  1. Ugh. NCAA is nonprofit and makes most of its money from the NCAA basketball tournament and most of the revenue it generates gets redistributed to the universities. https://www.ncaa.org/sites/default/files/Where Does the Money Go-WEB.PDF
  2. The thing you should be looking at on this third down play isn't if he could have hit someone running open down the middle. The main takeaway from that play is how confused our O-linemen are and 5 of them end up blocking 2 guys and let 2 guys run right at the QB untouched.
  3. Psychology 101, you shouldn't even put that thought in their mind.
  4. Under Scott Frost, Nebraska is 1-6 in games decided by 5 points or less. That is the stat of a team that doesn't know how to win.
  5. I think he is trying to build the team's confidence by saying those things to the media.
  6. Sometimes players on the other team make great plays. Doesn't mean Nebraska guys screw up. That was a picture perfect hit.
  7. I don't think Nebraska can add anyone to the 2019 class as I believe they have maxed out on the 25 initial counters you are allowed per year by the NCAA.
  8. In 2016, Dinardo said a good goal for the team would be to get to a bowl game. I think in 2015 they commented about the practices being "west coast" practices, which I assumed was a hint at them being pretty soft. I don't remember what year 2015 or 2016 that Howard made a comment about players need to get up off the ground.
  9. No I was replying to the reply directly quoting the $1.1 billion that the NCAA "made" and how he liked the idea, even though it was a dumb idea because most of the money already goes back to the universities. Broadcasters don't deserve the right to make money to provide the service of letting you watch the game on TV? They are paying for the right to do so and it is up to them to figure out to make money over their expenses. That money they pay goes to AD budgets and is used for the benefit of the athletic programs and the student athletes.
  10. Broadcasters? A majority of the NCAA's revenue comes from television and marketing rights for the NCAA baskeball tournament. Do some research. In one of my previous posts I detailed where the money goes. Interestingly enough, the NCAA puts on 90 championships and only 5 make money. So the NCAA basketball championship is subsidizing 85 other college sports championships also.
  11. Yes. $130 million is used for NCAA expenses and the rest is distributed to universities through one program or another.
  12. Most of this money already goes back to the universities and benefits the student athletes.
  13. Doesn't this already happen with the NCAA? My understanding is that the NCAA generates most of their revenue from the NCAA basketball tournament and that about $220 million goes to Division I athletic departments for sports scholarships, $160 million goes to Division I basketball conferences and independents based on their basketball performance over a certain period of time (again getting into Division I AD budgets), $100 million goes directly to teams in the tournament to cover their expenses to participate in the tournament, $380 million to other funds, education programs, grants, and Divi
  14. Yeah, let's change the rules for 100s of thousands of student athletes each year to fit the agendas of the 1,696 athletes that make NFL rosters every year, which probably only works out to about 520 athletes a year since the average NFL career spans 3.3 years. I don't think they are being treated unfairly. Why do you?
  15. Chicken and egg somewhat here also. Martinez brings value to that shirt, but the University of Nebraska also brings value because of its rabid fanbase. If college football doesn't exist, than that jersey doesn't exist either. So, this comes back to my original point and is full tuition, a stipend, 3 to 6 years of meals and housing, and many other perks not offered other students enough compensation? My view is that it is enough and that the current system does work. I wanted to come back to the often used argument that people are making millions, so the student athlete should
