    You almost have to respect the University of Alabama for so boldly and dickishly doubling down on the extreme inequality that plagues college athletics, without even the slightest care for the awful optics of their decadence. Almost.

    Nick Saban already makes at least $8 million a year. Basketball coach Avery Johnson, who reportedly “ran a lap around his office” when he saw yesterday’s news, gets $3 million annually. Meanwhile, their players get minimal compensation despite their massive value to the school. The extra millions from those salaries alone could already be easily redistributed to the athletes who actually deserve it. But now, Alabama has announced $600 million more that won’t go towards paying the players, because every athletic department has to pretend that it’s not making a profit.

    Instead of wages for labor or maybe funding for educational purposes, that $600 million will be spent on upgrades for their football and basketball stadiums to become even more efficient at bilking nostalgic rich alums out of their money under the guise of “donations.”

    Not unreasonable. I watched the presser and one of the reporters asked what he would say to Courtney, the look on his face was interesting, the response seemed a little canned.

    Interesting curveball picks in Oregon and Mississippi State.

    And any comments about my predicted record for Notre Dame in 2018 where I picked them at 8-4 overall?

    I mean it’s likely that Alabama or Georgia will win the sec. But I threw bets on Mississippi state and Florida to win the conference. I said Georgia last year and was right about that one. I think miss state is the team best equipped to beat bama at Bryant Denny this year.

    Obviously Washington is the favorite in the pac 12, but Oregon has got a nice amount of starters coming back. Herbert is head and shoulders a better player than browning. Herbert is my heisman pick.

    8-4 is fair. They could easily lose to Michigan and Stanford at home. Notre dame under Kelly is much better at home though then on the road. That being said I have no faith they will beat teams such as Virginia tech, USC and, even Northwestern. I think they’ll find a way to get to 9 wins. It depends on the quarterback who got exposed last year. Teams stacked the box and shut down the run and they couldn’t pass. Defense should be strong again. They have enough talent to beat everybody on the schedule, it’s the coaching I mainly worry about

    I looked at bamas schedule, They get Missouri and A and M at home this year too, those are teams I expect to improve off of last year. If those were away games, who knows. Then of course Miss state at home, but also auburn.
