Managers! Hardest working people in show business!
Your Fighting Managers of LSU pick up a BIG win over the Managers of Alabama with a final score of 59-57! This brings us to a record of 4-1 on the season and qualifies us for post- season play. Thank you to @Bama_Managers for coming out! @ManagerGames_ @PardonMyTake @JayBilas https://t.co/e7nWXNXdQg
RIP Gene Corrigan. One of the classiest, smartest and best administrators in the history of sport. Gene Corrigan offered me a job in the 1980s, and I’m forever grateful. A great man.
Total nonsense. “A patchwork approach, where each state possibly has different rules...would make it impossible to conduct intercollegiate athletics at a national level.” Impossible? Seriously? Just change YOUR rules and allow full NIL rights! Simple. https://t.co/SbAuIM16mF
More NCAA nonsense. There are different state laws regarding employment, labor, transportation, tax, contracts, and countless other things. Yet, the NCAA can operate just fine and hold fair competition. The idea that athlete pay is the exception is absurd. https://t.co/SbAuIM16mF
This wasn’t “too complicated.”
Dear NCAA: Here is the simple solution to your simple issue (that only you find complicated). Atheletes are free to earn or accept whatever compensation they like, no NCAA restrictions. Restrictions, if any, are only on NCAA members and employees. Boom. Done. You’re welcome.
More NCAA nonsense. “College sports is about students playing other students.” Laughable propaganda. Money has nothing to do with status as a full-time student. Athletes without scholarships and stipends compete v. those with them. Classic misdirection. https://t.co/qgaw7o8E4P
"Commercialism has made possible the erection of fine academic buildings...from the profits of college athletics, but those profits have been gained because colleges have permitted the youths entrusted to their care to be openly exploited." The Carnegie Report, 1929
The NCAA continues its slow-play of change, even though change is inevitable. “It’s complicated,” Emmert says. No, it’s not. Funny, NCAA members agree to multi-billion dollar contracts and set up multi-billion dollar events, and it’s not “complicated.” https://t.co/HzLq40OmU2
