that is nice bonus change
"According to Sports Business Journal, that deal will pay the 10-member league $90 million annually. That's $30 million a year more than the first-tier deal with ESPN/ABC that runs through 2016."
This does seem like a windfall for the Big12. However Staples fails to mention the uneven revenue sharing in the conference which could still hurt the conference's long term viability.
You might want to do something about it.
another rittenberg bit from his time in ann arbor:
mattison kind of looks at him a little like "who are you again?"
Russell Crowe needs to return to the Big House and catch UM-ND under the lights this year. Many will remember him attending the 2007 UM-ND game at Lloyd's request and sporting a block M hat. Maybe Lloyd could give Brady Russell's number.
I thought this was a good article that clarified some thoughts I already had stewing around in my head. It sounds like Cam Newton had a very similar read progression that Denard had last year.
Essentially, I think Denard was at level 1 last year, which is all you need in college when you are faster than everyone else on the field. The West Coast Offense generally requires the quarterback to be at level 2 and the receivers need to make the same reads, although I did just read that a receiver sends a signal to the QB to let him know what they are reading, so the QB knows what to throw. That might mean the QB has less responsibility in this particular system.
However, moving from level 1 to level 2 could explain a lot about why Denard is having a hard time adjusting to the new system. Hopefully, he can take in more of the playbook and gain some more understanding during the off season and come out in the Fall ready to go.
