Beating up on Maryland-Eastrn
Shore..... wow, big
your in the Fu$%#ng ACC
now,... if anything else
happened besides a
BLOWOUT in this game you
should forfeit your season. I
had no idea that your
expectations were this low
These are national championships that do not matter. In college sports only football and Men's basketball matter to anyone other than the kid playing the sport and the parents of these kids. I do not even know why colleges give scholarships in these sports. I think it would be better to fund academic stars.
If you think rowing is important than you should at least give VT props for having individual national champions in track. Numerous occasions in recent history.
I just do not care if we win one in a non-revenue sport if that means we need to take a bunch of foreign kids to win in a sport that no one cares about. If it makes you fell good and it strokes your ego all the power to you. We could have won a soccer championship if w ehad continued to bring in german kids that did not care about school. We were very close if you remember. Their ar etons of colleges bringing in all foreign tennis teams to try and win a title. That is not great for US kids.
So if important people already know about this and it is negatively affecting our program, why the big secret?
Reminds me of the recent so called NSA leak scandal.
NSA has been snooping on everyone since the electron was harnessed and everyone has known this, but now profess shock.
Well, maybe not the best analogy, but if the dirty laundry is known...?
Maybe not in your interest to discuss or maybe you don't know.
Whatever the case, if I were you, I'd either lay it all out there, or zip it.
Nothing gained by the implications associated with your post that I can see except plant a seed that produces a cloud over the program.
Why do that?
