The revenue share seems big. And it all probably seems big to the NCAA

And I was going to say this night be the nail in the coffin for Larry Scott but if he's made it this far I don't know that it will have much effect.

Funny that the players’ take cake in players tribune form, after that is/was a pac 12 pr partner.

Tons of journalism indignation and masturbation here that could also go in the persecution/heroism thread.

No article has been able to identify just how many players are a part of this PAC-12 thing.  The CBS article waits until the last paragraph to note that they really don't rough ridin' know.

While the story published by The Players Tribune does not specify how many players are involved, one anonymous staff member at a Pac-12 program told ESPN the group could consist of hundreds of players from several different Pac-12 schools.

there are like 10 things on that list that are either completely off the wall or against ncaa regs.  there's no possibility of even compromising on anything close to that list.

which is good, btw.  now the pac 12 can just make an early decision to cancel the season.

I look forward to Kirk Shulz's comments about his university's athletic department approach to this issue.

OT, but explains how important football is to the P5.  Seems like they are about to tell the NCAA to kiss their ass goodbye.

"The TV ratings of those games is the answer to your question," Carparelli said. "The average bowl game rates higher than the best regular-season college basketball games. That's a fact."

This in a way explains how important a basketball power like KU is to P5 football.  Kind of like a tick on a dog's ass.

Is basketball the only sport with 4 year guarantees? Regardless how tone deaf do you have to be to kick a player off the team in this environment for standing up for themselves.   I can’t imagine a coaching staff surviving that.

scholarships in basketball are a semester by semester deal, although schools can decide to go longer than that and offer school year length I guess

No college sport has a multi year guarantee, it's why the national letter of intent program is so completely rough ridin' foul

The fact they can pull a scholarship from these players is a very good reason they should be able to transfer to another school without permission or penalty.

No one has any real idea how many PAC-12 players are involved in this hold out thing, do they?  I'm buying the unsubstantiated numbers being thrown around by reporters.

“I feel like we’ve built a base of 200-300 leaders,” Cooper said. “And now, all of those leaders are empowered with the information and inform their teammates to join this as well.”

“There’s technically not one person running the show,” said Washington State’s Dallas Hobbs. “It’s a collective of people who really want to create change in their school, but around the whole Pac-12.”

The group chat now has 400 members. One of the members, Treyjohn Butler of Stanford, started communicating with players around the country in July about their schools’ commitment to social justice after the killing of George Floyd. “We wanted to speak up about social injustice at first and felt our schools were silent,” Butler said. “Schools posted about Black Lives Matter and called it a day.”

I'm guessing he got PI'ed until he quit. No inside source.

Did you all see the dumbass coach from UChatt? I’m not able to go digging for it right now but he had to either think he was on his burner account or was trying to get fired.

Yeah, lol. They fired him quickly. My thing is if that dude feels so strongly about Stacey Adams, and those like her, how was he able to keep his feelings quiet around these dudes he spends so much time with?

Also the Baylor O line coach got fired because there are black face photos of him from when he played at Auburn. They are on thedirty.com from years ago.
