We all know about the schools moving like rabbits to follow the money trail left by football, I do not blame the jesuit 7 from the Big East for splitting, I would too. But it is ridiculous, musical conferences, who gets the cash? Has not a damn thing to do with academics or the students or the athletes. It is greed. Money.
Cronin finally let her fly and I salute the man. I agree with him 100%- Pay the players if schools can do this bs routine following the football money trail. I prefer college hoops myself.........
“I don’t blame them,” Cronin said. “It’s a shame that football, one sport, has
dictated all this and the money that one sport apparently is swinging around and
swaying universities to make the decisions. We’re sitting here in a state where
the state school is 800 miles from its closest road game. It’s ridiculous. Don’t
tell me that people care about student-athletes.”
“Lost in the shuffle in all this is our volleyball team, our
soccer team, Marshall’s tennis team,” Cronin said. “It’s all ridiculous. Let’s
call it what it is. I’ve thought about this long and hard and I’ve waited to say
this. If it’s all about this much money and money grabbing, the players need to
HELL YES they should be paid. lol Give em Hell Mick, I'm right next to ya on this one man.
