    SEC's National Agenda for Change

    Slive lays out SEC’s ‘national agenda for change’ | CollegeFootballTalk

    What does everyone think about this? Definitely some intriguing things brought up and should be interesting to see what the rest of the conferences say in the coming week or so.

    And not a damn thing about adding A&M and expanding. Suck it, Aggie.

    Re: SEC's National Agenda for Change

    Some of that I'd need to spend more time on, but I like the 1st three:
    1) Love the idea of binding multi-year offers. I have fun with the idea that Michigan State is our feeder program, but ultimately, I think the rampant instability hurts the game. Find a way for coaches to stick out their contract (without being bought out), and that might help even more.

    2) I never have a problem with minimum GPAs going to 2.5, because you are supposed to be ready to work in college. That said, I don't have a real problem with partial qualifiers, either.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    I hate the extra $3,000 to student-athletes. They're compensated ridiculously well already. Amazing things would happen if they took advantage of everything instead of wasting their time on a worthless degree.

    Schools will drop sports because if some athletes are being paid, all need to be paid

    Re: SEC's National Agenda for Change

    I love this statement:
    "Slive dismissed the notion that some schools could not financially support such an initiative, saying that economics should prevent an institution from doing what’s right by a student-athlete."

    That's a pretty easy statement to make when your conference is rolling in dough. It's like telling someone who's homeless that "the fact you are destitute shouldn't keep you from having your own place to live."

    If some of these morons had their way there would only be 10 teams in major college football and the rest of us would just play intramurals.
