Coming on CBS sometime this hour, interested to see if there's anything interesting here or just more of the same.
God save Dave Brandon
"Those Who Stay...Will be Champions"
Very good piece.
11 National Titles | 42 Conference Titles | 3 Heisman Winners | 78 All-Americans | 37 College Hall of Fame Members
Wow...that was basically an entire piece on Michigan...didn't expect that.
Ya, like 65-70% us, most of the rest Bama, and a tiny bit on Towson. Definitely don't mind being put up with (and, frankly, overshadowing) the Tide like that.
I was out of the house and missed it. Can someone give a little more information of what the story was about?
Yeah, didn't get a chance to catch it. If anyone could provide a summary, that'd be greatly appreciated.
just talking about how the majority of the income needed to sustain all the sports at a university comes from football. they also talked about why div 2 schools and mac/wac etc... schools agree to play bcs schools if you know you're going to lose. the towson coach said he agreed to play lsu because more people are going to watch that one game than all of towson's games put together; great publicity and advertising for the school plus they make a half million dollars playing them witch is a lot of money for these schools.

This is a must see
60 Minutes on CBS News: Has college football become a campus commodity? - Bigger is better in college football, where new stadiums and longer seasons can mean big revenue for schools. Armen Keteyian reports.

Here is the "overtime" footage that goes more behind the scenes at the Michigan football program
60 Minutes on CBS News: 60 Minutes Overtime, 11.18.12 - boats are being used by Colombian cartels to move large amounts of cocaine. Could terrorists use them for WMDs?
That was excellent, thanks for posting.
Thanks for the info, guys!
The business side of football supporting all of the other sports (well probably not basketball and hockey) is why I am against paying players a large sum. The moment that money starts going to the players you will see other sports fold so fast.
This is a really interesting look. I like seeing Hoke fired up in the locker rooms and such because everywhere else you see him it feels like you are talking to a wall because he doesn't want to give anything away.
Also so glad we have Dave Brandon.

The argument that lacrosse/volleyball/soccer players are more deserving of money generated by football players than the football players are seems highly dubious to me.
Go ahead and give it to football players then and have that along with maybe hockey and basketball be the only sports we have at the varsity level. College football will become the mini NFL.

I completely agree....that was an awesome side of Hoke I really havent seen before....just being real "away" from the camera
