You realize they're taxed on where they play each week.

True, they have to pay taxes in all the away-game states. But I believe they're only taxed in those states on a portion of their income (maybe only NFL salary). I don't think the away-game states can tax non-game income -- so Zeke's Nike money should be safe, but some of Bosa's METRx money is headed to Sacramento.

If you're implying what I'm inferring from your comment, I think you may be looking at it too cynically. The "something interesting" very well could be a woman's smile or her eyes, or the puppy she's hugging, or that she's eating at his favorite restaurant. He won't know if she's "someone interesting" unless/until he meets her and gets to know her.

I saw the tweet but before I could follow the link --

So ... for some reason, on this post (and only this post), there are no helmet stickers or arrows to up/downvote for me. Anyone else have that issue? I'm logged in and I looked at other posts, and the HSs and arrows are there. Anybody know what gives?

I agree with the idea, though for a different reason -- I'd want to go late first-round to be picked by a better team. As great as it would be to be a top 5 pick -- along with the money that that entails -- you're likely saddled with an awful team around you, and you're probably going to be losing more than winning. Go late first-round, give up a little cash on the front end but end up on a playoff contender -- that's the way I'd want to go.

Somehow, the late tip on TBS wasn't even the worst decision the NCAA made during the current school year, with the CFB Playoff games on New Year's Eve (it's going to happen again this year!) instead of New Year's Day.

I think the NCAA is only responsible for one of those bad decisions. The CFP Committee is the group responsible for screwing up the football championship.

Moreover, if you sit down and give an interview to, it's hard to complain later about the situation becoming so public. Granted, is not ESPN, but it was an interview that he knew would be posted online. So he knew it would be public. Maybe he should go play basketball for Duke -- he and Coach K really know how to craft an apology....

Gene should have non-apologized-- 

My comments at a soccer press conference yesterday were not meant to discredit our rival. To UM student-athletes & my good friend Warde Manuel, I regret that you were offended by my statements. We at OSU look forward to continuing the greatest rivalry in collegiate football.
