  1. And for services provided.....Attend BYU and play football. PAY FOR PLAY IS HERE, IN THE OPEN, UNRESTRICTED, AND GLORIOUS!!!!
  2. If true, regardless of outcome, won't this set off another mega-conference arms race? You certainly don't want to be last to that party.
  3. This attitude is part of the problem. The strength of prior infection immunity is debatable. The vaccine immunity data is solid. If we could hit 70-80 percent, we could dramatically reduce Covid as an issue worldwide, reducing the probability of further mutation and transmission. Most wouldn't argue with an airline pilot if told to return to seats but so many do when life saving vaccines are readily available. To refuse a vaccine is a personal choice, but also a selfish one. I get there are a few people that legitimately cannot take the vaccine, but most of the reasons for refusal are just wil
  4. The guidelines are: Deals cannot serve as recruiting inducements. Athletes cannot receive benefits without services given. Agents or representation are allowed for NIL benefits. Schools cannot be involved in creating opportunities for their athletes. Players cannot promote alcohol, legal drugs like cannabis, tobacco products, adult entertainment or gambling. I've got nothing against the kids making $$ but I can't fathom any way to monitor the above "guidelines" to keep the playing field even remotely level. 1. Prove that the kid got that sponsorship
  5. I get both sides, I think that the kids do deserve something for the work they put in and monies they bring to the school. I also think that college sports being amateur is what makes them compelling to a lot of people. It's a no win situation. Something did have to change. What we got is a dam break. The days where a big name high school athlete goes to a school because they are die hard fans and want to play there are effectively over...Just like NFL players, they will go wherever gives them the biggest payday. The complexion of the sport will change, and it will become significantly more ex
  6. I think that this ends college sports as we know them. Contrary to the the benefits outlined in earlier posts, it really is uncapping Pandora's box onto the slipperiest of slopes. "schools CAN offer academics related, non-salary compensation"...Lawyers will have a field day by exercising the broadest possible definition of this. For example: Billy Bob is allowed to have a job and be a college football star. He gets an internship with a big booster for 250K / year but doesn't have to show up a day. You can't tell me this isn't going to happen. The NCAA can't keep their thumb on compl
  7. I was thinking the exact same thing. A lot of "Nothing to See Here!!!" going on in Red Stick. This is either hugely detrimental to LSU athletics, or it will fade away quietly. Mixed messages for sure.
  8. I've got to go with Jason Miska. He used to come into Movies & Munchies and chit chat. He was a bit rough around the edges but a nice enough guy from what I could tell. That safety he got against Alabama was great. Barker nearly shat himself when Miska wrecked him in the endzone!!
  9. Thanks to those of you for the insights. I do appreciate it. The extents and ramifications of this situation are so profound that it will surely leave a dent in the collective psyche of the world. One wonders what changes or lack thereof we will see as a result. Peace, health and safety to all.
  10. During this unprecedented event in modern times, we all have an abundance of time to ponder. Some questions have come to mind. If we assume god is all powerful and loving and has a plan as most Christians do then... 1. This virus impacts all of us, regardless of race, color, and creed. Why does he choose not to fix the situation immediately and put an end to world wide suffering due to the impact of Covid-19? 2. If he has an omnipotent plan, than what effect, if any, does prayer have to change the outcome? Interested to hear your thoughts on this.
  11. So....this is what passes for essential Journalism in the Bammer community....In fact, as I post this they changed the title. Was Trashy Bruce Pearl Fans, Auburn. Trashy Bruce Pearl Fans... Slow news day I suppose.
  12. Orange over white looks like Miami IMHO. If anything (and I'm not saying it's needed) I would prefer to keep the color palette and locations static, and mess with some shadowing or subtle camo. Our uni's are so classic and sophisticated i would hate to see them tainted by a sophomoric attempt at keeping up with the Jones's.
  13. In this climate...at this point in time.... I will pretty much take anyone to knock Bama down a peg.
  14. What we have here is a no-win situation. Don't pay the players and it's un-American to prevent them from profiting from their own image and work. Allow them to work side jobs like normal students and corruption walks in a wide open door. Pay them according to an organized plan and we alter the athletes motivations and drastically impact the nature of the sport. I'm stumped.
