    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (Week of May 10th, 2021)

    I didn’t say the schools should pay the athletes directly. Athletes are prohibited from pursuing avenues to profit off of their own image and are the only college students that are banned from this simply because they receive a free education. Are they the only students receiving a free...

    Illinois Hoops Recruiting Thread (Week of May 10th, 2021)

    Confused why this is in quotes as if an 18 year old who is legally an adult is not in fact legally an adult. Whether you view them as an adult is irrelevant to the point. Regardless, I’m not seeing any argument against adults making money off of the value generated by themselves and their own work.

    A free education should not preclude an adult from profiting off of their own name, image, or likeness.

    Big Ten Cancels Fall Football (CFB Thread)

    This was honestly the only thing they could do given all available data. I hate that it’s come to this but it is what it is. I am annoyed however as well bc it seems as though for many involved, this was not even a remote possibility until Dan Patrick broke the news, and you’d have thought the...

    Illini Football & CFB 2020

    100% agree that we all messed it up and are in a bad spot. However seeing how NCAAB, NBA, NHL, MLB had everything either interrupted by the virus or shut down completely should’ve shown the administrators how vulnerable football would be to this virus. A wait and see approach is the easiest one...

    Illini Football & CFB 2020

    The key difference between all the other examples and FBS football conferences (and the NFL for that matter) is the gift of time. There was time to prepare if you are a major FBS conference. The planning may have still resulted in a cancelled/postponed season, but it doesn’t appear that they...
