Now the NCAA is officially involved in the election?  What a world. 

 

If telling student athletes, truck drivers, diner cooks, tax attorneys, police officers, ballerinas, or people that believe the little green men in the little green suits are coming to vote is becoming "involved in the election" ... then I guess that's what they're doing.

For me, telling people that the way to effect change in a democracy is to vote is pretty strong advice. Property isn't damaged, lives aren't lost, and democratic, peaceful, real change can happen. Who you wanna vote for? That's none of their business.

That’s not what is going on.  We won’t agree on any of it.  The whole thing is orchestrated.  Let’s have the media drive up the rage to maddening levels then let’s remind everyone, the only way to enact a change is to vote.  Get real.  
 

And if you want to believe the democratic ran government was any better towards African Americans, that’s another argument altogether.

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

Another force fed narrative that so many believe, it becomes truth without any validation.  

If the coronavirus reaction and shutting down the economy wasn’t enough, maybe this will help.

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

The one take away I thought was interesting is it almost felt like he was telling kids if they want to peacefully protest they can.  I assume he knows kids will take that as they can during games.

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

Have a new story dropping shortly, but am seeing reports from @DanaONeilWriter and @JonRothstein that Nov. 25 and Dec. 4 have become the two most desirable dates, as of now, for CBB season to start. Can confirm that news. And I hear Nov. 25 might even be the "leader" as of today.

Looks as if Lute Olson might not have much time left ... 

I found the wording on this a little odd, saying he's in the "fight of his life." When you go to hospice, you don't really go to fight. You go to be comfortable and hopefully have a peaceful final few days/weeks.

Man that stinks.  I always liked how his teams played.  Agreed on the wording.
