Sunday live thread: How would paid athletes affect your college fandom?

Thanks to the O'Bannon v. NCAA trial, there's been a lot of talk about whether college football's (or college sports' in general) popularity would decline if student athletes were to get paid. Granted, there are thousands of levels of "paid," some of them far more aggressive than others. But here are five questions for you to answer on a potentially lovely Sunday morning.

1. If athletes win the right to be paid for their name and likeness (probably in the three- or four-digit range per year), would it make you enjoy college athletics less?

2. While we wait for the O'Bannon decision, check out CBS' Jon Solomon on the 20 moments that shaped college football's popularity in the last 30 years. For the cfb fans in the community, what's your favorite non-Mizzou moment of that span? (It doesn't have to be on Solomon's list.)

3. Yesterday was Justin Britt Day in Lebanon. What's the one event that would absolutely have to be a part of the festivities on [fill in your name here] Day in your hometown?

4. Who you got, Holland or Mexico (11am on ESPN)?

5. Who you got, Costa Rica or Greece (3pm on ESPN)?
