    Hawaii signs 2 for 1 deal with UCLA

    You say this frequently, but I really don't think this will be the case. The P5 is heading for contractions, not expansion.

    Maybe this is the new normal these days.

    OT: University of Tulsa Athletic Dept budget cuts

    I know it was a while back, but that's better than Cal; who's had access to this stuff forever. That's better than the Arizona schools and Oregon State. I'd love to see some of these programs sink or swim instead of sucking the teet of USC, Washington, and Stanford.

    There's a ton of schools in those small divisions, and very few have much of a following. The only reasons those you mentioned have anything is because it's all that is there. I think it's the exception. I looked it up. There's about 120 schools in the FCS, D2 has around 150, and D3 has like 250. NAIA has another 100 or so. I couldn't name 10 programs from all of those. It's crazy there's that many football games throughout the country at the college level.

    Uh, no. He's Eddie Vedder. With dress shorts. Which are NICE, if you were wondering.
  7. He's a better commissioner than people have given him credit for over the years.

    I mean, Wazzu has been to the Rose Bowl recently, something that some PAC schools haven't done in 50 years. I think between both Arizona schools, they've been once and they've been in the league for 40 years or so. Cal has been doing nothing with all their advantages for decades. I could see Nevada being a school like that, they fit the profile with their academics and medical programs, don't you think? But, I don't see the sports as being on par with those schools. I think big time college athletics are just part of the equation at these schools, but nobody is excited to let all of these plucky up and comers in, as a rule. There's certainly exceptions. Do you think Oregon St, ARizona, and Wazzu see themselves as peers of Nevada? I think they might someday if the division of sports continues.

    Poll reveals dems prefer socialism over capitalism.

    I think they're both huge concerns.

    Overall, I agree with your take. That said, I think Russia is constantly going against our interests, whether that's with the Chinese, in Syria, or in election meddling. They are a pain in the ass, and I think they're much more of a problem than Obama and Trump would like to admit.

    I mean, wasn't the big season you guys had in 2010 or 2011 or whenever one of the funnest times you guys have enjoyed? I don't think you ever reached those heights when you guys were in 1aa. Admittedly, I haven't followed you throughout your history, but I'd argue that alone was worth it. I agree Reno doesn't have a big regional following, but does Iowa State? Does Baylor? Does TCU? Does Oregon State? Purdue? I dunno.

    Oh horseshit. Mitt Romney said Russia was a huge threat and Obama poo poohed his claim. That worked out pretty good.

    I don't agree with that at all. I am glad they have a real playoff in those divisions, but do you know anyone who seriously follows those teams? I don't.

    Democratic Socialism - No way to pay for it

    Yeah, but you are promising government sponsored insurance, and this is the example we have for government sponsored insurance. Why is it going to be different? The government can't wipe it's own ass, yet you want them completely in charge of something this big. And they have no infrastructure to administer the plan.
