-Says he hates salary caps but thinks the parity the NFL cap has produced is a key to the league's success.
-Blamed the death of a pro wrestler on steroids despite the coroner's finding to the contrary (surely the coroner being a doctor needed a medical consult from him).
- Has "borrowed" material from others without attribution, also known as plagiarism.
But back to the point. What follows is a tweet with his pronouncement. A weird pronouncement from a self-proclaimed capitalist covering sports given that other than the Arkansas - ULM series designed to help ULM remain FBS, the schools of FBS don't schedule games for charity, they schedule to make profits, or to win games that will help improve profits. Surely he knows that.
Anyway, the tweet and some great responses.

Colin Cowherd got our name right and we were first to pop into his head.That counts as intense coverage for a non-AQ school. #proud— The End Around (@EndAroundReport) May 31, 2013
The tweets then merrily veer into Ohio State president Gordon Gee's pronouncement about the big boys needing to leave if schools aren't going to let them do exactly what they want to do.
We need a modern remake of the movie Hoosiers where South Bend refuses to play Hickory and forces them to reclassify while the crowd cheers.— The End Around (@EndAroundReport) May 30, 2013
Another good sports movie would be "We are Marshall Part II" where Saban, Slive, Gee and Delany show up and sneer at their athletic budget.— The End Around (@EndAroundReport) May 30, 2013
Arkansas State has a lot of wins the last 2 seasons while spending far fewer millions than a bunch of losers. It is positively un-American.— The End Around (@EndAroundReport) May 31, 2013
We live in an age of College Football robber barons where fans brag about how much money their school wasted instead of championships.— The End Around (@EndAroundReport) May 31, 2013
