    True. Frankly I would like to see schools do more to help students to vote. I know it was pain in the butt back in 2008 for me

    It’s not force fed that people are seeing a message about being pro social responsibility as being a partisan issue.

    If a comment about social responsibility and justice is representing and supporting a particular party then that’s a pretty damning admission in itself

    I don’t think encouraging people to vote classified as involved in the election.

    Part of me wonders if some of these aren’t Tipton edits influence

    I honestly don’t care either. I just don’t think it means much.

    Any time I see a top 12 or other large number I just figure that those are just the 12 schools that are still in contact. Maybe I’m wrong but that’s what my gut says

    The skill gap after the elites is just not that wide. Without our current crop of superstars you’d have a bunch of players without a significant gap in ability. There’s a wider gap between #1 and #25 than there is between #100 and #200 Would be great for the basketball purists. But what saved baseball after the strike in the 90s. Good clean baseball or a bunch of guys on roids separating themselves from the pack.

    People don’t really root for the home team as much when there’s no LeBron or Jordan though. Would probably benefit college basketball though

    Yeah not going to happen. Be it basketball, football or any rarified skill. The best of the best can’t truly be replaced with a significant dip in quality. Remember the NFL ref strike

    Covid showed them they have tremendous power. And they are tired of playing for an organization that has owners who are outright antagonistic to causes that the majority of players feel strongly about. People hate socialism and praise capitalism. Well this is just capitalism in action. So before you tell them to shut up and play remember that it’s just business. They are telling the people who enjoy their product that if they still want the product they need to start placing importance on the values they have. They have the right to refuse service just like other businesses.

    Totally agree. Vogel got us consistently in the mix. Had we wait till Lebron was in the west we could have been in the finals.

    If the tests results all came back negative they would be good data and totally trustworthy. They were positive so total fake news and simply party of an international conspiracy

    Pretty short sighted. Yeah you save some money this year but then don’t have cupcakes in the future to play

    Wow how many coaches have gotten extended just before getting swept by a lower seeded team? Has that ever happened before?

    Aren’t those approximately 20 players we never see in a given year basically the scout team? If so I doubt it would give us a better product.
