Heck, don’t tell ETSU that either. We beat NC State in 1988 (?) and won against Vandy in 2021. Assuming 33 years between those games, minus the 10 or so we didn’t play football, ETSU beats an FBS school once every 23 times. So wouldn’t automatically write those games off. With the roster Coach Lamb is building, we may put a big scare into App this fall. And I know you were just making a point, and I generally agree.

Personally, I hope the NCAA is in its last days. I would love to see a common sense organization pop up that somehow continues March Madness, fixes all the garbage with the college football playoffs and bowl system, quits letting trans men take opportunities from biological women, and creates some athlete-focused NIL rules. The NCAA has been ruined by those in charge and is absolutely worthless. Lately, they’ve been good for screwing up anything they touch. I’ll be glad to see them go.

The NCAA has been ruined by MONEY - see the lucrative media contracts negotiated by the major league conferences over the years after that landmark lawsuit. In 1984, the Supreme Court ruled that NCAA control of television rights violated the Sherman Antitrust Act - enter ESPN immediately — the real present day broker of the NCAA. That was the beginning of where things have ended up today. The NCAA has become weaker and weaker in large part due lawsuits and money. It is little more than a cover, a front, a keeping up appearances, a pretentious public relations organization for what is really going on. However — if the NCAA had of maintained control of media rights, would things be much different today? With relation to power and the money distribution- doubt it. The big folks would likely still be getting the big share of the pie (and controlling the organization) based on ratings while the little folks would still be picking up some crumbs.

Respectfully - I, personally, don’t see it as a good thing for the players long range. I still believe a college degree is more important long range than some NIL money short range. If the two, NIL pay and a degree, could be merged into a single complimentary structure - perhaps. But, that does not seem to be what is emerging with the NIL together with the Transfer Portal. My hard nose position - the athletes get their NIL money upon degree completion. But, many in this age of immediate gratification would likely describe that as pie-in-the-sky, fantasy land thinking. But the reality — like I said in another post — with the mega-millions flowing to the major league college athletic programs accompanied with the multi-million dollar coaches’ salaries — not to mention the elaborate athletic facilities — no wonder we’ve reached this place as it’s filtering down to the mid-majors that can least afford it. Plus - a pro system of pay to play is next.
So I am suppose to wait till I have a degree in hand before I got my money for speaking at math conferences with my UG professor. Or my friends who continued our research in the masters program and booked more conferences should waited till their masters degree? Why should I be able to be paid on a full scholarship no loans and an athlete can't get access to money you didn't answer my question the first time I quoted it
