      Then how did the hoops power conferences screw up and lose control?

      Was it simply a matter that in hoops the money didn't show up until 1979 and the NC$$ was positioned to control it, whereas in football the fix was already in long before so the P5 controlled the money from the start?

        ESPN makes me sick. It's just too painful to be exposed to entertainment made for the commoners. It's like going to the zoo.

          • First big mistake. Maher had that guy by three steps, all Ian has to do is loop it over him.

            Nope.

            That cost 40 yards in field control on one play. (So, 4 Alabama plays from scrimmage.)

                Big East. They were the power BB conference that didn't care about FB.

                And it's a lot easier to field a full scholarship BB team than FB or even hockey. That's why all the smaller FCS schools play D1 BB. And they are good, too- well one team is.

                  Not a great start to the second half- hold Bama, with potential, then turn it over immediately and let them score. Starting to look like Bama will cover the spread easily.

                        Until they win it all, D1-AA has to rely on Villanova.

                            I'm looking good. The spread that I got was +19.5 (-108). :39 to play and a garbage Notre Dame TD has it at 17 points. Just need to avoid a defensive TD and I should be good.
