The current state of college sports is fucking retarded

If you’re familiar with collegiate CLUB sports then you’re more or less familiar with what all college sports were like prior to the foundation of the NCAA.  If you’re not familiar, many schools field teams outside of official varsity competition that act as clubs, not athletic department activities.  Many schools have club teams in sports like ice hockey, lacrosse and rugby.  These teams usually compete against teams within the same region and get most of their nationwide kicks at one or two big tournaments.  This means that colleges of various sides play each other and they even compete against non-college clubs.  These teams may or may not have professional coaches but they do take themselves seriously.

Compare this to the NCAA sports, which require extensive travelling, professional coaching staffs that spend as much time recruiting as coaching staffs and big losses.  Yes, very, very few athletic departments actually produce a profit.  Even if your school’s football and basketball teams are popular their revenue probably can’t offset the losses incurred by the track, golf, tennis, soccer, etc. teams.  Schools treat their sports like big PR machines and they rely on dumbass boosters to sponsor the whole thing.

That’s the worst thing about college sports; there are tens or perhaps hundreds of thousands of dumbshits donating hundreds of millions of dollars every year to the athletic departments of this country.  And for what?  The pride that comes with your alma mater winning some fucking games?  Why are you proud?  When Florida football, which I grudgingly semi-support because I love Jesus Christ, all it really says is that UF is the best at recruiting and probably has a big budget.  It’s not like we’re dealing with an even playing field, especially when teams like Florida pack their schedule with cupcakes like The Citadel.  When a school’s football team reflects the coach’s recruiting efforts and NOT the actual school population at large then there’s no real representation at all.  It would be like if the UK recruited a bunch of basketball players from the USA, nationalized them and made them the UK national basketball team.

It’s just awful that all these people are donating big bucks to something as stupid as college sports.  Newsflash: No one deserves $4 million to coach a fucking football team, especially in college!  Donate your money where it might be useful, like the Humane Society!  Boo yah!

  1. OR begin an ancillary donation fund to addend the ridiculously-poor pay rates of the professors AT these schools with ridiculously overpaid coaching staffs. Or lower-level schooling strata, for that matter–grade schools; high schools; so on… If teachers were incentivized to work at schools otherwise understaffed and -funded, we wouldn’t NEED institutions like the Humane Society, because society-at-large wouldn’t be so chock-full of fucking mongoloids who haven’t an ounce of common sense or empathy due their poor social and mental training.

    But yeah, organized sports in GENERAL are for degenerates.

  2. I’m going to have to disagree to some extent. It’s probably true that spectator sports are for degenerates, which admittedly makes me a degenerate. However, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with playing in your local recreational soccer/basketball/etc. league or something like that. It’s exercise and it’s fun without 50,000 raving lunatics cheering/jeering.

  3. You’re not disagreeing with me a’TALL, then. What I was referring to when citing “organization” is the practice of paying adults millions of dollars to “recreate,” as you say, in the manner that children do every day for FREE.
