  1. In this case, assuring we take home that $700 million just means not changing anything.
  2. Currall should have put the entire $700 million endowment on NC State the minute before he officially resigned.
  3. There will always be some that think a university's value rests on athletics and not education.
  4. Not a chance. She's the highest paid public school president in the country right now.
  5. I heard next year, they're going to charge students for the shipping fee. So, you'll be good then if you want to get in on it.
  6. Somehow, I managed to get out of bed this morning and carry on.
  7. Everyone loves to whine about how things are now and how college football used to be so pure. College football has never been about accomplishments. It has always been about the money and schools have always been cooking up ways to make it and ways to cash in. I teach this in my HCC class when we go over the beginning of college sports at the start of the 20th century. Yale was a shady ass school 100+ years ago when they were the kings of football and schools are still looking out for themselves and how to best keep themselves rich. "In 1905 (the earliest date I can find on the matter), there was an expose done on Walter Camp and Yale football and the claim was that the athletic department had accumulated a slush fund of about $100,000 dollars from ticket sales and an $8 student fee. The president of Yale refused to investigate the charges and Camp declined comment on the matter. The issue was "confirmed" in 1914 when Yale opened its 78,000 seat stadium, the Yale Bowl." (lifted from my own notes and research)
  8. There are people who still think winning is what drives conference expansion or that it ever did.
  9. There is no world that exists without FSU being in any version of whatever the top of college football is.
  10. I don't know much, but I know puc doesn't 't ever repeat himself in his posts.
  11. Gavin Conticello is one of three players drafted in the 8th round that haven't signed, yet. About half the round has signed for below slot money, however, the HS player drafted just before him went for $1,000,000 and the HS players drafted just after him went for $208,000. Both above slot.
  12. Try being a Cubs fan from brith to 2016. Or the Bears every year but 1985.
  13. Bulls, Bears, Cubs, Nationals (lived there for a bit, so I have a soft spot), Rays (been here since 2004), definitely migrated over to being a Lightning fan, and USF. I watched my first Bucs game from start to finish this year.
