re: Sounds like tomorrow we'll finally get answer on A&M kickoff - SwatMitchell
[quote]I'm cool with a Friday slot, but hopefully not a daytime slot.[/quote] I totally agree. Much easier travel and a better time for tv, besides the NFL has taken Thanksgiving night. That Saturday is loaded with other top/rivalry match ups....

re: Title 9 cost colleges millions - SwatMitchell
If a school's AD turns a net profit, then it is a self supporting business entity and, hence, should allocate scholarship $$ according to revenue by sport (or ratio of revenue per roster spot). Since unbridled free enterprise can have issues, cap football at 80 and floor/minimum all (mens and wom...

re: When will baseball get a little more money - SwatMitchell
[quote]I think the point he's making is that baseball is good for "this school" so why not allow "this school" to give scholarships as they see fit. Right?[/quote] Absolutely, each school should be allowed to budget (scholarships, coaches salaries, facilities etc) based upon revenue contribut...

re: When will baseball get a little more money - SwatMitchell
[quote]NCAA baseball is no where close in terms of overall viewership as NCAA women's basketball. Outside of the south no one really cares about college baseball. [/quote] I have no doubt that the LSU baseball was viewed (tv) by more than Lady Tiger basketball during any of the past 25 seasons. ...

re: The Fly in New Orleans.. - SwatMitchell
It was one of our main hangouts in high school (mid 80s), Pits/Stoners in one area - Preps/Frats in another. The cops would roll through occasionally and chase everyone out. MIPs did not exist then&there and it was only illegal to sell alcohol to someone under 18, so we could try different conve...
