    Can't take the bus if you live in the islands.

    Shut every one of them down, unless sustained without public moneys.

    For a guy who hates Magary for hating stuff, you sure hate a lot of stuff. ;)

    It's not an inalienable right to have a Division I football program.

    I'm wondering if this is just a gimmick to bring in more alumni donations. "We might have to cut the nursing program" draws in fewer donations than "We might have to cut football."

    Magary feigns hate because he's a whore and can't write anything straight.
    Mostly he just seems to hate himself.
    I hate college athletics- I would have thought events of three years ago would have taught us we don't need this around any more as a society.

    I'm assuming you mean Sandusky.

    If so, what's your position on the Catholic Church or, for that matter, any other organization hit by a sex scandal?

    You think NCAAF, speaking in isolation, has been besieged by just a single scandal?
    Tear down the entire rotten edifice.

    Hawaii is in a tough spot. Travel is so expensive and they typically don't draw very well at home unless it's when a top team comes in.

    I wonder if they could go independent and play more home games. Teams love using a game against Hawaii as a recruiting tool, so I don't think they'd have trouble finding games. They could be the exact opposite of one of the smaller programs who get their butts kicked by several programs to fund the program.

    Top-25 level teams have become reluctant to travel to Hawaii because of repeated and blatant ass-fuckings by homer officiating crews, bordering on outright game-fixing.

    I believe the Big Ten has an unwritten policy that conference teams are only allowed to play at Hawaii if they bring an all-B1G officiating crew.

    Probably not a bad move. I doubt Hawaii would protest too much if it meant getting a top team like Ohio State or Michigan to come to Hawaii for a game.

    Could Hawaii go independent and play every game at home? Its men's basketball team only has two road OOC road games, and they're at Seattle and Salt Lake City. The women's team has a two-game swing through Colorado before conference.

    Go indy, bring in a bunch of big teams and rake in the cash and stay home in the process.
