  1. This is a liberal state providing a very libertarian option for athletes. Cali is proposing that athletes be able to market their names in the free market to be able to earn whatever sponsors would pay them. This is an incredibly capitalistic proposal that you should support based on your stated beliefs.
  2. We can throw they NFL thing out b/c they can sign with non Nike brands. Brady is an Under Armor guy on-top of the league revenue cap thing. IMO I don't think the universities paying the athletes across the board is actually the move that matters as much, like it has been said the universities offer a lot with scholarships and that will be enough for a lot of people. What I entirely support is people owning the rights to their likeness and being able to profit off of that. If Adrian Martinez or Jazz Sweet can get a sponsorship deal to market themselves then more power to them. If Roby could have hosted an autograph session at the outlet mall for 20 bucks a pop who cares.
  3. This is patently flawed b/c even though you say NFL players don't get anything from the NFL sponsorships that is just flat wrong. The salary cap is based off of league wide revenue so NFL sponsors and their funds are baked into the cap number. The higher the sponsorship payments, the higher the cap grows, the higher contracts will grow.

    That heel touch was pretty slick. Us had their chances in the first half and didn't capitalize. Going to be a tough 20 mins.

    The JV squad has blown two great opportunities early. Like the offense so far though. Should be a fun one.
  6. Gordon injured for tonight's Omaha game, bummer.

    Post your workout

    Hit 25 off my peak weight ever today. Probably haven't been this weight since 2011 or 2012. Pretty f#&%ing pumped about it. Genuinely all I have been doing is running(mostly fast walking to start) as often as I get myself to the gym after work and very basic body weight exercises and a little bit with 15 lb dumbbells at home when I am bored. I started struggling to get to 2 miles and now 3.5 felt normal today. I don't want to minimize the work b/c I appreciate everyone needs different things to see results, but I cannot believe how much has melted away with relatively little lifestyle change. I haven't changed my diet much at all(no keto or anything, still eat bread and pasta, still drink beer), not consistent at all run 5 days some weeks 2 days others and have never felt like I have really killed myself. It is just encouraging that just moving makes such an impact. I understand you get to a point of diminishing returns, but just having the habit of going to the gym and having the stamina to knock down a quick 5k feels like a great base to build off of. I appreciate the posts that I have read here though, it will help me going forward to shift to getting stronger now that I have approached a more reasonable weight and have better stamina. I have no advice for meal plans or workout schedules, my advice would just be to start. This kind of stuff was never my thing(and still really isn't, I am a huge novice still), but I like it a lot now and it gets easier every day.

    Fighting Erstads at the B1G Tournament - Iowa

    Just start at 9 tomorrow and tempt me into adding a day to the holiday weekend.

    If you are even a fringe B1G level player he wouldn't have ended up in the Summit League. If you want to say UNO or some Valley team like Drake got out recruited sure then that may be the case. Anyways hes a local hero and had a big crowd when Memphis played Creighton in the NIT, even though he couldn't play. I am sure he is excited to be playing closer to home and for SDSU which is a good program at their level.

    Isaiah Roby to enter the NBA Draft

    Guys through the 40-45 pick range still get guaranteed contracts anymore. Even if it is "only" a million that is still so much more valuable than a degree when you can go back and get that if you want. There are enough smart people involved here, a team will let him know he is their guy in round two and he will get paid. You leave if you can get the check.

    Potential Transfers

    Woah. Marquette was going to be a Top 10 team preseason. Big news.
  12. This is fine, but also the bluest of blue bloods Duke has now made the Final Four only twice in the last 15 tournaments. Success in the tournament is really freaking hard. Expectations here need to be a consistent tournament team. Get in the dance and anything can happen, but there is no potential if you don't get a bid.
  13. Carsen Edwards has been incredible in the tournament.

      Yeah, he is fun to watch. Like that kid.

      One of the best games I've watched as a casual fan in quite some time.


      Unbelievable performance from Edwards. He is incredible. We were raving about how athletic he was - he could turn on the speed and drive to the hole with ease or seemingly effortlessly raise up and nail a deep 3. Matchup nightmare.
