If he doesn’t start doing a parody of the two Night at the Museum movies, it’ll be a colossal failure.

Can't wait for The Atlantic hit piece on how the security guard is actually a 25 year old social media influencer hired by the museum :lol:

NOL carrybacks for 5 years for 2018-2020 tax years now in the new regs. Interesting

That's what they did in the 2009 recession, too, as long as you weren't a tarp recipient.

Yes but consider that pre 2018 years had a higher tax rate - decent opportunity here

Perfect opportunity to divorce sports from academic institutions. Lets do it.

Definitely be a tough divorce but I would like to see colleges more concerned with the quality of their education instead of the quality of their football team. But I also see that colleges with good sports teams make more money than ones with mediocre sports teams. In today's internet world wouldn't it be easier and much cheaper to have higher education done at home?

A U21 football minor league would probably take care of most of it on its own. You want to get your balls beat in at Alabama to make your coach rich or get paid right now? It would suck the labor right out of CFB and the rest of the sports would lose its subsidy.

So nearly every other college "sport" like arrow-chucking and anything done for survival (swimming, running, etc.) is basically toast without grants/donations...?

I'm cool with that, to be clear because I obviously don't care for those recreational activities, but just making sure I understand...only football, men's basketball, men's ice hockey can likely be pulled out independently...golf seems to be nebulous and could just swallow up amateur players without a problem, tennis too...meh, this kind of works as I'm typing it out...

Yes. All college sports should be intramural, if at all.
