Going on on every campus in the U.S. I could tell you stories going on at D3 programs within a few hours drive of Stilly that would make you blush. Even the D3 schools have sold their souls to football. It's just like the big boys. All about money. Only things are in reverse. These schools have 200+ football players on the roster that are paying the school to play ball. That's big bucks for these schools. There are no admissions standards and the entire curriculum of the school is dumbed down to pass these guys, most of whom cannot pass a "real" college level class.

It's a little different twist, but it's all about the money regardless.
I can't disagree, the rot is all the way down to HS and Little League. The three major aforementioned programs have taken it to a new level, but there are those people can't help but try to top them.

Don't let Baylor off the hook due to lack of charges/court proceedings. That was one of the biggest foul parts of their mess, was that they actively (from highest levels of Admin down to assistant coaches) snuffed investigations and harassed victims (I remember one victim was a female student-athlete; volleyball player?) to the point that most of the victims lives were affected. Baylor deserves nothing positive.

The volleyball player got the worst of it, that's the one that got Briles pushed out if I remember right. Lebby's wife was the one that started the Keep CAB.

Also, didn’t the NCAA essentially stay outta the Baylor “mess” because they don’t deal with “criminal offenses”.

And I’d argue, that what happened on Baylor’s campus far overshadows every recruiting or bribery violation combined for the history of the NCAA’s existence. There was actual, life-changing, physical harm that happened at Baylor.
I was about to argue it could have been considered lack of institutional control, but I guess technically the institution was in complete control the entire time.

Dude, why would most people spend their Labor Day weekend in 100 degree heat in a stadium with no canopy to watch a win over a MAC school?

That doesn’t even make sense man.

UCLA's attendance was likely included season ticket owners that didn't show up. In reality it was worse. WAY worse. Personally it pisses me off how many schools do this as it makes it impossible to get real attendance numbers.

Said every casual ever. They arent called fanatics because they are normal people. Some programs have them, others dont. If you go , may as well stay for the whole game. You know ahead of time how hot it's going to be

IIRC Oregon State is renovating their stadium and only has fans on one side.

even baylor doesn't have tarps anymore (I'm sure it's still they are holding on to it, just incase)
