    Worst Fruit?

    Thats a good point. Anything that has pumpkin in it also has a ton of cinnamon and nutmeg. Hell, pumpkin spice doesn't even have any actual pumpkin in it!

    Possible news: NCAA split and Pac12 players strike

    They sign the LOIs because that is what the system is designed to have them do. If they want to go pro, then the only option typically presented to them is college. We are talking about 17 and 18 year olds. They lack the knowledge or experience to know if this is their best option. And usually...

    Possible news: NCAA split and Pac12 players strike

    Yes, sports like golf, tennis, gymnastics, wrestling, etc. all cost the athletics departments more money than they bring in. And if given the opportunity, I wholeheartedly believe there are administrators who would happily cut those sports if they were allowed to. But in order to be eligible as...

    Possible news: NCAA split and Pac12 players strike

    Meanwhile I see a bunch greedy TV execs and college administrators who are exploiting the labor of young men for their own personal benefit.

    Possible news: NCAA split and Pac12 players strike

    This whole issue hinges on the fact that the scholarship and all of the other benefits that college football (and to a lesser extent basketball) players are being given does not equal that revenue that they generate for the institutions that they play for. Since the explosion of the TV revenue...

    Redskins Yes or no

    It's not like anyone ever actually called it New Era Field, everyone in WNY still calls it The Ralph.

    Big XII expansion article

    I still say go for broke and bring back Mizzou. Try to pull Arkansas with them. If WVU wants to take that opportunity to leave, let them go without penalty. Once WVU leaves, then we can look to invite Colorado, and maybe BYU with them. Keep it to 2 time zones and maintain geographic continuity.

    Redskins Yes or no

    Odd thought, but I was wondering what DC will be called if statehood passes. Apparently the current bill will change the name to "State of Washington, Douglass Commonwealth" in honor of Fredrick Douglass. Though previous proposals would have made the name New Columbia. I was just thinking, if...

    Jamie Pollard letter on falls sports

    My rationale for why the season won't happen is pretty simple. Jamie says that the student athletes will be safer and more isolated at ISU. But even in a normal season, they can't stop players from going out and getting in trouble. If universities want to play the games, and bring in revenue...

    Jamie Pollard letter on falls sports

    Hey man, I appreciate the passion and wanting to help support the team, but you are barking up the wrong tree here. Anyone who is actively posting to CF is already more engaged than 90% of ISU alumni. If they have the ability to be donating, they probably already are.

    Redskins Yes or no

    Oh yeah, I forgot about the whole Dawg pound thing. But can you really blame me for forgetting about Cleveland?

    Redskins Yes or no

    There has been a lot of noise around Red Wolves (or Redwolves) for the new team name. I really like this option because the Red Wolf is a real animal (unlike something like the Jayhawk), they are indigenous to the DC area, they can easily keep the red/yellow color scheme, and there are no canine...
