Isn't it the norm for the vast majority of all GREAT players to hang on too long?

Comment 06 May 2015

I'm not sure the golf rules apply to the NFL.

I might have my facts screwed up on this next comment, but I'm sure someone will let me know >>>> didn't the refs take out the balls in question for examination after the game? I don't think they could suspend Brady in the middle of the 2nd quarter under the suspicion the balls were deflated on purpose.

so, we break even financially, but the other B1G schools make $6m each? I'll take the natty, but it seems there should be some percentage allocated to help cover participation costs. (yes I realize the indirect benefit far out weights the hard dollar cost)

If in the SEC, losing to #1 and not winning division is sure fire ticket to NC game. #RematchBamaLSU

I'm all for it. I want the best coaches (and teachers) connecting with as many different kids as possible. If it's not economically feasible for the students to come to the teachers, then have the teachers go to the students. Why would anyone oppose the transfer of knowledge?

if the teachers and coaches preceive the direct and indirect benefits worth the effort, then do it. If not, don't. But don't complain or restrict others from helping out.  

Institutions give money and time to all different groups. Who is to say where someone else should focus their attention?

I'm sure that's what they think. 
If they move away now, it will be easier to be left out of a change in the future. They won't have as big of a bargaining chip next time everyone is at the table. They should be fighting for more exposure, not less. 

Comment 23 Apr 2015

I believe if they bow out now, the game will pass them by. It won't happen overnight, but they (Rose Bowl) will become irrelevant, ala NIT post-season BB tournament.

I thought that trailer was Superman vs. Batman, isn't Ben Affleck "Daredevil". 

I know its the movies, but, you only get to play one superhero! Choose wisely!

My breakfast sandwich tasted weird today. Must have been because I was reading CBSsports.com and not 11w.

There is no right answer for that question, unless you just dodge it all together. 
Who among us wouldn't take the cash offered to coach our alma mater??

I don't like the guy, but you have to give him credit for being able to negotiate his contract.

The picture at the top of this page promotes this image.

"The thing that can hurt a team like this the most is rock stars," said Perry. "We had some guys who just came along in the blink of an eye. That is hard to handle because everybody's going to be patting you on the back. 

Who is Perry talking about?? Does this site play into and promote the Rock Star image of one or our players??

Not interested in the football aspect, but for Rivals to open up a new group of consumers for page hits and premium accounts is brilliant. So many more grade school players, crazy parents paying to track their children and their competition.  Someone at Rivals deserves a big fat check/bonus this year! The new revenue stream is huge!

your rule would be have to be made by the NBA, as a deterrent for players deciding not to go to drafted team. I would propose the NCAA allow the flexibility for players to do just the opposite. If they don't like a team, don't get drafted, etc, then come on back and play college ball. NBA wouldn't like this and would have to adjust. Right now. the NBA's rule is negatively impacting the NCAA with the one and done. NCAA should attempt to gain some control back.
