    I wish there were some way to 'reward' events that are having a good year.

    There's a Power-5 undefeated champion. They'd have to get in before a 1-loss team.
    I want Minn to win out and LSU to lose the SEC Game.
    I'd love...

    Absolutely. There were also thrilled to pay women far less than men until the sport addressed that. This is something that has to be done for the future of the sport.

    If this is face-value true, it softens the blow, but the loss from being in the DL itself, is still a problem. Since the field events can be easily held before the window, and summarized (in video...

    The hinges came off the transfer doors 2 years ago, and it's the Wild West here now, as kids transfer to find the next hot program. Not so bono.

    Totally agree. Both my wife and I remarked about that coming out. On the other hand, Woody Harrelson as Nimitz and Dennis Quaid as Halsey . . .

    Not a representative sample. What we need is a controlled study:
    1000 men
    250 keep their boys intact
    250 lose them
    250 keep them but are given testosterone inhibitors
    250 lose them but are...

    I agree. What's the point of writing something informative if it's so hard to read, both in format (the nonsensical spacing) and her prose style (makes USA Today look erudite).

    Why? He has the best reason to spin it to make himself look good.

    Sorta like 'battered wife syndrome', where, when the police arrive to arrest the husband for domestic abuse, she fights them and says, 'this is just how he shows me how much he loves me!'. :(
