    How long after non revenue college sports wither away are posters on this board and across America bemoaning the decline of the US's Olympic competitiveness?

    Which is ironic since he had no problem finding $600K to give to CFH. I have no problem with him giving Fred the raise, but seems ironic that there is some hand wringing in finding this amount to give to the athletes.

    I just flopped here at the office! Soccer sympathy flop!

    Remember, I could never play soccer because I can't run that long. Heard that right after an 18 mile run back in the day.

    If we're left with football and basketball as the only sports, no, we're not better for it. But CFB for schools like ISU, KSU and Baylor are about survival now. The end of major college football at Iowa State is the end of the athletic department as we know it. We're either with the Big 5 or we're toast.

    It sucks. I wish I could go back and somehow keep Earle Bruce at ISU and change the course of our FB history but I can't.

    Well, often posters here demonstrate lack understanding for sports culture outside of the upper Midwest. ISU has been in the Big 12 for nearly 20 years, yet posters still freak out when the southern MBB games aren't packed. Many also don't understand the importance of baseball in the south.

    What I'm saying is, once you give football and basketball the golden faucet, there is no incentive to the athletic departement to care at all about anything else. We get certain benefits from athletics right now, but that will probably be gone if they are looking for cuts.

    Do football and basketball make money? yes. Does that mean we shun the rest of the athletic world in order to coddle these players like babies and give them huge paychecks? In my opinion, no.
    Hey man can I have $10,000? No need for you to hog all the money you make. I would like some. Not going to do anything for it though.

    Were there scholarships before football and basketball supported them? If there were, where did that money come from? Find that source and get it again.

    But hey, keep attacking the person and not the problem. That's cool too.
    So what is your claim to the money that the football players and basketball players generate to run your club? Is it any greater than if I started an ultimate frisbee club? Should we have the same $$ given to us?
