Kilpatrick: ‘College athletes should be paid.’

“Absolutely,” Kilpatrick said. “The schools, there’s so much revenue coming in. You have these players’ jerseys in the stores and you make posters of these guys and they don’t even get a share of what’s going on. The least you can do is give them a share when they leave or graduate.”

Agree to an extent. If this happens, universities and the NCAA need to better regulate payments from boosters. Which does happen (read below).

UC Baseball Update- April 11

Despite the turmoil in getting to Philadelphia (and since), the Bearcats managed to bounce back for an 11-5 victory on Saturday even though Ian Happ missed that game as well due to “disciplinary reasons.”

Basketball Arena A Top Priority For Mike Bohn

I can’t imagine a project to make Fifth Third a first class arena coming in at less than 80 or 90 million dollars, which is out of the budget. It can be made a better basketball venue for much less than that by keeping the configuration as is, but with permanent seating in the lower bowl for 40 or 50 million, but that won’t work either IMO. Renovating Fifth Third on the cheap is a half measure, just like building Fifth Third as a combination Basketball Arena/Rec Center/Athletic Department Hub was a half measure to start with. It doesn’t fix the problem, it just makes it livable for a bit longer.

Want to Play in an NFL Stadium? That’ll Be $12 Million, Please

The proposed $12-million fee would help finance upgrades in the 11-year-old stadium. This season the Eagles are expected to add new video boards and 1,600 new seats. The contract also proposes raising Temple’s rent to $3-million a year, from $1.8-million. (Under the agreement, the Eagles would still keep all parking and concession fees.)

Price Not Right for Cincinnati Reds on Friday Night

On the night, Cueto went for a strong seven-inning performance, surrendering just five hits and four walks in accordance with his six strikeouts.  In what has unfortunately become a trend, he got zero run support.  For his seven innings on the mound, Cueto had a whopping three hits behind him.  Typical, the ace of the staff will matchup against the opposing teams ace, but to have such a horrifically low number of runs scored in support of any pitcher is enough to drive them up a wall.
