Until we start beating some ranked teams and get ranked ourselves, White will never get the national attention he deserves.

I don't know that the players unionize if they can get their demands met....

1) Long term health care, as SicPuppy noted
2) Long term agreements, instead of the one-year agreements they have now
3) Coverage of the full cost of education per Department of Education guidelines (the pending issue in other cases)
4) Some benefit from the marketing stream (I I were the NCAA, I would dedicate a portion of the licensing money to the long term care budget - this WILL be expensive, maybe so expensive it offsets everything else).

Sometimes getting a decision is about leverage. Now the players have some. What to do with it?

I was looking back at Big East predictions, some writer thought they would get 7 schools in, they barely got 4. Future predictions for the New Big East is every year they get two locks, with 1 or 2 bubble teams.


I completely agree. I think that "experts" as they usually do forget what teams made the league and made it such a great place to play. Syracuse, Pitt, UConn, WV, Cincy, and Louisville. The fact is they are all gone. The teams that are left many of them have not been relevant since the 80s.

As the invitations to the dance dwindle, the recruits will dwindle and the downward spiral will continue. The basketball only schools always saw themselves as WAY MORE important than they actually were.


As we head to the Elite 8, and the Big East is nowhere to be found..... bump

I thought the show was well done. I enjoyed Mullin, Easy Ed and the Pearl.

I don't really like Big John from GTown, but he was a man that took a stand.

Thought it was very interesting how Penn State played a part in the deal.


Still a lot of people thinking that if the football schools would have bought on to the JoPa conference proposal back in 1991 that a lot of this realignment stuff would have gone far differently. That there would still be a Big East and the ACC would have withered into the background. We will never know.

Still good to see that the remaining Big Least is collapsing under its own weight, and a less eastern conference than the superior A-10. Or even worse than the American, for that matter. Kind of like the old Southern Conference spinning off both the SEC and the ACC, and now nobody cares about the Southern Conference.

Good point about the FAFSA and work study. One difference here is that the D-1 scholarship paperwork (probably the same for D-2) is that the student MAY NOT WORK, CANNOT GET WORK STUDY, WAIVES OUT OF FINANCIAL AID, and is basically frozen in place. There have been stories that some student athletes are not able to buy clothes, and only wear with the Athletic Department gives them.

I like the idea of letting some work-study type program get the student-athletes in all sports a 20 hr/wk (the max in the program) assignment, even if it is to train for the sport or whatever they want to come up with. At the prevailing rate for all athletes (which is easy enough to do, as the data lives everywhere in academia). That's the big difference between those of us who plowed their way through undergraduate school (and grad school for several of us). We had work study $$$ coming in every two weeks to pay for stuff we need. These athletes sometimes do not.

An issue I would like to understand is if some of these athletes can get their parents or guardians to countersign loan documents. In some cases, I imagine the answer is no. When that happens, because of NCAA parental oversight regulations, can the athlete emancipate before age 21? I don't know the underlying rules on how this step might impact their scholarships. Any thoughts? The reason I think of this is that to get an undergraduate student loan now, your parents have to agree for you to take the loan. If they do not, you are stuck.

Given that these athletes are on a full ride, the only loans they may be eligible for could be parent loans. They would generally fall out of eligibility for student direct loans at most schools. Having a parent refuse to sign this loan could be very troublesome. Just a question.

From a quick google search, a first game NCAA loss is worth ~300k.

http://winthropintelligence.com/2013/ ... years-unit-payouts-after/

Payouts are made over a rolling six year period, to spread the wealth over time.

http://www.forbes.com/sites/chrissmit ... our-is-worth-9-5-million/

So WVU gets credit for the 2010 Final Four run a bit longer, but that will fall off soon. However, shares are handled by the conferences and split among members, so over the six years, a team will get a good fraction of that money, but so will its conference and the other conference members. I believe that this credit was involved in the Big East settlement.......


NIT doesn't pay anywhere near that unless you get to New York, but you have more expenses to take care of (NCAA pays travel for all teams in the NCAA tournament, but the NIT payouts are not so generous). For example...

http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2009/M ... lucrative-ncaas-year-not/

Of course, none of that clears up Marty's question. So, with a hypothetical:

Say a NCAA share this year for a first game loss is worth 330k. Say that the Big 12 takes one share, each member takes one share, so that each gets 30k. This 30k extends out for six years (no inflation), so the total value of the game to the school is 6*30k = 180k.

However, reaching New York nets the school - with no conference share, $50k. So, for this year, the school makes more money reaching New York than losing the opening game.

So, if your "more money" question is this year only, NIT - but only if you win three games. If not, forget this route. If you want to look out six years, a single NCAA game is more lucrative. Or at least, from a quick review, it looks that way. I'm guessing Marty would like the six year payout.

If it were me, getting a good chance at five games with a young team has value. With a senior-laden team, go to the big dance.

Find that judge's area and find someone else to oppose her in the next election. When you elect judges, you sometimes get duds like this. Justice in some places is just random. Or like this.

Ken Pomeroy has WVU at 60. That's NIT territory. Or those other tournaments you've never heard of but at least get to sell tix to a few more home games.

All makes sense to me. Even the original post. Yes, some spam patrollers should be empowered to whack posts and users who post them.

Might want a few people (shouldn't take an army, should it?) who have long reputations on the site to be able to at least nominate users for blacklisting.

Some sites use a "hide rating" to allow "trusted users" to offer that certain posts should be "hidden." if a user gets a certain number of "hide" ratings, goodbye. With these spammers, wouldn't take long. One problem - this site is managed by busy volunteers who may not have the time/resources to do this much code.....

Can we at least get rid of any anonymous poster and their posts?

Good thought....

Dick frod is a good coach agree or disagree, with us his record was what 60-26, 134-90 overall record, he is still coaching to he will be one of the most winning coaches in football history,he is up there with bob stoops and Mack brown in number of wins, only difference is he has a little bit more losses, and coached at a bunch of different schools. I would take him back right now if he says he threw the sh!ttt game and made us not go to the NC, I know he threw it what Pitt was 4-7, we beat all the top teams accept usf and we dropped that last game.


He's 50 years old now and only has 134 wins? Not going to make it. Paul Johnson, Jerry Kill, Dennis Franchione, Gary Pinkel, Larry Blakeney, Terry Bowden and Bill Snyder all have far more wins than Fraud. Among all time coaches, Bryant has 323, Warner had 319. And that doesn't include JoePa's 409 (or 298) or Bobby Bowden's 357 (or 346, some of which were at THIS SCHOOL).

Scuba, put your regulator back in. No way DickRood gets 200+ wins the rest of his career. Count on it.

Doubt it. Since his wife died, he's spending lots of weekday time with the kids. I think he enjoys his job, getting half the year off. Just like John Madden never went back, I don't see him doing so either.

Lombardi made a big mistake going back to coach Washington. I think Cowher learns from history.

BTW, Tomlin and Cowher have the same Super Bowl records: 1-1.

So, this makes you a, how do we say it in the legal world, a criminal. Therefore, you lose the rights to your guns.

Guns are a right, but we as a country get to regulate rights. Just like you can't scream "FIRE" in a crowded event to panic the public, you can't just have any gun you want to gun down what you may think are zombies but someone thinks is their kid or sibling.

We have these laws because too many people are frankly idiots. Can you legislate stupid? No, so we regulate the implements of destruction. What's your next best option?
