Re: “Thank God for Tennessee

I'm less inclined than most to see playing football as a privilege. Football players earn every bit of the focused assistance in their educations, and the resources available to them often operate without their best interests in mind—ensuring eligibility rather than success. Some coaches and analysts, notably June Jones, have equated scholarships with contracts. I despise that analogy, but when a school can't graduate them at a more acceptable rate then it is defaulting on its part of the deal. We can't accept lowered standards and outcomes based on existing standards and outcomes.

Re: “Woo pig, the UA sports plan

I think there could have been better days for the GSR stats to be released:

Hogs rank second-to-last in the conference, right in front of a program recently turned upside down by a big coaching change.

Re: “Football announcement planned

Max summed up perfectly my thoughts on the fatuousness an independently funded Athletic Department. But while the general tenor of these comments is understandable, I take issue with the idea that there's a difference between "jocks" and "students." In my experience, athletes are among the hardest working students on campus, and to insist that they are all entitled and lazy is deeply offensive, a prejudice that is sooner picked up while watching television than while teaching or working with or even simply matriculating with student-athletes.

@Ua10 You should be able to see the press conference here:

Re: “I can see the BCS from here

Pithy. Maybe you should go back and read paragraphs three and four.

Re: “Sooie: A boost from humility

@eLwood There's no question that the Razorbacks fared better against AL than last year. I would hope a team with essentially the same personnel and home-field advantage would perform better against a team that lost eight of its defensive starters in the interim. The question is not whether the Hogs did well, but whether they did well enough to win. Sometimes cheerleading has to take a backseat to analysis, especially with a squad this good.
