Stanford Band, Congratulations to the Stanford community for not supporting his football team success (“A lot of empty seats for the best show in town, why could not pull 11-1 team?” Tom Fitzgerald, San Francisco Chronicle, December 12, 2010 ). To really show leadership consistent with its role as one of the best universities in the country, Stanford abandon its Division I / BCS program of intercollegiate football. Large sums of money Division I football program in NCAA competition is a cynical, financially corrupt and hypocritical morbidly obese and unhealthy parts of the 300-series and the provision of concussions disabling injuries that will remain for life a minor league for the NFL’s shameless. The recent incident in which several football players of Ohio State have been suspended for the first five games of next season for NCAA minors defined financial sins is a good example of corruption.
The players remained eligible for the Bowl January 4, 2011 Sugar, because it is big money involved BCS Bowl. According to a report in the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Sugar Bowl CEO Paul Hoolahan admitted to successfully lobbied officials to keep players eligible to not interfere with raking millions in cash, including cuts great state of Ohio’s.
Stanford does not really want to remain part of this world? The time, money and energy devoted to participation in this system could instead be devoted to the legion of world class athletes to Stanford students, men and women who fight for the many sports that really illustrate the spirit and place that college athletics should be, rather than participate in a performance worthy of celebrations of the Roman Colosseum.
In the meantime, I suggest that, in the tradition of ironic, knowing humor illustrated by the Stanford marching band, those who have just plain old guilty pleasure to attend football matches wearing togas to tip us off that they are aware of what they are mixed up in
