AFT, they do it by holding opponents to an average of 6 points per game, while scoring an average of 5 touchdowns themselves. Bama would wax Okie State, Boise, and probably the Sooners too in a head to head game.

Agree that the kicking game decided last night's game though.

Akron, that is exactly what I was wondering as I watched them miss several FGs. Cost them the game. Team so strong, with a weak link at kicker, makes no sense. Speaking of kickers, that freakin aussie punter for LSU is good, what a weapon!

Yes Frank, you have asked this question of me a dozen times, I did in fact serve in the military. You're welcome.

Atown, I suppose we can go round and round about semantics (PURE profit is indicative of zero expenses. If you sell your car and owe nothing on it, that is pure profit. A university gets $10M to go to a bowl game, they don't keep $10M)

In your example of the fab 5, UM had a brief windfall during their playing days but there was a lot of fallout from the numerous violations that cost the University a LOT of money while the players each went on the earn millions.

My point at the beginning of this conversation was that the players move on each year while the University has to continue to recruit, feed, house, teach, train, coach and nurture a new student to replace him year after year after year. If a free education isn't reward enough, don't go! Pay your own way and play intramural sports.

I posted somewhere that those two defenses were so good that final score might turn out to be 4-2. Lol. Not too far off.

Caesar, I think that stupid NCAA rule abolishing athletic dorms took effect in the late 80's or early 90's; by that time some schools really did have some super-plush digs for the teams, which was the reason for the rule.

Nic--Not angry at all. I am passionate about what I believe. This is how I write, one of the reasons I limit what I write because people always assume I'm angry. I'm direct and to the point in a long winded kind of way.

And by the way, you missed the point. I said nothing about the college of your choice. You working and them dictating your life. I get that athletes take the opportunity to play their given sport. They are deserving of more then just a free education.

Pure profit, sure there is. You get paid, pay your bills. Do you have money left over. Do you have a savings account? Pure profit! Universities are no different. That is why they have tuition, to pay the bills. Companies make profits every year, ask google, microsoft, apple. You want to believe there isn't go right ahead, but it's factual.

Ohio St. does not allow it's players to sell jersey's. But they sold the rights to Nike, Reebok whoever to sell them. Money in turn that the university gets. Oregon, they get uniforms every week practically from NIke, no money coming from the university for them. Prior to the fab five at Michigan, their profit was 1 to 2 million a year. During the period the fab five were part of the school. It jumped to over 10 million. Not because Michigan gained its noteriety, but because they had five freshman who were unbelievable and Michigan capitalized on their names, and talent. Money which the school kept and the players saw nothing of. But who took the blame for all the "problems" the school faced?

And by the way, I never said they should be paid as professional athletes, I gave a dollar amount. Which is way less then a person who sits in a cubicle and works on a computer daily.

And no I wouldn't coach at Penn St. Can't stand the school, and I coach basketball.

"And I noticed you avoided the challenge of working for nothing, having your company put you up in a place of their choosing."

At this point in my life? No. when I was 18 years old and told they would pay for food, lodging and pay my tuition at the college of my choice. Sign me up.
