Not wanting to hurt anyone's feelings, the NCAA is discussing awarding trophies to all D1A teams for participating in football each season. Whether you go undefeated or winless, everyone should get a trophy for trying hard and playing fair. That's what it's really all about.



Seriously, gtfo NCAA.

I, um, buhhhhh, yay?

Cause letting 6-6 teams in wasn't enough.

Hey, this isn't a bad idea. I still proudly display my all my T-Ball participation trophies.

And juice boxes too?

Seriously, their reasoning is "well, we told the bowls they could have games no matter what, so we have to let teams play in them."

No, you don't. You could tell the bowls, "tough luck, your bowl is last in line and there aren't enough teams. Better luck next year." Kinda like how you would tell a sub-.500 team, "tough luck, you lost more games than you won, better luck next year."

In youth track they used to give kids trophies every time they finished the mile. When I was cleaning out my closest before I left for college I had like 40 of those trophies, there is definitey something wrong with that.

I hear Case Keenum's mom is discussing taking everyone out for Pizza and Ice Cream(potentially) after the game as well.

Don't know, but I'm pretty sure John Blake will offer those to prospects in order to play for UNC.
