    I'd like it if Notre Dame beats Georgia Tech today.

    Also, I could really go for a Mountain Dew and some chips and queso.

    I wonder what it's like on Jupiter.

    I like vanilla but I can't stand chocolate.

    Where is the remote?

    The Devil made me do it.

    Here we go again. Ninth US Circuit Court of Appeals agrees that the NCAA violates antitrust laws, but they strike down the plan to pay student athletes $5,000 per year beyond their cost of attendance, saying that ruling was erroneous.

    I don't completely agree with this article other than the fact that there's less hurdles, but still some:
    I think to truly allow for the game to make a return, it will require EA & the NCAA to make a waiver that players must sign. If they refuse, they don't appear in the game and cannot be created in the game. In either case, they couldn't receive any additional compensation.

    Short of that, the NCAA will have to allow players to sign endorsement deals, which you know they don't want "amateurs" to do.

    The author is just flat out wrong. NOTHING in that quote deals with EA's future liability to future players if NCAA 17, etc... returned. (unless it is in the unquoted footnotes). The 9th Circuit in the quote is rejecting the NCAA's argument that O'bannon et al. cannot prove any future harm b/c there is no more NCAA series.

    Then make the rosters completely random from the first startup.

    Rank each position group from 1-10 in terms of how they compare to the rest of the country. Once that is done, they can create a ratings range for each position group ( a 10 would be like 75-99). Every player for that group would be rated in there.

    There. Easy solution to the problem. We may not have accurate players, but it's close enough.
