I hope it emboldens other players.

Forcing players to play in an epidemic is nuts.

and it demands that Stanford use its $27 billion endowment to reinstate the sports it cut earlier this summer.

Sitting on 27 billion but tuition goes up every year.

bfh0417: So, basically, BLM wants everything focused on blacks. Not equally focused, totally and entirely focused on blacks. Yeah, okay.


And? You're having a hard time believing that the focus of civil rights movement is the group that needs civil rights changes?

Or are you oppressed too? You poor thing

Self-quoting from the other thread, they're growing up fast because someone has to be the adult in the room.

I was going to post a pic of a hottie wearing a tight Stanford T-shirt with the caption "What a large Stanford endowment might look like," but then I remembered this isn't the awesome 2005-era Fark anymore.

Perhaps you fail to grasp what BLM means, n00b. It is not the Bureau of Land Management.

Really?  It's "reasonable" for a college sports conference to end Racial Injustice in society?

I have no position on their endowment but a large endowment allows for big returns.

If you have $27B and get a 10% return that you pull out and use for scholarships isn't that better than drawing down your endowment and getting a 10% return on $20B?

That's not how endowments work. Usually there are stipulations a university accepts as part of being granted an endowment. They may not be able to touch the principal at all and require a certain percentage of the interest be rolled back into the endowment.

Well, maybe not the one where players unrelated to a private University "demand" that that private University reverse a decision that it made that had nothing to do with PAC-12 Football.

WoodyHayes: WillofJ2: Do athletic profits feed academics at all?  If not just cancel it all and let these student athletes get a year of free education

At big boy programs, the money that the athletic department makes off of football often gets donated back to the university proper and pays for buildings and salaries of the idiotic professors who complain about how much a coach gets paid but can't be bothered to find out where the money comes from.


It also goes to pay for the lesser sports that alumni don't pay for and sells no tickets: field hockey, crew, etc...

kkinnison: what are they going to do? not pay them?

LOL


Those on athletic scholarships could lose those scholarships.

How many of the players that lose scholarships because of this do you think can just come up with the amount of money required to attend the universities in question?
