I don't have a problem with the football product or any other athletic product that PSU has fielded. In fact, I appreciate the fact that PSU is starting a hockey program allowing the Big Ten to have a hockey conference. It will give my university, Minnesota a chance to get back at PSU for all the football drubbings over the years. I love college football and other college sports. I appreciate what they bring to the college life. What I don't like is they have entirely too much influence on what is supposed to be EXTRAcurricular, not the basic reason for being. The fault of that can be television money.
SMU barely contributed to the demise of the Southwest Conference. You have to show me proof of that. Television money is what contributed to the demise of that conference.
