Sports aren't as much fun anymore. Everything is about money.

Those Northwestern football players may soon learn that top student athletes are treated far better than average university employees.

Be careful what you wish for, union-backing college athletes. Take money from the boss' wallet and his expectations of you will start getting much, much tougher.

The job of the NLRB is to unionize as many people as possible. Their ruling means nothing. College players are not employees, if they were then they would owe taxes on their scholarships and stipends

Real college football ended years ago. Now it is nothing much a money-maker. Forget about sports.

College athletics are a business. It is NOT about sports.

I can see it now. All the best private schools - Harvard, Yale, Brown, Stanford, Northwestern, Vanderbilt - contract the best high school football players and become the only games to watch at the collegiate level. In the meantime, public universities return to their roots: amateur athletes/student scholar representing their school for the joy of it. And geting an education in something other than interdisciplinary or general studies.

Dayton "sold" their basketball coach to Tech so they would not have a pay him to do nothing and then got themselves a far better coach.

Thumbs up! Thumbs down! Nominate for Best of the Vent Score: 13

Why does it matter if a college basketball coach has a degree or not. Basketball wasn't part of their degree program.

If Ga. Tech had to hire the Dayton basketball coach, they were three years too soon.

Uggla might be cashing his big checks and laughing at us. But he's not laughing nowhere near as loud as the fan who see him hitting nothing but air most times at bat.
