Eventually you wont need a tv per se but just your pc will do with streaming, hulu and other avenue of content.

I can't watch Tv on a PC.

In a few years, we may not have any choice in the matter.   shrug  We shall see.....

That was my point.   nod

The vast majority of TX Southern alums are not aware of the endeavor.  As someone stated above, it will take more than a button on a website.  That is not realistic.   

As the Bison pointed out, unfortunately, TX Southern is not alone.   no

A quote from the link.....

Quote
Finally, we must enact an all-hands-on-deck approach to educating young men of color. That means linking teachers, parents, principals, after-school and Saturday programs, mentoring and a high level of community involvement.

To succeed, teens need to know - and be reminded again and again from a wide range of responsible adults - what behavior will and will not be tolerated.

Its from South Africa I believe.

Okay...Thanks. I could not determine the accent of those speaking.

I did not find it funny.

This commercial is not being shown in the US, is it?   shrug   Considering the mkt, I would not think that it would.

*Sigh*  

Where does one start?   shrug


Giving the TX Southern alumni the benefit of the doubt, perhaps if there was a stronger fundraising campaign for the effort, maybe more would contribute.  

I realize that is a weak argument but knowing some HBCU alumni, raising $$$ can be a difficult task regardless of the cause.   Sad

This nut is going to lose his foot AND go to jail.  I guess that is the price one pays for being stupid.

MAN, the SEC is just no joke on all fronts

In the SEC, athletics is serious business and all about maximizing the $$$.   nod

......... but Marvadene Anderson is already a giant on the court. At just under 6-foot-11 -- and still growing -- she's the world's tallest teenage girl.


To say that this girl is tall is an understatement.   Best wishes to her in her future endeavors.   nod

He accomplished many things in his lifetime.  May he rest in peace. 
9419  Discussion / Sports Forum / Re: UF football revenue tops in state; FAU, others struggle on: December 28, 2009, 02:26:18 PM
J, one other thing to consider is like USF and FIU, FAU started playing football with the sole intention of going I-A.

They are relatively big schools that started their programs within the last 15 year for one reason only; to be I-A.

I am aware of that.  I also know that the first few years of the program, FAU began as an independent in D1AA.

Jafus,

Regarding FAU, I found data for 2005 with that being the last yr that they were classified as D1AA.  However, the archived file  that I where I was looking did not have break out football revenue.  It combined rev/exp for all sports except football and bball.
