He's s lot more accurate in his assessment than you've been. Posted by: Go Canes! | August 25, 2016 at 09:35 AM Coming from the MOST hated person on the blog who nobody ever agrees with I'll take that as an "Ata Boy!" I must be doing something right!

I am not going to do it alone. I am going to comtinue the dialogue and the majority will agree over time and the power structure will adapt. Posted by: HillViewCane | August 24, 2016 at 01:05 PM Ah yes, lets sit around all day and criticize the current system but not actually exert any real personal effort, energy or creativity or risk any of our OWN capital to to create a new better system. I'll repeat it again: For every college football player who would like to relinquish his scholarship today because the system is so unfair there are 1,000 others who would GLADLY take your place. That right there tells you everything that you need to know.

Raize...U got that right! What a concept...Pay the fans, pay the people who only tailgate and never actually go into the game, pay the band, pay the cheerleaders, hell even pay THE MASCOT?

Soup... Thought you were a free market capitalist? Not allowing players to monetize their talent is the opposite of that. Posted by: 1mg Of Epi | August 24, 2016 at 04:52 PM What a reach. Stop embarrassing yourself. U got it completely twisted sister.

Pay the athletes or allow them to make outside income. Posted by: HillViewCane | August 23, 2016 at 09:08 PM Here's a better idea: Since you believe that a LARGE majority of college athletes are SO unhappy and being abused by the current system, fix it. Go out and sell your idea about how "unfair" the current system is, call Unkle Luke and others to get support funding and start your own "minor leagues" of football as a feeder system to the NFL in place of the current college system. Pay all the players a $100,000 a year or more if you want to out of YOUR own money and your funders' start up money. See if it gets any traction? See how long that lasts? Oh and what about stadiums? Where U gonna play your games? On college campuses? U got any Cheerleaders? What about Bands?

Oh and BTW, here's another thing: Like MLB has the "minor leagues" the NFL could start the same nonsense, draft kids out of HS and eliminate college football altogether. How does that strike you? Then the "kids" could spend their time for 3 to 7 years in the minors while not making any money, get injured and cut from the team and have no life whatsoever, all while traveling on team buses staying in small town seedy hotels and NEVER get a college education or a dollar. Then you completely lose college football and basketball and baseball as you know it, AND all the revenue generated by those sports to pay for college athletes in all sports opportunities to get a degree and experience the college life. Then all you have is true academics and students and no sports whatsoever. So now you just cut out about 250,000 mostly minority students from your Universities each and every year over 10 years that's 2.5 million. How's THAT for a model for you? You happy now??? Be careful what you ask for. Always think about the END GAME.

You say socialism is forsuckas but are saying a system where they work and earn money for the university and get payment as room and board is what you support? Posted by: HillViewCane | August 23, 2016 at 09:11 PM They get a chance they would never have otherwise and get room, board, education, training, nutrition, coaching, etc. If they are so unhappy with the system then nobody is forcing them to go to college or play football. Trust me when there are a MILLION others who would gladly take their place in a minute then it can't be so bad now can it? Dude, it is called LIFE. When they leave college, don't get drafted into the NFL and give up football they have to find this thing called a JOB. When you get you JOB, lets say at Ford selling cars, Ford doesn't give you a % of what they make from your work, they give you a thing called a SALARY. If you surpass your quota of sales you get a BONUS. Ford doesn't say: "Well since we make a lot of money well we are going to give it all back to the employees." If you don't like Ford's way of doing business then you have choices: Leave Ford for another car company or another JOB altogether or start your own car company, a better one at that and take all of Fords customers and make a billion dollars. Then YOU can give ALL of YOUR money to the employees if you want. After all it is YOUR company and you will not want ANY money from it for making it great, or profitable or successful!!!

Pay the athletes or allow them to make outside income. Posted by: HillViewCane | August 23, 2016 at 09:08 PM Lets compromise: Give ALL college athletes a monthly "stipend" when on campus of say $500 for food, clothing and necessities. Give them a WalMart or Publix Gift card NOT cash. Yes, half the kids will sell them for $250 to go party but hey its a compromise.

There are a million HS football players who would DIE for the opportunity to get "PAID" a full ride at a major school. It is their only shot at their dream of being in the NFL and making millions. Heck they are being PAID $75k a year just to go to class and play football with everything taking care of for them: housing, food, training, coaching and medical. How many college kids have it that good? I know I didn't! #WorkingForALiving #SocialismIsForSuckas

Pay the athletes. How can you pay a strenght coach 600k a year and don't pay the athletes. Pay coaches in scholarships and food. Posted by: HillViewCane | August 23, 2016 at 11:07 AM Don't pay the athletes. How can you asked to get paid when you are already getting a full scholarship, housing, food, caoching, strength conditioning , nutrition counseling that is valued at $300,000 over 4 years and that gives you the ONLY shot at the NFL and the millions of dollars that go with it? And IF you don't make the NFL then you can come back and get a JOB as a coach or be the strength coach and EARN $600k/year or more! It is the opportunity of a lifetime!!!

Turf Toe...nothing that a little shot of cortisone and three days off can't cure. I had Gout in my left big toe joint where it meets the foot and thought I would NEVER walk again. I went to the foot doctor and got a shot of cortisone into the joint and walked out of there just as spry and happy as U please.

The term is applied to cheeses of this style made outside Switzerland, such as Jarlsberg cheese, which originates in Norway. Posted by: canezilla | August 23, 2016 at 06:13 AM I see what U did there!
