Honestly, I was more interested today to read about the decisions on the NFL rule changes this coming year. I know it's important and all, but I don't see it having that immediate impact on the product that is put on the field as rule changes do.
Also, who gives a fuck about Northwestern? They're an academic school.
I think you'll see it's a considerable change, but it won't be felt for a couple years.
Yeah. That is more in line with my reasoning. One team that I don't follow in another conference doesn't show up on my radar. If/when it starts to reach that critical mass where it becomes either a majority or at least a considerable force will be when I start paying more attention to it.
Edit: I would be infinitely pleased if this somehow leads to there being college football games again.

The ruling will be appealed and battled in courts for years, but we are finally starting to see some change that should have happened years ago. Also, at this time, the ruling only applies to private schools, but I'm sure it won't be long, or hard, before someone makes the same case for public universities as well.
When the lawsuit was first announced I thought the NW athletes may have overshot the target, part of me still feels this way, but I'm hoping the end result is somewhere in the middle.
