College Football Today with Nate Griffin & Brett Dolan.
HOUSTON (CBS-Houston) – Rice Head Football Coach David Bailiff is our featured guest in the debut of College Football Today. He talks about preparing for the 2014 season after a 2013 season that saw the Owls finish 10-4 and win their first-ever C-USA championship. Now, the priority is to keep the momentum going as the Owls prepare for their spring game which is set for April 11th.
Speaking of games, Texas Athletic Director Steve Patterson has no current interest in scheduling football dates with Texas A&M. Reasons for and against are discussed which extend beyond the state scope.
Finally, how will the Northwestern ruling on the unionization of college sports affect collegiate athletics? Some Division I schools stand a better chance to withstand the tide due to the many different revenue streams available such as television and big-gate revenue. Regardless, the question that begs an answer is whether or not collegiate athletes are on their way to being compensated. The percentage of Americans in favor of paying college athletes spreads across cultural boundaries and is somewhat surprising in the year 2014.
That and more is discussed during the College Football Today Podcast with Nate Griffin and Brett Dolan. Also, please respond on twitter @coloranalyst and @Brettdolan24 respectively.
