Mark Twain’s advice should be ringing in Bill Hancock’s ears right now.
… On the Sugar Bowl benefiting from Ohio State’s suspended players being able to play in the game: “I think even if those players had not played, the stadium was almost full and I think it would have been even if they hadn’t played. I think the national interest in the game would have still been the same. I just don’t buy that there was any benefit to the game significantly or to TV or to college football in general from them having been there as opposed to not playing.”
Delusional or cynical, take your pick.
