Damn good coin in college sports. It’s not that administrators make too much, because they don’t. It’s that the athletes the well paid administrators work so hard to limit are not allowed to earn or accept a nickel over expenses. That’s just wrong. https://t.co/nx8CPbiadw
By the same logic, one should not respond to statements about eliminating cancer with, “Do you speak out on the common cold?” They are not comparable, and that diminishes and misdirects from the issue. Listen. We know what right looks like. Let’s make things right. (3 of 3)
“Looting” is a criminal act involving property, not a systemic evil in our society. Racism and police brutality against black people ARE such systemic evils. They are not equivalent, and one does not have to condemn looting in order to condemn racism. (2 of 3)
Please stop saying “Do you speak out to condemn looting?” as a reply to statements about ending systemic racism and police brutality against the black community. It is a false equivalence, and a misdirection and distraction from the underlying issues. (1 of 3)
This came up in my feed back-to-back. Two great journalists literally putting themselves in harm’s way to keep the public informed. One shoved down by Syracuse Police (Dennis) another (Andrew) by a citizen for his iPhone. I hope and pray they have your support tonight.
The death of former Auburn coach Pat Dye today certainly sparks memories from the 1988 Syracuse-Auburn Sugar Bowl. The 4:50 mark to the end of the video re-visits that time and Dye's unthinkable call to tie that game. https://t.co/3VoS2outU0
It is incredibly frustrating to see a Syracuse Police officer would feel the need to do this, let alone to a true professional like Dennis Nett. Glad Netty is OK. The amount of attacks on journalists by law enforcement this weekend is unacceptable. https://t.co/EtkpDWL8lF
That’s the Syracuse I know.
If there is any good that came out of the turn of events last night, this morning the streets flooded with volunteers helping the city workers and business owners clean up. This is an incredible community. I'm so proud of it! Syracuse has amazing people here 🍊💙
Has the NCAA asked Congress for a “national standard” and “guardrails” on coaches’ salaries? No. Facilities spending? No. Recruiting spending? No. Media rights deals? No. Athlete safety? No. Just LIMITS ON ATHLETES’ ECONOMIC RIGHTS. Embarrassing.
