Did The Sweater Vest Fool You?? Yes Jim Tressel Plays The Game Too.


Let’s begin…

    First off, I think Jim Tressel knew that his players broke the rules, and I think he lied hoping that the issue would go away. Once the issue came to light he owned up to what he did, because he had nowhere else to turn. With that being said, is anyone surprised? This is college sports. It’s a system based off the exploitation of individuals that are denied the opportunity to profit off of their skills (If I read that too you and asked you to guess the profession. You would probably say black market prostitution or AAU basketball). Big time college sports are dirty, and when you’re in a dirty industry it’s hard to be clean while being successful. Just ask Randy Shannon of the University of Miami what a clean program gets you (Gets you fired in case you’re wondering).

Ohio State publicly reprimanded Jim Tressel yesterday in a press conference. They suspended him for 2 games and docked him $250,000. Now I think this is hypocritical. Look no further than the players that he covered up for. They got a five game suspension, and Tressel only got two? At the same time isn’t it also hypocritical that Terrell Pryor and the tattoo five got to play? Was it hypocritical that Cam Newton got to play last season? And while we’re at it lets sprinkle a little Reggie Bush scandal in here? The entire scope of college sports is hypocritical. So, can we please stop the farce that is, “College Student Athletes” and start paying the players.

There is too much money involved college sports to call it amateur athletics. Even Don King thinks college sports are immoral. There needs to be a union to represent the players. I propose the idea of giving players the option of a scholarship or cash (I’m talking straight cash homie). The amount of money would be collectively bargained through the union. If players opt for the cash, then they would forfeit the right to all amenities normally supplied by the university including tuition, books, and housing (I’m talking about being an adult homie).

Until changes are made these are the rules. Jim Tressel violated the rules, and should be punished. You can suspend him and his sweater vest for the entire season, but it’s not going to fix the problem. You have to end this idea of amateur athletics, and start compensating players. Now excuse me I have to wire some money to Thad Matta.

Kortney Shane’s College Football Preview: Week 6


Michigan State Will Go Into The Big House, But Will They Will?

Let’s begin…

    Raise your hand if you’re pissed off about Boise State dropping to #4 in the polls. Now keep your hand up if you’re surprised. This is the way the BCS works. The same system that gives Boise State hope of playing in National Championship must also reward Oregon for looking like a more impressive team. I’m not going to rant on this topic, because the BCS has already written Boise State a letter (see here).

    I was impressed with Oregon this weekend as was everyone else. Them boys can score my friend. I think if a team wants to beat them, they must make them throw the ball. That quarterback has a raggedy arm, and you must make him use it. If you don’t, get used to seeing the back of LaMichael James‘ jersey.

    The whole Denard Robinson spectacle has reached a frenzied level. Everyone has given this guy the Heisman after 5 games. Will he win it…I don’t know. I do know that he hasn’t played a good team yet, and Michigan‘s schedule picks up this week. Michigan State will be coming to town, and the Wolverines will be tested.

Breakdown

    Denard Robinson is the most captivating college football player since Reggie Bush. Dude can flat out play my friend. This week the Michigan Wolverines will be matching up with the Michigan State Spartans. The Spartans are a good team that dominated Wisconsin last week. Their defense made John Clay look average. So, I think their defense can at least compete with Robinson. At the same time…that’s Denard Robinson. The Michigan Wolverines have home field advantage, and the previously mentioned Robison. That’s it! I’m not buying into the hype. Michigan isn’t a good football team. You may say, “Kortney their 5-0.” Well last year they were 4-0, and then they played Michigan State. So I think the Spartan will go into the BIG House, and beat the Wolverines.

Michigan State wins, 30 – 24

“Hey Reggie Bush, god Wants His Heisman Back!”


Reggie Bush Will Always Be A Heisman Winner

Let’s begin…

    So, incase you haven’t heard College Athletes get paid all the time. Sorry to break the news so casually, but that’s the deal. The problem is that college athletes being compensated, violates NCAA rules. That means no cash compensation, no items given to an athlete (cars, houses, trips, jobs, etc.), no drinks on the house, no strippers on credit; basically no fun with out the NCAA sending the fun through an Iraq like airport check. The latest high profile athlete to be found guilty of violating the rules is Reggie Bush. Now to be fair Bush probably violated every rule2-3 times a week, so everyone knew. Except for the NCAA, who actually want you to believe that it took 5 years of investigation to figure out, the best football player in L.A was getting paid. (By the way, 5 years is way too long to investigate anything, unless you’re looking for Bin Laden, because we’re getting really close to finding that guy). Note to the world: Great people in any field get compensated, immediately.

    Consequently the NCAA punished UCS (the school Reggie Bush attended) by stripping them of wins, and future scholarships. I had no problem with that, because there should be some type of punishment. However, a report surfaced today that the Heisman trophy may be stripped from USC, because he was ineligible for the season he won the award. What? The association that rewards the Heisman has nothing to do with the NCAA. It seems like they’re trying to argue that Reggie Bush was ineligible, so technically he didn’t exists that year. The problem is, he did exist. I watched Reggie Bush shred college teams throughout his career. Bush was the one of the 2 best college football athletes (the other is Michael Vick) in the last 25 years. So, how can you try to erase that from my memory? Why don’t you just reward the best player on the field that year? Think about this. Let’s say you steal a car to go to work, and for 5 years no one finds out. During those 5 years you’re employee of the month for the entire 5 years. You get arrested during the 6th year at Wal-Mart right before you clock in. Now let me ask you. When you go to jail for stealing that car, should they also take away your employee of the month plaques? Yeah, I don’t think they should take them back either.

No One is an Amateur in Athletics…That’s How it Should Be


Sports can't get rid of what makes the ball bounce

Let’s begin…

    Amateur competition does not exist. As soon as you insert the word “competition” everyone involved becomes a professional. If you want it to be an amateur sport, don’t keep score. That would fix the problem. Treat it like a YMCA 10 and under league. I’m sure at some time there were Amateur Athletics. Back when Rick Barry shot underhand free throws, Pele was on the pitch, and people thought only Rock and Roll singers did blow. That time is long gone. Now athletes do blow, and they have the opportunity to be paid if they’re good enough. From American idol to the Jersey shore, if you have a product worth watching there’s money to be made.

    The integrity of College Athletics has taken center stage once again this summer. The on going investigation into USC athletics and Reggie Bush came to a conclusion. USC was found at fault by the NCAA, and levied a heavy punishment. Why…because they got caught. Just like the University of Miami before them. Note to all college Athletic Directors. Don’t invite Snoop Dogg or Uncle Luke to sit on your side line. A rapper on the downside of their career will cause problems. Just ask Eminem. At the same time no matter what an A.D. does college athletes will continue to get paid, thanks to boosters and agents. Rich boosters and Slimy Agents, it’s the gift that keeps on giving. Thanks to them the newest member to the club of recent violators will be the University of Florida, if they are found at fault in the Maurkice Pouncey situation (Pouncey allegedly received $100,000 before the Sugar Bowl. Straight Cash Homie).

    Take a look at the schools that have recently been found in violation of NCAA rules. Alabama, Florida State, University of Miami, Ohio State, Michigan, and any team coached by John Calipari. What do they all have in common? They all win. That’s why Boise State and Utah can’t compete consistently, because you can’t get Reggie Bush to run the Hook and Ladder for minimum wage.

    Even though it’s a violation of the rules, I think players should be compensated financially. They enable the University to make millions of dollars. It’s only right that they get some kick back. However, it is against the rules so let’s fix it, and make it Amateur Athletics. First start paying coaches like you pay the head of the College of Business. Stop allowing conferences or schools to have television deals. And stop agents from having any contact with players. Then I think you can try and sell your product as an amateur sport. However that won’t happen. Amateur competition doesn’t exist. Players and coaches will continue to get paid. Conferences will merge to make more money. “So rich boosters and slimy agents come on in, and don’t forget Uncle Luke.”
