College Football Sanctions and Pettiness

Image result for ncaa

So, three Michigan State football players had warrants issued for their arrests in a sexual assault case dating back to January. After the law enforcement officials announced that, the players were dismissed from the football team. Of course, that is deservedly so, but I have one question: Why did it take so long? The school had been conducting its own investigation for a while, but the team made no action prior to the actual law enforcement concluding their investigation. I just want to be a broken record on this issue because I need to be. That sort of behavior is ENTIRELY unacceptable, and college football teams need to stop giving their players breaks on those actions. If it were up to me, Baylor University would no longer have a college football team due to all of the sexual assault issues they’ve had. Now, I understand that very rarely, women will make claims that are NOT true just to get attention. So, there needs to be a short period of time for the players to prove their innocence before being dismissed from the team. But, if an investigation about that behavior goes on for five months?! The players should not be allowed to remain on the team for that long, even in a suspended state. It’s time that the NCAA start holding these schools and teams accountable in some way. They can’t just take away recruiting benefits or bowl games, they need to start suspending entire football programs. I’m talking Michigan State college football should not exist for the 2017-18 season AT LEAST. And I mean what I said about Baylor: they should no longer have a college football team. At least for a decade. It’s time that entire universities start feeling the pain of allowing that behavior to happen. What better way to punish the universities than to take a significant amount of their income away?

I don’t even know that I want to say much on this quote. This is mostly just here for thought because it is truly remarkable. The funniest thing about that quote is that most people who read it probably think, “But, adults’ arguments are based on logic!” Are they really though? I would bet that 95% of adult arguments (AT LEAST) are not based on logic. Humans by nature are very emotionally driven in everything. 75% of what you believe is just that: what you believe. There is no logic to it AT ALL. The other 25% has a fraction of logic in it. In the words of Thor (portrayed by Chris Hemsworth), “You people are so petty, and tiny.” Ironically, those words ring a little hollow knowing that Chris Hemsworth recently complained about his exclusion from Captain America: Civil War and his seemingly limited role in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War.

*Side Note: When I Googled “logic” to link to the word, all of the top results were about the rapper named “Logic”. That’s how unimportant REAL logic is to the majority of society.*

*Side Note: When I Googled “NCAA” for the logo I found this awesome picture! I have to say, I’m surprised that Cal dominates so much of California. Fresno State and San Diego State are the only two teams I would’ve guessed had smaller fan base areas than Cal in the state.*

Who? What? When? Where? Why? How?

I realized something today. I realized why I’m a Boise State fan. But, I won’t say why, because I don’t want to jinx the Broncos. After all, they’re the only hope that I have left in the sports world.

Depend on. That was a phrase from the magic ticket scene of The Polar Express. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend it. Depending on others can be nice…

I don’t really know where I was going with that.

I was lying in bed yesterday, asking myself one simple question: “What am I doing?” Actually, it’s not a simple question. My answer: “I don’t know.” Also, “I have no idea.” I don’t know what I want. That’s not true. I want the New York Giants and the Boise State Broncos to win. Yeah, lousy, huh? Boring desire. I don’t know what I REALLY want. Actually, I do. Maybe I don’t. I’ve told you before that I write to talk through things with myself, and inspire you. I want to make a difference to others. I have made differences to others. I should’ve specified that I want to make POSITIVE differences to others. I have made some. Not all. I think and feel too deeply. I only argue with others because I argue with myself. I argue with others because it presents some clarity to have the perspective of others. I argue with myself because only I understand my own perspective. Except I don’t. If I did, I wouldn’t argue with myself. It doesn’t strengthen arguments with others when you don’t know how to win an argument with yourself. I feel…lost. I thought I knew what I wanted. I never knew. I will know. When? What do you do when you don’t know who to believe? When you don’t even trust yourself? I don’t know. I have no idea.

You don’t know how much time I spend staring at my screen, wondering what to write. When this happens, I usually leave my hands on the keys. I feel as though there is some energy traveling through my hands, and into the keys. Positive or Negative? Both? I think the full extent of what I want to write, into the keys. Then, I type what I SHOULD write. Can you blame me? The internet isn’t exactly, trustworthy.

-Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz threw his first career INT (Detroit Lions CB Darius Slay) in the Eagles first loss of the season to the Lions. The Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins, however, both won, while the New York Giants lost. So, the Giants are now last in the NFC East.

-The Cleveland Browns are now onto their 4th string QB, Charlie Whitehurst. Yeah, 3rd string rookie QB Cody Kessler got injured in their game against the New England Patriots, today. The Pats, however, had starting QB Tom Brady return from suspension. He claimed he was a little rusty after throwing for over 400 yards and 3 TDs against the Browns. Of course he did.

-New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr righted his wrong with the kicking net on the sideline. After getting into an altercation with it two weeks ago, Beckham gave it a hug during Sunday Night Football. Kicking nets are people, too!

That’s all for TheHaysWay today, make sure to leave a much-appreciated like. Also, thank you for reading. I don’t say that enough. Also, please leave a “You’re welcome” in the comments if you actually read this far. I appreciate you reading through the confusion that is my mind converted into words, and I’d like to personally thank those of you who read my posts all the way through. Have a pleasant tomorrow.
