Best thing I've read on tumblr.

  • Professor : You are a Christian, aren’t you, son?
  • Student : Yes, sir.
  • Professor: So, you believe in GOD?
  • Student : Absolutely, sir.
  • Professor : Is GOD good?
  • Student : Sure.
  • Professor: Is GOD all powerful?
  • Student : Yes.
  • Professor: My brother died of cancer even though he prayed to GOD to heal him. Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But GOD didn’t. How is this GOD good then? Hmm?
  • (Student was silent.)
  • Professor: You can’t answer, can you ? Let’s start again, young fella. Is GOD good?
  • Student : Yes.
  • Professor: Is satan good?
  • Student : No.
  • Professor: Where does satan come from?
  • Student : From … GOD …
  • Professor: That’s right. Tell me son, is there evil in this world?
  • Student : Yes.
  • Professor: Evil is everywhere, isn’t it ? And GOD did make everything. Correct?
  • Student : Yes
  • Professor: So who created evil ?
  • (Student did not answer.)
  • Professor: Is there sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things exist in the world, don’t they?
  • Student : Yes, sir.
  • Professor: So, who created them ?
  • (Student had no answer.)
  • Professor: Science says you have 5 Senses you use to identify and observe the world around you. Tell me, son, have you ever seen GOD?
  • Student : No, sir.
  • Professor: Tell us if you have ever heard your GOD?
  • Student : No , sir.
  • Professor: Have you ever felt your GOD, tasted your GOD, smell your GOD? Have you ever had any sensory perception of GOD for that matter?
  • Student : No, sir. I’m afraid I haven’t.
  • Professor: Yet you still believe in Him?
  • Student : Yes.
  • Professor : According to Empirical, Testable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says your GOD doesn’t exist. What do you say to that, son?
  • Student : Nothing. I only have my faith.
  • Professor: Yes, faith. And that is the problem Science has.
  • Student : Professor, is there such a thing as heat?
  • Professor: Yes.
  • Student : And is there such a thing as cold?
  • Professor: Yes.
  • Student : No, sir. There isn’t.
  • (The lecture theatre became very quiet with this turn of events.)
  • Student : Sir, you can have lots of heat, even more heat, superheat, mega heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat. But we don’t have anything called cold. We can hit 458 degrees below zero which is no heat, but we can’t go any further after that. There is no such thing as cold. Cold is only a word we use to describe the absence of heat. We cannot measure cold. Heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the absence of it.
  • (There was pin-drop silence in the lecture theater.)
  • Student : What about darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as darkness?
  • Professor: Yes. What is night if there isn’t darkness?
  • Student : You’re wrong again, sir. Darkness is the absence of something. You can have low light, normal light, bright light, flashing light. But if you have no light constantly, you have nothing and its called darkness, isn’t it? In reality, darkness isn’t. If it is, were you would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn’t you?
  • Professor: So what is the point you are making, young man?
  • Student : Sir, my point is your philosophical premise is flawed.
  • Professor: Flawed ? Can you explain how?
  • Student : Sir, you are working on the premise of duality. You argue there is life and then there is death, a good GOD and a bad GOD. You are viewing the concept of GOD as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, Science can’t even explain a thought. It uses electricity and magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one. To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing. Death is not the opposite of life: just the absence of it. Now tell me, Professor, do you teach your students that they evolved from a monkey?
  • Professor: If you are referring to the natural evolutionary process, yes, of course, I do.
  • Student : Have you ever observed evolution with your own eyes, sir?
  • (The Professor shook his head with a smile, beginning to realize where the argument was going.)
  • Student : Since no one has ever observed the process of evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavor. Are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you not a scientist but a preacher?
  • (The class was in uproar.)
  • Student : Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the Professor’s brain?
  • (The class broke out into laughter.)
  • Student : Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor’s brain, felt it, touched or smelt it? No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established Rules of Empirical, Stable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says that you have no brain, sir. With all due respect, sir, how do we then trust your lectures, sir?
  • (The room was silent. The Professor stared at the student, his face unfathomable.)
  • Professor: I guess you’ll have to take them on faith, son.
  • Student : That is it sir… Exactly ! The link between man and GOD is FAITH. That is all that keeps things alive and moving.
  • That student was Albert Einstein.
Don't these college athletes get scholarships for a free ride in school and graduate debt free? If not, then that's what schools should do rather than compensate athletes.





All athletes don’t get free rides. No, they don’t get to graduate debt free. These kids starving and working like slaves all while their school makes billions off jersey sells, game attendance, TV deals and sponsorship deals. Can you not see how wrong it is to make that much money off of a person and then not cut them in on enough of a percentage eat a decent meal? Why should Jameis Winston, an 18 year old that won the Heisman trophy, as a freshman and led his team to a National Football Championship and is the biggest name on the baseball team, have to steal food? They made millions off his jersey last year. People filled up stadiums to watch him play. He’s doing more work than 90% of the country. I’m sure he’d work a part time job if he had time. Why can’t he afford crab legs? That’s called pimping and it’s bullshit.

I work in NCAA compliance. Right now, there are a lot of changes going on in governance that will be more effective into addressing the financial needs and concerns of the student-athlete.

I have varying opinions on the matter when I look through different lenses: that of an NCAA employee, that of an NCAA employee who works at a power 5 d1 school (there is a HUGE difference), that of a fan, that of a friend of student-athletes who do struggle…..there are many ways to look at this issue.

Being a former college D-1 student/athlete myself, I promise you there is absolute no reason these athletes show be hungry. The amount of money these schools make off these players is well over quadruple what ever scholarship amount they decide to give them. Also, NCAA has a point system that limits the amount of ” full-ride ” scholarships can give out. More college athletes than you’d like to believe are in the same boat as regular students as far as financial aid is concerned. If you really dive into how the NCAA works you’ll see how close to slavery it really is (money wise).

Yes, the university makes money off of the student-athletes (SA). For my school, the football team is the sport of gold. Someone posted how much it cost the school per player. Turns out that between the players education, hotel rooms, private plane rides and many other perks, it cost more the have the football team then the football team was making for the school. Crazy right! I have 2 really close friends that play d1 football and I’ve seen them “struggle.” When you spend the money you do get from the school (and I know they get money. I use to work in the office) on weed, alcohol and other pointless, useless and dumb crap, then yes, there is a good chance you will struggle for what you really need. I don’t know about yall, but I would love an all expense paid trip to Hawaii or Florida (bowl games) in December with my best friends to do something I love and get free gifts from sponsors. Also, they have time to work a solid part time job. Don’t fall for that bull. One more crazy thought: If the SA isn’t on a sport scholarship, that would mean he/she has student loans building like the rest of us. That means he/she get a refund check that he/she wont start paying back until after college just like everyone else. If they can’t stretch $5000 (give or take) like everyone else then maybe that SA needs to stop focusing so much on the volunteer “slavery” they are doing and take a finance class
