John Pinckney ENG-123-Q2182 Michael Brien 12/1/2013 AMATEUR ATHLETES FOR PAY – MYTHS AND REALITY The play stunned the nation. The Alabama Crimson Tide, consecutive NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) college football champions, living on the precipice of a football championship dynasty unknown for two decades – three straight national NCAA football championships - allowed a last minute “miracle” touchdown return to arch rival Auburn with no time remaining, thereby ruining their chance for immortality. This ended one of the all-time college football classics, watched by approximately 10 million shocked television viewers who, no doubt, felt lucky enough to witness one of the greatest games in recent history. The Alabama/Auburn
They also didn't have the pad quality like there is today, the NFL in the 50's didn't even have shoulder pads for their players. Football was just one of the many pasttime for Americans. The College Football Era Notre Dame started out the 50's as the nation's #1 riding a 38 game win streak, but by the end of the college football season the unbeaten Oklahoma Sooners
Penn State Should Have Received the Death Penalty! How did Penn State not receive the “Death Penalty”? I am completely dumbfounded by the “hand-slap” sanctions handed out to the university by the N.C.A.A. A sixty million dollar fine (equal to one year of revenue for the football program), a four year bowl ban, a reduction of grants-in-aid (scholarships), five years of probation, and a vacation of one hundred eleven wins dating back to 1998. This does not include penalties to be determined by the N.C.A.A.
The first aspect of the argument was that the college football program wastes much money appropriated from the slashed academic budgets (Buzz Bissinger 2012). In fact, the average students and players get no benefits from the college football program. However, coaches of a football team such as Nick Saban of the University of Alabama and Bob Stoops of the University of Oklahoma got obscene millions from academic budgets that should be used for academic purposes (Buzz Bissinger, 2012). Meanwhile, football facilities
“The ranking system consists of five major components: subjective polls of the writers and coaches, computer rankings, schedule strength, a team’s record, and quality wins versus top fifteen ranked teams in the weekly BCS standings. The two teams with the lowest point total in these categories will play in the National Championship game” (Hales 109). The problem here is that the team does not control most of these factors. If a team has a bad reputation, the writers and coaches may not vote for it in the polls, based solely on reputation. The teams also do not get to choose their opponents, so strength of schedule is also out of their control.
Michael Barbuto College Writing October 2, 2013 Professor Eaton Descriptive Essay Last year playing high school football was probably one of the most entertaining and exciting things I have ever done in my entire life. The reasoning behind this is that we had an outstanding team which sent eighteen kids off to play college football. Therefore, eighteen out of twenty one people were sent off to play college football, which is pretty good in my eyes. When experiencing high school football, it is all about brotherhood and family throughout the whole entire team. This year playing football for Springfield is not the same as last year in high school because I’m not as close with the people on my college team.
We open up for Old Say brook high school the score was 45-0 and yes we were the winners. The whole season was just about that; Hyde the winners and the opponents the losers. We made it all the way to be the number one seed in the class s state playoffs. We went through the whole regular season undefeated, but that last game which was the first playoff game we lost not because they were better but because we were not focused on the task at hand. To be honest I do not take losing easy but when it was all over I have to say this was a character builder it tells me to stay focused and when on a team I need to pull my teammates a long with
