Re: Politics

There hasn't been a rush - Kavanaugh has been through the appropriate private and public hearings and has been through multiple FBI background checks including one since his SCOTUS nomination. You should be asking - why are Ds asking for delays - and the answer is simple - they want to push this vot...

Re: Illinois Pregame

I think this game illustrates the impact of TOs for a team that is young, talented but not seasoned / dominant. In the first half you had three plays: Holland fumble likely took 7 off the board Scott not covering fumble allowed Illinois 7 INT before half gave Illinois 3 So PSU lost the first half TO...

Yes but it was the 1998 basketball team.

Re: Kent State Pregame

Overall I couldn't be much happier coming out of the OOC schedule - yeah I'd like to see them clean up some of the penalties from the Kent State game but they happen. But through 3 games (and yes I know the competition will get a lot tougher) Offense Given he lost 3 NFL caliber skill guys McS has do...

Re: College Sports Scandals

See below for the profit generated by CFB programs - quite impressive for "amateur" athletics - and my guess is that doesn't factor in B1? TV Network money (which we all know exists only because of football and men's hoops) The 20 most profitable college football programs Here are the nati...

Re: College Sports Scandals

I'm not to bent over about what the coaches get paid if they perform - I think CJF's success with the program results in revenues far exceeding what he is paid. I do have an issue with coaches who tank here, tank there, tank everywhere get fired and collect checks from multiple schools (looking at y...

Re: College Sports Scandals

I would say the academic scandals at UNC, the recruiting scandals recently exposed in hoops and the flat out criminal enterprise that was "Da U" football from about 1985-2005 are all precisely thing the NCAA should be shutting down and they largely botched all those matters. In my estimati...

Re: College Sports Scandals

You should probably stop there dad because after that you'd have to make sense of the NCAA coming down on some kids for playing soccer with a rock band immediately after shrugging their shoulders at an institution that had a molestation scandal bigger than the Sandusky scandal. It's pretty clear to ...
