michigan thankfully does not feature
DAYS UNTIL JEREMY GALLON
HOLDS ON TO THE DAMN BALL! TAKES THE DAMN BALL TO THE HOUSE!
I did a search of the forums and website and didn't find anything so I apologize if this has already been posted.
This link is the .pdf of RRs contract with Michigan, the USA Today must have filed a FOIA or something, its pretty interesting as it has his buyout and terms for dismissal.
In section 4.02 (e) the contract states: The University has the right to terminate the employment of Rodrigez for cause in the event of the following:
(e) Rodriguez is determined by the NCAA, the Big Ten Conference, or the University to have committed a major violation of the NCAA Rules, or to have intentionally committed any other type of violation of the NCAA Rules, pursuant to section 2.05 of this Agreement.
Doesn't this mean that the University could fire him without paying the $2.5 million buyout?
EDIT: I'm in my 4th year of med school so all this law talk confuses me and makes me feel like I'm getting sued, glad there are so many lawyers on mgoblog. If anyone couldn't tell by my avatar, I'm a big RR supporter, I just thought the actual wording in the contract was interesting.
I don't really think that calling it the St. Petersburg Bowl makes it sounds any more traditional. Southern Miss vs. Louisville. When they ain't fighting in a dance off, they are apparently playing football.
Saban is at it again. Paying $50 dollars an hour to use the DP facilities all the while improving the facilities for free. Now obviously ESPN will spin this as a charitable gesture by Saban, but it has slime all over it.
I am writing to you today to make a plea for the laying down of our armed keyboards and missle delivering mice. I made a post a day or two ago that may have been buried in a long thread.
The RR/JH debate has spiraled into recruiting fights, anger at the cloak wearing Dave Brandon, the Michigan Robot scandal, and all around ultra-sensitivity to threads gone awry. I wish to share it again and hope that this holiday season and thread brings compliments, praises, Michigan football photos, strategies to beat the evil Bulldogs from Favrissiippi, remembering why we are all here in a place where maize and blue drip from every hyperlink, and being thankful to the wonderful forum in which we can allow ourselves to escape the harsh realities of work and society. Intellects do your things, MGoComedians do your thing.
The time? Four days before Christmas 2010. The place? MGoBoard. It has been months of the most devastating warfare in Michigan blog history. New posts were used with sarcasm, vitriol, nuclear warfare, and facepalms.The negging and bombing was horrendous and yet there was a call between RR, JH, and Hoke supporters to cease fire and they crawled out from behind their computers to peacefully celebrate the Gator Bowl. They sang Hail to The Victors, exchanged lol catz, posbanged each other's posts, posted funny pics, and buried their hatchets. This peace would last through New Year's Day. In the following weeks, hundreds would be negged in to Bolivian until a new leader was crowned. The next year, they would be united against the enemies of good once again.
A man can dream, a man can dream.
As reported by Dave Biddle (@davebiddle). According to his twitter profile, he is "a sports journalist who covers Ohio State Buckeyes football and basketbal for Bucknuts.com."
"Could be some bad news on the horizon for OSU football. Hopefully none of this is true. Will report back when I know more."
"Possible improper benefits. Players meeting with compliance officials today."
EDIT: Just to keep all the relevant info in one spot... subsequent tweets:
"Word is a tattoo artist was giving out free tats in exchange for autographs from OSU players. Again, nothing has been confirmed."
"Just talked to a current player and he is denying that any of this is true. Says he would know about it b/c it would be 'locker room talk.'"
"OSU's sports information department is also denying that any players met with compliance officials today."
