And here is the response I posted to you earlier "When looking at the study above that jackfu cited to show that budgets are demonstrably false is not a study on athletic departments as a whole but only revenue generating sports. It notes specifically that there is money if you reduce the salaries of coaches and stop renovating facilities. In this hypothetical scenario where revenue generating athletes are paid, athletic departments will have to make a decision, kept paying your coaches and upgrading your facilities to keep your revenue generating sports strong or cut your men's and women's rowing teams." Further, the fact that some analyst said so in a report to help support a lawsuit doesn't really mean a lot. I know from first hand experience that you can get a lot of people with good credentials to write whatever you want for lawsuits. It does not mean its the truth.
I don't think people are concern trolling about the fans of rowing. They (I?) are just saying that it is a possible or likely consequence that a bunch of other student athletes will lose scholarships. If you are okay with that I can't disagree but it's hard to act like it won't happen.

Whether or not you need to pay the participants in lacrosse rowing wrestling etc, it would not make financial sense to keep those programs around at the expense of weakening your revenue generating sports. To stay competitive when every school is allowed to pay a player the same maximum amount, coaches and facilities will be the selling points just as they are now.
I believe this is the concern people have with paying football players and basketball players. It is nice to imagine a world where you would just cut the football coaches salary to pay for the rowing team, but when the coach leaves and the players won't come to support your only two revenue streams you will lose all financial stability.
Shannon is a really good defender but he over pursues at the top of the key and allows dribble penetration way more often than craft. He can do this somewhat because he is surrounded by good defensive talent but I think there have been a lot of plays where Shannon's man beats him with a crossover and the rest of the defense is forced to collapse with good results for the opposition.
Because they didnt lose a single game when he played quarterback for the team. he didn't miss a single B1G game, and his statistics are likely better than any other quarterback in the league.
Hes a RS Frosh and considered to be the top 1-2 QB prospects this year, let alone next year.
Yea I was gonna say the same thing. Terrelle is still the starter and he took the first team walk through but he is a bit banged up
I also think that Sparty will be vulnerable on those corner blitzes. Braxton has seemed to have a zone read quick pass option all season that would have been wide open on the corner blitz in the youtube video above. If Sparty wants to blitz corners, they better be prepared to roll their safety over or else its gonna be 8-10 yards for Smith and Philly all day.
I was bothered by the fact that the announcers were giving DAT crap for smiling on the sidelines when the game wasnt over. Meanwhile, praising Huff for crying when they still had a chance. It aint over till its over (or you are down 30 to Bama).
What made their statements last night even more absurd was that they were saying this with 5-6 minutes left in the game. I didnt listen to them after the game ended and Stanford didnt close very well.
I liked that we had 8 players with carries who averaged 7.7 yards per carry or more.
Punctuation and spell check are your friend.
Could also be Vonn Bell
DO YOU SMELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL WHAT THE VRABO.....................................IS COOKING?
I think it is actually regularly considered that tickets are a freely revocable license. You actually really have no "ownership rights" over your tickets other than what the licensor (TAMU) says you have. I am 100% in agreement that this is a crappy thing to do to your students, but from a legal/ownership standpoint, I really do not see much wrong with it.
I agree with you about Michigan, but the other ones I am not so sure. I think we would still be favored over a rebuilding wiscy squad and probably about even at NW
No, you were just being an ass for no reason, so I thought you should get called out.
I really don't think you have to talk about religion to discuss how funny it is that in Alabama it is necessary for religious organizations to issue no-spoiler alerts for their major holidays.
Some people don't have twitter/don't like twitter and so it is nice for them to be able to see it in a convenient form. Start your own blog if it bothers you so much that the writers like to share eachother's work.
Four words: Violation of team rules.
Sorry, I meant singled out re: the article linked. I understand why it was on this site. 2 great charities to give to though
Did anybody else read this article as saying that the money was given to these universities specifically for gifts to charities? Not sure why OSU was singled out for praise if that was the case. Either way, always good to pay it forward.
If you continue reading the article, he does do some comparisons between miller and pryor in the Tressel/Fickell offense. He also does some comparisons to passing % and rushing stats to Smith, Tebow, and Josh Harris that are worth looking at.
Even better, somebody called out his error and he responded by deleting any information about winning any bowl games. It now says this
...ignoring the fact that Ohio State spent the previous decade totally dominating its conference, only coming up short -- yes, often in embarrassing fashion -- in bowl games.
That is some expert trolling.
