This #OccupyWallStreet continues to churn up interest and blog posts.
It's spreading to small cities like Roanoke.
It's time to take it to the next level.
College football.
Think about it.
It's not fair that some teams have success year after year while others struggle on the field.
Look at poor University of Virginia, watching neighboring Virginia Tech stay among the college football elite.
The Hokies have used roads paid by Virginia alums to recruit players away from the Cavaliers.
It's just not fair.
Virginia Tech got into the Atlantic Coast Conference thanks to its proximity to the University of Virginia. How do they show their appreciation? They beat the Cavaliers on the field year after year.
It's not fair.
With Frank Beamer taking the best players for himself, Virginia is left looking for scraps - hoping for six wins to go to a minor bowl.
It's not fair.
It's time for #OccupyLaneStadium. A protest against big football leaving the rest of us with nothing to cheer for Saturday afternoons.
I think the protests could spread. All across this nation, there are millions of college fans who sit by the wayside as the top one percent grab TV exposure, BCS bowls and the big bucks.
What are some other protest sites?
In early November, depending on the winner of the big game, you could have #OccupyDeathValley or #OccupyBryant-Denny.
Maybe #OccupyCampRandall, since people in Madison seem to love protesting.
Finally, something to try and get an Instalanche.
How about #OccupyNeylandStadium?
Nah. The Volunteers haven't been in the top one percent for years.
