    I agree that pretty much all NFL players have gone to university. Most genuinely seem to appreciate the value of their education. However, I do not agree that American football fans share the same...

    Yeah, I agree with Marton here. I think it's very cool that he was able to earn a medical degree and a roster spot on a super bowl team (both significant achievements on their own). But, putting this...

    Agreed. I feel that this is the best shot the AUS has at getting back to relevance. It is a long term play, but it will bring about the kind of change that will be sustainable. Many will argue that...

    I agree that moving to an 8 team playoff format is not solving the problem, while adding more expense. To me, this is a patch fix and a hope that everything works out. I think the format would ensure...

    I agree with most of this. Changing the playoff format is a band-aid on a gaping wound. Blake Nill's reign at SMU coincided with some rules that existed at the time that were advantageous to the AUS....

    Acadia defense keeping this game very respectable. But, so far the offense has been underwhelming. The wind is definitely a factor. Acadia have had a lot of success this year in the air, but has been...
