I really hope Archie does not go to Bama. I never want him to leave Dayton, but if he must, I hope it is a top ten program that he leaves for.
Last night was 11W's finest hour. People could have taken this as a joke; but this community reacted with heartfelt concern. The personal stories and offers for help were incredible.
DJ, and the others whom offered personal contact info, words cant say enough.
Got it, thanks.
I have seen this many times and it gives me chills every time. The disdain is palpable, and I love it. After watching his team last year play with the passion it did, and him leading our NC defense I can't help but love the guy.
Am I missing something? What about Darron Lee?
Doesn't help, but when I was a student I went bananas when we were up 28 against bgsu. Stand by my point that many fans are apathetic, and are there for the event, not the passion .
To be sure he has disappointed, but I am Pretty sure we have more problems than him.
too many "fans" who want to go so they can say they went are the ones who can afford the tickets. If you look at the camera shots it seems like a lot of women and business class men. Just my thought.
I laughed and then thought, "no sarcasm font, he couldn't be serious could he?". I chose to believe it was sarcasm and I am still laughing.
I believe congress would have oversight of the DOE, no?
Thought this too. Feel bad for him and actually the whole team losing in front of their home country fans. But really, it is all the fault if the Russian who had the two penalties that resulted in PP scores.
Good points. I don't pretend to know how a rape kit works, but I find it hard to imagine vaginal tearing from consensual sex. That is what court is for I guess; too bad this wasn't fully investigated because it seems the girl was threatened into keeping quiet.
A year ago my wife and I had our first. Little boy, but I was scared to death to have a girl for your same thoughts. The male gender can really be scum at times. Good luck.
I believe people like Pantoni are the difference between how Meyer closes out a class and how Tres closed out classes. Tressel was the king of Ohio, but Meyer and Pantoni take it to a different level.
Jason and 11W staff,
I am late to the thank you party, but I wanted to ensure that you all knew how grateful I am. This is my only place for buckeye news (besides following you on twitter). This place is wonderful, and while the growth has brought in a slightly "different" crowd at times, your work and the generally wonderful community here keeps me coming back. Thank you, thank you for sharing this with us.
While I get your point about the distinction b/w playing amateur athletics and at will employment in labor law, that is not the point I was making. You stated that it was voluntary, and my point was that almost all work that I can think of is voluntary, yet, labor unions still accept the workers.
And as we know legal definitions change all of the time; all it would take is a judge to rule and favor of these athletes and their would be little distinction b/w athletics and at will employment. That is the point of this fun debate.
Your question on taxes is very interesting and something I had never thought about, so no, I was not saying to pay income taxes on those benefits. It would be interesting to see how that might change though if they were able to unionize and the definition of them (the athletes) were to change.
Almost all work that I can think of is voluntary, hence "at will" work laws.
Which is why I wish we would change the direction of our angst.
I respect your point, but without this push by the players, I do not see the NCAA volunteering to allow the players to have a say.
If this gets the players a voice in NCAA meetings, then I am all for it!
Yes, great point!
So we should blame the college kids? Maybe we should look at the greed behind the ever growing desire for higher profit margins. I agree cost might go up, but I am tired of the peons getting the blame for the greed of the executives.
Why do we side with the powerful over the weak?
Sounds like my adderall experience.
And I think most college administrators think college [is about learning, and being able to get a good job].
Pitt, I think you are kidding yourself. Administrators whether they are in college, or in a fortune 500 company generally think about one thing, the bottom line. And for administrators in athletics, which is what we are talking about, that bottom line is wins and money.
