Re: Furman cuts baseball and lacrosse

66 would know better than me but I think wrestling has enough support from their alumni to handle things. Major issue with wrestling, no summer camps this year. That will take a lot of money from their budget. How much of that money actually went in their budget. I have always heard there was summe...

Re: Padding My Post Count (rolls eyes)

In other news, the track team might have a new outdoor home in 2021, if athletics can be bothered after dealing with football.

NC Senator Richard Burr plans to introduce a bill to tax said student athletes' scholarship if they receive money in relation to them cashing in on their fame.
About time, if they are wanting to be semi-pro athletes then treat them like semi-pro athletes.

Re: NCAA Votes to Allow Athletes to Cash in on their fame

I have to laugh at all the millions football and basket ball is making. Take out the student fees and get back to me about how many are left. A system supported by forced payments is not capitalism. Lets leave capitalism out of the discussion. How long will a system that profits the QB and leaves t...

Re: (Afternoon) Classes need to be canceled Thursday for GaSo

Not true. In 2017 against Southern Raley was open on the side closest to Rivers Street. The spaces were marked as Fac/Staff until 5 pm and then they were opened to festival parking for the game. Students could tailgate in that lot after 5 if they could find a space. It's the same rules as this year...

Re: (Afternoon) Classes need to be canceled Thursday for GaSo

My issue is that students aren't able to tailgate. My best memories from school are tailgating in Raley. Specifically night games. They shouldn't take that away from these students There hasn't been weekday student tailgating in at least 5 years. Not true. In 2017 against Southern Raley was open on...

And the other game is WVA vs Baylor My issue is that students aren't able to tailgate. My best memories from sch...

Re: (Afternoon) Classes need to be canceled Thursday for GaSo

1. Its a Thursday night. 2. Its Halloween. 3. Halloween is on a Thursday night. 4. There is a nationally televised football game (on a Halloween Thursday night). This is already turned up to 11. We do not need the University basically asking students to start early and see if they can find the 12. ...

Re: Classes need to be canceled Thursday for GaSo

This type of decision should be made prior to releasing the academic calendar, not 4 days before kickoff. Obviously we all would prefer the game to be played on Saturday when the football gods intended college football to be played but until ESPN and the Sun Belt decide to move the game, the univer...

Can't wait for the afternoon teacher above to make up all those days that are missed b/c of snow. This is an absolute joke. You are telling me they have known this for 6 months and this is the best they come up with? Don't give me that shit about "this is an educational university first" "they pay ...

Re: (Afternoon) Classes need to be canceled Thursday for GaSo

The one time that they let the lots be open at noon for a weekday night game at 3pm, the time that they are opening up now, the lots were 95% empty. Most of our fans are not going to take a full day off for a game when they are in a 2-3 hour drive away. They are going to leave work at 2 or 3 pm, loa...

Counter Point: The game should be delayed until Saturday so that the full attention of the University can be put on it.

Re: Track

Yeah, this is a dumb thread. Football made the university more money this week than track generates in a decade. So, let's turn Holmes into a classroom building since basketball sure as H doesn't generate much revenue and neither does FH, yet it has a field of its own. The Holmes Center is a classr...
