re: If I was a HS Senior in Louisiana and wanted to play football out of state - laxtonto
The real issue is not about kids leaving the state to play football, but the bigger question of at what point should the level or value of a degree from an institution be weighted in the decision. Very frankly, there are many better options academically than LSU. At what point should this idea th...

re: How Greg Sankey should Handle Conference Expansion - laxtonto
[quote]No expansion = no (highly profitable) SEC Network[/quote] No expansion also means no locked in media deal that will soon be below overall market rate. Expanding at the time, if all other factors remained static, was great. It also assumes that our current revenue model will be the best way...

re: In this thread we compare the penalties to the NCAA Matrix.... - laxtonto
This will be the first big test of new penalty matrix. The bigger point is in the past we had minor and major violations, and now we have level 1-4. Major violations back then would be akin to level 1 or 2 violations. What is scary is that there is 11 level 1 violations or to put it in the old v...

re: BREAKING NLRB now considers NCAA athletes employees - laxtonto
Sometimes I dont think people think these things all the way through. If you pay the athletes then I have to treat the athletes just like any other employee. No special treatment, no internal punishment. You have to follow the same rules of discipline for Bob the idiot janitor as you do for Mr Al...

re: UCLA @ Texas A&M - laxtonto
Game will be decided on the OL. A&M is in the bottom ten in the FBS in total starts on the OL, and aggies start talking about how bad their OL coach is and it will help, go look at the OL depthchart and tell me who do you expect to be calling the blitz pickups? UCLA has a solid set of upper clas...

re: Sports Illustrated Article on Ole Miss SIAP - laxtonto
OK, for those that keep saying that the NCAA helped draft the rebuttal to the NOA and therefore they will not increase the penalties: 1. The enforcement staff and those involved in the investigations are not the same people that actually deliver the final punishment. 2. OM's response did not e...

I wonder if this is him being way more careful than we give him credit for. If this is actually real, then the implication that this system is in place well before the released Instagram pictures. That means that this will more than likely also be in possession of the hackers. If whoever hacke...
