Get Football Out Of Our Universities2014-Nov-20

Get Football Out Of Our Universities

 

(In which I take on the football industrial complex, and get myself in trouble)

 

The Super Bowl is over, finally. The college football season is over too. Now we can be spared the breathless, hyperbolic stories about football for a few months, at least until next season. The culture of football in American universities is completely out of control. It is undermining our education system and hurting our competitiveness in technology, science, and engineering. will eventually be little more than the big, dumb jock on the world stage good for entertainment on the weekend, but not taken seriously otherwise.

 

Too harsh? I don't think so. I think we need to eliminate football entirely from our universities if we want to maintain our pre eminent position as the world's scientific and technological leader.

 

Why do we need to get football out of our universities? I've watched over the years as football has taken an ever more prominent role in our high schools and colleges, as football coaches have been paid ever higher salaries, and as football staffs and stadiums have been super sized. All of this effort goes to the care and feeding of a very small number of (exclusively) male students, most of whom get a poor education and almost none of whom succeed as professional players. Our universities are providing a free training ground for the super wealthy owners of professional football teams, while getting little in return.

 

This has got to stop. The core mission of our universities is to educate our students, not to entertain them with big time sports events. Our political leaders, and all too often our university presidents, seem to have lost sight of this fact.

 

So I was very pleasantly surprised when President Obama, in his State of the Union speech on January 25, put in a plea for science over football:

 

"We need to teach our kids that it's not just the winner of the Super Bowl who deserves to be celebrated, but the winner of the science fair."

 

Wow, not bad! Of course, as a politician he has to support football, so he argues only that the science fair deserves equal footing with football. (Even that is radical for a politician.) I'll go a big step further: the winner of the science fair deserves far more praise and celebration than any winner of any football game. If football disappeared, we could get our entertainment from another sport, as we do every year after the football season ends. But if we stop producing scientists, other countries will make the discoveries that solve the technological, medical, and engineering problems of the future, and that form the basis for great civilizations.

 

Now that I've gotten myself in trouble with football fans (and there are many of them), let me get myself in even more trouble, with an example from my own university.

 

At the University http://www.coltsnflprostore.com/Nike-Darius-Butler-Jersey.html of Maryland last year, the football coach fell out of favor with the athletic director, who wanted to replace him. (This despite the fact that the coach was very successful, with an overall winning record.) The problem was, he had one more year to go in his contract, and the university would have to pay him a cool $2 million if they fired him. U. Maryland doesn't exactly have money to burn: for three years running, it has imposed furloughs on all employees and prohibited all raises, including cost of living increases. So you'd think that blowing $2 million to pay a coach to sit on the sidelines, and paying who knows how much to hire a new coach, would be out of the question.

 

Nope. The brand new President of the university, in office just one month, announced the hiring of a new coach, along with a $2 million payout to the old coach.

 

What a bad move. That $2 million have been spent on, well, how about educating the students? (And don't get me started on football coaches' salaries they often make 3 5 times more than their own presidents.)

 

Do we want our universities to be known for their football teams? Or do we want them to be known as educational powerhouses? Apparently, the U. Maryland administration is more interested in building a better football team. Not surprisingly, many of the professors disagree. I can only hope that the students would side with the professors, but I honestly don't know.

 

you do realize that in american society they have a choice of Matt Ryan Youth Jersey what they want to donate to? also alabama is a special case. to get into alabama you only need a 2.4 or 2.5 gpa to get into without sports. you really think that getting rid of football is going to improve their admission process? football is what keeps lots of universities running. the revenue that they get from football goes into other programs such as your science. without football that revenue stream is gone. so i guess you want universities to have money problems? just wondering. if anything why dont we get rid of other sports that are wasting students time. like baseball

 

Excuse me for a second, are you really saying that kicking a ball into a soccer net is more intelligent than throwing one threw a system of defense to an open receiver? Ignorant opinion based article. As for health and safety, soccer FANS aren't even safe. I have nothing against soccer, mind you, I've just used that sport here. As MANY U's receive MILLIONS from their football programs and use some of that in other areas, which areas do you think we shut down after the football revenue is gone? I know, we'll take out the Math Dept. Sound good?

 

I would have thought an article on a forbes website would have been a touch more well thought out and argued, but alas! So (in my best Samuel L. Jackson voice) "Allow me to reort!"

 

You make several vague claims here, providing no statisitcs or facts to back them up and often rely on suggestion to get your point across. Allow me to address your "concerns" on a point by point basis.

 

A) You start off by complaining that universities "all of this effort goes to the care and feeding of a very small number of (exclusively) male students, most of whom get a poor education"

 

Number One, what effort do the universities really put into it? The athletic departments handle most of the day to day opertions of football. The professors and deans do almost zero work (beyond a football players capacity as a student) with the team. Therefore, what effort is wasted? The effort of a department (athletic) that may not even exist without the football team? A grossly misleading statement on your part, Matt Ryan Jersey to say the least.

 

Secondly, you claim most of the football team gets a poor education. You may be interested to now that the University of Alabama had a 67% graduation rate the spring after winning a national title in football. The average graduation rate Roddy White Red Jersey for the US hovers around 55%. These national title winning players graduated at a greater rate than the average student.

 

B)You make the claim that, "if we stop producing scientists, other countries will make the discoveries that solve the technological, medical, and engineering problems of the future, and that form the basis for great civilizations." I realize this was in a sub point concerning the need to give science fair winners more accolades than football players, but in an article enititled "Get Football Out of Our Universities" that line has the effect of suggesting to the reader that you can't have a top football team and produce great scientists. Of course, Auburn, who won the nationa championship this year and is one of the top engineering schools in the country, and Stanford, who won the orange bowl while also maintaining its lofty academic perch, would beg to differ with such a suggestion.

 

C) You point out that Maryland "blew" 2 million dollars on firing their football coach. You then suggest that said money have been used for, "educating students." You are either grossly misinformed about hos college football coaches are paid, or grossly (and intentionally) misleading I for one would like to know which. Only a fraction of football coachess salaries are paid by the university. The vast majority is paid by private boosters and contracts for things like speaking engagements and endorsement deals (the University of Alabama pays only a two or three hundred thousand of Saban's 4 million dollar deal). These are boosters who give money SPECIFICALLY FOR football. It does NOT take away resources from other students.

 

D) You point out (quite correctly) that football makes a profit. Then very ignorantly state "Universities could make a profit running a casino too they do that?" The profit that comes from football cannot be measured strictly by dollars the program brings in.

 

First, the dollrs measured in athletic department budgets does not include the amount of advertising a university gets from football. Football has year round access to the one of the most watched networks in America, ESPN (which accounts for half of the revenue brought in by Disney). This advertising potential is very apparent both historically and in the present. For example, when George Denny took over as president of the University of Alabama in 1912, there were only 652 students. Denny used Alabama's triumphs in the Rose Bowl to help grow the University to over 5,000 when he retired in 1936. a 1994 poll taken at Alabama (and broadcast during the Georgia game) showed the football team was a major contributing factor in 74% of the students decision to attend the university.

 

Second, alumni www.nflfalconsofficial.com/Nike-Julio-Jones-Jersey.html donations at most major football powers increase during years when the football team does well. Why? Quite simply, there is an emotional attachment to sports teams that represent your school that simply aren't there with strictly money making advertisements. As Paul "Bear" Bryant (Alabama coach AND graduate) noted in a debate on this very subject, "its kind of hard to rally around a math class." Natural human nature leads us to rally around popular athletic events (see the ancient Greeks).

 

E)You claim you wish students to participate in sports, but sporting events are very expensive affairs. Football programs across the country allow these events to take place becuase of revenue provided by the football team. Without the funding provided by the football team, these other sports in which students participate might do the very thing you (incorrectly!) worried that the football team was doing, namely take funding away from education.

 

F) You mention the Ivy League, but don't mention how they relate to your argument. Are they great universities BECAUSE they don't have football programs? If that is the argument you are making, it is a poor one at best. After all, if you look at universities such as Texas and Florida, you will see their rankings as universities rose even as their football teams tiumphed on the gridiron. If you are making the point that football teams are not needed to be great universities, you are ignoring the built in advantages that the Ivy Leagues have over most state universities, advantages such as: 1) being older, hence having a great head start over more recently founded state universities in terms of building a reputation and and hefty endowment. State universities have used football to attract a larger student population, hence gaining more present dollars in state funding and future dollars in alumni gifts. 2) Having a head start on reputation (thus not having to advertise to bring in the students it wants.

 

G) You say "The football industrial complex has too much power over our universities." By conflating this term with "military industrial complex" you are making a deliberate comparison to the term "military industrial complex" popularized Roddy White Jersey during the Vietnam War and associated (in many people's minds) with the needless deaths of soldiers and Vietnamese civilians. Such a comparison is both irresponsible and insulting.

 

Finally, I was particularly amused with your footnote, which reads, "Note to my friends in other countries: by "football" I mean American football, that game with the peculiar oblong shaped ball not the wonderful game of soccer, which almost all other countries call 'football.'" I find it particularly sad that use this article to run football out of universities, while calling soccer "wonderful." You have more sympathy for a sport known for its oft occuring riots (which frequently result in damage to property, injuries to fans, and sometimes even death) than you do for a beloved American sport. Your priorities are greatly misplaced and poorly thought out. I would expect better from a posting on Forbes website.

In this Dec. 16, 2013 photo, Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz watches during an NFL football game against the Baltimore Ravens at Ford Field in Detroit.(AP Photo/Rick Osentoski). Detroit Lions Derek Carr Authentic Jersey quarterback Matthew Stafford (9) walks off the field after Baltimore Ravens free safety Matt Elam (26) intercepted his pass during the fourth quarter of an NFL football game in Detroit, Monday, Dec. 16, 2013.By SCOTT HELDALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz isn interested in talking about his job security.The Lions blew another late lead and lost at home Monday night to Baltimore, 18 16. The Lions (7 7) have led the NFC North much of the season, but may miss the playoffs after losing four of their last five games. Detroit needs to win its final two games and hope for a combination of losses by division leader Chicago and Green Bay to secure a playoff berth.If job security is on Schwartz mind, it didn show on Tuesday."I don think it does any good for me or my team to keep focusing on that," he said after being asked if he worried about losing his job. He declined to elaborate on what he thinking about his future or if he spoken with owner William Clay Ford recently."I look at it like we one game down with two to play," he said. "As much as it keeps sounding like the same thing, it true. We can let anything detract from that."The luster of the Lions 6 3 start has faded and the team, which entered last weekend with the division lead, walked off the field Monday third in the division. The Lions are 1 4 since a Nov. 10 win at Chicago left them in the driver seat. Losses at Pittsburgh and at home to Tampa Bay were among the lowlights.The struggling New York Giants come to town Sunday for the Lions home finale and Detroit finishes the season Dec. 29 at Minnesota."We had some very winnable games; very, very winnable games," safety Glover Quin said. "For us not to win those games, it heartbreaking. But we got two more that we can go out and win and, hey, all you can do is fight to the finish. We got to win our games hopefully somebody helps us out."Schwartz, who has lost eight straight December/January games as coach, according to STATS, has two years left on his contract. The franchise has not disclosed details of the contract extension he signed after leading the Lions to a wild card berth after the 2011 season.That was Detroit only winning season under Schwartz, www.nflraidersofficial.com/Nike-Khalil-Mack-Jersey.html who is 29 49 over five seasons.The coach hardly is the only man to blame for the Lions woes.Quarterback Matthew Stafford has thrown nine interceptions in the Lions last four games including three against the Ravens and All Pro receiver Calvin Johnson had a pair of critical drops in what has been another standout season. Untimely penalties and clock management decisions also have hurt.Some wondered about the Lions strategy as Ravens kicker Justin Tucker lined up for a 61 yard field goal that turned out to the game winner. Even keeping the 6 5 Johnson or 6 7 tight end Joseph Fauria back to swat the ball before it made it to the crossbar crossed Schwartz mind."You can goal tend a field goal," Schwartz said. "Believe me, that been thought of before."Notes: Tight end Brandon Pettigrew was injured late in the game and underwent tests on an ankle Tuesday. Schwartz said cornerbacks Chris Houston (toe) and Darius Slay (knee) could return this weekend. Both players missed Monday game.

Brett Favre return2014-Nov-20

Brett Favre return

 

Oh no, not another Brett Favre story right? I realize that most people are tired of hearing about whether or not Brett Favre is going to come back for another season. Well, I not.

 

It looks as though Favre is going to decide to play one more season. Over the last few years Favre has gotten a lot of grief over his inability to make a decision on his decision to return to football. The reason I want to write about this today is that I was listening to Steven A. Smith on the radio talk about how disgusting he thinks Brett Favre is. He thinks it disgusting that Favre leaves his team hanging, that he decides to have ankle surgery in May rather than in January, and that this allows him not to report to training camp. He also http://www.nflfalconsofficial.com/Nike-Tyson-Jackson-Jersey.html referred to Favre as a whore and many other people believe this to be true as well. I, on the other hand, am not one of those people. Over the past number of years I have been a huge Favre fan. I feel that Favre constant indecision throughout the last portion of his career as well as many other of his questionable decisions are justified.

 

First off, give me a good reason to tell me why Brett Favre should have to go to training camp. The media is constantly on Favre about avoiding training camp and why this is not good for his team. This was especially apparent last year when I kept hearing that him not going to training camp would not allow Farve to develop a good relationship and chemistry with his future teammates in Minnesota. Yeah good call guys. If everyone hasn noticed Favre is getting a little old. The fact that Favre avoids training camp most likely allows Jake Matthews Red Jersey him to be fresher for the season ahead. This may have some small implications at the start of the season, such as Favre not having his timing down, but as the season goes on it is crucial that Favre body does not wear down and not going to training camp gives him a bit of an Paul Soliai Women Jersey edge in this regard. Also, no one likes training camp, and if teams are willing to let Brett Favre avoid training camp then why shouldn he. Are teams telling Brett Favre that he has to go to training camp in order to play for their team? No they aren They are accommodating him as best they can because he still is one of the elite quarterbacks in the NFL. If teams are going to allow him to avoid training camp, I don see anything wrong with it.

 

Media whore? Steven A. Smith called Brett Favre a media whore multiple times during a span of 7 or 8 minutes today and I sure it isn the first time he has called him that. Sorry members of the media, but Brett Favre is not a media whore. Brett Favre inability to make a decision stems from one thing, and one thing only. That is Brett Favre inability to make a decision. Favre is not out for publicity nor is he calling for the public to remind him of how much they want him back for another season. He is just unable to come to a conclusion about his playing future. www.nflfalconsofficial.com/Nike-Devin-Hester-Jersey.html I think this happens for a couple of reasons. First, after Paul Soliai Youth Jersey another grueling NFL season, Favre is bruised, battered, and exhausted. As the season draws to a close Favre has the idea in his head that he Jake Matthews Youth Jersey can take another year of the pain and tiredness of the NFL.

Brett Favre has given so much to the NFL, I think it time that we recognize this and give him the credit that he deserves.
