    NCAA should pay student athletes

    I believe the capitalist model would include pay for performance. The more you contribute to the bottom line (winning?) the more pay you receive. Catch a touchdown pass, receive a bonus or pay for position. Or perhaps pay for perceived value versus other players at the same position. Universities could setup a draft to sign players then pay based on which round they were drafted. Alternately pay players based on a socialist system. Everyone receives the same pay regardless of sport, position, gender, P5 or G5, wealth of the university, etc. Endless debate on the pay. And by the way, get an education. Then charge the athletes for tuition, room and board, books and fees.

    NCAA Significantly Changes Kickoff Rules

    The receiving team can still attempt to return the kick by not signaling a fair catch.

    Thank Goodness We Built Apogee &

    If UH has such a great athletic program then why did the Big12 turn thumbs down on your application to join. They evaluated UH along with other schools and decided you and the rest did not have near enough to bring to the Big12 party. And even several high placed Texas politicians could not sway the decision.

    Mercer (3/19/18)

    Just picked up my ticket at the ticket office and they said the attendance number in the box score was an error. They said the attendance was north of 2,000.

    When is the CUSA Champ game?

    I found out Monday night the planning had already started just in case. If we do host we are on a very short leash most likely 4 or 5 days according to the staffer I talked to about it.

    CUSA Bowl Projections

    Nebraska started receiving a full share this year. As a member of the Big 12, Nebraska received a larger share of the income than most of the other members. It was not all about the money. Yes, it was a major factor but the academic benefits and the equality in the decision making was also major factors.

    CUSA Bowl Projections

    Nebraska's chancellor was warned of the upcoming conference reorganisation and was told that NU likely could be left standing alone. Proactively, he contacted the Penn State chancellor and asked if the Big 10 would be interested. The rest as they say is history. Nebraska was dissatisfied with Texas running the conference and the other schools kowtowing to Texas. Remember the Big 8 formed the Big 12 with 4 schools of the Southwest conference. So a chance to join the Big 10 where all schools have an equal say and share the money equally was too good not to pass up. Plus the Big 10 has an outstanding academic sharing program and private high speed network among the member schools that was and still is unique to the Big 10.
