|OHMYGOD OHMYGOD OHMYGOD|
Anyway, you all probably saw NCAA President Mark Emmert embarrass himself on Friday when he went on Mike and Mike and started saying some really dumb things. If you recall from the NCAA title game fallout, Shabazz Napier commented on how he often went to bed hungry because he doesn't have money and meal plan restrictions. I can see this being an issue. So the NCAA made athlete meals all-you-can-eat or whatever which is about the most literal that anyone could ever be. Emmert then justified this change by mouth-queefing that "UConn can serve Shabazz breakfast in bed if they want to" which is about the shitheadiest thing that you could say. LOL people that can't afford food, right? What a cockbag.
It's odd that I could completely disagree with Emmert while at the same time being anti-Union, too, but here I am. I've said it before and I will say it forever: college athletes get exactly what they should get now. No, they don't deserve to be paid and they don't deserve employee rights either. You hate reading about things like what happened to Napier but just handing over cash money isn't the answer. Small steps that actually make a difference (like this weird meal plan thing) are.
Look, I get that these kid's hard work and labor only line the pockets of the schools. It's probably not right but that's how it goes. Hell, few schools actually make money on athletics anyway. If you don't like it then go over to Europe or up to Canada. You aren't forced to play college football/basketball. Stop acting like this is their only option because it isn't. People seem to want to overlook how expensive college is. Please don't do this. If you aren't cashing in on the ELITE opportunity of a free education and no goddamn debt then that is your fault. It's why I don't sympathize with these kids. If you are only using college as a way to get into the pros then fuck your asshole.
That being said, the NCAA needs to ban the selling of numbered jerseys in bookstores and team shops. They aren't helping their cause on that when you see 30K Broxton Milner jerseys on Champions Lane on a game day. I could argue about this all day but I'll stop here. Count me as one of the billions who are hoping that the NW Union gets voted down.

That will do it for today. OBVZ a YUGE game 3 at NWA tonight. We can talk about how great game 2 was in the comments. As usual...CARRY THE FLAG!
