Re: The Future of EWU Football?

I'd like to understand the economic dynamics of why college has nearly outstripped regular inflation by 5x. I know there's a demand component and expectation of attending college these days that drives up costs to some extent, but I don't think that explains all of it. http://inflationdata.com/arti...

Re: Professional Athletes - Activism & Racism

Activism for human rights (legit, hypocritical, misguided or otherwise) is different than activism for Jesus (legit, hypocritical, misguided, or otherwise). Huh? What if the human right in question is the freedom of religion, i.e. the freedom to worship Jesus. That’s not what Warner was preaching f...

This type of activism is frowned upon.
By a good number of liberals and atheist. They didn't like Tebow or Wentz doing it either.

Re: The Future of EWU Football?

Similar to what is going on across the country. Case in point, Oregon State recently announced an anonymous donation of $50 million dollars to renovate the west side of Reser Stadium, but a bunch of professors are protesting the donation, saying that football does not contribute to the mission of t...
