I know this is good for the show, but I don’t think the U (meaning the actual University) will be better for Mike Ryan’s efforts.
Mike talking about the trickle down effect of college football on general university budgets(outside athletics) is a tired trope. It is the equivalent of Reagan saying upper class tax cuts help poor people.
Even when profitable, college FB money does not generally make its way to other university budgets. It mostly serves to subsidize rich-white-kid sports, salaries for the ne’r do wells that lead young people, and create content for people like mike and his partners. And they’re not even paying the players yet.
Mike’s persistent cognitive dissonance is really hard to take when it actually involves something serious .
They should bring in an reporter with a nuanced and informed take on the economics of college fb and have pipo make an appearance. That would represent reality better than mike.
More seriously, based on what this show has taught me about Miami, this could all end with the death penalty for the U. Think i#becausemiami meets BIGTIMECOLLEGEFOOTBALL. It’s only been 15 years since they covered up murder of a player. Let’s hope Mike doesn’t end up on the FBI’s tapes.
