    I was reading an article regarding a new rule that the NCAA will enforce this fall on how schools must trim down their media guides to 208 pages. Such schools like Michigan, whose media guide is 416 pages long will have to severly trim down their guides for the fall. I believe 416 pages is a bit long but don't you think a schools should have a right to decide how thick they want their book to be. There are more problems facing the NCAA than those of oversized media books. Heres a link to the article if you want to read it: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2005/football/ncaa/05/13/bc.fbc.monstrousmediagu.ap/index.html

    I guess it's not fair that schools with over 100 years of football have more stuff to fill their media guides then other schools that haven't been playing as long. Gotta keep parity on all levels, you know...

    Man, what a load. This should be struck down as an affront to free speech.

    Hey Tennessee, I was talking about the NCAA, not your post. I agree, it is a load of crap!

    The NCAA bitterly resents being completely taken out of the equation that determines who the national champion is in Division 1-A college football, and thus takes out their frustration by nit-picking whenever possible.

    Of course, they've always been very good at nit-picking, making a mountain out of a molehill, passing ridiculous ticky-tack, micro-managing rules about something we wouldn't think has any consequence, etc., etc., etc. It's what got them booted to the sidelines in the first place.

    Instead of trying to implement a Div 1 football playoff system, the morons in Kansas are focusing on the number of pages in the media guide. Amazing, absolutely amazing.

    Does anyone else find it shameful that a SEC SCHOOL is one of the schools that pushed for this rule?
