  1. How about they get half of the actual profits and losses? How about the offsetting checks they get from the profits against their scholarship? I'm always amused by people who want to be "partners" but don't want to be partners in the bad as well as the good.
  2. Technically, it is now T-Mobile football.
  3. No, more of a laser tag thing. It's 21st century stuff!
  4. I heard they are going to playing 7 on 7 as there's more social distancing in that format.
  5. Every time you touch the keyboard the value of our UA degrees diminishes.
  6. The point of college athletics depends in large part upon the institution. For the P5 schools, it's all about money and prestige. For schools like Wooster and Kenyon, it's about the further development of the person playing. The problem is that the schools in the middle like those in the MAC are stuck in the infernal cycle of striking the balance between those two extreme goals and as a result often fail at both.
  7. Thanks for posting this and welcome to ZipsNation. Can't get enough of this kind of stuff especially in the vast desert of UA sports right now.
  8. For me, it's very simple. When the medical EXPERTS, those with education and experience, tell me to do something, I do it. If they want to give me advice on replacing brakes or how to bale a cake, no thanks. If they want to dip into my area of expertise and give advice, no thanks. They want to give me advice from their area of expertise as to how to avoid getting or spreading a pandemic virus, I'm taking it over the advice of angry internet posters. I don't care what some of the doctors may have said months ago at the start of the epidemic. It's quite easy to wear a mask and maintain social distance and I'd rather err on the side of caution. You can't reverse the time to wear it after Aunt Tilly drops dead. Oh, and spare me the political talk. I'm pretty darn conservative.
  9. Looks like one of our posters was asked to wear in mask at Walmart- https://nypost.com/2020/07/24/man-charged-after-brandishing-gun-during-walmart-mask-dispute/
  10. Georgetown has football. They play in the Patriot League as I recall. I actually like their athletics model. Kreed makes a good point- Infocison can't be deconstructed and the debt forgiven. It's a reality the committee and UA will have to live with for years to come. Rather then lament its existence, they need to figure out a way to make UA events the biggest events in Infocision every year rather than the Hoban- St. V game and Founder's Day.
  11. I think it may be time to abandon sports forums until the Covid passes. The Covid debates are ruining every sports forum I regularly visit. I have a strong feeling on masks but I realize I'm not going to change anyone's mind, nor is anyone going to change mine at this point. As such, reading the name calling and debates serves no other purpose than to frustrate the hell out of me. I can't wait until this passes and we can get back to talking about the teams.
  12. The Econ department just let out a collective sigh...
  13. ...or have someone close to you get it and/or die because you didn't want to be a "lemming."
  14. Ummm, when the educated and experienced scientists tell me it's okay, thanks, as opposed to some internet schlub without a medical degree. I'll stick with the most recent info as opposed to something said months ago.
