I completely disagree with that guy, but because I am against any sport that doesn't make money.  If they can't support themselves, they shouldn't exist IMO.  If schools want to piss money away, give it to smart kids who deserve academic scholarships and not rough ridin' worthless shot put thrower scholarships and subsidies.

 :jerk: 

Privileged athletes, maybe.  Schools hand those scholarships out arbitrarily, and almost none of the programs make enough money to support themselves. So, just keep arbitrarily handing out scholarships, but give it to those with academic qualifications AND economic need.   I mean, if they really are going pro in something other than sports, then let's focus on that shall we?  Sports are entertainment, nothing more, nothing less.

You think non revenue sports athletes are privileged? I guess we don't have anything else to talk about given this is your stance. This is akin to arguing with someone that the world isn't flat. If someone holds a strong belief that the world is flat, there's no evidence that can convince them otherwise.

There are plenty of college athletes that participate in non revenue sports and getting a college scholarship to do so is their best or even only path to become a college graduate. Academic scholarships are far less merit based than athletic scholarships. Let's play your game and assume that the money that athletic departments and donors spend on non revenue sports, they just give that to the university out of the goodness of their hearts, instead of bigger weight rooms, more luxury boxes, and bigger salaries for coaches and administrators. How much of this infusion of scholarship money will go to a high school long jumper from south Dallas with a 2.6 GPA and a 19 ACT. How much of that scholarship money is going to go to a kid from Lenexa with a 3.4 and a 25 ACT?

As most of you guys know, I just rushed and was pretty excited about getting to campus so I can get some older bros to buy me some claws and start hooking up with some ladies.  Is this in jeopardy?  What if we just have mask themed date parties?

All I can think when I see photos/paintings of people from the late 1800s and early 1900s is they were all stupid to dress that way. Suits to the park & football games? GMAFB they had to have been so hot.

My favorite is when old people bitch about how nobody dresses up to fly anymore. Yeah sorry gramps, this plane is hot as eff and it’s incredibly cramped. Apologies that I left my suit and fedora at home for this one. Also newsflash, you can’t smoke that pipe on this plane.

My non farmer gramps used to wear dress slacks and a button up shirt every single day. I don't think he even owned a pair of jeans or a t-shirt, maybe he did to mow his lawn or something but I never saw him in anything but dress slacks and a button up shirt.

The man rode around in a train car sorting mail for the post office so its not like he was some big time stock broker or something.

Flying used to be much more luxurious . . . watch a Mad Men episode or two FFS.

Cool, thanks a lot Mr. GQ for holding us all up in the security line when you have to undo your belt and put your trench coat through and put your suit jacket through and put your fedora through and untie your tie and undo your shoes.

I love suiting up, but the novelty would definitely wear off if I were expected to do it daily.
