Each was playing in a so-called ‘guarantee game’ — one in which it faced a ‘guaranteed’ humiliating defeat in return for an appearance fee. That weekend, Bethune-Cookman University received $450,000 to get manhandled by Florida State University 54-6; Florida A&M University received $900,000 to get walloped by Ohio State 76-0; and Savannah State received $375,000 from the University of Miami to get trounced 77-7.””

    Oh, but… How about ‘cage football’? Or ‘roller-derby football’? Or ‘monster truck football’? I mean, ‘most perverted’? Please. The possibilities are endless, and, as my old man used to say, “Rich or poor, it’s nice to have money.”

    MattF: Well, but I was thinking of the specifically masochistic nature of these games….

    We don’t have D-1 football, but when it comes to basketball, I have suggested that we drop our conference affiliation and have not just one, but three teams. All will lease themselves out to be slaughtered by the big guys every week. Dividing the scholarships among the three teams will help ensure that none of them will spoil things by winning.
