Your letters... my answers...
This morning the New York Times ran an essay by Ben Mathis-Lilly, "Does Watching College Football on TV Have to be so Miserable?", which brilliantly summarizes the impact the college money grab has had on fans, TV and probably more so the paying ones in attendance. It blends well with your ongoing coverage of the PAC12 drama and domino effect. In fact, John, I had to keep checking to be sure you hadn't written it (or do you have a pen name?). In my case, I accept the degradation of the product because I can still watch for free (four hours at a time, as Ben points out). The loyal paying fan, which I once was and still miss the tailgating, has really taken it on the chin as regards the experience of being there. I remember someone once saying that corporate America seems to always take a good thing and drive it into the ground like a garden stake. Ben makes the case.
You might consider the "Intern over 50/60 for a day" as an item in your fundraiser.
John I'm not sure how much you follow local high school football. Central Catholic is playing St. John Bosco Friday Sept. 9th at Autzen Stadium. My grandson plays for Central Catholic and is excited for the opportunity to play them, especially at Autzen!
Witnesses would win. Brilliant answer.
If the Pac 12 needed a reason to keep my Aztecs out, the SDSU administration may have handed it to them. Sitting on this information for a year? And then having it coming the week before Snapdragon opens is awful.
But to those with glass houses, has something similar happened at YOUR schools, Mr. Presidents?
If you let me intern for you and you give me a camera and say to me don’t say a word if you see someone famous. I will be quiet as a church mouse.
