UCSD D1 Sports: 50 Yards Away Yet Again

Deez Nuts

So that didn’t take very long did it? Stephan Curry usurps King James Game of Thrones style in the NBA, the government says the economy is still on the upswing and not only does UCSD think they can actually play sports, but that they think they can pay for it too. Well as the adage goes, “if you can’t bring the game, don’t bring the ball” and as we’ll show, UCSD definitely cannot bring the game.

To give you a basic impression of the kind of thinking underpinning the argument for D1, our friends at the  had this to say:

…We belong in D1 because our average SAT score is 170 points higher than the D1 average…

By their (flawless) logic, the fucking Warriors should step down for King Triton and his big, swinging Verbal score even though our basketball team could still get trounced by a group of inner city high school kids.

Yeah they have a point. Why should our valiant squad be limited to getting their faces kicked in by the mongrels in Division 2? Let’s put that better average vertical leap in D1 to good use, and let our boys get stomped all over the yard (at the low, low cost of 11.9 MILLION FUCKING DOLLARS).

While we’re on the subject, let’s talk about money. The proposed bill calls for a piddly $480/year increase with an additional 3% increase to be added every year after for inflation (D1 sports is better funded than the fucking minimum wage, trufax). What could we do with the phenomenal amount of money it raises that’s not nearly as fucking retarded as funding a D1 program?

  • At $200/sq ft, you could pave 2 miles of 6ft-wide sidewalk with crocodile skin. We could cover Library Walk and the other PRESTIGIOUS parts of our campus in the best couture money can buy.
  • At $21/gallon on amazon, you could buy a whopping 10,120 gallons of lube to fund the thousands of UCSD virgins’ relentless masturbatory conquests.
  • You could pay for the phrase: “EAT A DICK, UCLA” to be sky-written over San Diego about 15 times a day for $11.9 million.
  • You could build a water-slide from the glider port to Black’s beach with a return chairlift (hell, ticket sales could pay for it!*)
  • If we actually want to get good and productive, we could spend a fraction of what is being proposed on cash purses for intramural sports. What better way to get people excited about a collegiate athletics program than give them the chance to win a few thousand bucks? Hell, you’d have random people being conscripted for new teams every day in Geisel.

And these are just the proposals we thought of that are slightly less retarded than D1 sports. Actual alternatives proposed by serious people (fuck them) range from paying for libraries to stay open, bolstering scholarship funds, or make more student parking on campus for fucks sake. But clearly those are way less important than making sure we get to pay for a handful of troglodytes to throw a pigskin around, right?

But shit, these are just the Koala’s zany ideas; what does the actual NCAA have to say on if D1 is a good idea? Essentially, not what the “pro” crowd has been feeding your complacent asses. From the organization’s own 2016 Revenues/Expenses report:

  • Sport-for-sport expenses outweigh revenues across the board (p.36)
  • Women coaches are paid on average one-third what male coaches are (p.39/TAKE THAT TITLE IX!)
  • That D1 sports even without the hilarious waste of money that is football similarly hemorrhage money (p. 75) and….
  • That on average, student fees end up accounting for 42% of athletics dept. revenues (p.92).

But these are just numbers, and if you’re a supporter of D1 sports, there’s a pretty good chance those have never mattered to you. Let’s look at what actually happens at schools with D1 programs. UC Berkeley will serve as a good example, seeing as so many of you stupid fucks wanted to go there anyway.

Alex Saragoza, a longtime ethnic studies professor turned into systemwide athletics administrator, was suspended in 2000 after it became known that he’d retroactively enrolled 2 students in Spring 1999 courses (which they never took) and gave them C’s, just so that they could play football. The funniest thing is that suspending him from teaching his Chicano Studies classes didn’t accomplish much, because he taught those classes for free. It’s implausible that anyone could teach that particular course for free, unless of course he was paid $207,000 a year from the office of the UC President.

If we get a D1 program, maybe we too can get unapologetic grade inflation by some ethnic studies crank paid more than you can ever expect to make upon graduation from your hard science. I mean, it’s not like your degree is worth anything WITHOUT a D1 program, right? Shit, someday just maybe, we too can even have all our alumni ditch the school after our undergrads riot in defense of a child-rapist coach as our comrades at Penn State so artfully did. Because clearly, paying for tickets to watch our gladiators get slaughtered by some other school’s much bigger gladiators is the only prerequisite to a sane college experience. Or more likely it’s comprehensible to vote for a VOLUNTARY $490/year fee increase (WOW! $5 cheaper than the shit they tried to pull in 2012) only when your mommy and daddy are footing the bill.

*your opponents see no need to accurately represent costs or revenues, so why should we?

Koala Staff Get The Inside Scoop: Behind The Denouncement

Koala Denounced

Yesterday the UC San Diego administration released a statement denouncing The Motherfucking Koala. We thought it was very, very cute. What you may not know is that we knew about the statement days before it was published. We tasked our recruits to go undercover in order to infiltrate Ballsdeep Pradeep’s headquarters, documenting his meetings, files, and private items. They were incredibly successful. Behind the piles of dental dams, curry flavored lube, and empty cans of Gerber’s Vegetable Turkey Dinner flavored baby food, we found Prunedip’s computer. On that computer, we found the following chain of emails:

Well guys, looks like the Koala mentioned black people again, we may need to do some damage control…I’m thinking a nice denouncement message will calm the uppity student body.

Also, who’s got a hook for coke? These damn Del Mar hookers don’t know how to share.

Black people? You mean in the drinking game? I whooped your ass Coleslaw, you handle pull exactly like the small Indian man-child trapped inside your body.

I’ll text you my dealer’s number. His name is The Tijuana Testicle, don’t ask why, and don’t look him in the eye. His shit is so fire you’ll be lucky to pound an 8-ball and survive.

No, not the drinking game you pansy. Does my 69-second wine bag pull mean nothing to you? I got you back when you passed out and I dunked my balls in your mouth: BALLSDEEP BABY! You know what absinthe does to you. The warm delights of your entrails, the gentle weeps, the dripping orifices – I plugged your holes real good Juanny boy.

Sorry I’m late to your little discussion, sometimes I get caught up thinking about how much my last name sounds like ‘submarine’ and how I’d rather be on one than dealing with 30,000 crybabies.

That gangsta musical list was my favorite. Did you see what they said about you in the political quotes Pradeep? Spot on! Spot on! How did they know you said those things?

We’re getting derailed here. How about a denouncement? I’ll have the new big-titty intern do it. We don’t even have to send out a mass email, just put it up on the website.

UCSD Unveils New Dangerous Space On Campus

dangerous_space

Too long have trigger warnings plagued the airwaves. Too long has the no-blacks rule been removed from our campus. Too long have students not been free to offend their hypersensitive peers. “Spam Musubi only $1” and “Holy shit they opened up Starbucks” have replaced the long-gone chants of “Nigger nigger nigger nigger nigger.” Next week, that will all change.

Administrators at UC San Diego are creating an all new, state-of-the-art Dangerous Space for UCSD students who just don’t feel like their needs have been met on campus. In the past few weeks, the lack of dangerous space at UCSD has become increasingly apparent; students have been lashing out with puppy parades, non-violent protests, and other equally safe gimmicks. Safe spaces at UCSD are commonplace, and threaten individuals who do not like feeling safe. The logical next step has been taken by the university in creating a place to fairly support all UCSD students, continuing the university’s theme of inclusion and equality.

Located in the center of Library Walk, the new Dangerous Space is the ideal place for students to do whatever the hell they want. Senior Frank Yu gave The Koala the following statement: “The needs of dangerous-space students have been overlooked for generations, but UCSD is finally recognizing what means the most to 19-year-old Asian nerds: fucking a dead body with a picture of my waifu taped on the face.”

F. Yu isn’t alone. Not only will this new dangerous space allow people of all ethnicities and sizes – even unnaturally large sizes – it will allow for knifes, guns, opinions that might be different than yours, drug paraphernalia, sharp writing instruments, and explicit pornography.

The new Dangerous Space is guaranteed to get students excited for a good time, and will probably end like all good things do, with body mutilation and feelings of remorse.
