I hate college football.

None of this surprises me too much. I'm just angry that I work my ass off in buildings where the roof is leaking (stupid lab) and this is going on.

Why football in comparison to other college athletics?

RE: I hate college football.
OSU is a big 12 school, and football is the big deal sport. The only other sport that comes close is basketball, and close is a generous term. Football is a BIG deal. Google Boone Pickens stadium if you want to understand just how big a deal.

Because football is such a huge thing there is a lot of money funneled to them, and a lot of leeway given to these players that isn't offered to other players. This type of abuse isn't limited to ONLY football, but football is where it's most rampant.

>.> well I see SI's level of journalism is still "top notch". So we are crying about people being paid for playing a game in a billion dollar industry. The problem with college football is it has nothing to do with college it is the minor league development system for the NFL nothing more. Frankly I applaud any player than manages to get a cut of the pie, they are being exploited plain and simple.

RE: I hate college football.
What upsets me is money being funneled away from academic and research programs to this. What bothers me is knowing that I worked hard for my grades and that there are those people who were GIVEN those grades without the work.

Don't pull that bull crap about "getting paid" for this. I agree if they want simply to play football there should be a minor league for that. But they're being given access to a quality college education with room and board free of charge. I pay, for the same school, 30k per year.

It's a stupid system that has no relevance to the rest of the university. But on the whole football programs actually bring in far more money than they take out. Between bowl appearances, national tv revenue, and the increase in students picking your school because it has a high profile team most (not all) football programs are a net positive to the university.

Football is the worst...quickly followed by basketball in terms of how the money corrupts the system. This....
