The ruling by U.S. District Judge Audrey Fleissig cites a provision in the U.S. Constitution declaring that federal laws take precedence over contradictory state laws.
How does this square with the 10th Amendment?

There seems to be consensus on two things. First It looks like everyone is waiting to see how Maryland plays out. If the first escapee makes it out okay we might see a jail break. Secondly, UNC holds the keys to keeping the ACC together so if the ACC jailers walk away to the B1G, the inmates will leave in mass and no one, including Maryland will owe anyone a penny. It all comes down to the Big Ten.

Well thought out and written but don't assume FSU to the B10 is a done deal until it's a done deal. I get the feeling that the biggest problem with the B12 is leadership. Why not look right into the future and propose a Big XVI conference and network now? Why not go to FSU, Miami, Clemson, GT, UNC/NCS & VT with a network deal now? A big bold proposal to merge and surge into SEC land for the best conference rivalry in college football? Why wear bifocals when someone with some vision is what they need?

I still think there is a chance for the B1G to get Notre Dame and Boston College. I really don't see them going south for GT or UVA when they can make a great case for an ACC like deal for ND and take the entire Boston Northeast TV market with BC. I do believe the SEC will take one of the NC schools and VT. The beauty is it leaves FSU, UM, GT, Clemson, 1 NC school and UVA or L;ville to go to 16. Given the collaboration between the SEC and B12, the geographic lay overs in the south makes for some great rivalries....something I'd like to see given all this realignment business.
5 months, 1 week ago on The big picture of conference realignment
America may have the most people incarcerated because we are the most free people in the world and well...free people do a lot of stupid things. Should we decriminalize crime and if so, which crimes or like the police states with lower incarceration numbers, should we follow their example and intimidate them, beat them into submission or otherwise control their behavior?
As to the NDAA comment, I don't think the Brandon Raub case is connected to the NDAA. Raub's case appears to be a State of Virginia action. I suspect we have many states, similar to Virginia that have "temporary detention orders" or similar laws on their books intended to evaluate a citizen whose behavior or threats may be a danger to himself or others. What is most troubling in the case of Brandon Raub is the feds using the state law to detain a Virginian based on what they, not the state, thinks is troubling behavior in need of an intervention or a pro-active crime prevention order. This case needs to be watched and followed closely.
As to Bradley Manning, he joined the military and is completely subject to their rules, especially in the realm of espionage. I have no sympathy for him and his case needs to come to a conclusion like any other spy case.

Totally disagree. FSU and CU to the B12 asap. B12 will Divide and Conquer our be conquered. ESPN is not negotiating against itself, they are creating a Fab Four monster and will own it. BE an ACC will combine to a larger market/conference and have other bowl opportunities. B12 is foolish not to strike while the iron is hot. to sit around is to invite disaster. i don't believe a word of this article, iut has no real logic...it has logic but disastrous logic.

The BIG XII and the SEC are overlapping each other and together will make CF an NFL like event. I can't wait to see the ACC collapse and the best of the ACC roll into the Big XII and SEC. What's left will likely merge with what's left in the Big East and the new ACC will actually look a lot like the old Big East. This is all just awesome news.

I doubt 16. 11 & 12 look like a lock to be FSU and Clemson. A land rush will ensue for 13 & 14. GT, VT, UMD, ND, NCS all in play.
12 months ago on Big XII, FSU Writers Weigh in on Expansion | May
@edelswick It seems like FSU and Clemson are close to done deals. If the B12 goes to 14 there will be rush hour traffic at the ACC exits. GT & VT make sense. UMD is DC and Baltimore TV Markets..DC No.7 & Balt No 19. Notre Dame is wild card to pair with on other...so I think Nos. 13 & 14 will be either, VT, GT, UMD or ND and the Big XII will end it there. B1G might pick off ND and UMD. In either situation the SEC, Big XII, B1G and PAC will dominate college football.

Miami is an NCAA mess and UNC is the problem. Here's to the BigXII taking FSU, Clemson, VT/UMD and ND.
Are you saying FSU, CU,GT & Pitt?? in order to lure ND as #15?? I'm surprised at that. Why wouldn't ND join with the addition of GT, FSU and CU? Why would ND hold out for No. 15?
If ND wants to be 15, why not add VT instead of Pitt? VT is a much better product and carries the DC market. UMD may be a shambles but much has a bigger TV market in Balt and DC and unlike Pitt still fills their stadium for games.

@Nahila Totally disagree. As the FSU BOT chairman said, no one puts down the ACC on their resume. Basketball? Really? Have you seen what the basketball schools did to the Big East? As to travel, if FSU and Clemson leave the ACC, look for rush hour traffic at the exits. UMD was interested in leaving last year. GT now interested? Virginia Tech left the Big East and could leave again. NCS and VT are on the SEC wish list as well. Who's next? Notre Dame? ND will have to join the B1G or B12. In the end, the Big XII could end up with an Atlantic Division! Oh the irony.
Excellent advice. The most valuable real estate in college football are the vacancies in the Big XII. Fill them with top brands from the ACC and the Big XII will eclipse the SEC and dominate college football. Gimme FSU, Clemson, NCS and UMD and that is one tv centric, killer football conference.

If CF goes to a 4 team final to determine the teams for the NC, then why not make the Rose Bowl part of that process? It's an American classic that could be preserved.

@ca dawg Vote your conscience and politics aside, this article is entitled "Ban College Football". What I wrote is a viable answer on how football as we know and love it could be banned. I told you who would ban it and how they would get away with it, with your support. The politicians will do it and you/we will vote for them for doing it. That's politics and that's how football will get banned. I even said they (the Liberal Progressive Marxists aka Dems) would make you, the fan part of the problem by make football look like the Roman gladiators.
George Will a conservative commentator and when asked about football injuries by Jake Tapper he said: WILL: It's in trouble for two reasons. First of all: The human body is not built for the violence that is inherent in football at the highest level. Second: People are gonna watch football differently from now on because they're gonna feel a little bit like the speculators in the Colosseum in Rome, watching people sacrificed for their entertainment with a kind of violence that is unseemly.
This is how your freedom to enjoy football is turned against you to make you out to be some kind of sick Roman attending the Colosseum to watch the Trojans or Spartans fight...all due apologies to USC and MS but that's how it works. This is how we lose our freedoms. Politicians. That's the politics of sports. Hope you forgive me....gotta run...I'm late... I drive a clown car now to save the earth from the f'n weather and my daughter has been caught selling cupcakes!

@JRsec The Left will get rid of football with your acceptance and your demands to do so. How you ask? First by demonizing football like Progressives demonized everything they've weakened and taken over. Hmmm how about those evil coaches and owners profiting off of those poor concussion brain damaged victims of that evil, imperial game? Like the Roman gladiators, the colleges, athletic directors, university presidents and of course all those advertisers, television tycoons, greedy owners and yes the entire capitalistic system that exploits those poor football players. When the Marxists have you up in arms over that and feeling good about yourself by "saving" those football victims then you will see an endless stream of new regulations and rules. This is how the Marxists, Progressives, liberals and RINO's have won control over energy, education, banks, real estate, health care housing, agriculture, our churches and soon your beloved football. You will clamor for more well meaning rule changes and regulations, everybody will get on board to help avoid concussions and injuries of every kind. Before you wonder whatever happened to the game you will be left cheering your favorite football team out there playing with a nerf ball and velcro attached flags to cute little shinny short shorts. The girly men will feminize the sport until you secretly begin to form secret games in the woods or start attending jousting or rugby games. If they catch on, the whole insidious process will start all over again. Think that professor and those Marxists controlling us now can't ruin football? Think again. they've ruined everything including our Constitution. Well Gotta run...I have to budget in some extra time because I ride a clown cycle now in order to save Mother Earth from the f'n weather!
