Fuck The NCAA Especially for Football

ESPN posted a story about the hundred and fifty greatest NCAA college football games of all time.

No. 1 Nebraska 35, at No. 2 Oklahoma 31
Nov. 25, 1971
The Sooners and Huskers presented Americans with a Thanksgiving feast: 829 yards of total offense, four lead changes, only one penalty and a game billed as the Game of the Century that lived up to the billing. Johnny Rodgers’ 72-yard punt return wasn’t the game winner that people think: It came after Oklahoma’s first possession. Oklahoma scored on five drives of at least 69 yards against a defense that didn’t allow more than 17 points to anyone else. The last of Huskers fullback Jeff Kinney’s four short touchdown runs — this one with 1:38 to play — flipped the scoreboard to the visitors.

4. No. 10 Boston College 47 at No. 12 Miami 45
Nov. 23, 1984
When Doug Flutie scrambled to his right, again confounding the exhausted Hurricane defensive front; when he heaved that 48-yard pass into the end zone scrum with zeroes on the clock; when Gerard Phelan, camped just behind the scrum, caught the ball like it were a punt; when Brent Musburger screamed, “I don’t believe it!” into CBS’s microphone; when the Eagles accepted the Cotton Bowl’s invitation; when Flutie won the 1984 Heisman; when in 2008 Boston College erected a statue of Flutie, shoulders angled as if throwing this very pass: Maybe then we grasped the full meaning of this Hail Mary.

NCAA players should be paid by the colleges.

And not a small amount.

Corporate thieves versus the people.

ps Fuck Miami.
