    Katie got a reaction from wamba in Jim Jordan set to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom   
    According to news reports, Jim Jordan -- 2x NCAA champ and former assistant coach at Ohio State -- is set to join Dan Gable as a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom.  This should absolutely draw more attention to wrestling. The story is here.
    Please no political discussion!

    Katie reacted to Drake_Mallard in Rogan podcast with JB   
    JB did great. Represented himself very well. Thank god he is the accepted voice of our olympic sport in a lot of ways.... If that were Dake, the entire podcast would have devolved into conspiracy theories, and if you are a frequent Rogan listener, you known exactly what Im talking about. Thankfully JB is interesting enough not to let that happen.

    So if a legislature says a tax-funded expenditure is for the greater good, you would never ever disagree?  I guess some people need their hand held through life.

    If you really think that being forced to subsidize some random person’s hobby counts as contributing to the greater good, then please send me a picture of the front and back of your debit card.  I’ll make sure the greater good is super duper well funded.

    Colleges should only have sports that are supported by private donations and revenue. Or perhaps no sports at all.
    It’s absurd that colleges force students to borrow money in order to pay into athletic budgets that exist to provide other students with fun.  It’s also absurd that taxpayers are similarly forced to subsidize others’ fun. 
    At the end of the day, school should be about kids obtaining job skills, and not about forcing students and taxpayers to pay for others’ fun. 
    I thought Americans hated redistributing wealth like that.

    If we're going with the "purely math" approach, we probably need two lists -- one for the three-year era and one for the four-year era.

    I’d humbly suggest that instead of self-medicating with a daily dose of your buddy’s poop nuggets, it might be better to wait until a doctor tells you that you have a condition that warrants a fecal transplant, and then tells you what you’re options are for accomplishing that.

    I heard that eating a nugget of poop every time you take a dump makes you healthier.

    Maybe that's what I heard. Eat a nugget of your buddy's poop every day to keep the doctor away.

    If I were a Stanford wrestler in this economy, I would strongly consider options to stay at Stanford (unless I could land a spot at a school like Princeton).
    Wrestling is fun and all, but a good education can open doors when you're trying to pay bills in a few years. Missing out on career opportunities early in life can put you in a hole you'll never quite recover from.

    Their current plan is to institute a hybrid model. Something along the lines of incoming freshman and sophomores will be allowed on campus and in student housing for the Fall quarter only for in-person instruction, then they can't return to campus until June 2021; juniors and graduating seniors on-campus in the Winter quarter only, not allowed back until Fall 2021 at the earliest; and seniors on-campus for the Spring quarter, possibly the Winter for limited-offering type classes they need to graduate or stay on track towards graduation. Transfers and grad students have their own plan. Idk, it sounded kind of confusing and convoluted.
    One of our interns is a Stanford undergrad and she thinks the administration is bracing themselves for a financial cratering next year. Almost everyone she knows is taking a gap year in 2020-21. No one wants to pay Stanford tuition for a semi-Stanford experience, and no one wants to be forced back on-campus either if it'll be unsafe or lead to another "leave now" situation like in March.
    Dropping all those sports is kind of a shock though, and seems so un-Stanford to me. They are so hot on sponsoring non-revenue sports, developing Olympians, having the most NCAA titles, going after the Directors Cup and all that. It's a pretty big part of the school's brand. The cuts totally suck and I agree that Stanford could easily keep all its varsity sports going with the pocket change of a handful of its wealthy alumni. Don't forget though that the school's endowment is illiquid, based on financial assets that are at high risk of losing value with the markets and scarce real estate in and around Palo Alto that the SMC won't want to divest anytime soon.
    However, I disagree with another comment up above that athletics should be run separately from the school. For one, it already is run as a separate entity; but also if athletics was considered an essential part of the educational experience instead of a P&L sheet maybe varsity sports would be treated (protected) a little more like academic departments and student life.
