Lawsuits seek to force NCAA to compensate college athletes

Not much in life is really free! The free full-ride scholarships provided to college athletes are anything but free. They involve being and working at at university year-round. The exhausting physical work amounts to a full time job. An athlete is not allowed to earn any income while enrolled in school. I saw other students with money they had earned and as an athlete I didn't even have the same privilege. Contact sports take a physical toll on one's body that must be dealt with for the rest of one's life. For instance, later today I'm getting a total knee replacement. I also had several other surgeries as a result of the time I "played" college sports. The universities and athletic departments including the NCAA make millions of dollars from their athletic teams. Everyone seems to make money in intercollegiate sports except the athlete. It is about time this is changed!

Should student-athletes get a cut of NCAA revenues?

KU Chancellor Gray-Little says school may pursue civil litigation in ticket scandal

If KU files a insurance claim for reimbursement of the stolen ticket money the right of recovery is transferred to the insurance company. The insurance company in turn will subrogate against the responsible parties to recover the money paid out on the claim. Thus, once a claim is filed KU can not legally seek reimbursement from those responsible for the stolen tickets.

Gill names Webb starting QB for Saturday

In several posts many of you have requested changes be made to improve the team. Coach Gill has now made some changes in personal. One of two things will now happen, the changes will work or they won't! If they don't work it will be very obvious. Just let the Coach Gill do what he is paid to do, coach the Jayhawk Football Team.

Lester 'shocked' by Perkins' resignation

Perkins' helped create some of KU's best times but sadly he also helped create some of the worst times for KU. It only took 2 million dollars to get him out the door? Enough about greed! Now,let's clean up the KU Athletic Department!!!
