Add "endowments" to the list of things this idiot doesn't understand.

I don't know the details about the situation in the Pac12 he's referencing, but an endowment is used as an investment. If he gives $2 million to the school and designates it to be used ONLY for the Business School, but no other stipulations, the school can invest that $2 million and use the investment income any way they see fit. The principle can only be used within the School of Business, but all other earned revenues can be used at the University's discretion.
uh, what?

So, what percent of these kids are just using this as an excuse to not have any type of injury while having a nice fake reason? 95%?

99% and think it is more than injury worries. They would rather relax and have some time off and train instead of play.

That’s one of the stupidest forms of reporting. “Not saying names, just hearing big names.” Either report something or STFU. Everyone assumes some more guys will opt out.
Yeah, but these are going to be BIG NAMES, guys!!!!

I think we are about a decade away from football being more of a simulation like the Dynasty mode in NCAA Football EA Sports. There will be players and they will look like football players and work out and be drafted and sign huge contracts, but the society and player expectation is that they don't actually risk CTE or breaking their bodies by playing. They will be scanned into the simulation and the CG model of them will play the virtual games and they will give interviews after the game.

Everything else is too dangerous to risk. Practice is too much of a risk as well.

of course the names will be big - only the biggest names with little else to prove can do it.

I'm pretty sure 75% of Online NBA and MLB fans would take this right now.

Iowa State is playing AT UNLV? LOL

I get it’s considered a destination but UNLV doesn’t even average 18k for a home game. Might as well just schedule a home and home with UNI.

They’ve done away games with G5 schools for forever. I think they’ve played at UNLV before. They played at Akron a couple years ago and played (and lost) at Toledo when Campbell was there.

They will also have a beautiful new stadium that will be a draw itself.

LOL, I was bored and going through their old schedules and this will be the third time at UNLV since 1999.

Their last non-Iowa P5 road game was at Minnesota in 1997. They also played FSU at Arrowhead.

Hopefully Iowa tells them next year’s game is in Iowa City or they can fuck themselves and they end up with 5 home games.

Should count as double wins for Matty.
If I remember right, Randy Peterson wrote a puff piece when Campbell was hired saying that Pollard was impressed by Campbell when he beat Iowa State the year before, so he was on his radar.

I fucking hate Iowa State but if Iowa scheduled a road game in Las Vegas at the new Raiders stadium, we would all want to be there. You don’t cancel that game.

These games are scheduled years in advance right? So unless it was recently signed, this was signed before they knew about the stadium.
