Bill Hancock says...."There is nothing to see here folks, move it along."

"Goodness gracious, with all that's going on in the world right now and with national and state budgets being what they are, it seems like a waste of taxpayers' money to have the government looking into how college football games are played," he said.

Paraphrasing Bill Hancock here: "We are just a little old country boy doohickey bunch of kids strapping it up on Saturday afternoons cause we don't have anything better to do. I wish those mean old feds would leave us alone and let us get back to molding young people's minds...."

Another story out yesterday.... The Pac-10 agreed to a 12-year television contract with Fox and ESPN on Tuesday worth about $3 billion, allowing the conference to quadruple its media rights fees and start its own network. The contract, which will begin with the 2012-13 season, will be worth about $250 million per year, guaranteeing each of the 12 schools in the conference about $21 million, a person familiar with the deal told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the contract has not been announced.

21 Million.... a year. BSU's whole athletic budget is only what, 26-28 million? The Broncos have to have athletes sleep on floors and couches just to try to get by and get some summer work in. Mr. Hancock, you are starting to sound like a raving lunatic. I don't know much about Antitrust, but I do know this, this is big business, and to pretend it is some small time operation just sounds lame.
