A good portion of kids I knew in school took adderall without a script. Hell even in high school a good number of the athletes were taking HGH and/or some other stuff too.

Yes BYEs, imo college teams shouldnt be allowed to play more than 5 weeks in a row.

Maybe, but some are real like Bill Pulte, who owns/runs Pulte home builders or whatever actually does give out money and things to people in need.

Comment 21 Oct 2019

Likes dont really mean you want it, just spreading it around to someone that could use it. A few people are doing this on twitter and I think it is nice to see people in need get some cash from a stranger.

refs stealing 2, potentially 9 points from A&M there

Comment 03 Sep 2019

I prefer the Sky Cam, it has the scoreboard overlay now and the in stadium announcer as the voice over. 

Comment 07 Jul 2019

I agree, I just think Westbrook and Love next year would be a legit contender. There aren't any "Big 3s" to compete with. But the Cavs should either do a trade like this or trade Kevin Love to maybe Portland if rebuilding.

You don't think we should give KLove a chance at a title with his former college teammate and a legit center so he can play PF?

2 1sts, Sexton and clearing out 75 million in cap space after one year is a pretty good haul, better than what Miami or NY could offer.

IMO you can't have that setup. Players would have to earn money on their own without use of school copyrights or likeness like any other student at the school could do. Schools / conferences shouldn't be involved in it at all. If a player can, on their own accord, make money off their image or skills through selling merchandise or creating content then let them do it.

I wouldn't even argue in this direction. Most of these programs aren't rich, most don't even make money. Many rely on student fees to pay for the programs. The money the big programs make go to the other sports that don't make money and to giving athletes resources that are valued at hundreds of thousands of dollars, most likely. 

With that said, students should 100% be able to make their own streaming, video channels or merchandise and profit off their name if they want as long as they don't use any university likenesses. That way they can profit off their own skill or personalty, just like any other student at the school. 

If lawmakers want athletes to be paid then they should force the NFL to lift the embargo on 3 years out of high school and allow teams to buy young talent and develop it themselves like they do in soccer. 

If lawmakers want to really help the athletes they should focus on their health and require at least 2 days off each week, not allow more than 1 football game per 7 days, not allow more than 4 games in a row without a BYE, and get rid of plastic pads/helmets.
