Brewers & Baseball Topics / MLB Baseball game length (time wise)
« Last post by TomM on Yesterday at 11:27:15 PM »
My brother is at a Brewers game. Not sure what time it started, but about 9pm they were in the 5th inning. NINE PM, FIFTH INNING! Yikes...

My suggestion: 3 balls, 2 strikes per at bat. End of story. Maybe games move along. Sheesh...

Don't they usually do their mission trips before starting college?

Schools like BYU and Utah could be at a disadvantage with a significant % of their student athletes serving 2 year missions for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.  Unless the athletes hold off the start of their eligibility until after their mission concludes.

Not that this idea would actually ever happen.  Just fun to discuss.

Beats reading another Aaron Rodgers drama story.

When we have athletes competing and "able" to go to school for 6 years it makes for economic inequities.  I think if it were fours years like the DIII we would have more parity as well.  It is very unlikely to happen however with college football being the development arm of the NFL.  Too much money there for it to change.
I actually believe DI sports should be like DIII.  You get fours years, period.  If there were no red shirting it would change little as everyone would be on the same page.

Very interesting idea. Four years running clock. Start when you want but when you start you have 4 years (I believe that is how it is done in DIII). It would hurt the kids who lose a year to injury but it would be fair for all. With a red inappropriate term5, medical red shirt and potentially Olympic red shirts an athlete can be in school a long time. Does not make a lot of sense to have athletes in their 6th or 7th year competing against 18 year old athletes.

Kind of crazy idea MN but I think I like it.

I am not saying I am in favor of all this, just that one can get a degree from any institution.  Truthfully, I feel an athlete should choose the school for their sport.  People from every academic institution succeed in all areas after graduation.

Interesting point MN regarding the transfer portal ramifications.  I could easily see a coach reluctant to do a red shirt on someone because it could end up being a free year of development for some other program.
