107. So you agree that bloated football programs are the problem...
But you aren't as big as the guys on the football team. So you'd rather tear down the women's sports programs. Actually, I'm quite sure most of the women are tougher than you are. They may weigh less, but the also whine less.

Are you wrestling because it's your one true love? Did you ever consider practical aspects when you selected that sport? I mean, scholarship possibilities--not a future in professional wrestling?
