  1. Yet FBI didn't investigate the banks rigging Libor , gold, and currency markets which vastly affects your life on a daily basis. Your tax dollars hard at work worrying about college sports instead of your ability to feed your families or buy a home….

  2. The only reason the FBI is involved is because there are millions of dollars changing hands and the govt. is not getting a cut, so it has now become a target. It’s what the govt. does when they feel things are getting too big to control. IE “war on drugs”

  3. 5 Now, I’ll just start where I left off this morning then, over in the 4th chapter of Acts. And so…And begin, I believe, along about the 10th verse of the 4th chapter of—of the Acts of the apostles, or, acts of the Holy Spirit in the apostles. See? We always think that, call that, “The Acts of the apostles.” But it wasn’t the acts of the apostles. It was the Holy Spirit in the apostles, acting, you see. The men, themselves, were men, and they couldn’t act. Before I go any farther…
    54-1219E – Acts Of The Holy Spirit
    Rev. William Marrion Branham

    1 John
    Chapter 3
    24 And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.
    1 John
    Chapter 3
    9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

    10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.
    2 Corinthians
    Chapter 11
    For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.

    3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
    Chapter 4
    And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.

  4. Another option would be to just lose the 1 and done rule so players could go straight to being pro or just let the players make endorsments when they play for college, not even letting them do that is foolish

  5. The NCAA is sharecropping 2.0. They are primarily exploiting football and basketball for huge paydays. The FBI is only there to make sure the kids don’t get paid and punish those who pay them. This can only be solved if the student athletes unionize. Let’s face it, the NCAA is a corporate conglomerate that takes advantage of slave labor athletics under the guise of education.

  6. The players should be paid between $10,000 to $100,000 depending on their skills and academic achievements. Especially for kids who come from poor backgrounds, they have nothing and these mostly rich WHITE men profit off these kids. Let's be fair and honest with these kids

  7. The whole institution not paying players I don't mind since they get full scholarships. What I can't understand is this whole amateur status bullshit. If a player can make a name for himself that shouldn't disqualify him from being able to play college basketball. Not paying kids based on the money you make from them is pretty bad enough, but to prevent them from cashing in on their fame when you the NCAA are making millions off these kids is just straight sinful.

  8. Steven and Max hosting and mostly running First Take is great with the opposing connections and agreements concerning the topics talked about involving media sports related issues and successes they have had and have currently. Max even beats the previous show topic commentator host on the show Skip. Skip show sucks in my personal opinion from watching, and his co-host does too.
