Re: What Is Equal Pay In Soccer..?

I hate soccer. :lol:

But you are right Cane, it is being used for political purposes.

Re: 15 minute Sober Up Time

Not sure why they feel the need to cut it off by the end of the 3rd quarter. This is one of the biggest reasons I don't go to Pro games, even when given a ticket. Drunks. Lush folk. I drink myself over dinner...mostly Jameson Irish Whisky....but too many people drinking make it an obnoxious atmosphe...

Re: A Setback to the Boys in Blue

I would also add that Billy Graham once said that "technology has advanced beyond mans own moral ability to control it"....but I can't find that quote now. I don't think the social media stuff is not the problem. It's simply a tool.....I would even call it a mirror of how messed up our soc...

Wow. Wonder what he did? Sounds like it was more than just failing a class or two. Plagarism? :? :?

Re: Yep, His Sentiments Are Like Most

There are very few social problems that get resolved by politics. Generally, political solutions to social issues make the issue worse. More often than not in today's world, if you define the anti-christ as someone or something that creates a problem, then solves the problem they created, the masse...

Re: Yep, His Sentiments Are Like Most

One might ask, just why would ESPN even consider the mix of sports and politics??? Without knowing, my best guess would be that since political parties and campaigns are awash with dollars and ESPN is a for profit entity, both see a potential opportunity to gain...... but, there is a risk where bot...

Clemson's itpay brought in 39 million last year...just itpay...not sure how these lists are compilated but I know there are many private nonreporting schools. eg. BYU and Notre Dame...pretty sure these two would make the list. This is to a great extent about TV revenue and some conferences are comp...

Re: Yep, His Sentiments Are Like Most

Scholarly thoughts from both of you. It's divisiveness that is tearing the country apart, and I would argue is 'intentional'. You lose the importance of the Strong Independent Individual to the Identity of a Special Interest Group, who really does not care about any of the Individuals within it. Ver...

I'm not sure how South Carolina receives more in revenue than Ga.

Re: College Admission Scandal

It really shouldn't surprise anyone who has sent a kid to college in the last 15 years. It is such a racket. You have tuition. Then you have room and board - and I know none of this is different than 40 years ago when I went, but the the price of room and board can be more than the price of tuition...

This is BAD for LSU

I'm not sure what's going to happen here, since I think they are spinning it that he acted alone and the University didn't know about it. If you fully believe that, more power to you. :lol: :lol: I'm afraid our society is doomed. Scandal's like this only affirm in my mind that we don't have the &quo...
