You cannot under emphasize the value of a full college scholarship. Not only are they getting access to a very expensive and possibly life changing education, but they are able to showcase their talents for the chance to make mega big bucks in the NFL.

I don't have a problem paying the kids. Take the scholarships aways and give them 20 grand a year. Watch as these young kids piss that money away and are unable to afford an education. Playing college football is a priviledge, not a right. Admissions standards are already lowered in comparison to the average student. College athletes sacrifice a lot but they are rewarded with a debt free education that the average student would fight and claw their way for a chance at receiving even half that amount.

Agreed. Some Division 1 schools (e.g. Rice, Northwestern, Stanford) are of a scholastic caliber that transcends athletics. Unfortunately, no one looks at this as compensation, even when the majority of the scholarship students at these schools will never play professionally.

I heard something about the Dallas Mavericks owner wanting to buy out the BCS and establish a play off system... Is this true because I currently don't have full access to the internet to investigate this.

whaaaat? there's not a chance the jets are going to take the steelers today. it's as obvious a call as packers/bears. the superbowl will definitely be pittsburgh-green bay. i lack a team allegiance though, so i'm going to be routing for the cute little underdog cubs the whole way through..

edit: why are we even in this thread

no, why are you in this thread.

Yeah, Cutler is shitty and Rodgers is just going to throw all over Chicago. As for the Jets and Steelers, both of those teams I absolutely loathe but I guess I rather see the Jets go the super bowl even though Rex Ryan's lap band ass and his arrogant mouth ruined my caring for that team.

A fair question. The answer is because I am an idiot.

Now had the Jets bothered to remember they were the Jets in the first half they would have destroyed the Steelers.
