I am not much of a football fan myself, but my friend and his family are. When I go over to his house, most of what his parents talk about is football. I have watched a game with him and his parents, and when something goes wrong in the game, they get too angry and just completely over-react about it. Football is also very over-competetive. To the fans watching the game, it is always about winning and never losing.
As the students buy tickets and merchandise and continue to cheer for their team, there is a constant income of money, and with this comes the need for jobs. Many jobs such as coaches, trainers, athletic administrators, media relations, merchandise sales, restaurants, hotels, stadium employees, and referees, all come from and benefit from the game of college football. Along with the income of the games, there are some donors that only put money towards athletics. Overall, for the sake of the university, college football should not be banned. If something as simple as a sports team can have such a significant impact on an entire university, how can the bad ever out weigh the
soon intervened by making Michael practice and exercise everyday. He had his first game days later in which he tackled so well one of the opposite’s team member that everyone was shocked.

After this he had a few different career choices to pick from. He could go train for the U.S. Olympic wrestling team or play a year of football at Minnesota.

About 25% of each school is made up of athletes, they are made up of people who play football, basketball, beach volleyball, are on the rowing team, etc. It is most likely that all of these people answered “YES” to this survey so really, there are about 10% of students who actually believe athletes should get paid. Why should they get paid though; some are already getting full ride scholarships, they are doing it voluntarily and there are privileges that come along with being an athlete. In high school, athletes who excel among their peers are usually looked at by a college scout, a person who looks for good players who are eligible to play at their school. When these athletes’ skills are extraordinary and are able to impress the scout, they are many times given full scholarships to the college with the condition that they play for the school’s team.
The search begins with his desire to attend college. Education represented on opportunity to escape ignorance and poverty. The ability to attend the Negro college comes to him through hard work.

Another way carter inspired the boys was with determination they studied then though the gym was unlocked and coach carter retired from coaching because the parents didn’t want him to coach anymore but the players wanted him to be there coach so he coached they team again so it was like he never
A job as an athletic director is appealing to me because I love working with people. Learning what I learned from my interview you have to have good people skills. As an athletic director you are working with people most of the day. When I asked what a typical day is for Robert Biaggi an athletic director at Cypress Creek High School in Orlando, he told me that was difficult but he’d try. This is what he told me about a typical day “Before school, I'll spend an average of twenty minutes a day either in scheduling meetings, talking with a coach to check on a game or a custodian to check on game things.
Players are not allowed to accept gifts, clothing, tickets of entertainment, merchandise, special discounts, etc. Anything of that nature will cause a player to be penalized or jeopardize their scholarship. Fans must understand that a college sports is a big business. Once again, the NCAA makes almost 6 billion dollars annually. This money goes into the pockets of coaches, executives, athletic directs, funds the school, and some scholarships.
