As much as I hate to admit it , LSU's four wins over top 15 teams  likely will be #1 this week and the Bucks #2.  Clemson, Bama and/or Oregon make the top 4.  Minny should be in the top 10 .

Boomer and damn proud of it. Graduated Hs 'back in the summer of 69 and played my six string till my fingers bled '.  Watched Neil Armstrong (along with 500 million other humans) walk on the moon 5 days before my 18th birthday .  On campus Sept 1st that year, witnessed the riots of May 1970  as I watched the  "radicals" and national guardsmen go back and forth on the Oval from the steps of Brown Hall.  It was an interesting time to say the least.

Hiny ...and I bet you were a bard in the old days.  Nicely spun story.  Looking forward to future chapters as they are written...

Easy there NB.  The actual heading of this thread is Evening Games Pt 2.  So technically the ALCS qualifies as such...and since the Columbus Clippers were a Yankee farm team for nearly three decades...there would be some local interest as well.

I don't understand why it might be culturally averse for an alum to wear a jersey to his colleges' games while men our age and older do the same (and worse--see Raider fans for example)  for professional teams when wearing  some millionaires jersey number .

Let us know when you grow up.

Those old and elderly old farts have forgotten more Buckeye lore than you mostly likely will ever know.  Take it easy on them now...some day YOU will be walking in their shoes and hearing the same dissenting remarks from the 'younger crowd' ;)

If a student gets paid for endorsements , what happens to his/hers devotion to continue attending classes?  What happens to the no "I"  in team and the inevitable resentment from fellow team members?  And those who WILL be getting these extra monies are the most likely the SAME players who have a pro career opportunity in their futures.  So how does this improve the average collegiate player's economic situation since more often than not ONLY the top stars will be compensated?

"Me too" referred to all the other athletes from lesser sports who would want some compensation as well.  But mostly referred to the comment Newsom made in the NYTimes article that he essentially dared the NCAA to expel the schools in Cali who would decide to participate calling it being a "threat" he wasn't too worried about. Sorry you took the term personally.  This would in effect be opening Pandora's Box and amateur athletics would never be the same.
