Take this as one of those “when life throws you a fastball down the middle, you’ve got to turn on it” moments: Auburn lets recruits play Madden on its $14 million dollar scoreboard.
Robin Williams’ comment about cocaine comes to mind about now.
A Power 5 football commissioner actually said this.

These guys don’t deserve to run a hot dog stand, let alone a major sports enterprise.
It’s not every day you see a university chancellor’s office get involved in a pissing match with a college football blogger.

In other words, we have to destroy college football to save it.
There are times when I wonder if we deserve being able to enjoy things.
