Division I schools (44%) make less than $20 million
    Athletics departments getting subsidy money when they are self-sufficient "raises a major question about institutions, which are always trying to play catch-up in the athletic realm, relying on institutional and government subsidies and student fees to make ends meet at a time when we have very limited resources," says Anne D. Neal, president of the American Council of Trustees and Alumni. "And that raises questions as to whether institutions are paying attention to their primary purpose, which is education."

    LSU, Nebraska, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Penn State, Purdue and Texas were the only schools to report no subsidy money in 2012. Michigan reported receiving less than $260,000: $16,000 in federal work study funding and the remainder from the university to cover the salary of academic services director Phil Hughes, according to athletics spokesman Dave Ablauf.

    $71 MILLION SURPLUS: NCAA hits record number in 2012

    All 23 of the self-sufficient schools are from conferences whose champions automatically qualify for the Bowl Championship Series, which makes sense because that's where the money is.

    However, other programs in these conferences remained far from self sufficient in 2012. Rutgers, for instance, spent $28 million more than it generated — a deficit it covered with about $18.5 million from the school and $9.5 million in student fees. This constituted a slight improvement over 2011, when Rutgers spent $28.5 million more than it generated."

    Thank god he knows, at least. It’d be a shame if he just put out a registry and was ruled ineligible. Who would even think about something like that? Kudos to him for even finding out. Maybe they are told this in some kind of eligibility orientation thing? Idk. So dumb.

    Then again, maybe UVA compliance jumped the gun and asked him to take it down. Mark Emmert denied the NCAA requesting it.

    Somebody said it. I’d like to know who and where it came from. It sounded completely idiotic but I also won’t lie, I wasn’t surprised. It’s just something nobody would ever think of.

    NCAA should suspend for even having a registry. What is this, a goddamned baby shower?
