Rip Off! Academic College Students Forced to Subsidize Big-Time Athletic Programs

Posted December 21, 2013 by Diane M. Grassi

By Diane M. Grassi The term “redistribution of wealth” has become a well-known and familiar phrase bandied about amongst political elite and used as a wedge issue to conveniently spin U.S. federal and state economic policy. And yet implementation of such policies stretches well beyond the Beltway or state houses. To wit, the National Collegiate [...]

So if you think I’m just biased against him or Cal for any reason, you’re wrong. But after last night, after the press conference in which [...]

Posted October 13, 2010 by DozierSC

Long Live The BCS

Posted September 20, 2010 by Blue and White

You can thank the 1987 Fiesta Bowl. You can thank Don Myers. You can thank Sunkist. Hell, you can even thank Penn State and Miami. The highest rated game in the history of college football put the BCS on the map and controversy on the horizon. For the past 6-8 years, teams from non-BCS conferences [...]
