    JasonBryant reacted to ISUChip in Over/under 9.5 D1 wrestling teams cut   
    If the NCAA actually enforced its own attendance requirements for FBS football, most of the MAC would already have been punted to FCS in the last 10-15 years.
    But, schools are allowed to cook the books and run through a bunch of loopholes to appear to make the minimum average -- when in reality, they are nowhere close.

    There are leaders and there are followers. There are leaders and there are pretenders. 
    We're seeing who the pretenders are with what schools are opting to cut sports right now.

    When schools turn down money to keep a sport, it's clear where the priorities are. My point is that there are so many piss poor people in leadership at some of these schools and those are the schools hatcheting sports because their leadership is unable to check off some simple boxes and keep chasing pipedreams. Stanford isn't the example. I'll use some of the MAC schools like Akron or my alma mater in Norfolk, chasing the football dollar at what cost? So you can go 1-11 or better yet, go 10-3 and beat Eastern Michigan in a Thursday afternoon bowl game named after fried chicken? 

    Those are the pretenders I'm talking about. The first thing some of these leaders need to do is stop pretending and looking for their next job. If your financial plan is ruined because of one season of football, then you done failed at your job. Akron, for example, will go to Clemson and take a beating for a million bucks or something like that. Maybe less, but while clamoring for college football to be played, these admins are putting their kids at risk by sending them into a game with a school with multiple times the resources and in some cases, multiple times more of the talent. Those are the games the FCS and middling-FBS kids get hurt in. Sure, you can capture lightning in a bottle like App State did vs. Michigan or ODU did vs. Virginia Tech, but Akron needs to be playing schools like itself or like-schools drop down to FCS and get over themselves as an FBS school. 

    That's kinda where I'm going with this. This isn't all about the pandemic, but this pandemic has exposed where the shortcomings are in college sports more blatantly than previously accepted - except for SEC football fans (I kid, I kid, kinda).

    To me, the overall day was worth the $20. I didn't really have high hopes that the main event would be the best match. Richards and Sanders was worth a good portion of the money as a viewer. I try to find the overall value in these things. I don't pay $60 to watch one UFC fight, I pay to watch all of them on the card. There's going to be snoozers in every type of fight card. 
    I'm glad I paid for it. To a good cause, BTS Chicago and the athletes.

    Jenna's an awesome person and has represented us on the World stage since she was a kid. It's relevant to wrestling because she's a Youth Olympic Games alum, a Junior World teamer, a Senior World Teamer. I've done a lot of features and asked questions to wrestlers about their off-the-mat lives, ranging from collecting atari games, to being a mother and competing, painting shoes, building businesses.
